Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate the results of targeting 1:00 diopter myopia for both eyes in cataract patents

Setting:

National Institute of Ophthalmology and Hospital Dhaka Bangladesh

Methods:

This cross sectional interventional study was from 2013 to 2014. 50 cases (100 eyes) were selected as per inclusion criteria. Following pre-operative assessment, Phacoimulsification with PCIOL (ALCON ACRYSOF IQ) implantation was done under local anaesthesia by temporal incision. Biometry was done by immersion method. Topical antiobiotic and steroids were prescribed post-operatively. Surgery in each eye was deferred by at least 01 month. All the surgeries were performed by a single surgeon. All the surgeries were uneventful. Followup was done at POD 1, 15 and 30. The visual acuity at near and distance was noted.

Results:

Preoperatively the mean BCVA LogMAR was 0.84 �Â�±0.139. At POD 30, the unaided mean was 0.186�Â�±0.040.p value is less than 0.05. 82% had a binocular LogMAR unaided distant visual acuity of 0.20, 16% had 0.1 and 2% had a binocular LogMAR unaided distant visual acuity of 0.30. and in case of near vision, 96% had N6 binocularly and the rest had N8 unaided. 47 (94%) patients out of 50 did not want optical correction for distant or near. 01 (02%) patient wanted optical correction for distant and near vision and 02 (04%) wanted optical correction for near.

Conclusions:

Targeting 1 diopter myopia for both eyes is an easy, acceptable and affordable approach to address post-operative optical status in carefully selected patients.
