Real-time intraoperative aberrometry enables better surgical outcomes
A new sequentially shifting wavefront device for intraoperative aberrometry provides continuous feedback on refraction during cataract surgery.
SMILE using femtosecond laser brings benefits for treating myopia
Small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) results in similar or better refractive outcomes compared with LASIK for the treatment of myopia and with a number of advantages.
Targeted prostate biopsy: Momentum grows, but questions remain
Use of targeted magnetic resonance/ultrasound fusion biopsy (“targeted biopsy”) resulted in the diagnosis of significantly more high-risk prostate cancers and significantly fewer low-risk cancers compared with a standardized systematic biopsy technique, reported the authors of a new study from the National Cancer Institute.
Dual-acting, anti-allergy agent delivers efficacy, safety, convenience
Olopatadine 0.2% is a well-tolerated, safe, and effective antihistamine/mast cell stabilizer for treating mild to severe allergic conjunctivitis in children and adults.
Laser refractive cataract surgery: Benefits in the eye of the beholder
Controversy continues over whether the femtosecond laser provides advantages in cataract surgery that justify its added cost.
GATT novel 360? ab interno glaucoma procedure
Gonioscopy-assisted transluminal trabeculotomy is a circumferential trabeculotomy performed via a minimally invasive, ab interno approach. Results from follow-up of 6 to 12 months in a series of 85 adult eyes with uncontrolled glaucoma show high IOP lowering, along with a reduced need for medication.
Ultrasound-based therapy effective for refractory glaucoma patients
Ultrasound circular cyclocoagulation is a non-invasive treatment for refractory glaucoma that is approved in Europe.
Multifacets of a multifocal IOL
A new +2.5 D add version of a multifocal IOL features a redesigned optic that enhances visual function at intermediate and distance and delivers excellent visual quality.
IOL delivers on visual quality, acuity
Aberration-free optic
Studies target myofibroblasts
Innovative pharmacological approaches investigated in haze prevention research
