Risk factors for intraoperative floppy iris syndrome

Intraoperative floppy iris syndrome (IFIS) is charcterised by flaccid iris stroma leading to fluttering and billowing of iris, tendency of iris to prolapse through surgical incisions and causing intraoperative pupil constriction. IFIS is characterised as complete when all three features...

Intraoperative floppy iris syndrome and prevalence of intraoperative complications

Alpha-blockers (particularly of the selective type) are known to be associated with intraoperative floppy iris (IFIS) and poor dilation, which can present in various severities during cataract surgery and need to be recognised in order to avoid intraoperative complications. Methods...

Identifying drugs associated with intraoperative floppy iris syndrome

Before David Chang MD from the University of California found out about intraoperative floppy iris syndrome (IFIS), ophthalmologists were mystified each time they came across cataract surgeries that were characterised by sudden intraoperative iris prolapse and pupil constriction. The biggest...

Long-term outcome of ALPI for plateau iris syndrome

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term outcomes of plateau iris syndrome (PIS) patients treated with argon laser peripheral iridoplasty (ALPI) following YAG laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI). Typical ALPI settings were a spot size of 200 to...

Phakic iris clip lenses and endothelial cell loss

This retrospective observational study included long-term results on endothelial cell losses in highly myopic eyes, which underwent phakic iris-clip lens implantations. Included in the analysis were 113 eyes with mean preoperative spherical equivalent (SEQ) of -14.67 +/- 5.15 Diopters (D)....

Iris chafing from displaced single-piece acrylic IOL

A 74-year-old man had persistent 3+ cell one month following left eye cataract extraction, complicated by anterior capsular rent and zonular dialysis at 7 o’clock, with single-piece acrylic intraocular lens implantation (IOL) in the capsular bag. Figure 1: Haptic-like transillumination...

Secondary iris-claw anterior chamber lens implantation in patients with aphakia without capsular support

This retrospective, non-randomised, non-comparative, interventional study including 128 eyes of 124 patients that presented with aphakia with no capsular support.

Changes in Japanese eyes after laser peripheral iridotomy

The aim of this study was to evaluate laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI) induced changes in anterior segment parameters, using the anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT). Seventy-two subjects of Japanese ethnicity with primary angle closure suspect (PACS), primary angle closure...
