System offers advanced capabilities in OCT, OCTAThe recent FDA clearance of a swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT) and OCT angiography (OCTA) platform (PLEX Elite 9000, Carl Zeiss Meditec) for posterior ocular structures enables fast, dense, wide, and deep imaging of the retina, choroid, and their associated microvasculature, said Philip J. Rosenfeld, MD, PhD.
Integrating computer-assisted toric IOL implantation
Integrating computer-assisted toric IOL implantationSince making the switch to a markerless toric alignment system, Bryan S. Lee, MD, JD, explains how the technology has eliminated ink marking from his surgical regimen.
Toric trifocal IOL brings expanded range of functional vision to larger patient population
Toric trifocal IOL brings expanded range of functional vision to larger patient populationTrifocal IOLs can provide good uncorrected vision at near, intermediate, and far. Outcomes in a series of 30 patients show that a toric version of a trifocal IOL (AT Lisa tri 939MP, Carl Zeiss Meditec) delivers those benefits for patients with > 1 D of corneal astigmatism.
Computer assisted cataract surgery with toric intraocular lens implantation
Precision medicine: Tracking glaucoma progressionSince glaucoma progresses faster in some patients than others, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and visual field progression analysis can be more useful than IOP in guiding treatment decisions.
Managing unilateral aphakia with refractive lenticule implantationRefractive lenticule implantation is providing good results as a technique for managing unilateral aphakia.
Signal strength important factor when analyzing OCT scansOptical coherence tomography scans can be useful to follow glaucoma, but clinicians should be aware of scan quality.
Zeiss debuts new generation of high-resolution fundus camerasTwo new non-mydriatic cameras from Carl Zeiss Meditec use a high-resolution optical chain, delivering enhanced retinal details for more effective detection and management of eye diseases.
Angiography debuts as latest upgrade to high-definition OCT platformOCT angiography (AngioPlex OCT Angiography) is now available as an upgrade to the CIRRUS 5000 HD-OCT platform (Carl Zeiss Meditec). The technology allows visualization of the blood flow and microvasculature in the retina, choriocapillaris, and choroid with the ease of noninvasive imaging.
Functional imaging of ocular circulation under developmentFunctional optical coherence tomography characterizing global and local circulation in the retina and optic nerve head shows promise for improving the diagnostic and prognostic evaluation of glaucoma.
