Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery: March 1994 - Volume 20 - Issue - p 265-267 doi: 10.1016/S0886-3350(13)80765-1 Buy Metrics Abstract We report the first case, to our knowledge, of phacoemulsification with lens implantation in a patient with previous photorefractive keratectomy for myopia. Intraocular lens calculations were performed using manual and automated keratometry. The surgical and postoperative course were uneventful with a good visual outcome. Standard intraocular lens calculation and surgical technique appear to be successful for cataract extraction after photorefractive keratectomy. © Williams & Wilkins 1994. All Rights Reserved.
