Intraocular Lens Power Calculation by Ray-Tracing after Myopic Excimer Laser Surgery – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To investigate the refractive outcomes of intraocular lens (IOL) power calculation by ray-tracing after myopic excimer laser surgery.Design: Prospective, interventional case series.Methods: setting: Multicenter study. participants: Twenty-one eyes of 21 patients undergoing phacoemulsification and IOL implantation after myopic laser in situ keratomileusis or photorefractive keratectomy were enrolled. intervention: IOL power calculation was performed using internal software of a Scheimpflug camera combined with a Placido disc corneal topographer (Sirius; CSO). Exact ray-tracing was carried out after the axial length (measured either by immersion ultrasound biometry or partial coherence interferometry), target refraction, and pupil size had been entered. main outcome measures: Median (Read more...)
