Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate the results and complications of phacoemulsification surgery in in eyes with white mature cataract.

Setting:

Turkish Red Crescent Hospital, Ophthalmology Clinics, Konya Turkey

Methods:

63 eyes of 63 patients with white mature cataract who had undergone phacoemulsification and IOL implantation surgery, were evaluated retrospectively. The mean age of the patients was 72.88±9.51 (SD) (56-90). 29 of them (46%) were males and 34 of them (54%) were females.

Results:

The mean preoperative BCVA of the patients was 0.017±0.017 (SD)( light perception -0.05) decimal, Snellen. The mean postoperative BCVA of the patients was 0.71±0.23 (SD) (0.2-1.00) decimal, Snellen (p<0.001). The mean preoperative IOP of the patients was 17.38±4.04(SD) (11-29) mmHg and the mean postoperative IOP was15.77±2.70(SD)(10-20) mmHg (p<0.001). The mean phaco time was 2.58±1.11 (SD) (0.90-4.60) min. Intraoperatively, Trypan blue dye was used in all patients, posterior capsule rupture occured in 4 (6%) patients, vitreous loss occured in one patient (1.5%)..Conversion to ECCE was performed in 3 (4%) patients.

Conclusions:

White mature cataract is a challange for the cataract surgeon, however, by using additional dyes and appropriate techniques, the rate of complications may be reduced.
