Abstract Details

Purpose:

The aim of this study was to evaluate subfoveal choroidal thickness before and after uneventful cataract surgery using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) (RS-3000, Nidek).

Setting:

Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, Medical Academy. Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, Departament of Eye Diseases.

Methods:

The study enrolled 20 patients between 36-85 years (mean 70,84 +/-12,95 [SD] years) who had uneventful phacoemulsification and IOL implantation. Choroidal thickness of opertive and non-operative eye were performed manually using the calipers with SD-OCT. Choroidal thickness was obtained at the subfovea, 1000 µm and 2000 µm nasal to the fovea and 1000 µm, 2000 µm temporal to the fovea, total five different locations. Mesurements were performed at the same time 8-9AM preoperatively, 1 day, 7 days, 1 month and 2 months after surgery.

Results:

No statistically significant changes found in choroidal thickness in five different locations after cataract surgery, when measurements of operative eye before surgery compared to measurements after 1 day, 7 days, 1 month and 2 months. No statistically significant changes found in choroidal thickness in five different locations after surgery, when measurements of operative eye compared to non-operative eye after 1 day, 7 days, 1 month and 2 months after surgery.

Conclusions:

Our study suggests that choroidal changes after cataract surgery are not significant. However study could have a lack of representative sample as well as accuracy of measurements that were taken manually.
