Abstract

Objective. Determination of the effects of hormonal replacement therapy (HRT) on various ocular parameters and symptoms in postmenopausal women. Designe. Prospective study. Setting. Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University 'Federico II' of Naples. Patients. 14 healthy women treated orally with equine conjugated estrogen in continuous (0.625 mg/daily) and acetate-medroxyprogesteron (10 mg/daily) from 17th to 28th day for three months. Measures. Ocular symptomatology, intraocular pressure (IOP), lacrimal secretion, reflected and basal and corneal thickness. Results. After 3 months of HRT the IOP was reduced of 10.8% (p <0.005), the lacrimal secretion, reflected and basal, increased of 19% and 48%, respectively and the corneal thickness increased of 16.6%. Conclusion. The HRT has a positive effect on ocular physiology.
