Authors: Shi C, Yuan J, Zee B Abstract Background: Phacoemulsification under local anesthesia is regarded as the major surgery for cataract treatment. Recent research has compared the pain perception between the first eye and the second eye during phacoemulsification. However, these studies have also yielded controversial findings. Consequently, we performed a systematic review and a meta-analysis to investigate the difference in the pain perception between the first and second eyes during phacoemulsification. Method: We searched the PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane CENTRAL databases for the studies published up to...

Abstract Free radicals generated due to exposure of radiation, environmental pollutants and as by-products of metabolised drugs. These free radicals are antagonized by molecules which are antioxidant in nature. Antioxidants are the substances which inhibit oxidation. They are moreover acknowledged as "free radical scavengers" as they form minor reactive species via radicals. Based on origin, they are categorised into two types: exogenous and endogenous antioxidants. An Antioxidant reduces the occurrence of different disorders like: aging, cancer, diabetes, inflammation, liver disease, cardiovascular dise...

This study investigated the effect of emotional stability (ES) on insomnia through anxiety in preoperative patients with cataracts. Fifty-four subjects completed a self-questionnaire that included the Insomnia Severity Index (ISI), the International Personality Item Pool (IPIP) for ES, and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression scale (HADS). Pathway analysis was performed to analyze the mediating effects of ES, the anxiety subscale scores of the HADS, and the ISI scores. The low-ES group exhibited an insomnia severity that was significantly higher than that of the high-ES group (p=0.048). According to the pathway analysis, th...

This retrospective study investigated the effect of nursing intervention (NIV) in Chinese patients under preoperative cataract (PC). A total of 70 eligible patients with PC were included. Thirty-five patients in an intervention group received regular clinical treatment and NIV before the surgery, while the other 35 patients received regular clinical treatment only. The NIV was applied 4 sessions, 1 week before the surgery. The primary outcome of satisfaction was measured by 11-points visual analog scale. The secondary outcomes were measured by the functional impairment caused by cataract (the VF-14), cooperativeness during...
