Conclusion:Nd:YAG posterior capsulotomy, and in some cases anterior capsulotomy, is accepted as a standard and effective CBDS treatment. Surgical approach could be beneficial in cases suspected of Propionibacterium acnes presence or when it is impossible to perform Nd:YAG posterior capsulotomy.

I read with interest the article by Borkar and associates1 on “Incidence of management changes at the postoperative week 1 visit after cataract surgery: results from the Perioperative Care for IntraOcular Lens Study”. Borkar and associates1 have concluded that the unexpected management changes at the 1-week postoperative period after the cataract surgery a re seen in 0.9% of asymptomatic patients who have had uncomplicated cataract surgery and a routine day 1 postoperative examination. Therefore, postoperative week 1 examinations could potentially be performed on an as-needed basis in the appropriate subgroup of patients.

The uveitis of cataract surgery has recently been studied by Reddy and colleagues.1 They report that the uveitis is typically of a longer duration in African Americans than in whites. It is also stated that any anterior uveitis that persists “may not be detrimental to long-term visual outcomes.”

Authors: Alcubierre R, Sanchez-Dalmau BF, Mousavi K Abstract A 58 year-old woman presented with severe chemosis and ophthalmoparesis on her left eye 8hours after uncomplicated cataract surgery under sub-tenon anaesthesia. Recovery of extrinsic motility was observed after corticosteroid and antihistamine treatment, but a non-haemorrhagic papillary oedema and a concentric defect of visual field were found. It progressed to papillary atrophy with preserved central vision, but with a significant visual field constriction. The aetiological study revealed an allergy to hyaluronidase that was used as adjuvant to the anaes...

Authors: Beato JN, Reis D, Esteves-Leandro J, Falcão M, Rosas V, Carneiro Â, Falcão Reis F Abstract Purpose: To compare intraocular pressure (IOP) and anterior segment (AS) morphometry changes after uneventful phacoemulsification between nonglaucomatous eyes with open-angles from patients with and without type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) and determine which factors may predict greater IOP-lowering effect. Methods: Forty-five diabetic (45 eyes) and 44 (44 eyes) age- and sex-matched non-DM patients with age-related cataract were enrolled in this prospective observational study. Goldmann applanati...

LncRNA FEZF1-AS1 Promotes TGF-β2-Mediated Proliferation and Migration in Human Lens Epithelial Cells SRA01/04. J Ophthalmol. 2019;2019:4736203 Authors: Wang Y, Chen L, Gu Y, Wang Y, Yuan Y, Zhu Q, Bi M, Gu S Abstract Posterior capsule opacification (PCO) is a common complication after cataract surgery attributed to the proliferation and migration of postoperative residual lens epithelial cells (LECs). The long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) FEZ family zinc finger 1 antisense RNA 1 (FEZF1-AS1) promotes the proliferation and migration of multiple types of cancer cells. Here, we discovered that FEZF1-AS1 is ...
