Incidence of Cystoid Macular Edema After Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty
Conclusions: Although CME frequently occurred after DMEK, no CME risk factors were identified. In addition, CME did not significantly affect long-term visual outcomes when it was appropriately treated.
The objectives of this study was to address the relationship between breastfeeding and maternal age-related cataract.

CONCLUSIONS: Ophthalmologists indeed are willing to undergo corrective refractive procedures. There is an approximately 50-50 divide on whether or not they would undergo LRS. Slightly less than half of ophthalmologists would personally undergo lenticular surgery, which includes cataract refractive surgery and FLACS. PMID: 29784166 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: Stereoscopic footage of operations performed under the surgical microscope may be captured and viewed using inexpensive equipment and simple procedures requiring minimal prior expertise. The techniques described in this paper may enable more training programs to capture and distribute 3D footage of their operations, enhancing the educational value of ophthalmic surgical videos.

The technique, feasibility, and results of a new 25-gauge trocar –anterior chamber maintainer (ACM) designed for maintaining intraoperative fluid infusion is described in this prospective interventional analysis. The 25-gauge trocar–ACM with an overall length of the trocar blade of 6.0 mm, cannula length of 4.0 mm, and the cannula tip beveled at 45 degrees to the base was designed and used in all the cases. The dimensions of the sclerotomy wound that comprised of the internal ostium, external ostium, wound length, and the time interval for wound apposition in the postoperative period was analyzed by s...
To evaluates analgesic effectiveness of 0.1% nepafenac during cataract surgery.
Conclusion: This is the first report to show that 25 MHzB can be used to clearly visualize the status of the PC in PPC. These results, in turn, could be used to select the appropriate treatment and to thereby avoid further complications during PPC surgery. PMID: 29785304 [PubMed]
