Long-term Postoperative Outcomes After Bilateral Congenital Cataract Surgery in Eyes With Microphthalmos
Cataract surgery in infantile eyes, which are microphthalmic, can be even more demanding.
In addition, the frequent presence of other ocular and systemic anomalies such as nystagmus, glaucoma, amblyopia, and higher rate of postoperative complications may limit the success of cataract surgery.
In our previous study, the investigators examined the intraoperative performance and postoperative outcomes of bilateral cataract surgery in microphthalmic eyes of patients before their first birthday. At 1 year, the postoperative results showed that good visual outcomes could be obtained in microphthalmic eyes.
Since only a few studies have reported outcomes, and that too only short term of cataract surgery on microphthalmic eyes, in this prospective observational study we evaluated the long-term impact of bilateral cataract surgery on eyes with microphthalmos. The investigators examined the outcomes, complication rates, influence of age at surgery on pattern of axial growth and central corneal thickness and visual and orthoptic assessment in these eyes.
