AIMS To study the refractive outcome of cataract surgery employing IOLMaster biometry data and to compare it with that of applanation ultrasonography in a prospective study of 100 eyes that underwent phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation. METHODS The Holladay formula using IOLMaster data was employed for the prediction of implanted(More)
OBJECTIVE Superior conjunctival graft is commonly used in pterygium surgery, which may adversely affect the outcome of future filtration surgery. We retrospectively studied the success rate of inferior conjunctival autografting for primary pterygia in our unit. DESIGN A noncomparative, retrospective, interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS Thirty eyes(More)
BACKGROUND The single optical cylinders used in the osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis (OOKP) are known to produce very small visual fields. Values of 40 degrees are typically quoted. The purpose of this paper is to present designs for new optical cylinders that significantly increase the field of view and therefore improve the visual rehabilitation of patients(More)
PURPOSE The number of very elderly patients waiting for cataract surgery is predicted to increase. The aim of our study was to determine the clinical outcome following cataract surgery in this age group. METHODS In this retrospective study, patients aged 96 years and above, who underwent cataract surgery between June 1993 and January 2001, were(More)
AIM To determine the long term visual and refractive results, and stability and complications of primary polypseudophakia using poly(methylmethacrylate) (PMMA) intraocular lenses (IOLs) for cataract surgery in hypermetropic eyes. METHODS Prospective study of 15 short or hypermetropic eyes undergoing phacoemulsification with primary polypseudophakia with(More)
PURPOSE To describe the anterior chamber migration of a fluocinolone acetonide (Iluvien) implant in the context of previous vitrectomy and complicated cataract surgery. METHODS Retrospective observational case series. Two patients with a history of vitrectomy and complicated phacoemulsification surgery, one of whom had pseudoexfoliation. RESULTS The(More)
AIMS To study the long term toxic effects of intraocular benzalkonium chloride (BAC). METHODS 19 patients exposed to intraocular BAC preserved viscoelastic during cataract surgery in February 1999 developed severe striate keratopathy immediately postoperatively. 16 patients, including two who underwent penetrating keratoplasty, were studied in the period(More)
AIMS To study the effect of flap thickness on the visual and refractive outcome of myopic laser in situkeratomileusis (LASIK) surgery. METHODS A total of 196 myopic eyes with spherical equivalent (SE) from -2.00 to -5.00 dioptres which underwent LASIK were studied retrospectively. Uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA), best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and(More)
A 36-year-old woman with high myopia had uneventful implantation of a phakic refractive lens (PRL) bilaterally. Two months postoperatively, the best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) in the right eye decreased to the preoperative level and the posterior chamber PRL disappeared from the anterior segment and was found lying in the vitreous cavity inferiorly.(More)
