Purpose To describe current cataract surgery practices within the United States Veterans Health Administration (VHA). Setting Veterans Health Administration hospitals in the U.S. Design Retrospective data analysis. Methods An initial e-mail containing a link to an anonymous 32-question survey of cataract surgery practices was sent to participants in May 2016. Two reminder e-mails were sent to nonresponders 1 week and 2 weeks after the initial survey was sent; the remaining nonresponders were cal...

Topic To investigate the efficacy and safety of femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) relative to manual cataract surgery (MCS). Clinical Relevance It is unclear whether FLACS is more efficacious and safe relative to MCS. Methods A literature search of MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Scopus from 2007 to March 2016 was conducted. Studies containing both FLACS and MCS arms that reported on relevant efficacy and/or safety parameters were included. Weighted mean differences (WMDs) and risk ratios...

Background Cataract is the leading cause of blindness in the world, and cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed operations in the Western world. Preferred surgical techniques have changed dramatically over the past half century with associated improvements in outcomes and safety. Femtosecond laser platforms that can accurately and reproducibly perform key steps in cataract surgery, including corneal incisions, capsulotomy and lens fragmentation, are now available. The potential ad...

Purpose To identify safety and effectiveness outcomes of office-based cataract surgery. Each year, approximately 3.7 million cataract surgeries in the United States are performed in Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) and Hospital Outpatient Department (HOPD) locations. Medicare in July 2015 published a solicitation for expert opinion on reimbursing office-based cataract surgery. Design Large-scale, retrospective, consecutive case series of cataract surgeries performed in Minor Procedure Rooms (MPRs...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) versus conventional phacoemulsification cataract surgery (CPCS) in the treatment of cataract. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were searched in PubMed, Embase and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials. Nine qualified studies with a total of 989 eyes were included. Compared with CPCS, FLACS significantly reduced mean phaco energy and effective phacoemulsification ti...

BackgroundRoutine preoperative testing is not recommended for patients undergoing cataract surgery, because testing neither decreases adverse events nor improves outcomes. We sought to assess adherence to this guideline, estimate expenditures from potentially unnecessary testing, and identify patient and health care system characteristics associated with potentially unnecessary testing. MethodsUsing an observational cohort of Medicare beneficiaries undergoing cataract surgery in 2011, we determi...

Purpose To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of cataract surgery using femtosecond laser–assisted lens fragmentation and anterior capsulotomy versus manual cataract surgery. Setting MaxiVision Eye Hospital, Begumpet, Hyderabad, India. Design Randomized controlled open-label multisurgeon prospective trial. Methods Patients (at least 18 years old) were randomized to femtosecond laser–assisted lens prefragmentation and capsulotomy or manual capsulorhexis and standard phacoemulsification. Measur...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the performance of two intraocular lenses (IOLs). The new monofocal IOL using a higher-order aspheric optic (Tecnis Eyhance ICB00) was compared to a standard monofocal IOL (Tecnis monofocal ZCB00) of the identical platform and material. METHODS: The medical records of the patients who had undergone cataract surgery with implantation of either the ZCB00 or the ICB00 in the dominant eye from March 2020 to August 2020 and with available data from the 3-month visit were reviewed...

PURPOSE To study practice patterns in European cataract surgery over a 10-year period. SETTING European clinics affiliated to the European Registry of Quality Outcomes for Cataract and Refractive Surgery (EUREQUO). DESIGN Registry cohort study. METHODS The EUREQUO contains preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative parameters reported by surgeons in many European clinics. All data reported to the registry are anonymized. Preoperative parameters included age, sex, visual acuity, target refra...

PURPOSE This study was conducted to investigate factors related to postoperative good near and distance visual outcomes in the Lentis Mplus LS-313 MF20 (Oculentis Gmbh, Berlin, Germany) intraocular lens (IOL)-implanted eye. METHODS A retrospective cross-sectional study analyzed a total of 198 eyes of 198 patients. Patients with 20/20-or-more uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA, 5 m) and J2-or-more uncorrected near visual acuity (UNVA, 40 cm) were distributed into the good visual outcome (GV...
