The purpose of the study is to determine whether combined cataract and glaucoma surgery (phacotrabeculotomy)is more effective in lowering intraocular pressure than cataract surgery alone in patients with borderline control of intraocular pressure.

The aim of this study is to compare the effectiveness and safety of combined phacoemulsification, posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation , trabeculectomy (phacotrabeculectomy) wit...
To compare the short-term astigmatic outcomes of phacoemulsification cataract surgery and intraocular lens implantation using temporal versus nasal clear corneal incisions.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of staged and combined phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation and Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplast...
This is a randomised controlled clinical trial to compare laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI) and primary phacoemulsification with intra-ocular lens implantation (phaco/IOL) in the treatment ...
This was a prospective, double-masked, 15-month clinical trial comparing efficacy of phacoemulsification alone to combined phacoemulsification and implantation of the iStent® trabecular m...
To compare effective lens position (ELP) after phacoemulsification between micro-incision (2.25 mm) and small-incision (2.75 mm) groups.
To investigate preoperative ocular risk factors and indications for secondary intraocular lens (IOL) implantation and compare postoperative complications, visual and refractive outcomes in a tertiary ...
To compare the clinical outcomes and vision-related quality of life after implantable collamer lens (ICL) implantation for younger patients (17 years ≤ age ≤21 years) and for older patients (age >...
To investigate the impact of the orientation of preoperative corneal astigmatism on achieving the postoperative target refraction following monofocal intraocular lens (IOL) implantation.
To introduce a simple, modified technique for easier enclavation of retropupillary iris claw intraocular lens (IOL) in patients requiring secondary intraocular lens implantation.
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.
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.

Endometrial implantation of EMBRYO, MAMMALIAN at the BLASTOCYST stage.
Delay in the attachment and implantation of BLASTOCYST to the uterine ENDOMETRIUM. The blastocyst remains unattached beyond the normal duration thus delaying embryonic development.
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...
