Successful Visual Acuity Restoration following a Multifocal Laser Ablation
Millions of people undergo eye surgery each year in the United States. With the
introduction of LASIK in the 1990s, many people aged between 20 and 40 underwent eye
LASIK surgery in the 1990s as the technology was highly embraced among many people with
eye problems. It is noteworthy that cataract procedure is the commonest eye surgery in the
United States. Apparently, cataracts and presbyopia is a condition that mainly affects persons of
ages 60 years and above. Therefore, the people who conducted LASIK procedure in the 1990s
are the risk of getting cataracts and presbyopia but could highly wish to remain spectacle free to
enable them manage most of their activities with much independence of the spectacles thus
deciding to undergo refractive surgery. Presumably, these patients would wish to have a PCIOL
(Presbyopia Correcting Intraocular Lens) procedure. However, the existing data presents very
limited chances of successful visual restoration with PCIOL implantation procedure among
patients who had previously undergone refractive laser surgery. In fact, there exists no published
report regarding the application of accommodative and broad focus and the ERV-IOLs
(Extended Range Vision-Intraocular Lenses). This paper explicates a successful ERV-IOL
TECNIS Symfony implantation at Abbott Medical Optics in California, USA. The surgery
involved a 46 years old male patient who had previously undergone multifocal ablation laser
