PURPOSE: To evaluate the clinical results of toric trifocal diffractive intraocular lens in eyes with cataract and mild keratoconus. METHODS: Five keratoconus patients (10 eyes) that had bilateral AT LISA 939 implantation were selected and had followed in 3-time horizons of 1, 3, and 6 months. Patients were 46 to 65 years old age, corneal astigmatism of (2.00 D at 6.75 D) and cataract that all of them needed cataract surgery. The distance, intermediate and near visual acuities, defocus curve, ocular aberrations, contrast sensitivity, were measured as effectiveness criteria...

BACKGROUND: To stratify the outcomes of phacoemulsification combined with trabectome surgery using a new glaucoma severity index. METHODS: This is a retrospective, observational cohort study that included open angle glaucoma patients with visually significant cataract that had phacoemulsification combined with trabectome surgery. Exclusion criteria were follow-up less than 12 months, any other surgeries or diagnosis of neovascular or active uveitic glaucoma. Patients were stratified into four groups according to the Glaucoma Index (GI) that incorporated preoperative intraocular pressure (IOP), number of medications and visual field status...

Oliver D Schein, Peter J Pronovost
Cataract surgery poses minimal systemic medical risk, yet a preoperative general medical history and physical is required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and other regulatory bodies within 1 month of cataract surgery. Based on prior research and practice guidelines, there is professional consensus that preoperative laboratory testing confers no benefit when routinely performed on cataract surgical patients. Such testing remains commonplace. Although not yet tested in a large-scale trial, there is also no evidence that the required history and physical yields a benefit for most cataract surgical patients above and beyond the screening performed by anesthesia staff on the day of surgery...

IMPORTANCE: This study highlights the efficacy and safety of trabeculectomy in Victoria, Australia. BACKGROUND: Trabeculectomy is currently the gold- standard in glaucoma surgery. However, its role has been increasingly questioned due to its associated risks and complications. This audit aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of trabeculectomy surgery in the state of Victoria, Australia. DESIGN: A cross-sectional, retrospective, and voluntary state- wide audit of trabeculectomy surgery by individual surgeons in 2012 with 24-months follow-up...

DESIGN: Prospective randomized controlled study. METHODS: Patients with cataract had phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation in 1 eye. They were randomly assigned to receive OVD 1 or OVD 2. Preoperative and postoperative examinations over 3 months included mean intraocular pressure (IOP), incidence of IOP peaks (≥30 mm Hg and ≥24 mm Hg), endothelial cell count (ECC), corneal thickness, and intraocular inflammation...

PURPOSE: In this study, we used the PuREC to carry out electroretinography (ERG) measurements using skin electrodes to assess changes before and after microincision vitreous surgery (MIVS) for epiretinal membrane (ERM) and evaluate the stress on retinal function soon after MIVS. METHODS: The study subjects were 18 eyes of 18 patients who underwent MIVS for ERM simultaneously with cataract surgery. ERG measurements were performed using a skin electrode on the day before vitreous surgery, on the day after surgery, and 1 week later...

AIMS: To develop financial models which offset additional costs associated with femtosecond laser (FL)-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) against improvements in productivity and to determine important factors relating to its implementation into the National Health Service (NHS). METHODS: FL platforms are expensive, in initial purchase and running costs. The additional costs associated with FL technology might be offset by an increase in surgical efficiency. Using a 'hub and spoke' model to provide high-volume cataract surgery, we designed a financial model, comparing FLACS against conventional phacoemulsification surgery (CPS)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the long-term outcomes of ciliary sulcus versus capsular bag fixation of intraocular lenses (IOLs) in children after pediatric cataract surgery. METHODS: IOL was implanted in the ciliary sulcus in 21 eyes of 14 children, and in the capsular bag in 19 eyes of 12 children for the treatment of pediatric cataract in an institutional setting. Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) was performed. Main outcome measures included IOL decentration, IOL tilt, anterior chamber depth (ACD), angle-opening distance at 500 μm (AOD500), trabecular-iris angle (TIA), best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), intraocular pressure (IOP), and incidence of postoperative complications...

PURPOSE: To report ocular side effects after inadvertent intracameral injection of a high dose of cefuroxime. METHODS: Nineteen eyes of 19 patients were seen in our eye department 1 week after the referring surgeon had injected an erroneous dose of intracameral cefuroxime (12.5 mg/0.1 mL in 14 patients, Group A, and 10 mg/0.1 mL in 5 patients, Group B) at the end of a cataract surgery. A complete ophthalmic examination was performed postoperatively. RESULTS: Eight patients (42...

We describe here a surgical technique of removing the remaining cortex after phacoemulsification without performing the conventional irrigation/aspiration (I/A) procedure. In this technique, the remaining cortex attached to the posterior capsule was separated and dissected into several pieces by continuous irrigation with balanced salt solution, which was supplied through a syringe attached to a bent, blunt-tip needle. Approximately, 10 s of manual irrigation separated most of the remaining cortex from the posterior capsule...

INTRODUCTION: As in all surgeries, complications during cataract surgery are unavoidable and cause distress to the surgeon and the patient. This study was conducted to know the factors contributing to complications in our settings, to be able to counsel patients about complications and outcomes and to reduce litigations. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The secondary data analysis was conducted using the National Eye Database from 2007 to 2014. Demographic features, ocular comorbidities, technique of surgery, grade of surgeons, types of intraoperative complications, and reasons for not obtaining good visual acuity following intraoperative complications were studied...

PURPOSE: To study the effects of repeated intravitreal injection of anti-VEGF drug bevacizumab on the vitreoretinal interface (VRI). METHODS: Patients undergoing intravitreal injection of bevacizumab were enrolled. Eyes with media haze, uveitis, high myopia, history of cataract surgery or laser capsulotomy in last 6 months and complicated pseudophakia were excluded. VRI evaluation was done monthly for a minimum of 6 months. The nature and timing of the change(s) event was recorded...
