Ultralong-scan-depth OCT useful in identifying potential causes of PCO in highly myopic eyes

Use of ultralong-scan-depth optical coherence tomography revealed weak posterior capsular adhesion and capsular bending in highly myopic eyes, which may increase the likelihood of posterior capsular opacification after cataract surgery, according to a study.The prospective, observational study included 40 eyes of 40 cataract patients, of which 20 eyes were highly myopic and 20 eyes were emmetropic. All eyes underwent examination using a custom-built ultralong-scan-depth OCT device at 4 hours and at 7, 14 and 28 days following phacoemusification.
