Abstract

Aim: This study is designed to evaluate post-operative astigmatism induced by 3.2 mm temporal clear corneal incision phacoemulsification and compare it with astigmatism induced by temporal manual small incision cataract surgery (SICS).
Materials and Methods: This retrospective study was conducted at a medical college and hospital, Gurgaon during academic session 2015 – 2016. The patients were divided into two groups. The patients allotted in group A were operated by temporal manual SICS technique to remove their cataract, whereas group B had temporal clear corneal phacoemulsification to remove their cataract. Best corrected vision and keratometeric values were recorded in Preoperative and postoperative period. Post-operative astigmatism was analysed by using SIA software (SIA calculator version 2.1 by Dr Saurabh Sawhney and Dr Ashima Aggarwal).
Results: Mean post-operative astigmatism in group A was 1.08 (±0.55) D and in group B was 0.78 (±0.52) D after 1 month of surgery. At 1 month of follow up, post-operative astigmatism was comparable between the groups.
Conclusion: Clinical outcomes of both surgeries were similar, as there was no significant statistical difference in the SIA at one month of follow up.
