    Pseudophakic cystoid macular edema and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography–detectable central macular thickness changes with perioperative prostaglandin analogs

    Purpose To define the incidence of cystoid macular edema (CME) and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography–detectable (SD-OCT) subclinical changes in central retinal thickness in patients using prostaglandin analog (PGA) eyedrops after phacoemulsification. Setting Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, Manchester, United Kingdom. Design Prospective case series. Methods A consecutive analysis of the incidence of postoperative CME after phacoemulsification by a single surgeon was performed in eyes of patients using PGA eyedrops between March 2010 and January 2014. The presence of CME was determined using SD-OCT (Cirrus) 3 weeks and 6 weeks postoperatively. Exclusion criteria included preexisting pathology known to predispose to CME ...
