Tracking growth of ultra-widefield imaging in disease managementUltra-widefield imaging has become an important component of a thorough eye exam and is taking on a larger role in retina and comprehensive ophthalmology.
OCTA system offers exquisite views
OCTA system offers exquisite viewsA new high-density OCT angiography system (AngioVueHD, OptoVue) provides exquisite views of the retinal microvasculature without the need for injection of fluorescein dye.
‘What is it with these people?’After being in the field for 35 years, I still wonder, “What is it with these people?” Here are a few other examples of what I learned from those instances.
Insights on preventing TRD in PDR patients after Avastin, vitrectomyStudy results provide new information about the risk and strategies for preventing tractional retinal detachment (TRD) development or progression in eyes with severe proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) receiving intravitreal bevacizumab (Avastin, Genentech) prior to vitrectomy.
Novel therapies could stem burden of diabetic eye diseaseA better understanding of the pathophysiologic mechanisms of diabetes has resulted in improved control of its local and systemic comorbidities. Further developments are needed, however, considering the growing number of diabetic patients and who are at risk for late-stage diabetic eye disease.
Dr. Mali's top 5 stories in ophthalmology in 2017 (so far)So far, 2017 has been a very exciting year for both ophthalmology and healthcare as a whole. We still have a few months left for more excitement, so stay tuned!
Scleral tunnel ‘glued’ fixation technique for slipped IOLs
Scleral tunnel ‘glued’ fixation technique for slipped IOLsScleral tunnel, “glued” fixation technique works better than alternative fixation techniques in cases where intraocular lenses (IOLs) cannot be placed in capsular bag or in the sulcus, according to Sumit Garg, MD.
Small-aperture IOL offers advantages over other presbyopia lenses
Small-aperture IOL offers advantages over other presbyopia lensesA new small-aperture intraocular lens (IOL) extends patients’ depth of focus as well as multifocal IOLs with fewer dysphotopsias, researchers say.

ARMOR surveillance study update gives current insights on antibiotic resistance for clinical ocular isolatesThe most recent analyses of data from the ARMOR (Antibiotic Resistance Monitoring in Ocular micRoorganisms) Surveillance Program can guide clinicians choosing antibiotic therapy for initial empiric therapy and infection prophylaxis. The information also reinforces the importance of prudent antibiotic prescribing to limit the development of bacterial resistance to existing options, according to Penny Asbell, MD.
