Visual Outcomes and Refractive Status after Combined Silicone Oil Removal/Cataract Surgery with Intraocular Lens Implantation.

Conclusion: A combined silicone oil removal/cataract surgery with IOL implantation procedure restored functional vision in approximately one-third of cases. However, nearly half of patients were under-corrected. Unfortunately, we did not identify any factors that predicted surgical success. PMID: 29403584 [PubMed]

This study had for its objective to evaluate the functional results and follow-up of patients undergoing the new technique compared with quality standards of cataract surgery according to the World Health Organization. This study was carried out by retrospective analysis of records and operative reports of patients over twenty years of age undergoing manual small incision cataract surgery from June 2012 to June 2015. Out of a total of 1292 patients undergoing cataract surgery in the five districts covered by the project during the same period, 1003 patients met the inclusion criteria (77.63 %). Among th...

Abstract Cataracts are one of the most prevalent diseases of the lens, affecting its transparency and are the leading cause of reversible blindness in the world. The clarity of the lens is essential for its normal physiological function of refracting light onto the retina. Currently there is no pharmaceutical treatment for prevention or cure of cataracts and surgery to replace the affected lens remains the gold standard in the management of cataracts. Pharmacological treatment for prevention of cataracts is hindered by many physiological barriers that must be overcome by a therapeutic agent to reach the avascular ...

ConclusionsConcentrations of LCN2 in aqueous humor are increased in CRVO. LCN2 may be part of a pro-catabolic phenotype, and it may play an important role in the dreaded complications of CRVO, such as macular edema, macular ischemia, and neovascularization, which lead to blindness.

Abstract Here, we present, to the best of our knowledge, the first case of Werner syndrome with corneal blindness due to bilateral primary bullous keratopathy. Werner syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by features of premature aging, insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis, atherosclerosis, hypergonadotrophic hypogonadism, hypertriglyceridemia, scleroderma-like skin changes, and sarcomas. Among ocular manifestations, cataracts, cystoid macular edema, and retinal detachment have been reported. Because these patients show features of premature aging, they have decreased corneal e...

ConclusionEvery year, around New Year's Eve 30–45 victims were referred to the Rotterdam Eye Hospital; 50% sustained moderate‐to‐severe trauma. In severe firework injuries, patients required multiple treatments that may not prevent permanent blindness and/or functional/cosmetic disfigurement. The majority was bystander and younger than 18 years.
