PURPOSE To study changes in anterior segment morphometry after uneventful phacoemulsification cataract surgery, and to investigate whether there is a relationship between any observed changes and intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction after the procedure. METHODS The anterior chamber depth (ACD), anterior chamber volume (ACV), anterior chamber angle (ACA),(More)
BACKGROUND To describe clinical outcomes in a series of patients with tractional cystoid macular edema, a variant of vitreomacular traction syndrome. METHODS Twelve consecutive patients (15 eyes) with tractional cystoid macular edema of maximum diameter of ≤550 μm and presenting corrected-distance visual acuity of ≤0.3 (Snellen ≥20/40) were studied. Each(More)
OBJECTIVES To report changes in perceived visual functioning after surgery for symptomatic cataract with preoperative corrected distance visual acuity [CDVA] of 0.4 logMAR or better (Snellen equivalent, 20/50) and to investigate the relationship between any observed changes and preoperative physical characteristics and psychophysical consequences of the(More)
PURPOSE To investigate whether psychophysical, morphological, and/or optical characteristics of symptomatic non-advanced cataract are complementary to, or more appropriate than, visual acuity (VA) for the purposes of recording visual data that reflect subjective visual difficulty in patients with cataract that exhibit relative sparing of high contrast(More)
PURPOSE To quantify the effect on refractive outcomes after cataract surgery of personalization of Haigis intraocular lens (IOL) constants for a given surgeon-IOL combination. SETTING Institute of Eye Surgery and Institute of Vision Research, Whitfield Clinic, Butlerstown North, Waterford, Ireland. METHODS Personalization of Haigis IOL constants was(More)
PURPOSE To report the impact of posture-related ocular cyclotorsion on one surgeon's surgically induced astigmatism (SIA) results and the variance in SIA. SETTING Institute of Eye Surgery, Whitfield Clinic, Waterford, Ireland. METHODS This prospective randomized controlled study included eyes that had phacoemulsification with intraocular lens(More)
PURPOSE To report the value of dual biometry in the detection of biometry errors. METHODS Study 1: retrospective study of 224 consecutive cataract operations. The intraocular lens power calculation was based on immersion biometry. Study 2: immersion biometry was compared with optical coherence biometry (OCB) in terms of axial length, anterior chamber(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the validity of a keratometry (K)-independent method of estimating effective lens position (ELP) before phacoemulsification cataract surgery. SETTING Institute of Eye Surgery, Whitfield Clinic, Waterford, Ireland. DESIGN Evaluation of diagnostic test or technology. METHODS The anterior chamber diameter and corneal height in eyes(More)
