ESCRS Secretary Oliver Findl MD delivered the prestigious Binkhorst Lecture to thousands of attendees at the opening session of the 2018 ASCRS Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, USA. In a wide-ranging address on the challenge of choosing the right IOL power, Dr Findl noted that optical biometry, modern formulae and optimised IOL constants, and precise measurements of anterior and posterior corneal curvature by two or more devices have greatly improved IOL selection accuracy. Future developments such as intraoperative measurements to refine IOL selection and adjusting lens power after surgery may further improve outcomes, he added.
