The rate of realignment of two toric monofocal intraocular lenses (IOL)

This retrospective study used the American Academy of Ophthalmology Registry data to analyse the need of reoperation for realignment within the first year after cataract surgery with a TECNIS or AcrySof monofocal toric IOL implanted during 2016 and 2017. They...


Are any precautions needed when performing cataract surgery in thrombocytopenic patients?

In this retrospective multi-centre study, charts for 196 eyes of 150 thrombocytopenic patients were reviewed. The mean preoperative platelet level was 73.0 ± 20.5 × 103/μL (median of 76.0 × 103/μL), with a range of 17 to 100 × 103/μL...


Comparing tensile strengths of two scleral fixated intraocular lenses: CT-Lucia and MA60

The authors designed a benchtop model to measure the tensile strengths and resistance to breakage of the haptics and haptic-optic junctions of the CT Lucia 602 (Carl Zeiss, California) and AcrySof MA60 (Alcon Laboratories, Texas) IOLs. For the haptic breakage...
