Thea Manchester Glaucoma Anatomy Series Webinars 3: Lens

Webinars commence at 6pm and finish at 8pm. Manchester Royal eye hospital and Thea Pharmaceuticals - specialists in preservative-free eyecare - present to you an interactive series of glaucoma webinars, bringing together some of the most respected names in Ophthalmology from around the world. Chaired by Mr Leon Au from Manchester, and combining theory, practice, cases and discussion as we explore 5 anatomical structures related to the field glaucoma.

Cataract in patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome

The authors present a prospective comparative study in 43 patients with (group 1) or without (group 2) pseudoexfoliation (PXF) undergoing cataract surgery. Anterior capsule samples were obtained in all patients and analysed for signs of apoptosis by using special staining...

Dead bag syndrome: a new and rare cause of late IOL dislocation

The dead bag syndrome has recently been described as a cause of late spontaneous intraocular lens (IOL) subluxation and / or dislocation. The capsular bag remains clear years after surgery and then becomes diaphanous and floppy. The authors explanted seven...

Nanofiber-based hydrogels prevent capsular opacification

Lens refilling is the replacement of the lens with a silicone polymer in an otherwise intact lens capsule. However, capsular opacification (CO), resulting in reduced visual acuity, is a major complication of these injectable accommodating lenses. Opacification is due to...

MicroRNAs in cataract

In an ageing population cataract formation is one of the leading causes of blindness. Cataracts are caused by a failure to clear accumulating aggregated proteins in the lens. MicroRNAs are small non-coding transcripts which bind to specific mRNAs acting at...

Impact on the corneal and anterior chamber characteristics after femtosecond laser cataract surgery

Femtosecond laser cataract surgery (FLACS) is being increasingly used in the preparation for cataract surgery. Benefits of circular capsulorrhexis and reduced phacoemulsification energy have been shown in the literature. This study was designed to assess the anterior chamber characteristics and...

Clinical outcomes of a supplementary sulcus IOL

In this retrospective study, the authors examined 31 eyes of 20 patients who had received a supplementary trifocal sulcus IOL in addition to a ‘bag-in-the-lens’ IOL. Implantation of a ‘bag-in-the-lens’ IOL requires the creation of anterior and posterior capsulotomies, followed...

Two bifocals and a trifocal

The authors compare the optical outcomes of two bifocal intraocular lenses (AcrySof ReSTOR +2.50 Diopter [D] add +3.0D add) with a trifocal lens (AT LISA tri 839MP). The optical qualities of the lenses were quantified by measuring the modulation transfer...

An arm and a leg

“It cost me an arm and a leg.” – Mr B told me. An arm and a leg to be seen by the famous Russian eye surgeon who said that everybody can be spectacle-free. He took Mr B’s money (roughly...

Does lower eyelid entropion repair alter corneal topography?

The authors aimed to analyse the corneal morphology before and after advancement of posterior lower eyelid retractors (LERs) alone or in combination with a lateral tarsal strip (LTS) for lower eyelid involutional entropion. Retrospective analysis of 24 consecutive elderly patients...
