    We studied 400 eyes which underwent cataract extraction with posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) implantation to compare the predictive accuracy of various IOL power calculation formulae. The new Sanders-Retzlaff-Kraff (SRK) II formula was more accurate than the original SRK and Binkhorst II formulae. Modification of the A constants used in the SRK II formula to make it 'surgeon specific' improved its performance further; 80% of the eyes had less than 1 dioptre error and only one eye (0.3%) had an error of more than 3 dioptres.
