Abstract

PURPOSE: To evaluate intraocular pressure (IOP) change after cataract surgery in non-glaucomatous eyes with narrow and open angles (OAs) and its relation to novel lens parameters measured by anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT). SETTING: University affiliated hospital, Farabi Eye Hospital, Tehran, Iran. DESIGN: Prospective interventional case series. METHODS: In this prospective study, 85 non-glaucomatous eyes underwent phacoemulsification and lens implantation. Thirty-nine eyes had OAs and 46 eyes had narrow angles (NAs). IOP and biometric parameters were measured by AS-OCT preoperatively and 3 months after surgery. Change in IOP and its relation to biometric parameters, i..
