refractive outcomes

Adopting a multidiagnostic method for characterising the anterior segmentA multidiagnostic device is able to provide consistent measurements of refraction and ocular aberrations in healthy eyes. The consistency of refractive measurements is not dependent on the magnitude of the refractive error, with the same precision ability for moderate to high myopia and for hyperopia.
Topography disparity effectively detects subclinical keratoconusTopography disparity can even provide a useful parameter for diagnosing the subclinical form of the disease, said David P. Piñero, PhD, and colleagues from the Medimar International Hospital, Alicante, Spain.
Drug therapies improving refractive outcomesLines continue to blur as to what constitutes refractive surgery, and likely will continue to blur well into the future. Multiple compounds—phenylephrine and ketorolac 1%/0.3%, (Omidria, Omeros) and the “Dropless” line (Tri-Moxi/Tri-moxi-Vanc, Imprimis Pharmaceuticals)—are designed for use in cataract surgery, but their goal is to improve refractive outcomes. 2015 was the year they started to get some serious attention.
Intraoperative aberrometer evolves with new standard for accuracyNew, highly accurate aberrometer technology is now available for the intraoperative confirmation of spherical, toric, and multifocal IOL power.
IOL power calculation for keratoconus: One-size strategy does not fit allAnalyses of predicted refractive outcomes using different IOL calculation formulas suggest possible strategies for increasing predictability in eyes with mild or moderate keratoconus.
