Sustained-release corticosteroid implant improves, slows progression of diabetic retinopathy
Sustained intraocular delivery of fluocinolone acetonide (FAc) using the FAc 0.19 mg intravitreal implant (Iluvien, Alimera Sciences) improves and slows progression of diabetic retinopathy (DR), according to findings of post-hoc analyses of data from the pivotal Fluocinolone Acetonide for Diabetic Macular Edema (FAME) trials.
Pulse technology boosts all-laser PRK for one-step, no-touch ablation
Pulse technology boosts all-laser PRK for one-step, no-touch ablation
A transepithelial PRK (TransPRK) procedure (SmartSurface, Schwind eye-tech-solutions) provides the benefits of one-step, no-touch surface ablation plus rapid visual recovery, said Diego de Ortueta, MD.
Handheld polarizing filter augments corneal imaging with simple approach
Use of a handheld circular polarizing filter to intercept afferent and efferent light from a slit lamp or operating microscope highlights corneal structures that are otherwise invisible or barely seen.
Homeopathy for endometriosis pain?
Potentized estrogen was found to be effective in a recent study.
Infants also at risk from mothers' endometriosis
A large study reaffirms that mothers with endometriosis and their babies face more complications than those without the condition.
New insights on 'pachychoroid spectrum'
Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) is the diagnosis that usually comes to mind when retinal specialists see an eye with choroidal thickening. New insights on choroidal pathology obtained using advanced imaging techniques, however, have led to the description of a broader group of pachychoroid diseases, said K. Bailey Freund, MD, at the inaugural Retina World Congress.
Flanged fixation secures IOL haptics within the sclera
Flanged IOL fixation is a simple, minimally invasive, and effective technique for transconjunctival intrascleral fixation of a three-piece IOL, said Shin Yamane, MD, PhD, at the inaugural Retina World Congress.
Strategies for macular hole recurrence after small-gauge vitrectomy
Findings from a retrospective review provide insights about the outcomes of surgery for recurrent macular holes in the era of small-gauge vitrectomy and possible strategies for reducing their occurrence, said Tarek S. Hassan, MD, at the inaugural Retina World Congress.
Research limited on role of combination therapy for CRVO-related ME
Combination therapy may be a reasonable approach to manage eyes that are not responding to intravitreal monotherapy with an anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) agent or corticosteroid, said Lihteh Wu, MD, at the inaugural Retina World Congress.
