CXL demands continuity of care
Crosslinking meets the previously unmet needs of progressive keratoconus patients and provides an opportunity to increase engagement with optometrists, explain John Berdahl, MD, and George O. Waring IV, MD.
Laser cataract surgery continues to transform capsulotomies
Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery will continue to lead the transition to a new era in ophthalmology with more precise, customizable, and reproducible capsulotomies.
Advanced diagnostic, surgical planning tool plays role in patient care
George O. Waring IV, MD, FACS, discusses how the ability to evaluate quality of vision by assessing forward light scatter of the dysfunctional lens, measure depth-of-focus, guide in centration, and functionally evaluate unstable tear film to diagnose dysfunctional tear syndrome have made an advanced diagnostic/surgical planning device invaluable in practice.
Replacement of dysfunctional lens may pose multiple benefits
Dysfunctional lens replacement may be a better option in certain cases for patients with dysfunctional lens syndrome who initially seek LASIK correction. With the availability of advanced diagnostic equipment, surgeons can now identify candidates and recommend this solution.
Device implantation: At the center of it all
Why surgeons need to understand how to center advanced surgical implants manually
Lens exchange aids vision quality
The term "dysfunctional lens syndrome" encompasses lenticular opacities that result in increased forward light scatter, decreased contrast sensitivity, progressive loss of accommodative amplitude, and increased spherical aberration.
Corneal inlay uses pinhole effect
An intracorneal inlay for the treatment of presbyopia uses the pinhole effect to increase depth of focus by selecting for the central light ray and minimizing refraction.
