Abstract

The incidence of subclinical macular edema after uneventful cataract surgery has become an issue of safety for this frequent operation. It was reported that the incidence of leakage sites was most prominent after 6 weeks. There are studies which show increased OCT–measured foveal thickness following cataract surgery due to subclinical changes of the macular blood retinal barrier (BRB) in the postoperative period.
Spectral domain OCT has been used to measure macular thickness in the present study which was demonstrated to be superior to time domain OCT in the investigation of retinal response to cataract surgery. The present study is a prospective interventional study done to evaluate the incidence.

Keywords: IRVIN-GASS syndrome, Phacoemulsification, Smallincision cataract surgery.
