608 Possible Causes for Cataract, Lens Dislocation

  • Marfan Syndrome

    Physical examination revealed a lens dislocation with strabismus, high palate, positive wrist and thumb signs, joint hypermobility, and pes planus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery is an effective approach for cataract surgery in patients with Marfan syndrome with mild, moderate, and even severe lens subluxation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When lens dislocation interferes with vision or causes glaucoma, surgery can be performed and an artificial lens implanted.[genome.gov]

  • Pseudoexfoliation Syndrome

    Spontaneous posterior capsule rupture is a very rare entity and its association with lens-nucleus dislocation even more.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] during, and even after, cataract surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (IOL) dislocation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lens Dislocation

    The dislocated lens was replaced with another posterior chamber intraocular lens sutured at the ciliary sulcus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A negative correlation was found between the patient age at cataract surgery and the time between cataract surgery and IOL dislocation (r -0.29; P 0.042).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a case of lens dislocation caused by simple vomiting. This case further implicated for the pathogenesis of lens dislocation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Ectopia lentis. Dislocated lens into the vitreous secondary to trauma.[emedicine.com] Dislocated traumatic lens (cataract). Ectopia lentis. Dislocated lens into the vitreous secondary to trauma.[emedicine.com]

  • Homocystinuria

    The patient had a past medical history significant for joint hypermobility, arthritis, bilateral cataracts, unilateral hearing loss, anemia, frequent urinary tract infections[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Eyes: dislocation of the lens usually downward and medially (ectopia lentis), myopia, glaucoma.[patient.info] […] retardation, thromboembolic events, downward dislocation of the lens Treatment : High doses of vitamin B6 Complications : Thromboembolic events (strokes) at any age Osteoporosis Cataract[medlibes.com]

  • Traumatic Cataract

    Lens dislocation and subluxation are commonly found in conjunction with traumatic cataract.[eyeglobe-eyeglobe.blogspot.com] Traumatic cataracts can be unilateral or bilateral.[symptoma.com] Rupture of the zonules can cause traumatic lens dislocation and subluxation With penetrating eye injury, there will be direct damage to the lens capsule and the lens material[webeyeclinic.com]

  • Secondary Glaucoma

    AIM: To determine the prevalence and risk factors associated with secondary glaucoma postcongenital cataract surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present a 53-year-old man with a crystalline lens that spontaneously dislocated anteriorly with corneal touch and secondary glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract We describe recurrent bilateral homocystinuria-related lens dislocation into the anterior chamber in a patient who had postoperative anterior staphyloma and secondary[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Exfoliation Syndrome

    Moreover, exfoliation syndrome may cause cataract or lens dislocation.[symptoma.com] RESULTS: The percentage of XFS among patients scheduled for cataract surgery was 16.4, with no gender difference (p 0.833).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] function of patients with exfoliation syndrome (XFS) with cataract.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Marchesani-Weill Syndrome

    lens.[en.wikipedia.org] Channels: Cataract Surgery, Refractive Posted 5/8/2012 This video demonstrates the use of a femtosecond laser in a patient with Weill- Marchesani syndrome and subluxated cataract[eyetube.net] A lens dislocation caused by Weill-Marchesani syndrome Overview Weill-Marchesani syndrome (also known as Spherophakia-brachymorphia syndrome , congenital mesodermal dystrophy[wikidoc.org]

  • Aphakia

    We present two patients with Marfan syndrome and bilateral crystalline lens dislocation who underwent bilateral lens extraction and Artisan aphakia intraocular lens (IOL)[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Anterior capsule fibrosis was noted in 5 eyes with advanced cataract (1 with total cataract, 4 with partially resorbed lens).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Aphakia is mainly congenital or as result of lens dislocation and subluxation 379.31 Excludes cataract extraction status ( V45.61 ) ICD-9-CM Volume 2 Index entries containing[icd9data.com]
