Educational Objectives

Ophthalmologists who attend this course will:

  • Compare and contrast current treatment modalities for the surgical correction of presbyopia and identify appropriate treatment protocols to meet individual patient needs.
  • Recognize the clinical impact of visual quality at various ranges of vision (near, intermediate, and distance), chromatic aberration and depth of focus, to improve proper lens selection and maximize the visual quality in today’s presbyopic patients.
  • Accurately identify and define treatment parameters for residual refractive errors and implement treatment algorithms to address residual refractive errors after the surgical correction of presbyopia.
