Abstract Details


To evaluate the advantages of bimanual microincision cataract surgery (1-1.2 mm) to 1.8 c.mics


Ophtalmologic DaySurgery Unit , Florenzo Jaia Hospital -Conversano, Bari, Italy


20 eyes of 20 patients , 10 woman and 10 men. The mean age was 68 years .The surgical platform were Stellaris(B&L), the operator were the same and by comprovated experience . Preoperative visual acuity (BCVA ) ranged from 1/10 to 5/10. Mean visual acuity was 3/10. Mean preoperative astigmatism of 0.7. Preoperatively, nuclear density was estimated according LOCS III classification. 10 eyes had 2 to 3 nuclear density, and 10 eyes had 3 to 5 nuclear density . Preoperatively endothelial cell count mean of 2200cells/mmâ‚‚ (range:1800-2400).10 eyes underwent 1.2 b-mics surgery and 10 eyes underwent 1.8 c-mics .


no intraoperative complication were observed. All 20 eyes maintained corneal transparency with no signs of thermal damage . Mean visual acuity was 0.98 and the mean induced astigmatism was 0.2 diopters. B-mics 1.2 induced corneal endothelial cell loss inferior to c-mics 1.8, and an earlier final visual recovery .


Surgery 1.2 microincision cataract surgery induced corneal endothelial cell loss inferior to b-mics 1.8 and an earlier final visual recovery .
