Know your options when expanding a pupil
Humans are creatures of habit, even ophthalmologists. Having learned to use one device for pupil expansion, it is easy to forget that there are alternative devices.
How building resilience may stall physician burnout
Mindfulness can help physicians manage stress—and may be effective in thwarting burnout.
Hypochlorous acid eyelid wash reduces bacterial load
Hypochlorous acid eyelid wash reduces bacterial load
Researchers studied the magnitude of bacterial load reduction on the surface of the skin 20 minutes after application of saline containing 0.01% pure hypochlorous acid as the preservative to the skin below the lower eyelid.
Endoscopy can aid treatment of pediatric nasolacrimal duct obstruction
Using an endoscope allows the clinician to visualize the tip of the probe and remove a pediatric nasolacrimal duct obstruction more easily, quickly, and accurately.
Why single-instrument screening for keratoconus remains a dream
The promise of simple, objective, single instrument-based screening for highly asymmetric keratoconus in patients considering LASIK is still more of an idea than reality. Multiple metrics can identify early keratoconus in a minority of affected eyes, but none of the metrics consistently identify early corneal abnormalities and none of the metrics identify the same eyes as being at elevated risk for ectatic disease.
New corneal inlay offers choice for presbyopia improvement
An implantable corneal inlay recently approved by the FDA gives ophthalmologists a new choice in treating presbyopia.
Visual cycle metabolites: Cause of AMD?
Visual cycle metabolites: Cause of AMD?
Oxidative stress stemming from a growing accumulation of visual cycle adducts may play an important role in the pathogenesis of AMD, suggest new findings.
Glaucoma may not be the disease you think it is
Glaucoma may not be the disease you think it is
Clinicians continue to explore the relationship between IOP and cerebrospinal fluid pressure in glaucoma.
New drape speeds ophthalmic surgery
New drape speeds ophthalmic surgery
Surgical draping for ophthalmic surgery has never been quick or easy—until now. A new drape design allows the surgeon or scrub nurse to fully drape the patient in seconds.
Drug-loaded plug eases adherence issues for patients, physicians
Results of two phase III trials with dexamethasone intracanalicular depot are highlighted. Both trials met the endpoints for postsurgical pain, but only one trial met the endpoints for postoperative inflammation
