Smartphone marker serves as toric point of reference
A new device that can be plugged into a smartphone earjack is a convenient, easy way to make reference marks on the eye for placement of toric lenses and limbal incisions.
Next generation of PROKERA biologic corneal bandage devices
The next generation of biologic corneal bandage devices can reduce inflammation and promote healing for an extended range of ocular surface conditions from mild to severe.
Ocular nutrition: What physicians should be discussing with patients
Ocular nutrition: What physicians should be discussing with patients
The AREDS 1 and 2 studies provide important information about the role of ocular nutrition in AMD. However, to benefit patients, the findings must be condensed into clear and concise advice that will help them select appropriate vitamin supplements and follow a healthy lifestyle.
State-of-the-art 3-D video designed for ophthalmic surgery
An upgraded three-dimensional viewing and recording system for ophthalmic surgery is a useful tool for the surgeon and surgical team members in the operating room.
Diagnostic, surgical planning device optimizes corneal inlay outcomes
A new guidance device is one of the first instruments of its kind to provide surgeons with objective data pre- and postoperatively for placement of a small-aperture corneal inlay (Kamra, AcuFocus).
Trabeculectomy may have differential effects in glaucoma field loss
Regional rather than global analysis of visual fields may produce more precise assessments of glaucomatous progression following trabeculectomy, since the surgery seems to have differential effects.
Corneal confocal microscopy after CXL for keratoconus
Corneal confocal microscopy may be a useful tool for physicians performing corneal collagen crosslinking.
Nutritional therapy may fuel outcomes for moderate AMD
An analysis of patient data and DNA from the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) indicates that two genetic polymorphisms predict a differential response to antioxidants and zinc, the components of the AREDS formulation.
Small aperture corneal inlay and presbyopia
Procedure may increase near and intermediation vision without compromising stereopsis
Varying ranibizumab therapy may improve DME results
A switch from bevacizumab to ranibizumab and, in some patients, a subsequent higher dose of ranibizumab, resulted in further improvement for patients with diabetic macular edema in a recent study.
