Small refractive changes may occur long-term after cataract surgery

April 28, 2016

According to researchers, long-term changes in refraction after cataract surgery resulted from natural fluctuations in corneal curvature rather than from the IOL position shift.

In 59 eyes of 59 patients a mean age of 70.7 years, the repeatability coefficient of IOL positions measurements taken at 1 month, 3 months and 1 year postoperative was 0.03 mm at all visits.
