Common findings included corneal fibrosis, cataracts, and asteroid hyalosis
Silicone IOLs also exhibit a rare association with calcification of the optic and are thus contraindicated in patients with asteroid hyalosis
Whether or not to replace a removed lens and the anatomic location of the new lens are decided based on surgeon experience, patient age, the condition of the posterior capsule, and the patient's other ocular pathologies (glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, asteroid hyalosis
, low endothelial cell count, increased corneal thickness).
Light rays from OCT can reasonably penetrate mild ocular media opacities like cataract, posterior capsular opacification, vitreous hemorrhage, asteroid hyalosis
One eye had asteroid hyalosis
noted before injection at the time of initial examination.
26%) were retinal detachment with vitreous haemorrhage (Fig 4) while asteroid hyalosis
Severe asteroid hyalosis
obscured the fundus OD in 1 eagle (Fig 5).
By far the most common cause of crystalline deposits in the vitreous gel is asteroid hyalosis
They found that out of 73 scans performed, 48 eyes had vitreous haemorrhage 22 eyes showed inflame action in the vitreous and 3 eyes had asteroid hyalosis
out of 48eyes with vitreous haemorrhage, 34% had posterior segment pathology.
Another less common ageing change in the vitreous gel is asteroid hyalosis
, in which calcium salts are found in (usually) one eye.
vitreous hemorrhage, asteroid hyalosis
, silicon oil were detected in 1 eye (1%) respectively.
In addition, asteroid hyalosis
is also more common in this group (Figure 1).
