Backgroud: Modern day cataract surgery aims at a spectacle free vision which becomes difficult in cases with pre-operative astigmatism more than 1.5 D. Implantation of toric intra-ocular lenses (IOL) after phacoemulsification in such eyes is one of the ways to counteract this problem. Methods: Thirty eyes with pre-operative astigmatism between 1.5 D and 4.5 D were implanted with toric IOLs following uneventful phaco-emulsification. The estimation of the axis of implantation of this toric IOL included calculating the surgically induced astigmatism (SIA) of the surgeon...

REVIEW
Gaëlle Ho Wang Yin, Louis Hoffart
Postoperative visual acuity can be limited by post-keratoplasty astigmatism, even with a clear corneal graft. Astigmatism management can be performed by selective suture removal, adjustment of sutures, optical correction, photorefractive procedures, wedge resection, intra-ocular lens implantation, intracorneal ring segments, relaxing incisions with or without compression sutures and repeated keratoplasty. Relaxing incisions can be made in the graft, graft-host interface or host cornea. Despite the unpredictability of the method because the flat and steep meridians are usually not orthogonal after penetrating keratoplasty, with asymmetric power distribution, all the studies showed an overall reduction of refractive, keratometric or topographic astigmatism, ranging from 30% to 72% with manual or femtosecond-assisted techniques...

To study the optical changes on hydrogel-silicone intraocular lenses (IOLs) resulting from loading them with dexamethasone. We used prototype hydrogel(pHEMA)-silicone IOLs and loaded the matrices with an anti-inflammatory drug (dexamethasone). The optical properties we analyzed experimentally were a) modulation transfer function (MTF); b) spectral transmission; c) diopter power. These determinations were performed on drug-loaded IOLs, IOLs that had released the drug, and IOLs that had not been drug-loaded. Loading a hydrogel-silicone IOL with dexamethasone results in impairment of its optical qualities, in particular its MTF and spectral transmission, but not dioptric power...

OBJECTIVES: Both advanced age and depression are characterized by changes in sleep patterns. Light exposure is one of the main synchronizers of circadian cycles and influences sleep by inhibiting melatonin secretion, which is mostly sensitive to light of low wavelengths (blue). Blue-blocking (yellow) intraocular lenses (IOLs) have supplanted the usual UV-blocking (clear) IOLs during cataract surgery to prevent age-related macular degeneration, however, the impact of yellow IOLs on sleep and mood is unclear...

Jue Liang, Jessica J Struckhoff, Paul D Hamilton, Nathan Ravi
Presbyopia, the inability to focus at arm's length, and cataracts that cloud vision are associated primarily with changes in the mechanical and optical properties of the lens. The optical properties, particularly the refractive index, of the human lens originate from the cytoplasm of the lens fiber, which contains a highly concentrated solution (∼40%) of globular proteins referred to as α, β, and γ crystallins, of which β is the most abundant. In this study, we focus on the synthesis and characterization of a β-crystallin biomimetic in an effort to understand and develop treatments for presbyopia and cataract...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Late pressure angioedema is a rare form of angioedema in which light pressure stimulus can lead to edema after 1-12h. This uncommon and unreported entity is especially important in patients who undergo general anesthesia, for whom the usual harmless supine position, intravenous catheter insertion, standard monitoring, airway management and ventilation can lead to life threatening consequences as the trigger is a physical stimulus. CASE REPORT: In this report, we describe a successful perioperative anesthetic management of a 30 year old patient, proposed for intra-ocular lens insertion, with a severe form of the disease with peri-oral, tongue and limb edema presentation...

With wide-spread performance of pars plana vitrectomy, cataract surgeries with no vitreous are getting more and more. This kind of surgery has great difference between individuals and it lacks randomized large sample clinical trial. Surgical strategy decision was basically relied on the surgeon's personal experience. We should fully aware the individual and common characteristics of no vitreous cataract surgery. Surgical time should be carefully decided. Complete ocular examination, evaluation, design of cataract surgical procedure and appropriate intra-ocular lens selection are needed...
