Thinner preoperative pRNFL is associated with thinning of the temporal quadrant, according to a report.
Most only require 1 additional procedure — usually cataract surgery, the investigation shows.
The devices decrease refractive astigmatism postoperatively compared with preoperative corneal astigmatism.
Edmund Tsui, MD, social media editor for the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s journal Ophthalmology, guides readers through what’s trend-worthy in eye care.
Patients implanted with foldable iris-fixated phakic intraocular lenses may experience annual changes in refractive error, visual acuity, and axial length, making the devices a long-term, but not permanent solution.
Long-term systemic statin use may reduce glaucoma risk after vitreoretinal surgery, according to a report.
Compared with age-related cataract eyes, patients with diabetes have significantly higher concentrations of TGF-β1 and TGF-β2.
A patient’s age at the time of operation can influence whether they develop glaucomatous disease later in life.
The dual procedure also cut the need for medication to help manage glaucoma, a report shows.
Cataract surgery in patients with CMV anterior uveitis leads to significantly improved corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) in 73% of patients, a study says.
The device is not associated with increased rates of dysphotopsias, according to the report.
Cryopreserved amniotic membrane shows no benefit over bandage contact lens in optimizing the ocular surface before cataract removal, according to a study.
Research shows the devices’ effectiveness in patients with high myopia, astigmatism.
SS-OCT may be a better method of obtaining crystalline lens parameters than conventional means such as MRI, Scheimpflug imaging, or ultrasound biomicroscopy, a study suggests.
Study suggests sharp refractive control in 2-step phacoemulsification plus PRK, but similar outcomes and fewer risks with 1-step toric IOL implantation.
Investigators say the EDOF lens may be preferable for optimal uncorrected near visual acuity.
A family history of congenital cataract, thicker central corneas, smaller horizontal corneal diameters, and thinner lenses are all associated with more glaucoma-related adverse events, a study shows.
Foldable phakic intraocular lens produced refractive stability at 15 years, but study advises at least 3 mm anterior chamber depth to implant pIOL.
As a standalone or combined procedure, ABiC reduced intraocular pressure and medical drop dependence at 36 months, according to a report.
However, researchers note “clinically relevant differences” in glaucoma procedure success rates for patients with a history of the refractive procedure.
