Authors: Li L, Wang Y, Xue C Abstract Purpose: As a secondary analysis, we reassess the association of initial congenital cataract surgery times, compliance to amblyopia therapy, and visual outcomes for a long-term follow-up in a secondary IOL implantation. Methods: Retrospective review of records of all infants with congenital cataracts who underwent secondary IOL implantation in the Eye and ENT Hospital of Fudan University from January 1, 2001, to December 31, 2007, and the minimum follow-up period was 5 years. Multiple regression analysis was used and the possible confounding factors were also analyzed to as...

(University of Delaware) A team led by a University of Delaware researcher has identified the protein essential for eye lens development and clear vision. Without the protein, eyes will form cataracts; with it, lens cells are cleared and ready to see. The work is providing fundamental new knowledge on the basic underlying mechanisms involved in eye development.

Are they primarily seen as primary care eye doctors or as referrals for cataract surgery consultation as well as lasers, chalazions, etc in markets where optometrists are not allowed to do those procedures?

I describe an intraoperative method for the consistent anchoring of the intraocular lens (IOL) and cataract surgery and on the patient's visual axis using coaxial microscope optics, surgeon-guided patient fixation, the precision pulse capsulotomy (PPC) device (Zepto) and utilizing the first (and fourth) Purkinje images. During surgery using a microscope with coaxial lights and optics, the patient is instructed to fixate on a given microscope light while the surgeon looks through the corresponding coaxial eyepiece.
