PVD after phaco affects quality of vision, reading speed
PVD after phaco affects quality of vision, reading speed
Findings evaluating the incidence of posterior vitreous detachment on quality of vision and reading speed have been released.
Topical IL-1 receptor blocker manages signs, symptoms of dry eye
A therapeutic in development blocks interleukin-1—a major player in the initiation and maintenance of the inflammatory response—and may help patients with moderate to severe dry eye disease.
Study: Home monitoring device identifies new CNV faster with less vision loss
Study: Home monitoring device identifies new CNV faster with less vision loss
Earlier detection of new choroidal neovascularization using a home monitoring device may identify progression faster than when relying on standard care alone, suggests a recent study.
Using femtosecond laser in pediatric Marfan’s syndrome with ectopia lentis
A femtosecond laser can create circular, well-centered capsulotomies to facilitate implantation of capsular tension rings and IOLs without decentration in pediatric patients with Marfan’s syndrome. Tim Schultz, MD, and H. Burkhard Dick, MD, of the University Eye Clinic Bochum, Bochum, Germany, described the case of a 10-year-old boy with Marfan’s syndrome.

Specialty lens advances expand options for patients with corneal ectasia
Specialty lenses are filling the gap for patients with corneal ectasia who previously were considered intolerant of contact lenses.
Update on uveitis
Some older and newer treatments being studied for treating uveitis include iontophoresis, contact lenses, and nanoparticles.
Postop haze not affected by MMC
Mitomycin C following wavefront-guided PRK for high myopia had no dose-dependent effect on haze scores throughout the study.
To lift or not to lift?
A new strategy that uses the femtosecond laser to make a side cut for postLASIK re-treatment may reduce the incidence of epithelial ingrowth.
Trifocal diffractive intraocular lens reduces spectacle dependency
A trifocal diffractive intraocular lens (FineVision IOL, PhysIOL) reduces spectacle dependence after cataract surgery and provides patient satisfaction.
