Aim:To study the roles of axial length and anterior chamber depth as risk factors for the development of phacomorphic glaucoma in eyes with mature cataract.
Material and Methods: This is a prospective case-control study done in the year 2023 at Department of Ophthalmology, MLB Medical College, Jhansi. Phacomorphic glaucoma was diagnosed by Intraocular Pressure of more than 21 mmHg, intumescent cataract with signs and symptoms of phacomorphic glaucoma, axial length and anterior chamber depth.All patients examined by slit lamp examination .
Results: The Mean Intra ocular pressure of phacomorphic glaucoma was 49Â±8 mmHg and of mature cataract was 15Â±6 mmHg. Vision was Light perception in phacomorhic glaucoma and Hand movement observed was mature cataract. The mean axial length was 23.08Â±0.32mmHg among phacomorphic glaucoma, shorter than mature cataract, where the mean axial length was 23.71Â±0.78mm.
Conclusion:Patients with shorter axial lengths are at increased risk for phacomorphic glaucoma.
