Multiple Post-Op

Question

If a patient has several post-op measurements done what should be entered into HICSOAP? For example, if a 1-week post-op measurement has been entered and the patient then has a 1-month post-op measurement done, should the 1-week post-op data be deleted and then the 1-month measurement be entered? Or should both be entered?

Answer

The Program uses the most recent post op visit and nothing needs to be deleted. It does not use data less than 14 days because it is not stable, so it does not help determine the Personalized Lens Constant (PLC).
