Pearls for better diagnosis, treatment of red eye
Ophthalmologists should consider various potential problems, including a number of systemic conditions and infections, when examining a rare or persistent red eye.
Neuroprotective drug may be possible NAION therapy
Non-arteritic ischemic optic neuropathy can be difficult to treat. A new drug under investigation aims to prevent further loss of vision from the condition.
Enhancing retinal surgery with 27-gauge instrumentation
Enhancing retinal surgery with 27-gauge instrumentation
The use of 27-gauge instrumentation provides several surgical advantages compared with larger tools in retinal surgery, particularly in difficult cases.
LASIK enhancements for premium IOLs more accurate with less dry eye
Ophthalmologists must be prepared to perform corneal refractive surgery enhancements after cataract surgery—and LASIK is often the optimal choice, according to Robert K. Maloney, MD.
Multifocals show similar results but lower power offers better vision range
Both the Tecnis multifocal +2.75 D and +4.00 D IOLs had good visual results, but the +2.75 D IOL had a better range of vision across near, intermediate, and distance.
Cyclophotocoagulation device can help lower IOP
Consider factors such as glaucoma severity, eye pigmentation, and medication use when selecting power settings for the MicroPulse P3 device.
European study with microstent demonstrates lowered IOP, use of fewer drugs
Patients with cataract surgery and microstent implantation had a lowered IOP and a reduced number of medications used at 3 years postoperatively
NSAID after Dropless approach shown to lower CME
There was clinically significant less CME in patients who received trans-zonular triamcinolone acetonide, moxifloxacin hydrochloride, and vancomycin—known as the Dropless approach—in addition to an NSAID after cataract surgery.
Agent in gene therapy promising for retinal dystrophy
Use of voretigene neparvovec in gene therapy demonstrates positive outcomes to treat a gene mutation in patients with retinal dystrophy.
Study: Not all topography devices are alike
Subclinical haze after CXL can affect corneal topography measurements; a comparison shows that measurements with four different devices cannot be used interchangeably.
