AbstractPurposeThe outcome of XEN implantation in Chinese eyes has not been previously reported. The purpose of our study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of combined cataract surgery and XEN implantation in Chinese eyes with glaucoma.MethodsWe conducted a prospective study of 31 consecutive Chinese patients who underwent combined phacoemulsification and XEN implantation at the National University Hospital (Singapore) in this study. Patients were assessed preoperatively and postoperatively on days  1 and 7, and months 1, 3, 6, and 12. The intraocular pressure (IOP), glaucoma medication use, Snellen visual a...

It was with great interest we read the article published by Kim and associates1 on the rate of visual field progression in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) before and after cataract surgery. The authors concluded that the rate of glaucomatous visual field decay did not decrease despite reduced intraocular pressure (IOP), which may be attributed to a gradual increase in the deterioration rate and spike in postoperative IOP. We would like to provide our clinical observations, which are potentially relevant to the authors' results.

Rationale: Spherophakia is a rare diagnosis which is often associated with a shallow anterior chamber, angle-closure glaucoma, lens subluxation, and lenticular myopia. When cataracts occur with subluxation of the lens, vision is often markedly affected. This often presents surgeons with a unique challenge of maintaining good visual outcomes while minimizing potential complications. Patient concerns: A 48-year-old female was referred for ophthalmological assessment due to decreased vision in the left eye. In the left eye, the best-corrected visual acuity at distance was 20/125 with manifest refraction of −6.5D + ...

Abstract The International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) has considered for over sixty years that the lens of the eye is among the most radiosensitive tissues, and has recommended dose limits for the lens to prevent occurrence of vision impairing cataracts (VICs). Epidemiological evidence that doses much lower than previously thought produce cataracts led ICRP to recommend reducing dose threshold for VICs and reducing an occupational equivalent dose limit for the lens in 2011, when only a single threshold of 0.5 Gy was recommended. On the basis of epidemiological evidence, ICRP assumed progre...

Authors: AlBloushi AF, Al Fawaz AM, AlZaid A, Alsalamah AK, Gikandi PW, Abu El-Asrar AM Abstract Purpose: To investigate risk factors and surgical outcomes of cataract in Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease. Methods: Review of 187 patients (374 eyes). Results: At presentation, cataract was diagnosed in 56 (14.9%) eyes all had chronic recurrent VKH. During follow-up, cataract developed in additional 51 (13.6%) eyes. Fifteen (13.6%) of these had initial-onset acute VKH with anterior segment (AS) inflammation and 36 (19.4%) had chronic recurrent VKH. No patient with initial-onset acute VKH without AS inflammation devel...

In conclusion, this was the first study to investigate tear fluid CTGF concentration in PEX and PEG, which came out not to be a good classifier for PEG or PEX. Total protein level in tear fluid and CTGF SNPs also did not predict PEG or PEX status successfully. PMID: 31626800 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
