Intraocular Foreign Body Related Endophthalmitis: The Second-look Vitrectomy

Intraocular Foreign Body Related Endophthalmitis: The Second-look Vitrectomy ABSTRACT The management of endophthalmitis associated with retained IOFB is always challenging. With the improvement in surgical techniques, even more eyes are being saved. Visual prognosis is affected by the complexity of confluent factors such as inflammation and features of the foreign body. Furthermore, it also depends on the surgery approach, often difficult...

The Claw – A Novel Intraocular Foreign Body Removal Forceps

The Claw – A Novel Intraocular Foreign Body Removal Forceps ABSTRACT Intraocular foreign bodies (IOFBs) have been reported in upto 40% cases of penetrating globe injuries. Removal of large irregular or spherical shaped & non-metallic or non-magnetic IOFBs is challenging in many cases. We introduce a forceps with retractable claw shaped prongs that can be used in such challenging case scenarios. The intrument consists of handle...

Severe Eye Injuries: The Trouble with Being Late

Severe Eye Injuries: The Trouble with Being Late ABSTRACT The “when” is just as an important question in the surgical intervention for eyes with posterior segment injury as is the “what”. Identifying the ideal timing (staging) of vitreoretinal surgery is thus crucial as the most optimal management strategy is selected. Delaying posterior segment surgery beyond two weeks, which is unfortunately too often seen in the...
