IOLMaster — Axial Length Measurement
Ideal Display, Clear Media.
In measuring the axial length of an eye with clear ocular media, the
IOL Master axial length display
will typically show the above characteristics.
Remember to use the Best Measurement Technique and sample several
areas around the center of the measurement reticule until the best
is obtained. The important components of accuracy with the
IOL Master are: correct
alignment with the fixation light, measurement consistency, and a
correct display pattern.
Pseudophakic Eyes with acrylic and PMMA intraocular
lenses can sometimes show a falsely short axial length due to a
reflected image. Taking several reading around the center of the
measurement reticule will avoid this problem.
