Purpose : Currently, there are no UK optometric standards on patients undergoing cataract surgery's pre- and postoperative refractive care. Methods Eighteen's recommendations outlined areas of question/variability in an earlier focus group review of refractive management of patients who had undergone cataract surgery. The responses were analyzed by the research team and then revised and/or deleted before a second Delphi round of responses to a new series of recommendations in a second Delphi round. By 20 clinicians, 17 updated recommendations were scored and commented on by 20 clinicians in a second round of the Delphi method. Recommendations were drawn between highly experienced optometrists and ophthalmologists using a 2-round Delphi system, with strong recommendations to guide the pre and postoperative refractive management of patients undergoing cataract surgery. Patients will profit from regular target refraction discussions, postoperative refractive control, and driving guidance, and recommendations that were particularly helpful to less experienced optometrists.

The aim of this research was to examine the changes in refraction in patients who had undergone cataract surgery using the phacoemulsification technique, as well as the stability of refraction. Bausch and Rayner were two different types of intraocular lenses used: Bausch and Rayner.

Purpose: Objective: To explore the perspectives of practicing refractive surgeons regarding the implementation of Immediate Sequential Bilateral Cataract Surgery in the United States and to compare their experiences with those of European colleagues. Methods An electronic survey was sent to all surgeons of the Refractive Surgery Alliance in the United States by an electronic mail. Twenty-three of the respondents said that ISCBCS should be promoted as a standard of care for routine cataract surgery. Conclusions: Although U. S. refractive surgeons routinely perform bilateral corneal procedures, several major obstacles remain in the widespread adoption of ISBCs. The majority of the respondents' poll results show that ISBCS should not be the same of care in routine situations, with the most common reason being questions over decreased physician supply and potential medicolegal issues rather than safety.

Myotonic dystrophy in adults is the most common inherited muscular dystrophy in adults, and it comes in two forms, type 1, and type 2. Some patients with this disease may require the testing of such cataract or corneal refractive procedures. This paper explores the most important information for clinicians to use when diagnosing and treating patients with myotonic dystrophy, as well as specific surgical conditions that should be considered prior to any surgical intervention. With careful monitoring of capsular phimosis and posterior capsular opacities, hydrophobic intraocular lenses are still recommended in these patients.
