Kelman lecturer works toward improving accuracy of IOL calculation

BOSTON — Warren E. Hill, MD, has a vision for improving accuracy of IOL power calculation through mathematical “brute force” and algorithmic finesse. Hill and an “algorithm dream team” have been working on a proof of concept project that moves beyond modern theoretical calculation formulas to predict IOL power with greater accuracy. The method relies on radial basis functions (RBFs) to replicate the nonlinear relationships inside the eye. For his innovative efforts, Hill was honored to give the Charles D. Kelman Innovator’s Lecture at the American Society of Cataract and (Read more...)
