Advancing diagnostics and detection of neovascular age-related macular degeneration

Early detection and treatment is essential to preserve vision in patients with age-related macular degeneration. A new device, the ForeseeHome®, uses preferential hyperacuity perimetry for early detection of choroidal neovascularisation before symptoms develop.

Latest concepts in steroid therapy for diabetic macular oedema

Steroids are an important second-line treatment for the treatment of diabetic macular oedema. While side effects remain a concern, modern formulations of intravitreal steroid allow the treatment to be tailored to the individual patient.

Real-world strategies for wet AMD

In many clinical areas, early consultant-led intervention has been shown to improve clinical and patient-reported outcomes and to reduce overall treatment costs. This paper reconfirms this finding in the treatment of wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD) and presents data from a publicly funded NHS fast-track (FT) centre in north-west England that aims to see and treat patients within 48 hours of referral.

Femtosecond lasers and phacoemulsification go head to head in French trial

With its higher costs, FLACS failed to provide an additional benefit over phacoemulsification for patients or in healthcare settings, despite its advanced capabilities.

Are extended-depth-of-focus IOLs hitting the visual sweet spot?

Current IOL designs offer a variety of optical options for the correction of presbyopia. Regardless of the principal of correction, compromise is required. However, a new class of IOLs, currently referred to as extended-depth-of-focus IOLs (EDOF-IOLs), seems to be generating very satisfied patients.

Experience with a single-use, preassembled silicone I/A tip system

An I/A tip system comprises a preassembled, single-use silicone I/A tip, which has advantages over other commercially available products. It helps to reduce capsular rupture during cataract surgery and also eliminates tricky tip assembly and cleaning.

Why you need to beware of potential mimickers of paediatric glaucoma

Although the diagnosis of primary congenital or early developmental glaucoma is often straightforward, similar phenotypic features can occur in other paediatric conditions, which are consequently sometimes mistaken for early childhood glaucoma. Ophthalmologists who care for children with glaucoma must keep such potential mimics in mind.

How to manage cataracts with ocular surface disease

Ocular surface disease, including dry eye disease, is common in patients undergoing cataract surgery. It must be treated in order to optimise the ocular surface prior to surgery, and close follow-up in the postoperative period is important.

Viscosplit and crack in mini-coaxial small-incision cataract surgery

Cataract surgery assisted by viscosplit and crack with a new phaco tip gives good results compared with standard phacoemulsification, either bimanual or one-handed.

Wavefront-guided vs wavefront-optimized LASIK in hyperopes: is there a winner?

In this article, the authors discuss how WF?guided and WF-optimized LASIK performed on hyperopic patients can provide similar results in terms of safety, contrast sensitivity and refractive error.

Improved optical quality with SMILE

In SMILE the anterior-most stromal lamellae remain intact postoperatively. Here, the author discusses the biomechanical advantages of preserving the stronger anterior stroma and the resulting effects on spherical aberration control and optical quality.

Validating long-term toric IOL performance

Five years of experience with the Rayner T-flex aspheric IOL show it to be a safe, highly effective long-term method of correcting the widest possible range of sphere and cylinder errors in pseudophakic patients with pre-existing corneal astigmatism.

2023: What ophthalmologists in Europe anticipate for the year ahead

Members of the Ophthalmology Times Europe® Editorial Advisory Board were asked to predict developments in their ophthalmic specialties and interests for 2023. A focus is our ageing population, while efficiency and productivity are also on their minds. The board members agree that one of the major challenges in the year to come will be the large number of patients awaiting diagnosis and treatment, which is only going to increase with the rising average life expectancy worldwide.
