Some patients are unhappy even with Snellen visual acuity of 20/20 or better. While it may sometimes be tempting to dismiss these patients as unreasonable or “crazy,” understanding what makes these patients dissatisfied even with good Snellen visual is important for their proper management, says Daniel H. Chang, MD.
Scleral suturing of a dislocated IOL and exchange of the original lens with an iris-claw IOL were comparable for achieving good visual outcomes with low complication rates.
Dexamethasone intraocular suspension 9% is similar to topical prednisolone acetate, giving physicians another choice when tackling IOP in patients.
A new class of IOL technology (EyeMax Mono) is tailored for patients with dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
