The ophthalmic technology floodToday, a visit to the commercial exhibitions of major meetings is a real show, with companies’ booths offering amazing high-tech devices that promise to address the specific needs we have in our practices. Although such technology impresses us, we seldom receive information on the evidence-based data surrounding its effectiveness, its cost-benefit analysis and the potential for obsolescence.
Numbers transform dry eye treatment for symptomatic, asymptomatic patientsAdding objective point-of-care dry eye diagnostics to your practice has deep, measurable effects, including more accurate and consistent IOL power calculations.
Exploring safety, efficacy of high-intensity focused ultrasound in glaucomaHigh-intensity focused ultrasound cyclocoagulation is safe and effective in most refractory glaucomatous eyes. Complete success was achieved in 80% (24/30) of treated eyes that had undergone the maximum of three procedures.
Advancements and cutting-edge science abound at the XXXV Congress of ESCRSIt will soon be time for the FIL – Feira Internacional de Lisboa in Lisbon, Portugal to open its doors to the ophthalmic community for the 35th Congress of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS), taking place between the 7th and 11th October 2017.
Diagnosing and treating MacTel degenerative retinal diseaseIdiopathic macular telangiectasia (MacTel) is bilateral condition characterised by ectatic capillaries of the macula and atrophy of the neurosensory retina. Familiarity with the distinctive intraretinal cavitation on SD-OCT in type 2, the most common type, is key for correct diagnosis.
Questionnaires differ in strabismus quality-of-life measuresTwo questionnaires used to measure quality of life in people with strabismus overlap but differ in important areas, according to researchers.
Studying aqueous humour outflow with aqueous angiographyA pioneering dye-based technique that enables aqueous humour outflow to be studied has the potential to improve glaucoma angle-based procedures and surgery outcomes.
Performing cataract surgery with phaco in patients with previous implantationsThis case study presents the results and advantages of phacoemulsification, which Dr Dieter W Klass and his team applied after previous implantation of an iris-fixated phakic IOL (pIOL) (Artisan, Ophtec) for the correction of high myopia without explantation of the pIOL.
The future of cataract surgeryAs the most common procedure performed by the ophthalmic surgeon, in 2014, 4.3 million cataract operations took place in the European Union Member States. It is estimated that more than 23 million procedures will be performed worldwide in 2016.
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.
