Biometry results

The biometry measurements contain the data required to determine the type and power of an intraocular lens. They allow your consultant to select a lens which will give you the best possible vision after surgery. The accuracy of these measurements is therefore of paramount importance. Measurements of the eye will be made using the modern Zeiss IOLMaster, which is a non contact laser instrument specifically designed for this purpose. This machine is widely accepted to be the most accurate and reliable in the field. In addition, a corneal topography assessment may be performed. This machine accurately measures astigmatism and may be required if astigmatism is to be reduced or eliminated in surgery.

Following the biometry assessment, a full discussion will take place with your consultant to decide which type of lens implant will deliver the best possible vision for you.
