IOL design influences the development of posterior capsular opacity, and intraocular lens (IOL) presence influences the likelihood of retinal detachment.
Different axial lengths require different IOL power calculation formulae.
Postrefractive eyes require different calculation methods from surgically naïve eyes.
The presence of silicone oil in the eye necessitates adjustments to biometry. If silicone oil is to remain in the eye, adjustment to refractive target is necessary.
Small angular misalignments of toric lenses can produce substantial reductions in net astigmatic correction.
Modulation transfer function (MTF) curves are a good tool for distinguishing different sorts of multifocal IOLs.
