Intraocular lenses in children: changes in axial length, corneal curvature, and refraction. (1/105)AIM: To assess changes in axial length, corneal curvature, and refraction in paediatric pseudophakia. METHODS: 35 eyes of 24 patients with congenital or developmental lens opacities underwent extracapsular cataract extraction and posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation. Serial measurements were made of axial length, corneal curvature, objective refraction, and visual acuity. RESULTS: For patients with congenital cataracts (onset < 1 year age) the mean age at surgery was 24 weeks. Over the mean follow up period of 2.7 years, the mean increase in axial length of 3.41 mm was not significantly different from the value of an expected mean growth of 3.44 mm (paired t test, p = 0.97) after correction for gestational age. In the developmental cataract group (onset > 1 year of age) the mean age at surgery was 6.4 years with a mean follow up of 2.86 years. This group showed a mean growth in axial length of 0.36 mm that was not significantly different from an expected value of 0.47 mm (paired t test, p = 0.63). The mean preoperative keratometry was 47.78 D in the congenital group and 44.35 D in the developmental group. At final follow up the mean keratometry in the congenital group was 46.15 D and in the developmental group it was 43.63 D. In eyes followed for at least 2 years, there was an observed myopic shift by 24 months postoperatively of 3.26 D in the congenital cases (n = 10) and 0.96 D in the developmental cases (n = 18). CONCLUSION: The pattern of axial elongation and corneal flattening was similar in the congenital and developmental groups to that observed in normal eyes. No significant retardation or acceleration of axial growth was found in the eyes implanted with IOLs compared with normal eyes. A myopic shift was seen particularly in eyes operated on at 4-8 weeks of age and it is recommended that these eyes are made 6 D hypermetropic initially with the residual refractive error being corrected with spectacles.

Diabetic versus non-diabetic colour vision after cataract surgery. (2/105)AIMS: To examine whether the colour vision abnormalities found in phakic patients with diabetes mellitus is preserved after removal of the lens by cataract surgery. METHODS: 21 diabetic (16 IDDM and five NIDDM) and 19 non-diabetic patients of comparable age, postoperative visual acuity, and sex distribution, all aphakic or pseudophakic following cataract surgery, had their monocular colour vision examined using the Farnsworth-Munsell 100 hue test. The fundus status of the diabetic patients ranged from no retinopathy to photocoagulation treated proliferative diabetic retinopathy. Patients with macular oedema were specifically excluded from the study. RESULTS: The error scores of both the diabetic (mean 146 (SD 94)) and the non-diabetic patients (83 (79)) did not deviate significantly from the age related normal range. The error score in the diabetic group was significantly higher than in the non-diabetic group (p=0.02) but the amplitude of the difference was small in comparison with previous studies of phakic subjects. The error scores in the diabetic group were not correlated with the degree of retinopathy (p>0.2). CONCLUSION: After cataract surgery only a minor difference exists between the colour vision scores of diabetic and non-diabetic patients. This indicates that accelerated yellowing of the lens in diabetes is the predominant cause of the colour vision anomaly found in phakic diabetic patients. (+info)
Retroillumination versus reflected-light images in the photographic assessment of posterior capsule opacification. (3/105)PURPOSE: To investigate the relative merit of retroillumination and of reflected light slit-lamp-derived photographs in the assessment of the opacification of the posterior lens capsule. METHODS: Retroillumination and slit-lamp-derived reflected-light photographs were taken on 23 consecutive eyes with posterior capsule opacification (PCO) in uncomplicated pseudophakia. Subjective grading was performed on both types of photographs to evaluate the extent and density of posterior capsular opacification. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) before and after YAG laser capsulotomy was used to assess the impact of capsular opacification on visual function. RESULTS: After capsulotomy all patients attained a BCVA > or = 46 letters (> or =20/32) with a mean increase of 25 letters, indicating that PCO was the cause of visual impairment in these patients. The relative capacity of retroillumination and of reflected-light photographs to adequately capture the extent and the severity of posterior capsule opacification varied considerably. Reflected-light images, in addition to frequently producing higher severity scores for the opacity than retroillumination photographs, in 4 of 23 eyes (17.4%) proved to be the only technique able to document the presence of PCO. CONCLUSIONS: Our results indicate that, with respect to retroillumination images, reflected-light photography has an increased ability to adequately capture the presence and the severity of PCO and that the use of only retroillumination images may lead to its underestimation. This may be relevant to clinical studies aiming to evaluate incidence and progression of this condition. (+info)
Is pseudophakic astigmatism a desirable goal? (4/105)PURPOSE: To determine whether pseudophakic astigmatism is a desirable goal, and if so, which one is better: against-the-rule (ATR) or with-the-rule (WTR). METHOD: Eyes were included only if they had an uncorrected vision > or = 6/18 and N/18. Three groups, of 40 patients each were evaluated: group 1, pseudophakes with neutral astigmatism; group 2, with ATR and group 3, with WTR astigmatism Unaided distance and near visual acuity was recorded. Statistical analysis was performed using the chi-square test for independence. RESULTS: Unaided distance vision of > or = 6/7.5 was achieved in 19 eyes (47.5%) of group 1 (neutral), 12 eyes (30%) in group 2 (ATR), and 5 eyes (12.5%) in group 3 (WTR) (p = 0.0133, significant). Unaided near vision of > or = N/9 was achieved in 17 eyes (42.5%) in group 1 (neutral), 34 eyes (85%) in group 2 (ATR), and 10 eyes (25%) in group 3 (WTR) (P < 0.001, significant). Group 1 (neutral) fared the best for unaided distance visual acuity. Group 2 (ATR) was better than in group 3 (WTR) for distant vision. Group 2 (ATR) fared the best for unaided near vision. CONCLUSION: ATR astigmatism could be a desirable goal after cataract extraction in selected populations because the largest proportion of these cases achieved good unaided near vision with acceptable distant vision.

Primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment: 20 years of change. (6/105)AIM: To compare characteristics, management, and outcome of two groups of patients with primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) presenting to the same vitreoretinal unit approximately 20 years apart. METHODS: 124 patients in 1979-80 and 126 cases in 1999 were compared. RESULTS: More cases were pseudophakic and fewer aphakic in 1999 than 1979-80. More cases of giant retinal tear and fewer dialyses were operated on in 1999. Vitrectomy was a primary procedure in 63% of cases in 1999 but only 1% in 1979-80. Anatomical success rates were statistically similar: 79.8% primary and 88.8% final success in 1979-80, and 84% primary and 93.6% final success in 1999. CONCLUSION: Surgical management of primary RRD has changed greatly in 20 years. Success rates have changed little, despite availability of differing surgical techniques. (+info)
The shape of the aging human lens: curvature, equivalent refractive index and the lens paradox. (7/105)Scheimpflug slit images of the crystalline lens are distorted due to the refracting properties of the cornea and because they are obliquely viewed. We measured the aspheric curvature of the lens of 102 subjects ranging in age between 16 and 65 years and applied correction for these distortions. The procedure was validated by measuring an artificial eye and pseudophakic patients with intraocular lenses of known dimensions. Compared to previous studies using Scheimpflug photography, the decrease of the radius of the anterior lens surface with age was smaller, and the absolute value for the radius of the anterior and posterior lens surface was significantly smaller. A slight decrease of the posterior lens radius with age could be demonstrated. Generally, front and back surfaces were hyperbolic. Axial length was measured of 42 subjects enabling calculation of the equivalent refractive index of the lens, which showed a small, but highly significant decrease with age. These new findings explain the lens paradox and may serve as a basis for modelling the refractive properties of the lens. (+info)
Cataract in leprosy patients: cataract surgical coverage, barriers to acceptance of surgery, and outcome of surgery in a population based survey in Korea. (8/105)BACKGROUND/AIMS: Cataract is the leading cause of blindness in leprosy patients. There is no population based information on the cataract surgical coverage, barriers to use of surgical services, and outcome of surgery in these patients. We sought to determine these measures of cataract programme effectiveness in a cured leprosy population in South Korea. METHODS: The population consisted of residents of six leprosy resettlement villages in central South Korea. All residents were invited to participate in a study of eye disease and interviewed regarding use of surgical services and reasons for not using these services. RESULTS: The cataract surgical coverage in this population was 55.4% when <6/18 was used as the cut off and increased to 78.3% when the cut off was <6/60. Barriers reported by patients included being told by the doctor that the cataract was not mature and a perception by the patient that there was no need for surgery. Among patients who had aphakic surgery, 71% were still blind in the operative eye while among patients who had pseudophakic surgery, 14% were still blind (presenting vision). Blindness in pseudophakic patients could be reduced to 3% with spectacle correction. CONCLUSION: Cataract prevalence in leprosy patients will increase as life expectancy continues to increase. Leprosy control programmes will need to develop activities aimed at reducing the burden of cataract. Recommendations include establishing collaborative agreements with ophthalmological services to provide high quality IOL surgery to these patients, training of health staff to identify and refer patients in need of surgery, monitoring the uptake of cataract surgery among patients needing services, and monitoring the outcome of surgery to improve refractive outcome.

BACKGROUND. 1.1 PATHOPHYSIOLOGY. Despite improved cataract surgery instrumentation and techniques, the incidence of clinical CME remains 1 - 3% following uncomplicated PE/PCIOL. CME remains the most common cause of suboptimal post-operative visual acuity (VA) after uncomplicated PE/PCIOL. 1% clinical CME incidence represents 30,000 new cases annually in the USA. Clinical CME is defined as clinically evident CME, with VA typically 20/40 - 20/200. Diagnostic testing can confirm CME by FA leakage and increased CRT on OCT. If left untreated, chronic photoreceptor degeneration and irreversible VA loss can occur, even if the macular edema was to eventually resolve.. 1.2 TREATMENT OF PSEUDOPHAKIC CYSTOID MACULAR EDEMA Several treatment options for CME have been investigated, including topical, oral, periocular and intravitreal corticosteroids. Corticosteroids inhibit phospholipase A2, inhibiting production of arachidonic acid, precursor of the lipo-oxyenase (LOX) and cyclo-oxygenase (COX) pathways. ...

Complications related to the injection procedure of Ozurdex® were particularly misplacements of the implant. In one case, the implant was stuck in the sclera due to early retraction of the needle while injecting. One eye was treated twice by mistake. Post-injectional displacement of the implant was noted under certain risk conditions. Patients after complicated cataract surgery or with special lenses (e.g. iris- or scleral-fixated intraocular lens), an iris defect or vitrectomized pseudophakic patients had a risk for migration of the implant into the anterior chamber (6 cases), with secondary corneal decompensation or resulting in pseudohypopion (2 cases). One patient with an artificial iris and a scleral fixated lens presented with the implant in the posterior chamber and another time in the iridocorneal angle. In one case, the implant split into two parts. One fragment migrated into the anterior chamber, while the other fragment remained in the vitreous. One case with endophthalmitis and four ...

Pseudoaccommodation in children after congenital cataract surgery and implanted with monofocal intraocular lens : incidence and...
Purpose: Some pseudophakic patients implanted with monofocal intraocular lens (IOL) have good near visual acuity with their distance correction. This apparent accommodation has been called "pseudo-accommodation". The objective of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of pseudo-accommodation in children after bilateral congenital cataract surgery, without amblyopia, and to define its mechanisms.. Methods: We included 40 eyes of 23 children aged 6 to 18, with a corrected distance visual acuity above 8/10 and a normal near visual acuity (P2) with +3 addition. We also included a group of 14 pseudophakic adults, with a corrected distance visual acuity superior to 8/10 and a normal near visual acuity (P2) with +3 addition. Pseudo-accomodation was defined as a near visual acuity better than P4 with the distance correction and without addition. Prevalence of pseudo-accommodation was calculated in each group. In order to determine the factors accounting for pseudo-accommodation in children, we ...
CRSToday | Unhappy With Pseudophakic Monovision
Recent advances in refractive surgery have broadened its reach. Monovision has been a successful approach to achieving both distance and near vision for many presbyopic LASIK patients. That said, monovision LASIK is not a perfect solution, because it requires certain compromises. In particular, as the eye ages and presbyopia increases, the patient develops an increased need for near vision. In short, monovision LASIK is a static solution to a dynamic problem. Monovision LASIK patients pose a specific set of challenges when they present with cataracts. Many had success with monovision while they retained a certain baseline of accommodation. Because a monofocal IOL yields no accommodation, however, they may not attain the same result in a monofocal pseudophakic state. The functional range of vision in a monofocal pseudophakic eye is less than in a phakic eye, because the latter has some baseline amplitude of accommodation.. A multifocal lens can be considered in a situation like this, but again, ...
Pseudophakic Vision with residual ametropia after pilocarpine 2% instillation
Discussion. Topical pilocarpine 2% is a parasympathomimetic drug with direct cholinergic action on the muscarinic receptors and smooth muscles of the iris and ciliary body. This drug causes the contraction of the pupil by increasing the tension in the scleral spur and providing the opening of the spaces of the trabecular meshwork. It is traditionally used to reduce the intraocular pressure in the treatment of glaucoma,(1) and for increased salivation in patients with Sjogrens Syndrome.(2) Recent articles show the use of topical pilocarpine for pupillary manipulation in order to reduce the positive and negative dysphotopies in pseudophakic patients in the postoperative cataract surgery.(3,4) The effect of pilocarpine for this purpose comes from the miosis and creation of a pupillary pinhole excluding the peripheral rays in the formation of the image and improving the depth of focus. As the central light rays suffer less aberrations, they provide greater sharpness of the images formed. In cases ...

Transthyretin levels in the vitreous correlate with change in visual acuity after vitrectomy | British Journal of Ophthalmology
Background/aim: Little is known about biochemical markers related to change in visual acuity after vitrectomy. The potential use of transthyretin (TTR), a carrier of the retinol/retinol-binding protein, as a biochemical marker protein, was investigated.. Methods: TTR was measured using immunonephelometry in a group of patients (n = 77) in longstanding (,1 week) retinal detachment (n = 29), fresh (,1 week) retinal detachment (n = 17), macular holes (n = 20) or diabetic retinopathy (n = 11). Vitreous samples were taken at the start of every vitrectomy procedure. For reference values, cadaver specimens (n = 73) were used.. Results: Reference values for vitreous TTR (median 18 mg/l; IQR 4 to 24 mg/l) comprised 2.2% of reference values for vitreous protein levels (median 538 mg/l; IQR 269 to 987 mg/l). Vitreous TTR values of patients were comparable in all disorders. Vitreous TTR values were higher in phakic (median 22.5 mg/l; IQR 10 to 27 mg/l) than in pseudophakic patients (median 12 mg/l; IQR 8 to ...

In this prospective study we enrolled 30 consecutive pseudophakic patients (30 eyes) with uncontrolled glaucoma under maximum tolerated medical treatment and without any previous filtering surgery. We performed a 360° treatment using the Ellex Solo laser system. Mean IOP measurements were carried out month 1, month 6 and month 12 post-laser treatment. Glaucoma stage was classified according to visual field loss as early, moderate or advanced. A range of target IOP was determined for each glaucomatous eye and used as an absolute success criterion. An IOP ...

All of the pseudophakic subjects were controlled according to the hospital records and divided into two groups according to the IOL haptic design as single piece and three piece hydrophobic acrylic type. Group 1 consist of 35 subjects with single-piece IOL and group 2 consist of 30 subjects with three-piece IOL. Measurements with the Sirius topographer were performed for anterior segment analysis. Data for the posterior cornea, anterior lens, anterior chamber, anterior chamber angle and iris are obtained from Scheimpflug images These examinations and were performed before, one week and one month after Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy ...
Aspiring for zero tolerance of residual astigmatism | OphthalmologyTimes
When considering premium surgeries and high expectations from patients along with an unrelenting quest for vision exceeding 20/20, the tolerance of residual astigmatism must be zero. Like bespoke tailors, ophthalmologists need to be bespoke surgeons who tailor vision in each eye to the highest level possible.

When considering premium surgeries and high expectations from patients along with an unrelenting quest for vision exceeding 20/20, the tolerance of residual astigmatism must be zero. Like bespoke tailors, ophthalmologists need to be bespoke surgeons who tailor vision in each eye to the highest level possible. We cannot claim to design the best suit using the best technology and tailoring materials, and yet, in our minds, find it "acceptable" to have the suit length within a half-inch to three-quarters of an inch too short or wide. ...

In their letter to the editor, De Roo and colleagues1 present results from complementary experiments. Inclusion of an extended range of analytes and an additional cohort of pseudophakic controls (Edemapsph), composed of eyes diagnosed with graft failure or pseudophakic bullous keratopathy, allow for a more detailed analysis. The authors confirm the results from our study with respect to elevated aqueous MCP-1 expression in pseudophakic FECD eyes and demonstrate increased expression of aqueous IL-8 after cataract surgery.1 Their results describe increased TGF-β2 levels in phakic FECD patients compared with phakic (cataract) controls and increased TGF-β2 levels in pseudophakic FECD patients compared with pseudophakic controls (Edemapsph).1 Moreover, they find increased TGF-β3 expression in the aqueous humor of phakic FECD eyes compared with all three other groups.1 ...

OCT Detects ERM Better Than Fundus Imaging
Researchers in France have determined that SD-OCT examinations for epiretinal membranes (ERM) are feasible in an elderly population. Their study determined that the modality was more sensitive in ERM detection than standard 45° retinal color photographs, especially when detecting them in the early stages.. Out of 624 participants who were at least 75 years old and underwent both fundus imaging and SD‐OCT examinations, 610 (97.8%) subjects had gradable SD‐OCT examinations and 511 (81.9%) had gradable fundus images in at least one eye. Based on the fundus photographs, 11.6% of participants had definite ERMs. However, the SD‐OCT images revealed that 52.8% of the subjects had early ERMs (stage 1), 7.4% had mature ERMs without foveal involvement (stage 2) and 9.7% had mature ERMs with foveal alterations (stage 3).. Regardless of the imaging method used, the researchers discovered ERMs more often in pseudophakic eyes than in phakic eyes. While the specicity of the retinal images was good ...

Are monovision contact lenses difficult to get used to? | Firmoo Answers
With monovision contacts, the two eyes still work together as a team to see clearly at all distances; its just that one eye is clearer than the other, and the stronger eye will depend on whether you are looking at something far away or up close. Though monovision might sound difficult to adjust to, most people adapt very well and eventually dont even notice which eye is their distance eye and which is their near eye.

The schematic itself lists all the specific parts we used. In your project, you probably wont be making the complete design. Just build out parts of the design and customize it as per your needs. As for the numbers of things like resistors, we chose values as we built out the design bit by bit , adjusting to get ranges within the limits of each stage. Just start small and build out one stage at a time.. Good luck ...

The process of structure formation is indeed nontrivial, as clamtrox says, but I think there are some simple concepts that should help elucidate things. They key here is scale. All of the fluctuations seen in the CMB today were once outside our cosmological horizon (they were stretched to superhorizon scales during inflation.) Fluctuations on superhorizon scales do not evolve, because their wavelengths span acausal distances. Once inflation ended and the universe began to evolve according to standard radiation-dominated FRW cosmology, these fluctuations began to fall back inside the horizon. Once inside, they suddenly come back to life, causally evolving according to all the gory laws of general relativistic fluid dynamics. Initially these fluctuations oscillate, because the photons and baryons are still tightly bound when the smallest scale fluctuations begin to enter the horizon (the largest scales are still way outside). These are the famous acoustic oscillations seen in the CMB from ...
Prevalence of cystoid macular oedema, epiretinal membrane and cataract in retinitis pigmentosa | British Journal of...
The burden of blindness from inherited retinal dystrophies such as RP is increasing,1 due partly to the lack of effective treatments for this group of disorders. A number of sight impairing complications are associated with RP, and vision outcome may be improved when these complications are identified and treated. We report that in a hospital-based sample of 169 patients with RP (338 eyes), the prevalence of CME, ERM, cataract and pseudophakia in eyes was 50.9%, 22.8%, 23.4% and 13.6%, respectively. If one eye had an RP complication, the other eye was also highly likely to be involved (,70%). These data suggest a relatively high prevalence of potentially treatable complications and suggests it is worthwhile screening patients with RP, including with OCT, regularly to detect these conditions.. Our prevalence findings for CME are similar to the higher estimates reported by other investigators. A trial of 39 patients by Adackapara et al 8 recruited to test the efficacy of lutein supplements in RP ...
Lasik Eye Surgery • View topic - Getting Used to Residual Astigmatism
My vision is still fluctuating, and has improved recently to the point that Ive decided to forego the contacts analysis for the time being. I have not been able to tolerate contacts in the last few years (hence the decision to do Lasik) and would prefer not to be forced into them now if I can help it. If my vision gets to the point in the future that I think a corrective lense of some sort is necessary to function, Ill reschedule the appointment to test hard contacts. Ive already been told that I am not a candidate for an additional flap lifting procedure; and am maybe (though the doctor was hestitant about it) a candidate for a surface procedure ...
1) Monovision 2) Photo theme - The Obnoxious 5xmom
I have monovision. Not, it doesnt describe my way of thinking. What it means is I only use one eye to see things. Maybe thats why I only see things my way? Hmmmm…probably.. You see, I had been wearing spectacles from as young as 9 years old. It is in the genes. All smart people wear glasses. (And some people even purposely wear glasses to look smart!) If your kid has bad eyesight, it doesnt mean you are a bad parent. It is in the genes. There is nothing you can do to prevent it. No amount of carrots can help. Carrots or Vit. A only prevent night blindness. Not short-sightedness (where those things in the distance appears blur).. Short-sightedness happens when you grow too fast and your eyeballs dont grow at the same time and rate. It is corrected by contact lenses for me. And now, at my age, my eyeballs are shrinking and I cannot see my own pores, bulu-bulu, small letterings etc. So, one good optemerist who is also part of my parenting group told me about monovision.. I resorted to ...
