A Comparative Study of Visual Acuity and Surgically Induced Astigmatism After Phacoemulsification by Temporal Clear Corneal and Superior Clear Corneal Incision.

Author: AAKANKSHA BELE, PRAVEEN TIDAKE, P. S. PATIL
Abstract: Background: The primary goal of cataract extraction surgery is immediate visual rehabilitation and the best uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) post operatively. Aim: To compare the surgically induced astigmatism after phacoemulsification surgery with superior clear corneal incision and temporal clear corneal incision. Materials and Methods: This will be a hospital based interventional prospective comparative randomized study comprising of 150 eyes from 150 patients undergoing phacoemulsification with 2 different types of corneal incision that were implanted with a rigid PCIOL through a 5.2 mm incision. The outcome measures were surgically induced astigmatism (SIA) and uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) 2 and 6 weeks, post-operatively. Results: In this study we expect to have better visual outcome and reduce incidence of surgically induced astigmatism in Temporal Clear Corneal than in Superior Clear Corneal. Conclusion: Temporal Clear Corneal incision appears to have better visual outcome and reduced incidence of SIA.
Keyword: surgically induced astigmatism, temporal clear corneal incision, superior clear corneal incision.
