Effectiveness of different silicone oil remove methods after vitrectomy and light silicone oil tamponade in elderly patients.

Ann Palliat Med 2020 May 8. Epub 2020 May 8.

Department of Ophthalmology, Liuzhou Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Liuzhou 545006, China.

Background: During the remove of oil from the silicone oil-filled eye after vitrectomy, perfusion fluid is often mistakenly aspirated when mechanical force is used to remove the oil. This leads to a sudden sharp drop in intraocular pressure and collapse of the eyeball, which may cause complications. The aspiration of perfusion fluid can be detected when the oil is removed manually, and the force of the hand and location of the aspiration can be adjusted to remove the silicone oil instead.

Efficacy of 0.5% Levofloxacin and 5.0% Povidone-Iodine Eyedrops in Reducing Conjunctival Bacterial Flora: Metagenomic Analysis.

J Ophthalmol 2020 17;2020:1780498. Epub 2020 Apr 17.

State Key Laboratory Cultivation Base, Shandong Provincial Key Laboratory of Ophthalmology, Shandong Eye Institute, Shandong First Medical University and Shandong Academy of Medical Sciences, Qingdao 266071, China.

Bacteria associated with postoperative endophthalmitis mostly originate from the normal bacterial flora of the patient's conjunctiva and eyelids, so the incidence of endophthalmitis may be reduced by eliminating the ocular and adnexal flora before surgery. We assessed the effectiveness of eyedrops of 0.5% levofloxacin and 5. Read More

In our study, 41 consecutive cases of posteriorly dislocated IOLs were surgically treated between January 2015 and May 2017. Six of the cases were post-traumatic luxations, and 20 patients had pseudoexfoliation syndrome. Read More

Toric intraocular lens versus limbal relaxing incisions for corneal astigmatism after phacoemulsification.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019 12 17;12:CD012801. Epub 2019 Dec 17.

London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, Cochrane Eyes and Vision, ICEH, Keppel Street, London, UK, WC1E 7HT.

Background: Cataract is the leading cause of blindness in the world, and clinically significant astigmatism may affect up to approximately 20% of people undergoing cataract surgery. Pre-existing astigmatism in people undergoing cataract surgery may be treated, among other techniques, by placing corneal incisions near the limbus (limbal relaxing incisions or LRIs) or by toric intraocular lens (IOLs) specially designed to reduce or treat the effect of corneal astigmatism on unaided visual acuity.

Objectives: To assess the effects of toric IOLs compared with LRIs in the management of astigmatism during phacoemulsification cataract surgery. Read More

Ophthalmology, Dr Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, Delhi, India.

is a low-virulence gram-negative bacillus known to cause various ocular infections such as endophthalmitis, panophthalmitis and keratitis that are usually associated with an underlying risk factor such as peri-partum or postpartum phase, cataract surgery, contact lens use, neurotrophic keratopathy or ocular trauma. We report a case of spontaneously occurring perforated corneal ulcer caused by the organism in a young man managed by penetrating keratoplasty. The course was followed by endophthalmitis with graft infection culminating in phthisis bulbi despite aggressive medical and surgical management. Read More

Drop-free approaches for cataract surgery.

Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2020 Jan;31(1):67-73

Departments of Ophthalmology and Quality, Shorstein - Kaiser Permanente, Oakland, California; Department of Ophthalmology, Myers - Northwestern University, Chicago, IL.

Purpose Of Review: Routine prophylaxis for adverse events following cataract surgery is evolving. Prior reliance on topical eyedrop instillation by patients is giving way to surgeon directed injections at the time of cataract surgery. The benefit of this new approach is assured delivery of drugs in standardized doses which should optimize the healing process and reduce the incidence of untoward events with higher confidence.

Can cryotherapy be used as an adjunct in select cases of recalcitrant endophthalmitis? - A case report.

Indian J Ophthalmol 2019 11;67(11):1894-1896

Vitreoretina and Uveitis Services, LV Prasad Eye Institute, Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, India.

We report two cases of recalcitrant endophthalmitis, a delayed postoperative fungal endophthalmitis following cataract surgery and an atypical mycobacterial endogenous endophthalmitis associated with infective scleritis. Due to recalcitrant nature of the endophthalmitis, one or more sittings of double freeze and thaw cryotherapy was applied over and adjacent to the infective foci in each case. This cryotherapy was used as an adjunct alongside conventional endophthalmitis management following which resolution of infection was observed in both cases. Read More
