Abstract The lens capsule, a thin specialized basement membrane that encloses the crystalline lens, is essential for both the structural and biomechanical integrity of the lens. Knowing the mechanical properties of the lens capsule is important for understanding its physiological functioning, role in accommodation, age-related changes, and for providing a better treatment of a cataract. In this review, we have described the techniques used for the lens capsule biomechanical testing on the macro- and microscale and summarized the current knowledge about its mechanical properties.

Planta Med DOI: 10.1055/a-1109-3405 Ginkgo biloba (GB) is one of the most widely used phytotherapeutic products in the world, and its extract has beneficial properties for the treatment of several pathologies, such as diabetic cardiomyopathy, neurodegenerative diseases, cataracts, hearing loss, myocardial lesion, hippocampus neuronal lesions, morphometry testicular changes, and liver damage. This review aims to investigate the effects of GB on diseases related to oxidative stress. Databases such as MEDLINE/PUBMED and EMBASE were consulted, and PRISMA guidelines were used to build the review. This plant has antioxidant p...
ConclusionThe 1-year postoperative results suggest that P-ExPRESS is as effective as P-Trab, with fewer complications.
ConclusionAbout one-tenth of individuals seeking eye care in India have pterygium in at least one eye. It rarely impacts vision, is commonly unilateral and nasal and usually does not require surgery. It is associated with increasing age, females, outdoor work, low income and geographical location closer to the equator.
CONCLUSION: This study showed that the gonioscopy-assisted transluminal trabeculotomy procedure is an effective and minimally invasive form of glaucoma surgery. Its effect was related to intraoperative blood in Schlemm's canal. PMID: 32090607 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: This is the first case series of toxic posterior segment syndrome occurring secondary to intracameral compounded triamcinolone-moxifloxacin in dropless cataract surgery. The FDA has attributed the toxicity to abnormally high levels of the binding agent poloxamer 407 in the compounded medication. Clinicians should be aware of this phenomenon and exhibit caution when using compounded medications.
In this study, we report on successful in vivo measurements of intraocular pressure in rabbits using an optical IOP measurement system. The sensor was implanted during cataract surgery in two New Zealand white (NZW) rabbits and tested in vivo for ten weeks. Prior to implantation, the sensors were characterized in vitro in the physiologically relevant pressure range of 0–60 mmHg. A portable wireless handheld reader consisting of an internal beam splitter, a monochromatic light source, and a digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera was also designed and implemented to capture interference patterns from the sensor. The ...
