    Intraoperative aberrometry may help deliver on posthyperopic LASIK expectations

    Las Vegas—Use of intraoperative aberrometry to select IOL power results in improved refractive outcomes in eyes that have a history of hyperopic LASIK, according to the results of a retrospective study reported by Dan B. Tran, MD.

    The study included data for 350 consecutive cases using the technology (ORA System with VerifEye Technology, Alcon Laboratories) performed by 84 surgeons from 77 different centers across the United States, said Dr. Tran at the 2015 meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

    Mean absolute value of the prediction error (MAVPE) was calculated using data from the patient’s refraction measured at 1 month postoperatively and the predictions using the aberrometry-determined IOL power and that based on the surgeon’s preoperative determination.
