Fluid-filled accommodating IOL maintains benefits after 2 yearsImplantation of a silicone oil-filled accommodating IOL (FluidVision, PowerVision) provides 3 to 4 D of accommodation along with excellent distance, intermediate, and near vision—all of which remain stable during follow-up to 2 years, said Louis D. Nichamin, MD.
Novel scleral suture fixation technique stabilizes rotated toric IOLTake-home message: A novel approach to scleral suture fixation of a rotated in-the-bag toric IOL stabilizes the implant at the desired axis and prevents rotation in both clockwise and counterclockwise directions.
Clinical Round Up: No glaucoma protection from primary IOL placement in children
Clinical Round Up: No glaucoma protection from primary IOL placement in childrenIn this month's Clinical Round Up, Sharon Freedman, MD, discusses results of the Infant Aphasia Treatment Study, and how it found there is no glaucoma protection from primary IOL placement in children. Additionally, Barbara Parolini, MD, discusses the new hope for better myopic traction maculopathy outcomes.
Real-world experience with the MFR2 IOLDr Thomassen shares his personal experiences with the MFR2 IOL, including reasons why the MFR2 is his lens of preference, clinical findings from a real-life setting and considerations for future use.
Planning tips and tools for IOL exchangeCareful preparation that includes planning ahead and going into surgery armed with the proper equipment and alternative strategies will facilitate easy and atraumatic explantation when performing IOL exchange, said Stephen S. Lane, MD.
Remembering ophthalmic pioneer Dr. Robert SinskeyGifted surgeon, innovator, teacher, humanitarian, and life changer. These are the words used to described Robert Sinskey, MD, by some of his closest ophthalmic colleagues.
Comparing PCO and glistenings in 2 hydrophobic IOLs: 3-year resultsIn this article, Dr Johannson presents intraindividual IOL comparison follow-up results. Although similar levels of PCO development were observed for both AcrySof and Tecnis one-piece IOLs, fewer glistenings appeared in the Tecnis material, 3 years after implantation.
Enhanced injector for hydrophobic acrylic IOL yields greater controlModifications to a reusable injector system have reduced resistance between the plunger tip and the IOL, creating a smoother delivery of the lens into the eye.
Bionic lens can restore high-quality visionAn optometrist in British Columbia has developed an IOL that his company’s website says “is capable of restoring quality vision at all distances, without glasses, contact lenses or corneal refractive procedures, and without the vision problems that have plagued current accommodative and multifocal [IOL] designs.”
Overcoming cataract surgery challenges with a corneal comorbidityDifferent corneal diseases present different challenges to achieving the desired refractive outcome after cataract surgery. Cornea specialist Dasa V. Gangadhar, MD, highlights measures to consider in various situations.
