Oral omega-3 fatty acid treatment for dry eye in contact lens wearers

This study evaluates the effect of dietary omega-3 fatty acid supplementation of dry eye symptoms, tear film tests, and conjunctival impression cytology in patients with contact lens wear-associated dry eye. In this randomised double-blind, multi-centred trial, contact lens wearers (n=...

Is lens constant optimisation for IOLMaster indispensable in order to achieve a good refractive outcome?

A study of refractive outcomes following cataract surgery was carried out with the aim of comparing the postoperative refractive outcomes against Royal College of Ophthalmologists standards and to determine the extent of association between accuracy of intraocular lens (IOL) power...

The refractive index in the eye lens – implications for clinical practice and optical design

The eye may appear to be a comparatively simple organ and yet its optical system is complex and continues to be a source of investigation and research. The major optical elements are considered to be the cornea and the lens...

Long-term outcome of scleral-sutured posterior chamber intraocular lens

This is a retrospective review of 392 consecutive cases in 349 patients who had scleral-sutured intraocular lens (IOL) due to aphakia, subluxated or luxated IOL, over a 10-year period in one centre from Barcelona. Preop and postop data were collected...

Bandage contact lens cultures after corneal collagen cross-linking

Corneal collagen cross-linking (CCL) is a treatment modality that has been shown to stop the progression of keratoconus. There have also been reports that CCL acts as an antimicrobiologic agent in treating resistant microbial keratitis. This study aimed to investigate...

Incidence and risk factors of late in the bag intraocular lens dislocation

The aim of this study was to identify risk factors for late in the bag dislocation over a 21 year period. Worldwide the incidence varies from 0.05% to 3.0%. In this Swedish study they report an increase in incidence in...

Ocular lubrication versus bandage contact lens in recurrent erosion syndrome (RES)

Twenty-nine patients (eight traumatic, five epithelial basement membrane dystrophy, two idiopathic) were randomised using SPSS to either ocular lubricants or bandage contact lenses (BCLs). Only patients previously treated with ocular lubricants were included. Patients with previous surgery, laser treatment, dry...

Wrong intraocular lens events – what lessons have we learned?

Data from wrong IOL patient safety incidents (PSIs) submitted to the National Reporting and Learning System (2010–2014) were reviewed and scrutinised by thematic analysis and compared with the historical data collected for groups in 2003-2010, prior to the mandatory checklist...

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. All patients consecutively underwent Artisan iris-claw intraocular lense (IOL) implantation between 1997 and 2010. The inclusion criteria were: aphakic without...

Effect of laser wavelength on delivering effective burns through opaque lens using pattern scan laser

Panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) has been used in the treatment of various retinal disorders for many decades. Conventional single-spot lasers take quite some time to do with significantly higher pain, anxiety and photophobia when compared to the pattern scan laser (PSL)....
