Astigmatism is a condition that prevents the eye from consistently focusing light in all directions. This highly common condition is induced by an abnormal curvature of the lens or the eye itself, resulting in more of a football shape instead of a
Intraoperative optical coherence tomography (iOCT) is a noninvasive imaging modality that provides a real-time dynamic feedback of the various surgical steps.
The main purpose of cataract surgery with phacoemulsification is to surgically remove the lens that develops cataract and thus to achieve the best visual acuity and to maintain visual function with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL).
Congenital cataracts and childhood cataracts are not very common. However, in the event that a child or infant has cataracts, it is not easy to predict how much their vision will be improved after the treatment.
The benefits of 3D visualization in cataract surgery include improved ergonomics, high magnification optics, digital guidance systems that can be implemented in association with it, as well as collaboration with colleagues and educating residents and fell
Lens fragmentation of a dense cataract requires a lot more phaco energy to emulsify the hard nucleus. More energy increases the risk of damage to corneal endothelial cells, which in turn can cause postoperative complications.
An impaired ocular surface adversely affects preoperative planning for cataract surgery, including intraocular lens (IOL) calculations, toric IOL axis and magnitude estimates, keratometry, and topography measurements. It also increases surgical difficulty
Cataract and glaucoma are leading causes of blindness all over the world (51 and 8%, respectively), that frequently coexist in the same eye.
Suprachoroidal hemorrhage (SCH) is a rare but devastating complication associated with incisional intraocular surgery as well as trauma. Characterized as a sudden and rapid accumulation of blood within the suprachoroidal space
Anterior subcapsular cataracts (ASC) form after anterior lens epithelial cells become necrotic from a variety of causes including iritis, keratitis, inflammation associated with atopic dermatitis, irradiation, or electrical burns.
