To determine how well visual outcomes of cataract surgery can be predicted from acuity estimations by visual instruments and an ophthalmologist, the authors compared predictions of postsurgical visual acuity with the measured acuity at 4 months in 82 elderly persons. Comparisons were made between the potential acuity meter (PAM), laser interferometer (LI), and an ophthalmologist, who predicted the final vision before surgery using screening visual information, including PAM, LI data, and… CONTINUE READING
