Study identifies parameters that help diagnose ectatic disease
Topometric and tomographic parameters helped researchers detect keratoconus in a study, but the integration of curvature and 3D analysis is needed to identify milder forms of ectatic corneal disease.
Idiopathic macular holes: When to perform vitrectomy
Retina specialists and comprehensive ophthalmologists should identify full thickness macula holes and, generally, recommend a vitrectomy to close them and improve vision.
Using a contact lens to treat corneal edema after cataract surgery
A small study of using a new contact lens to treat corneal edema after cataract surgery reported positive results.
A closer look at riboflavin application for corneal collagen crosslinking
Corneal collagen crosslinking with riboflavin works well but requires further exploration to identify the best approach for various types of patients.
Ultra-thin DSAEK delivers better results than standard DSAEK
Ultrathin Descemet’s stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) is associated with faster visual recovery and better visual acuity in a study compared ultrathin with standard DSAEK.
Herpes simplex virus disease often misdiagnosed in children
Herpes simplex virus in children is often diagnosed late or misdiagnosed, and children can experience visual loss due to complications or amblyopia.
Novel contact lens helps treat corneal edema after cataract surgery
A new contact lens to treat corneal edema after cataract surgery had favorable results in a group of 33 patients with corneal edema after extracapsular cataract extraction and IOL implantation and refractive lens exchange.
Integrin peptide yields positive outcomes for VMA, VMT in phase II trial
A new possible therapy for vitreomacular adhesion and vitreomacular traction had positive results in a phase II trial.
