pupillary dilation

Clinical experience with a mechanical pupil dilatorCataract patients with small pupils present a particular challenge for surgeons. Using a pupil expansion device such as the Malyugin ring may help to reduce the complications associated with small pupil cataract surgery.
The proper procedure for testing pupilsBecause of its potential to reveal serious retinal, neurologic or other disease, pupil testing is a crucial part of the ophthalmic examination and requires astute observation. This procedure should be included as a component of every comprehensive examination or any time a patient needs to be dilated—in addition to any problem-focused visit involving eye health, such as a red eye visit, ocular emergency, or intraocular pressure (IOP) check.
What phenylephrine/ketorolac injection means for preoperative cataract regimenThe approval of intracameral phenylephrine and ketorolac injection 1%/0.3% (Omidria, Omeros Corp.) could have implications for preoperative management and potentially postoperative management as well, according to John R. Wittpenn, MD, Ophthalmic Consultants of Long Island. While the FDA study evaluated pain and maintenance of pupillary dilation pertaining to intraoperative use of Omidria, the findings hint at additional benefits.
