Sustained-release dexamethasone intracanalicular insert provided effective inflammation prevention, compared with standard steroid therapy.
Even without a MIGS device, surgery-naive patients who underwent phaco-ECP can experience an IOP drop of 26%, a report suggests.
Patients with diabetes had an increased dementia risk if they also had diabetic retinopathy, compared with those without it.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetes-related eye disease (DRED), and cataract are associated with an increased risk for incident dementia.
The two device types demonstrated equal reductions in IOP and medication use.
The research shows cataract removal had a temporary positive effect on CT, and no effect on FT.
A study shows visual acuity 6 months after endophthalmitis following keratoprosthesis implantation correlates with pre-endophthalmitis acuity.
Following bilateral cataract surgery, patients who received round-edged IOLs experienced more posterior capsule opacification.
While the combined approach does reduce intraocular pressures, circadian rhythm cannot be changed by the surgery.
Experts say anxiety-reduction involves individualization, approachability, and partnership.
A large study shows that years after surgery, the lenses did not lead to differences in macular disease rates.
Postoperative complications were not linked with cataract versus noncataract surgery.
Researchers investigated the impact pseudophakic monovision has on risk of falls.
In a 10-year follow-up of AREDS 2 participants, symptoms of CBS were associated with late AMD and cataract surgery, but normal cognition.

Postoperative cataract surgery NSAID monotherapy compares well with combination treatment with steroid, or dropless surgery.
For patients undergoing uncomplicated cataract surgery, a combination of prednisolone and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) eye drops is not superior to NSAID monotherapy, and initiating prophylactic treatment three days before surgery is no better than on the day of surgery.
