PROLAPSE OF THE IRIS AT CATARACT OPERATION

PROLAPSE OF THE IRIS AT CATARACT OPERATION This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract To the Editor: —I have read Dr. Frank C. Parker's paper on a cataract operation to reduce the incidence of prolapse of the iris and his instruction on the movements of the iris during the incision with great interest (Arch. Ophth. 20: 597 [Oct.] 1938). Like him, I have had an occasional prolapse after simple extraction of a cataract, but I adopted the small peripheral iridectomy to allow the fluid behind the iris to escape through the wound without prolapse of the iris. Since adopting this simple procedure many years ago, I have scarcely ever had a prolapse.The only difficulty was that when iridectomy was done first the lens attempted to come through the coloboma instead of through the pupil. For some time I have done the peripheral iridectomy after the extraction, and this has been entirely satisfactory.One drop of physostigmine salicylate after the operation insures firm contraction http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Ophthalmology American Medical Association
