Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate changes in tear film function, and ocular surface stability in patients after cataract surgery.

Setting:

Methods : This hospital-based prospective randomized trial included 48 eyes from 30 patients who underwent phacoemulsification. Slit-lamp examination, Schirmer test, and measurement of tear film breakup time were performed for all patients 1 day before and 1 day, 1 month, and 3 months after surgery.

Methods:

This hospital-based prospective randomized trial included 48 eyes from 30 patients who underwent phacoemulsification. Slit-lamp examination, Schirmer test, and measurement of tear film breakup time were performed for all patients 1 day before and 1 day, 1 month, and 3 months after surgery.

Results:

The mean postoperative Schirmer test results were no different from preoperative values. On the other hand, breakup time results had decreased significantly at 1 day postoperatively (P =0.01) but had returned to almost the preoperative level 1 month postoperatively.

Conclusions:

Ocular surface damage during cataract surgery seems to be one of the pathogenic factors that cause ocular discomfort and dry eye syndrome after cataract surgery
