    Dr. Crewe-Brown noted that the presbyopic population is the fastest-growing demographic globally. By 2020, it is projected that there will be 2.1 billion presbyopes in the world, and a significant portion of these individuals have disposable income.

    Among the current surgical methods for presbyopia correction, an important limitation of corneal refractive monovision is that more than 30% of patients cannot adapt to having a different refraction in fellow eyes. An issue for refractive lens exchange is that younger presbyopes may balk at the idea of having an invasive intraocular procedure.
