Phacoemulsification, the gold standard for cataract extraction, is highly successful. However, the procedure is not without risks and complications. Poor visual outcome, retinal detachment, infection, diplopia, and cornea and iris problems may pose considerable challenges. Additional potential problems arise from implanting the intraocular lens (IOL). Edited by a renowned master surgeon and educator in the field, and authored by a remarkable cast of cataract experts, this is the definitive text on managing cataract surgery, with practical guidance on recognizing and managing complications, should they arise. Experts demonstrate the right way to perform phacoemulsification and diverse surgical and intraocular lens implantation procedures in order to reduce risk and improve patient outcome. This second edition is greatly expanded in size and scope to accomodate the latest state-of-the-art methodologies and refinements in surgical strategies. Since the first edition was published, new techniques for refractive cataract surgery, vitrectomy, IOL exchange, and management of IOL implantation without capsular bag support have been improved. Additionally, new technologies have been introduced such as optical coherence tomography, FLACS (femtosecond laser surgery), and implantation of toric and multifocal refractive IOLs, as well as methods to improve IOL power calculation and decision making. Highlights A stellar group of national and internationally renowned eye surgeons provide invaluable clinical pearls gleaned from years of refining procedures Surgical videos further elucidate the most optimal surgical strategies More than 600 superb illustrations Management of challenges including small pupils, IFIS, zonular weakness, inadequate capsular support, vitrectomy, corneal burns, high astigmatism, dysphotopsias, and endophthalmitis This invaluable reference will help opthalmologists refine their expertise, resulting in fewer risks and more efficacious outcomes. It is a must-have resource for opthalmology residents and proficient surgeons alike.

Cataract is an extremely prevalent condition of the crystalline lens that leads to progressively poor vision. It creates a huge burden for the current health service in New Zealand that is faced with increasing demands for high-quality vision. Fortunately, it is readily treatable with phacoemulsification cataract surgery, which is the preferred and most common technique of treatment in New Zealand. This procedure is highly successful but there are occasional complications that may lead to poorer visual outcomes and longer recovery. This thesis sets out to assess the success and complications of contemporary phacoemulsification cataract surgery in New Zealand. The primary hypothesis is that the introduction of a preoperative risk stratification system can reduce intraoperative complications and improve surgical outcomes in a public teaching hospital setting. A simple standardized preoperative risk stratification system, based on patient and ocular risk factors associated with intraoperative complications in phacoemulsification cataract surgery, was implemented into routine clinical practice to calculate a risk score for each case. The scores were indicative of the risk of an intraoperative complication and were used to help allocate higher risk cases to senior surgeons with appropriate experience and skill. Following risk stratification, the intraoperative complication rates reduced considerably. However, the effect on postoperative complication rates and visual outcomes were not statistically, although potentially clinically, significant. Visual improvements following phacoemulsification surgery are not only affected by complications but may be significantly limited by residual astigmatism. A sub-group analysis of cases that received a toric intraocular lens to concurrently manage astigmatism at time of cataract surgery revealed underutilisation of this technique in the New Zealand public teaching hospital setting. Variation in measurements and lens calculations resulted in a slight over-correction of astigmatism on average but patients achieved similar visual outcomes to cases that had less astigmatism and received a spherical intraocular lens. A study of the longitudinal trends of corneal transplantation performed over the last 25 years to treat pseudophakic bullous keratopathy revealed a reduction in this longer-term complication of cataract surgery in New Zealand. The trend followed numerous modifications to phacoemulsification cataract surgery since its introduction to New Zealand in the late 1980s. In conclusion, there was a decreasing rate of adverse outcomes following phacoemulsification cataract surgery and changing trends in their treatment in New Zealand. Preoperative risk assessment and stratification, coupled with appropriate case allocation, provided further reduction in intraoperative adverse outcomes in a public teaching hospital setting. Thus, it is anticipated that the preoperative risk stratification system will become a part of the standard of care across New Zealand to provide safer surgery to more patients.

Surely the threat of blindness from whatever cause, is an event faced by an ever-growing segment of our aging population. However, when the cause was cataract formation, over the centuries a definite treatment evolved and became available to help those afflicted with this problem, from couching, through crude extra-capsular Graeffe knife extraction, intra-capsular cataract surgery, and planned extra-capsular surgery, to phacoemulsification (ultrasound or laser). Doctors, therefore, recognized very early that there was one blinding condition which could be treated and in which vision could be i.

Cataract ranks high among the diseases that cause visual disability and blindness in the world. Cataract surgery is the most common surgery performed by an Ophthalmologist. Phacoemulsification is the state of the art in cataract surgery. Learning the technique of phacoemulsification is a major challenge for the trainee and new ophthalmic surgeons. Mastering the technique requires extensive training and a steep learning curve. The authors have discussed the various steps of phacoemulsification and other techniques of cataract surgery like SICS including the difficulties and complications encountered and how to avoid them. A separate chapter deals with the techniques required to get used to an Operating Microscope and the basic principles of the equipments used. Phacoemulsification for the beginning surgeons is to guide the trainee and new surgeons to learn the surgery in the shortest possible time in order to gain the necessary expertise to perform the surgery with confidence. Both Dr. Munirul Huq and Dr. Mehdi (Matti) Vazeen have extensive experience in cataract surgery and they believe that, the text will help the new surgeon to go through the learning curve and gain proficiency and this will also serve as a reference guide at the time of difficulty and complications. The aim is not to replace other textbooks on the topic but to share the experience of the authors for the benefit of the new upcoming cataract surgeons.
