We studied 564 patients who underwent cataract surgery, using preoperative and postoperative endothelial cell photographs and corneal thickness measurements. No statistically significant difference was noted in endothelial cell loss between patients with intracapsular cataract extraction (12.6%) and those undergoing posterior chamber phacoemulsification (15.2%). Both procedures had significantly less cell loss than with anterior chamber phacoemulsification (27.3%). Intraocular lens implantation… CONTINUE READING
