  • 03/03/2014 - 10:50 A STEP FORWARD Cataract and Refractive, Mar, 2014 A dual topical medication regimen including an NSAID started preoperatively and continued after surgery with a corticosteroid is better than using the corticosteroid alone suggest the results of a recent randomised, double-masked, placebo-controlled trial.
  • 01/24/2014 - 15:19 ORTHOKERATOLOGY Cataract and Refractive, Feb, 2014 Recent studies suggest that orthokeratology, using night-wear rigid contact lenses to reshape the cornea, is effective for correcting low to moderate myopia, and may slow progression by reducing axial length growth by about 45 per cent over three years, Helen Swarbrick PhD told the XXXI Congress of the ESCRS in Amsterdam.
  • 01/24/2014 - 15:10 MULTIFOCAL IOLS Cataract and Refractive, Feb, 2014 The AT LISA 809M multifocal lens provides good near and distance vision with few untoward effects in the longer term, according to a series of reports at the Annual Congress of the ESCRS in Amsterdam. Maria Sysoeva MD, presenting for Dimitrii Dementiev MD, Centro di Microchirurgia Oculare, Milan, Italy, discussed the long-term results of the AT LISA 809M (CZ Meditec) multifocal lens.
  • 01/24/2014 - 14:50 IOL ADVANCES Cataract and Refractive, Feb, 2014 A novel one-piece hydrophobic acrylic IOL featuring an aspheric design customised for Japanese eyes (W-60; Eternity Natural Uni, Santen) is safe and provides excellent visual and refractive outcomes after cataract surgery, reported ophthalmologists from Toho University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan, at the 26th Asia-Pacific Association of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons Annual Meeting in Singapore.
  • 01/24/2014 - 14:33 FEMTOCAT ECONOMICS Cataract and Refractive, Feb, 2014 While femtosecond laser cataract surgery is currently very expensive it will become more cost-effective as it becomes more established and its future looks bright, according to Paul Rosen FRCS, FRCOphth, consultant ophthalmic surgeon, Oxford Eye Hospital, UK.
  • 01/24/2014 - 14:27 FEMTO CATARACT Cataract and Refractive, Feb, 2014 There are a number of compelling reasons for making the switch from traditional phaco to femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery including faster visual rehabilitation, reduced complications and reduced exclusion criteria for cataract surgery, according to Burkhard Dick MD.
  • 01/24/2014 - 14:03 FEMTO CATARACT FOR ALL Cataract and Refractive, Feb, 2014 In 2010 and 2011, early clinical reports convinced Shachar Tauber MD that femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery would improve outcomes and reduce complications. But he also believed the technology should be available to all patients – not just those who can pay extra.
  • 12/10/2013 - 13:54 THE ABLATED CORNEA Cataract and Refractive, 2013, Dec A growing understanding of the anatomical and optical changes induced by corneal ablation is leading to treatment refinements that may further improve visual outcomes in refractive ablation procedures and postablation implantation of the intraocular lens (IOL), Douglas D Koch MD told the XXXI Congress of the ESCRS in the Binkhorst Medal Lecture 2013.
  • 12/10/2013 - 13:52 Posterior Capsule Tear Cataract and Refractive, 2013, Dec Tear of the posterior capsule during cataract surgery opens the door to a host of further complications, including vitreous loss, retained lens material, cystoid macular oedema, retinal detachment and endophthalmitis.
  • 12/10/2013 - 13:51 POSTERIOR CAPSULE OPACIFICATION Cataract and Refractive, 2013, Dec Research to identify factors influencing posterior capsular opacification (PCO) has led to surgical techniques and IOL designs that have limited the development of this complication after cataract surgery.
