Abstract

Purpose : To assess the incidence of cystoid macular oedema (CMO) following lensectomy, anterior vitrectomy (limbal), and primary posterior capsulorhexis after surgery for congenital and developmental cataract.

Methods : A retrospective study was carried out on 15 children (18 eyes), who had cataract extraction, posterior capsulorhexis, anterior vitrectomy, and in-the-bag IOL implantation. The presence of CME was evaluated 1 week and 4 to 6 weeks after surgery using Optical Coherence Topography. (Spectralis, Heidelberg Engeneering)

Results : Optical coherence topography was performed 1 week after surgery in all eyes and after 1 month in 15 eyes (83.3%). No eye demonstrated the presence of CME on OCT.

Conclusions : Cystoid macular edema did not occur in the early period after peadiatric cataract surgery using current surgical techniques. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-contact medical imaging technology and is a useful tool for detecting CME in children after cataract surgery.
