Opportunities and challenges in the world of ophthalmology in 2018As another year comes to an end, five members of Ophthalmology Times Europe’s Editorial Advisory Board reflect and share their perspectives on the exciting opportunities that lie ahead for ophthalmologists in 2018, whilst also considering the potential challenges.
Isopropyl nitrate poppers pose maculopathy riskPoppers containing isopropyl nitrate may cause foveal maculopathy, researchers say.
Steroid and NSAID combination prevents macular oedema after cataractsA combination of a topical corticosteroid and a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) is more effective than either one alone in reducing the risk of cystoid macular oedema (CME) after cataract surgery in nondiabetic patients, researchers say.
Testing at point of care for improved patient satisfaction, re-treatment ratesAfter spending a few months testing for dry eye and treating the tear film before doing preoperative measurements, the re-treatment rate dropped from 11% to 3%.
Adopting a multidiagnostic method for characterising the anterior segmentA multidiagnostic device is able to provide consistent measurements of refraction and ocular aberrations in healthy eyes. The consistency of refractive measurements is not dependent on the magnitude of the refractive error, with the same precision ability for moderate to high myopia and for hyperopia.
Long-term observation of SMILE gives better myopia prognosisLong-term observation of SMILE reveals high stability at various degrees of correction of myopia. This allows surgeons who apply this method of treatment to give patients a long-term prognosis.
Low-dose atropine for myopia in children: two years of experienceChildren in Tel Aviv have been treated with nightly atropine drops, significantly slowing the progression of myopia.
Applying micropulse transscleral cyclophotocoagulation for early-stage glaucoma Micropulse transscleral cyclophotocoagulation utilises a different delivery modality than its predecessor, continuous-wave laser cycloablation, to produce a biological reaction without the lethal effects caused by thermal buildup.
Yet another new revolution in ocular surface imagingDuring the past two decades, an incredible number of imaging technologies have been developed for eye diseases, both for diagnosis and follow-up.
Helping the underprivileged to seeRoughly 300 million people are visually impaired—38 million of whom are blind and most of whom live in so-called developing countries. However, there are many institutions with specific campaigns aimed at eliminating preventable blindness.
