Summary of "Cataract Surgery in Very Old Patients."

In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of very old patients requiring a cataract operation. However, there is little information on the intraoperative complications and safety in these patients. For various reasons, operations on patients from age 85 may be demanding: dense nuclear cataract, narrow pupils, low count of endothelial cells, loose zonula, and other ocular or systemic diseases. The aim of this retrospective study was to compare very old to younger cataract patients with respect to intraoperative complications and the maturity of the cataract.

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.
