Impact on the corneal and anterior chamber characteristics after femtosecond laser cataract surgery

Femtosecond laser cataract surgery (FLACS) is being increasingly used in the preparation for cataract surgery. Benefits of circular capsulorrhexis and reduced phacoemulsification energy have been shown in the literature. This study was designed to assess the anterior chamber characteristics and...

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...

How much money is wasted on tests prior to cataract surgery? And why?

For routine cataract surgery, numerous studies have found that preoperative testing does not contribute usefully to safety or surgical success. Despite such guidelines, tests ordered for patients prior to phacoemulsification in the US remains high. To quantify the associated costs,...

How does cataract surgery affect eyes with wet AMD?

In this retrospective cohort study the authors’ primary objective was to assess whether cataract surgery in eyes with wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD), triggered its progression. The surgical group comprised of 40 eyes versus 42 eyes in the non-surgical control...

Comparison of SIA from femtosecond laser and manual CCIs for cataract surgery

This study group compared the differences in surgically induced astigmatism (SIA) vector, flattening effect, torque and wound architecture following both femtosecond laser and manual clear corneal incisions (CCIs). A double-armed, randomised, prospective case series was conducted. Cataract surgery was performed...

Effect of cataract surgery on inflammation control and vision in uveitis patients

This retrospective longitudinal study from Moorfields, London, UK compared uveitis recurrence rates and vision loss in 309 eyes of uveitis patients post cataract surgery to 300 control uveitis patients. Cataract is a common complication associated with uveitis and leads to...

Two New Swiss Made Toric EDOF IOLs for Cataract Surgery

Switzerland, NEUCHATEL--SAV-IOL (Swiss Advanced Vision) announced the release of Lucidis Toric and Eden Toric, two new intraocular lenses (IOLs) to correct astigmatism after cataract surgery.

Optimizing Suboptimal Results Following Cataract Surgery: Refractive and Non-Refractive Management

This is a great book with contributions from well-known figures in the world of ophthalmology. It would be a beneficial read for any ophthalmology trainee or consultant as it covers something that is quite essential in ophthalmic surgery – giving...

Oral glycerol effect on anterior chamber depth during cataract surgery

The authors present the findings of a controlled clinical trial where cataract patients having surgery for both eyes at least seven days apart were given oral glycerol preoperatively when operating on the right eye. This meant that the left eye...

Nepafenac punctal plugs after cataract surgery: a new alternative?

The nepafenac punctal plug delivery system (N-PPDS) is an experimental L-shaped plug made of nonbiodegradable, preservative-free medical-grade silicone. It can deliver a sustained level of nepafenac for six weeks. This is a prospective, randomised, parallel-arm, double-masked, placebo-controlled, phase II pilot...

Visual and refractive outcomes and complications in FLACS versus CPS cataract surgery

This is a randomised, controlled study of 110 paired eyes from 55 patients that were randomised into either femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) or conventional phacoemulsification cataract surgery (CPS) groups. Visual, refractive outcomes, intraocular pressure (IOP) and complications were compared...

Topical nonsteroidal ant-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in patients undergoing cataract surgery

Inflammation is a major risk factor for the development of cystoid macular oedema (CMO) after cataract surgery, leading to breakdown of the blood-retina barrier. There is a correlation between severity of CMO and level of postoperative inflammation. Laser flare meter...
