It is traditionally thought that the anterior chamber depth (ACD) is an effective predictor of intraocular pressure (IOP) change after phacoemulsification.1,2 We therefore read with interest that Huang et al3 did not find a statistically significant correlation between ACD and IOP change after phacoemulsification.
