ABSTRACT
This article deals with a study which examined the use of partial coherence interferometry (PCI) in axial length measurement. Results of the study showed that PCI had no clinical advantage over applanation ultrasound biometry with regards to intraocular pressure (IOP) power calculation based on axial length measurement. The main dependent variable of the study was mean absolute postoperative refractive error. According to the study, PCI failed to measure axial length in several patients.
