Maintenance is an important determinant for the efficacy of any intervention

Achieving alignment of strabismus can be difficult in children with syndromic craniosynostosis as the causes are multifactorial.
Children are particularly sensitive to systemic side effects of topical glaucoma medications for a variety of reasons. Increased caution is necessary when using these agents.
A study provides new insight on the risk of early ocular surface-related complications among patients undergoing CXL for keratoconus.
The cornea maintains a better prolate shape after myopic PRK using a wavefront-optimized versus a wavefront-guided ablation profile.
Gonioscopy remains the gold standard technique for assessing the anterior chamber angle, but ultrasound biomicroscopy and anterior segment optical coherence tomography can be useful adjuncts for glaucoma patient care.
Data from 6 months of follow-up in a randomized, contralateral eye comparison study demonstrate LASIK performed using a proprietary "optimized prolate ablation" algorithm provides superior results compared with a conventional ablation technique.
Procedure room humidity appears to have a small effect on best-corrected visual acuity outcomes after corneal laser refractive surgery, but variations in humidity or temperature do not appear to affect uncorrected visual acuity outcomes, the incidence of diffuse lamellar keratitis after LASIK, or need for enhancement after myopic LASIK or LASEK.
Strict inclusion criteria apply for using the femtosecond laser flapless intrastromal procedure to treat presbyopia.
Results from a small study indicate the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of improving near vision in patients with previous LASIK by implanting a small-aperture corneal inlay into a femtosecond laser-created corneal pocket.
