Short-term fluctuation of lens corneal distance and clinical correlation with phacodonesis

Short-term fluctuation of lens corneal distance and clinical correlation with phacodonesis Background To analyze the role of short-term lens–corneal distance (LCD) fluctuation in quantifying preoperative phacodonesis and predicting intraoperative zonular weakness. Methods Patients were divided into control (lens without clinical phacodonesis) and study (lens with suspicious and clinical phacodonesis) groups for evaluation. Slit-lamp examination followed by IOLMaster (Carl Zeiss) for LCD assessment was performed. Five readings were taken at five time points (0 s, 15 s, 30 s, 45 s & 60 s) continuously over a minute (short term) for the LCD fluctuation calculation. Results A total of 135 eyes (82 controls and 53 study) were assessed. Study group included 32 (60.3%) suspicious and 21 (39.6%) moderate to severe phacodonesis. There was difference between the control and study eyes (p =0.000) in short-term LCD fluctuation. Twenty-one study eyes (39.6%) showed LCD difference > 1 mm, including 11 eyes (52.3%) with > 2 mm.

Abstract

Background To analyze the role of short-term lens–corneal distance (LCD) fluctuation in quantifying preoperative phacodonesis and predicting intraoperative zonular weakness. Methods Patients were divided into control (lens without clinical phacodonesis) and study (lens with suspicious and clinical phacodonesis) groups for evaluation. Slit-lamp examination followed by IOLMaster (Carl Zeiss) for LCD assessment was performed. Five readings were taken at five time points (0 s, 15 s, 30 s, 45 s & 60 s) continuously over a minute (short term) for the LCD fluctuation calculation. Results A total of 135 eyes (82 controls and 53 study) were assessed. Study group included 32 (60.3%) suspicious and 21 (39.6%) moderate to severe phacodonesis. There was difference between the control and study eyes (p =0.000) in short-term LCD fluctuation. Twenty-one study eyes (39.6%) showed LCD difference > 1 mm, including 11 eyes (52.3%) with > 2 mm. There was a difference in LCD with respect to severity of phacodonesis (p = 0.000).
