    Triphasic polymeric corneal coating gel versus balanced salt solution irrigation during cataract surgery: a postoperative anterior segment optical coherence tomography analysis and confocal microscopy evaluation

    Purpose To investigate the safety and efficacy of the intra-operative use of a triphasic polymeric gel as corneal coating during cataract surgery and its effect on postoperative ocular comfort Setting Eye Clinic, University of Florence, Italy Design Longitudinal observational retrospective study Methods Data of 25 patients who received an application of polysaccharide blend on corneal surface (EyeDro – Alchimia s.r.l., hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, xanthan gum and carrageenan) and of 27 eyes who received balanced salt solution (BSS) during phacoemulsification surgery were analyzed. Central Corneal Thickness (CCT) and Epithelial Thickness (ET) were examined using Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography (AS-OCT) and ...
