Abstract Details



Purpose:

To evaluate changes of accommodative power in phakic eyes after uneventful pars plana vitrectomy in patients <45 years old without presbyopia.

Setting:

Prospective consecutive observational study

Methods:

To evaluate changes of accommodative power in phakic eyes after uneventful pars plana vitrectomy in patients <45 years old without presbyopia.

Results:

Fifteen eyes of 15 patients were included. Average [Mean±SD] patient age was 39.8 ± 4.3 years. None experienced crystalline lens damage during vitrectomy, and none experienced cataract progression in the vitrectomized eye for up to 12 weeks. NPA was significantly lower in the vitrectomized eye than in the opposite eye at 6 weeks (4.8 ± 0.9 diopters (D) vs. 5.6 ± 1.5 D, P < 0.05, Wilcoxon signed ranked test) and 12 weeks (5.5 ± 1.5 D vs. 6.1 ± 2.1 D, P < 0.05, Wilcoxon signed ranked test) after vitrectomy. At 12 weeks, however, anterior chamber depth was similar to that observed preoperatively.

Conclusions:

Uneventful vitrectomy in relatively young patients without presbyopia could reduce accommodative power during the early postoperative period with no cataract progression.
