Trilogy: Treating dense cataracts – when routine becomes a challenge

Dr. Don Pek, Dr. Ruth Lapid-Gortzak, Dr. Nino Hirnschall, Dr. Sartaj Grewal & Dr. Franco Spedale
 
Removing hard cataracts can be difficult even for the most experienced cataract surgeons. Patients are typically older, with low visual acuity and coexisting ocular pathologies. Thus, it is essential to understand the patient's underlying conditions and to prepare for possible challenges during the surgical procedure.

On the one hand, pre-operative cataract evaluation is an occurring challenge since a dense cataract is, by its very nature, difficult to penetrate. On the other hand, lens fragmentation of a dense cataract requires a lot more phaco energy to emulsify the hard nucleus. More energy increases the risk of damage to corneal endothelial cells, which, in turn, can cause post-operative complications.
 
 
Dr. Don Pek will guide you through the trilogy on the topics of:
Webinar 1: Dense cataract – what is it about? with Dr. Ruth Lapid-Gortzak
Webinar 2: Be prepared for your dense cataract cases with Dr. Nino Hirnschall
Webinar 3: Bring it all together & split it with ease with Dr. Franco Spedale and Dr. Sartaj Grewal
 
Program:
 
  • How to be prepared for dense cataract cases
  • The possible challenges during the surgical procedure
  • Live Q&A and expert panel discussions

Patients with previous laser correction – are presbyopia-correcting IOLs a suitable option?

Dr. Amir Hamid & Dr. Ben LaHood
Dr. Amir Hamid & Dr. Ben LaHood
Cataract surgery has become more sophisticated thanks to an increasing variety of optical IOL designs and the advancement of IOL calculation formulas. These days even more patients can benefit from the new technologies available. With easy access to information, patient expectations regarding visual outcomes are increasing, including the desire for spectacle independency.
 
The increasing trend of laser vision correction has made IOL selection and calculation more complex. What is the ideal combination for a patient with previous myopic laser surgery treatment? Is there any difference in IOL selection for patients with pervious hyperopic laser correction?

Managing Post-Refractive Patients: A Clinical Case Discussion

Dr. Yeo Tun Kuan & Dr. Sheetal Brar
Dr. Yeo Tun Kuan & Dr. Sheetal Brar
More and more refractive patients, who underwent a laser vision correction several years ago, now turn into cataract patients. These patients are most likely very demanding as they are more sensitive to their post-operative outcome with a high wish for spectacle independence. In addition, these cases can be a challenge when it comes to IOL power calculation, as for example the shape of the cornea and/or spherical aberrations have changed.
 
Program:
  • Case presentation and discussion, including the pre-operative assessment
  • Proper IOL power calculation
  • Recommendations for IOL technology selection
  • Q&A
