The effect of phacoemulsification cataract surgery on the measurement of retinal nerve fiber layer thickness using optical coherence tomography.

Abstract

PURPOSE To evaluate whether the measurement of retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness using optical coherence tomography (OCT) changes after cataract surgery. METHODS This prospective, randomized, observational, cross-sectional clinical study included 24 eyes of 24 patients who underwent phacoemusification with implant. All patients had no preexisting… (More)
