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....

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...

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...

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...

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...

SS-OCT assessment of ITC after phacoemulsification

This is a multicentre randomised controlled trial of 22 patients with primary angle closure glaucoma with peripheral anterior synechia and peripheral primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG) with peripheral anterior synechia (PAS) detected by indentation gonioscopy was randomised into two groups....

Prophylaxis for clinical macular oedema after phacoemulsification

The authors report on a retrospective cohort study looking at three different prophylaxis methods for macular oedema after cataract surgery: 1) Topical prednisolone acetate (PA) alone; 2) Topical PA in combination with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID); 3) Intraoperative subconjunctival injection...

Practical phacodynamics – making the most of your phacoemulsification machine

Understanding phacodynamics is appreciating the subtleties in the dynamic changes of the fluidics and the ultrasonic power delivered. Kristina Southcott explains. Increase my vacuum! Increase my bottle height! Increase my phaco power! I frequently observe the above commands being directed...

Comparison of ketorolac 0.4% and nepafenac 0.1% for the prevention of CMO after phacoemulsification

This is a prospective randomised clinical trial study including patients older than 40 years with age related cataract and normal ophthalmic examination. The patients are randomised into three different groups and the objective of the study is to compare the...

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...

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...
