HORMIGO PUERTAS, Iraisi F et al. Refractive surprise due to incorrect labelling. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2010, vol.23, suppl.2, pp.869-876. ISSN 0864-2176.

The cataract surgery has evolved in the last few years. The development of advanced formulas for the calculation of the intraocular lens and the ever increasingly accurate measuring tools worldwide allow reaching good postoperative refractive results for the patient that, as a rule, is emetropia. However, even with the best measuring techniques and the best trained surgeons, we are not exempted from unwanted postsurgical result for the patient and the surgeon as well, which is known as refractive surprise. This paper presented the case of a patient operated on from cataract using phacoemulsification with implantation and the occurrence of refractive surprise the causes of which were ruled out. Finally, wrong lens labeling was shown, which is an infrequent event that might occur.

Palabras clave : Cataract; intraocular lens; refractive surprise.
