Presbyopia-correcting inlay aids near visionOctober 15th 2011
As results from the FDA IDE clinical trial are awaited, analyses of data from patients receiving earlier versions of an investigational presbyopia-correcting intracorneal inlay show that its efficacy for improving near vision remains stable for at least 3 years.
Computer-based visual cortex training beneficial after IOL surgeryOctober 15th 2011
Experience with a commercially available computer-based visual cortex training system indicates it is a useful option to consider for improving outcomes of patients with complaints about visual acuity and quality after premium IOL surgery.
Study assessing wellbeing in patients with presbyopic hyperopia finds high satisfactionOctober 15th 2011
Findings from a retrospective study assessing vision and well-being among patients with presbyopic hyperopia who underwent bilateral wavefront-guided LASIK or refractive lens exchange with bilateral multifocal IOL implantation show similarly high satisfaction for both groups.
In a retrospective chart review that compared three of the most current phacoemulsification technologies for their performance and outcomes during cataract surgery and day 1 after surgery, the Infiniti OZIL-IP outperformed the WhiteStar Signature Ellipsis-FX and the Stellaris System with respect to less phaco needle time, increased followability and stability, less chatter, and less change in corneal pachymetry after surgery that resulted in better day 1 visual outcomes.
Outcomes: Low-cylinder-power toric IOLOctober 15th 2011
Implantation of a toric IOL in eyes with low pre-existing cylinder has benefit for significantly reducing postoperative astigmatism, but surgeons should be mindful of the importance of minimizing surgically induced astigmatism when using a low-cylinder power toric IOL.
