AIM:

To evaluate ocular parameters changes after age-related cataract phacoemulsification surgery using Keratograph 5M combined with conjunctival impression cytology.<p>

METHODS:

This prospective study included 39 eyes(39 patients)from December 2016 to December 2017, who underwent cataract phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation in Fujian Provincial Hospital. OSDI questionnaire, tear meniscus height, tear break-up time, conjunctival hyperemia and impression cytology were performed preoperatively at 1d, 1wk, 1mo and 2mo after surgery.<p>

RESULTS:

GCD and OSDI were worsen at 1d, 1wk, 1mo, 2mo, postoperatively(<i>P</i><0.05). The first-time tear break-up time was significantly shorter at 1wk(6.91±4.52, 6.12±3.55, 5.18±3.37, 6.28±4.70, 5.96±3.17s, <i>P</i><0.05). The average tear break-up time was significantly shorter at 1wk(10.21±5.20, 8.89±4.47, 6.87±3.68, 7.35±3.52, 9.00±4.23s, <i>P</i><0.05).<p>

CONCLUSION:

phacoemulsification will influence ocular surface parameters. The tear instability and conjunctival cell damage began at 1d postoperatively, and aggravated at 1wk postoperatively. It still couldn't return to preoperative level even at 2mo postoperatively.
