The article discusses an observational case study of using high speed anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) to evaluate intraocular lens (IOL) tilt. It cites the importance of accurate positioning of an IOL in the capsular bag to the prevention of postoperative IOL tilt and astigmatism. The study involved 123 eyes of 92 patients with uneventful phacoemulsification. The high resolution of OCT is one of its advantages over ultrasound biomicroscopy.
