PURPOSE We determined how accurately we could predict the intraocular lens (IOL) power for a combined penetrating keratoplasty and transsclerally sutured posterior chamber lens implantation procedure (PK/TS-SPCL) compared with the Triple procedure (penetrating keratoplasty, extra-capsular cataract extraction, and IOL insertion). METHODS We retrospectively evaluated the postoperative refractive results of 27 patients who had undergone PK/TS-SPCL and compared them with those of 46 patients who… CONTINUE READING
