IOL power calculation post keratoplasty

Sepehr Feizi, Mohammad Zare, Bahram Einollahi
Purpose. To report outcomes of graft refractive surgery (GRS) along with clear-cornea phacoemulsification and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) eyes. Methods. Fourteen eyes of 13 patients who had received PKP underwent simultaneous GRS (relaxing incisions with or without counter-quadrant compression sutures) and clear-cornea phacoemulsification with IOL implantation. To calculate IOL power, preoperative keratometry readings and the SRK-T formula were used. Results. Mean patient age and follow-up period were 50...

Although there are many formulae for the calculation of intraocular lens power in the eyes with previous kerato-refractive surgeries, unexpected refractive bias still exists. Hyperopic bias is particularly disliked because it affects both uncorrected distance and near visual acuity. Surgical treatment of the residual hyperopia for the eyes with both laser in situ keratomileusis and cataract surgery remains to be a big problem. Conductive keratoplasty has been shown to be an effective, safe and predictable method for low and moderate hyperopia in the pseudophakic eyes or in the eyes with kerato-refractive surgeries...

PURPOSE: To evaluate change in graft steepness after graft refractive surgery (GRS) consisting of relaxing incisions with or without counterquadrant compression sutures and discover the existing influential factors. METHODS: In this retrospective study, 78 eyes of 76 patients who had received penetrating keratoplasty for keratoconus underwent GRS because of high post-penetrating keratoplasty astigmatism. Any shift in graft curvature was calculated using the keratometric coupling ratio (CR; the ratio of flattening of the incised meridian to steepening of the opposite meridian)...

PURPOSE: To investigate changes of corneal power after descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK). METHODS: Anterior, posterior, and true-net (anterior + posterior) power of post-DSAEK and contralateral transparent corneas were measured, using the Pentacam rotating Scheimpflug camera (Oculus Wetzlar, Germany), 6 months after surgery in 23 consecutive patients who had undergone unilateral DSAEK at the same medical center. Moreover, in each cornea, Pentacam pachimetry was measured at the vertex and at 3 mm from the vertex, to calculate corneal thickness increase (CTI)...

The importance of quality of vision (QOV) along with quality of life (QOL) in medicine has been recently widely recognized. We have conducted studies to quantitatively analyze factors related to QOV. Irregular astigmatism can be a significant obstacle for achieving satisfactory QOV. Videokeratography data were broken down using Fourier harmonic series analysis into spherical power, regular astigmatism (second harmonic component, n = 2), asymmetry (n = 1), and higher order irregularity (n > or = 3). The irregular astigmatism component calculated by the Fourier analysis significantly correlated with best spectacle-corrected visual acuity...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of laser thermal keratoplasty (LTK) on corneal power and refractive error to develop a logical approach to calculating accurate intraocular lens (IOL) power for cataract surgery. SETTING: Department of Ophthalmology, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, Seoul, Korea. METHODS: Laser thermal keratoplasty was performed in 27 eyes of 23 patients. Preoperatively and postoperatively, the refractive error was measured and the corneal power obtained by manual keratometry and topography...

Twenty-one consecutive triple procedures (keratoplasty, cataract extraction, lens implantation) performed by one surgeon using identical suturing technique, donor size, and donor/recipient size disparity were analyzed for visual outcome and refractive error. Ninety-five percent of all grafts were clear with an average follow-up of 11.8 months. Of patients with good preoperative visual potential, 84% achieved 20/40 or better visual acuity, and the majority of these patients obtained 20/40 acuity within 6 months of surgery...

The refractive outcome in 44 eyes that had combined penetrating keratoplasty and intraocular lens insertion, with at least 6 months follow-up, was analyzed. All patients were operated on by the same surgeon using two types of trephines in all but one eye, and one suturing technique with nylon or dacron sutures. The intraocular lens power was calculated using SRK II formula with an assumed average post-operative keratometry of 45 D. The first refraction showed that the mean spherical equivalent was -0.20 +/- 3...
