Peripheral refraction in pseudophakic eyes measured by infrared scanning photoretinoscopy
Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery, 05/04/2012Tabernero J et al.
The peripheral refractions in pseudophakic eyes were more myopic than in phakic eyes as a consequence of the optical design of the intraocular lenses (IOLs). Whether a more myopic refraction of approximately 2.00 D at 45 degrees has significant effects on visual performance must be tested. Perhaps there is room for improvement in the peripheral optics of IOLs.
