The article offers information regarding lens calculations deemed important in cataract surgery. It mentions the guidelines which can help cataract surgeons achieve accuracy in lens calculations for interocular lens implant (IOL). It cites case scenarios of postoperative refractive errors and the concepts to use to fix the said errors including keratometry measurement, axial length measurement, and the proper IOL power.
