    Effect of cataract surgery on optical coherence tomography measurements and repeatability in patients with noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus

    Purpose: To evaluate the effect of uncomplicated cataract phacoemulsification on macular and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness using two spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) instruments, Cirrus OCT (Zeiss) and Spectralis OCT (Heidelberg), in patients having non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) without retinopathy, and to assess the reliability of the OCT measurements before and after cataract surgery. Methods: The study included 35 eyes of 35 patients having NIDDM without retinopathy (20 men and 15 women, mean age 69.8 years, range 48-80 years) who underwent cataract phacoemulsification. One month before and 1 month after surgery, visual acuity and three repetitions ...
