Measurement of combined corneal, internal, and total ocular optical quality analysis in anterior segment pathology with the OPD-scan and OPD-station

J Refract Surg. 2006 Nov;22(9 Suppl):S1014-20.


Purpose: To show the clinical use of the NIDEK OPD-Scan wavefront aberrometer and OPD-Station software in anterior segment surgery and pathology.

Methods: Case examples are presented along with discussion about the relevant clinical data obtained from the OPD-Scan and OPD-Station software.

Results: Six case examples including cataract surgery, secondary IOL implantation, phakic intraocular lens surgery, pterygium surgery, contact lens fitting, and multifocal ablations are discussed.

Conclusions: A complete understanding of the optics of the eye facilitates a better clinical comprehension of a variety of conditions in anterior segment surgery and pathology.
