Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Purpose of review: To perform a literature review of articles published between 2016 and 2017 to assess recent advances in intraocular lens (IOL) selection. Recent findings: A literature review revealed five areas of recent study including advances in biometric technology, formula selection for challenging eyes, accurate astigmatic correction, adjustment of IOL calculations for postrefractive eyes with and without prerefractive surgery data, and use of intraoperative IOL calculations. Summary: As cataract surgery continues to be one of the most commonly performed surgeries in the United States, it is important to ensure that the most accurate technology, IOL formula, and surgical planning is utilized.
