Fixation of Subluxated Intraocular Lens

Fixation of Subluxated Intraocular Lens

Fixation of Subluxated Intraocular Lens Cataract surgery is the most common operation performed by ophthalmologists. Although it has a very high success rate, certain complications may occur. Intraocular lens (IOL) malpositions range from simple IOL decentration to luxation into the posterior segment. Subluxated IOLs involve such extreme decentration that the IOL optic covers only a small fraction of the pupillary ... Read More »

ECCE for Subluxated Hypermature Cataract

ECCE for Subluxated Hypermature Cataract A Morgagnian cataract arises when a cortical cataract becomes hypermature. A cortical cataract is an opacity of the lens cortex or periphery of the lens. An early cortical cataract is often clinically diagnosed by spoke-like or wedge-shaped opacities of the lens, most commonly in the inferior quadrants. As the cataract matures, the lens fibers degenerate, ... Read More »

Phacoemulsification of white cataract

Phacoemulsification of white cataract

Phacoemulsification of white cataract Phacoemulsification (Phaco) is the most common technique used by developed countries. It involves the use of a machine with an ultrasonic handpiece equipped with a titanium or steel tip. The tip vibrates at ultrasonic frequency (40,000 Hz) and the lens material is emulsified. A second fine instrument (sometimes called a “cracker” or “chopper”) may be used from ... Read More »

Snail-track capsulorhexis in intumescent cataract

Snail-track capsulorhexis in intumescent cataract

Snail-track capsulorhexis in intumescent cataract Two-stage continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis helps prevent unexpected radial tears of the initial capsulotomy from high intracapsular pressure, sudden radialization of the CCC and other intraoperative complications due to high intracapsular pressure, thus providing a safe cataract surgery in cases of white cataracts. These findings were supported by ultrasonography.   Source:Ophthalmology Videos Snail-track capsulorhexis in intumescent ... Read More »
