Nanophotonics-based implant may enable at-home IOP monitoring
A nanophotonics-based device implanted in the eye may one day enable patients with glaucoma to monitor their IOP from home.
SLT without gonioscopy lens successful
Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) without the use of a gonioscopy lens was performed successfully and still decreased IOP over 6 months, said Michael Belkin, MD.
Curiosity-driven research leads to award-winning discoveries
Researchers should continue to explore offhand leads or spur-of-the-moment ideas, said 2005 Nobel laureate Barry Marshall, FRACP, FRS, FAA. These very actions have sometimes led to world-changing, award-winning research.
Predictors for the number of AMD injections
Retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP) lesions, treatment with ranibizumab, the absence of subretinal fluid, and the absence of subretinal pigment epithelium fluid (RPE) were associated with fewer injections for neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) among participants from the Comparison of AMD Treatments Trials (CATT), said Daniel F. Martin, MD.
Retinal inflammation: Novel drug delivery
Nanomedicine that targets activated microglia and neuro-inflammation may one day be a potential therapy for age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, and other eye diseases, said Rangaramanujam Kannan, PhD.
