Cataract surgery has become more and more “refractive” in nature. We have been able to provide patients with excellent distance vision, but the missing element has been our ability to deal effectively with the loss of accommodation that begins with presbyopia and is rendered complete with the removal of the crystalline lens. A true accommodating lens attempts to have a similar mechanism of action to the human lens, with the ability to focus near, far, and at every point in between. The following text describes surgical technique and clinical results using accommodating lenses.
