Arjan Hura, MD:
Good morning everyone. and we are live from the Skirball Center here in Los Angeles, California. My name is Arjan Hura, [and] I'm one of the cochairs for the 17th annual Controversies in Modern Eye Care Symposium. I am so thrilled to be here today, and I'm so much looking forward to a great day filled with educational activities, networking, and just catching up with old friends.
I want to give a sneak preview of one of the talks I'll be giving this morning that's entitled, "Decoding the IOL dilemma." We live in an age now where there are so many different options for cataract surgery when it comes to IOL selection. And sure a simple framework like a standard lens, toric lens, extended range lens, multifocal lens, that is a decent start, but there are a lot of other variables that go into figuring out what patient is the right candidate for a certain technology. We've all had those patients where they have the exact same eyes as another patient, the same lens goes in each eye, but 2 very different levels of patient satisfaction or result.
And so we're going to be deep diving into some of the nuances, and I'll be sharing some of my thought processes that I go through when I see a patient for the first time to really help matchmake them to the proper IOL. So stay tuned. It's going to be a great talk, and I'm really looking forward to catching up with everyone today. Thanks.
