Age-related maculopathy (ARM) is one of the leading causes of central visual acuity loss in older western population. Many factors are responsible for the fast development of ARM. One of this is significant increases of optical radiations through artificial lens after removal of the catarctous lens. The aim of this study was to compare progression of ARM in phakic and pseudophakic patients and to calculate the possibility ofpseudophakia as a risk factor for faster progression of ARM. Medical records of 76 patients, older than 60 years (32 male and 44 female) with early forms of ARM were randomly evaluated...

PURPOSE: Limbal relaxing incision (LRI) is an easy and safe procedure to reduce astigmatism. It should be clarified, whether the effect is discussed controversely, because the varying corneal diameter and consequently the varying LRI position was not considered. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 56 patients aged 76 +/- 9 years with preoperative astigmatism of 1.6 D (0.6 to 7.0 D) underwent an almost astigmatically neutral cataract procedure (3.2 mm temporal clear corneal phacoemulsification with foldable lens implantation) and received independently from the given corneal diameter limbus related relaxing incisions of 80 degrees length and 0...
