Abstract Details


The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of pseudoexfoliation (PEX) on the dry eye induction after cataract surgery.


Department of Ophthalmology at Clinical center Kragujevac, Serbia.


This cross-sectional study consists of total 180 eyes of 90 patients (52 females, 38 males) in total who were directed for cataract surgery form Januray 2015 untill January 2016. All the patients were divided into three groups: pseudoexfoliative syndrome-XFS, pseudoexfoliative glaucoma-XFG and control group. XFS and XFG participants were only those one with PEX bilatreal presentations. Totally 102 eyes in control group and 78 eyes in the other two groups were included in the study; distributed as XFS (51 eyes) and XFG (27 eyes).


The mean Schirmer test results indicated that control group measurement was 13 ± 4 mm, in the XFS group 12 ± 4 mm, and in the XFG group 9 ± 3 mm. The statistically significant difference was recorded among the control group and the XFG group, but without statistically significant difference between the PEX groups, as well as between XFS and control groups. The mean tear break up time test in the control group was 12 ± 2 s, in the XFS group 11 ± 2 s, and in the XFG group 10 ± 3 s. No statistically significant differences were recorded between all three groups.


PEX material can cause decrease in tear film secretion and without disturbing tear film stability.
