New technology predicts conversion to POAG
Clinicians can predict which patients with ocular hypertension are most likely to develop primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) using short-wave automated perimetry, scanning laser polimetry, and confocal laser ophthalmoscopy, as well as the patient’s age, researchers said.
Earlier detection of diabetic retinopathy possible in children
Screening programmes could catch diabetic retinopathy in children earlier if they began screening 6 years after diabetes is diagnosed.
Fundus imaging results promising for early Alzheimer’s diagnosis
Studies in mice suggest that a technology based on topical endoscope fundus imaging could allow early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, researchers have said.
Clinical pearls for treating uveitis
Uveitis presents particular problems for ophthalmologists. Inflammation inside the eye can occur from so many causes that the diagnosis often requires painstaking, time-consuming investigation. As researchers have learned more about the disease, the possible etiologies and treatments have multiplied.
Google DeepMind searches for signs of retinopathy
Google is using its DeepMind computing system to search for early signs of diabetic retinopathy and neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD), the company announced this month.
Community monitoring of nAMD as effective as hospital monitoring
Community monitoring of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) can be just as effective as hospital-based monitoring, researchers say.
Techniques for treating narrow angle glaucoma
Clinicians have a variety of tools and options at their disposal to treat narrow angle glaucoma. Sunita Radhakrishnan, MD, provided an overview of these possibilities.
Glaucoma ‘tsunami’ bearing down on how EyeMDs will practice medicine
A tsunami of glaucoma is sweeping toward the U.S. healthcare system, according to Cynthia Mattox, MD. For many ophthalmologists, coping with the increased demand will mean teaming up with other eye-care professionals.
Precision medicine: Tracking glaucoma progression
Since glaucoma progresses faster in some patients than others, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and visual field progression analysis can be more useful than IOP in guiding treatment decisions.
Collaboration needs to exist between retinal, glaucoma specialists
J. Michael Jumper, MD, a retina specialist, described how retina treatments relate to glaucoma–not only injections, but also vitrectomy and laser treatments can trigger glaucoma.
