1907: asteroid hyalosis & cataract surgery

Asteroid Hyalosis is seen in about 1-2% of your cataract surgery patients and it is most often unilateral. These focal opacities in the vitreous can make it challenging for ophthalmologists to examine the retina and posterior segment. But surprisingly, patients are not usually bothered by it and don’t notice these opacities. The question is does this affect your choice of IOL? Would you still be comfortable offering all IOL designs to this patient? All IOL materials? What about light-splitting designs? Please comment below and let us know your experiences and preferences.
