Purpose: To evaluate anterior chamber depth (ACD) and Intraocular pressure (IOP) alternation after phacoemulsification. Patients and Methods : A quasi-experimental study with one group pre and post design were analysed. We analysed 41 eye who underwent cataract phacoemulsification surgery at Medan Baru Eye Hospital. The ACD and IOP were assessed before and after surgery on 1st, 3rd 14th of 41 eyes post phacoemulsification. ACD was measured with IOL Master 500 Karl Zeiss® was measured with Non-Contact Tonometry Shin-Nippon®. Results : A total of 41 eyes, with characterized by age >60 year (78,3%), female (52,2%), left eyes(52,2%). The mean ACD had increased significantly at D0-D+1,D0-D+3, D0-D+14 and the mean IOP had decreased significantly at D0-D+3, D0-D+14, D+1-D+3, D+1-D+14 (p<0,05). Conclusion : There was a significant increase in ACD and decrease in IOP after phacoemulsification.
