  • 05/01/2014 - 10:37 GOOD PREDICTABILITY Cataract and Refractive, 2014, May The precision afforded by the FEMTO LDV Z6 power plus femtosecond laser in the creation of clear corneal incisions for cataract surgery and astigmatism correction can translate into more predictable visual outcomes than is achieved with standard cataract surgery, said Bojan Pajic MD, PhD, FEBO, Reinach AG, Switzerland.
  • 05/01/2014 - 09:57 ACCOMMODATION Cataract and Refractive, 2014, May Surgical restoration of accommodation in elderly patients has already been successfully achieved in a few isolated cases, but a lot more research needs to be done before the technique can be successfully extended to the majority of presbyopic or older patients, according to Adrian Glasser PhD.
  • 04/01/2014 - 12:27 MULTIFOCAL LENS Cataract and Refractive, 2014, April An aspheric treatment for the light adjustable lens (LALR, Calhoun Vision) following the first refractive adjustment can improve uncorrected near and intermediate vision without sacrificing uncorrected distance visual acuity
  • 04/01/2014 - 12:23 LOWERING CME Cataract and Refractive, 2014, April When it comes to prevention of pain and inflammation after cataract surgery, brandname products are preferred over their generics; it is better to use an NSAID in allcomers than in just high-risk patients
  • 04/01/2014 - 12:18 IRIS DEFECTS Cataract and Refractive, 2014, April Cataract surgery in eyes with iris defects can be challenging, but careful preparation as well as recent advances in surgical instruments and iris implants mean outcomes are significantly improving for these patients
  • 04/01/2014 - 12:12 IOL TECHNOLOGY Cataract and Refractive, 2014, April A new accommodating fluid-filled IOL has shown considerable promise in reducing the capsular bag opacification that frequently occurs after cataract surgery
  • 04/01/2014 - 12:11 IOL FORMULAS Cataract and Refractive, 2014, April A new formula for calculating IOL power may offer greater precision for biometric calculations by incorporating the demographic specifics of individual patients based on race and gender.
  • 04/01/2014 - 12:10 IMPROVING OUTCOMES Cataract and Refractive, 2014, April Intraoperative aberrometry-assisted IOL power selection using streaming refractive data (ORA System with VerifEye, WaveTec Vision) provides a means for achieving improved refractive outcomes in cataract surgery
  • 04/01/2014 - 12:09 HYPEROPIC PATIENTS Cataract and Refractive, 2014, April Highly precise biometry and the correct IOL calculation formulas are essential ingredients to achieving good visual outcomes in hyperopic cataract patients
  • 04/01/2014 - 11:56 CORRECTION SCREENING Cataract and Refractive, 2014, April Adding tear osmolarity testing to the routine dry eye screening protocol will allow refractive surgeons to minimise dry eyeassociated problems following refractive laser surgery, Richard Corkin MD told a session of the XXXI ESCRS Congress in Amsterdam.
