To examine the outcomes of phacoemulsification cataract surgery in eyes with herpes zoster-related keratitis and/or uveitis and evaluate the risks for recurrent disease.
To evaluate the surgical outcomes of cyclodialysis cleft repair and cataract management by phacoemulsification combined with internal tamponade using a modified capsular tension ring (MCTR) compared w...
To assess the risks of intra- and postoperative bleeding tendency associated with cataract surgery by phacoemulsification in patients on coumadin and antiaggregant treatments. Design: Con...
Posterior capsule opacification (PCO) and glistenings development is among the primary reasons for sub-optimal visual capacity following cataract extraction surgery. Primary objective of t...
The study design will be a prospective study comparing laser-assisted cataract extraction cases and traditional manual phacoemulsification cases. All cases will be performed by faculty-sup...
Phacoemulsification in eyes with a shallow anterior chamber (ACD < 2.2mm) presents with problems of safe access to the cataract and increased vulnerability of the endothelium and a higher ...
Although phacoemulsification in previously vitrectomized eyes is a relatively safe procedure comparing with extracapsular cataract surgery, it is still more challenging than in eyes withou...
The making of a continuous circular tear in the anterior capsule during cataract surgery in order to allow expression or phacoemulsification of the nucleus of the lens. (Dorland, 28th ed)
A procedure for removal of the crystalline lens in cataract surgery in which an anterior capsulectomy is performed by means of a needle inserted through a small incision at the temporal limbus, allowing the lens contents to fall through the dilated pupil into the anterior chamber where they are broken up by the use of ultrasound and aspirated out of the eye through the incision. The small incision allows the surgeon to use very few or even no stitches to close the tiny wound. There is usually no need for hospitalization and patients may resume most activities within days. (Cline, et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed & In Focus 1993;1(1):1)
Complications that affect patients during surgery. They may or may not be associated with the disease for which the surgery is done, or within the same surgical procedure.
Partial or complete opacity on or in the lens or capsule of one or both eyes, impairing vision or causing blindness. The many kinds of cataract are classified by their morphology (size, shape, location) or etiology (cause and time of occurrence). (Dorland, 27th ed)
An institutional policy of granting authority to health personnel to perform procedures on patients or to remove organs from cadavers for transplantation unless an objection is registered by family members or by the patient prior to death.

Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that is devoted to the study and treatment of eye diseases. As well as mild visual defects correctable by lenses, ophthalmology is concerned with glaucoma, uveitis and other serious conditions affecting the eye, ...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
