    Macular thickness changes evaluated with spectral domain optical coherence tomography after uncomplicated phacoemulsification

    Purpose To determine macular thickness changes after uncomplicated cataract surgery using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods This was a prospective non-randomized, clinical study. Data were analysed for 40 healthy patients undergoing uneventful phacoemulsification. OCT measurements were performed before surgery and postoperatively at day 1, week 1 and 2, and month 1, 2, 3, and 6. The retinal map was divided into central point thickness (CPT), central 1-mm subfield (CSF), and two peripheral ring areas with diameters of 3 and 6   mm. Fellow eyes were used as controls. Retinal thickness change between the operated and fellow eyes were compared ...
