Can retinal ganglion cellular dysfunction reverse itself by IOP decrease after trabeculectomy?
Ganglion cellular dysfunction may reverse itself as the result of a substantial decrease in IOP after trabeculectomy in patients with glaucoma, according to John Mark S. de Leon, MD.
Scleral implant procedure effective in restoring near vision for presbyopia
A scleral spacing procedure for the treatment of presbyopia restored near vision in presbyopic emmetropic patients without adverse effects.
Anterior segment OCT helps define variations in epithelial thickening
Anterior-segment optical coherence tomography was used to characterize changes in the corneal epithelial thickness patterns after myopic LASIK and PRK.
Specialty lens advances expand options for patients with corneal ectasia
Specialty lenses are filling the gap for patients with corneal ectasia who previously were considered intolerant of contact lenses.
Improving LASIK outcomes: Addition of CXL for corneal stability
Achieving super-vision after LASIK may rest on the addition of corneal collagen crosslinking around the time of surgery.
Examining the impact of poor vision in a hospital setting
Understanding the magnitude of patients with poor vision in a hospital setting is crucial in developing interventions that potentially limit vision-related morbidity, such as falls, said Jeffrey R. Willis, MD, PhD.
Accommodating IOL: 2 years follow-up
The Synchrony dual-optic accommodative intraocular lens (Abbott Medical Optics) seems to be clinically safe and effective after 2 years of follow-up. The visual function at intermediate and far improved rapidly postoperatively. Half of patients require a +1 D prescription for near vision.
How new methodology improves accuracy for IOL power selection
A new method being developed to improve the accuracy of IOL power calculations for cataract surgery uses pattern recognition as its basis.
Intracameral antibiotics a must to avoid infection post-cataract surgery
The creation of a sufficiently long-internal incision as well as stromal hydration and a moderate final IOP are effective steps to reduce fluid ingress—and lower risk of infection—into the eye following cataract surgery, according to Neal Shorstein, MD.
Why immunomodulation is the next logical step in glaucoma control
Research in glaucoma that evaluates the molecular interactions between resident and systemic immune cells and neurons is progressing with the goal of providing translational applications for immunomodulation as a neuroprotective strategy in patients with glaucoma, said Gülgün Tezel, MD.
