Postoperative astigmatism

The authors investigate the short and long-term postoperative refractive effects of medial rectus recession on the involved eye and explain the detectable effects in detail by the results of vector analysis in 52 eyes and 32 patients. The subjects had...

Congenital ptosis and astigmatism

This is a review of the effect of congenital ptosis surgery on refractive error. Seventy-one eyes of 56 patients were reviewed. The unoperated eye in unilateral cases was used as the control group. The mean age at surgery was 5.1...

Association of astigmatism and inferior oblique over action

The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between primary inferior oblique over action and astigmatism along the axis on the overacting muscle. The authors explored the postoperative change in axis of astigmatism and cylinder power in a...

Aspheric toric IOL implantation and LRI in eyes with cataracts and astigmatism

This is a prospective study from a single unit to compare the visual outcome of aspheric toric intraocular lens (IOL) implantation and limbal relaxing incisions (LRI) for management of coexisting age-related cataracts and astigmatism. Sixty eyes of 60 patients with...

Ametropic amblyopia and stereopsis

This study aimed to evaluate the correlations between ametropic amblyopia (hypermetropic – 110, myopic – 30, and astigmatic – 65) and stereopsis in 205 children – mean age of 5.2 years ±1.8. For near stereopsis, significant results were found for...

Piggyback toric IOLs in complex cases

This study evaluates the outcome of toric sulcus fixated lenses (MS 614/714 TPB (Human Optics, Germany) in 21 eyes with high astigmatism. The cases included previous penetrating keratoplasty (n=15), post cataract surgery astigmatism (n=3), rotation of in-the-bag toric IOL (n=1),...

Comparison of vision screeners

The primary purpose of this study was to calibrate the various paediatric photoscreeners over a range of contact lens induced hyperopic and astigmatic anisometropia using the American Association of Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (AAPOS) criteria for anisometropic or axial astigmatism....

Outcomes after surgical excision of limbal dermoid

The authors aimed to report the visual and refractive outcomes and complications of simple excision of limbal dermoid (LD) sparing the visual axis and Descemet’s membrane in children aged ≤8 years. This was a retrospective review over 2000-2019 including 19...

Liquid adhesive bandage for clear corneal cataract incisions

This paper reports a prospective randomised controlled trial of patients undergoing routine phacoemulsification with a 2.75mm clear corneal incision and followed up for 14 days postoperatively. They evaluated wound edge closure, surgically induced astigmatism and foreign body sensation after use...

The results of the last survey Feb21

Once again, I am grateful for the responses and read the results with interest. I am always surprised by the amount of practice variation I see. I fully accept there is art in what we do and there is no...

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...

Corneal biomechanics and refractive outcomes after cataract surgery

The authors aimed to study a range of corneal properties and correlate them with refractive outcomes after phacoemulsification. Outcomes were reviewed in a fairly small group of 40 patients (including only right eyes) operated by two surgeons using clear corneal...
