Optimizing IOL selection: Focus on IOL calculations in “difficult” eyes
After watching this activity, participants should be better able to:
- Describe the preoperative assessment of ocular health in patients scheduled for cataract surgery
- Discuss biometry and IOL calculations to achieve optimum postoperative refractive outcomes in cataract patients
- Recognize how previous refractive surgeries and corneal pathologies in cataract patients impact biometry, IOL calculations and lens selection
In this activity, experts in ophthalmology, Prof. Sumit Garg and Dr Karolinne Rocha, respond to questions from the ophthalmology community on intraocular lens (IOL) selection in cataract patients, focusing on the preoperative assessment of ocular health, optimizing IOL calculations and the impact of previous surgeries on lens selection.
This activity is funded by an independent medical education grant from Alcon Vision, LLC and Johnson & Johnson Surgical Vision, Inc., and is jointly provided by USF Health and touchIME. read more
