    2. Microscope-Integrated Optical coherence Tomography Assisted Pre-Descemetic Endothelial Keratoplasty

      Microscope-Integrated Optical coherence Tomography Assisted Pre-Descemetic Endothelial Keratoplasty
      Four patients of pseudophakic corneal edema were subjected to pre-Descemetic endothelial keratoplasty (PDEK) under the direct guidance of microscope-integrated optical coherence tomography (i-OCT). i-OCT facilitated successful type 1 big-bubble formation during donor preparation, debridement of hypertrophic epithelium, planning and placement of surgical wounds, descemetorrhexis with removal of remnant Descemet membrane tags, and identification of correct donor orientation and interface details. It was also possible to discern the stability of intraocular ...

    3. Epiretinal membrane profile on spectral domain optical coherence tomography in patients with uveitis

      Epiretinal membrane profile on spectral domain optical coherence tomography in patients with uveitis
      Purpose: To study the epiretinal membrane (ERM) profile on the spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) in eyes with uveitis. Methods: In this prospective observational study, macula of uveitic eyes were evaluated by SDOCT (Cirrus, model 5000) for ERM. ERM was quantified (in microns) and were followed up along with the best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and treatment profile for 1 year. ERM morphology (focal, global, or mixed) and characteristics (thickness at ...

    5. Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography for Imaging the Sub-Tenon Space

      Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography for Imaging the Sub-Tenon Space
      In this study, we report the ability of anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS OCT) in imaging the sub-Tenon space and its clinical application. High-speed AS OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, Calif., USA) was used to visualize the sub-Tenon space during sub-Tenon injection. The sub-Tenon spaces, Tenon thickness, conjunctiva-Tenon thickness, injecting cannula position in relation to the sub-Tenon space and drug localization/distribution in the sub-Tenon space were analyzed. The ...

    6. Reliability and reproducibility of assessment of corneal epithelial thickness by Fourier domain optical coherence tomography

      Reliability and reproducibility of assessment of corneal epithelial thickness by Fourier domain optical coherence tomography
      Purpose: To analyze the intra-user reliability and inter-user reproducibility of assessment of corneal epithelial thickness by Fourier domain optical coherence tomography. Method: In this consecutive cross sectional case series performed at a tertiary ocular care institution 210 eyes of 210 subjects underwent anterior segment Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (FDOCT) with Cirrus HD-OCT. 'Caliper tool' was used to measure the corneal thickness. For reproducibility measures, the examination was done by ...

    7. Comparison of Fourier-Domain and Time-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography for Assessment of Corneal Thickness and Intersession Repeatability

      Purpose To compare Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) with time-domain OCT (TD-OCT) for agreement in corneal pachymetry in the central (2-mm) zone and paracentral (2- to 5-mm) zone, minimum corneal thickness, and instrument intersession reliability in candidates with normal cornea. Design Prospective comparative trial. Methods The study was performed at a tertiary care ophthalmic hospital. One hundred normal candidates with no ocular pathology except mild refractive error were included. FD-OCT ...

    8. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography–aided diagnosis and primary posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation with fibrin glue in traumatic phacocele with scleral perforation

      We describe the case of a middle-aged woman who presented to us after injury from a clenched fist 3 days previously. The diagnosis was occult scleral perforation, severe conjunctival chemosis, and traumatic aphakia. However, the lens could not be localized during posterior segment examination. An anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) examination showed scleral discontinuity and a heterogeneous reflection in the subconjunctival area, suggesting a possible phacocele. Surgical exploration confirmed ...

  2. About Amar Agarwal

    Amar Agarwal

    Amar Agarwal is the pioneer of Phakonit which is Phako with a Needle Incision Technology. This technique became popularized as Bimanual phaco, Microincision cataract surgery (MICS) or Microphaco. He is the first to remove cataracts through a 0.7 mm tip with the technique called Microphakonit. He has also discovered No anesthesia cataract surgery and FAVIT a new technique to remove dropped nuclei. The air pump which was a simple idea of using an aquarium fish pump to increase the fluid into the eye in bimanual phaco and co-axial phaco has helped prevent surge. This built the basis of various techniques of forced infusion for small incision cataract surgery.

    He was also the first to use trypan blue for staining epiretinal membranes and publishing the details in his 4 volume textbook of ophthalmology. He has also discovered a new refractive error called Aberropia. He has also been the first to do a combined surgery of microphakonit (700 micron cataract surgery) with a 25 gauge vitrectomy in the same patient thus having the smallest incisions possible for cataract and vitrectomy. He is also the first surgeon to implant a new mirror telescopic IOL (LMI) for patients suffering from age related macular degeneration. The Malyugin ring for small pupil cataract surgery was also modified by him as the Agarwal modification of the Malyugin ring for miotic pupil cataract surgeries with posterior capsular defects. He has also been the first in the world to implant a Glued IOL. In this a PC IOL is fixed in an eye without any capsules using fibrin glue. Anterior segment Optical coherence tomography was used for the first time in Dr.Agarwal’s eye hospital to quantify changes in anterior chamber morphology in inflammation assessing all the parameters. The Hyper reflective spots detected in the anterior chamber were counted manually and with automated computer algorithm. Also for the first time management of pseudophakic bullous keratopathy was done by a combination of intralase keratoplasty, explantation of the AC IOL, vitrectomy and implantation of a glued PC IOL. A new surgical technique Jacob-Agarwal sling surgery was devised for acquired and congenital ptosis with poor levator function in which the Seiff silicone suspension set is used in a frontalis sling procedure. The entire length of the silicone set is guided in the muscle plane through a single stab incision. Professor Agarwal has received many awards for his work done in ophthalmology most significant being the BARRAQUER AWARD and the KELMAN AWARD. His videos have won many awards at the film festivals of ASCRS, AAO and ESCRS. He has also written more than 40 books which have been published in various languages- English, Spanish and Polish. He also trains doctors from all over the world in his center on phaco, bimanual phaco, lasik and retina. He is also Professor of Ophthalmology at Ramachandra Medical College in Chennai, India.
