Aspheric toric IOL implantation and LRI in eyes with cataracts and astigmatism

This is a prospective study from a single unit to compare the visual outcome of aspheric toric intraocular lens (IOL) implantation and limbal relaxing incisions (LRI) for management of coexisting age-related cataracts and astigmatism. Sixty eyes of 60 patients with...

The vitreoretinal priesthood

When I first started doing cataract lists, the consultant at the time, a Mr Brown from Carmarthen, used to say that phacoemulsification was more akin to flying a jet fighter for short dangerous bombing runs than a boring long haul...

Acute uveitis from late migration of soft lens matter 10 years post cataract surgery

A 58-year-old Caucasian male presented to the emergency eye clinic with a two-day history of a painful, red left eye and blurred vision. His past ocular history included uncomplicated left phacoemulsification cataract surgery in 2010 and left retinal detachment repair...

The results of the last survey Jun22

Thank you once more for your time in answering the latest survey. The first question relates to the number of staff required for a routine cataract list. There was a big variance in practice. Some of us are luckier than...

Clinical evaluation of a multifocal aspheric diffractive intraocular lens

This is a multi-centre prospective study involving five different centres in Europe including 52 patients with cataract. The average age was 68.5±10.5 years, 35 females were bilateral implanted with aspheric diffractive multifocal lens implantation of the Tecnis 1-Piece multifocal intraocular...

SARCS 2019 Deep Dive Phaco Fundamentals - Trainee Day

By Emily Proudfoot, Optometrist, Vision Surgery & Research Centre, Hull. As somewhat of an appetizer for the conference the following day, in Hull University this year was held a different meeting. A dissection of all things phaco, hosted by two...

Nasolacrimal duct screening to minimise post cataract endophthalmitis

This case control study compared the nasolacrimal duct (NLD) patency in a random sample of phacoemulsification cataract surgery patients (control group) versus a consecutive series of patients who developed endophthalmitis post cataract surgery (case group). NLD syringing was performed in...

Pentacam vs. IOL Master keratometry measurement in IOL power calculations

The IOL Master measures only the anterior corneal curvature and estimates the total corneal power by assuming a fixed relationship between the anterior and posterior corneal surface. The Pentacam measures both the anterior and posterior corneal surface and therefore calculates...

Liquid adhesive bandage for clear corneal cataract incisions

This paper reports a prospective randomised controlled trial of patients undergoing routine phacoemulsification with a 2.75mm clear corneal incision and followed up for 14 days postoperatively. They evaluated wound edge closure, surgically induced astigmatism and foreign body sensation after use...

Corneal biomechanics and refractive outcomes after cataract surgery

The authors aimed to study a range of corneal properties and correlate them with refractive outcomes after phacoemulsification. Outcomes were reviewed in a fairly small group of 40 patients (including only right eyes) operated by two surgeons using clear corneal...

Intraocular pressure reduction after cataract surgery

Several studies have shown the efficacy of cataract surgery in lowering intraocular pressure (IOP), especially in angle closure glaucoma compared to open angle. A total of 156 eyes of 109 patients (without glaucoma or with medically controlled glaucoma) were included....

Comparison of changes in ECD and CCT between CPS and FLACS

This is an intraindividual randomised clinical trial of 134 eyes from 67 patients, one eye was treated with femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) (including pretreatment of main incision, side port, capsulotomy and lens fragmentation) and the fellow eye received conventional...
