Abstract Details


To evaluate the changes in the ocular biometric parameters after hemodialysis (HD) in patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD).


Diskapi Yildirim Beyazit Training abd Research Hospital, Ankara, Turkey. Evaluation of a diagnostic device.


In this cross-sectional study, forty eyes of 40 patients undergoing HD were included. The keratometry (K) readings, white to white (WTW), central corneal thickness (CCT), anterior chamber depth (ACD), pupil diameter, Lens thickness (LT) and axial length (AL) measurement performed with Lenstar LS 900, (Haag Streit AG, Koeniz, Switzerland) before and after hemodialysis. The IOP was measured by using a non-contact Tonopachy NT-530P (Nidek Co., LTD, Tokyo, Japan) tonometer. The main outcome was the change in the biometry parameters after HD.


The mean difference in axial length measurement after HD was -0.041±0.022 mm (p < 0.001). The mean pupil diameter was significantly different before and after HD (respectively: 4.28±0.81 mm, 4.44±0.79 mm; p= 0,041). There is not significant change in the K readings, WTW, CCT, ACD, LT, and IOP after HD.


Axial length and pupil diameter increases after HD. HD have not a significant effect on the other biometric parameters and IOP.
