OBJECTIVE We present a prospective, non-comparative case series study of 126 consecutive diode laser-assisted transcanalicular dacryocystorhinostomy (TCL-DCR) procedures on 122 patients. We analyzed success rate, procedure time and amount of laser energy needed for a 5 mm osteotomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred and twenty-two patients with(More)
Pre-existing scleral pathology is an important risk factor for globe rupture during scleral buckling procedures. We report here, the surgical management of an unexpected scleral pathology found at the scleral buckling procedure in a retinal detachment patient. A 77-year-old white female with retinal detachment underwent a scleral buckling procedure. The(More)
SUMMARY Posterior capsule opacification (PCO) is the most common visually disabling consequence of modern cataract surgery and has important medical, social and economic implications 1. The reported incidence of PCO varies widely. Analysis of multiple reports has found the visually significant PCO rate overall to be approximately 28% at 5 years 2. At(More)
BACKGROUND Posterior capsule opacification (PCO) is the most common post-operative complication associated with cataract surgery and is mostly treated with Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy. Here, we demonstrate the use of high-resolution spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) as a technique for PCO analysis. Additionally, we evaluate the influence of(More)
