PURPOSE To determine how often the empty-bag technique (EBT) for injecting an acrylic foldable intraocular lens (IOL) into the capsular bag using Healon5 (sodium hyaluronate 2.3%) will require a 2-compartment technique to remove the ophthalmic viscosurgical device (OVD) and compare this with that of a standard injection method using Healon5.

A 3-step technique for staining the anterior lens capsule was developed to optimize the use of a capsule dye (trypan blue or indocyanine green) during capsulorhexis. After the injection of a viscoadaptive ophthalmic viscosurgical device (OVD) (sodium hyaluronate 2.3% [Healon 5]), which fills the anterior chamber, balanced salt solution (BSS) is gently(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the results of implantation of a modified capsular tension ring (MCTR) and a posterior chamber intraocular lens (PC IOL) in patients with congenitally subluxated crystalline lenses. SETTING Cincinnati Eye Institute, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. METHODS Ninety eyes of 57 patients with congenital loss of zonular support (Weill-Marchesani(More)
PURPOSE To determine the incidence of anterior capsule tears, at what stage of surgery they occurred, and their intraoperative behavior. SETTING Ambulatory surgery center, Cincinnati Eye Institute, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. METHODS This 5-year retrospective study was of patients having phacoemulsification with posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL)(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the distance, intermediate and near visual acuity of patients with bilateral cataract operated on both eyes corrected for distance in one eye and for near in the fellow eye, as well as, their stereo acuity and their general satisfaction. SETTINGS Hospital de Olhos de São Paulo and Complexo Hospitalar Padre Bento - Guarulhos - São Paulo(More)
Cataract surgery has evolved dramatically over the last two decades, largely as a result of technological advances. As a result, visual outcomes and patient convalescence have improved significantly. A second consequence of increased instrumentation and technology, however, is increased complexity of cataract surgery and the advent of complications unique(More)
Report of a complication related to the use of 0.1% trypan blue during capsular staining of the anterior crystalline lens capsule in an extracapsular cataract extraction with intraocular lens implantation. The capsular dye was injected using an air-bubble technique, inadvertently, it was done using high pressure dispersing the dye through the zonules(More)
The authors report a recent complication during the postoperative period of cataract surgery. A patient was submitted to cataract surgery in both eyes with IOL implantation (Sensar) inside the capsular bag. The postoperative period of right eye was uneventful, however, in the left eye the patient noted a dark shadow at the temporal visual field at the first(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the behavior of the modified capsular tension ring (MCTR) in traumatic subluxated cataracts analyzing the visual acuity, centration of the capsular bag, pseudophacodonesis, postoperative follow-up and intra- and postoperative complications. SETTING Cincinnati Eye Institute, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. METHODS Twenty-two eyes of 22(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the indications for intraocular lens (IOL) exchange, interval between the first IOL implantation and the exchange, type and mix of IOLs used, effect on vision, and frequency of complications. SETTING Cincinnati Eye Institute-Cincinnati-Ohio-USA. METHODS This retrospective study comprised 49 eyes of 49 adult patients who had IOL(More)
