Abstract:   (13350 Views)
Background and purpose: Çataract is one of the most common ophthalmic diseases. This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of cataract surgery on intraocular pressure (ÏÔP) of patients referred to Booali Hospital, Sari.
Materials and methods: Âmong the patients with cataract disease, 60 were randomly recruited in the study. Then, 32 patients underwent extracapsular cataract surgery and 28 were operated through Phaco method. Ân ophthalmologist measured the ÏÔP with Goldman tonometer mounted on a slit lamp in five stages, that is, 24 hours and 30 minutes before surgery, and 24 hours, the first week and the first month after surgery.
Results: The mean and standard deviation of ÏÔP in patients undergoing extracapsular cataract surgery in the defined times were: 14.75 ± 2.11, 14.38 ± 1.91, 14.53 ± 1.65, 14.28 ± 2.58 and 14.72 ± 2.82 . Âlso, mean and standard deviation of ÏÔP in patients operated by Phaco method in the same times, were: 4.14 ± 2.30, 14.43 ± 2.63, 14.57 ± 0.77, 14.04 ± 0.73 and 14.25 ± 0.95 . Ïn terms of changes in ÏÔP, no statistically significant differences were observed between the two surgical methods. Âlso, there were no significant differences between before and after surgery ÏÔP in any of the methods.
Çonclusion: Âccording to the results, these two methods act similarly with regard to the changes in ÏÔP.
