Challenges in Post-cataract Surgery Nocardia Endophthalmitis: Management Strategies and Clinical Outcomes.

CONCLUSIONS: We did not find any significant association between functional outcome and time of surgery or presenting VA. Additional amikacin may be considered if there is a strong suspicion of nocardia endophthalmitis, as it may help in achieving better anatomical outcomes.

CONCLUSION: When gastroenterologists encounter NAFLD/NASH patients, serum CK should be verified. If hyperCKemia, frontal baldness, a hatched face, history of cataract surgery, and grip myotonia are noted, the possibility of MD may be considered. PMID: 33033573 [PubMed]

Authors: Pérez Silguero D, Pérez Silguero MÁ, Pérez-Silguero Jiménez S, Encinas Pisa P Abstract The case concerns a 54-year-old woman, with a history of fibromyalgia and normal preoperative ocular and systemic study, who presented with a long-lasting disabling photophobia, after sequential bilateral cataract surgery without complications. Photophobia was accompanied by good uncorrected VA, with no pain or subjective eye discomfort, without migraine or indicators of psychic conflict. It was refractory to any prescribed treatment of the ocular surface, finally responding to oral ant...

Authors: Verdina T, Peppoloni C, Barbieri L, Carbotti MR, Battaglia B, Mastropasqua R, Cavallini GM Abstract Purpose: To evaluate capsulotomy shape and posterior capsule opacification (PCO) during an 18-month follow-up for bimanual femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS). Methods: 74 eyes operated by a well-trained surgeon with bimanual FLACS technique using low-energy LDV Z8 (Ziemer Ophthalmic Systems AG, Port, Switzerland) were included in the study. The follow-up period was 18 ± 2 months. Another 91 eyes, which underwent standard bimanual microincision cataract surgery (B-MIC...

Authors: Jackson K, Wisely CE, Davis BM, Griffin B, Kim T Abstract OBJECTIVE: To examine opioid prescribing following cataract surgery among patients who did or did not receive OMIDRIA (phenylephrine and ketorolac intraocular solution 1.0%/0.3%) referred to as "P/K." METHODS: The retrospective study compared adults over 65 without recent opioid use in the MarketScan databases who had a cataract-related surgical procedure between January 1, 2015, and July 31, 2019. Opioid prescription fills in the initial 2 and 7 days following surgery were compared between patients who did or did not receive P/K durin...

To investigate the early incidence of neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser capsulotomy according to intraocular lens (IOL) type (non-toric vs. toric) and surgical techniques (femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery vs. conventional phacoemulsification) in eyes with refractive multifocal IOLs.

We report a rare case of profound bilateral complications treated successfully with oral and intravitreal steroids. To the authors’ knowledge, this has not previously been reported in the literature. Ophthalmologists and oncologists should be aware of the ocular effects of pembrolizumab and be able to identify various complications early. Here, cataract surgery with a steroid implant has been an effective sight-saving intervention. The promising visual outcome makes this an unusual success story.

We report our experience with IOL placement in cataract surgery in the setting of paediatric uveitis. METHODS: This non-comparative, retrospective interventional case series examined our cases of paediatric cataract occurring in patients with uveitis from 2003 to 2016. Parameters examined included visual acuity (VA), underlying diagnosis, immunosuppression status, intra-operative complications and requirement for further surgery. RESULTS: In total, 10 eyes of seven patients were identified. The mean age at diagnosis of uveitis was 7.7 years (range 5.2-14 years) with onset of cataract at a mean of 29...
