Patients’ perspective over quality of care and cataract surgery

This study analyses the factors of perceived quality of care among patients undergoing cataract surgery. A questionnaire was designed to assess the patients’ views about the quality of care using QUOTE (Quality of Care through the Patient’s Eyes), which assessed...

Health-related quality of life after cataract surgery

This prospective study evaluates the impact of cataract surgery on subjects’ health-related quality of life (HRQoL) measured with a 15-dimension generic instrument, the 15D. The HRQoL of cataract subjects was compared with that of an age- and gender-standardised sample of...

IOL power calculation accuracy in childhood cataract surgery

Refractive outcomes in eyes after vitrectomy vary as the timing of cataract surgery may influence the outcome when done as staged surgery after vitreoretinal (VR) surgery or at the same time as VR surgery. The authors aimed to determine the...

Endoscopic Surgery of the Orbit: Anatomy, Pathology, and Management

Endoscopic surgery still remains a challenge for many oculoplastic surgeons, whose main scope of work has traditionally been open surgery. The learning curve for endoscopic surgery is quite steep and this approach requires skills that needs to be well trained,...

Glaucoma diagnosis after paediatric cataract surgery

The authors undertook a retrospective review of patients with glaucoma after congenital cataract surgery and report clinical presentation, treatment and long-term outcomes at a tertiary referral centre. The study included 58 eyes of 42 patients of which 59% were male....

Is it worth performing cataract surgery in amblyopic eyes?

It was estimated that about 3% of all cataract surgeries in adults were performed in eyes that have pre-existing amblyopia, and there is a long-standing belief that eyes with amblyopia have limited benefit from cataract extraction in the adult age....

Success rates of primary and revision transcanalicular DCR surgery

Transcanalicular laser DCR is a relatively rare procedure compared to more conventional external or endo-nasal techniques. In this article the authors examine the outcomes of revision surgery following failed transcanalicular diode laser dacryocystorhinostomy (TCDL DCR), comparing a conventional external revision...

Anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy post cataract surgery

This retrospective population-based cohort study assessed whether there was an increased incidence of anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (AION) post cataract surgery compared to patients that had not had cataract surgery. They reviewed the notes of all patients diagnosed with AION...

Aberration measurements with manual or FLA cataract surgery

This study group compared the higher order aberrations (HOAs) between femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) and manual cataract surgery. Consecutive patients undergoing FLACS or manual cataract surgery with implantation of an intraocular lens from January 2017 to February 2018 were...

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...

Biomechanical stabilisation of ocular measurements post cataract surgery

This prospective study looks into the time duration of biomechanical stabilisation post uneventful cataract surgery in a case series of 62 consecutive eyes in patients with no ocular or systemic comorbidity. The patients were followed-up at fixed intervals of one...

Visual acuity after cataract surgery in AMD patients

The data from this study are obtained from the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) 2 and analysed to evaluate if cataract surgery benefits patients with concurrent age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The AREDS 2 was a five year, prospective, multi-centre randomised...
