PURPOSE Retained lens fragments after cataract surgery is an infrequent, but potentially serious surgical complication. The aim of this study is to evaluate outcomes after vitrectomy has been performed for removal of retained lens material. METHODS A retrospective review was conducted to evaluate all cases of pars plana vitrectomy for removal of retained(More)
PURPOSE To compare the efficacy of behavior activation (BA) + low vision rehabilitation (LVR) with supportive therapy (ST) + LVR to prevent depressive disorders in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). DESIGN Single-masked, attention-controlled, randomized, clinical trial with outcome assessment at 4 months. PARTICIPANTS Patients with(More)
PURPOSE The authors evaluated factors that might influence the outcome of extracapsular cataract extraction with placement of a posterior chamber lens in patients with diabetic retinopathy. The factors included patient age and sex, severity of the retinopathy, preoperative laser photocoagulation, vitrectomy, and posterior capsulotomy. METHODS The records(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW The purpose of this review is to summarize current research findings regarding relationships between depression and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). RECENT FINDINGS The current literature indicates that the prevalence of depression among patients with AMD is fairly high (approximately 30%) and that depression is a major cause of(More)
Retinal reattachment rates and visual results were analyzed in 227 consecutive primary pseudophakic rhegmatogenous retinal detachments. The overall anatomic reattachment rate was 90%, with no significant difference between the anterior chamber (AC) and posterior chamber intraocular lens groups. Visual results were significantly worse in the AC lens group (P(More)
CONTEXT Age-related macular degeneration is a prevalent disease of aging that may cause irreversible vision loss, disability, and depression. The latter is rarely recognized or treated in ophthalmologic settings. OBJECTIVE To determine whether problem-solving treatment can prevent depressive disorders in patients with recent vision loss. DESIGN(More)
OBJECTIVES To report the prevalence rate of depression in older patients with recent vision loss due to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and to describe the effect of depression on self-reported vision function during 6 months. METHODS Prospective cohort study of 51 older patients with recent-onset bilateral AMD attending the Retina Clinic of Wills(More)
Twenty-two infants with "threshold" stage 3+ retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) were entered into a prospective, randomized clinical trial to compare the efficacy of transscleral cryotherapy versus laser photocoagulation delivered by the indirect ophthalmoscope. Eighteen infants have been followed for at least 3 months. Fifteen of 16 eyes randomized to laser(More)
Twenty-two eyes with traction retinal detachment (RD) secondary to retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in 21 infants were treated by scleral buckling in combination with external cryotherapy and drainage of subretinal fluid. Anatomic reattachment of the retina was achieved in 13 (59%) of 22 eyes. Of those patients achieving anatomic reattachment with follow-up(More)
