Use of Prophylactic Lubricating Drops After Cataract Surgery

2019-10-24 12:49:52 | BioPortfolio


This is a randomised controlled trial to assess the use of prophylactic lubricant eye-drops for 6 weeks following uncomplicated, routine cataract surgery to improve patient satisfaction and symptoms of dry eye, compared to controls.


On entry into the study patients will be randomized to receive either lubricant eye-drops (phosphate-free, preservative-free lubricant eye drops containing 0.15% Sodium Hyaluronate with vitamins A and E (AEONTM Repair) to be administered four times a day for 6 weeks following surgery (in addition to the usual post-operative topical medications of Chloramphenicol 0.5 % eye drops for 1 week and topical dexamethasone 0.1% eyedrops (Maxidex) four times a day for 4 weeks) or no additional lubricant drops in addition to the usual medications described above

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The reconstruction of a continuous two-stranded DNA molecule without mismatch from a molecule which contained damaged regions. The major repair mechanisms are excision repair, in which defective regions in one strand are excised and resynthesized using the complementary base pairing information in the intact strand; photoreactivation repair, in which the lethal and mutagenic effects of ultraviolet light are eliminated; and post-replication repair, in which the primary lesions are not repaired, but the gaps in one daughter duplex are filled in by incorporation of portions of the other (undamaged) daughter duplex. Excision repair and post-replication repair are sometimes referred to as "dark repair" because they do not require light.

The administration of therapeutic agents drop by drop, as eye drops, ear drops, or nose drops. It is also administered into a body space or cavity through a catheter. It differs from irrigation in that the irrigate is removed within minutes, but the instillate is left in place.

Operations carried out for the correction of deformities and defects, repair of injuries, and diagnosis and cure of certain diseases. (Taber, 18th ed.)

Syndromes which feature DYSKINESIAS as a cardinal manifestation of the disease process. Included in this category are degenerative, hereditary, post-infectious, medication-induced, post-inflammatory, and post-traumatic conditions.

Intraoperative computer-assisted 3D navigation and guidance system generally used in neurosurgery for tracking surgical tools and localize them with respect to the patient's 3D anatomy. The pre-operative diagnostic scan is used as a reference and is transferred onto the operative field during surgery.
