Objective To compare the use of low and high fluidic settings on the safety of phacoemulsification cataract surgery. Materials and Methods Our prospective study included 140 cases of senile cataract which were randomized into two groups of low (Group A) and high (Group B) fluidic settings for phacoemulsification, having 70 cases in each group. Postoperative best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), endothelial cell loss (ECL) and change in central corneal thickness (CCT) were compared between the two groups. Results There was no statistically significant difference in ECL, BCVA and change in CCT between the two groups at day 7, day 30 and day 90 postoperatively. Conclusion The results suggest that both low and high fluidic settings are equally safe to use during phacoemulsification. .
