PURPOSE To determine the short-term outcomes in eyes with posterior capsule rupture (PCR) during cataract surgery. SETTING The Eye Institute, National Healthcare Group, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Singapore, Singapore. METHODS All intraoperative complications during cataract surgery were reported prospectively as part of a clinical audit program. The(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to determine if racial differences exist in the rate of posterior capsule rupture (PCR) during cataract surgery in Singapore. MATERIALS AND METHODS All intraoperative complications during cataract surgery were prospectively reported as part of a clinical audit programme. A retrospective review of all patients who(More)
This is a retrospective study of 56 corneal grafts that was done in the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) between 1980 and 1989. These cases were analysed and it was found that there was a male predominance of about 2:1. There was a rather even spread among the various age groups except for a slightly higher incidence in the 20-29 year age group. There was a(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE A prospective, randomized, double-blind study was conducted to compare sub-Tenon's anesthesia with retrobulbar anesthesia. PATIENTS AND METHODS One hundred six patients undergoing cataract extraction received either sub-Tenon's anesthesia (55 patients) or retrobulbar anesthesia (51 patients). The number of injections required,(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the subjective visual experience of patients during phacoemulsification and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation using retrobulbar anesthesia. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Singapore. METHODS Seventy cataract patients who had routine phacoemulsification and posterior chamber IOL implantation under(More)
Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus (HZO) is not an uncommon condition in the elderly and the immunocompromised. The common ocular manifestations include blepharoconjunctivitis, keratitis and uveitis. Dramatic presentations like orbital apex syndrome and superior orbital fissure syndromes occur rarely in patients with herpes zoster meningo-encephalitis. We report a(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the subjective visual experience of patients during cataract surgery under retrobulbar anaesthesia. METHODS One hundred cataract patients who underwent routine extracapsular cataract extraction and intraocular lens implantation under retrobulbar anaesthesia were interviewed by the authors on the same day after their operation(More)
PURPOSE To review the visual and surgical outcome of planned intracapsular cataract extraction (ICCE) and anterior chamber intraocular lens (AC IOL) implantation for subluxated crystalline lenses. METHODS Eight eyes of 7 patients with subluxated lenses which underwent planned ICCE, AC IOL implantation and peripheral iridectomy by one surgeon between(More)
Permanent visual loss is a well established major sequela of idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH). It is often insidious and frequently unnoticed by patients with IIH. It is vital to monitor these patients with serial perimetric and visual acuity tests because visual loss can be halted and occasionally reversed if treatment is begun early. We report a(More)
PURPOSE To describe the clinical features of two cases of intraoperative capsular block syndrome (CBS) mimicking expulsive hemorrhage. SETTING The Eye Institute at Tan Tock Seng Hospital, National Healthcare Group, Singapore. METHODS Two case reports. RESULTS Two patients underwent phacoemulsification under retrobulbar anesthesia and developed severe(More)
