Post-keratoplasty fungal infections are becoming increasing more common, and the risk is significantly higher after DSEK compared with PK.
Acanthamoeba keratitis is a vision-threatening disease most frequently seen in contact lens wearers. The disease mimics numerous diseases, and early recognition is needed to achieve optimal visual outcomes.
Further calibrations for the equivalent keratometry readings (EKR) obtained by the Pentacam High Resolution (HR) (Oculus, Germany) should be conducted before they are used for total corneal power assessment in post-LASIK eyes, researchers said.
A new double-arc intrastromal corneal ring segment may help to improve visual outcomes and rehabilitate the physiologic optical surface by remodelling the cornea
Patients with dry eye can be kept healthy—and happy—by diagnosing properly, following specific treatment plans, and providing excellent communication.
Keratoconus in eyes with stage I or II disease has remained stable during follow-up to 2 years after circular keratotomy performed using a femtosecond laser.
Dr. Donaldson explains that prior corneal surgery does not necessarily indicate that FLACS would be ineffective. However, there are some immediate disqualifications to bear in mind.
Long-arc ICRS were developed to meet the needs of patients with nipple-type keratoconus. However, new study findings suggest they may also help to improve visual acuity and regularise the cornea in patients with all types of keratoconus.
Improvements in the Boston Keratoprosthesis device have resulted in fewer complications after implantation, but they still occur. Surgeons should be alert to development of infectious keratitis and endophthalmitis postoperatively.
One of the most memorable patients ever to walk into the office of Sonal Tuli, MD, had a fishhook protruding from his eye, which he held open with his fingers. Dr. Tuli offers some pointers based on experience from cases like these.
