PURPOSE To examine whether long-term corneal astigmatic change with age after cataract surgery depends on patient age at the time of surgery, and to evaluate whether this change is different from that in eyes that did not undergo surgery. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. METHODS A total of 437 eyes that underwent phacoemulsification with a 4.1-mm horizontal corneoscleral incision more than 11 years ago and 600 control eyes without surgery were divided into 4 age groups: (1) 60 years or… CONTINUE READING
