YAG-shots in IOLs: Safe or dangerous?

Poorly focused YAG shots lead irrevocably to a permanent defect in the IOL material and thus to possible effects on the quality of vision with straylight or glare. In a recent study, the differing amounts of damage that Nd:YAG causes in a range of hydrophilic and hydrophobic acrylic lens materials was assessed.

Pilot project aims to overcome inequalities in glaucoma diagnoses

Many low- and middle-income countries lack resources for managing eye health. A pilot project aims to reduce the number of people going blind from untreated glaucoma by raising awareness and increasing engagement with screening and follow-up.

Maintaining quality and safety in retina clinics during a pandemic

To maintain treatment quality and patient and staff safety in the SARS-CoV-2 era, it is important to minimise clinic visits and maximise use of imaging modalities. In addition, extending treatment intervals with longer-acting agents is key to maximising safety and patients’ vision outcomes.

Investigators find genetic factors may influence diabetic eye disease

Study results, including data from approximately 42,000 eyes, found diabetic retinopathy severity is a risk factor for diabetic eye disease progression. Other findings support the idea that genetic factors may influence the development of proliferative diabetic retinopathy versus diabetic macular oedema.
