An almost exact eigenvalue equation for optical fibers with graded-index profile is derived mathematically based on a combination of the modified Airy functions and the Wentzel, Kramers, Brillouin (WKB) trial solution. By applying proper boundary conditions, a phase shift correction term δ is found out which improves the inherent error problems of the conventional WKB method. It is shown through computer simulations that results of the derived eigenvalue equation are in excellent agreement with those of the finite-element method
