    In this interview from AAO 2014, Dr. George Waring describes the current landscape of presbyopia correction. Given the prevalence and growing impact of presbyopia worldwide, Dr. Waring believes the surgical management of presbyopia is a critical specialty within refractive surgery. He discusses the factors that help him determine whether to perform a refractive lens exchange or corneal-based laser surgery, and outlines in which patients a blended, monivision approach is preferred to a multifocal lens.
