  • Causa
    Due to a software defect iol calculation printouts and exported reports can contain wrong iol power data (mix-up of lens types; calculated iol power does not fit to stated lens type) if a specific and unusual operator sequence is followed and the healthcare provider does not recognize that the second calculation is identical to the first although a different lens type was selected., this could lead to order and implantation of iols with wrong lens power and to (correctable) impairment of patient's visual acuity.
