New advancements in IOL technology is exciting for presbyopia treatment

Catching up after ASCRS 2022, Ora's Caitlin Black, senior director and therapeutic area head of medical devices, talks about the next generation of ophthalmic device therapies and diagnostics, clinical trial updates and new innovations that are most exciting for presbyopia treatment.

Study: Accurate refractive predictions remain difficult in patients with keratoconus

Newer generation formulas generally outperformed older generation formulas, with SRK/T performing the best of older formulas, especially when using TK values.

New software program improves biometry measurements obtained by OLCR biometer

Lens thickness and anterior chamber duct values obtained by Lenstar can be improved by SpikeFinder to reduce errors in measurements.

Study: IOL calculation remains challenging in PKP eyes

May 04, 2022

The study assesses and compares the accuracy of IOL formulas using keratometry (K) and total keratometry (TK) values obtained by a swept-source OCT biometer (IOL Master 700) in eyes with previous PKP prior to cataract surgery.

CSF-1 Phase 2B clinical trials for presbyopia met primary and secondary endpoints

April 25, 2022

In a presentation at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery’s 2022 annual meeting, Marjan Farid, MD, ABO, and Preeya K. Gupta, MD, offered details of clinical trials for CSF-1 ophthalmic solution, a presbyopia eye drop candidate. Results showed that nearly half of the participants treated with CSF-1 achieved a 3-line or more increase in the distance-corrected near visual acuity an hour after drop instillation on day 15.
