Intravitreal Chopping of Dropped Nucleus with 23g “Acar Forceps”

EDITED FILM ABSTRACT The management of nucleus drop is with vitrectomy. Inflammation is generally increased in these eyes after complicated cataract surgery, and posterior hyaloid is often attached. Vitrectomy probes are usually not efficient to remove these hard materials, and endophacofragmentation is often necessary. Endophacofragmentation probes are usually not available in 23g, and routine phaco probe without a sleeve can be used...

Lecture “Review of OCT Angiogram” given by Dr. Richard Spaide, USA

Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was one of the biggest advances in ophthalmic imaging. Building on that platform, OCT angiography (OCTA) provides depth resolved images of blood flow in the retina and choroid with levels of detailed far exceeding that obtained with older forms of imaging. This new modality is challenging because of the need for new equipment and processing techniques, current...

EVRS Award Lecture given by Dr. Richard Spaide, USA

Improving the Age-Related Macular Degeneration Construct: A New Classification System Previous models of disease in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) were incomplete in that they did not encompass subretinal drusenoid deposits (pseudodrusen), subtypes of neovascularization, and polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy. In addition, Type 3 neovascularization starts in the retina and may not necessarily involve the choroid. As such the term...
