Specialist ophthalmological surgeons explain to their colleagues how to maximize the benefits of a refractive approach to cataract surgery in order to minimize patients' dependence on spectacles. They also describe methods for selecting and inserting inter-ocular lenses, including the new multifocal varieties. Among the topics are the evolution of refractive cataract surgery, important considerations for calculating the inter-optical lens, the clear corneal incision technique, pacoemulsification techniques, reducing astigmatism, creating multifocality, selecting and counseling patients for multifocal lens insertion, and clear lensectomy for refractive errors.
