It Pays to Use First Post-op Refraction After All When Deciding on Second IOL
January 23, 2010
Contrary to an important paper I read a few years ago, it is advisable to take into account the post-op refraction in the first eye and fudging your numbers for the second. The authors recommend adjusting the IOL by half of the error in the first. The earlier study adjusted it 100%, and that’s why it didn’t help. Nice pearl you can use next week!
