The article discusses the highlights of the presentation by Dr. Paul J. Dougherty at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery meeting, wherein he claimed that ultrasound sulcus-to-sulcus measurement is more precise than white-to-white measurement in sizing a posterior chamber phakic intraocular lens (IOL). The results of a multicenter trial using the Sonomed ultrasound biomicroscopy device for sulcus-to-sulcus measurement prior to Visian Collamer lens implantation was reported by Dougherty. He noted the ideal vault in ultrasound patients.
