Abstract :

Aim: To determine the role of AS–OCT to detect posterior capsular dehiscent preoperative. Design: Prospective hospital based observational study. Material and Method: Patient collection in Government college Kannauj March 2018 to Feuary 2019 .According to Helnsinki’s declaration preoperative assessment and AS–OCT is also performed . Phacoemusification with PCIOL and follow up was done upto 6 week. Result: AS–OCT done for 26 eye out of which in 4 (15.3%) eyes posterior capsule was found dehiscent rest of all eyes posterior capsule was intact. Examination under microscope surgeon found posterior capsular dehiscent only in 3(11.5%).Sensivity of AS–OCT is 75% and specificity is 95.45%. Stastical analysis was done for AS–OCT by CHI SQUARE test (P=.0004). Conclusion: Significant role of detecting AS–OCT in posterior capsular dehiscent.
