Abstract

Purpose

To compare intraocular pressure (IOP) immediately after cataract surgery, and surgically induced corneal astigmatism (SIA) and corneal shape changes between eyes with transconjunctival single-plane sclerocorneal incisions (TSSIs) and eyes with clear corneal incisions (CCIs).

Methods

Bilateral eyes of 64 patients undergoing phacoemulsification were randomized to undergo 2.4-mm temporal TSSI or CCI. IOP was measured preoperatively, and in the immediate postoperative periods. SIA was determined using vector analysis, and corneal shape changes and irregular astigmatism were evaluated using a videokeratography preoperatively, and in the early postoperative periods.

Results

Wound hydration was performed in 23 eyes (35.9 %) of the TSSI group and in 60 (93.8 %) of the CCI group (P < 0.0001). Mean IOP was significantly higher in the TSSI group than in the CCI group at 30, 60, and 120 min postoperatively (P ≤ 0.0179). SIA tended to be smaller in the TSSI group than the CCI group, but the difference was not significant. The higher order irregular astigmatism was smaller in the TSSI group than in the CCI group at 2 days (P = 0.0312). The videokeratography revealed a wound-related flattening postoperatively in both groups; this change disappeared within 4 weeks in the TSSI group, whereas it persisted until 12 weeks in the CCI group.

Conclusion

IOP was significantly higher immediately after TSSI than after CCI and required less wound hydration, suggesting better stability with TSSI. Higher order irregular astigmatism and wound-related corneal flattening were smaller after TSSI than after CCI in the early periods, suggesting that fewer corneal shape changes with TSSI.
