Anterior chamber configuration changes after phacoemulsification and IOL implantation measured by anterior segment optical coherence tomography
Objective: To measure early changes in anterior chamber morphology after phacoemulsification and IOL implantation using anterior segment optical coherence tomography. Materials and Methods: Prospective consecutive interventional study measuring the anterior chamber configuration changes in twenty (20 eyes) after 1 month of phacoemulsification and posterior chamber IOL implantation. Results: Showing significant difference regarding nasal, superior, temporal and inferior angle measured by anterior segment optical coherence tomography before and after phacoemulsification operation with p.value were (0.027_0.009_0.02_0.012) respectively. Conclusion: Quantitative values showed the anterior chamber angle (ACA), measured using AS-OCT, has increased following uneventful phacoemulsification and IOL implantation.
