PURPOSE To examine the refractive results and limitations of current intraocular lens power formulas when implanting two posterior chamber lenses in-the-bag to achieve emmetropia in extremely short eyes. METHODS Preoperative measurements (corneal diameter, axial length, keratometry, anterior chamber depth, and lens thickness) and postoperative measurements (refraction, corneal vertex to iris depth, and iris to front anterior lens surface) were taken in six eyes from three patients, with axial… CONTINUE READING
