Patients having diabetes mellitus, hypertension, history of previous intraocular surgery or ocular trauma, corneal or conjunctival irritation, h/o chemical trauma, uveitis, known corneal degeneration, dystrophies, opacity, high myopia > 5 D pregnant or lactating women, contact lens wearer, dry eye, and family h/o corneal decompensation
Removal of silicon oil (ROSO) is a procedure that carries a definite risk of re detachment, cataract, glaucoma, vitreous haemorrhage, hypotony, corneal decompensation
, phthisis bulbi, decrease in endothelial cell density and macular changes5,6.
4) CCT with > 640 microns in patients with endothelial dysfunction is associated with greater risk of postoperative corneal decompensation
This could be the reason for postoperative keratopathy with subsequent early and rapid corneal decompensation
Surgical indications were dislocated IOL in 58% (n=28), corneal decompensation
When assessing a cataract patient, either in general optometric practice or in a hospital cataract clinic, it is important to diagnose FED early to help in surgical planning and providing perioperative counselling to the patient regarding the risk of corneal oedema and possible corneal transplant soon after cataract surgery if corneal decompensation
We present the case of a patient with a bee sting in cornea without retention of the stinger, who developed corneal decompensation
and opacification of the lens as a side effect of the poison.
Patients with DM, hypertension, history of previous intraocular surgery or ocular trauma, corneal or conjunctival irritation, history of chemical trauma, uveitis, known corneal degeneration, dystrophies, opacity, high myopia, pregnant or lactating women, contact lens wearer, dry eye, and family history of corneal decompensation
Except one patient who had Corneal decompensation
, all others had a better quality of Vision after Scleral Fixated IOL.
When PEX was present, the calculated odds ratio for corneal decompensation
following surgery was 1.
can also occur after RLE surgery, particularly if the patient has a pre-existing endothelial dystrophy with a large number of guttatae.
8) It is impossible to quantify the risk of corneal decompensation
in these cases due to multiple variables such as endothelial cell health, density and nature of the cataract, surgeon skill, patient expectations and so on.
