The Art of Eyes

sponsored by Optos

Anterior segment

Pseudo Color

“As an artist, working in a medical facility seeing both the eye’s fragility and its resilience provides a sense of the fleeting and the profound. The anatomical structures of the human eye are intriguing to me not only in their function but also their form. With artistic license (and a removal from context) these photographs become abstract, yet intimately familiar explorations of color and form.”

Kelly Aileen Oldstein, Certified Ophthalmic Photographer at Chester County Eye Care and Owner, Kelly Aileen Photography, West Chester, PA, USA.

Localized Calcification of a Hydrophilic Acrylic IOL

Some months after uneventful implantation of this hydrophilic acrylic IOL, the patient underwent further surgery for a retinal detachment repair, including vitrectomy with silicone oil tamponade. A few months later, the IOL exhibited a localized, central, round area of opacification on the anterior surface. Due to decreased visual function, the lens was explanted, and staining with alizarin red demonstrated that calcification caused the opacification.

IOL explanted by Robert Cionni and analyzed by Liliana Werner and Nick Mamalis, Salt Lake City, UT, USA.
