Selection of an Initial Contact Lens Power for Infantile Cataract Surgery without Primary Intraocular Lens Implantation – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To provide guidelines for the selection of an initial contact lens (CL) power based on the preoperative characteristics of the patient in eyes undergoing infantile cataract surgery without primary intraocular lens (IOL) implantation.Design: Cohort study.Participants: Eyes were included if cataract surgery was performed without primary IOL implantation before 1 year of age, a SilSoft CL (Bausch & Lomb, Rochester, NY) was placed immediately after surgery, and postoperative refraction data were available within 1 month after surgery.Methods: The target CL power was calculated by using the postoperative refraction at the corneal plane for each eye. A regression formula was derived (Read more...)
