  • 04/01/2014 - 11:36 ACRYLIC MATERIAL Cataract and Refractive, 2014, April The iPure IOL (Physiol), which is composed of a new hydrophobic acrylic IOL material designed to be less prone to glistening, appears to provide an optical performance and intracapsular stability similar to lenses composed of an older hydrophobic material.
  • 03/03/2014 - 12:12 WAVEFRONT LASIK Cataract and Refractive, Mar, 2014 Wavefront-guided LASIK using the iDesign (Abbott Medical Optics Inc.) System can produce highly predictable refractive outcomes in eyes with myopia and myopic astigmatism, with no loss of corrected visual acuity and no loss in quality of vision, said Sarah Moussa MD, University Eye Clinic, Paracelsus Medical University, Salzburg, Austria.
  • 03/03/2014 - 12:05 PSEUDOPHAKIC MONOVISION Cataract and Refractive, Mar, 2014 Monovision with monofocal IOLs offers a viable modality for presbyopia correction in pseudophakic patients. However, what constitutes the desired refractions for pseudophakic monovision is a matter of controversy.
  • 03/03/2014 - 12:04 PRESBYOPIC CATARACT Cataract and Refractive, Mar, 2014 There is no “one-size-fits-all” solution for every presbyopic cataract or refractive lens exchange patient, and surgeons need to take due account of criteria such as lifestyle, occupation and expectations in guiding their choice of treatment for these patients, according to Hiroko Bissen- Miyajima MD, PhD.
  • 03/03/2014 - 11:50 KERATOCONUS AND LASER Cataract and Refractive, Mar, 2014 A novel treatment paradigm that combines corneal parameters with refractive measurements can be used to deliver safe and effective excimer laser treatments in patients with mild or forme fruste keratoconus, according to Noel Alpins FRANZCO, FRCOphth, FACS.
  • 03/03/2014 - 11:21 CME MANAGEMENT Cataract and Refractive, Mar, 2014 The ESCS-funded PREvention of Macular EDema after cataract surgery (PREMED) study should help to provide evidence-based recommendations for clinical guidelines to prevent the occurrence of cystoid macular oedema (CME) after cataract surgery in patients with and without diabetes mellitus (DM).
  • 03/03/2014 - 11:15 CATARACT SURGERY SAFETY Cataract and Refractive, Mar, 2014 The risk of posterior capsule (PC) rupture during irrigation and aspiration (I/A) is decreased with the use of a silicone tip instrument, a new analysis indicates.
  • 03/03/2014 - 11:05 AVOID AMETROPIA Cataract and Refractive, Mar, 2014 Surgeons can employ a number of surgical techniques to avoid astigmatism post-keratoplasty, with the use of femtosecond laser having many benefits in particular, the XXXVII UKISCRS Congress in Manchester heard.
  • 03/03/2014 - 10:58 ANAESTHESIA Cataract and Refractive, Mar, 2014 Results of a prospective comparative study evaluating macular thickness changes after uneventful cataract surgery indicate that further study is warranted to establish the safety of intracameral lidocaine for surgical anaesthesia.
  • 03/03/2014 - 10:54 ACCOMMODATION Cataract and Refractive, Mar, 2014 Observed changes in wavefront aberrations between near, intermediate and far vision in patients implanted with the WIOL-CF accommodative IOL (Medicem, Czech Republic) offer objective evidence of accommodation and insight about its mechanisms
