Visual acuity depends on the functions of RETINA, neuronal transmission, and the interpretative ability of the brain. Normal visual acuity is expressed as 20/20 indicating that one can see at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. Visual acuity can also be influenced by brightness, color, and contrast.

Zernike representation of corneal topography height data after nonmechanical penetrating keratoplasty. (1/1226)

PURPOSE: To demonstrate a mathematical method for decomposition of discrete corneal topography height data into a set of Zernike polynomials and to demonstrate the clinical applicability of these computations in the postkeratoplasty cornea. METHODS: Fifty consecutive patients with either Fuchs' dystrophy (n = 20) or keratoconus (n = 30) were seen at 3 months, 6 months, and 1 year (before suture removal) and again after suture removal following nonmechanical trephination with the excimer laser. Patients were assessed using regular keratometry, corneal topography (TMS-1, simulated keratometry [SimK]), subjective refraction, and best-corrected visual acuity (VA) at each interval. A set of Zernike coefficients with radial degree 8 was calculated to fit two model surfaces: a complete representation (TOTAL) and a representation with parabolic terms only to define an approximate spherocylindrical surface (PARABOLIC). The root mean square error (RMS) was calculated comparing the corneal raw height data with TOTAL (TOTALRMS) and PARABOLIC (PARABOLICRMS). The cylinder of subjective refraction was correlated with the keratometric readings, the SimK, and the respective Zernike parameter. Visual acuity was correlated with the tilt components of the Zernike expansion. RESULTS: The measured corneal surface could be approximated by the composed surface 1 with TOTALRMS < or = 1.93 microm and by surface 2 with PARABOLICRMS < or = 3.66 microm. Mean keratometric reading after suture removal was 2.8+/-0.6 D. At all follow-up examinations, the SimK yielded higher values, whereas the keratometric reading and the refractive cylinder yielded lower values than the respective Zernike parameter. The correlation of the Zernike representation and the refractive cylinder (P = 0.02 at 3 months, P = 0.05 at 6 months and at 1 year, and P = 0.01 after suture removal) was much better than the correlation of the SimK and refractive cylinder (P = 0.3 at 3 months, P = 0.4 at 6 months, P = 0.2 at 1 year, and P = 0.1 after suture removal). Visual acuity increased from 0.23+/-0.10 at the 3-month evaluation to 0.54+/-0.19 after suture removal. After suture removal, there was a statistically significant inverse correlation between VA and tilt (P = 0.02 in patients with keratoconus and P = 0.05 in those with Fuchs' dystrophy). CONCLUSIONS: Zernike representation of corneal topography height data renders a reconstruction of clinically relevant corneal topography parameters with a marked reduction of redundance and a small error. Correlation of amount/axis of refractive cylinder with respective Zernike parameters is more accurate than with keratometry or respective SimK values of corneal topography analysis.  (+info)

Changing trends in barriers to cataract surgery in India. (2/1226)

Cataract is a major cause of blindness in Asia. Efforts in India to provide cataract surgical services have had limited success in reaching the cataract-blind population. Earlier studies identified the major barriers to cataract surgery as poverty, lack of transportation or felt need, or sex related; and the critical barriers in rural areas as lack of awareness, difficult access, and cost. Compared with these earlier data, the results of the present study in Karnataka State indicate a shift in the character of the barriers. They now appear to be more related to case selection and service provision. These shifts are analysed and alternative strategies to increase the uptake to cataract surgery are recommended.  (+info)

Management of phacolytic glaucoma: experience of 135 cases. (3/1226)

We retrospectively analyzed 135 eyes with phacolytic glaucoma. A trabeculectomy was added to standard cataract surgery if symptoms endured for more than seven days, or if preoperative control of intraocular pressure (IOP) with maximal medical treatment was inadequate. In the early postoperative period, IOP was significantly lower in the combined surgery group (89 eyes) compared to the cataract surgery group (46 eyes) (p < 0.001). At 6 months there was no difference in IOP or visual acuity between the two groups. There were no serious complications related to trabeculectomy. It is reasonable to conclude that in eyes with a long duration of phacolytic glaucoma, addition of a trabeculectomy to cataract surgery is safe, prevents postoperative rise in intraocular pressure and decreases the need for systemic hypotensive medications. A randomized trial is on to further address this question.  (+info)

Economic burden of blindness in India. (4/1226)

Economic analysis is one way to determine the allocation of scarce resources for health-care programs. The initial step in this process is to estimate in economic terms the burden of diseases and the benefit from interventions for prevention and treatment of these diseases. In this paper, the direct and indirect economic loss due to blindness in India is calculated on the basis of certain assumptions. The cost of treating cataract blindness in India is estimated at current prices. The economic burden of blindness in India for the year 1997 based on our assumptions is Rs. 159 billion (US$ 4.4 billion), and the cumulative loss over lifetime of the blind is Rs. 2,787 billion (US$ 77.4 billion). Childhood blindness accounts for 28.7% of this lifetime loss. The cost of treating all cases of cataract blindness in India is Rs. 5.3 billion (US$ 0.15 billion). Similar estimates for causes of blindness other than cataract have to be made in order to develop a comprehensive approach to deal with blindness in India.  (+info)

Management of persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous by pars plana vitrectomy. (5/1226)

Two children with persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (PHPV) underwent vitrectomy and lensectomy via the pars plana to remove the fibrovascular stalk. Postoperatively the eyes were quiet, only a slight vitreous haze obscured the fundus view in the immediate postoperative period, and the stumps of the stalks retracted. Early surgical treatment of PHPV may prevent later serious complications.  (+info)

Lens extraction with ultrasound. Experiments in rabbits. (6/1226)

The extraction of the rabbit lens is described using a 25 G irrigating needle and a 22 G aspirating needle; at the latter's bevelled tip lens fragmentation occurs due to the longitudinal ultrasonic vibrations generated there--an 'acoustic horn' causes the tip to vibrate with large amplitudes. The use of small needles allows considerable manoeuvrability in the anterior chamber and usually eliminates the need for corneal suturing. Push-pull coupled syringes equate the volume of irrigation with that of aspiration. This procedure makes possible lens extraction through an aperture in the anterior capsule of the rabbit's lens and a similar machine is being constructed for trial on human cataract.  (+info)

Perifoveal vascular leakage and macular oedema after intracapsular cataract extraction. (7/1226)

Perifoveal capillary leakage of fluorescein was demonstrated in 60 per cent of 50 eyes when angiography was performed two weeks after cataract extraction. Repeat angiography six weeks postoperatively in 17 eyes demonstrated persistence of already established leakage in 11 of 12 eyes and no new leakage in five eyes previously negative. Cystoid macular oedema with visual acuity of less than 20/40 six weeks postoperatively occurred in five eyes (10 per cent). Eyes of patients with vascular disease and those patients of 60 years or older were found to have altered vascular permeability significantly more frequently. Inflammation was no more severe or prevalent in those patients who demonstrated leakage and no inflammation was clinically apparent in 10 of 11 eyes demonstrating dye leakage six weeks postoperatively. We conclude that the constitutional factors of age and vascular disease are of prime importance in causing altered vascular permeability in the early postoperative period after cataract extraction; factors causing sustained leakage with reduction of visual acuity were not demonstrated.  (+info)

Prospective audit comparing ambulatory day surgery with inpatient surgery for treating cataracts. (8/1226)

OBJECTIVES: To compare the cost effectiveness and safety of inpatient cataract surgery (with one night in hospital postoperatively) with ambulatory day case surgery under local anaesthesia. DESIGN: Prospective study of patients receiving inpatient (group 1) or day case (group 2) surgery. SETTING: One ophthalmic surgical firm. PATIENTS: 100 patients in each group, excluding those with coexisting ocular conditions, contraindications to local or request for general anaesthesia, ill health, or lack of agreed minimum social care; four patients died during follow up. INTERVENTIONS: Envelope method and implantation of the posterior chamber lens into the capsular sac in both groups. MAIN MEASURES: Perioperative complications, operating and turnover times, visual outcome at three to six days and 10 weeks to six months after operation, patient satisfaction (according to self administered questionnaire) at three to six days, and total costs (1989 salaries) for both groups. RESULTS: Patients in both groups did not differ significantly in age or sex, perioperative complications, visual outcome (6/9 or better in 78 patients in group 1 and 75 in group 2 at one month after operation and 6/12 or better in 92/98 in group 1, 90/98 in group 2 at final follow up), or patient satisfaction. The mean total cost per patient for group 1 patients was 365.99 pounds and for group 2, 221.62 pounds. CONCLUSIONS: Day case surgery for cataract is safe and more cost effective. IMPLICATIONS: Day case surgery should be recommended to increase availability of cataract surgery and thereby improve quality of life for more patients.  (+info)

Thirty two cases of endophthalmitis following extracapsular cataract surgery that had occurred within our department and had undergone intraocular diagnostic tap between May 1982 and May 1991 were reviewed. An infectious agent was identified in 20 cases (62.5%). The commonest organism was Staphylococcus epidermidis (11 cases) (55%). Proteus was the only gram negative organism identified (four cases) (20%). Both of these organisms were associated with a favourable visual outcome. In the culture positive subgroup 15 eyes (75%) achieved a final acuity of 6/60 or better with 10 eyes (50%) gaining 6/12 or better. Thirteen (65%) of the culture positive cases were managed without vitreal intervention. Of these 11 (85%) achieved 6/60 or better with eight (62%) gaining 6/12 or better. It appears that when an endophthalmitis follows uncomplicated extracapsular cataract surgery delivery of antibiotic by the conventional routes (topical, subconjunctival and systemic) is consistent with a favourable visual ...
Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery also known as manual phaco or MSICS or SICS. This is the most cost effective cataract cataract extraction method with consistent very good visual outcome.We are demonstrating a real small incision 5.5 mm in this video. (You have seen a lot of SICS video at youtube but there incision size more than 8 mm). All types of cataracts (hard cataract,posterior polar cataract, mature cataract, hypermature cataract) can be operated by this method. Because we are breaking nucleus in the tunnel and taking out in the pieces. The breaking of the nucleus is done in the tunnel,so cornea is spared form the injury. Most of the cases having bright clear cornea and 20/30 or better vision on the first post operative day

Cataract surgery has undergone significant changes beginning with the abandonment of intracapsular surgery, and continuing with the advent of intraocular lenses, and continuing variations in extracapsular lens removal. Extracapsular cataract surgery employing a 10mm incision at the limbus and requiring wound closure with sutures is considered a fall back technique that is easier to perform…
First eye cataract surgery significantly reduced patient falls, although major changes in the dioptric power of spectacle correction of the operated eye after surgery increased fall risk, reported Anna Palagyi, PhD, and fellow researchers. Their prospective cohort study included patients who had bilateral cataract, were aged 65 and older, and were on public hospital cataract surgery waiting lists in Australia. Of the 329 patients who were recruited, 66.6% had first eye surgery in the study period. The first eye cataract surgery reduced incident falls by 33%; poorer dominant eye visual acuity was associated with falls during the study timeline. Those who had a larger than ±0.75 spherical equivalent diopter change had a two-fold greater incidence of falls after first eye cataract surgery compared with those with less or no change in lens power. The researchers recommended cautious postop refractive management to maximize the benefit of cataract surgery as a fall prevention measure. The research ...
The demand for cataract surgery is set to increase due to the ageing population of Australia. Cataracts are usually bilateral, but cataract surgery is almost always performed one eye at a time. Previous investigations of the impact of cataract surgery seldom analysed the separate effects of each surgery. Instead, patients who underwent first, second or both eye surgeries were combined in the analyses. In Western Australia, public hospital patients wait substantial periods of time between first and second eye cataract surgeries. For these patients, understanding the separate effects of first eye surgery on driving difficulty, vision-related quality of life and depressive symptoms is of considerable importance for their safety and well-being.This before and after study aimed to gain a better understanding of the impact of first eye cataract surgery on self-reported driving difficulty, vision-related quality of life and depressive symptoms for older drivers. It also aimed to investigate how changes ...
Only one previous study has systematically investigated the visual experience of patients during cataract surgery.12This study assessed the visual experience of 56 patients during extracapsular cataract surgery under regional anaesthesia (peribulbar and retrobulbar blocks). Visual awareness was absent or limited to only light perception for four patients. The remaining patients observed colours (80%), movements (68%), flashes (66%), abstract colour images (55%), and objects (20%). During the course of surgery, patients also observed a change in light brightness (64%) and colours (20%).. Limited aspects of the visual experience during extracapsular cataract surgery under regional anaesthesia have also been reported in two other studies. In one study, surgical instruments were observed by 73% of patients during surgery under retrobulbar anaesthesia.13In another study, no patients observed surgical instruments during surgery under peribulbar anaesthesia but 20% of patients perceived abstract visual ...

Despite recommendations for greater use of second-eye cataract surgery and the bilateral progression of the disease, there is a substantial proportion of unmet need for this treatment. Few studies have explored the factors associated with second-eye cataract surgery utilisation. The objective of our study was to estimate the proportion of second-eye cataract surgery, evaluate its time-trend, and explore differences in utilisation by patients gender, age, and region of residence. All senile cataract surgeries performed between 1999 and 2002 in the public health system of Catalonia (Spain) were obtained from the Minimum Data Set. The proportion of second-eye surgery from November 2000 to December 2002 was calculated. The time-trend of this proportion was characterised through linear regression models with the logarithmic transformation of time. The proportion of second-eye surgery was 30.0% and showed an increasing trend from 24.8% (95% Confidence Interval [CI] 21.6; 26.1) in November 2000 to 31.8% (95%
Subjects will be assigned to receive either Besivance or Vigamox (1:1) to be administered as 1 drop in the study eye 4 times daily starting 3 days prior to cataract surgery and continuing for 7 days post-operatively..

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to assess the inflammatory status of the aqueous humor in the fellow eye after uneventful cataract surgery in the first eye. Methods: At the screening stage, aqueous humor samples from 15 first-eye and 15 second-eye cataract patients were collected just before cataract surgery and assayed using human cytokine antibody array. Screened cytokines were then verified using a suspension array system with aqueous humor samples obtained from 35 first-eye and 36 second-eye cataract patients. Results: The cytokine antibody array revealed that interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (Il-1ra) and macrophage inflammatory protein (MIP)-1a and MIP-1b were expressed at high levels in first-eye patients and were lower in second-eye patients, whereas opposite trends were found for monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 (MCP-1) and for regulated on activation, normal T expressed and secreted (RANTES) (all, P , 0.05, Students t-test). However, only MCP-1 and IL-1ra were significantly ...
Purpose: : To compare the effect of cataract surgery on intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with and without glaucoma. Methods: : This retrospective study included 179 glaucomatous eyes and 210 non-glaucomatous eyes, all of which had uncomplicated cataract surgery with posterior chamber lens implant between September 2006 and March 2008. No more than one eye was used per patient. Patients with ocular surgery or laser trabeculoplasty within one year prior to or one year after cataract surgery were excluded from the study. Postoperative IOP control in patients with glaucoma was compared to patients without glaucoma. IOP and number of glaucoma medications were recorded at 1 week, 1, 3, 6, and 12 months postoperatively. Paired and unpaired t-tests as well as chi square were used to analyze the data. Results: : Both groups were comparable in race and gender. The glaucoma group was significantly older at 72.3 years +/- 10.4 compared with the non-glaucoma group at 69.0 +/- 10.8 years (P=.002). Mean ...

Purpose: To determine the impact of cataract surgery on visual functions (VFs) and quality of life (QoL) in patients with cataract at the National Eye Center, Kaduna. Methods: VFs and QoL questionnaires were administered to the patients preoperatively and 6 weeks postoperatively. Correlation was assessed among subjective VF, QoL, and visual acuity (VA). The preoperative and sixth-week postoperative VA, VF scores, and QoL scores were compared. A paired t-test was used for comparison between before and after surgery. Results: Two hundred and seventy-one patients were studied. The age range of the patients was 45 to 85 years with a mean age of 64.2 years (SD ± 6.51). There was significant improvement in overall VF and QoL following cataract surgery (P,0.0001). Mean VF scores preoperatively and at 6 weeks postoperatively were 28.6 (SD ± 7.9) and 15.1 (SD ± 3.5), respectively. The overall mean QoL scores were 23.7 (SD ± 9.0.) preoperatively and 13.5 (SD ± 1.1) postoperatively. This difference ...
Background: Cataract is the principal cause of curable blindness in India. The most recent estimates from World Health Organization reveal that 47.8% of global blindness is due to cataract and in South Asia region, which includes India, 51% of blindness is due to cataract. Aims: Our study was to assess the post-operative visual outcome after small incision cataract surgery (SICS) in camp patients during the study period from October 2011 to June 2012. Materials and Methods: Cataract surgeries were carried out in patients (with no known systemic illnesses), after screening at community based screening camps. All senile cataracts were included and complicated cataracts were excluded from the study. Patients underwent manual SICS with posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation. Post-operatively patients received oral antibiotic for 5 days and antibiotic-steroid eye drops for 6 weeks. Patients were followed-up at regular intervals. Spectacle correction was given at the end of 6 weeks. Results: ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The effects of intracameral carbachol on post-operative intraocular pressure rises after cataract extraction in the dog. AU - Stuhr, C. M.. AU - Miller, P. E.. AU - Murphy, Christopher J. AU - Schoster, J. V.. PY - 1997. Y1 - 1997. N2 - Purpose. We previously have demonstrated ciliary cleft collapse as a component of the acute post-operative rise in IOP in dogs following phacoemulsification lens extraction (Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 1994, 35:419). The purpose of this study was to determine if intracameral carbachol at the conclusion of cataract extraction would blunt the elevation in IOP in the early post-operative period. Methods. A randomized, placebo-controlled, masked trial was performed using thirty-one dogs which were assigned into four groups: 1) posterior chamber IOL placement with 0.5 ml of BSS, 2) PC IOL with 0.5 ml of 0.01% carbachol, 3) aphakic with 0.5 ml BSS, and 4) aphakic with 0.5 ml of 0.01% carbachol. IOP was measured by applanation tonometry and intraocular ...
Introduction Globally, cataract is the most frequent cause of blindness, affecting more than 20 million people (1). Most of these people live in rural areas of developing countries, where there are limited ophthalmologically trained personnel or services.. There are two ways to remove the cataractous lens. It can be extracted in its entirety (intracapsular cataract extraction, ICCE) or the lens contents can be removed leaving the posterior lens capsule in place (extracapsular cataract extraction, ECCE). ICCE is a quicker and simpler technique, but is associated with more complications related to disturbance of the vitreous face. It is still commonly performed in rural Africa and Asia, whereas ECCE is the preferred technique in industrialized countries. The disadvantage of ECCE is that, in a proportion of cases, the lens capsule becomes opaque, requiring further intervention in order to maintain good vision.. It is generally agreed that inserting an intraocular lens into the eye during surgery is ...

A concise review and comprehensive guide to improving cataract surgery outcomes. Significant advances have been made in refractive surgery in the last decade. Eye surgeons today can leverage many cutting-edge intraocular lens (IOL) technologies such as multifocal, extended depth of field, toric, accommodating, and aspheric. Concurrent innovations including optics, phacoemulsification, superior keratometry and biometry, and posterior cornea evaluation have resulted in improved cataract surgery outcomes. Recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of cataracts have dramatically improved patient satisfaction following cataract surgery, yet common and rare complications still occur such as dry eye, endophthalmitis, and retinal detachment. Furthermore, only 80% of cataract surgery procedures bring patients to within 0.5 diopters of their needed refraction..

Progress in the accuracy of intraocular lens (IOL) biometry, new IOL designs, and the concomitant rise in patients refractive expectations has brought emphasis to the optics of intraocular lenses. This chapter focuses on the optical considerations relevant to IOLs. For information on the history and development of IOLs, and more surgical information with respect to IOLs, see BCSC Section 11, Lens and Cataract.. In the 1970s, surgeons implanting IOLs included those who used intracapsular cataract extraction (ICCE) and those who used small-incision phacoemulsification (phaco). The IOL optic was made from polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), with supporting haptics of metal, polypropylene, or PMMA. The rigidity of these materials required that a small phaco incision be enlarged for IOL insertion. However, following the introduction of a foldable optic (made from silicone) in the late 1980s, enlargement was no longer required, and the combination of phaco and IOL implantation was widely adopted.. The ...
Cataract surgery is an elective procedure. Careful patient selection is imperative in order to achieve a successful result. Dogs that exhibit pre-existent keratitis, keratoconjunctivitis sicca, uveitis, glaucoma, and retinal degeneration are usually poor surgical candidates.. Pre-operative diagnostic examinations should include a complete hemogram, biochemical profile, sterile urinalysis, electroretinography (ERG), and ocular ultrasound. The ERG will rule-out the presence of retinal degeneration and progressive retinal atrophy. An ocular ultrasound can detect focal to diffuse retinal detachments and vitreal opacifications.. There exist three general techniques for cataract extraction: extracapsular lens extraction (ECLE), intracapsular lens extraction (ICLE), and phacofragmentation (also called phacoemulsification or phaco for short). Phacofragmentation is the preferred technique for cataract removal by veterinary ophthalmologists today. Intracapsular lens extractions are reserved for ...
Patients undergoing cataract surgery often have questions about the procedure and what will happen afterwards. Below are a few commonly asked question about what to expect. Will I be awake during the procedure?. Most cataract surgeries are performed under topical anesthesia (eye drops). Many patients will also be given a sedative and/or anti-anxiety medicine during the procedure. Occasionally, a patient will receive a novocaine-like medication injected under the eye to relax the eye muscles and numb the nerves for pain. General anesthesia is uncommon, but can be used if you feel you would be uncomfortable during the procedure, have a difficult time remaining still, or have intense anxiety.. Whats happens right after my cataract surgery?. Most people go home the same day. Because you may feel a little groggy from anesthesia or have blurry vision in the early stages, youll need to have an escort take you home. Its also important to get your prescriptions filled (NYEE has its own pharmacy on ...
Amar Agarwal is the pioneer of Phakonit which is Phako with a Needle Incision Technology. This technique became popularized as Bimanual phaco, Microincision cataract surgery (MICS) or Microphaco. He is the first to remove cataracts through a 0.7 mm tip with the technique called Microphakonit. He has also discovered No anesthesia cataract surgery and FAVIT a new technique to remove dropped nuclei. The air pump which was a simple idea of using an aquarium fish pump to increase the fluid into the eye in bimanual phaco and co-axial phaco has helped prevent surge. This built the basis of various techniques of forced infusion for small incision cataract surgery. He has also discovered a new refractive error called Aberropia. He has also been the first to do a combined surgery of microphakonit (700 micron cataract surgery) with a 25 gauge vitrectomy in the same patient thus having the smallest incisions possible for cataract and vitrectomy. He is also the first surgeon to implant a new mirror ...

Patients having cataract surgery at The Eye Clinic of Texas dont have to be concerned with undue restrictions on leaving Houston and flying and air travel after their cataract operation. Having cataract surgery doesnt need t present a major barrier to air travel of flying, stated Bernard Milstein, M.D. My cataract patients-especially as they seem to be getting younger-are continuing very active lifestyles. Often they need to get on an airplane or take advantage of air travel arrangements after cataract surgery and dont want to be hindered.. Most cataract surgeons require their patients to be examined the first day after cataract surgery and again at about 5-8 days after a cataract operation. This is the period of time where rare, but potentially serious, complications would likely be detected, if they were to occur. Beyond this period of time it is more a matter of making sure that you have access to continued follow up care at your cataract surgeons direction. If you are contemplating a ...

HORV after uneventful cataract surgery is a dreaded complication. There is an ongoing debate concerning the association of intracameral vancomycin and HORV. Nicholson et al. reported severe bilateral ischemic retinal vasculitis after uncomplicated cataract surgery in two patients. The authors associated the vasculopathy with the use of intracameral vancomycin at the close of the cataract procedure [9]. Witkin et al. discussed the findings of 36 eyes that experienced severe HORV and found that this exceedingly rare condition could represent a delayed immune reaction to intracameral vancomycin [10]. Balducci et al. presented a case where HORV developed only on the eye where vancomycin prophylaxis had been used at the end of the procedure, while the second eye of the same patient that underwent cataract surgery without vancomycin prophylaxis remained unaffected [11]. Most reported cases present poor results.. The case presented herein showed some differences from other similar reports. First, our ...

Cataracts in its early development can cause blurred vision, nearsightedness or color blindness. If it goes without treatment and the cataract advances to covering up the lens of the eye, the person can go blind and cannot recover his or her vision unless subjected to cataract surgery. Generally, cataract surgeries are done on outpatient basis, meaning, the person with a cataract can get operated by an eye surgeon and in just few minutes cataract extraction is completed. The patient can rest for a couple of hours in the doctors office and can go home after.. There are things that must be done in order for the operated eye to heal faster and heal successfully. Medicated eye drops, taking antibiotics and regular check-up with the doctor would be necessary. On the other hand, there are people who are asking how soon women can wear eye makeup after cataract surgery. Well the answer to this depends on the condition of the eye after surgery. Generally, the eye needs to be covered with sterile gauze ...
There are some multifocal IOLs that is capable of correcting near vision problems that is commonly caused by presbyopia which in turn can also reduce your need to wear glasses as well. In general, these premium IOLs will let your cataract surgeon recommend you for a laser cataract surgery so that you will achieve the best possible visual outcomes. In some cases, minor refractive errors will still remain even after refractive cataract surgery has been performed. If this happens then LASIK or PRF surgery can be performed several weeks or a few months after to further improve your eyesight even when youre not wearing your sunglasses. You need to know that both laser cataract surgery and refractive cataract surgery will involve some of your own pocket expenses since it can be beyond what your vision or health insurance can cover for the cost of a normal cataract surgery. ...

A cataract is progressive clouding of the natural lens in your eye. Cataracts are a natural part of aging and are one of the most common causes of vision loss in patients over the age of 65. No medication, laser treatment or exercise regimen can make cataracts disappear. The only way to eliminate a cataract is through surgery. There have been many technological advancements in cataract surgery during the last twenty years. Today, not only is cataract surgery one of the most common surgical procedures in the United States, it is also one of the safest. Cataract surgery no longer requires a hospital stay with bandaged eyes. It is usually performed in an outpatient setting, with patients going home following the procedure. Eye drops are needed for several days to protect against infection and inflammation. Most patients have minimal discomfort and can return to normal activities within 1-2 days after surgery.. During cataract surgery, the cloudy natural lens is removed from the eye and replaced ...

In a prospective cohort study, researchers examined the possibility and characteristics of a late increase in the cumulative risk of retinal detachment after cataract extraction and IOL implantation. They analyzed the records of 5,235 female and 4,153 male insurance beneficiaries who underwent cataract extraction and IOL implantation between August 1, 1999, and December 1, 2001, for a total of 9,388 cases. Before the end of the study, 1,084 cases were counted as lost to follow-up. The cumulative 8-year retinal detachment rate was 2.31% in the total group. The mean interval between cataract extraction and diagnosis of retinal detachment was 40.6 ±13.34 months. Factors that significantly affected the risk of retinal detachment included male gender (P = .01), age less than 50 years (P = .002), increased axial length, and a history of retinal detachment in the fellow eye (P = .005). Patients with high myopia had a significantly increased risk of retinal detachment 4 years after cataract extraction ...

We offer free Cataract seminars throughout the year with a Q&A session and one of the questions we hear often, is Will my cataract ever return after I have it removed? Many people are concerned about whether or not they will need to repeat cataract surgery on the same eye at a later date. Luckily, you can rest assured that you cannot get a cataract in the same eye after having cataract surgery. A cataract is the clouding of the eyes natural lens. In cataract surgery, the natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens called an IOL. The new lens will not get cloudy. A small portion of cataract patients, experience a clouding of the lens capsule months or years after surgery. This occurs in the membrane or sac that used tohold the natural lens. This is called Capsular Opacification. Should this rare occurrence happen to you, it is easily treated by a YAG Laser Capsulotomy, a quick and painless procedure that can be done in our office in just a few minutes.

Most minor problems improve on their own but some complications may require additional surgery. Highly experienced surgeons, such as Beverly Hills Vision Institutes Dr. Khodabakahsh, are often sought out for their skill with revision cataract surgery. Dr. Khodabakahsh is expertise is used to treat most lens related eye complications.. Cataract Surgery Basics. A cataract is formed when the natural lens of the eye opacifies to the point of not allowing light to pass through freely to the retina. Similar to a smudge on glasses lenses, cataracts make what you are viewing fuzzy, hazy or cloudy. Cataract surgery aims to remove the protein-riddled lens and replace it with a clear implant, known as an intraocular lens or IOL. The incision in the eye is so small it ...
What Is Refractive Eye Surgery?. By Gray Rollins. Refractive eye surgery is a type of eye surgery that is used to rectify refractive errors of the eye and decrease dependency on corrective lenses such as eyeglasses and contact lenses. Successful refractive procedures can reduce myopia or nearsightedness, hyperopia or farsightedness, and astigmatism or elongated corneas. A number of different procedures exist for refractive eye surgery depending upon the type and severity of the refractive error. There are four main types of refractive eye surgery procedures: flap and photoablation procedures; corneal incision procedures; thermal procedures; and implants. Currently, the most common refractive eye surgeries involve the use of lasers to reshape the cornea. Flap procedures involve cutting a small flap in the cornea so that the tissue underneath can be reshaped to correct the refractive error. LASIK, short for Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis, is the most popular refractive surgery and is used ...
Cataracts are opacities of the lens of the eye that reduce the amount of light that reaches the retina. For the individual with cataracts, this results in a dimming of vision that can progress to blindness if the cataracts are not treated. In fact, there are currently 15,000,000 people worldwide who have lost their vision due to cataracts. While there is currently no way to prevent the development of cataracts, they can be effectively treated with a cataract surgery procedure. Cataracts can occur as a result of several different causes, but are generally associated with aging. The following are risk factors that can increase the likelihood of developing cataracts: smoking, alcohol use, exposure to sunlight, obesity, diabetes, and use of steroid medications such as prednisone. When cataracts are due to aging they typically occur in both eyes but often affect one eye more than the other.. ...
If you have developed a cataract, surgery is performed to remove the cloudy lens, replace it with a new lens, and improve your vision. With over 2 million cataract surgeries performed in the US each year, it is one of the most commonly performed surgeries. In the hands of a skilled surgeon like Dr. Goran, this is a generally well-tolerated procedure with little or no discomfort. Cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure normally taking only a few hours of your time with most procedures lasting less than 10 minutes. Patients usually return to normal activities the day after their surgery. Cataract surgery is a highly successful and effective way of restoring your vision..

Cataract surgery will not restore vision lost from other eye conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, or diabetic retinopathy.. Your ophthalmologist will talk with you about the risks and benefits of cataract surgery.. Posterior Capsular Opacification. Your vision could become cloudy or blurry weeks, months, or years after cataract surgery. This is not unusual. Your doctor might call this a posterior capsular opacification (or PCO). Its also called secondary cataract or scar tissue. Its not like a scar you get on your skin. But because it happens after the eye has healed from cataract surgery, some people think of it as a scar. It happens when a membrane called the posterior capsule becomes cloudy. It might help to think of the posterior capsule as a transparent pocket. It holds your IOL in place. It also once held your eyes natural lens (what became the cataract) in place. If you notice cloudy vision again, you might need to have a laser procedure. The laser creates an ...
Cataracts are a degenerative eye condition usually associated with advanced age, but people of all ages can be treated for cataracts. June is Cataract Awareness Month, so lets explore some of the most common questions about early cataract development and treatment.. What Causes Cataracts. Most people will eventually develop a cataract, but some cataracts form earlier or quicker. Certain environmental factors, health conditions and lifestyle habits can cause cataracts to form more rapidly. These include cigarette smoking, UV exposure, eye trauma, hypertension, diabetes, steroid use, or genetic predisposition to early cataracts.. How Do You Know If You Have Cataracts. Cataract development is a slow and progressive process. In fact, you probably wont know you have a developing cataract until your ophthalmologist tells you. It may be years before the cataract begins to impair your vision and cause symptoms like double vision, blurred vision, muted colors, glares and halos.. When to Have Cataract ...

Epidemiological research suggests that a large number of senile cataract formation more risk factors: smoking, alcohol consumption, ultraviolet radiation, such as diabetes and corticosteroids [4], but the exact cause of the disease is not clear. Cataract and refractive error correlation between the reports [5,6] is greater: cortical cataract may appear astigmatism change; nuclear cataract can cause progression of myopia; a high degree of myopia and cataract formation are relevant, medium and low degree of myopia associated with cataract formation is still in dispute. Myopia may be the mechanism leading to cataract [7,8] is: the regulatory power of myopia declined, making ciliary muscle ...

The CSR is highest in Cuba, Brazil, and Argentina, and lowest in Guatemala. However, the average number of cataract operations per eye surgeon is highest in Guatemala and lowest in Argentina. In 2005, the large majority of surgeries (95-100%) were performed with IOLs (intraocular lenses).. DISCUSSION. Variations across survey areas. There is great variation in socioeconomic conditions and availability of cataract surgical services in Latin America. This may largely explain the disparity in prevalence of blindness and, even more so, low vision, due to cataract in the nine surveys reviewed here (24). The demand for cataract surgery is expected to be higher among wealthy urban professionals compared to poor rural laborers. Also, the visual acuity threshold for cataract surgery may be higher in rural areas.. Service provider. While the majority of cataract operations reported in these studies were conducted in public and private hospitals, there was wide variation across countries. In Cuba, for ...
The 8-year frequency of acute-onset endophthalmitis was 1.26‰ after cataract surgery, 0.96‰ for extracapsular cataract extraction and 1.30‰ for clear-cornea phacoemulsification. The mean duration between cataract extraction and endophthalmitis onset was 8.7+2.1 days (range, 1 to 37 days). A percent of 65.2% of endophthalmitis occurred within 7 days. The incidence was significantly higher in summer (2.55‰) than in other seasons. The incidence was 0.57‰ in patients with combined diabetes and 1.54‰ in the non-diabetic (P=0.110). No endophthalmitis developed among patients older than 85 years. Two of the 23 patients (8.7%) were cured with antibiotic agents only. Eleven patients (47.8%) received antibiotic irrigation of the capsular bag. Six patients (26.1%) had both antibiotic irrigation of the capsular bag and intravitreal injection of antibiotics. Four patients (17.4%) were cured by vitreous surgery. Cultures were positive in 16.7% of the patients with aqueous humor samples and 26.1% ...
The treatment of cataract is surgical. During surgery the cloudy tissue has to be removed and then the replaced by a clear manmade lens called an intraocular lens or IOL.. Most cataract surgeries are done with a technique called phacoemulsification (small cut incision cataract surgery).. Under local anesthesia, a surgeon performing phacoemulsification makes a small opening on the side of your cornea. A device that sends out ultrasound vibrations is inserted into the eye and breaks the lens into small pieces. The fragments are then removed by suction through the small cut in the eye.. After the cataract is removed, the surgeon replaces it with a new, man-made lens called an intraocular lens. This procedure is called intraocular lens implantation.. The IOL is clear plastic, acrylic, or silicone with an optical power chosen by the surgeon to help restore normal vision, often minimizing the dependence on eyeglasses after surgery. This lens is permanent and doesnt need any special care.. The IOL ...

A cataract is a clouding of the crystalline lens of the eye, which may occur slowly or rapidly. Symptoms that occur with cataracts include decreased near or distance vision and glare or halos.. Todays cataract surgery utilizes a small incision, no-suture technique. No shots or needles are used behind the eye. The cataract lens is removed with an instrument that uses high energy ultrasound. It is called phacoemulsification. This instrument breaks the cataract up into very small particles, which are then aspirated from the eye.. Following the removal of the cataract, an intraocular lens is placed in the eye through the small incision to take the place of the cataract lens.. Antibiotic drops and steroid or nonsteroidal drops are used in the eye postoperatively. You will be seen on postoperative day one to evaluate the eye. As with any surgery, complications can occur, and there is a possibility of hemorrhage or infection.. After cataract surgery the cataract does not return. However, one out of ...
Lens Implant. Traditionally, when a cataract develops, the eye lens is replaced with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). The lens is usually focused for distance vision, requiring that the patient need to wear reading glasses or contact lenses to focus in on nearer objects.. Through recent advancements in lens technology, an IOL is now available that can provide the patient with a greater range of vision while reducing the need for glasses and contacts. The ReSTOR® intraocular lens provides a full range of functional vision for patients that desire a significant decrease in their dependence on glasses or contacts..
