Resources: K Card
The "K-card" which captures a patient's preoperative keratometry readings and refraction should be given to LASIK patients. It is often difficult to track down this critical data years later, when the patient is need of cataract surgery or additional eye care.

There are a lot of complicated IOL power calculation formulas, but they all have one factor in common – they work best when you have the patient’s preop keratometry readings and refraction. So Drs. Thomas L. Steinemann and Ed Isbey III, came up with a simple idea. Give it to the patients. “This is the most logical way to get the information. Until we have a national database of health records, it’s the next best thing,” Dr. Steinemann said.
