Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness and safety profile of combined phacoemulsification with 23G pars plana vitrectomy when compared to pars plana vitrectomy alone in phakic patients. Methods: This study was performed at Al-Ehsan Eye Hospital (tertiary care eye hospital in Lahore, Pakistan) from January 2016 to August 2016. A total of 40 eyes in two equal groups of 20 eyes each, were enrolled in this prospective study. Group-A underwent combined phaco-vitrectomy, whereas Group-B underwent vitrectomy only for various vitreoretinal pathologies...

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...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the effect of three different combinations of tip designs and infusion systems in torsional phacoemulsification (INFINITI and CENTURION) in patients with cataract. According to the manufacturer, two unique improvements in the Centurion are: active fluid dynamic management system and use of an intrepid balanced tip. The study specifically aimed to evaluate the beneficial effects, if any, of change in tip design and infusion system individually and in combination on both per-operative parameters as well as endothelial health over 6 months...

Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment associated with choroidal detachment (RRDCD) is a special type of complex retinal detachment, and usually has a poor prognosis. This study aimed to assess the anatomical outcomes of 23-gauge pars plana vitrectomy (23G PPV) combined with phacoemulsification (phaco) and capsulotomy without intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in patients with RRDCD.Seventy-six consecutive patients with RRDCD, who underwent retinal repair surgery from January 2010 to December 2014, were retrospectively analyzed...

This paper reviews studies on biomechanical properties of the anterior lens capsule. Early experiments in this field were more fundamental. Later studies were aimed mainly at assessing the mechanical stability of the capsule edge after manual or femtosecond laser capsulorhexis (capsulotomy) - an important step in modern minimally invasive phaco surgery. For biomechanical tests, ex vivo samples of human and animal anterior capsules were used. The results of the studies presented here are quite heterogeneous, which suggests the necessity of gaining further insight into the issue...

Our objective is to investigate which factors and patient characteristics are associated with success in Trabectome surgery.A total of 658 phakic cases with at least of 12 months follow-up were included in the analysis. Baseline demographics and medical data were collected. The main outcome measure was intraocular pressure (IOP), glaucoma medication (Rx), and secondary glaucoma surgery if any. Success was defined as IOP reduction of 20% or more from preoperative IOP and IOP < 21 mm Hg with no secondary surgery throughout the follow-up period...

Background Advanced cataract with hard lens nuclei frequently challenge the ophthalmologic surgeon when doing phacoemulsification. In the present study, we examined the effect of a new phaco tip design during cataract surgery. Patients and Methods 100 patients were assigned to two groups. In group 1 (50 patients), the Kelman(®) tip design (Alcon) was used during phacoemulsification, while in group 2 (50 patients), the Intrepid(®) Balanced Tip was applied. Trypan blue was used in both groups, if necessary, to stain the anterior lens capsule prior to capsulorhexis...
