Ocular Biometric Parameters Associated With Intraocular Pressure Reduction After Cataract Surgery in Normal Eyes – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To evaluate the ocular biometric parameters associated with intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction after phacoemulsification.Design: Prospective, observational case series.Methods: The study included 999 patients who had undergone uncomplicated phacoemulsification. IOP and ocular biometric parameters were checked preoperatively and 3 months postoperatively using anterior segment optical coherence tomography, optical biometry, and ultrasonic biomicroscopy. The relationship between IOP change and the parameters, including preoperative IOP, anterior chamber depth, axial length, angle opening distance at 500 μm, anterior chamber area, corneal thickness, lens thickness, and iris thickness at 750 μm, was evaluated.Results: The mean patient age was 67.1 ± 4.3 years. The average change in IOP (Read more...)
