    Intraoperative aberrometry can help improve refractive results

    Aphakic and pseudophakic readings both provide useful information

     

    “Thus,” he noted, “if acted on, the pseudophakic refraction had a 71% chance to improve the refraction but in 29%, it would worsen.” 

    Drs. Wiley and Bafna concluded that the intraoperative aphakic and pseudophakic aberrometry readings can be comparable with careful control of surgical variables and both can be useful for predicting postoperative manifest refractions. When the variables are controlled carefully, the pseudophakic refraction may decrease the refractive outliers but does appear to eliminate refractive outliers, such that, even with analyzing the pseudophakic prediction, outliers still occur. They emphasized the need for another prospective study.
