Capsule opacification with 2 different IOLs: 3-year resultsThis follow-up study found anterior capsule opacification development and anterior capsule retraction to be more frequent 3 years after cataract surgery when an IOL with interrupted sharp optic edge at the optic–haptic junction is implanted, compared with an IOL with a continuous edge.
Navigated panretinal photocoagulation vs conventional pattern laser for PDRAn interventional trial recently compared standard and navigated pattern PRP techniques. In this article, Dr Kozak explains how continuous prepositioning and stabilisation of the aiming beam with navigated PRP, enables pattern application of the more effective longer pulse durations while reducing treatment times and broadens therapeutic options in proliferative diabetic retinopathy.
Patients with symptomatic vitreomacular adhesion (VMA) find that a single intravitreal injection of ocriplasmin improves their vision, according to an ancillary analysis of two multicentre randomised clinical trials reported in JAMA Opthalmology.
In this article, Dr Ianchulev discusses MIGS supraciliary microstenting, a compelling new approach for outflow enhancement that results in sustained reduction of IOP and anti-hypertensive topical medication use in OAG patients.
In this article, the authors present their recent findings on drug-eluting, extended-wear contact lenses for glaucoma and discuss how these lenses may provide week-long IOP reduction with just one day of wear.
Exfoliative glaucoma can prove to be a particularly difficult disease for opthalmologists to manage. In this article, aspects of IOP-lowering therapy specific to this type of glaucoma are considered, as well as the range of treatments available and the potential advantages and challenges associated with each therapy.
