Abstract
Purpose: Phacoemulsification is the most common treatment method for cataract surgery. Cataract is responsible for 48% of worldwide blindness. The aim of this study was to evaluate the affect of Phacoemulsification cataract surgery in choroid thickness (CT).
Materials and Methods: A single-center, prospective study was conducted at the Selcuk University Hospital, Konya. Fifty-four eyes and 54 adult patients who were scheduled for phacoemulsification cataract surgery were consecutively enrolled. Patients had not undergone previous ocular surgery and had no other ocular abnormality and systemic diseases. CT was measured preoperatively and postoperatively at first day, 10 day, and 30 day via spectral domain optical cohorence tomography (Spectralis®, Heidelberg engineering, Heidelberg, Germany). Varyans analysis (repead measured ANOVA) was used in repeated measures. Bonferroni confidence intervals applied for binary comparisons. Two samples Hoteling test was used comparing age, gender parameters with mean CT changes. P<0.05 were retained as significant.
Results: The study included 54 patients. Preoperatively, CT was 237.4±21.6 μm and postoperative 1 day, 10 day and 30 day 240.5±24.8, 241.2±25.7, and 244.2±21.4 μm , respectively. Postoperative values increased significantly compared preopeative values(p=0.001). There were no significant differences between postoperative measurements at postoperative day 1 and postoperative day 10 and day 30.
Conclusions: After uncomplicated phacoemulsifcation cataract surgery, CT inreased significantly and this did not return to baseline during follow-up. Future studies should be performed to eveluate long term affects of cataract surgery in CT.

Key words: Phacoemulsification, choroidal thickness, optic coherence tomography, intra-ocular pressure
