Refractory cystoid macular oedema due to intraocular lens haptic perforating the iris.

Summary of "Refractory cystoid macular oedema due to intraocular lens haptic perforating the iris."

Cystoid macular oedema is a well-known complication of cataract surgery associated with intraocular lens decentration or dislocation. A 55-year-old man, who had undergone a phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation surgery two months previously was referred because of reduced vision in the right eye. Ocular examination revealed that one of the haptics had perforated the iris at 6 o'clock. There was cystoid macular oedema of the right eye. A topical non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug, followed by intravitreal injections did not produce a significant regression. Finally, the haptic was repositioned surgically and the macular oedema dramatically resolved. Correct placement of the intraocular lens might avoid post-operative complications including cystoid macular oedema.

Treatment of cystoid macular edema secondary to chronic non-infectious intermediate uveitis with an intraocular dexamethasone implant.

To evaluate the use of a slow-release dexamethasone 0.7-mg intravitreal implant for cystoid macular edema (CME) secondary to intermediate uveitis and refractory to systemic steroids.

A Study Investigating a Possible Link Between Lens Protein in the Vitreous Fluid of Eyes After Uncomplicated Cataract Surgery and Chronic Cystoid Macular Edema.

This study aimed to determine if the lens protein aquaporin 0 (AQP0) is present in the vitreous of pseudophakic eyes of patients presenting with chronic cystoid macular edema (CME).

LENS CAPSULAR FLAP TRANSPLANTATION IN THE MANAGEMENT OF REFRACTORY MACULAR HOLE FROM MULTIPLE ETIOLOGIES.

To report the clinical results of lens capsular flap transplantation in refractory macular hole (MH).

Clinical Outcomes and Capsular Bag Stability of a Four-Point Haptic Bitoric Intraocular Lens.

To evaluate the visual, refractive, and aberrometric outcomes of a bitoric intraocular lens (IOL) and its stability and alignment within the capsular bag.

Macular cystoid spaces in patients with retinal dystrophy.

Non leaking macular cystoid spaces (MCS) are seen in some retinal dystrophies. Carbonic anhydrase inhibitor (CAI) treatment may reduce the size of MSC and improve vision.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fluid accumulation in the outer layer of the MACULA LUTEA that results from intraocular or systemic insults. It may develop in a diffuse pattern where the macula appears thickened or it may acquire the characteristic petaloid appearance referred to as cystoid macular edema. Although macular edema may be associated with various underlying conditions, it is most commonly seen following intraocular surgery, venous occlusive disease, DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, and posterior segment inflammatory disease. (From Survey of Ophthalmology 2004; 49(5) 470-90)

Insertion of an artificial lens to replace the natural CRYSTALLINE LENS after CATARACT EXTRACTION or to supplement the natural lens which is left in place.

Lenses, generally made of plastic or silicone, that are implanted into the eye in front of the natural EYE LENS, by the IRIS, to improve VISION, OCULAR. These intraocular lenses are used to supplement the natural lens instead of replacing it.
