Authors: El Ameen A, Majzoub S, Vandermeer G, Pisella PJ Abstract PURPOSE: To evaluate the influence of cataract surgery on Meibomian gland dysfunction, in particular on postoperative functional symptoms. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Thirty patients who underwent cataract surgery were included in the study. A clinical examination (OSDI questionnaire, measurement of tear break-up time (TBUT), corneal staining, Meibomian gland expression test) and a paraclinical evaluation (Meibomian gland loss [MGL] measured using ImageJ on Meibography, conjunctival hyperemia and non-invasive keratograph break-up time [NIK-BUT]) were p...
Conclusion: The development of vitreous and retinal metastases despite a systemic response to ipilimumab identifies the challenge of immunotherapy in an immune privileged site. Treatment is challenging, and outcomes are variable. A local approach of bilateral pars plana vitrectomy, external beam radiotherapy, and subsequent bilateral cataract surgery provided an excellent visual result with no recurrence at 12 months.
Conclusion: Teaching of many clinical skills had improved over decades. Cataract surgery training has shifted from ICCE and ECCE to SICS and Phaco, but other surgeries were still taught sparingly. There was an enormous variation across the country in residency training which needs immediate attention.
Conclusion: The wet-laboratory training is an effective method of improving the skills of the ophthalmology residents in MSICS. The reduction of complications will improve the quality of surgery and improve the postoperative visual outcome.
