Cataract surgery in older women may reduce risk of death, study shows
New study reveals a longer life might be an unexpected benefit of cataract surgery, the most frequently performed operation in the U.S. A large study of women links the eye procedure to a 60 percent lower risk of dying from all causes. Dr. Christopher Starr, an ophthalmologist at Weill Cornell Medical Center, joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss the findings.

To evaluate changes in intraocular pressure (IOP) after surgical correction of spontaneous late in-the-bag intraocular lens (IOL) dislocation.
A 23-year-old man developed unilateral corneal ectasia after bilateral small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE). The preoperative corneal topography was normal, with a minimum corneal thickness of 582 μm and 586 μm in the right eye and left eye, respectively. The refractive correction was −3.00 diopters (D) sphere in the right eye and −3.50 D sphere in the left eye. At the 12-month postoperative visit, corneal topography showed early signs of ectasia in the right eye; the ectasia had det eriorated by the 15-month examination.
e; JL Abstract PURPOSE:: To evaluate the long-term objective and subjective results of a trifocal intraocular lens. METHODS:: Prospective observational study enrolling 24 eyes that underwent uneventful microincisional cataract surgery with bilateral implantation of a diffractive trifocal intraocular lens (FineVision Micro F, PhysIOL, Belgium). After a mean follow-up period of 60 ± 2 months, patients answered the 10-item Near Activity Vision Questionnaire (NAVQ-10) and were assessed for uncorrected and corrected distance, intermediate and near visual acuity, defocus curve, light-dis...
CONCLUSIONS: Visual outcomes within 1.0 diopter of target refraction were achieved in 85% of eyes using the calculation methods listed above. Haigis-L, Barrett True-K (no history), and Scheimpflug TCRP 4 mm (Haigis) and TRP 4 mm (Haigis) methods showed comparably low prediction errors, despite the absence of historical patient information.

Conclusions: Anterior chamber and posterior chamber iris-claw IOL fixations proved equally effective and safe for aphakic correction in eyes with inadequate capsular support. PMID: 30524757 [PubMed]
Authors: Tognetto D, De Giacinto C, Perrotta AA, Candian T, Bova A, Rinaldi S, Turco G Abstract Purpose: To compare the capsule edges ultrastructure obtained by two femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) platforms and manual continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis (CCC) using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Setting: Eye Clinic, University of Trieste, Italy. Design: Experimental comparative study. Methods: 150 anterior capsules were collected and divided into three groups as follows: Group 1 (50 capsules) obtained with manual CCC, Groups 2 and 3 (each with 50 capsules) obtained with the Cat...
Assessment of vision-related quality of life following refractive surgery has become increasingly important. This prospective cohort study aims to evaluate functional vision and quality of life outcomes after bilateral wavefront-guided (WFG) LASIK surgery.
To assess the efficacy and safety of an innovative selective-laser device (CAPSULaser ®, EXCEL-LENS, Inc., California, USA) for the creation of anterior capsulotomies during cataract surgery when compared to manual capsulotomies.
To create a highly balanced comparison of ab interno trabeculectomy (Trabectome, AIT) and trabecular bypass stenting (iStent, TBS).
