Abstract

Purpose: To determine the association between cataract surgery and blepharoptosis. Methods: The frequency of the diagnosis of blepharoptosis (ICD Code 374.3) and the frequency of ptosis surgery (CPT Code 67904) were compared in two groups of Medicare patients. Group I comprised Medicare patients wo had undergone cataract surgery (CPT 66984) and Group II comprised those Medicare patients who did not undergo cataract surgery. Statistical analysis was performed via two-tailed T-test. Results: Group I (cataract surgery) had a 0.59% frequency of diagnostic vptosis compared to 0.41% for Group II (no cataract surgery, p ≤ 0.001). Also, Group I (cataract surgery) had a 0.18% frequency of ptosis surgery compared to 0.071% for Group II (no cataract surgery, p ≤ 0.001). Conclusions: There is a statistically significant increase in the frequency of the diagnosis and the surgical correction of ptosis in patients who have previously undergone cataract surgery.
