Lenses that transition in sunlight to become sunglasses help protect eyes from dust, bugs, drying breezes and, most important of all, the damaging effects of ultraviolet light.
“In my case, symptoms began to appear when I was only 57. In fact, the doctors believe early-onset Alzheimer’s has a strong genetic predictor, and that it may have been progressing for some years before I was diagnosed.” – Pat Summitt Anyone who’s gone through the experience of a loved one developing Alzheimer’s disease and progressively deteriorating to a shell of their former selves knows how devastating this brain disease is for both patient and those who love and care for him or her. Memory Performance Changes May Show Up in 20s with Family History of Alzheimer’s St...
Conclusion:Nd:YAG posterior capsulotomy, and in some cases anterior capsulotomy, is accepted as a standard and effective CBDS treatment. Surgical approach could be beneficial in cases suspected of Propionibacterium acnes presence or when it is impossible to perform Nd:YAG posterior capsulotomy.

I read with interest the article by Borkar and associates1 on “Incidence of management changes at the postoperative week 1 visit after cataract surgery: results from the Perioperative Care for IntraOcular Lens Study”. Borkar and associates1 have concluded that the unexpected management changes at the 1-week postoperative period after the cataract surgery a re seen in 0.9% of asymptomatic patients who have had uncomplicated cataract surgery and a routine day 1 postoperative examination. Therefore, postoperative week 1 examinations could potentially be performed on an as-needed basis in the appropriate subgroup of patients.
The uveitis of cataract surgery has recently been studied by Reddy and colleagues.1 They report that the uveitis is typically of a longer duration in African Americans than in whites. It is also stated that any anterior uveitis that persists “may not be detrimental to long-term visual outcomes.”
The effect of cataract surgery on IOP in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is a subject of debate. We investigated the effect of cataract surgery by phacoemulsification on intraocular pressure (...
The study shown that IOL stabilization after Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy was superior in procedures done with FSL-assisted capsulotomy compared to manual capsulorhexis.
Acrylic IOLs loaded with moxifloxacin release the drug in a controlled way, leading to therapeutic levels in the aqueous humour during at least 1 week, without any hazardous biological issues.
Authors: Alcubierre R, Sanchez-Dalmau BF, Mousavi K Abstract A 58 year-old woman presented with severe chemosis and ophthalmoparesis on her left eye 8hours after uncomplicated cataract surgery under sub-tenon anaesthesia. Recovery of extrinsic motility was observed after corticosteroid and antihistamine treatment, but a non-haemorrhagic papillary oedema and a concentric defect of visual field were found. It progressed to papillary atrophy with preserved central vision, but with a significant visual field constriction. The aetiological study revealed an allergy to hyaluronidase that was used as adjuvant to the anaes...
