  • 11/04/2013 - 17:31 ENDOTHELIAL KERATOPLASTY Cornea, 2013, Nov Researchers are working hard to understand the complex interaction of factors behind the high graft detachment and re-bubbling rates associated with Descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK)
  • 10/03/2013 - 18:01 FUNGAL KERATITIS Cornea, 2013, Oct Fungal keratitis continues to be a major cause of corneal blindness in some areas of the world, and yet treatment of these sight-threatening infections has not received the research attention it deserves.
  • 10/01/2013 - 22:30 EFFECTIVE TOOL Cornea, 2013, Oct, Headlines Fourier domain OCT (FD-OCT) is an effective tool for obtaining corneal tomography with pachymetry even in highly pathologic corneas with thick fibrovascular panni, according to a study presented at the 2013 Congress of the Society of European Ophthalmology (SOE).
  • 10/01/2013 - 22:28 DUA'S LAYER Cornea, 2013, Oct Recognition of the previously unrecognised corneal layer situated in the deep stroma just anterior of Descemet’s membrane eponymous, now known as Dua’s layer, will have considerable effect on posterior corneal surgery, and contributes to the understanding of lamellar corneal surgery, especially deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty and posterior corneal pathology, said its discoverer Harminder S Dua MD, PhD.
  • 10/01/2013 - 22:26 DRY EYE DIAGNOSIS Cornea, 2013, Oct Speaking during the first Cornea Day of the 26th Asia-Pacific Association of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons Annual Meeting, Peter Zloty MD, provided some perspective on current techniques and technology for identifying dry eye in clinical practice.
  • 10/01/2013 - 22:23 CORNEAL REPAIR Cornea, 2013, Oct The focus of corneal perforation management should be on prevention, but there are multiple surgical options available for intervention should perforation occur, said Christopher Rapuano MD.
  • 10/01/2013 - 22:20 CORNEAL POCKETS Cornea, 2013, Oct Intracorneal pockets created with femtosecond lasers have a wide variety of potential uses, said Ioannis G Pallikaris MD PhD, University of Crete, Heraklion, Greece.
  • 09/02/2013 - 15:57 AFTER DSEK Cornea, 2013, Sept, Headlines Descemet’s-stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK) has several advantages compared with penetrating keratoplasty (PK) in eyes requiring corneal transplantation. However, there are limited data on the long-term health of the partial thickness transplant.
  • 07/16/2013 - 11:56 PHACO SAFE AFTER DMEK Cornea, 2013, Aug, Headlines Performing Descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) without removal of the natural lens will produce a better visual outcome than will a combination procedure, with no additional risk to the graft, said Jack Parker MD, at the 17th ESCRS Winter Meeting.
  • 05/01/2013 - 15:07 Expanding Therapeutic Horizons 2011, Cornea, Sept High dynamic range aberrometry makes it possible for surgeons to capture wavefronts and create treatment plans for highly aberrated eyes
