Abstract

We investigated morphological features of anterior capsule of the crystal lens of patients with pseudoexfoliative syndrome after phacoemulsification. The results indicate that the anterior lens capsule in patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome has a more dense structure, the capsule thickness is 21.3 ± 0.7 μm, which is an average of 55% more than in control patients, and also has more layers epithelial cells than patients without this syndrome. The use of the anterior capsule of the lens when performing antiglaucoma surgery - a modified tunnel trabeculopuncture improves the hypotensive effect of the operation due to the specified features of the morphology of the anterior capsule of the lens.

Keywords: pseudoexfoliation syndrome, glaucoma, anterior lens capsule, modified tunnel trabeculopuncture
