In this first of a two-part series, Arun C. Gulani, MD, MS, explains how approaching keratoconus as a refractive surgery will change the way both ophthalmologists and patients will approach this condition to bring in a new era of not only relieving but also enhancing the lifestyle of this patient population. In Part 2, Dr. Gulani will share strategies and cases of patients with keratoconus with different case scenarios in action.
Cataract surgery in eyes with pseudoexfoliation syndrome is associated with increased intraoperative and postoperative risks. Strategies for improving outcomes include attention to IOL selection, and one surgeon describes why he is using a particular IOL.
A hot topic in cataract surgery is alternative ways to administer perioperative medications with the goal of lowering the incidence of cystoid macular edema (CME). One way to achieve that goal would be the combination of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and transzonular steroids.
In the modern landscape of ophthalmology, there is an abundance of intraocular lens (IOL) calculation formulae. This often leads to a clinical dilemma when it comes to choosing the most appropriate formula.
