OCT provides minute details of aqueous outflow pathways, motion
Schlemm’s canal and collector channels respond rapidly to changes in pressure gradients.
Femtosecond laser surgery still raising bar for cataract surgery outcomes
Femtosecond laser cataract surgery has demonstrated comparable safety, superior effectiveness, and greater efficiency compared with traditional phacoemulsification.
Image-guided system streamlines cataract surgery planning
A new image-guided system streamlines surgical planning for patients undergoing cataract surgery with implantation of a single-piece aspheric IOL or a multifocal IOL.
How Big Data is changing the game in cataract surgery
How Big Data is changing the game in cataract surgery
By 2020, there will be over 5,200 gigabytes of data available for every individual worldwide, she said. Ophthalmology seems ready for Big Data as evidenced by the findings dating back to the 1990s.
Viral-mediated gene therapy approaches for retinal degeneration
Kimberly Drenser, MD, PhD, explains that there is hope for treating these patients with the advent of viral-mediated, gene replacement therapy and new synthetic replacement molecules for inherited retinal degenerations.
Better alternatives to standalone prostaglandin analog therapy
Physicians have the option of various adjunctive therapy when prostaglandin analog therapy alone is not sufficiently potent to lower IOP, i.e., they can add one agent, a fixed-combination therapy, or perform selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT).
Graft failure: Techniques for best outcomes the second time around
When a graft fails, surgeons have three factors to consider: the reason for the graft failure, the chances of success with a second surgery, and what has to be done differently to ensure the success of a new graft, said Francis Price Jr., MD.
High myopia: Global pandemic with genetic and environmental causes
Singapore—The manner in which myopia works has been a mystery until recently when investigators began making inroads into how the disease progresses. This knowledge likely is going to result in lifestyle changes, said Jodhbir Mehta, MBBS, PhD.
Trends in U.S. refractive surgery: 2015 ISRS survey
The 2015 International Society of Refractive Surgery survey, the twentieth such survey and the seventh year published online, presents new findings about surgeons’ preferences in corneal and lens-based surgeries, premium intraocular lenses (IOLs), and femtosecond cataract surgery.
