FP1012 : To Compare the Prevalence of Primary Angle Closure Disease with Vanherick, Gonioscopy & Asoct in OPD

Dr.Rajat Kapoor, K16899, Dr. Bhavatharini M, Dr.Amjad Salman, Dr. Sathyan Parthasarathy

The word glaucoma came from the Greek word ‘glaukos’ which meant ‘clouded with a blue-green hue’. In the Hippocratic Aphorisms the term glaucoma was used to describe blindness coming on in advancing years associated with a glazed appearance of the pupil. The Hippocratic writings make no clear distinction between cataract and glaucoma.

FP1039 : Outcomes of Coaxial Microincision Cataract Surgery Versus Conventional Phacoemulsification Surgery

Dr.Anu Malik, M12959, Dr. Yogesh Kumar,Dr. Alka Gupta

Cataract is the main cause of curable blindness worldwide, with developing world accounting for approximately three fourth of this blindness.1,2  Cataract has been  reported  to be responsible for 50-80% of  bilaterally  blind in India. There are 100 million eyes with cataract causing vision of <6/60 and number is increasing because of population growth and increasing life expectancy.3

FP1091: Long-Term Comparison of Pco: Hydrophobic Acrylic Versus Hydrophilic Acrylic IOLS

Dr. Samaresh (S13187), Dr. Vaishali Abhaykumar Vasavada, Dr. Viraj Abhayakuma Vasavada, Dr. Shail

Posterior capsule opacification (PCO) is the most common complication followingcataract surgery and  is generally treated with Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy. Several factors play a role in the formation of posterior capsule opacification (PCO) such as variations in surgical technique, patient characteristics, lens design, design of the edge of the lens and lens material used.8-10A complete 360-degree cover of the anterior capsulorhexis over the intraocular lens (IOL) optic also influences PCO development.11-14

FP11 : Nd : Yag Laser for Management of Fluid Filled Descemet Membrane Detachment Following Cataract Surgery

Dr. Harshal Rathi, R15159

Descemet membrane detachment (DMD) is a known complication after cataract surgery. However it is usually noticed intra-operatively or in the early post-operative period. Late onset DMD after cataract surgery is seldom reported.1-3 Here we report a rare case of late onset spontaneous DMD with fluid filled in the space created by the separation, along with its anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) documentation and treatment.

FP1115 : Topo-Guided Cross-Linking: Outcome Study and It Relationship To Cellular Biomarkers

Dr. Shruti Kochar, K17834, Dr.Natasha Pahuja, Dr. Rohit Shetty, Dr. Abhijit Sinha Roy

Keratoconus is a corneal disease characterized by progressive thinning and protrusion of cornea.1In patients with progressive keratoconus with a clear central cornea and thinnest corneal thickness >400 microns, corneal cross-linking (KXL) can reduce the risk of progression.2 Keratoconus is a localized disease hence the treatment should be localized and not uniform.3 However, the mechanisms underlying the focal disease and the effect of the molecular factors on treatment outcomes remain unknown.

FP1119 : The Pretentious Uveitis: Masquarade Syndromes

Dr. Akanksha, Dr.Dipankar Das

Masquerade syndromes are disorders that can present with intraocular inflammation and are often misdiagnosed as a chronic idiopathic uveitis. The term “Masquerade Syndrome” was first used in 1967 to describe a case of conjunctival carcinoma that manifested as chronic conjunctivitis.

FP1126 : Dislocated IOLs : Etiology, Risk Factors, Visual Outcomes, and Management Techniques

Dr. Sonal Dua Juneja,
D16060, Dr. Deepak Bhojwani, Dr. Viraj
Abhayakumar Vasavada, Dr. Shail

Posterior Chamber IOL subluxation or dislocation as a late complication of cataract surgery is uncommon but represents one of the most serious complications & has been reported with increasing frequency in recent years.1-4 The incidence of surgery specifically due to late dislocated IOL is 0.032–0.28%.5-6

FP1136 : Outcome of Various Hydrophobic Acrylic Intraocular Lens Implantations in Children with Congenital Cataract

Dr. Jaspreet Sukhija, J09047, Dr. Savleen, Dr. Jagat Ram, Dr.Jitender Jinagal

Posterior capsule opacification (PCO) is the most common and amblyogenic complication after pediatric cataract surgery. Amongst the several foldable IOLs, hydrophobic acrylic material is proven to be the most biocompatible in children as well as adults. With a vast array of foldable hydrophobic acrylic IOLs of different manufacturers now available, we decided to compare some of them on their effect on the visual axis opacification (VAO) and compatibility after pediatric cataract surgery.
