Fibrin glue may cause TASS
Fibrin glue might be a potential cause of toxic anterior segment syndrome (TASS).
PTK provides excellent outcomes in astigmatism, corneal opacity
Phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) provides excellent visual outcomes in patients with irregular astigmatism and corneal opacity.
Glaucoma imaging takes its place in clinical practice
Use of imaging in clinical practice offers clinicians a number of advantages for following patients with glaucoma, perhaps most importantly the ability sometimes to detect damage before it is apparent on fundus photographs, objective rates of glaucoma progression, and the ability to predict the patients who are at high risk of functional impairment. Robert N. Weinreb, MD, talked about how imaging and clinical practice are a good fit.
Myopia with astigmatism treated with high-speed excimer laser
Myopia with astigmatism can be treated by performing myopic LASIK and LASEK using a high-speed excimer laser (Schwind Amaris 750S).
Optic neuritis treatments vary greatly for NMO and MS
Optic neuritis in juvenile neuromyelitis optica (NMO) Optic neuritis treatments vary greatly for NMO and MS
Bevacizumab monotherapy shows potential for some patients with ROP
Bevacizumab (Avastin, Genentech) monotherapy for zone I retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) might have potential for treating pre-term infants who are in phase II of the pathogenesis of ROP.
Intermittent diplopia a diagnostic challenge
Intermittent diplopia often is not evident during presentation, which makes its diagnosis problematic.
Approach yields stability, predictability
A minimally invasive technique for the correction of refractive errors has good refractive predictability, is safe and effective, and has excellent stability up to 1 year postoperatively.
Survival rates remain unchanged
The incidence of uveal melanoma in the United States has not changed substantially from 1973 to 2008.
Lens provides good visual acuity
A new foldable hydrophobic acrylic one-piece IOL provided good visual acuity to patients in a small pilot study with a short follow-up period.
