Glaucoma monitoring implant receives CE markAn implantable glaucoma sensor has received CE mark approval for marketing in the European Union. The sensor (Eyemate, Implandata Ophthalmic Products) can provide frequent IOP readings, informing patients and their physicians about how the pressure changes by time of day and from one day to another.
Vitrectomy beats scleral buckling in rhegmatogenous retinal detachment studyEyes operated on with pars plana vitrectomy needed fewer reoperations over 180 days than eyes subjected to scleral buckling (SB) in a retrospective comparison of patients with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD).
Researchers image single cell deaths in glaucoma patientsA new imaging technique can show the deaths of individual cells in people with glaucoma by labelling the cells with fluorescent dye, according to researchers. The approach might eventually be used to diagnosis the disease in its early stages or measure its progression.
Posterior IOLs effective in keratoconusPosterior chamber phakic IOLs can correct refractive errors associated with keratoconus and can also be combined with other surgical techniques when necessary, according to researchers.
The importance of being honestOne of the biggest challenges for ophthalmologists, especially in the field of refractive surgery, is to define ourselves (in professional terms) and set our goals.
ECP provides primary secondary therapy option for glaucomaFor 20 years I have effectively employed endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (ECP) as a primary or secondary line of glaucoma treatment. ECP is a minimally invasive glaucoma surgical (MIGS) option capable of reducing IOP in the majority of patients and can potentially eliminate the need for drainage surgery, including trabeculectomy (trab) and glaucoma drainage devices (GDDs).
Laser trabeculoplasty suitable for all open-angle glaucoma patientsProstaglandin-based topical therapy has been the ‘go-to treatment’ for open-angle glaucoma for decades. In contrast, laser trabeculoplasty has conventionally remained reserved for patients unresponsive or unable to adhere to medication-based therapy.
Rituximab appears to cure Mooren’s ulcers in 5 patientsMooren’s ulcers completely healed in 5 patients treated with rituximab after conventional treatment failed, according to researchers.
Global eye care hope soars with airborne teaching hospitalAn aircraft that houses an ophthalmic teaching hospital, containing an on-board operating theatre, training and broadcasting facilities, and treatment rooms, recently visited London Stansted Airport in the UK.
Confocal scanner gives ophthalmologists valuable new toolMost ocular structures become luminescent for a short time when exposed to a light source of appropriate wavelength; this phenomenon is known as autofluorescence (AF). AF is due to the presence of fluorescent substances called fluorophores.
