Anterior Chamber Illumination in Cataract Surgery for Eyes With Poor Red Reflex

Conclusions: DSO is a viable therapy in certain cases of postsurgical corneal decompensation.
Descemet membrane detachment (DMD) is a potential vision-threatening complication that occurs most commonly after cataract surgery. DMD has also been reported to occur in various other surgeries like keratoplasty, iridectomy, vitrectomy, trabeculectomy, holmium laser sclerostomy, alkali burn, and viscocanalostomy. Major risk factors include advanced age, preexisting endothelial diseases like Fuchs dystrophy or abnormality in the Descemet membrane and stromal interface, hard cataract, prolonged surgical time, ragged clear corneal incisions, and inadvertent trauma with blunt instruments or phacoemulsification probe.
Conclusions: A multimodal approach to intraocular sampling should be considered in those presenting with endophthalmitis, with both aqueous tap and vitrectomy associated with an increased probability of achieving a positive culture.
Conclusion: Descemet-stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty is a safe and successful procedure in children with an acceptable graft survival in a mid-term follow-up period. A marked hyperopic shift could occur after DSAEK in children with CHED.
Conclusions: DM suturing can reattach DM, especially in moderate to severe, recurrent DMD with fewer postoperative complications and thereby reduce the need for corneal transplantation.
ConclusionsThe TCRP provides the highest predictability of IOL power calculation in post-PTK eyes. This result suggests that the use of the TCRP, rather than of conventional anterior keratometry, may be clinically helpful for improving the refractive accuracy of post-PTK eyes.
This patient has a recurrent corneal epithelial defect. Typical causes of recurrent corneal epithelial defect include anterior epithelial basement membrane dystrophy (EBMD) and other corneal dystrophies associated with recurrent epithelial erosions,1 infectious causes, neurotrophic cornea, medicamentosa, floppy eyelid syndrome, and foreign bodies, among others. However, this patient is unique in that she does not have typical slitlamp findings associated with many corneal dystrophies; has been treated extensively for potential infectious causes without positive viral, bacterial, or other culture results; has intact corneal...
CONCLUSION: Throughout the intraocular lens implantation cataract surgery, there was an increase in parasympathetic modulation and a decrease in the sympathetic component of the heart rate (HR). We propose that this result is attributable to the supine position of the patients during surgery and the trigeminal reflex.
