Published recently in European Ophthalmic Review, the peer-reviewed journal from touchOPHTHALMOLOGY, Hengerer et al, discuss standard cataract surgery, one of the major goals is to reach target refraction. Based on keratometry measurements, axial length and anterior chamber depth, most of the intraocular lens calculation formulae are suitable to achieve this aim. Further evaluation of corneal refractive parameters like anterior and posterior corneal surface by Scheimpflug devices led to a significant enhancement of precision in astigmatic and post-refractive surgery cases.
