White light is comprised of different wavelengths of visible light, ranging from red (700 nm) to violet (400 nm). As white light passes through an optical system, each of its component wavelengths bends independently.
Using dysfunctional lens syndrome stages, physicians can discuss a range of treatment options with patients, based on clinical findings and refractive error.
Ophthalmologists must be prepared to perform corneal refractive surgery enhancements after cataract surgery—and LASIK is often the optimal choice, according to Robert K. Maloney, MD.
America may face a public health crisis in coming years unless drastic changes are not made to the public perception of eye health, according to a report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM).
