COVER FEATURE: Laser vision correction revisited
New technologies in corneal refractive surgery poised to spur growth
New technologies are bringing patients in off the sidelines and expanding the possibility of laser vision correction to those who might not have been candidates before, physicians say
Treating irregular corneas
Several new technologies are allowing refractive surgeons to significantly improve these patients' quality of vision
Looking at LASIK's advances
Surgeons and industry continue to improve outcomes and boost patient satisfaction
How to start performing refractive surgery
Physicians discuss expanding the practice of the comprehensive ophthalmologist to include more procedures
Tips and techniques for optimizing approved MIGS
Microinvasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) lowers IOP with less tissue disruption than traditional glaucoma surgeries and has been found to effectively treat mild to moderate glaucoma
Laying the groundwork for CyPass use
Glaucoma surgeons familiar with the MIGS device share surgery and patient selection pearls
XEN Gel Stent: When to use and how to implant
"Hybrid" MIGS device launches in U.S. market
Comparing glaucoma procedures
Experts discuss use of trabeculectomy, tube shunts, and XEN Gel Stent
One way to match IOLs to patients' visual goals
Carefully constructed questionnaires can help surgeons connect clinical options to patients' needs and desires
Cutting-edge technologies and better outcomes
New toric IOL and trifocal IOL studies presented at the 21st Winter Meeting of the ESCRS demonstrate the benefits of cutting-edge technology
Microscope settings for cataract surgery
Minimizing accommodation, scope position, illumination type, maximizing red reflex, and more
Nepafenac to fight off CME
Effective against CME in patients with risk factors
Nonsurgical treatment of presbyopia
What drops can do
LASIK patients benefit from plugs at the time of surgery
Symptom questionnaire scores, corneal staining, and osmolarity improve with punctal occlusion
High oxygen enhances epi-on PiXL efficacy
Preliminary data shows corrections of more than 1.0 D in cases of low-grade myopia using 4-mm epi-on PiXL under high-oxygen conditions
Wavefront-guided vs. wavefront-optimized laser treatments
Both provide good outcomes with minimal induction of higher-order aberrations
Evolution of tonometry: Are we overdue for a new clinical standard?
The Goldmann tonometer's shortcomings are well documented; might newer tonometers provide a better clinical standard?
Primary tube versus trabeculectomy study
Clarifying the optimal surgical care process for glaucoma
Femtosecond corneal laser platforms: Offering better vision and better flap predictability than microkeratomes
The first in this series highlights three femtosecond lasers available today
Delivering on sustained promises for glaucoma
Intraocular and periocular external drug delivery systems
