Welcome to our Eye News Survey. If you could please complete and submit your answers by Sunday 28 February 2021, as we print the results in the next issue of Eye News Magazine.
Questions 1 - 4
Questions 2 - 4 have various answer options, however the initial questions are long, so please refer to them here and then answer the question below.
Question 2. You are giving an opinion on a patient. The patient was “routine” first eye procedure and had no special features of concern. The cataract was documented as “NS+”. The cornea was documented as “normal”. They underwent “routine” cataract surgery with no documented issues or complications and developed corneal oedema postoperatively which failed to settle. A cohesive viscoelastic was used.
Question 3. You are offering an opinion on the same patient as described in question 2, but this time it is the second eye and the first eye was completed without problem by another surgeon and achieved excellent vision.
Question 4. You are offering an opinion on the same patient as described in question 2, but this time you examine the unoperated other eye and find significant guttatae consistent with a diagnosis of Fuchs endothelial dystrophy. You question the operating surgeon and they do not examine their patients preoperatively and did not suspect there was a corneal problem.
