Determinate the best method Immersion ultrasonography compared with partial coherence interferometry which is the most accurate method in the measurement of the axial length on myopic eyes that present posterior staphyloma.
A observational ,retrospective and comparison of the measurement of the axial length of 50 cataractous eyes that present high myopia with posterior sthaphyloma and those measures were performed by Immersion ultrasonography and partial coherence interferometry (IOL MASTER).
Immersion ultrasonography and partial coherence interferometry measurements correlated in a highly positive manner (correlation coefficient = 0.8143), and a difference of 0.04 mm of axial length.
The results show that the measurement of axial length in both methods are very similar , precise and accurate on myopic eyes that present posterior staphyloma. Although we need further follow up on IOL power calculation and visual acuity outcome.
