Age-related cataracts usually affect both eyes. In most cases, the clouded endogenic lens is replaced surgically with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL), with a few weeks between eye surgeries. However, the cataract surgery can alternatively be performed on both eyes on the same day, with potential advantages and disadvantages. A recent Cochrane review concluded that, overall, there are unlikely to be any large, clinically important differences between the results of both approaches. However, the quality of evidence of the study results summarized in the systematic review was assessed as moderate to very low. German professional societies still do not recommend the simultaneous bilateral cataract operation.

Virtual Reality Therapy Promising for Agoraphobia
A novel virtual reality (VR) intervention significantly reduces agoraphobia in patients with psychosis, new research suggests. The cognitive-behavioral therapy–based treatment was particularly effective for patients with the highest level of avoidance of everyday situations. Immersive VR involves interactive three-dimensional computer-generated environments that produce the sensation of being in the real world. For patients with psychosis, dealing with the real world can be an anxious experience, particularly if they experience verbal or auditory hallucinations. Some may develop agoraphobia and start to avoid places or situations. A virtual environment allows patients to practice dealing with situations that make them anxious or uncomfortable and to learn to reengage in everyday situations.
RE: Home remedy to stop bleeding from finger cut rapidly?
@gagan-deep Often these injuries can be treated at home, but it is important that a person knows how to do this safely. Whoever is treating the wound should wash their hands and wear latex gloves if possible. Applying pressure to the wound is the best way to stop it bleeding. Place a clean and dry piece of material such as a bandage, towel, or cloth on the wound and apply pressure with both hands. Maintain firm and continuous pressure until the bleeding has stopped. Checking too soon to see if the bleeding has stopped may interfere with the healing process. Reducing the flow of blood will also help stop the bleeding, so raise the affected area if possible. If the injury is to the hand or arm, simply raise it above the head. If the injury is to a lower limb, lie down and raise the affected area above the level of the heart. Applying ice to a wound will constrict the blood vessels, allowing a clot to form more quickly and stop the bleeding.
