RLE choice factors in benefits, risks, alternativesRemoval of the crystalline lens was developed as a procedure to treat the media opacity, but advances in surgical techniques and in pseudophakic IOL technology have increased the functional use of lens-based refractive surgery, said William F. Wiley, MD.
New therapies for uveal melanoma target radiation toxicity, metastatic riskOngoing research for the treatment of uveal melanoma is providing hope that the future may bring new approaches for improving the safety of local therapy–along with modalities that will increase survival by reducing metastatic risk.
Haze after PRK, LASIK tied to faulty epithelial regrowth
Haze after PRK, LASIK tied to faulty epithelial regrowthPoor regeneration of the epithelial basement accounts for most 'late haze' associated with PRK, LASIK, infections, or corneal transplants. Proper excimer laser maintenance may reduce irregularities.
Intraoperative aberrometry can help improve refractive resultsIntraoperative aberrometry aphakic and pseudophakic readings can be comparable with careful control of surgical variables. Both readings can be useful to predict postoperative manifest refraction.
Compounded topical corticosteroid-antibiotic combinations bring postLASIK benefitsPositive outcomes were achieved in a clinical evaluation of proprietary compounded topical corticosteroid-antibiotic combination products for treatment after LASIK.
