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...
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...
the investigators will compare between the endothelial cell loss after phacoemulsification and extracapsular cataract extraction in management of senile cataract
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 purpose of this study is to record and analyze the profile and outcome of cataract patients receiving phacoemulsification (phaco) and artificial intraocular lens (IOL) implantation wit...
Not every cataract needs phacoemulsification. One problem is the terminological differentiation between "physiological loss of transparency due to ageing" and "cataract". In case of a "real cataract" ...
Age-related cataract is the principal cause of blindness and visual impairment in the world. Phacoemulsification is the main surgical procedure used to treat cataract. The comparative effectiveness an...
To study the correlation between postoperative corneal edema and endothelial cell loss after cataract surgery by microcoaxial phacoemulsification.
To compare the safety and outcomes of femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery and conventional phacoemulsification in post-vitrectomy eyes.
To determine whether preoperative adjustments are required for intraocular lens calculations in combined phacovitrectomy surgery.
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)
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)
Presence of an intraocular lens after cataract extraction.
The removal of a cataractous CRYSTALLINE LENS from the eye.
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, ...
