ABSTRACT
AIM: To evaluate the therapeutic effect of phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation on phacolytic glaucoma.METHODS: A survey of the operative complications, visual activity and intraocular pressure was taken, after the cases received the operation of phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation for phacolytic glaucoma. RESULTS: The complications of the surgery were slight and easy to control. The intraocular pressure of 17 cases was between 41.7-62.4mmHg before the surgery, and it was 10.7-18.2mmHg after the surgery. Furthermore, the visual activity was light perception(LP)in pre-operation while it was ≥0.5 postoperatively.CONCLUSION: Phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation is a safe and effect way for phacolytic glaucoma.
