Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate the incidence of retinal detachment (RD) after cataract surgery performed by phacoemulsification in very highly myopic eyes. Design: Retrospective, paired-eye, case-control trial. Participants and Intervention: We assessed the development of RD in 930 eyes from 930 subjects (mean age = 62.5 ± 8.5 years) affected by very high myopia (between -15 and -30 diopters) undergoing cataract surgery after uncomplicated phacoemulsification (cataract - subjected [CS] eyes). Fellow eyes served as controls. Follow-up was 36 months. Main Outcome Measure: Detachment of the retina. Results: Retinal detachment was observed in 8.0% of CS eyes compared with 1.2% of control eyes (P
