Because the readings are based on the index of refraction of the cornea and surgery has changed this, using the direct reading will lead to incorrect calculations for intraocular lens choice, for instance. A formula must be used to arrive at a more accurate estimation of the corneal power. To ensure accuracy, the keratometer must be periodically calibrated and properly maintained.

Chapter 3 Lensometry, Transposition, and Geneva Lens Measure K E Y P O I N T S • Focus the lensometer eyepiece before measuring a lens, being careful not to over minus. • Make sure the frames rest evenly on the stage. • Trifocal power is usually half the bifocal power. • If the mires cannot be centered, there is ground-in prism. • Do not scratch a plastic lens when marking the optical center (OC) or measuring with lens clock.

The dilator muscle is radially aligned so that when it contracts, it widens the pupil. It is innervated by the sympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system. The sphincter is the circular muscle at the pupillary margin that constricts the pupil (miosis) when it contracts. It is innervated by the parasympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system. In addition to light, other factors that affect pupil size include accommodation, injury, disease, age, and refractive error. Light regulates pupil function by sending a message to the brain (the afferent pathway), which then signals the nervous system (the efferent pathway) to alter the size of the pupil.
