Focal Points 2020 Module: Management of Cataract Surgery and Uveitis

Focal Points 2020 Module: Management of Cataract Surgery and Uveitis
A common complication of uveitis is cataract. Cataract can occur in up to 64% of patients with uveitis and accounts for 40% of vision loss. Cataract surgery in uveitis patients can be challenging, but recent studies confirm that better visual outcomes will result from optimal pre-and postoperative management.

This Focal Points module highlights pre-and postoperative inflammation control, with a focus on the structural sequelae of macular edema, and on techniques and devices that aid in cataract extraction for eyes with small pupils.

By completing this module, you will:

  • Understand the challenges associated with surgery for uveitic cataracts.
  • Discuss the key elements of pre-and postoperative management of cataract and uveitis and highlight control of uveitic macular edema.
  • Discuss special surgical considerations in pediatric cataract and uveitis.
  • Delineate current techniques available to optimize cataract surgery complicated by small pupils.
  • Discuss some of the pros and cons of femtosecond laser–assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) versus phacoemulsification cataract surgery (PCS) for uveitic cataracts.
