The article focuses on the use of intraoperative aberrometry in patients anticipating superior refractive outcomes with cataract surgery. Topics covered include the technology's ability to take into account the effect of posterior corneal astigmatism, the drop in the mean preoperative keratometric astigmatism when the system is used with intraocular lens (IOL) implantation and the need for surgeons to consider both anterior and posterior corneas in predicting astigmatic correction.
