Objective: To analyze and describe the ocular biometrics values of an adult population in the northwest region of Mexico. Material and method: Prospective, descriptive and observational, not aleatory study of 304 adult persons starting 18 years old that request ophthalmologic consultation for ocular biometric test to get intraocular lense calculation previous to cataract surgery in the Hospital General de Culiacan. The ocular biometric test includes ocular axial length, anterior chamber depth, crystalline lens thickness, vitreous chamber depth, corneal curvature and intraocular lens expected power measured in dioptries. The following variables were defined: age, sex and analyzed eye. Results: Records of 304 eyes were obtained, the mean axial length, anterior chamber depth, crystalline lens thickness, vitreous chamber depth and corneal curvature were 23.09 mm, 3.14 mm, 3.65 mm, 16.28 mm and 43.82 dioptries respectively. The mean intraocular lens expected power was 22.04 dioptries. The age range was between 29 and 98 years old with a mid age of 68 years old. The sex distribution was 53.94% female and 46.05% male. 51.31% of the evaluated eyes were right and 48.68% were left.
