Fillers 101: Foundations for success
The foundations for success in using fillers during oculofacial surgery include understanding the characteristics of these products, which influences outcomes, and learning techniques to avoid and treat complications.
New and different therapies emerging through uveitis pipeline
Local therapy plays a significant role in the treatment of uveitis, either as monotherapy or in combination therapy. Alongside a number of pharmacotherapeutic agents, new products and technologies are in development that could expand clinicians’ options and improve outcomes.
Managing treatment options for atopic keratoconjunctivitis
Eye or eyelid involvement in atopic dermatitis is relatively uncommon. However, the frequency and severity of corneal complications may accompany atopic keratoconjunctivitis and lead to vision loss. In all but the mildest cases of AKC, treatment typically consists of corticosteroids; calcineurin inhibitors may be added in more severe cases.
Risk review supports safety of corneal crosslinking
Severe complications are rare (< 1%) after corneal crosslinking for progressive keratoconus. Some are preventable, some are manageable, but some may lead to a need for corneal transplantation
UCLA Stein Eye Institute marks 50th anniversary
Digging into the history of 1966 reveals a collection of highlights from popular culture—the advent of the mini-skirt, the first Star Trek television show—and events that made daily headlines: the escalation of the war in Vietnam, as well as a series of manned and unmanned missions to space.
Cataract, glaucoma surgery in uveitis patients present added challenges
Cataract surgery in patients with coexisting uveitis is more challenging than managing either condition alone.
Portable imaging system captures quality images
Portable imaging system captures quality images
New technology has been paired with the time-tested technique of direct ophthalmoscopy to create a portable, retinal imaging system (D-Eye, D-Eye S.r.l.) that utilizes a small optical device magnetically attached to a smartphone
Strategies guide efficiency in modern medical practice
Improving practice efficiency is more likely to be successful when undertaken with a long-term view as well as an understanding of trends in the healthcare environment.
Enhanced technology measures both anterior eye segment, axial length
By adding optical biometry to the anterior segment tomography features of the Pentacam HR, a new unit has the capabilities of two devices in one.
