PURPOSE: To evaluate the uveal and capsular biocompatibility of intraocular lenses (IOLs) with a hydrophilic anterior surface and a hydrophobic posterior surface in a rabbit model. SETTING: Eye Center, Affiliated Second Hospital, College of Medicine, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China. METHODS: Modified silicone IOLs were produced by grafting 2-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine (MPC) onto the anterior IOL surface using a plasma technique...

OBJECTIVE: To report 10 instances of decompression retinopathy (DCR) developing after intraocular surgery. METHODS: This was a case series of 9 patients (10 eyes). Decompression retinopathy occurred after trabeculectomy (4 eyes), phacomulsification (3 eyes), Ahmed valve placement (1 eye), silicone oil removal (1 eye) and vitrectomy (1 eye). Fundus evaluation and fluorescein angiography were performed in all instances. RESULTS: Superficial, subhyaloidal, and deep retinal hemorrhages were noted in the posterior pole and peripheral retina; some of these had a white center...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the actual use of clinical pathways and variances, and compare the length of hospital stay for surgery of cataract, glaucoma, and vitreoretinal disorder. METHODS: We designed eight types of clinical pathways for the treatment of cataract, glaucoma, and retinal-vitreous disease. We performed 102 phacoemulsifications and intraocular lens (IOL) implantations, 19 glaucoma or combined trabeculotomy and phacoemulsification/IOL, and 69 retinal-vitreous surgeries during a 1-year period from February 2002...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the operative difficulty of cataract phacoemulsification in an eye with shorter axial length and discuss its preventive measures. METHODS: A retrospective study was performed to analyze the 122 patients (143 eyes) who had undergone cataract phacomulsification. Their ocular axial lengths were 20.21 to 22.10 mm. RESULTS: Because these patients had shorter ocular axis, shallower anterior chamber depth, narrower space in the anterior ocular segment and higher vitreous pressure, the operation was hard to perform...

A 54-year-old man developed pupillary block resulting from pupillary capture 2 months after uneventful phacomulsification and AcrySof intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. The IOL was placed in the bag through a 6.0 mm continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis. The glaucoma was treated with intravenous drip infusion of a hyperosmotic diuretic, followed by peripheral iridectomy, iridocapsular synechiolysis, and IOL repositioning. The IOL loops were located completely in the bag. However, pupillary capture recurred 3 weeks after the surgery, at which time intraocular pressure was normal...
