A new paradigm of aqueous outflow positing that it is a dynamic, pump-like process regulated through pulsatile mechanisms provides a conceptual framework unifying structure and function throughout the entire trabecular meshwork in both health and disease.
Intraoperative application of a proprietary in situ gel-forming hydrogel to the sutured conjunctival-limbal incision is safe and shows promise as an effective "bandage" for preventing early postoperative wound leaks in eyes undergoing fornix-based trabeculectomy surgery.
Findings from various patient surveys of satisfaction with medical care show that many of the commonly cited complaints can be mitigated by appropriate patient education.
Results of a preclinical pilot study demonstrate ocular iontophoresis accelerates transfer of topically applied riboflavin into the cornea.
Analyses of data from baseline structural imaging studies performed in two large prospective, observational glaucoma cohort trials suggest inter-eye asymmetry in optic disc topography parameters and average retinal nerve fiber layer thickness may provide an additional tool to identify eyes with early signs of glaucoma.
Rayner Intraocular Lenses Ltd. Received approval from the FDA in December 2011 to market the C-flex Aspheric 970C IOL in the United States.
Femtosecond laser-assisted procedures continue to be a focus of attention in cataract surgery as manufacturers and surgeons aim to elevate efficacy and safety outcomes to a higher level.
Results of a comparative study investigating capsulotomy features and ease of cataract extraction demonstrate clear benefits for using a femtosecond laser to create the capsular opening and fragment the nucleus.
Findings from a prospective study demonstrate that capsulotomy creation using a proprietary femtosecond laser system improves the predictability of effective lens position to deliver increased refractive accuracy and better visual acuity outcomes.
