Anterior capsular tears complicating phacoemulsification surgery

This is a retrospective, interventional case series, assessing the occurrence of anterior capsular tears in phacoemulsification surgery, its effect on outcomes and further complications. Despite being a well recognised complication of phacoemulsification surgery the authors felt that there is a...

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...

Effect of phacoemulsification on facility of outflow

This is a prospective study to examine the change in electronic Schotz tonographic outflow (TOF) and IOP measurements after phacoemulsification. Intraocular pressure was measured using Goldman‘s applanation tonography (GAT). Data were collected at baseline, three, six and 12 months postoperatively....

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...

Effects of phacoemulsification on IOP and drug use in glaucoma

For patients with comorbid cataract and primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), guidance is lacking as to whether cataract extraction and traditional filtering surgery should be performed as a staged or combined procedure. Achieving this guidance requires an evidence-based understanding of the...

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...

Cost-effectiveness of femtosecond cataract surgery

Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery has become increasingly popular due to the reported benefits of increasing precision and reproducibility of capsulorrhexis, less power and manipulation required during phacoemulsification, better corneal wound architecture, and the ability to place precise arcuate keratotomy incisions...

Effect of phacoemulsification on trabeculectomy function

Previous studies have reported cataract surgery post trabeculectomy to be detrimental to IOP control. Conversely, other studies have reported phacoemulsification performed before trabeculectomy as a factor for bleb failure. The objective of this retrospective case control study was to evaluate...

Phaco-ECP vs. Phaco alone to treat glaucoma

This retrospective review compared combined phacoemulsification and endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (phaco-ECP) to phaco alone in patients with mild to moderate glaucoma. Outcome measures included cumulative full and qualified success survival, postintervention IOP and ocular anti-hypertensive medication reduction. Full success was defined...

Microdroplet and splatter contamination during phacoemulsification in COVID-19 era

Half a millilitre of fluorescein was incorporated into 400ml of balanced salt solution to identify microdroplet and splatter from phacoemulsification to simulate possible COVID-19 contamination. Five porcine eyes were mounted to an ophthalmic mannequin head and two surgeons (height 189cm,...

OVD influences

This prospective case series provides data on a previously uninvestigated area. Eyes due to have routine phakoemulsification were divided into six groups according to ophthalmic viscosurgical device (OVD) type. After cataract extraction aphasic refraction using intraoperative aberrometry with the ocular...

Phacoemulsification Cataract Surgery

The book, through a ‘rear-ended’ approach to training, covers basic and fundamental skills for the novice ophthalmic surgeon embarking on phacoemulsification cataract surgery. As the preface states, this is a ‘key surgical technique for an ophthalmologist to learn’. However, achieving...
