Intravitreal bevacizumab vs. triamcinolone in patients with DMO at the time of cataract surgery

This prospective, single masked randomised control trial (RCT) compared visual and anatomical outcomes when either intravitreal bevacizumab (BVB) or triamcinolone (TA) was administered at the time of cataract surgery and at subsequent review, if required, in patients with diabetic macula...

Cataract surgery and long-term risk of glaucoma in PEX

The objective of this study was to compare the development of glaucoma and IOP over an extended time period following cataract surgery in eyes with and without pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PEX), and trying to determine the impact of cataract surgery on...

Refractive changes after surgery

A long-term follow-up study was conducted to report power vector analysis of refractive astigmatic changes in a large group of 137 patients (250 eyes) undergoing horizontal strabismus surgery. Fifty-four percent were male. The average age was 9.22±8.21 years. Fifty-five percent...

Health-related quality of life after cataract surgery

This prospective study evaluates the impact of cataract surgery on subjects’ health-related quality of life (HRQoL) measured with a 15-dimension generic instrument, the 15D. The HRQoL of cataract subjects was compared with that of an age- and gender-standardised sample of...

Persian AS20 validation

The authors developed a Persian version of the AS20 questionnaire and used the new version to evaluate the effect of strabismus surgery on health-related quality of life. Two independent bilingual translators translated the English version AS20 into Persian. The two...

Muscle insertion measurement by ultrasound biomicroscopy

The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) preoperatively and postoperatively in patients having primary horizontal muscle surgery. Sixteen eyes of 15 patients with concomitant horizontal strabismus were evaluated; mean age 21.1 ±3.3 years,...

Nanofiber-based hydrogels prevent capsular opacification

Lens refilling is the replacement of the lens with a silicone polymer in an otherwise intact lens capsule. However, capsular opacification (CO), resulting in reduced visual acuity, is a major complication of these injectable accommodating lenses. Opacification is due to...

Phaco-ECP vs. Phaco alone to treat glaucoma

This retrospective review compared combined phacoemulsification and endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (phaco-ECP) to phaco alone in patients with mild to moderate glaucoma. Outcome measures included cumulative full and qualified success survival, postintervention IOP and ocular anti-hypertensive medication reduction. Full success was defined...

Micropulse vs. continuous wave trans scleral diode cyclophotocoagulation in refractory glaucoma

Continuous wave cyclophotocoagulation (CWCPC) delivers continuous high intensity energy to the ciliary body in an attempt to reduce aqueous secretion and hence lower IOP. It is often used as a treatment of last resort due to the potential side-effects of...

Reported cases of hemifield slide phenomenon

This article reports three cases of hemifield slide, a phenomenon whereby there is an inability to stabilise and fuse visual hemifields. It occurs with heteronymous visual field loss and is thought to result from the loss of corresponding retinal points....
