With the advent of phacoemulsification techniques for cataract extraction, using small incisions and implantation of foldable intraocular lenses (IOL), the incidence of PCMO has greatly reduced compared to previously common intracapsular cataract extraction (ICCE) and extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE) techniques used routinely some 30 years ago.
The Royal College of Ophthalmologists' Cataract Surgery Guidelines (Sept 2010) state the incidence of PCMO as 1.
The differential diagnosis of PCMO includes macular oedema due to diabetes, retinal vein occlusion (RVO), uveitis, hypertensive retinopathy, retinal degenerations, and choroidal tumours.
Surgical complications that predispose eyes to PCMO include vitreous loss, vitreous traction at incision sites, vitrectomy for retained lens fragments, iris trauma, posterior capsule rupture, intraocular lens (IOL) dislocation, early postoperative capsulotomy, and the use of iris-fixated or anterior chamber IOLs.
The development of PCMO is often associated with recurrence of post-operative anterior uveitis.
Most cases of angiographic or subclinical PCMO will resolve spontaneously.
Audit of incidence of PCMO at Queen Victoria Hospital (QVH)
In a previous audit of the nurse-led cataract post-operative clinic it was noted that the incidence of PCMO was 3.
6% stated in RCO cataract guidelines, which is assumed to have included only clinically significant PCMO and not relied upon OCT for diagnosis, given the time when the Cataract National Dataset was conducted.
Following the audit, it was recommended to make it standard practice at QVH to initiate NSAIDs prophylactically immediately following cataract surgery to further reduce the incidence of PCMO in high risk cases.
Conversely, synthetic PCMO enables extended oil drain intervals, where depending on the OEM and driving patterns and operating conditions, can be anywhere from one oil change every 6 to 12 months to upwards of one every 18 to 24 months, suppressing overall volume and growth rates.
