Purpose: I have developed a laser etched contact lens to use as a guide for manual capsulorrhexis and IOL centration and toric alignment. Prototypes have been trialled.
Setting/Venue: Private surgeons have trialled the device in accredited surgery centres.
Methods: We have compared the use of the guide to video based surgical guidance systems and found good concordance with capsulorrhexis size and centration.
Results: Ease of use was good, and the device gives good assistance for capsulorrhexis, and IOL centration and toric alignment. Annoyance factor is minimal for the surgeon.
Conclusions: PrecisionIOLguide, a contact lens based device, may be useful for surgeons who do not use a video based surgical guidance system or femtosecond laser.
GLISTENINGS IN INTRAOCULAR LENSES IN AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND- A COLLABORATIVE SURGICAL QUALITY AUDIT OVER THE 24 MONTH PERIOD UP TO FEBRUARY 2017. FINDINGS OF THIS AUDIT OF LENSES IMPLANTED BETWEEN 1995 AND 2016, HIGHLIGHT THE ONGOING PRESENCE AND SEVERITY OF VACUOLES EVEN IN THE MOST RECENTLY IMPLANTED LENSES.
