Performing cataract surgery with phaco in patients with previous implantationsThis case study presents the results and advantages of phacoemulsification, which Dr Dieter W Klass and his team applied after previous implantation of an iris-fixated phakic IOL (pIOL) (Artisan, Ophtec) for the correction of high myopia without explantation of the pIOL.
What is the best way to correct congenital cataracts?A study comparing methods of optical correction after surgery for congenital cataract shows no difference in visual outcomes or myopic shift between children left aphakic and those who received piggyback IOL implantation.
Risks of IOL replacement in children under age of 2 exceed benefitsThe risks of intraocular lens (IOL) replacement in children under 2 years of age may exceed the benefits, according to Ameenat Lola Solebo and colleagues from the British Isles Congenital Cataract Interest Group.
Intraoperative aberrometry can help improve refractive resultsIntraoperative aberrometry aphakic and pseudophakic readings can be comparable with careful control of surgical variables. Both readings can be useful to predict postoperative manifest refraction.
