Virtual trial designed to explore AMD monitoringConstructing vignettes from retina images and data can serve as a useful low-cost alternative to clinical trials for evaluating different screening approaches, researchers said. The researchers, from seven British medical centres, have taken this approach in a virtual trial to determine whether community optometrists can assess the risk that quiescent neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) lesions can reawaken.
Cataract surgery cuts glaucoma risk in eyes with pseudoexfoliationCataract surgery appears to reduce the risk of glaucoma in eyes with pseudoexfoliation (PEX) syndrome, researchers said.
Managing challenges in giant retinal tear re-attachmentGiant retinal tears pose outsize challenges for physicians, including the risks of hemorrhage, heavy fluid droplets, and macular holes, according to Gerardo Ledesma-Gil, MD, who was challenged with both of these complications in a recent case.

Novel software measures vessel tortuosity in ROPThe Novel Evidenced Assessment of Tortuosity (NEAT) system is intuitive and works even with poor images, according to its creators, Konstantinos Balaskas and his colleagues at Manchester Royal Eye Hospital and five other centres in the United Kingdom.
Tea tree oil proposed for blepharitisThough there is scant research to guide treatment, tea tree oil shampoo might successfully improve some cases of blepharitis, according to two physicians at the Eye Unit, Southampton General Hospital, Southampton, United Kingdom.
Reducing posterior capsular ruptureRounded phaco tips reduce the risk of posterior capsule rupture, increasing the safety of phacoemulsification. The Dewey Radius Tip, which is used exactly like a sharp-edged phaco needle, has rounded edges. This reduces the risk of posterior capsule rupture during cataract surgery.

Single-layered closure successful in lower eyelid reconstructionA single-layered closure technique may work as well as a double-layered closure technique in lower eyelid reconstruction, a new study suggested.
Validating long-term toric IOL performanceFive years of experience with the Rayner T-flex aspheric IOL show it to be a safe, highly effective long-term method of correcting the widest possible range of sphere and cylinder errors in pseudophakic patients with pre-existing corneal astigmatism.
New approach to corneal power estimation in eyes with previous corneal refractive surgery and keratoconus eyesThe use of a keratometric index to estimate total corneal power calculation is imprecise, especially in corneas with keratoconus or after myopic laser refractive surgery. The errors can be reduced by using an adjusted keratometric index, consisting of a variable keratometric index that depends on the radius of the anterior corneal surface.
MICS & MIGS: combined surgery with microstent devicesThe combination of MICS and MIGS can offer an effective surgical treatment for POAG when the reduction of IOP following cataract surgery alone is not sufficient to reduce a patient’s need for glaucoma therapies.
