Refractive changes after surgery

A long-term follow-up study was conducted to report power vector analysis of refractive astigmatic changes in a large group of 137 patients (250 eyes) undergoing horizontal strabismus surgery. Fifty-four percent were male. The average age was 9.22±8.21 years. Fifty-five percent...

Errors in refractive surgery

A retrospective case series looking at sources of errors in patients undergoing laser refractive surgery. Twenty-two cases of error were identified in 18 patients; 15 were unilateral, three bilateral and two errors occurred in the same eye (on attempting correction...

Refractive surgery for anisometropic amblyopia

The authors report the outcomes of refractive surgery with phakic intraocular lens (PIOL) implant for management of anisometropic amblyopia in children intolerant to conventional therapy. This was a retrospective study of 71 eyes of 71 patients of which 58 were...

Capsular tension rings to reduce refractive shift

The study group aimed to determine whether the use of a capsular tension ring (CTR) can increase refractive stability in patients with implantation of two different trifocal intraocular lenses. This was a prospective, consecutive series of eyes which underwent refractive...

Corneal molecular and cellular biology for refractive surgeon

This multicentre, retrospective, interventional case series assesses the outcomes of laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) in 113 patients taking isotretinoin between January 2003 and September 2017. Isotretinoin is contraindicated for LASIK and PRK and patients are...

Preterm birth and refractive error in an Indian infant population

This study was undertaken to identify and compare the changes in refractive outcome in infants with and without retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), to inform incidence of refractive error. This was a prospective study of 300 consecutive premature infants with birth...
