IOL Power Calculations 
Corneal Bypass Method.^{1}The Corneal Bypass Method of postLASIK corneal power estimation is one that was recently described by Walter et al in the March, 2006 issue of the Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery. The advantage of this method is that it is done without having to calculate the postLASIK corneal power. Using this technique, the IOL power is calculated using the postLASIK axial length and the preLASIK keratometry. The target refraction is set for the preLASIK spherical equivalent. This "bypasses" the postLASIK corneal power. The corneal bypass method for the right eye would be carried out as follows using the postLASIK axial length:
The corneal bypass method for the left eye would be carried out as follows using the postLASIK axial length:
