In this video from Hawaiian Eye 2017, Jay Pepose, MD explains his system for patient evaluation prior to premium IOL cataract procedures. The first item on his checklist? A scan of the patient’s optical system with Visiometrics’ HD Analyzer to determine if a patient is a good candidate for multifocal or extended depth of focus lenses.
He uses the HD Analyzer to take a quantitative measure of the patient’s tear film quality. If he sees a degradation in the retinal point spread function over time, he can treat the patient for dry eye preoperatively to ensure the best outcome.
