Cataract/Anterior Segment, Retina/Vitreous
In this interview from AAO 2015, Dr. Andre Witkin discusses his paper published in the July issue of Ophthalmology, describing a rare syndrome of hemorrhagic occlusive retinal vasculitis that develops after uncomplicated cataract surgery. The retrospective case series describes 6 patients (11 eyes) who suffered significant, painless vision loss despite aggressive treatment with corticosteroids, anti-VEGF agents and panretinal photocoagulation. Dr. Witkin discusses the findings on fluorescein angiography and fundus photography, as well as the possible association with intracameral vancomycin.
