Analyzing corneal asphericity, OCT angiography, and balance control issues in glaucoma patients
Corneal asphericity, OCT angiography, and balance control issues in glaucoma patients are analyzed in this industry update roundup.
Comparing anti-VEGFs for DME
In a 1-year comparison of intravitreous aflibercept, bevacizumab and ranibizumab therapy for centre-involved DME, aflibercept was more effective at improving vision among patients who started treatment at lower levels of visual acuity.
Capsulotomy triggers prostaglandin release in FLACS
Anterior capsulotomy triggers an increase of prostaglandins in the aqueous humour immediately after FLACS, according to researchers from Ruhr University Eye Hospital, Bochum, Germany.
Lens opacity AREDS score predicts progression
Researchers using the AREDS lens grading scale have found that long-term clinically relevant outcomes can be predicted by 2-year changes in severity of lens opacities.
NICE gives aflibercept provisional green light for DME
NICE has released a draft decision recognizing the benefits of aflibercept solution for injection for the majority of patients with visual impairment caused by DME.
Venturi vacuum better than peristaltic during phaco
When performing phacoemulsification, using a venturi-based vacuum may result in reduced clearance time of lens material compared to a peristaltic-based vacuum, according to new research.
Laser-assisted capsulotomy results better than CCC
Femtosecond laser-assisted capsulotomy resulted in better circularity and more predictable size compared with standard manual continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis (CCC) in a prospective, randomized clinical study by researchers in Italy.
Fs-laser safe for capsulotomy creation
Anterior capsulotomies may be created safely and efficaciously using a femtosecond laser system (Catalys Precision Laser System, Abbott Medical Optics), according to a study published online in the Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery.
