Keys to IOL power selection in pseudophakic children
Highly variable myopia shifts can occur in pseudophakic children. IOL exchange seems to be an acceptable option for treating the high myopia that can develop with lens implantation in children. However, the use of IOLs in growing eyes remains controversial, and outcomes are uncertain because of lack of data, according to Courtney Kraus, MD.
Novel device provides new look at meibomian glands
A new device provides dynamic images of the meibomian glands and allows ophthalmologists to assess meibomian gland health and function from a new perspective.
Managing diabetic retinopathy: Annual ocular evaluations are key
Managing diabetic retinopathy: Annual ocular evaluations are key
Many patients have diabetes for between 10 and 20 years or more before DR develops, so the key to managing ocular complications in patients with diabetes is regular evaluations.
Questions remain if anti-VEGF therapy influences atrophy in neovascular AMD
Questions remain if anti-VEGF therapy influences atrophy in neovascular AMD
Analysis of the Harbor Study data could not definitively answer the question about whether anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapies influence the development of atrophy in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). However, investigators did find that the visual acuity (VA) continued to improve in patients treated with monthly and as-needed drug regimens and that certain risk factors can predict development of atrophy, according to Srinivas Sadda, MD.
4 treatment strategies for managing retinal vein occlusions
4 treatment strategies for managing retinal vein occlusions
Although much progress has been made in treating retinal vein occlusions, much still needs to be done. Julia Haller, MD, described the four-step, evidence-based approach that she uses to treat these patients
2014 brought improvements in refractive accuracy with technologic evolutions
Taking a look at the improvements made this past year in refractive accuracy through several new technologic evolutions.
Clinical Diagnosis 2014: Improvements in imaging, corneal biomechanics take center stage
The acquisition of corneal topographic values saw an advancement this year via Scheimpflug imaging.
Orbital fractures: Weighing criteria for timing of repair
Not all orbital fractures need to be repaired, and not all fractures need to be repaired early after the patient sustains an insult. However, early repair of orbital factures can be beneficial for some patients. Ferreting out who those patients involves some special consideration.
Advances in refractive accuracy gain traction through technologic evolutions
A look at how crosslinking applications, topography-guided ablations, along with the introduction of the Symfony lens, dominated refractive surgery this past year.
Ocular surface therapy and mydriasis focus of 2014
An examination of the advancements made in drug therapy this past year includes ocular surface therapy, the approval of an anti-inflammatory mydriatic agent, and several dry eye drugs.
