AIM: To evaluate the examination of visual electroph-ysiology for the prognosis of cataract before phacoemulsification. METHODS: All of 253 cataract patients whose fundus was unclear by direct ophthalmoscope or binocular indirective ophthalmoscope underwent phacoemulsification in our hospital from Jan. 2009 to Oct. 2010. Retina and optic nerve were preoperatively examined by visual electrophysiology to estimate the prognosis of cataract. RESULTS: The examination of visual electrophysiology showed the prognosis was poor in 47 cases. Phacoemulsification was performed in 37 cases, including 35 cases with poor prognosis (the increase of visual acuity postoperatively ≤2), 2 cases with well prognosis (the increase of visual acuity postoperatively ≥2), 10 cases gave up the surgery. 206 cases had well prognosis through examination and 201 cases underwent phacoemulsification. 199 cases had well prognosis (the increase of visual acuity postoperatively >2), poor prognosis in 2 cases (the increase of visual acuity postoperatively ≤2), 5 cases couldn't undergo surgery for systemic diseases. CONCLUSION: The examination of visual electrophysiology on retina and optic nerve before phacoemulsification have good predictability in the prognosis of cataract.

AIM: To evaluate the efficacy of various surgical techniques for correcting different types of senile blepharoptosis. METHODS: From June 2008 to October 2011, 150 cases (164 eyes) patients with senile blepharoptosis underwent surgical treatment. Patients with severe blepharoptosis received frontalis muscle flap suspensio, patients with moderate blepharoptosis get levator palpebrae superioris muscle shortening and those with mild blepharoptosis underwent pleating of levator palpebrae superioris. RESULTS: After 3-month to 1-year follow-up, 154 (93.9%) eyes get satisfactory results and 10 (6.1%) eyes obtained better results. CONCLUSION: In order to achieve the best correction in patients with blepharoptosis, it is important that making objective and careful preoperative examinations, selecting appropriate operation managements according to the levator palpebrae superioris muscle strength, the degrees of blepharoptosis and combined with experience.
