active inflammation has no influence in the timing of surgery.
oral corticosteroids are always contraindicated.
posterior synechiolysis is contraindicated.
if possible, an anterior chamber intraocular lens (lOL) should be avoided in favor of an in the bag IOL
Answer D. if possible, an anterior chamber intraocular lens (lOL) should be avoided in favor of an in the bag IOL
Explanation: The timing of cataract surgery should be such as to perform the surgery when the inflammation is at its least. As a rule surgery should not be performed until the uveitis has been quiescent for 6 to 12 months. Oral steroids probably should be administered the week before surgery and then tapered over the next two to three weeks. Synechialysis usually is performed. With the use of pupil-expanding techniques the iris can be stabilized and both capsulorhexis and phacoemulsification can be carried out, along with in-the-bag placement of the IOL.
