  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We evaluated the change of the cornea before and after cataract surgery in 27 eyes. Extracap-sular cataract extraction was performed in 14 eyes through a 14mm corneal incision. Phacoemulsification -aspiration was performed in 13 eyes through a 7 mm wound. In the former group, the corneal curvature became symmetrically steeper along the vertical meridian on day 7 to persist until 3 months after surgery. In the latter group, the corneal curvature became steeper along the vertical meridian and closer to the site of incision on day 7 of surgery. The corneal curvature returned to the presurgical level 3 months after surgery.
