[Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment : Epidemiology and risk factors].

Ophthalmologe 2018 02;115(2):163-178

Univ.-Klinik für Augenheilkunde und Optometrie, Medizinische Universität Innsbruck, Anichstr. 35, 6020, Innsbruck, Österreich.

The incidence of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment in the European population is approximately 10 cases per 100,000 inhabitants per year and reaches a peak in the 6th and 7th decades of life, mostly in atemporal association with posterior vitreous body detachment. Known risk factors include myopia and higher axial length of the eye, male gender, previous trauma and vitreoretinal degeneration or dystrophy. In recent years, an increase in the risk of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment following cataract surgery was also found, especially after capsule rupture and vitreous body loss. Read More

Mini-review: Far peripheral vision.

Vision Res 2017 11 11;140:96-105. Epub 2017 Sep 11.

Simpson Optics LLC, 3004 Waterway Court, Arlington, TX 76012, United States. Electronic address:

The region of far peripheral vision, beyond 60 degrees of visual angle, is important to the evaluation of peripheral dark shadows (negative dysphotopsia) seen by some intraocular lens (IOL) patients. Theoretical calculations show that the limited diameter of an IOL affects ray paths at large angles, leading to a dimming of the main image for small pupils, and to peripheral illumination by light bypassing the IOL for larger pupils. These effects are rarely bothersome, and cataract surgery is highly successful, but there is a need to improve the characterization of far peripheral vision, for both pseudophakic and phakic eyes.

Refractive lens exchange.

Surv Ophthalmol 2014 Nov-Dec;59(6):579-98. Epub 2014 May 9.

Clinical Department of Ophthalmology, Silesian University of Medicine, SPSK nr 5, Katowice, Poland; Technical University of Czestochowa, Institute of Physics, Faculty of Materials Processing Technology and Applied Physics, Czestochowa, Poland.

Advances in small incision surgery have enabled cataract surgery to evolve from being concerned primarily with the safe removal of the opaque crystalline lens to a procedure refined to yield the best possible postoperative refractive result. As the outcomes of cataract surgery have improved, the use of lens surgery as a refractive modality in patients without cataracts (clear lens extraction) has increased in popularity. The removal of the crystalline lens for refractive purposes, or so-called refractive lens exchange (RLE), offers distinct advantages over corneal refractive surgery in selected cases. Read More

Department of Ophthalmology, Middelheim, Antwerp, Belgium.

Late capsular bag distension syndrome occurs most of the time with the accumulation of opaque milky fluid behind the IOL, without refractive change, like in one of our cases. The other case that we will describe had an accumulation of a clear fluid behind the IOL with an induced hyperopia. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first published report of capsular bag distension syndrome with a shift towards hyperopia. Read More

Unilateral lens extraction for high anisometropic myopia in children and adolescents.

J AAPOS 2007 Apr 30;11(2):153-8. Epub 2006 Nov 30.

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, St. Louis Children's Hospital at Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Missouri 63110, USA.

Introduction: A subpopulation of children with anisometropic myopia, amblyopia, and neurobehavioral disorders is noncompliant with spectacle wear and ill-suited to correction using contact lenses. We report the results of refractive surgery in a series of these children treated using lensectomy alone (clear lens extraction) or lensectomy with simultaneous implantation of an intraocular lens (refractive lens exchange).

Methods: Clinical course and outcome data were collated retrospectively in a group of 7 children and adolescents (mean age, 9. Read More

Lens epithelial apoptosis and cell proliferation in human age-related cortical cataract.

Eur J Ophthalmol 2005 Mar-Apr;15(2):213-20

Department of Ophthalmology, Hippocration General Hospital, Athens, Greece.

Purpose: To probe the presence of apoptosis in the epithelium of human lenses with age-related cortical cataract as well as to assess cell proliferation, a predicted consequence of apoptotic cell death, in this specific cell population.

Methods: DNA fragmentation was assessed using terminal digoxigenin-labeled dUTP nick end labeling (TUNEL) in capsulotomy specimens obtained from patients who underwent either extracapsular cataract extraction for the removal of adult-onset cortical cataract (n=27) or clear lens extraction for the correction of high myopia (n=25). Cell proliferation was assayed in 23 epithelia of cataractous lenses, and 20 epithelia of non-cataractous lenses with the proliferation marker MIB1, a monoclonal antibody against the nuclear antigen Ki-67 that is detected throughout the cell cycle but is absent in the resting (G0) cell.

Phakic intraocular lenses and refractory lensectomy for myopia.

Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2002 Aug;13(4):264-70

Wilmer Eye Institute, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland 21287-9121, USA.

Phakic intraocular lens implantation (IOLs) and clear lens extraction for high to extreme myopia have grown in popularity recently as a consequence of potentially unsatisfactory results with corneal refractive surgery in higher ranges of refractive errors. The refractive outcome of these alternative modalities has been encouraging to date, yet the potential for significant complications exists. Current evidence shows that the risk of retinal detachment after clear lens extraction for myopes is high. Read More
