    Pseudophakic Macular Edema in Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma: a Prospective Study Using Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose To determine the incidence of and risk factors for pseudophakic macular edema (PME) after uncomplicated cataract surgery in primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Design Cohort study Methods Macular retinal thickness was evaluated using SD-OCT at 1-week before surgery and at 1-, 3-, 6-, and 12-months postoperatively, in 70 POAG and 68 control eyes. Forty-three healthy subjects without impaired vision or cystoid PME were recruited separately as pilot samples to define significant PME. Significant PME was defined as an increase in the average thickness exceeding the mean+three standard deviations of the increase shown in ...
