Quinsy Complication

This post is written by Sweta Senthil.
I don't know why she targeted me to make this mnemonic but it makes sense to remember the complication of Quinsy.

So mnemonic is "OJAS Pee"

Edema of larynx
Jugular Vein Thrombosis
Abscess of Lung/Pneumonitis
Septicemia, Spontaneous hemorrhage
Parapharyngeal Abscess

That's it!

IOLs- most important optical zone

Most common answer would be the centre.

That however is not the case as the light rays pass undeviated right through the centre.

In fact, phakic IOLs have an opening right in the centre for aqueous to circulate.

The most important part is the pericentral area, as the refracted rays through this area get focussed on the macula.
