Abstract

Aim: We report retrospectively on the change of the axial length of three high myopia patients who accept bilateral phacoemulsifi cation, but delayed their second eye operation more than 25 months.
Methods: All the three observed patients delayed their second eye operation over 25month. The follow up time was more than 24 months after the second eye surgery. The measurements such as axial length and lens opacity were assessed.
Results: The second eye operation was delayed 25, 33 and 48 months. The clinical observation showed the exacerbation of the cataract as the time going on. The axial length of delayed surgery eye was changed from 26.09, 26.28, 26.21 mm to 27.05, 26.85, 26.72 mm, but the fellow eyes was changed from 25.81, 31.48, 26.05 mm to 25.76, 31.63, 26.16 mm. The axial length was almost unchanged after the next follow up.
Conclusion: Cataract may affect the axial length of high myopes in the adults. Physicians should be aware of the possible development of axial length in cataract patients with myopia.
