OBJECTIVE To compare effective phacoemulsification time after femtosecond laser pretreatment with conventional phacoemulsification and the associated effect on visual outcomes and endothelial cell loss. DESIGN Prospective, consecutive, single-surgeon case-control study. CONTROLS Controls underwent phacoemulsification cataract extraction plus insertion(More)
BACKGROUND The authors present a clinicopathological report of their initial experience with perfluorohexyloctane (F6H8), a novel semifluorinated liquid fluorocarbon developed as a long-term vitreous substitute. METHODS A retrospective observational review was performed of five patients in whom F6H8 had been used for management of rhegmatogenous retinal(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the long-term visual outcome and the complication rate following transscleral suture fixation of posterior chamber intraocular lenses (sutured PC-IOLs). DESIGN A retrospective case-series descriptive study. METHODS Records of patients who underwent combined pars plana vitrectomy and sutured PC-IOLs at Moorfields Eye Hospital and(More)
The effective early application of a cyanoacrylate glue corneal patch can aid in the management of small corneal perforations, corneal melts and wound leaks. Their use gives improved visual outcomes with reduced enucleation rates (6% vs 19%). It may also avoid the need for tectonic penetrating keratoplasty. Cyanoacrylate glue prevents re-epithelialization(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the incidence of anterior capsular tears after femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) versus phacoemulsification cataract surgery (PCS) and to assess the ultrastructural features of anterior capsulotomy specimens (FLACS and PCS) using electron microscopy. DESIGN Prospective, multicenter, comparative cohort case series. (More)
PURPOSE To undertake safety testing of infracyanine green (IFCG) in a cell culture model. METHODS Experiments were undertaken in a cell culture model used previously to perform safety testing of indocyanine green (ICG). Human retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and Müller cells were exposed to IFCG for 5 minutes, over a range of concentrations up to 0.5%.(More)
The case is reported of a 31-year-old man with a retained metallic intraocular foreign body (IOFB) in the left eye who underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for investigation of a subsequent unrelated brachial plexus injury Despite the patient providing good history of IOFB, the decision to proceed with MRI was based on screening orbit X-ray which was(More)
Sympathetic ophthalmia is a rare and potentially visually devastating bilateral panuveitis, typically following non-surgical penetrating injury to one eye. Three patients are presented where sympathetic ophthalmia developed after repeated vitreoretinal surgery. Prompt and effective management with systemic immunosuppressive agents permitted control of their(More)
PURPOSE To describe an Australian pedigree of European descent with a variable autosomal dominant phenotype of: pediatric cortical cataract (CC), asymmetric myopia with astigmatism, familial exudative vitreoretinopathy (FEVR), and primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). METHODS Probands with CC, FEVR, and POAG were enrolled in three independent genetic eye(More)
