This retrospective review measured the effect of spherical aberration corrections by aspheric IOLs based on pupil diameter for two aspheric IOLs, the Tecnis ZCB00 and the HOYA NY-60. When pupil diameters are smaller than 3.4 mm for the Tecnis ZCB00 and 3.7 mm for the HOYA NY-60, spherical aberration correction using these aspheric IOLs was ineffective. About 10 percent of the eyes showed smaller pupil size than the minimum effective diameter under mesopic conditions and had no benefit from the aspheric IOLs.

The FDA has issued an updated alert for an expanded recall of all lots of ALL sterile products repackaged and distributed by Clinical Specialties Compounding Pharmacy (Augusta, Ga.) due to lack of sterility assurance. The recall of all sterile products is conducted in follow-up to concerns regarding practices at the site that cannot assure the sterility of the products. Until further notice, healthcare providers should stop using all sterile products distributed by Clinical Specialties Compounding Pharmacy and return them to the company.
On March 18, Clinical Specialties voluntarily recalled its Avastin (bevacizumab, Genentech, South San Francisco) unit dose syringes. The product has resulted in or potentially could result in an infection within the eye. Clinical Specialties received reports of endophthalmitis infections from physicians’ offices. This product was being used solely in an off-label use by ophthalmologists for macular degeneration and is packaged in sterile syringes distributed to doctors’ offices in Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina, and Indiana between October 19, 2012 and March 19, 2013.
