Purpose: To evaluate the Neutrophil to Lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and Platelet to Lymphocyte ratio (PLR) in patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PES). Material and Methods: Fifty-? ve patients with PES and 33 patients with no problems other than cataract and refractive error were included in the study. Results: The mean NLR was found 2.59±1.48 in patients with PES and 1.75±0.6 in the control group. The difference was statistically signi? cant (p=0.002). The mean PLR was 119,95±65,93 in patients with PES and 114,84±39,88 in the control group. The difference between the two groups was not statistically signi? cant (p=0,29). Conclusion: In? ammation has an important role in the formation of PES. Therefore, NLO can be used as a new in? ammatory biomarker which is simple and easily accessible in the diagnosis and follow-up of PES.
