    Question 2:
    What wavefront data do you use to select Extended Depth of Focus (EDOF) IOLs for patients?

    Thanks to Marco for letting me re-post this; I realize the panel and the video was aimed at OMDs primarily, but so much of the discussion is highly relevant to ODs. -- adam

    Other videos from the Power Forum III:


    Question 1: How does data from Angles Alpha & Kappa, Corneal SA, Coma, pupil size, and Corneal vs. Lenticular Astigmatism improve your premium IOL selections and outcomes?

    Question 2: What wavefront data should you use to select EDOF IOLs for patients?


    Question 3: What are the multi-function benefits of using an integrated Wavefront Aberrometer, registered on the patient’s optical center?


    Question 4: When OSD is discovered prior to surgery, should you postpone the procedure for treatment, or stabilize the tear film, then proceed with surgery?

    Question 5: How do we characterize and localize Astigmatisms within the optical pathway?


    Question 6: How do you manage patient expectations and IOL selection?

    Question 7: How do we measure OPD ROI and monetize the advanced diagnostic test regimen?

    My guess:
    1. Any weird HOA (which is rare by definition)
    2. Any high amount of positive SA would render the EDOF lens more powerful, ergo they may wish to overminus a quarter diopter.
    3. Post-refractive surgery patients probably should NOT be getting these lenses at all.
