  • 12/10/2013 - 13:38 IFS CATARACT INCISIONS Cataract and Refractive, 2013, Dec The femtosecond laser can be used to create precise clear corneal incisions for cataract surgery using a proprietary software algorithm, Shamik Bafna MD, of the Cleveland Eye Clinic, Ohio, US, told the 2013 American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery annual symposium.
  • 12/10/2013 - 13:37 HANDHELD SD-OCT Cataract and Refractive, 2013, Dec Experience using a handheld high-resolution spectral domain OCT (SD-OCT) platform (Envisu, Bioptigen) for intraoperative imaging indicates it has a range of applications that should make it a helpful tool in clinical research and daily practice, reported Soumya Nanaiah MS, at the 26th Asia-Pacific Association of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons Annual Meeting.
  • 12/10/2013 - 13:34 FS-SURGERY Cataract and Refractive, 2013, Dec All-femtosecond laser refractive surgery produces good visual outcomes with greater stability and fewer side effects than conventional LASIK, according to a series of studies presented at the annual meeting of American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery. Known as ReLEx SMILE, for small-incision lenticule extraction, the procedure uses a Carl Zeiss Meditec VisuMax femtosecond laser to cut a refractive lenticule in stromal tissues along with a 3.0mm to 4.0mm incision through the corneal epithelium and Bowman’s membrane.
  • 12/10/2013 - 13:25 Endophthalmitis Cataract and Refractive, 2013, Dec, Headlines Speaking at the 26th Asia-Pacific Association of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons Annual Meeting, Dr Shih reported that between November 1, 2009, and December 31, 2012, a total of 11,537 cataract surgeries were performed by 31 surgeons at the surgical centre.
  • 12/10/2013 - 13:14 EMANUEL ROSEN Cataract and Refractive, 2013, Dec Dr Emanuel Rosen FRCS, FRCOphth, was the joint recipient of the inaugural UKISCRS Lifetime Achievement Awards at the XXXVI UKISCRS Congress in Manchester, and was praised for his innovative and visionary career, which included setting up the specialist cataract treatment centre in Manchester and a prestigious record in ophthalmology photography and academia.
  • 11/04/2013 - 17:26 IOL OUTCOMES Cataract and Refractive, 2013, Nov Surgeons using the monofocal and toric versions of the single-piece, aspheric hydrophobic acrylic enVista IOL (Bausch + Lomb) give the implant good early reviews with high ratings for patient outcomes.
  • 11/04/2013 - 17:24 Ocular Bandages Cataract and Refractive, 2013, Nov The opportunity to improve patient comfort together with the potential to reduce the risk of postoperative endophthalmitis by improving incision integrity provides a rationale for routinely sealing clear corneal incisions with a hydrogel ocular bandage after cataract surgery, said Matteo Piovella MD, at the 26th Asia-Pacific Association of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons Annual Meeting.
  • 11/04/2013 - 17:05 CME AETIOLOGY Cataract and Refractive, 2013, Nov Faster, less traumatic microincision cataract surgery techniques and sophisticated IOL designs have done much to reduce the incidence of cystoid macular oedema (CME) in recent years, but the specific aetiology of the disease remains elusive and the condition may occur even after uncomplicated surgery in low-risk eyes, according to a French researcher.
  • 10/06/2013 - 09:57 STRABISMUS STUDY Cataract and Refractive, 2013, Oct Refractive surgery is safe and effective in patients with strabismus over the longer term, suggests new data presented at the 2013 Irish College of Ophthalmologists Annual Conference in Killarney, Ireland.
  • 10/06/2013 - 09:50 PRK TREATMENT Cataract and Refractive, 2013, Oct Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) in eyes with suspected keratoconus appears to be safe and effective in carefully selected patients, according to a long-term study presented at the French Implant and Refractive Surgery Association (SAFIR) annual meeting.
