presbyopia correction

12-month results with small-aperture IOL providing patients with an extended range of visionThe IC-8 IOL (AcuFocus) is one of the new class of extended-depth-of-focus (EDOF) IOLs that is definitively altering the landscape of cataract surgery in Europe and around the world. Whereas monofocal and multifocal lenses have one or two distinct focal points, an EDOF-IOL creates one elongated focal point, though each lens does so in a different way.
Managing presbyopia heading into the year 2020Patients don’t have to wait for 2020 to achieve 20/20 vision at near without spectacles or contact lenses. Rather, the advancements we have seen just in the past few years should be enough to help manage their expectations.
Managing presbyopia with surgeryCurrent methodologies for surgically addressing presbyopia and new technologies that are shaping the process.
Was 2015 the year of inlays, FLACS, or something else?While 2015 may not have been the year for ground-breaking introductions or trials in the field of refractive surgery, plenty of improvements have kept the procedure an evolving process, Ophthalmology Times editorial advisory board members said.
Presbyopia therapy: Comparison of corneal versus lens-based optionsThe authors assess the quantitative and qualitative aspects of vision following various lens- and corneal-based therapies for presbyopia. In many cases the KAMRA corneal inlay offers a long-term solution. It can easily be removed if the patient is not satisfied with the outcome.
Intracorneal inlays for the correction of presbyopia and low hyperopiaNew alloplastic materials are being used as intracorneal inlays to offer predictable and safe refractive surgical correction of presbyopia and low hyperopia. The major problem with such inlays is the wound-healing response following their insertion; however, they can easily be removed.
New correction option for presbyopes
New correction option for presbyopesAt present we are limited with our ability to treat presbyopes. Sure, we have progressives and multifocal contact lenses; however, from a surgical standpoint, monovision corneal refractive surgery is limited, and clear lens extraction is often extreme for emmetropes.
Corneal inlay for presbyopia shows promise without added visual problems in pseudophakesThe Raindrop Near Vision Inlay (Revision Optics) improves near-visual performance without added visual disturbance in pseudophakic patients.
Why the femto-cataract business model worksFor the Aker Kasten Eye Center, the surgical benefits of switching to femtosecond laser cataract surgery have surpassed any initial financial concerns.
CLE with latest generation of advanced multifocal implantsThe number of presbyopia correcting options has increased along with the size of the presbyopic market. Clear lens exchange (CLE) is becoming a popular option as a result of the latest generation of intraocular lenses that have been shown to offer spectacle independence to a high proportion of patients. In this article, Mr Chitkara presents the 1-year results of his small study evaluating CLE with implantation of the Diffractiva-aA lens.
