Two-year outcomes good for “treat and extend” AMD therapyUsing a treat-and-extend regimen in routine clinical practice for patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) achieves good visual outcomes and decreases treatments and clinic visits, according to a study in Ophthalmology.
Thermography useful in evaluating filtering bleb functionBecause the temperature decrease in the filtering bleb after trabeculectomy provides information about its function, a new ocular surface-oriented, infrared radiation thermographic device (TG 1000, Tomey) may help evaluate filtering bleb function. The device is easy to handle and creates reproducible measurements, according to new research published in the Journal of Glaucoma.
Ocriplasmin an option for FTMH and vitreomacular adhesionOcriplasmin (Jetrea, ThromboGenics) is an option for the management of patients who have full-thickness macular hole (FTMH) and vitreomacular adhesion, according to an article in press in the American Journal of Ophthalmology.

CXL with epithelial disruption safely and effectively treats ectasiaCorneal collagen crosslinking (CXL) with epithelial disruption appears to safely and effectively treat keratoconus or iatrogenic corneal ectasia, according to a study recently published in Eye. In fact, patients may tolerate the approach better than they tolerate the technique involving complete removal of the epithelium, say the authors, from the Corneoplastic Unit and Eye Bank of Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead, UK.
Improved optical quality with SMILEIn SMILE the anterior-most stromal lamellae remain intact postoperatively. Here, the author discusses the biomechanical advantages of preserving the stronger anterior stroma and the resulting effects on spherical aberration control and optical quality.
Wavefront-guided vs wavefront-optimized LASIK in hyperopes: is there a winner?In this article, the authors discuss how WF?guided and WF-optimized LASIK performed on hyperopic patients can provide similar results in terms of safety, contrast sensitivity and refractive error.
