Eye drops are specifically used to protect the eyes from infection, soothe itching, relieve redness and reduce the inflammation associated with the healing process.
Symptomatic vitreous opacities are increasingly recognized as a significant burden to patient well-being. There is growing interest in the use of vitrectomy or laser treatment to address these problems.
Despite substantial improvements in cataract surgery techniques and intraocular lenses (IOLs), posterior capsular opacification (PCO) continues to be the most frequent postoperative complication of pediatric cataract surgery.
The challenge of calculating the appropriate intraocular lens (IOL)power after previous refractive surgery such as radial keratotomy (RK)or laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) remained unresolved forthe past two decades.
Although the benefits of sustained-release dexamethasone go well beyond their eliminating need for opioid medications after cataract surgery, avoiding opioids is still a strong and important reason surgeons should consider embracing use of the insert.
Low-concentration N2O anesthesia may not cause respiratory depression, abnormal vital signs, or nausea in cataract surgery. It can suppress intraoperative anxiety and memory and decrease and stabilize vital signs.
Dislocated intraocular lens (IOL) is a rare, yet serious complication whereby the intraocular lens moves out of its normal position in the eye. IOL dislocation has been reported at a rate of 0.2% to 3%.
The risk factors for development of endophthalmitis after cataract surgery have been identified as complex cataract procedures, the performance of simultaneous vitreous procedures, a history of diabetic macular edema or proliferative diabetic retinopathy,
Research shows a link between vision loss and dementia. Recent research has noted a link between age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, or diabetes-related eye disease and dementia.
Diabetic retinopathy can be broadly divided into two categories: background diabetic retinopathy and proliferative diabetic retinopathy. One of the key differentiating factors is the presence of harmful neovascularization.
