Optimizing preoperative requirements for outpatient cataract surgery at the Royal Alexandra Hospital.
CONCLUSIONS: Based on the literature, best practice guidelines, and a cost analysis, it was decided that patients undergoing routine cataract surgery in Edmonton Zone Hospitals under regional anaesthesia would no longer require physician history and physicals and ECGs. Elimination of the preoperative requirements for all but select high-risk patients meant that 100% of patients who arrived for cataract surgery would not have outstanding presurgery requirements.

Conclusion: Combined phacovitrectomy for concurrent cataract epiretinal membrane by experienced cataract and vitreoretinal surgeons seems to deliver as predictable refractive results as cataract surgery alone.
AIM: To estimate the health gain, health system costs and cost-effectiveness of cataract surgery when expedited as a falls prevention strategy (reducing the waiting time for surgery by 12 months) and as a routine procedure. METHODS: An established ...
To report the long-term clinical outcomes including efficacy and safety after intraocular collamer lens (ICL) implantation for myopia.
To compare the error in intraocular lens toric alignment of two toric markers: the Barrett dual axis toric marker and the Mendez gauge.
This study characterized subjective long-term quality of vision after Small Incision Lenticule Extraction and identified preoperative and postoperative parameters that convey increased risk for experiencing visual disturbances.
To validate the accuracy of the SToP formula for calculating the intraocular lens (IOL) power from measurements obtained by a rotating Scheimpflug camera (Pentacam) in eyes with previous myopic excimer laser surgery.
To evaluate surgically induced astigmatism of temporal clear corneal incisions (CCIs) on anterior and posterior corneal curvature after femtosecond laser-assisted lens surgery using Scheimpflug tomographic measurements.
Mathematically derived graphs of antibacterial efficacy of intracameral moxifloxacin, cefuroxime and vancomycin were created, applicable to local prophylactic antibiotic selection and agreeing with available objective evidence.
We report 2 cases of COL4A1 mutations that presented with congenital cataracts and porencephaly. Both patients had posterior cortical cataracts and radiographically defined bilateral posterior lenticonus. Considering the long-term clinical implications of these mutations, posterior cortical cataracts, bilateral posterior lenticonus, and porencephaly should raise clinical suspicion for COL4A1 mutations.
