Calculation of IOL power after refractive surgery

Ioannis Mallias1, Panagiota Mylova1, Anastasia Tassiopoulou1
Ophthalmol J 2017;2(2):44-48.

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to identify and describe the methods used nowadays to calculate intraocular lens (IOL) power in post refractive surgery patients. All the reasons why the standard way of calculating IOL power do not work in post refractive surgery patients are analysed. Moreover, other formulas that can calculate the IOL power are described. The importance for the surgeon to understand the advantages and limitations of each method is stressed. The necessity of new, even more accurate methods to exist is also pointed out.
