Abstract

Increased intraocular pressure in the immediate postoperative period commonly occurs after cataract extraction. We compared a series of patients operated on through a limbal section to a series operated on through a corneal section. The incidence of increased IOP was significantly lower in the corneal section group. This supports the theory that trabecular damage is a major factor in causing early increased IOP after cataract extraction.
