If we use the term 'refractive surgery' however, we can also include other ways to help you get rid of glasses (near and distance) with the options of KAMRA presbyopia inlay -- it is a safe, proven and lasting solution to correct presbyopia and restore your everyday near vision, ICL (implantable contact lens) and Toric ICL, multifocal IOL, trifocal IOL, and Crystalens accommodating IOL can be used for patients for whom the traditional laser methods are unsuitable or who are reaching the presbyopic age and cataract surgery may be looming -- my other surgical passion.
How do you choose between a multifocal and an accommodating IOL? and Do you consider pupil size when choosing a presbyopia-correcting IOL?
(27) Currently, based on this 'optic-shift' concept, the Crystalens (Bausch & Lomb, Rochester) remains the only FDA-approved accommodating IOL. It consists of a 4.5mm silicone optic with flexible hinges grooved into its plate-haptics.
The importance of biometric measurements is even greater in patients scheduled to receive multifocal IOL or accommodating IOL implantation or refractive lens exchange [3].

* Accommodating IOLs enable focus at multiple distances by shifting their position in the eye.
Accommodating IOLs were designed to avoid the optical side effects of multifocal IOLs.
Dynamic options include: scleral expansion techniques; accommodating IOLs; and refilling and disruption of the crystalline lens.
