1. Foveal thickness after phacoemulsification in patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome, pseudoexfoliation glaucoma, or primary open-angle glaucoma

    Purpose: To use optical coherence tomography (OCT) to assess changes in foveal thickness after uneventful phacoemulsification in eyes with pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PXF), pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (PXG), or primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG).Setting: Department of Ophthalmology, University of Kocaeli, Kocaeli, Turkey.Methods: This prospective observational case series comprised 87 eyes (87 patients) that had phacoemulsification. Thirty-three were control eyes with cataract and no ocular disease, 15 eyes had POAG, 22 eyes had PXF, and 17 eyes had PXG. Foveal thickness was measured by OCT preoperatively and 1, 2, 4, and 8 weeks postoperatively. Intraocular pressure was recorded preoperatively and 8 weeks postoperatively ...
