    How has ophthalmology changed in 2016?


    (Cont.) "Where do you see the most growth in the field of ophthalmology?"

    Sharon Fekrat, MD, predicted the most growth in the field would be in imaging technology. From portable devices for meibomian gland imaging, to aqueous angiography, as well as 3-D heads up retinal imaging and a dual-modality OCT and OCTA imaging system, advances were undeniably heavy in the technology space.

    Dr. Maloney saw major advancements coming for femtosecond laser cataract surgery. “Those of us who do this regularly feel we are stepping back into olden times when we do standard cataract surgery,” he said. Many reports over the past year continued to shed light on the improved surgical outcomes from FLACS.
