Injectable devices that can monitor IOP and adjust therapy 24/7 are on the horizon

The survey also indicated that there is increased interest in extended depth of focus IOLs, at the expense of trifocal and bifocal IOLs (Figure 2).
When respondents were asked about their most current procedure to manage astigmatism in a patient receiving monofocal IOLs during cataract surgery, 80.8% used a toric IOL in patients with 2.50 D of astigmatism; in patients with 1.75 D of astigmatism, 66% used a toric IOL; and in patients with 1.25 D of astigmatism 46% used a toric IOL, which is basically the threshold
