Cataract surgery in patients taking Tamsulosin is regarded as more challenging for the surgeon because Intraoperative Floppy Iris Syndrome (IFIS) might occur. However, the question is whether this as any practical implication for the outcomes of surgery. In this study we investigate whether cornea is damage during surgery on Tamsulosin patient. In an observational study 30 cataract patients taking Tamsulosin is compared to 30 patients not taking Tamsulosin, but otherwise similar. Number of patients is based on power calculation.
Cornea is examined by specular microscopy.

cataracts could be cured with eye drops. Some studies reported that in chronic renal failure, the occurrence of cataract is rare and the mechanism is unknown. The aim of this research is t...
This study is the long term analysis of two types of FSL 3-plane corneal wound profiles, namely CT1 and CT2 obtained after a FSL cataract surgery.
The use of one dose of an antibiotic and steroid injected into the eye at the end of cataract surgery is as safe and effective as the post operative use of eyedrops after cataract surgery.
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" ...

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)
