Abstract Details


Cataract surgery is the most frequently performed surgery in ophthalmology. We investigated the influence of different factors in the final surgical outcome.


Hōpital Simone Veil, Eaubonne, France


Prospective consecutive study of 450 eyes of patients that underwent cataract surgery. The studied parameters included: age, sex, weight, height,medical history, origine, type of anesthesia, patient's anxiety during surgery, keratometry, axial length, time of ultrasounds, peroperative complications, time of surgery.


Age averaged 75.6 years old (44, 100), mean preoperative spherical equivalent was -0.04 (-10, 7,5), mean keratometry was 43.87 (39.5, 49) mean axial length was 23.25 mm (20.91, 29.78), mean peroperative time was 17.2 minutes (5, 50). A heavy medical history, anxiety, small axial length, higher peroperative ultrasounds and extended surgical time were important factors responsible for peroperative complications.


The surgeon needs to take into account all these factors in order to inform the patient about the higher post-operative complication risk and in order to best choose the type of anesthesia to be used. Cataract surgery needs to be personalised. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
