  1. Mr Imran RahmanConsultant OphthalmologistSpecial interests: Cataract, Corneal Transplantation and Glaucoma Cataracts Truth and Myths

  2. What is a cataract? • Latin word for waterfall

  3. What is a cataract?

  4. What is a cataract?

  5. The History of Cataract Surgery • Reports of cataract surgery date back 300BC • ConstantinusAfricanus (AD 1018) • Cataract • Couching 600BC in India: • Aphakic correction • Remained popular until 19th century

  6. Scale of the problem • 18 million people blind with cataracts • 2 million procedures in the US • Over 300000 in the UK last year • Over last 20 years, number of procedures quadrupled

  7. Age and risk factors • 42% between 52-64, • 60% between 65-74 • 91% between 75-85 • UV exposure: 3 xs more prevalent in pilots • Diabetes • Trauma • Genetics • Medicines

  8. Prevention • UV glasses more delay onset • Vitamin A,C and E • N-acetylcarnosine can treat cataracts?? • Realistically no true prevention

  9. Symptoms of cataract • Individual • Second sight • Blurring • Loss of sight • Glare • Daily tasks difficult • Falls and secondary injuries

  10. Glare and clarity

  11. What we do about cataracts? • Remove only when vision affected or retinal problems • Removal and replacement of cataract lens has been mastered • Results exceptional • But expectations increased

  12. Cataracts • Removal and replacement of vision has been mastered • Results exceptional • But expectations increased

  13. Intracapsular and extracapsular surgery • Intracapsular surgery with Cryoprobe • Aphakic • AC lens • Extracapsular surgery started 1753 • Jacques Daviel long corneal incision • Von Graefe 1865 small scleral incision • Intracaps favoured

  14. Phacoemulsification • Charles Kelman 1967 • 4 hours and 41 minutes of ultrasound • Endophthalmitis • Phacoemulsification took off some 20 years later • Average time for surgery is 15 mins • Incision size decreased from 12mm to 3mm and now possible through 1.8mm

  15. Introduction of the IOL • Operating microscope 1948 • Intraocular lens 1948 • Harold Ridley 1906-2001 • Perspex • Opposition • ECCE became favoured procedure

  16. Current IOL outcomes • 80% within +/- 1 D of desired outcome • Monofocals • Why?

  17. Limitations of current IOL measurements • No matter how good the system, people will still make mistakes. Some reasons include: • people in a hurry • lack of training or accessible guidelines • reliance on others • technical failure (rarely) • human error (often). • Some common mistakes (collected from the UK and overseas departments): • wrong A-constant selected • wrong formula used • wrong K-readings entered by hand (90 degrees out) • biometry print-out stuck in wrong patient’s notes • incorrectly labelled IOL • wrong patient in theatre • reversed IOL optic • wrong IOL implanted (25.5 D implanted instead of 22.5 D or +30 D instead of +3.0 D). • Some errors of omission include: • no biometry at all • no spectacle prescription or focimetry available • no IOL available on the day • not taking account of the other eye • not discussing the intended outcome with the patient. • Another factor to consider is the postoperative position of the IOL. Inadvertent placement in the sulcus will cause a 0.75 D myopic shift. If an anterior chamber IOL has to be used, the A-constant will be different. If all else fails, blame the machine! Different biometry machines may give different results, which can be confusing (e.g. A-scan biometry and IOL Master). • In some high-volume clinics, the time required for biometry exceeds the time taken for surgery. However, if you are going to do biometry, you have to do it properly and thoroughly. It is better to have a few well-trained and experienced members of staff who can get consistent results, than to have many people with limited training and experience. • Departments should aim for consistency in their biometry and audit their results. Mistakes are easy to make, but difficult (and sometimes expensive) to rectify. The following list sums up some lessons that can be learnt from others’ mistakes: • slow down • train and certify your biometry staff • follow guidelines • don’t rely on others • watch out for the unexpected • learn from mistakes, particularly any eyes with error greater than 2 dioptre • audit your outcomes. • If you are using biometry, 80 per cent of eyes should be within 1 dioptre of their intended refraction. Try to identify any issues that are leading to consistent errors

  18. Complications • Unusual • Infection • Bleeding • Irritation • Retinal detachment • Sight loss

  19. Presbyopia • Holy Grail • An unwelcome reminder of advancing age • Mechanism unknown

  20. Signs of Presbyopia • Loss of ability to read up close • Difficulty reading in bright light • Difficulty viewing a computer screen • Need reading glasses or bifocals • Holding objects further away to read

  21. Prelex and Premium lenses • The hope of premium lenses • Choosing the right lens for the right patient • Hypermetropes are desperate to revert to spectacle independence

  22. Prelex and Premium lenses • The hope of premium lenses • Choosing the right lens for the right patient • Hypermetropes are desperate to revert to spectacle independence

  23. Acri:Lisa • Acrilisa stated as 90% spectacle Independence • Only 1 year old • Yet to be proven

  24. Crystalens AO

  25. Restor and Tecnis • 80% of patients no longer needed glasses or contact lenses to see clearly at all distances

  26. Limitations • Studies look at spectacle independence • Image quality limited • Sharpness reduced • Haloes and glare • Decrease vision in dim light

  27. Light Adjustable Lens • Only lens adjustable after implantation • Perfect ‘guaranteed’ vision can be achieved • Stable • Corrects presbyopia and cataract • This is the next big innovation in Lens surgery • The Future of Intraocular lenses

  28. Customisation
