Abstract Details


Study of macular thickness in diabetic patients with Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) after cataract surgery and implantation of intraocular lens in the posterior chamber


General Hospital Of Eleusina Thriasio, Gennimata Av, Athens, Greece. Our study refers to thirty (30) patients middle aged +/- 70 years of age who underwent cataract surgery. Fifteen (15) of them were diabetic and the other half were healthy, with the latter being the target group of the trial.


Complete ophthalmological examination and OCT were performed before and after cataract surgery.


Preoperatively the mean value of macular thickness was 208 +/- in the target group and 219+/- in diabetic patients. One month postoperatively the value of the macular thickness was 218(+/- 25.3?m) in the healthy group and 257 (+/- 78.5?m) in the diabetic one. Three months postoperatively the macular thickness in healthy group was 209 (+/- 17.8?m) and in the diabetic group 231(+/- 46.1m)


Diabetes Mellitus is a powerful risk factor for the increase of macular thickness after cataract surgery.
