To present a case of cataract phacoemulsification in the patient with Fuchs Endothelial Corneal Dystrophy


My Clinic, Kiev, Ukraine


A 54-year-old, female with immature cataract, Fuchs Endothelial Corneal Dystrophy, high degree myopia and astigmatism in both eyes.Preoperatively: VOD=0.02 sph -10.50 cyl-2.25 ax 10=0.2 (20/100) VOS=0.03 sph -8.50 cyl-1.25 ax 135=0.3 (20/70)Endoendothelial biomicroscopy left eye before phacoemulsification- dark patches on the endothelium, cell hexagonality is decreased.


Phacoemulsification of cataracts was performed on the left eye,surgical intervention and postoperative treatment was carried out according to the standard procedure.The patient was taking antibiotics and anti-inflammatory eye drops. Endothelial biomicroscopy after phacoemulsification - the dark patches on the endothelium are preserved, cells hexagonality is reduced.


One month later - UCVA OS 0.8 (20/25) The patient has been under observation for more than a year with preserved high visual functions.This case shows that phacoemulsification is a safe and effective procedure with good visual outcomes and high patient satisfaction despite the presence of Fuchs Endothelial Corneal Dystrophy.
