Vitrectomy Improves Vision in Multifocal Pseudophakia

Vitrectomy Improves Vision in Multifocal Pseudophakia

On April 25, 2022 Dr. Sebag delivered a lecture in Washington D.C. to the American Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) entitled “Vitrectomy Improves Vision in Multifocal Pseudophakia”. This presentation was based upon a study of 180 patients treated at the VMR Institute for Vitreous Macula Retina (VMR) in Huntington Beach, Orange County, California who had Vision Degrading Myodesopsia (clinically significant vitreous floaters). Limited vitrectomy, a procedure developed at VMR, was effective in improving vision in all operated patients, even those who had previously undergone cataract surgery with multifocal intraocular lens implantation.

At the conclusion of the meeting, Christina Y. Weng, MD MBA, chair of the ASCRS Retina sub-committee, awarded Dr. Sebag “Best Paper” for his presentation.
