Bladeless, custom FLACS technology: What's in a name?A small review recently found 28 different names for the procedure, and the chances are there are even more currently in use.
Reducing IOL prediction errorIntraoperative aberrometry enables better outcomes for demanding and challenging patients according to new study.
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.
Improving the precision and consistency of scleral implant surgerySince scleral implant surgery for presbyopia correction was first introduced, numerous enhancements have standardized and simplified the procedure. In this article, Dr Cummings discusses binocular visual improvement outcomes observed with a new generation implant system, and explains which patients may benefit from the procedue.
Achieving balanced visionHere, Dr Verdoorn presents his experiences with the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay, which he has found to be a successful option for presbyopic patients.
Real-time intraoperative aberrometry enables better surgical outcomesA new sequentially shifting wavefront device for intraoperative aberrometry provides continuous feedback on refraction during cataract surgery.
Capsulotomy triggers prostaglandin release in FLACSAnterior capsulotomy triggers an increase of prostaglandins in the aqueous humour immediately after FLACS, according to researchers from Ruhr University Eye Hospital, Bochum, Germany.
2014 brought improvements in refractive accuracy with technologic evolutionsTaking a look at the improvements made this past year in refractive accuracy through several new technologic evolutions.
Advances in refractive accuracy gain traction through technologic evolutionsA look at how crosslinking applications, topography-guided ablations, along with the introduction of the Symfony lens, dominated refractive surgery this past year.
Effects of astigmatism greater on multifocals than monofocals IOLsThe effect of astigmatism varies with different factors and can affect patient satisfaction with multifocal or monofocal IOLs.
