PURPOSE Intraocular lens (IOL) formulas based on aphakic refraction alone have been proposed as an alternative to biometry-based formulas. The purpose of this study was to determine the relative accuracy of these simplified formulas. METHODS Records of patients who received secondary in-the-bag (IOL) implants and for whom aphakic refraction was obtainable were retrospectively studied. The formulas for IOL power calculation by Hug (J Pediatr Ophthalmol Strabismus 2004;41;209-11) and Khan and… CONTINUE READING
