Purpose: To assess the impact on intraocular pressure (IOP) after Phacoemulsification (PE) with Posterior Chamber Intraocular Lens (PCIOL) implantation and its relation with ocular biometric parameters.
Materials and Methods: The study was a prospective observational study included 524 eyes with normal IOP (11-21 mmHg) who underwent uneventful Phacoemulsification with PCIOL Implantation surgery for age-related cataract. IOP, Central Corneal Thickness (CCT), Anterior Chamber Depth (ACD), Axial Length (AL) were measured pre-operatively and one month post-operatively by Goldman Applanation Tonometer, Corneal Pachymeter and Optical Coherence Biometer, respectively. The post-operative IOP change and its relation with preoperative biometric parameters were determined.
Results: The mean pre-operative and post-operative IOP was 13.44±1.98 & 11.54±1.66mmHg, respectively, with an average IOP reduction after one month of 1.90±0.61mmHg. The mean pre-operative and post-operative ACD was 3.27±0.24 and 3.66±0.27 mm, respectively, with an average increase of 0.39 ±0.3 mm. Paired t-test showed post-operative IOP reduction was significantly associated with preoperative IOP (p<0>2 0.921. So 92.1% of the preoperative IOP is proportional to post-operative IOP reduction. The graphical representation shows more the pre-operative IOP, more the post-operative IOP reduction.
Conclusion: IOP is significantly reduced, and ACD increased after PE with PCIOL implantation surgery and is associated with post-operative IOP reduction. The post-operative IOP reduction is proportional to pre-operative IOP, and more the preoperative IOP, more the post-operative IOP reduction.
