    Effect of phacoemulsification incision size on incision repair and remodeling: Optical coherence tomography assessment

    Purpose To characterize the effect of incision size on corneal incision repair and remodeling over 3 months after cataract surgery. Setting Department of Ophthalmology, Auckland District Health Board, Auckland, New Zealand. Design Prospective case series. Methods Eyes having routine cataract surgery were randomized to receive 2.20 mm or 2.85 mm uniplanar clear corneal incisions. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography of incision thickness, length, width, gaping, and angle and specular microscopy of endothelial cell density (ECD), polymegathism, and pleomorphism were completed at baseline and 1, 7, 30, and 90 days postoperatively. Results Each incision group comprised 50 eyes (50 ...
