Ohio eye practice implants trifocal lens — 5 thoughts

Harold Ballitch, MD, is part of a small cohort of ophthalmologists who are using the PanOptix Trifocal Intraocular Lens, the Richland Source reports.

What you should know:

1. Dr. Ballitch practices out of Ontario, Ohio-based Advanced Eye Care Center.

4. The 76-year-old patient said she felt "wonderful" after the procedure and was ready to return to work shortly after her procedure.

5. Dr. Ballitch and the patient could soon appear in a promotional film for the lens.
