Recent Trends in Cataract Management (Volume 1)

by Amar Agarwal, Arnaldo Espaillat Matos, Richard Lindstrom

The book World Clinics in Ophthalmology Recent Trends in Cataract Management covers new advances in diagnosis and treatment of cataract. Cataract surgery techniques have a goal of implanting IOL to reduce small incision cataract surgery. ICCE and ECCE techniques are used for development and refinement of cataract removal. Postoperative inflammation and severe ocular complications have been minimized. The designs of IOLs have been developed that provide improved biocompatibility and reduce the late capsular opacification that can threaten postoperative visual acuity. Refractive lens surgery techniques have as their goal the complete elimination of the need for a post cataract surgery spectacle whether by means of multifocal IOLs, accommodative IOLs, toric IOLs, and femtosecond laser technology. MICS technique has the advantage of preventing induced astigmatism and wound complications. Meticulous surgical technique and decision-making, combined with the proper IOL power selections will help surgeons achieve the desired result. The majority of surgeons would probably be adopting microcoaxial surgery as standard procedure for cataract phacoemulsification.
