• Optical biometry can identify macular pathology before cataract surgery

    8 monthes ago - By Healio

    Historically, ophthalmologists have used optical biometry primarily for the purpose of IOL calculation by obtaining corneal and axial length measurements. Today, with new technology, optical biometry has the potential to provide more than just verifying measurements. It now offers an advantage to physicians by enabling them to identify certain macular pathologies that are, oftentimes, not easily detectable on our slit lamp examination.
    When patients have dense or opacified cataracts, it is sometimes difficult to obtain a clear enough view of the macula to confirm a healthy contour when we are
