Abstract Details


To compare the short-term changes in retina and choroidal tissue after femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) and standard phacoemulsification (PE) surgery.


Kaskaloglu Eye Hospital, Izmir, Turkey


25 eyes undergoing FLACS and 27 eyes undergoing PE surgery were included in this retrospective study. Central retinal thickness (CRT) and choroidal thickness (CT) were measured pre- and post-operatively (at day one, one week and one month) with spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) in all patients and were compared. For group comparisons, chi-square test and independent t- test were used. Post-operative values were compared to the baseline using a paired t-test. The magnitude of the change from baseline to the peak was analyzed by multiple regression models in an attempt to explain possible influencing variables.


Pre- and post-operative CRT measurements were similar in both groups. The mean subfoveal CT at day one, one week and one month were significantly higher than baseline CT measurements in the PE group.


FLACS might have an advantage in regard to post-operative choroidal changes.
