PURPOSE OF REVIEW This review will focus on identifying causes of zonulopathy during cataract surgery and discuss various modalities for treatment. RECENT FINDINGS There are multiple different options for capsular bag support in the setting of zonulopathy, including capsular or iris hooks, capsular tension rings as well as capsular tension segments (CTS). Surgical techniques on how to insert these devices are many and can be customized based upon the surgeon's preference and the patient's eye an...

Purpose of review null Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) has been shown to be safe and effective in treatment of mild to moderate glaucoma in adults, but reports in childhood glaucoma are limited. We review the available data concerning MIGS and discuss its potential role in childhood glaucoma management. null Recent findings null Ab interno counterparts to circumferential ab externo trabeculotomy such as gonioscopy-assisted transluminal trabeculotomy (GATT) and Trab360 show promise in ...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Retained lens fragments are a relatively rare occurrence after cataract surgery. While no definite guidelines for the surgical management or timing of surgery of this complication exist, surgery is indicated for patients with large lens fragments, persistent inflammation, secondary glaucoma, corneal edema, retinal tears or detachments, and associated endophthalmitis. The aim of this review is to summarize the current surgical management of retained lens material. RECENT FINDING...

Purpose of review null Late-onset Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy (FECD) is seen in approximately 4% of individuals over the age of 40. With the growing population of adults over the age of 65, ophthalmologists need to be aware of the preoperative, perioperative, and postoperative considerations involved in cataract surgery in Fuchs patients. null Recent findings null Management of cataract patients with FECD requires preoperative assessment of endothelial cell size, density, and morphology....

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Here, we provide an overview of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease (VKH), including recent updates in our understanding of disease pathophysiology, classification and therapeutics. RECENT FINDINGS Advancements in bioinformatics, metabolomics and genomics investigations continue to illuminate VKH pathogenesis, and may provide insight into future therapeutic options. Multimodal imaging is indispensable in the initial evaluation of VKH, and is becoming increasingly important in understa...

Purpose of review null The novel coronavirus disease in 2019 (COVID-19) has a wide range of systemic manifestations. Ocular manifestations are now well recognized, with conjunctivitis being the most common. Posterior segment involvement is uncommon and has mainly been described in case reports. This review provides an overview of the posterior segment involvement of COVID-19. null Recent findings null Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 affects the retina and the choroid through eith...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Endophthamitis following intraocular surgery is rare using current antiseptic techniques, such as single application of 5% povidone-iodine to the ocular surface and adjuvant topical or intracameral antibiotics. Challenges remain, however, including increased multidrug-resistant bacterial endophthalmitis, increased fungal endophthalmitis, and the low but nonzero endophthalmitis rate attributable to the typical bacteria that colonize the ocular surface. RECENT FINDINGS: Povidone...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Given the impact that society as a whole, and medicine specifically, has experienced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, an examination of clinical care changes enacted in the field of ophthalmology is of interest to the specialty. RECENT FINDINGS: In order to adapt to the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, measures, such as broadening telehealth capabilities, adopting universal masking, careful sanitation procedures, applying virtual teaching in academic environments, and de...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Successful anterior capsulotomy is an important step in cataract surgery. This article reviews the various anterior capsulotomy techniques available to surgeons to optimize the step, including those that have become available since the introduction of femtosecond-laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS). Studies comparing the relative advantages of each technique will be emphasized. RECENT FINDINGS Manual continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis (CCC) and FLACS remain the two most w...
