Abstract Details

Purpose:

Analysis of differences in measurement data obtained when using Icare PRO tonometer and conventional pneumotonometry on patients after cataract phacoemulsification surgery in the early postoperative period with cornea edema.

Setting:

LLC “Dr. Kurenkov Clinic”, Moscow, Russia

Methods:

In the early postoperative period, IOP control is necessary for patients after phacoemulsification in order to timely prescribe antyhypertensive medication. A false increase in intraocular pressure is possible which is related to an error in measurement of pressure using a conventional pneumotonometer in case of edematic cornea. Two groups of patients were formed after phacoemulsification of immature and mature cataract (without concomitant eye pathology): patients with edema in cornea optical zone or with total edema (103 eyes) in the first group, and patients without edema or with edema in accessible zone (128 eyes) in the second group.

Results:

A significant difference was revealed between IOP measurements using Icare PRO and pneumotonometer on patients from the first group. IOP turned out to be higher by 8 mmHg on average when measuring using conventional pneumotonometry. In the second group a significant difference was not obtained.

Conclusions:

In case of increased IOP revealed by a conventional pneutonometry on patients after cataract phacoemulsification with cornea edema, one should not limit oneself to data obtained. Measurement of intraocular pressure using Icare PRO method gives a smaller error in IOP measurement which may have an influence on postoperative regimen and exclude an unreasonable prescription of antihypertensive drops.
