[NEW LENSES IN MODERN CATARACT SURGERY].

Harefuah 2019 Feb;158(2):126-129

Department of Ophthalmology, Meir Medical Center, Kfar Saba, Affiliated to Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Introduction: During cataract surgery the natural opaque crystalline lens is replaced by an artificial intraocular lens that compensates for the optical loss following lens removal. The conventional intraocular lens is mono-focal and necessarily requires spectacle correction for the clear vision at various foci in the same eye. In recent years a variety of intraocular lenses were developed including multifocal (bifocal and trifocal), "toric" lenses to correct corneal astigmatism, lenses with extended depth of focus and their combinations.

[CHILDHOOD GLAUCOMA].

Harefuah 2019 Feb;158(2):115-120

Department of Ophthalmology, Lady Davis Carmel Medical Center, Haifa.

Introduction: "Childhood glaucoma" is a heterogenic group of diseases, characterized by elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) associated with optic-disc damage and other ocular comorbidities. Diagnosis requires two or more of the following: elevated IOP, optic nerve damage, enlarged cornea or Descemet's membrane ruptures, enlarged eye, high myopia and visual field defects. Childhood glaucoma is classified as primary if it occurs as an isolated ocular disease, and secondary, when the disease occurs along with other ocular anomalies or systemic diseases such as Neurofibromatosis and Sturge-Weber, or with acquired conditions such as uveitis complications, ocular trauma, cataract surgery, as well as from systemic and ocular steroid use.

Preclinical Safety Evaluation of Ophthalmic Viscosurgical Devices in Rabbits and a Novel Mini-Pig Model.

Ophthalmol Ther 2019 Feb 18. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Biological Sciences, Johnson & Johnson Surgical Vision, Inc., Santa Ana, CA, USA.

Introduction: To establish the preclinical safety and equivalency of ophthalmic viscosurgical devices (OVDs) comprised of bacterially sourced sodium hyaluronate (HA) to animal sourced HA using pyrogenicity and aqueous exchange models in rabbits and a novel mini-pig model to evaluate corneal endothelial cell protection in vivo.

Methods: HEALON OVD and HEALON5 OVD containing animal-derived HA and HEALON PRO OVD and HEALON5 PRO OVD containing bacterial-derived HA were used. Two rabbit aqueous exchange studies were conducted where aqueous humor was exchanged with OVDs in six animals each to observe potential ocular inflammation, intraocular pressure (IOP) response, corneal health and pachymetry until 7 days post procedure, as well as overall assessment of the OVDs.

Pinhole pupilloplasty: Small-aperture optics for higher-order corneal aberrations.

J Cataract Refract Surg 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Dr. Agarwal's Eye Hospital and Research Centre, Chennai, India.

This technique of performing pinhole pupilloplasty helps filter the straylight from the periphery of the cornea in cases with higher-order corneal aberrations. The pinhole effect blocks distorted and unfocused light rays and isolates more focused central and paracentral rays through the central aperture, thereby reducing aberrations of the optical system as a whole and enhancing visual acuity and its image quality.

Structure of G57W mutant of human γS-crystallin and its involvement in cataract formation.

J Struct Biol 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Electronic address:

A recently identified mutant of human γS-crystallin, G57W is associated with dominant congenital cataracts, the familial determinate of childhood blindness worldwide. To investigate the structural and functional changes that mediate the effect of this cataract-related mutant to compromise eye lens transparency and cause lens opacification in children, we recently reported complete sequence-specific resonance assignments of γS-G57W using a suite of heteronuclear NMR experiments. As a follow up, we have determined the 3D structure of γS-G57W and studied its conformational dynamics by solution NMR spectroscopy. Read More

The evolution of the anterior capsulotomy.

Wideochir Inne Tech Maloinwazyjne 2019 Jan 16;14(1):12-18. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

Arnott Eye Associates, Optegra Eye Hospital London, London, United Kingdom.

The paper describes the development of the anterior capsulotomy from its early crude beginnings in the 18 century to the possibility of automated surgery today via continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis (CCC). The reasons for the opening of the capsule have changed from a roughly made tear to allow access to the nucleus for its extraction, to the creation of more regular openings to allow support for intraocular lenses. With the development of continuous circular tears it was possible to be certain to contain the intraocular lens (IOL) in the capsular bag. Read More

Using smartphone-delivered stereoscopic vision in microsurgery: a feasibility study.

Eye (Lond) 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Ophthalmology Department, Singleton Hospital, Sketty Lane, Sketty, Swansea, SA2 8QA, UK.

Background: Many surgical specialties are increasingly looking towards robot-assisted surgeries to improve patient outcome.

Purpose: To describe the prevalence of visually significant cataract in Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

Methods: A total of 3098 non-Indigenous Australians aged 50 years and over and 1738 Indigenous Australians aged 40 years and over, residing in 30 randomly selected Australian sites, were examined as part of the population-based National Eye Health Survey (NEHS). For those with visual acuity worse than 6/12, photos of the anterior and posterior segment were taken with a nonmydriatic fundus camera and assessed for cataract. Read More

Antidepressants, Mood Stabilizers, Antipsychotics, and the Risk of Cataract.

J Clin Psychiatry 2019 Jan 29;80(1). Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Department of Psychopharmacology, National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences, Bangalore, India.

Cataract is a common disease of the eye, and depression is common in patients with cataract. This raises the possibility that depression and the drugs used to treat depression may be risk factors for cataract. In a recent systematic review and meta-analysis of 7 case-control studies with a pooled sample of 447,672 cases and 1,510,391 controls, antidepressant drugs were associated with a very small but statistically significant increase in the risk of cataract; the odds ratios for different classes of antidepressants were in the 1.

Department of Ophthalmology, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Purpose: To analyze the positional relationships of various centers in patients undergoing femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS).

Methods: The locations of the pupil center (PC), limbal center (LC) and lens center were analyzed in each patient using optical coherence tomography during FLACS in 35 eyes of 35 patients. Using the preoperative corneal aberrometry device, angle kappa and the location of the visual axis (VA) were calculated. Read More

Int J Med Sci 2019 1;16(2):198-202. Epub 2019 Jan 1.

Department of Ophthalmology, Fourth Affiliated Hospital of Kunming Medical University (the Second People's Hospital of Yunnan Province); Yunnan Eye Institute; Key Laboratory of Yunnan Province for the Prevention and Treatment of ophthalmology (2017DG008); Provincial Innovation Team for Cataract and Ocular Fundus Disease, The Second People's Hospital of Yunnan Province (2017HC010); Expert Workstation of Yao Ke (2017IC064), Kunming 650021, China.

Myopia is an important public health problem due to its prevalence and significant public health cost. Elevating levels of myopia increase the risk of vision impairment, and therefore, high myopia has become one of the main causes of untreatable vision loss throughout the world due to its irreversible complications. At present, many options for slowing progression of myopia have already been proposed and evaluated such as progressive addition of executive bifocal spectacle lenses, peripheral defocusing lenses, overnight orthokeratology, pharmacological agents such as atropine eye drops, and multifocal soft contact lenses (MFSCLs).
