Dr. Wolfram Wehner, Head of Operating Surgeons in the Maximillian's Eye Clinic in Nuremberg, Germany, has been implanting the aberration-neutral aspheric CT Asphina 409M/MP and its microincision cataract surgery (MICS) relatives for about 15 years. In this article, he shares his expert knowledge.
Saving 5 Minutes Per Cataract Patient with SWEPT Source Biometry Dr. Singh, President of The Eye Centers of Racine & Kenosha, Ltd in US, reports on how he and his technicians were able to increase efficiency and have all the necessary information for patient consultation.

The ZEISS IOLMaster 700, using SWEPT source biometry, evaluated a dense subcapsular posterior cataract in a 21-year-old male. Abnormal lens fibers attached to the nucleus and underlying posterior capsule were also identified. These were removed during surgery, reducing the risk of spontaneous posterior capsule rupture. Read more about the case here.
Prof. Oliver Findl, Chief of the Department of Ophthalmology at the Vienna Hanusch Hospital, reports how the IOLMaster 700 indicated abnormal macular morphology. Read all about Prof. Oliver Findl's case here.
Prof. Sekundo, chief of surgery at Philipps University, Marburg, Germany integrated the IOLMaster 700 into his high volume clinical practice. Learn more about his experience.
Dr. Mario de La Torre presented his first experiences with the IOLMaster 700 at the "Meet the Experts" event during the ESCRS 2015 in Barcelona. In this presentation, he elaborated on the subject of dense cataracts and how the IOLMaster 700 achieved superior penetration. In his opinion, the IOLMaster 700 offers numerous advantages compared to other optical devices, e.g. much better penetration, lower rate of measurement failure and a more efficient workflow. In addition, this device opens interesting doors to research and new trends in IOL calculation.
Prof. Mario de La Torre from the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos in Lima, Peru, reports about two cases of extreme cataract. While conducting axial length measurements was not possible with any of his previous optical biometry devices, the IOLMaster 700 was able to do this because of its advanced imaging options. According to the case results, the possibility of detecting unusual eye geometries and poor fixation patterns will eventually lead to improved refractive outcomes.

Occult macular pathology in cataract patients is one of the issues of most concern for ophthalmologists when considering premium IOLs. Dr. Sabon Srivannaboon of Mahidol University, Faculty of Medicine, discusses a case, where the fixation check scan of the IOLMaster 700 revealed critical information that led to an additional retina OCT examination – with consequences for the surgery and IOL selection.

Claudio Carbonara, MD in Rome, Italy, was among the first surgeons to receive and test the IOLMaster 700 in October 2014. His conclusion after measuring 400 eyes: "It really seems as though the device has an extra gear when compared to its competitors." Read more about his experiences.

Cataract surgeons are well acquainted with the idea that the natural lens of the eye is subject to structural changes throughout the human lifetime. Knowing about this is one thing, watching it happen is a different matter altogether. Dr. Tobias Buehren from ZEISS presents a case that offers a first glimpse into this process using swept-source biometry.

Taking biometric readings of patients with corneal inlays are not yet routine in daily practice. Given the high prevalence of presbyopia and the high level of interest in spectacle independence this might change. Here a case is presented using swept-source biometry.
Today's cataract surgeons have adopted non-contact optical biometry as the standard in performing IOL calculations. But which specific device will best meet their needs? Amin Ashrafzadeh ("Dr. Ash") wanted to answer this question for himself and undertook the task of performing a prospective comparison of two non-contact biometers - the IOLMaster 500 and the Lenstar LS 900.

This case report of a 58-year-old patient highlights the importance of the IOLMaster 700 SWEPT Source OCT imaging. Firstly, the tilt of the lens can be visualized and secondly, the axial length measurement is highly accurate. Read the full case and learn more about the integration between the IOLMaster 700 and the CALLISTO eye system.
