Intraoperative Refractive Biometry for Predicting Intraocular Lens Power Calculation after Prior Myopic Refractive Surgery – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To evaluate a new method of intraoperative refractive biometry (IRB) for intraocular lens (IOL) power calculation in eyes undergoing cataract surgery after prior myopic LASIK or photorefractive keratectomy.Design: Retrospective consecutive cases series.Participants: We included 215 patients undergoing cataract surgery with a history of myopic LASIK or photorefractive keratectomy.Methods: Patients underwent IRB for IOL power estimation. The Optiwave Refractive Analysis (ORA) System wavefront aberrometer was used to obtain aphakic refractive measurements intraoperatively and then calculate the IOL power with a modified vergence formula obtained before refractive surgery. Comparative effectiveness analysis was done for IRB predictive accuracy of IOL power determination (Read more...)
