PURPOSE To report relationship of age group and axial length (AL) category to lens thickness values in eyes with a clear lens or different types of isolated cataract (nuclear, cortical, and posterior subcapsular (PSC)). Further, we evaluated lens thickness values on anterior chamber depth (ACD) in these eyes. DESIGN Observational clinic-based(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the intraoperative performance and postoperative outcomes after microcoaxial phacoemulsification. SETTING Iladevi Cataract & IOL Research Centre, Ahmedabad, India. METHODS A prospective observational case series comprised 84 eyes with age-related uncomplicated cataract having microcoaxial phacoemulsification through a 2.2 mm clear(More)
UNLABELLED Management of the posterior capsule significantly affects the outcome of pediatric cataract surgery. Posterior capsule opacification (PCO) is rapid and virtually inevitable in very young children when adult-style cataract surgery is performed and the posterior capsule is left intact. In eyes with pediatric cataract, primary posterior capsulotomy(More)
PURPOSE To analyze factors contributing to uncorrected visual acuity of at least 6/12 for distance and at least J4 for near (pseudoaccommodation) after monofocal intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. SETTING Iladevi Cataract and IOL Research Center, Ahmedabad, India. METHODS In a case-controlled study of 30 eyes (30 patients) that had(More)
UNLABELLED The surgical management of cataract in the small eye presents the ophthalmic surgeon with numerous challenges. An understanding of the anatomic classification in addition to a thorough preoperative assessment will help individualize each case and enable the surgeon to better prepare for the obstacles that might be encountered during surgery.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the rotational stability of a toric intraocular lens (IOL) using purpose-designed software and to determine the influence of axial length (AL) and in-the-bag IOL alignment on IOL rotation. SETTING Iladevi Cataract & IOL Research Centre, Ahmedabad, India. DESIGN Prospective observational case series. METHODS This study enrolled eyes(More)
AIM To determine the association between pseudoexfoliation (PEX) and peripheral vascular disease (PVD) among age-related cataract. SETTING Iladevi Cataract and IOL Research Center, Ahmedabad, India. MATERIAL AND METHODS An observational age-matched case-control study of 160 patients over 60 years of age with age-related cataract. A total of 40 subjects(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether anterior vitrectomy is necessary when optic capture is performed in children between 5 and 12 years old with congenital cataract. SETTING Iladevi Cataract and IOL Research Center, Ahmedabad, India. METHODS This prospective randomized controlled study comprised 41 eyes of 25 children whose mean age was 83.57 months (range 60(More)
We evaluated 21 eyes of 13 infants between two and eight months old who had primary posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) implantation for congenital cataracts between 1988 and 1993. Twelve eyes had a posterior capsulorhexis or plaque peeling at the time of implantation and one eye had a vitrectomy. Eight eyes had no posterior capsule procedure during(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Pediatric cataract surgery remains a very important and difficult problem to manage. While dramatic advances have occurred in this field over the past 10 years, some technical aspects of surgery, changing refraction and functional outcome continue to pose significant problems. The aim of the present review is to update the reader on(More)
