A new lens option for enhanced monovision performance

In “modified monovision”, which can be achieved with a new IOL, one eye predominantly manages distance vision and the other near vision—as with standard monovision—but the extended depth of field provides a degree of intermediate vision that is independent of spectacles.

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.

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.
