Abstract Details


The purpose of this study is to determine if the axial length (AL) measurements obtained with an ultrasonic biometer before and after hyperopic ICL implantation are the same.


Clinica Baviera, Málaga, Spain


This retrospective study included 16 eyes of 8 hyperopic patients. We used an ultrasonic biometer (immersion technique), before and after ICL implantation to determine any difference in AL measurements.


Mean patients age was 32.4 ± 6.6 years. The mean refractive spherical equivalent was +5.2 ±0.72dp. The mean preoperative AL was 22.34 ±0.88 mm, and the mean postoperative AL was 22.38 ± 0.82 mm, and the difference was no statistically significat (p=0.57). Both AL measurements correlated in a highly positive manner (R=0.968, p<0.001)


In our study we concluded that there is no change in AL as measured by the immersion ultrasonic scan after an hyperopic ICL implantation. So, as whith miopic ICL, there is no need of special measurements for achieving the correct AL .
