Improving Anterior Chamber Stability

  Channels: Cataract Surgery | Posted 2/21/2011

"Given the high incidence of PVD 1 month after surgery, surgical trauma must be considered a risk factor for PVD. Anterior chamber collapse is a risk factor for destabilization of the vitreoretinal interface. Strategies to improve the stability of the anterior chamber and thus reduce forces on the posterior vitreous include use of newer phaco machines with less surge and better fluidics, microincision cataract surgery (MICS), and dispersive ophthalmic viscosurgical devices (OVDs)."
