Transcript of "Premier IOL choices Technique & Decision Making do we really need femtosecond laser cataract surgery"

  1. 1. Premier IOL choices Technique & Decision Making or earlier cataract surgery or do we really need femtosec laser cataract surgery Dr. Inderjit Singh FRCS(E)., FRCOphth., FRANZCO Chatswood , Sydney
  2. 2. Aim of modern cataract Surgery Royal College of Ophthalmologists  Restoration of vision  Achievement of desired refractive outcome  Improvement QOL  Ensuring safety and satisfaction  A VA is not mentioned  Meticulous pre-op;intra-op;post op mng
  3. 3. Earlier Cataract Operations (1)      Outcomes in small incision is more predictable Glasses free vision-Toric and Multifocal IOLs Safer operation because of smaller incisions Meet the visual demands that patient expects Short recovery period
  4. 4. Earlier Cataract Operations (2)  Surgery should be performed for symptoms rather than a number on a vision chart – Influenced by a variety of cataracts
  5. 5. Earlier Cataract Operations (3)  Allow patients to minimise glasses wear  Have the surgery at an age when you are still healthy and active  Improved vision, via cataract surgery, minimises falls.  Fractured hip aged 75, 40% survive one year.  Contralateral hip fracture, in such a patient
  6. 6. Earlier Cataract Operations (4)  Minimize future AAC glaucoma  Improves glare and night driving  Up to 97% of patients are achieving UDVA/CDVA of 6/4
  7. 7. Visual Function Test- VF7 Reading signs – traffic,street,store  Seeing steps,stairs,or curbs  Watching TV  Night driving  Reading small print  Doing fine handiwork  Cooking 
  8. 8. The Unhappy Patient  Ocular Co-morbidities  Refractive surprises  Astigmatism  Amblyopia
  9. 9. FOCUS Autumn 2010 Pt. Expectations     The success of refractive cataract surgery depends on achieving a predictable refractive outcome for defocus (spherical equivalent) and astigmatism. Refractive surprises can seriously compromise patient satisfaction and also give rise to potential problems of anisometropia, dominance switch in which the dominant eye ends up with the weaker uncorrected vision and, above all, give rise a sense of failure in patients expecting good uncorrected visual acuity.
  10. 10. FOCUS – Autumn 2010 Ocular comorbidities  Small hyperopic eyes, large myopic eyes, eyes with very  steep or flat corneas, shallow anterior chamber depths,  history of refractive surgery, vitrectomy, corneal ectasia,  peripheral corneal melt syndromes and contact lens use  (when measured without an adequate contact lens holiday)  are at significant risk of refractive surprises. It is important  to warn these patients of the increased risk of refractive  surprise as part of the informed consent process and prepare  the patients for a second stage enhancement procedure
  11. 11. Refractive Surprise Refractive Cataract Surgery    Restore transparency of ocular media +correct any refractive aberrations of the eye (ametropia,astigmatism) Reduce spec dependence QOL and economic benefits Refractive Surprise  Anisometropia  Dominance switch  Sense of failure in pts expecting good uncorrected va
  12. 12. Refractive Surprise - Sources of Error Norrby,S. JCRS 34/3 March 2008         IOL power calculations- SRKT, HofferQ, Haigis,HolladayII, Post op Effective Lens position(36%) ( Optimising IOL constant most important factor,Anstodemon,JCRS Jan 2011) Error in post op refraction(27%) AXL Measurements(17%) Pupil Size(8%) – only if there is spherical aberration Keratometry(10%)- ant curvature with keratometer,topographers;post curvature IOL Power –very small variability,(desired outcome deviation =max 0.18D) Other Sources of error- corneal thickness,post surface asphericity,higher order,chromatic aberrations,change in corneal power (Norrby,S JCRS 34/3 March 2008)
  13. 13. What about Astigmatism Pre-existing corneal astig –TORIC IOL  Surgeon induced astig – astigmatic neutral incision.  Nailing +/- 0.50 D for both sphere and cylinder is important +1.00-2.00x90(SE=0) +0.25-0.50x90(SE=0) 
  14. 14. Ferrer-Blasco T,Montés-Micó R,Peixoto-de-Matos SC,GonzálezMéijome JM,Cerviño A.Prevalence of corneal astigmatism before cataract surgery.J Cataract Refract Surg.2009;35(1):70-75. N = 4540 eyes.  87% of cataract surgery patients have preoperative astigmatism  64% of patients fall within 0.50 to 1.25  36% of patients having greater than 1.26 D
  15. 15. ASTIGMATISM (contd)  16% of all eyes had astig of 1.5D or more  46.8% WTR(minus cyl @180) , 34.3% ATR  Temp clear corneal incision will reduce astig in 34% of pts but worsen for 47%  Corneal astig did not increase with age  Correlations -AXL,Ks,ACD,WTW-normal and abnormal eyes – effect on effective IOL position
  16. 16. TORIC IOLs- New Standard of care Wolffsohn,JCRS,Effect of uncorrected astigmatism on vision March 2011  Modest amounts of astigmatism can have major effect on vision  Effect independence – night,rain driving  Quality of life, well being – reading speed  Higher risks of falls  Worse with WTR
  17. 17. 1.Eliminate Surgeon Induced Astigmatism - Results of Astigmatism Studies Masket, MD
  18. 18. Surgeon Factor  The surgically induced astigmatic factor is usually in the range between 0.25 and 0.50 D when a 2.2- to 2.4-mm incision is used. Ideally, a surgeon should review the outcomes of one’s previous 20 or more cases, comparing preoperative keratometric measurements with postoperative readings. Routinely reexamining one’s surgically induced astigmatic factor to monitor for any changes can also be beneficial.
  19. 19. Astigmatism  aim for both spherical and astigmatic outcomes of 0.5 D to avoid symptoms of ghosting and shadows.  A patient with >=0.75 D of regular corneal astigmatism and who desires spectacle independence for distance vision may be considered for a toric IOL. Evidence supports the use of toric IOLs even in patients with low levels of astigmatism  Statham M, Apel A, Stephensen D. Comparison of the AcrySof SA60 spherical intraocular lens and the AcrySof Toric SN60T3 intraocular lens outcomes in patients with low amounts of corneal astigmatism.
