In an increasingly technologic world, blue light—omitted by devices like cell phones and computers—is inescapable. It’s important to know how it contributes to AMD, and how your patients can take steps to protect their eyesight with three easy tips from Alan Mendelsohn, MD.

Diabetes doubles the risk of cataract in the general population, with an even greater increased risk among people aged under 70, according to researchers.
Findings of a study determining the prediction error in the magnitude of residual astigmatism after cataract surgery with a toric intraocular lens (IOL) suggest that use of intraoperative wavefront aberrometry for toric power selection could enhance the refractive outcome in a large subset of eyes.
The famous line from George Bernard Shaw's "Man and Superman"—"those who can, do; those who can't, teach"—is sometimes quoted to explain why certain of us choose a career in academics. Fortunately for many medical students, the head of medical student education in my medical school was both a doer and a teacher.
Results of a retrospective study show that simple congenital ptosis, even when the pupil is obstructed, is less amblyogenic than conventionally thought. The study supports correcting refractive error and strabismus before considering ptosis surgery.
Results of a randomized controlled trial suggest that treatment with topical trehalose 3% ophthalmic solution might increase the rate of re-epithelialization after PRK.
