Pattern recognition receptor research yields promising results in keratitis
New research into pattern-recognition receptors is yielding promising therapies that target the specific pathogens and inflammatory pathways in keratitis, researchers said.
Why 'the more the merrier' doesn't apply to glaucoma monitoring
Though ocular hypertension may be the only modifiable risk factor for glaucoma, the second-leading cause of sight loss in the United Kingdom, monitoring for ocular hypertension more than twice a year is not efficient, researchers said.
Intravitreal aflibercept effective in radiation retinopathy
Like bevacizumab and ranibizumab, aflibercept has been shown to be effective in treating radiation retinopathy. In a study, patients experienced improved visual acuity and resolution of cystoid macular edema.
Functional reading scores useful for geographic atrophy
Best-corrected visual acuity does not capture the degree of impairment in some patients, such as those with geographic atrophy, particularly as they try to read across a page. A new patient-reported outcome measure has been found to correlate well with a more objective measurement of performance.
Aflibercept effects mild in patients not responding to ranibizumab
Switching from ranibizumab to aflibercept may allow some patients to extend the time between treatments for neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD), researchers say.
New theory may address idiopathic macular holes
The evaluation of multiple optical coherence tomography images supports the combined tractional-hydration theory of idiopathic macular hole formation, progression, and closure.
Epimacular brachytherapy not promising in wet AMD
Epimacular brachytherapy does not look promising as a treatment for previously-treated neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD), investigators say.
New treatments developed for inherited retinal diseases
At least 40 new treatments for inherited retinal diseases are being developed, but only two are currently commercially available, according to the authors of a new review.
Violating ‘taboos’ to treat a suprachoroidal hemorrhage
Violating ‘taboos’ to treat a suprachoroidal hemorrhage
A group of surgeons were faced with a suprachoroidal hemorrhage following trauma, and decided to break the ‘rules’ when tackling the case, and came out with surprisingly good results.
Surgery with 25- and 27-gauge tools mostly similar with minor variances
A comparison of small-gauge instrumentation reveals some subtle differences in surgical technique.
