We have read and reviewed the article entitled as “Evaluation of choroidal thickness changes after phacoemulsification surgery” by Bayhan et al1 with great interest. The authors had analyzed the effects of phacoemulsification surgery on choroidal thickness (CT) using optical coherence tomography by postoperative month 1. They had found that there were statistically significant increases in all CT measurements, particularly in subfoveal and nasal areas, and the increase in CT was correlated with postoperative decrease of postoperative intraocular pressure. We express our gratitude to the authors for this valuable study, and we would like to ask the authors some important points.
