Study shows decline in refractive prediction error after cataract surgery

December 2008
Ocular Surgery News Europe/Asia-Pacific Edition;Dec2008, Vol. 19 Issue 12, p4
The article discusses research which showed a decline in the mean absolute prediction error for postoperative refractory after cataract surgery. It references a study by M. Kugelberg et al published in a 2008 issue of the "Journal of Cataract Refractive and Surgery." Data from the Swedish National Cataract Register have been collected between 2000 and 2005. According to the researchers, the mean absolute prediction error was related to study year and became smaller the more recent the surgery was performed.
