Objective. This meta-analysis aimed to compare the outcomes and postoperative complications between femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) and conventional phacoemulsification cataract surgery (CPCS). Methods. Bibliographic databases, including PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane library, were systematically searched for references on or before September 2015 regarding the outcomes and complications by FLACS or CPCS. Data on corneal endothelial cell loss, uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA), corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA), refractive outcomes, and postoperative complications were retrieved...

This is a prospective clinical assay that included six patients who were diagnosed with penetrating corneal injury, traumatic cataract, and posterior segment intraocular foreign body (IOFB). Following anterior segment repair and extraction of traumatic cataract by clear cornea phacoemulsification, a standard 25-gauge transconjunctival pars plana vitrectomy was performed to find and release the IOFB. With active suction using a 25-gauge silicone tipped cannula, the foreign body was retrieved and safely placed in the anterior chamber...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to determine the reasons behind the failure of laser capsulotomy (LC) performed for significant posterior capsular opacification (PCO). METHODS: Eighty-eight eyes of 88 patients referred for LC at a tertiary care center were retrospectively analyzed. The data recorded included the cause of cataract, visual acuity, duration of PCO, location of PCO, intraocular lens (IOL) position, IOL type, and lens capsule status. These data were later analyzed for determining the requirement of high pulse energy during LC and the success rate of primary LC...

PURPOSE: To assess the pseudophakic anterior chamber depth (PP-ACD) or effective lens position (ELP) change after cataract surgery in patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PEX). METHODS: Consecutive eyes with PEX and cataract underwent standard phacoemulsification and were implanted with single-piece acrylic posterior chamber intraocular lenses (IOLs). Eyes with severe PEX and with axial length (AL) greater than 24 mm or less than 22 mm were not included. Eyes with capsular complication or unstable bags that needed capsular tension ring insertion were excluded...

Sensitive periods and experience-dependent plasticity have become core issues in visual system development. Converging evidence indicates that visual experience is an indispensable factor in establishing mature visual system circuitry during sensitive periods and the visual system exhibits substantial plasticity when facing deprivation. The mechanisms that underlie the environmental regulation of visual system development and plasticity are of great interest but need further exploration. Here, we investigated a unique sample of human infants who experienced initial stage blindness (beginning at birth and lasting 2 to 8 months) before the removal of bilateral cataracts...

PURPOSE: To report long-term outcomes of primary intraocular lens (IOL) placement in patients aged 7 to 24 months. METHODS: This was a retrospective study of 27 consecutive patients (28 eyes) aged 7 to 24 months who underwent cataract surgery with primary IOL placement. RESULTS: Average follow-up was 62.7 ± 41.7 months and the mean age of surgery was 14.4 ± 5.6 months. Mean final visual acuity was 1.02 ± 0.72 logMAR (20/209). Adverse events occurred in 7 eyes (25%) and included visual axis opacification in 6 eyes and pupillary block glaucoma in 1 eye...

Twenty-one months after successful small-aperture corneal inlay (Kamra) implantation simultaneous with myopic laser in situ keratomileusis, a patient presented with a superior rhegmatogenous macula-involving retinal detachment. Successful pars plana vitrectomy, transscleral cryotherapy, and gas tamponade were performed with the inlay in situ. Three months later, uneventful phacoemulsification and posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation were performed, also with the inlay in situ, for a visually significant cataract...

REVIEW
David J Hernstadt, Rahat Husain
Cataract surgery is a common procedure, and cystoid macular edema (CME) is a sight-threatening complication. Prostaglandin analogues are the first-line therapy for glaucoma, but their effect on the risk for CME after phacoemulsification is unknown. A systematic search of Medline and PubMed was performed to determine the effect of the use of prostaglandin analogues (PGA) on the development of CME after cataract surgery. A total of 412 articles were identified. Thirteen articles met inclusion criteria and were analyzed using Strengthening the Reporting of Observational Studies in Epidemiology (STROBE) criteria...
