A perspective of contemporary cataract surgery: the most common surgical procedure in the world
TLDR
Clinicians and scientists in New Zealand / Aotearoa have contributed significantly to the global knowledge of cataract surgery, including aspects of indications for surgery, assessment and use of specialised intraocular lenses, effect of surgical techniques on corneal structure and performance, training ofCataract surgeons, intraoperative and post-operative complications.
Effects of cataract surgery in Japanese patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration
TLDR
Cataract surgery significantly improved vision in Japanese patients with nAMD, without affecting AMD status, and univariate and multivariate analyses revealed that final BCVA ≤ 0.3 logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution was significantly associated with patient satisfaction.
Current Trends in the Pharmacotherapy of Cataracts
TLDR
This review focuses on the role of various categories of natural and synthetic compounds on experimentally-induced cataracts, including plant extracts and naturally-occurring compounds, and the majority of the anti-cataract compounds lies in their antioxidant and/or free radical scavenging and/ or anti-inflammatory propensity.
Research Progress of Drug Prophylaxis for Lens Capsule Opacification after Cataract Surgery
TLDR
This article is a systematic interpretation and elaboration about how to prevent lens capsule opacification after cataract surgery via different drugs.
Resident Performed Sutureless Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery (MSICS): Outcomes
TLDR
The ophthalmic resident learning curve for manual small incision cataract surgery is steep, unlike what is reported in the literature, and a good training program with a special emphasis on wound construction is of paramount importance for future residents.
Effect of cataract surgery on vision-related quality of life among cataract patients with high myopia: a prospective, case-control observational study
TLDR
VR-QOL is significantly impaired in cataract patients with HM and is remarkably improved byCataract surgery, which is greater than that in normal AL cases.
Changing practice patterns in European cataract surgery as reflected in the European Registry of Quality Outcomes for Cataract and Refractive Surgery 2008-2017.
TLDR
Trends in European cataract surgery practice patterns from 2008 to 2017 have moved toward younger patients with better preoperative visual acuity, fewer surgical complications, and better predicted refractions and visual outcomes.
Advanced ophthalmic nurse practitioners: the potential to improve outcomes for older people with cataracts.
TLDR
How the AONP is well-placed to provide high quality care to the older person who requires cataract surgery is explored, and professional drivers for role development are explored.
Toric Intraocular Lens Implantation in the Correction of Moderate-To-High Corneal Astigmatism in Cataract Patients: Clinical Efficacy and Safety
TLDR
The results from this study show that toric IOL implantation is a safe and effective option for cataract patients with moderate-to-high corneal astigmatism and provided optimal vision outcomes and low spectacle dependence during a one-year follow-up period.
