Presbymania 2018 – Israel

Dr Johan de Lange was invited to present two lectures at this year’s Presbymania conference held in Tel-Aviv, Israel, from 25 April 2018 to 1 May 2018.

The Presbymania Group is a group of international ophthalmologists with a specific interest in presbyopia. Presbymania was founded in 2009 by Dr. Jerome Bovet. The aim of the group is to meet annually to discuss presbyopia related issues.

Dr JA de Lange presented the following two lectures at this years’ conference:

  1. Comparing Ten multifocal IOL’s over Ten years
    In this lecture he compared all the different multifocal intraocular lenses that he implanted in his practice over the last 10 years (Alcon ReStor, Lentis Comfort, Zeiss Tri, Hanita Seelens, Hanita Bunnylens, Tecnis Symfony, Alcon Panoptix, Rayone Trifocal, Physiol Finevision and the INFO lens from Swiss Advanced Vision).

He discussed the characteristics of all the lenses and also compared the clinical results and side effects obtained in his practice during the last ten years.

  1. Hanita MF IOL’s
    In this lecture he discussed the specifications and characteristics of the Hanita Bunnylens and the Hanita Seelens which are both bifocal lenses. He also discussed the clinical results of the lenses and compared the results to those of other multifocal lenses.

During his time in Israel he also visited Hanita who took him through the factory that manufactures the Hanita lenses.
