PURPOSE: To determine the prevalence of the transforming growth factor (TGF) β-induced gene corneal dystrophies in refractive surgery candidates in China. SETTING: Five hospitals in China. DESIGN: Prospective case series. METHOD: Refractive surgical candidates from 5 preselected eye hospitals/centers in China were recruited after providing informed consent. All patients had slitlamp biomicroscopy and collection of a buccal swab as a source of DNA for screening of the TGF β-induced gene for the 5 most common mutations associated with Reis-Bückler corneal dystrophy, Thiel-Behnke corneal dystrophy, granular corneal dystrophy type 1, granular corneal dystrophy type 2, and lattice corneal dystrophy type 1...

We present a case of successful removal of late calcium deposition on the posterior surface of a silicone intraocular lens (IOL) optic in association with asteroid hyalosis using a surgical technique that included pars plana vitrectomy, a lighted pick, and a modified silicone-tipped cannula. The lighted pick provided the most efficient and complete removal of calcium deposits. Postoperatively, the dystrophic calcification was removed and the IOL optic was clear at 6 months follow-up. The patient's symptoms resolved and uncorrected distance visual acuity returned to 20/20...

REVIEW
Jasmine Chuang, Kendrick Co Shih, Tommy C Chan, Kelvin H Wan, Vishal Jhanji, Louis Tong
An impaired ocular surface adversely affects preoperative planning for cataract surgery, including intraocular lens (IOL) calculations, toric IOL axis and magnitude estimates, keratometry, and topography measurements. It also increases surgical difficulty. We performed a review to evaluate the connection between cataract surgery and dry eye and to determine the best management for these patients. Of the 16 papers included in this review, 6 were randomized controlled trials. Cataract surgery was shown to worsen ocular parameters and aggravate dry-eye disease...

PURPOSE: To assess the effect of varying levels of torsional power on phacoemulsification efficiency using an active-fluidics phacoemulsification platform with a 0.7 mm Sonata tip. SETTING: John A. Moran Eye Center Laboratories, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. DESIGN: Experimental study. METHODS: A 0.7 mm tip was used to emulsify 2.0 mm porcine lenses that had been hardened in formalin. The torsional power was varied from 10% to 100% at intervals of 10%, and efficiency and chatter were recorded...

PURPOSE: To assess the quality of life in French keratoconus patients. SETTING: Fifty-seven Keratoconus National Reference Centers across France. DESIGN: Prospective case series. METHODS: Patients completed the National Eye Institute Visual Functioning Questionnaire-25 (NEI VFQ-25) and a French validated questionnaire on disability and dependency from February to June 2012 when they came for an ophthalmic examination at 57 participating centers across France...

PURPOSE: To assess a new objective cataract grading method based on lens densitometry on swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) scans provided by the IOLMaster 700. SETTINGS: Rothschild Foundation, Paris, France. DESIGN: Prospective case series. METHODS: All patients consulting for cataract evaluation who provided their consent to participate in the study were included. A history of eye surgery, corneal or retinal disorders, and ocular dryness were exclusion criteria...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of fragmentation patterns (pie pattern versus grid pattern) on effective phacoemulsification time (EPT). SETTING: Department of Ophthalmology, Goethe University, Frankfurt am Main, Germany. DESIGN: Retrospective case series. METHODS: Eyes that had femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery were included. One half of the group was treated with the pie pattern. The preoperative lens density was evaluated by Scheimpflug imaging (Pentacam)...
