However, a 2007 study found that retinal vein occlusion and epiretinal membrane (ERM) significantly increased the patient’s risk of developing CME after uncomplicated cataract surgery.1, In that study, 2.4 percent of subjects developed postoperative CME, mostly within three months of the cataract surgery, the researchers found. 0000138221 00000 n 0000106976 00000 n 0000003676 00000 n 0000145575 00000 n 0000082181 00000 n Chemical injuries most commonly affect young men.

A number of retinal conditions—including diabetic retinopathy, retinitis pigmentosa, and vascular occlusion—are known to increase the risk of postoperative CME, even after uneventful cataract surgery.1 Moreover, complicated cataract surgery, especially with vitreous loss, increases the risk of postoperative CME, Dr. Oetting said. “I prefer to have the patient not get his or her cataract removed until we get to a point where I feel we have a good handle on the disease, and the patient is responding well,” she said. 0000143870 00000 n Because the risk of cystoid macular edema (CME) increases by a factor greater than 30 if there is a previous retinal vein occlusion (RVO), the experts recommend performing prophylaxis against CME. 2014;121(6):1229-1236.

You have to be very clear that they won’t get back their lost central vision.”. Hi all, wondering if anyone could tell me what it means to have a guarded prognosis? However, “If there is an ERM but the foveal contour isn’t particularly distorted, then my thoughts are that most of the blurry vision is not retinal in origin, and the membrane peeling can be done later,” she said. 0000015902 00000 n The term is most commonly used in information given to the news media, and is rarely used as a clinical description by physicians..

Surgeons should be particularly careful with hydrodissection and should treat these cases much like a posterior polar cataract, he said. Visual prognosis is often guarded in patients with PDR undergoing PPV with higher grades of vitreoretinal (VR) adhesion because of the high rate of both intra-operative and postoperative complications. 0000087465 00000 n 0000140631 00000 n 0000002796 00000 n “I have seen many patients with pretty severe loss of central vision who really appreciate the brightness of their peripheral vision after cataract surgery.”, Even so, these patients should be cautioned that their visual prognosis remains guarded, Dr. Scott said.
