Outcomes of cataract surgery in eyes with weak zonules

Pseudoexfoliation (PEX) and zonular weakness have long been known to increase the risk of complication of cataract surgery. This retrospective study looks at the results of phacoemulsion and intraocular implantation in 295 eyes with pseudoexfoliation and zonular weakness, with a...

Risk stratification to reduce intraoperative cataract surgical complications

The authors prospectively collected data on 1135 consecutive patients undergoing cataract surgery. They were risk stratified according to categories – A (no additional risk factors, 0 points), B (vitrectomy, corneal scarring, small pupil less than 3mm, shallow anterior chamber less...

Cystoid macular oedema following cataract surgery

This review covers the history, incidence, diagnosis, risk factors, pathophysiology and medical management of postoperative macular oedema (PCMO), with a particular emphasis on key contemporary studies and novel observations. The authors revisit the incidence of well-established risk factors including intraoperative...

Preoperative anxiety levels and pain during cataract surgery
