Abstract

Cataract surgery and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation are currently evolving into a refractive procedure. The precision of biometry is crucial for meeting expectations of patients undergoing cataract surgery. Moreover, the optimal results for new IOLs being developed, such as toric, multifocal, accommodative, and aspheric, all depend on the accuracy of biometry measurements.
