Scheimpflug Corneal Power Measurements for Intraocular Lens Power Calculation in Cataract Surgery – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To compare the keratometric (K) readings from the Pentacam-HR (High Resolution) unit with the automated K values from the IOLMaster keratometer (KIOLM), and to evaluate them in the commonly used intraocular lens (IOL) power calculation formulas for routine cataract surgery.Design: Prospective, comparative observational study.Methods: setting: Private practice, Lynwood, California. study population: Fifty cataractous eyes scheduled for surgery between July and August 2012. observation procedure: The K readings from the Pentacam-HR unit taken at the 2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-mm zones and the 2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-mm rings, respectively, from 3 different maps: sagittal corneal front (KF), true net (Read more...)
