A doctor who recently began his ophthalmic training was trained
to perform A scan for patient's biometry. An audit
performed on his biometry showed that 70% of the patients had a
post-operative refraction of >-1.00DS of spherical equivalent from what
the surgeons intended.
a. What is the most likely reason for his error during A-scanning?
b. Name two methods which may be used to improve the biometry results.
