Advances in the surgical treatment of presbyopia are occurring at a rapid pace, and the refractive surgeon has many options for the surgical treatment of presbyopia. In fact, a new subspecialty of presbyopia-correcting surgeons is emerging, and rapid innovations in technology are sure to continue. With this multitude of new options available, understanding the design and mechanism of each will allow clinicians to match the most appropriate option for the patients' needs, anatomy, and optics to ultimately provide the best outcomes.
