Postoperative Refractive Prediction Error Measured by Optical and Acoustic Biometry after Phacovitrectomy for Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment without Macular Involvement

Table 3

Comparison of predicted refraction error measured by acoustic biometry and optic biometry.

Refractive error (optic biometry)Refractive error (acoustic biometry) valueDifference95% CI

RRD group−0.44 ± 0.77−0.81 ± 0.750.370.22–0.51
Control group0.27 ± 0.71−0.21 ± 0.640.480.32–0.65

Note. Data are expressed as mean ± standard deviation. The values for refractive error were analyzed using the paired t-test. CI, confidence interval; RRD, rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.
