Zhipeng You, Yan Qin, Guodong Li, Ke Shi
RATIONALE: Iridoschisis is a rare eye disease. In this case report, we described the examination and diagnosis of a case of iridoschisis accompanied by secondary glaucoma. We also observed the effects of treating the patient with a combination of goniosynechialysis and cataract removal. PATIENT CONCERN: A 67-year-old female patient presented with decreased vision in both eyes. An eye examination indicated that visual acuities (VAs) were 20/100 and light perception in the right and left eyes, respectively...

PURPOSE: To assess changes in the thickness of the subfoveal retina and choroid after phacoemulsification using enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT). METHODS: A prospective study was conducted on 100 patients. The subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT) was measured at 7 points and the retinal thickness was measured at 5 points (before surgery, and 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, and 3 months after surgery). RESULTS: The foveal choroidal thickness showed a thickening trend (but p > 0...

PURPOSE: To report results of lens capsular flap transplantation (LCFT) and autologous whole blood application in refractory macular hole (MH) treatment. METHODS: Seven phakic and three aphakic eyes with persistent MH after standard surgery with internal limiting membrane peeling were studied. Lens capsule flap was acquired from the same eye in eight cases (seven phakic and one aphakic). The fellow eye was used in two aphakic eyes without sufficient lens capsule...

IMPORTANCE: Quality of vision after multifocal intraocular lens (IOLs) implantation in relation to patient satisfaction. It is important to include the evaluation of visual quality and patient satisfaction in clinical practice. BACKGROUND: To evaluate and compare quality of life and patient satisfaction after implantation of three types of diffractive- refractive and apodized-diffractive bifocal and trifocal multifocal IOLs. DESIGN: Comparative, prospective, case series, randomized PARTICIPANTS: 104 eyes of 52 patients METHODS: 104 eyes of 52 patients underwent phacoemulsification surgery with bilateral implantation of one of three multifocal IOLs: AT LISA 809M (Carl Zeiss Meditec) (AT LISA group, 38 eyes), AT LISAtri 839MP (Carl Zeiss Meditec) (AT LISAtri group, 32 eyes), and ReSTOR SN6AD1 (Alcon) (ReSTOR group, 34 eyes)...

PURPOSE: Phacoemulsification is the surgical procedure of choice for cataract, providing excellent visual and safety outcomes. Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) is an addition to the surgical armamentarium. The study aims to compare the outcomes of FLACS using LenSx™ (Alcon Inc., USA) to standard 2.2 mm clear corneal phacoemulsification. Prospective case-control, comparative, interventional study was conducted in a tertiary care center. METHODS: In each group, 55 eyes of 55 patients underwent cataract surgery using either FLACS or conventional phacoemulsification (control group)...

BACKGROUND: Trabectome surgery combined with phacoemulsification is effective in lowering (intraocular pressure) IOP in pseudoexfoliation glaucoma. Trabectome surgery usually aims to remove two to four clock hours of the trabecular meshwork. When adding trabecular aspiration, the remaining meshwork can be treated as well, and therefore 360 degrees of the meshwork can be reached. This study was conducted to investigate the additional benefits and risks of adding trabecular aspiration to the combination of phacoemulsification and trabectome as a triple procedure...

The aim of this study was to use Descemet's Stripping-automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK) as a novel treatment to remove thioridazine corneal deposits. A 53-year-old female presented with a 3-month history of visual loss and glare. She had been taking thioridazine (100 mg/day for 1 year) for a psychiatric disorder. Dense yellowish-brown deposits had developed in the posterior stroma. Thioridazine was discontinued, and she was switched to fluoxetine. One year after discontinuation of thioridazine, her symptoms and signs did not resolve...

PURPOSE: (1) To propose the use of episcleral venous outflow (EVO) as an outcome marker of iStent surgery, and an EVO grading scale. (2) To determine the association of EVO with: (a) postoperative intraocular pressure (IOP) and medication burden; (b) iStent patency status. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Retrospective cohort study including 151 glaucomatous eyes having undergone iStent-phacoemulsification surgery.

PURPOSE: To assess the decentration and angle of tilt of the intraocular lens (IOL) according to the intravitreal tamponade types used in combined phacoemulsification and vitreoretinal surgery. METHODS: This prospective and randomized clinical study involved 73 eyes of 69 patients who underwent combined vitreoretinal surgery. Eyes with intravitreal tamponades formed the study group and eyes without intravitreal tamponades formed the control group. The study group was further divided into silicone oil and gas tamponade subgroups...

We report a case of central corneal steepness formation after cataract surgery in a post-laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) eye. A 51-year-old woman with traumatic cataract and a history of myopic LASIK surgery had uneventful phacoemulsification cataract surgery. Postoperatively, the corneal topography difference map showed a central island formation of 2.1 diopters (D) compared with the preoperative level, which correlated with a clinical myopic shift of 2.00 D from the targeted emmetropia. At 4 months, most of the central island had resolved spontaneously...

PURPOSE: To determine the optimum bottle height, vacuum, aspiration rate, and power settings in the peristaltic mode of the Whitestar Signature Pro machine with Ellips FX tip action (transversal). SETTING: John A. Moran Eye Center Laboratories, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. DESIGN: Experimental study. METHODS: Porcine lens nuclei were hardened with formalin and cut into 2.0 mm cubes. Lens cubes were emulsified using transversal and fragment removal time (efficiency), and fragment bounces off the tip (chatter) were measured to determine optimum aspiration rate, bottle height, vacuum, and power settings in the peristaltic mode...

INTRODUCTION: It is known that phacoemulsification of cataracts after penetrating keratoplasty there are always some difficulties and of course a higher rate of different intraoperative complications. Phacoemulsification after PK may cause significant endothelial injury and affect long term graft survival.

PURPOSE: To evaluate the outcome of combined Ahmed glaucoma valve (AGV) and phacoemulsification with posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation under infliximab in refractory uveitic glaucoma (UG). METHODS: In this prospective interventional case series, 26 eyes of 26 patients with refractory UG underwent surgery under intravenous infliximab.

PURPOSE: To apply propensity score matching to compare Baerveldt glaucoma drainage implant (BGI) to Trabectome-mediated ab interno trabeculectomy (AIT). Recent data suggests that AIT can produce results similar to BGI which is traditionally reserved for more severe glaucoma. METHODS: BGI and AIT patients with at least 1 year of follow-up were included. The primary outcome measures were intraocular pressure (IOP), number of glaucoma medications, and a Glaucoma Index (GI) score...
