Resveratrol protects against steroid induced intraocular pressure

Topical and systemic steroid delivery is a very effective treatment for many ocular conditions but is compromised by raised intraocular pressure which in turn leads to death of retinal ganglion cells and irreversible blindness. This is an important consideration with...

Intraocular pressure reduction after cataract surgery

Several studies have shown the efficacy of cataract surgery in lowering intraocular pressure (IOP), especially in angle closure glaucoma compared to open angle. A total of 156 eyes of 109 patients (without glaucoma or with medically controlled glaucoma) were included....

Toric intraocular lens rotation related to the capsulorrhexis

The risk factors for postoperative rotation in the early post-operative period; a longer axial length, younger patients, and with the rule astigmatism as described by Miyake T et al. (JCRS 2014) in a case series of six eyes. This letter...

Influence of overall intraocular lens diameter on rotational stability

It has been shown that approximately one in three patients undergoing cataract surgery have >1.0D corneal astigmatism and managing this during surgery is important to achieve good refractive outcomes. One of the widely used ways of reducing preoperative astigmatism during...

Under pressure: intraocular pressure and bariatric surgery

Obesity in the general patient population is increasing. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence recommends bariatric surgery with body-mass index (BMI) of over 40, or between 35-40 and other significant disease that could be improved with weight loss....

Clinical evaluation of a multifocal aspheric diffractive intraocular lens

This is a multi-centre prospective study involving five different centres in Europe including 52 patients with cataract. The average age was 68.5±10.5 years, 35 females were bilateral implanted with aspheric diffractive multifocal lens implantation of the Tecnis 1-Piece multifocal intraocular...

Intraocular pressure changes following TOHM washout

This retrospective study between 2008 and 2019 of 110 eyes with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG), 33 eyes with ocular hypertension (OHT) and 43 eyes with uveitic glaucoma (UG) evaluated the changes in intraocular pressure (IOP) following topical ocular hypotensive...

A missed intraocular telescope – an opportunity to re-focus the evidence

Intraocular telescopes allow magnification of the image so that it would be projected into a larger area of the macula, this makes the central defect caused by dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD) smaller. The most common approach is a Galilean...

A case of late spontaneous subluxation of in-the-bag intraocular implant

An 82-year-old frail lady was referred by her optometrist with a finding of subluxated implant in the right eye. She had uneventful phacoemulcification with in-the-bag intraocular implant 17 years earlier. There is no history of having had pseudoexfoliation (PXF) or...

Forward-tilt technique for intraocular pressure measurement in upgaze

The authors suggest a technique to improve the accuracy of measuring IOP in upgaze using Goldmann applanation tonometry. Graves’ ophthalmopathy, also known as thyroid eye disease, is an autoimmune inflammatory condition affecting the orbit and periorbital tissues [1]. It was...

Accuracy of intraocular lens power calculations in paediatric eyes

A study comparing the accuracy of the SRK II, SRK/T, Hoffer Q, Holladay 1, T2 and Super formula in predictive refractive outcomes in children undergoing primary IOL insertion into the capsular bag following cataract surgery. A total of 377 eyes...

Sustainability in eyecare: Intraocular gases and the climate emergency

In 2020 the NHS became the first national health system to commit to delivering ‘net zero’ carbon emissions by 2040. The author investigates how the impact of ophthalmic surgery can be reduced. Medical gases have been used in ophthalmic surgery...
