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

Table 4

Comparison of predicted refraction error measured by acoustic biometry and optic biometry between the RRD and control groups.

RRD groupControl group valueDifference95% CI

Refractive error (optic biometry)−0.44 ± 0.770.27 ± 0.71−0.71−0.41 to −1.01
Refractive error (acoustic biometry)−0.81 ± 0.75−0.21 ± 0.64−0.60−0.32 to −0.88

Note. Data are expressed as mean ± standard deviation. The values for refractive error were analyzed using Student’s t-test. CI, confidence interval; RRD, rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.
