Exploring off-label, investigational approaches for allergic conjunctivitis
Seasonal and perennial allergic conjunctivitis are common conditions that are not always well-controlled with conventional therapy. Alternative approaches and novel investigational treatments are discussed.
Formula for achieving successful multifocal IOL outcomes
Achieving satisfaction for patients interested in a multifocal IOL begins with comprehensive preoperative screening and evaluation.
Novel anti-VEGF-A agent shows promise for prolonged DME activity
Abicipar pegol (Allergan/Molecular Partners) met its primary and key secondary endpoints and demonstrated an acceptable overall safety profile in a phase II trial investigating use of the novel anti-VEGF-A agent for treatment of diabetic macular edema (DME).
Sustained-release corticosteroid implant improves, slows progression of diabetic retinopathy
Sustained intraocular delivery of fluocinolone acetonide (FAc) using the FAc 0.19 mg intravitreal implant (Iluvien, Alimera Sciences) improves and slows progression of diabetic retinopathy (DR), according to findings of post-hoc analyses of data from the pivotal Fluocinolone Acetonide for Diabetic Macular Edema (FAME) trials.
Pulse technology boosts all-laser PRK for one-step, no-touch ablation
Pulse technology boosts all-laser PRK for one-step, no-touch ablation
A transepithelial PRK (TransPRK) procedure (SmartSurface, Schwind eye-tech-solutions) provides the benefits of one-step, no-touch surface ablation plus rapid visual recovery, said Diego de Ortueta, MD.
Handheld polarizing filter augments corneal imaging with simple approach
Use of a handheld circular polarizing filter to intercept afferent and efferent light from a slit lamp or operating microscope highlights corneal structures that are otherwise invisible or barely seen.
Homeopathy for endometriosis pain?
Potentized estrogen was found to be effective in a recent study.
Infants also at risk from mothers' endometriosis
A large study reaffirms that mothers with endometriosis and their babies face more complications than those without the condition.
New insights on 'pachychoroid spectrum'
Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) is the diagnosis that usually comes to mind when retinal specialists see an eye with choroidal thickening. New insights on choroidal pathology obtained using advanced imaging techniques, however, have led to the description of a broader group of pachychoroid diseases, said K. Bailey Freund, MD, at the inaugural Retina World Congress.
