Ironically, after LASIK the altered corneal surface causes inaccurate measurement of the intraocular lens power for cataract surgery.This means that patients who have LASIK surgery and later develop cataracts may be right back in glasses after cataract surgery -- or worse, subjected to the inherent risks of multiple surgeries. Print this form (K-card) and have it completed by your LASIK surgeon, and then place it with your important records for safekeeping.Presbyopia is the physiological degradation of accommodation and still remains as the last frontier of refractive surgery as its surgical management is perhaps the most innovative and challenging and is under constant renewal.The multifactorial basis for the development of presbyopia makes it difficult to be managed adequately.
Overall, the reported results with these lenses by independent authors have been modest in relation with the restoration of the accommodative power of the eye and these modest benefits are usually lost with time due to the long term changes in the capsular bag.
Spontaneous mutation in the gene for Fuchs’ dystrophy also can cause new Fuchs’ dystrophy in a person with no family history.
Currently there are studies underway to try and determine exactly which gene is responsible for the dystrophy, but as of yet we still do not know the exact gene.
It results from an inherited, imperfect optical shape of the cornea, the clear front window of the eye.
The shape of your cornea should be perfectly round, but if is more oblong (like the back of a spoon) instead of spherical, then it will mis-focus details causing your natural vision to be blurrier compared to patients without astigmatism.During cataract surgery, your physician will replace your natural lens with an IOL.
