    Cataract/Anterior Segment, Complications, Uveitis

    Dr. Debra Goldstein offers clinical pearls on how to identify and manage 2 underrecognized causes of inflammation after cataract surgery. Aside from chronic endophthalmitis, she finds that postoperative inflammation is often caused by undiagnosed preoperative inflammation. She recommends a thorough slit-lamp examination to identify inflammation prior to surgery. Another common cause is irritation from an IOL that is chafing against the iris, often occurring with 1-piece acrylic lenses that are placed in the sulcus. Slit lamp exams and ultrasound biomicroscopy are useful in assessing whether an IOL is mispositioned.
