The purpose of this study was to investigate the change in axial length (AL) after cataract surgery measured by swept source optical coherence tomography (IOLMaster 700), and explore ways to eliminate this AL measurement error in pseudophakic eyes.
Patients with cataract who underwent unilateral phacoemulsification with four types of intraocular lens (IOLs) implantation (Asphina 509M, Tecnis PCB00, enVista MX60, and Acrysof SN60WF) were enrolled. Bilateral AL measurements were performed before and 1 month after cataract surgery utilizing IOLMaster 700. The postoperative AL of the operated eye was evaluated using three different modes (phakic, aphakic, and pseudophakic), and the fellow eye was measured by phakic mode. Associations among the AL change and cataract grade, lens thickness, preoperative AL, or refractive index of IOL were investigated using stepwise multivariate linear regression.
A total of 305 patients with cataract with mean age of 65.97 ± 13.39 years were recruited. The mean postoperative AL was 0.10 mm and 0.21 mm shorter than the pre-operative AL utilizing pseudophakic and phakic modes, respectively (P < 0.001). No significant difference was observed between pre-operative and postoperative AL using aphakic mode (P = 0.264). There were no significant associations among AL change in pseudophakic eye and cataract grade, lens thickness, pre-operative AL, or refractive index of IOL (P > 0.05).
A correction factor of 0.10 mm is suggested to eliminate AL measurement error of IOLMaster 700 in pseudophakic eyes before further improvement of AL measurement accuracy.
Our study may help to eliminate the AL measurement error of IOLMaster 700 in pseudophakic eyes.
