PURPOSE To study the intraoperative performance and postoperative outcomes of Cionni modified capsule tension ring (CTR) and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in the capsular bag in pediatric eyes with ectopia lentis. SETTING John A. Moran Eye Center, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. METHODS Thirty-five eyes (22 children) with ectopia lentis and visually(More)
A survey of the complications associated with foldable intraocular lenses (IOLs) that required explantation or secondary intervention was sent to members of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery and was also available to members of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons. Preoperative data about visual acuity, patient(More)
PURPOSE To report 10 cases of delayed-onset acute intraocular inflammation following cataract extraction and posterior chamber implantation of the MemoryLens(R) intraocular lens (IOL). SETTING John A. Moran Eye Center, Department of Ophthalmology, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. METHODS This retrospective study evaluated 10 cases of(More)
A dense interlenticular opacification developed 18 months after cataract surgery in a hyperopic patient with 2 acrylic piggyback intraocular lenses (IOLs) placed in the capsular bag. The patient developed a hyperopic shift with decreased vision, requiring explantation of the lenses. The dense interlenticular opacification did not allow separation of the(More)
This is the first reported case of delayed-onset postcataract endophthalmitis caused by Mycobacterium goodii, confirmed by multiple cultures. The patient had uneventful cataract removal by phacoemulsification with implantation of a posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL). One month later, he developed redness, pain, a hypopyon, and a decrease in visual(More)
PURPOSE To compare glistening formation induced by temperature stressing in vitro among hydrophobic acrylic intraocular lenses (IOLs) available in the United States. SETTING John A. Moran Eye Center, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. METHODS Wagon Wheel (WW) packaged 1-piece AcrySof IOLs (Alcon), WW-packaged 3-piece AcrySof IOLs, and Sensar(More)
PURPOSE To compare the 3-year performance of the 3-piece AcrySof (Alcon) and the SI-40 silicone (Allergan) intraocular lenses (IOLs). SETTING John A. Moran Eye Center, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. METHODS In this retrospective study, patients with no complications and at least a 3-year follow-up after IOL implantation were examined for(More)
At age 5, a patient underwent fundus photography that disclosed elevated optic discs without drusen. A head computed tomography did not show optic nerve calcification. At age 9, no disc drusen were evident by ophthalmoscopy, but a CT now showed optic nerve calcification. At age 12, optic disc drusen were faintly evident on photographs; visual fields showed(More)
