Abstract Details

Purpose:

To determine the effect of cataract surgery on intraocular pressure (IOP) in eyes with and without pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PXF).

Setting:

Assiut University Hospitals, Faculty of Medicine, Assiut, Egypt

Methods:

prospective observational cross sectional study that included 2 groups of age related cataract patients: group (1) 32 eyes with PXF, group (2)32 eyes without PXF. In each group, planned extracapsular cataract extraction (PECCE) was done in 22 eyes and phacoemulsification was done in 10 eyes. IOP change was measured at one week, one month and three months postoperatively and compared to preoperative values.

Results:

The difference in mean preoperative IOP between PXF group (14.62mmhg) and control group (13.97mmhg) was insignificant (P=0.679). A significant lower postoperative IOP (P<0.001) was detected in all follow-up visits in both groups. IOP decrease was significantly greater in PXF group than control group at one month (P=0.019) and three months postoperatively (p=0.014). IOP decrease was significantly greater after PECCE than after phacoemulsification (P=0.0067 in PXF group, P=0.0347 in control group) at one month postoperatively.

Conclusions:

IOP significantly decreased after cataract surgery in eyes with and without PXF for up to three months postoperatively. This decrease was significantly greater in PXF group than control group at 1st and 3rd month postoperatively. Also, it was significantly greater after PECCE than after phacoemulsification in eyes with and without PXF at 1st month.
