Abstract Details

Purpose:

To study the effect of topical prednisolone acetate 1 % on intraoperative mydriasis and postoperative pain following cataract surgery.

Setting:

This prospective study was investigated on patients candidated for cataract surgery from March 2015 to June 2015 at Shahid Sadoughi hospital, Yazd, Iran Patients who have mature cataract, pseudoexfoliation syndrome, diabetes and history of alpha -blockers or anti-glaucoma medications were excluded.

Methods:

Patients were divided into case (treated with topical Prednisolone acetate 1 % every 6 hours for one day before surgery) and control (treated with artificial tears every 6 hours for one day before surgery) groups. All patients underwent phacoemulsification by single surgeon. Pupillary diameter measured prior and at the end of surgery. Postoperative pain was assessed using visual analogue scale for pain.

Results:

The study enrolled 20 cases and 20 controls. There was no significant difference between the mean of preoperative mydriasis between two groups. Patients treated with prednisolone acetate 1 % showed significant larger mean of pupillary diameter (7.45 mm) postoperatively than control group (5.70 mm) and significant lower postoperative pain (P<0.001).

Conclusions:

Application of prednisolone acetate 1 % before cataract surgery showed promising results in intraoperative mydriasis maintenance and postoperative pain relief.
