cataract surgery

Managing complications using the Malyugin ringThe Malyugin ring is a safe alternative to traditional pupil-expansion approaches in cataract surgery. Here, best practice for safe surgery and a case study are described
Visual outcomes and incidence of PCO associated with a novel IOLA novel glistening-free IOL has been tested in 94 eyes and found to give good visual outcomes with a low incidence of PCO
Cataract surgery may raise diabetic macular oedema riskCataract surgery increases the risk of diabetic macular oedema (DMO), medical records from the United Kingdom suggest. An analysis of 4,850 eyes showed that the rate of DMO requiring treatment spiked about 4 months after the surgery.
Cataract surgery may prolong life in older women
Lens fragmentation device is in the loopA micro-interventional device that uses a nitinol filament can dissect any grade cataract without causing capsular stress.
Cataract, glaucoma collision sparks MIGS, other innovationThe 2017 Charles D. Kelman Lecture touched on three main areas—from the teaching of the phaco technique during the early years of phaco to use of phaco in glaucoma patients to the introduction of phaco to surgeons in developing countries.
Innovations change face of modern cataract surgeryEric Donnenfeld, MD, Robert H. Osher, MD, and Mark Packer, MD, review the year of cataract surgery advances and look to forthcoming developments.
Four ocular surface health questions to consider before cataract surgeryA thorough investigation of ocular surface health and initiation of any necessary treatment is the first step toward successful cataract surgery.
Steroid and NSAID combination prevents macular oedema after cataractsA combination of a topical corticosteroid and a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) is more effective than either one alone in reducing the risk of cystoid macular oedema (CME) after cataract surgery in nondiabetic patients, researchers say.
Femtosecond advances help ODs, patientsOur patients have numerous choices regarding advanced technology and eye care. Advances range from how patients check in for an appointment to what tools a surgeon uses to dissect tissue. They all have their benefits, and all come at a cost.
