Every patient over the age of 50 is impacted by presbyopia, yet only 6.5% of patients receive a presbyopia-correcting IOL during cataract surgery. Without a doubt, cataract patients can benefit tremendously by the guidance of a clinically astute and caring OD. Optometrists perform an estimated 88 million comprehensive eye exams annually of the 104 million performed by all eye care professionals. That’s 85 percent of all comprehensive eye exams.
The combination of excellent care and an expanded menu of IOL options opens up a whole new world of possibilities to patients.-Paul M. Karpecki, OD
