With only emergency surgical procedures being performed with few elective surgical procedures, surgical volumes are at an all-time low. This has resulted in decreased surgical training opportunities for trainee surgeons. We developed a simple, cost-effective, 3D printed model eye – RetiSurge – for “Dry Lab” vitreoretinal surgery training. The model incorporates a retinal film that can be changed, makin...

We describe the new technique of chandelier-assisted pneumatic retinopexy in repairing rhegmatogenous retinal detachments in a series of young adults. In the operating room, a 25-gauge trocar cannula is inserted at the pars plana 180° across the preoperatively detected retinal break followed by Chandelier light insertion, which is used in globe fixation and rotation. The retinal periphery is reexamined using scleral indentation and chandelier light endoillumination. Transconjunctival cryopexy is performed around the break followed by paracentesis and pure sulfur hexafluoride gas injection. Twelve eyes of 12 patients w...

Posterior optic buttonholing of intraocular lens implantation through posterior capsulorrhexis margin: A technique of intraocular lens implantation in cases of anterior capsulorrhexis extension in pediatric cataract surgery
This study aimed to evaluate the intra- and postoperative complications of intraocular lens (IOL) implantation with posterior optic buttonholing (POBH) in children that had undergone phacoemulsification irrigation/aspiration for congenital/developmental cataract and experienced complication of anterior capsulorrhexis extension (ACE). A total of 25 eyes of 21 patients were included in the study. A foldable three-piece IOL was implanted into the bag/ciliary sulcus with primary posterior capsulorrhexis and POBH. The visual acuity improved from 2.12 ± 0.69 log MAR to 1.38 ± 0.49 log MAR at 6 months follow-up. Postope...

Cataract surgery in eyes with associated coloboma: Predictors of outcome and safety of different surgical techniques
Conclusion: Favorable functional outcomes can be achieved with phacoemulsification in eyes with softer cataract and corneal diameter >8 mm and with M-SICS in eyes with hard cataracts and corneal diameter of 6–8 mm. PE should be considered as the primary choice whenever permissible by the corneal diameter and severity of nuclear sclerosis. Poor functional outcomes were seen in eyes with smaller corneal diameter, extensive chorioretinal coloboma, and intraoperative complications. (Source: Indian Journal of Ophthalmology)

Comparative evaluation of Octopus semi-automated kinetic perimeter with Humphrey and Goldmann perimeters in neuro-ophthalmic disorders
Conclusion: Clinical correlation aids in better characterisation of a field defect. All 3 perimeters are concurrent in the pattern of field defects for non-central defects. However, the default protocol on OVF may not be enough to demarcate the central and para-central scotomas. Development of a customised protocol for the assessment of central and centrocecal field defects increases the accuracy of OVF. (Source: Indian Journal of Ophthalmology)
