Cornea

Corneal astigmatism independent of patient age at surgeryOptimal planning for correction of pre-existing corneal astigmatism at the time of cataract surgery should take into account an age-related, against-the-rule (ATR) shift.
Using dry eye treatments for sick corneasDid you ever consider that those tools in your dry eye arsenal are also good for acutely sick eyes? I recently had a patient who drove this point home…even to my ophthalmology partner.
Optimizing cataract outcomes when keratoconus is present
Optimizing cataract outcomes when keratoconus is presentPatients with keratoconus pose unique challenges with IOL calculations.
How resistant biofilms affect keratitisWatch as Ben Wucher, researcher at University of Rochester Medical Center, summarizes his research titled, "Clinical keratitis isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa develop resistant biofilms."
Ultrasound device capable of precise imaging, biometry of eyeEarly results from a repeatability and reproducibility study of a precision ultrasound device indicate the anterior segment imaging device can provide unique measurements on the cornea and will have multiple applications in the future.
Keratoconus as refractive surgery: Thinking outside the ‘cone’
Keratoconus as refractive surgery: Thinking outside the ‘cone’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.
Selective two-photon collagen crosslinking: Why more is better
Selective two-photon collagen crosslinking: Why more is betterSelective two-photon collagen crosslinking has been shown to stiffen any three-dimensional region inside corneal tissue without damaging surrounding tissues.
Addressing challenges of Acanthamoeba keratitisAcanthamoeba keratitis is a vision-threatening disease most frequently seen in contact lens wearers. The disease mimics numerous diseases, and early recognition is needed to achieve optimal visual outcomes.
Gauging ganciclovir gel for herpes virus
Gauging ganciclovir gel for herpes virusGanciclovir gel is effective for herpes simplex epithelial keratitis, and emerging evidence shows it also can be used to treat other corneal disease.
Fungal infections after keratoplasty on upswingPost-keratoplasty fungal infections are becoming increasing more common, and the risk is significantly higher after DSEK compared with PK.
