The article discusses a study which found that high-frequency ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) optimized posterior chamber phakic intraocular lens (IOL) sizing and minimized complications resulting from inadequate or excessive vault. Sulcus-to-sulcus measurement reportedly proved to be more precise than white-to-white measurement in ensuring proper lens sizing and vault. The study was published in the "Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery."
