    Evaluation of macular thickness after uncomplicated cataract surgery using optical coherence tomography

    Purpose: To evaluate central macular thickness (CMT) after cataract surgery in selected groups of patients. Methods: The study comprised 4 groups—patients with epiretinal membrane, patients with high myopia, patients with diabetes without retinopathy, and healthy subjects—who underwent phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation. Central macular thickness was measured with spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) using the 3D macular cube scan. The OCT evaluation was performed preoperatively and 1, 6, 15, 30, 60, 90, and 360 days after surgery. Visual acuity was measured preoperatively and after 6 and 360 days after surgery. Results: The study included 258 patients, 164 ...
