Anti-VEGF agent therapy rivals laser for macular edema in BRVO
Patients treated with aflibercept intravitreal injections for macular edema associated with branch retinal vein occlusion had a significantly greater decrease in central retinal thickness and significantly greater improvement in vision compared with laser at the end of the 52-week VIBRANT trial.
Digital imaging screening may identify infants with referral-warranted ROP
A telemedicine system for detecting retinopathy of prematurity in high-risk infants may help streamline examination and allow ophthalmologists to concentrate on those children with the greatest need.
Ranibizumab effective for managing pigment epithelial detachments
Ranibizumab effectively managed pigment epithelial detachments in patients with wet age-related macular degeneration regardless of size at baseline.
Mitomycin C: Prophylactic, therapeutic, creative benefits
Mitomycin C, when used in accordance with the approved guidelines, can be beneficial but can cause haze with long exposures and higher concentrations.
Complex processes drive ocular surface disease
Ocular surface disease and health are affected by numerous interactions and cascades with complex mechanisms in disease states.
Strategies for surgical intervention aid in peripheral corneal disease
Peripheral melting disorders require surgical intervention when all else has failed and there is an impending risk of perforation. A peripheral C- or banana-shaped graft can restore tectonic integrity while maintaining a reasonable corneal contour to preserve vision.
Instrumentation, imaging advances make retina surgery safer
For retinal surgery, the latest generation of instrumentation is anticipated to be accompanied by markedly improved fluidics, precision, and faster patient recovery.
Laser advances take retina specialty to new levels of treatment, care
Developments in lasers, along with genetic engineering, are showing promise as technologies that may shape the future of retina treatment.
Study: Effect of dry eye products, warm compress for MGD therapy
A line of products used for the temporary relief of burning and irritation caused by dry eye was shown to increased meibomian gland function from baseline compared with warm compresses.
Imaging technology advances meibomian gland visualization
Advances to an imaging technology may assist clinicians in improving a diagnosis of meibomian gland dysfunction with objective examination of patients’ tear film lipid layer, blink profile, and meibomian gland structure and function.
