In this interview from AAO 2021, Dr. John Berdahl discusses the use of premium and toric IOLs in glaucoma patients. Conventionally, premium IOLs have been contraindicated in patients with glaucoma. Presbyopia-correcting lenses in particular can potentially impact contrast sensitivity in those with severe glaucoma and prior filtration surgery. But for many patients, Dr. Berdahl contends, correction of astigmatism with a toric lens can be safely considered, and combining with a MIGS procedure is frequently an ideal approach.
