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...

We describe a modified scleral tunnel incision to provide adequate fracture resistance and maneuverability during manipulations in cataract surgery after radial keratotomy (RK) surgery. In cases without sufficient space between the RK incisions to create a corneal incision, the modified incision can be performed. A scleral groove of one-half scleral thickness is made 3.0 mm posterior to the limbus. The groove circumvents the end of the preexisting RK incision at the limbus. To prevent the incisional edge from sagging, the ends of the external incision are swept up slightly, forming a wave-shaped edge...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of secondary sulcus-fixed foldable intraocular lens (IOL) implantation through a clear corneal incision with 25-G infusion in patients with previous pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) after open-globe injury, and to analyze postoperative outcomes and prognostic factors of treatment. METHODS: Clinical data of 89 eyes of 89 patients with open-globe injury who underwent secondary sulcus-fixed foldable IOL implantation through a clear corneal incision with 25-G infusion after vitrectomy in our hospital between January 2008 and June 2015 were retrospectively analyzed...

Early diagnosis of congenital glaucoma allows surgery to be performed at the stage of reversible glaucomatous alterations of the optic disc and retina. In primary congenital glaucoma, the main reason for visual acuity reduction following surgical stabilization of the intraocular pressure are corneal changes. These include an increased corneal diameter, Haab's striae, areas of thickening and a greater posterior elevation. The resultant irregular astigmatism leads to amblyopia and a marked decrease in visual acuity...

AIM: to assess the influence of the endothelial graft thickness on postoperative visual acuity following modified endothelial keratoplasty (UTDSAEK). MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study included 49 patients with pseudophakic bullous keratopathy and no concomitant disorders of either the retina or optic nerve. Ultrathin Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (UTDSAEK) was performed in all cases. Corneal graft thickness was measured 1 year after UTDSAEK by means of optical coherence tomography...

INTRODUCTION: Use of Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK) has been limited because of problems with donor preparation, i.e. tearing of the Descemet membrane and difficulties in unfolding the Endothelium-Descemet-Membrane-Layer (EDML) in the anterior chamber (AC). The purpose of this work was to describe a novel approach to teaching anatomy-based donor and recipient preparation in a DMEK-Wetlab. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We teach successful mono-manual donor preparation of human corneas in organ culture not suitable for transplantation, including peripheral markers for orientation...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Pediatric keratoplasty poses unique challenges in clinical and surgical management. However, successful transplantation can afford a child vision in an otherwise poorly seeing eye. This review will provide an update on recent advances in pediatric keratoplasty. RECENT FINDINGS: Although children who receive corneal transplants remain at increased risk of rejection, infection, and graft dehiscence compared with adult corneal transplant recipients, new surgical techniques, and advances in clinical management have led to better outcomes...

This study evaluated the clinical outcomes in keratoconus corneas following accelerated transepithelial corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) (Avedro KXL(®) system, Waltham, MA, USA) over one year of follow-up. The mean depth of the demarcation line measured by optical coherence tomography (OCT) was 205.19 µm. One month after surgery, a non-statistically significant change was noted in sphere (P=0.18) and in spherical equivalent (P=0.17), whereas a significant improvement was observed in corrected distance visual acuity (P=0...

BACKGROUND: Universal postoperative guidelines for cataract extraction surgery are yet to be introduced. Artificial tears are gaining popularity as an additional integral component of the postoperative regime. The primary objective of this study was to explore the impact of two prevalent artificial tear preparations on postoperative discomfort following cataract extraction surgery. METHODS: A total of 180 patients that underwent cataract extraction surgery were randomly divided into three groups according to their postoperative regime: a) Study group 1 (SG1) received a fixed combination of tobramycin and dexamethasone (FCTD) quid for 3 weeks and, additionally polyethylene glycol 400/propylene glycol/hydroxypropyl-guar quid, for 6 weeks, b) Study group 2 (SG2) received FCTD quid for 3 weeks and, additionally 0...

BACKGROUND: Corneal graft (CG) surgery is the most common and successful tissue transplant worldwide. A small and important group of patients are operated in emergency situations, typically to save a perforated eye. Our knowledge of the indications and outcomes of emergency corneal graft (eCG) is limited. METHODS: Retrospective, multifactorial analysis of all CGs registered by the UK Transplant Service from April 1999 to March 2005. RESULTS: A total of 12 976 CGs were performed...

Laser-assisted refractive procedures have become very popular in the last two decades. As a result, a "generation" of patients with altered corneal properties is emerging. These patients will require both cataract extraction and glaucoma follow-up in the future. Since the glaucoma examination largely depends on the corneal properties, the reshaped postrefractive surgery cornea poses a challenge in the diagnosis, follow-up, and management of the glaucomatous patient. In order to overcome this problem, every patient who is planned to undergo corneal refractive surgery must have a thorough glaucoma examination in order for the ophthalmologist to be able to monitor their patients for possible glaucoma development and/or progression...

The purpose of this article is to examine outcomes of Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) performed with cornea bank (CB) prestripped tissue and surgeon stripped tissue (SST).This retrospective study examined subjects who underwent DMEK with CB or surgeon prepared tissue for Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), corneal thickness, endothelial cell count (ECC), and complications were examined before and throughout a 6-month postoperative period.Eleven CB and 22 SST subjects were included...
