How to improve IOL power calculations in keratoconus
One source of error in IOL power calculation is the use of the classical keratometric approach for the characterisation of the corneal optics. This approach is based on the assumption of only one corneal surface and a fictitious index of refraction (keratometric index, nk) for obtaining an estimation of the corneal power (Pk).
New approach to corneal power estimation in eyes with previous corneal refractive surgery and keratoconus eyes
The use of a keratometric index to estimate total corneal power calculation is imprecise, especially in corneas with keratoconus or after myopic laser refractive surgery. The errors can be reduced by using an adjusted keratometric index, consisting of a variable keratometric index that depends on the radius of the anterior corneal surface.
