Outcomes for strabismus surgery dependent on access to insurance

The primary aim of this study was to compare postoperative outcomes in a larger cohort of paediatric patients having strabismus surgery with at least 11 months follow-up to determine the impact of low socio-economic status (SES) and health disparities and...

Cystoid macular oedema following cataract surgery

This review covers the history, incidence, diagnosis, risk factors, pathophysiology and medical management of postoperative macular oedema (PCMO), with a particular emphasis on key contemporary studies and novel observations. The authors revisit the incidence of well-established risk factors including intraoperative...

Exciting opportunities for ophthalmic surgeons with the UK and Europe’s leading provider of cataract surgery, lens replacement surgery and laser eye surgery.

We have opportunities across the UK and Ireland for ophthalmic surgeons to treat private pay, PMI and NHS funded patients.

Improved suppression after surgery for intermittent exotropia

This study aimed to investigate the clinical factors associated with the recovery from suppression, with successful postoperative target motor alignment in 237 patients with intermittent exotropia. Mean age at surgery was 8.2 ±3.2 years and 48.5% were male. Preoperative angle...

Esotropia Duane’s syndrome (DRS) surgery

The authors aimed to compare the safety and efficacy of augmented superior rectus transposition surgery with / without medial rectus (MR) recession versus MR recession along in the treatment of esotropic DRS. This was a prospective randomised trial of 20...

RCT of operative routes for congenital cataract surgery

The authors evaluated the performance of 25G vitrectomy systems in the management of congenital cataract in infants through two routes – anterior (transcorneal) and posterior (pars plana). This was a prospective randomised trial (RCT) of 24 eyes of 12 patients...

Slanted MR surgery for convergence excess ET

The authors aimed to evaluate the surgical outcomes of bilateral slanted recessions of the medial rectus (MR) muscles in patients with convergence excess esotropia (ET). This retrospective study included 16 patients with a mean age at surgery of 5.6 ±3.05...

Defining of a successful surgery for different types of strabismus

The authors present the results of a Delphi study, following on from their previous work which defined successful general outcomes for strabismus surgery. This study aimed to define success outcomes for specific types of strabismus. Twenty-five experts were involved in...

Outcomes of cataract surgery in eyes with weak zonules

Pseudoexfoliation (PEX) and zonular weakness have long been known to increase the risk of complication of cataract surgery. This retrospective study looks at the results of phacoemulsion and intraocular implantation in 295 eyes with pseudoexfoliation and zonular weakness, with a...

Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery – A Practical Guide

The treatment of patients with mild to moderate glaucoma has evolved rapidly in the last decade. Traditionally, medical and laser treatments were the mainstay of therapy for this group of patients. Trabeculectomy, non-penetrating surgery and glaucoma drainage implants were reserved...

Contrast sensitivity after laser corneal surgery

This study group compared contrast sensitivity among participants undergoing wavefront-guided or wavefront-optimised photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) or laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) for the treatment of myopia or myopic astigmatism 12 months after surgery. This was a prospective, randomised clinical trial,...

Using fusion measures to guide strabismus surgery

In this study the authors targeted patients with non-accommodative decompensating distance esotropia with investigation of prior binocular single vision. Choice of target angle was based on the individual’s fusional amplitudes. The target angle aimed to be less than the distance...
