Aim: To evaluate optimal standard intraocular lens power for Nepalese eye camp cataract patients. Method: A retrospective case series of 5109 preoperative cataract patients. Results: Average axial length of 23.08 (SD 1.26). Average dioptre intraocular lens power 21.37 (3.04). Conclusion: An increase in the intraocular lens power used at Nepalese eye camps from +21.0 to 22.5 dioptres would improve overall visual outcome.
