1. Evaluation of anterior-segment inflammation and retinal thickness change following cataract surgery

    Purpose: To investigate the physiological retinal response to uneventful cataract surgery using conventional time-domain (TD-OCT) and current spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in combination with an assessment of the anterior chamber inflammatory reaction by laser flare/cell meter (LCFM).Methods: Thirty-four patients scheduled for cataract surgery were included in this prospective pilot study. Retinal parameters were examined according to a standardized examination procedure using TD-OCT (Stratus; Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, California, USA) and SD-OCT (Cirrus; Carl Zeiss Meditec) devices. The inflammatory reaction of the anterior chamber was measured by LFCM (Kowa FC-1000, Kowa Co. Ltd, Tokyo, Japan). Examinations were carried ...
