Publication Exclusive: Innovations in optical biometry optimize effective lens position

August 28, 2015

Novel IOL technologies and increasing patient expectations for precise refractive results have driven a series of innovations in biometry and IOL power calculation. Notable improvements have been seen in recent years, and about 1,000 citations for optical biometry currently appear in PubMed.

Optical biometry provides detailed images of critical anatomic structures in the anterior and posterior segments of the eye. Intraoperative OCT has shown particular promise in predicting effective lens position, improving on the traditional use of axial length measurement.
