IOL

Toric, presbyopia-correcting IOLs good options for glaucoma patientsSteven Vold, MD, reports that toric IOLs provide an accurate, safe, and convenient way to correct astigmatism and uncorrected distance vision for glaucoma patients, while patients wanting presbyopic correction have IOL options to fit a range of visual needs.
Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery: How far have we come?During the XXXV Congress of the ESCRS, an international panel of expert FLACS users gathered to share their research and insights, and to learn from the experiences of their colleagues.
New IOL, automated delivery system expected to transform market
Clinical findings supported by new OCTA technology
Clinical findings supported by new OCTA technologySince its FDA clearance, the significant potential of OCTA has been emphasized.
Steroid and NSAID combination prevents macular oedema after cataractsA combination of a topical corticosteroid and a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) is more effective than either one alone in reducing the risk of cystoid macular oedema (CME) after cataract surgery in nondiabetic patients, researchers say.
Scleral tunnel ‘glued’ fixation technique for slipped IOLs
Scleral tunnel ‘glued’ fixation technique for slipped IOLsScleral tunnel, “glued” fixation technique works better than alternative fixation techniques in cases where intraocular lenses (IOLs) cannot be placed in capsular bag or in the sulcus, according to Sumit Garg, MD.
Small-aperture IOL offers advantages over other presbyopia lenses
Small-aperture IOL offers advantages over other presbyopia lensesA new small-aperture intraocular lens (IOL) extends patients’ depth of focus as well as multifocal IOLs with fewer dysphotopsias, researchers say.
Managing residual astigmatism after toric IOL surgeryResidual astigmatism is not uncommon after toric IOL implantation. Depending on its cause and magnitude, lens reorientation may be a good solution.
Exploring wider role for premium IOL implantation in glaucoma patientsWhen it comes to recommending a premium IOL, a patient’s glaucoma is only one factor to consider. Just like any other patient planning cataract surgery, visual needs and preferences for/against glasses are also important factors.
Early results of trifocal IOL exhibit solid performanceResearchers conducted a 6-month study of patients implanted with the AcrySof IQ PanOptix presbyopia-correcting IOL to determine the binocular defocus curve of the lens. They concluded that these early results show good visual performance across the whole range of defocus. No unexpected adverse events were reported
