    How new ‘evolving’ IOL formula maximizes lens accuracy


    Evolution of Ladas Super Formula

    The key behind the Ladas Super Formula is its potential to limitlessly improve. The way surgeons go about improving any formula is to optimize it.

    Thomas Olsen, the inventor of the Olsen Formula, has emphasized certain points regarding the optimization of a formula. He pointed out that optimization is formula-specific, and that other variables, such as ACD, can be used to “optimize” a formula—as shown in his paper on second eyes.1

    The Ladas Super Formula in its current state represents the best of what already exists. However, to reach the end goal of truly accurate lens calculations, we are in the process of developing an evolutionary mechanism for the Ladas Super Formula so it continues to improve.

    We are splitting the Ladas Super Surface into tiny “grid boxes,” which optimizes actual patient data. By making tiny adjustments to all aspects of the Ladas Super Surface in this manner, the current Ladas Super Formula will evolve and improve its accuracy.

    We have developed an algorithm that incorporates and analyzes outcome data and adjusts the surface in all aspects. We have recruited multiple major cataract and refractive surgery groups to supply outcome data to aid the optimization process.
