Purpose: The purpose of this study is carried out to analyze the change in intraocular pressure after cataract surgery. Materials and Methods: We conducted a retrospective interventional case series of 218 patients, who underwent phacoemulsification surgery. Pre-operative and post-operative, intraocular pressure, and pachymetry were recorded. The change in intraocular pressure was recorded in both operated and fellow eyes and was compared using the statistical methods. Results: There was a mean reduction of 0.93 mm Hg in intraocular pressure in operated eye, which was statistically significant (P value 0.004). The change in fellow eye was 0.31 mm Hg, which was statistically insignificant (P value 0.16). Conclusion: This study proves the significant reduction in intraocular pressure after cataract surgery.
