Authors: Zhu HC, Tao Y, Li YM Abstract OBJECTIVE: The study aimed to investigate the correlations of insulin resistance and hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) with cytokines [insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) and interleukin-6 (IL-6)] in the aqueous humor of patients with diabetic cataract. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 59 patients with diabetic cataract and 58 patients with simple cataract treated in Jining No. 1 People´s Hospital (Jining, China) from January 2017 to February 2018, were selected randomly. The levels of homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) and...

AbstractTo evaluate the required cumulative dissipated energy (CDE) to fragment the crystalline lens in femtosecond laser –assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) in relation to lens density and lens thickness. Consecutive eyes that underwent FLACS between September 2014 and March 2017 by a single surgeon using in all cases the same femtosecond laser and phacoemulsification platform were included in our retrospective study . Prior to surgery, corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA), optical biometry corneal, and crystalline lens tomographies were performed to assess anterior chamber depth (ACD), axial length (AL), and crys...

The Glaucous Gull (Larus hyperboreus) is the world’s second largest gull (largest is the Great Black-backed Gull (Larus marinus). It breeds in The Arctic but we do see them further south. My photograph is of a first winter youngster, juvenile gull. It is feeding on seal blubber on the beach way East of the beach carpark at Cley-next-the-Sea in North Norfolk (we saw a few dead seals on the beach on this visit perhaps battered in yesterday’s high winds and rough seas). The word “glaucous” is descriptive of the adult bird’s colour. It simply means “dull bluish-green, gray,” but someh...

Authors: Lau CSL, Chan JCW, So SF, Chan OCC, Li KKW Abstract Purpose: To compare the surgical outcome of combined phacoemulsification and endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (phacoECP) versus combined phacoemulsification and mitomycin C-augmented trabeculectomy (phacoTbx) in patients with coexisting glaucoma and visually significant cataract. Methods: A retrospective review of 89 eyes of 89 patients who received phacoECP (N=49) and phacoTbx (N=40) was carried out at a tertiary eye center in Hong Kong. The minimum follow-up period was 6 months. Criterion of success was reduction of IOP at least 30% or absolute IOP ...
