IOL Calculation after Corneo-Refractive Surgery
Haigis W.1, Langenbucher A.2, Seitz B.2
Purpose: IOL calculation after corneo-refractive surgery is a challenge becoming more and more important in the future. When current analytical IOL formulas are applied, difficulties arise especially due to the failure of classical keratometry. Instead, alternative methods were proposed (topography, contact lens method, refractive history method, regression procedures) the results of which, however, are partially not correctly interpreted. A systematic overview of the difficulties of current power formulas and possible solutions for eyes after corneo-refractive surgery does not exist and is attempted in this study.
