    Thickness in Ganglion Cell-Inner Plexiform Layer on Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography after Cataract Surgery

    Purpose To assess changes in ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GCIPL) thickness after cataract surgery using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods Forty-three eyes of 33 patients, who underwent cataract surgery were imaged with spectral-domain OCT before and after surgery to measure peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and GCIPL thickness, signal strength (SS), quadrant, 12 clock-hour RNFL thickness and sectoral GCIPL thickness. Results The postoperative SS, RNFL and GCIPL thickness were higher than before surgery ( p < 0.05). Multivariate analysis showed that endothelial cell count and preoperative SS were significantly correlated with SS changes in RNFL parameters and preoperative SS ...
