Effects of Discharge Education and Telephone Follow-up on Cataract Patients' Activities According to the Model of Living
Assess the impact of planned discharge education and telephone follow-up of patients who underwent cataract surgery on daily living activities.
Researchers in Australia used a driving simulator to evaluate patients'vision before and after cataract surgery. The results were impressive: Near-misses and crashes dropped by as much as 48% after surgery.
Several trusts have taken action after recording high rates of complications for cataract surgery, while others have disputed the figures, an HSJ investigation has found.
CONCLUSIONS: Today, an increasing number of eyes that underwent refractive surgery previously are facing cataract surgery. Maybe even more important than adequate biometry of the human eye will be using appropriate calculation schemes in order to enhance post-cataract refractive outcomes or predictability.

ConclusionsA single quadrant hydrodissection is sufficient for the efficient removal of nucleus and cortex.

Credit: Naimul Haq/IPS By External SourceGENEVA, Oct 8 2019 (IPS) A staggering 2.2 billion people already suffer from eye conditions and visual impairment today, but the global need for eye care is set to increase “dramatically”, with lack of exercise a key factor, the UN health agency said on Tuesday, unveiling its first ever report on vision across the world. While welcoming recent successes in eliminating common conditions such as trachoma in eight countries, the World Health Organization (WHO) highlighted evidence indicating ...
CONCLUSIONS: Though malignant glaucoma is highly refractory to treatment, appropriate management in the form of medical or vitrectomy-hyaloidotomy-zonulectomy-iridotomy could achieve 90% success in this series. PMID: 31587568 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Phacoemulsification and IOL implantation may aid in managing pseudoexfoliation glaucoma by lowering IOP and slowing the rate of GCC and pRNFL losses over a short-term period. PMID: 31583129 [PubMed]
CONCLUSIONS: Disordered probability thresholds, poor question-model fit and correlation with visual acuity changes indicate the current IoL questionnaire is poorly suited for assessment of VRQoL. In contrast, the Catquest-9SF demonstrated credible results for assessment of VRQoL in New Zealand. PMID: 31581180 [PubMed - in process]
