6.1 The committee noted that there are several different lens systems available for this procedure, and that these vary in complexity. The majority of evidence comes from one device.

6.2 The committee noted that the technology and the techniques used in this procedure are evolving.

6.3 The committee noted that there is a National Institute for Health Research funded multicentre randomised controlled trial in progress (the MIRROR trial) and suitable patients should be recruited to this or other similar studies when possible.

6.4 The committee noted that patient commentaries were varied. Some patients reported good improvement in quality of vision, but others reported difficulty in coping with high magnification images and did not achieve a satisfactory improvement in vision.
