We reviewed the intraocular lens power calculations on 512 posterior chamber lens implantations and determined four ways to reduce the estimated 5% incidence of large postoperative refractive "surprises" (greater than 2 diopters [D]): First, preoperatively identify those patients who have greater than a 1-D difference between the theoretical and linear regression formulas. Second, repeat axial length and corneal power measurements in these patients to eliminate random error. Third, develop an… CONTINUE READING
