Virtual glaucoma clinics: the future of patient management?Virtual glaucoma clinics were create to allow for rapid and reliable patient assessment. Within these clinics, data is collected by nursing and non-medical staff and is then reviewed virtually by a senior ophthalmologist. However, despite it’s benefits to the healthcare system as a whole, it is vital to confirm that patients are satisfied with this aspect of service delivery and that patient education remains adequate.
Bionic lens can restore high-quality visionAn optometrist in British Columbia has developed an IOL that his company’s website says “is capable of restoring quality vision at all distances, without glasses, contact lenses or corneal refractive procedures, and without the vision problems that have plagued current accommodative and multifocal [IOL] designs.”
Glaucoma may be linked to allergensThe immune system may play a role in the development of glaucomatous optic neuropathy, according to the results of a newly published study.

Study examines why second corneal transplants are rejectedCorneal transplantations are successful in 90 percent of first-time procedures, but second allografts are rejected at three times the rate of the first surgeries. A new study published online by the American Journal of Transplantation sought to elucidate the reasons for these rejections.
New keratoprosthesis a viable alternative to corneal transplantA new epidescemetic keratoprosthesis implanted without total corneal trephination, is a viable alternative to corneal transplantation, according to researchers from Spain, Egypt, and Kuwait reporting in the British Journal of Ophthalmology.
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.
