    Preoperative spectral-domain optical coherence tomography in patients having cataract surgery

    Purpose To evaluate the role and cost-effectiveness of preoperative spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in patients having cataract surgery. Setting Fondation Opthalmologique Adolphe de Rothschild, Paris, France. Design Retrospective case series. Methods All patients who had cataract surgery had macular and retinal nerve fiber layer SD-OCT preoperatively. A complete ophthalmologic examination was performed, including corrected near (CNVA) and corrected distance visual acuities, intraocular pressure (IOP), and a fundus examination. Results The study comprised 245 patients (401 eyes) with a mean age of 73.5 years ± 9.81 and a mean IOP of 15.6 ± 3.04 mm Hg. Of 107 ...
