Abstract Details



Purpose:

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

Setting:

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.

Methods:

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

Results:

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)

Conclusions:

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