Vitrectomy with brachytherapy shows no increase in metastatic risk
The metastatic prognosis does not increase when vitrectomy is performed at the time of brachytherapy.
OCTA: Future Is bright, fast, and wide in ROP
Advances in optical coherence tomography (OCT) and OCT angiography (OCTA) may enable more objective and accurate diagnosis of ROP in the future.
Subretinal therapy offers promise of lighter treatment burden for AMD
RGX-314 gene therapy offers patients the potential for a lower treatment burden with one subretinal injection of a gene therapy delivering an anti-vascular endothelial growth factor protein.
Phase IV study shows improved DME outcomes with fluocinolone acetonide implant
The fluocinolone acetonide 0.2 mcg/day implant (Iluvien, Alimera Sciences) offers an additional option for treating diabetic macular edema that reduces the need for subsequent therapy with anti-vascular endothelial growth factor or steroid treatment.
Povidone iodine reapplication: Protocol for preventing endophthalmitis
Take-Home Message: A pearl for preventing endophthalmitis following intravitreal injections: avoid eyelid contact with the injection site after the last application of povidone iodine.
Outcomes differ from trials with ‘real-world’ anti-VEGF therapy for DME
The visual outcomes after anti-VEGF therapy administered to treat diabetic macular edema in the “real world” do not achieve those reported in randomized clinical trials. Eyes with better baseline visual acuity are disproportionately affected.
How to manage patient’s IOL expectations pre-operatively
Patient selection is the key factor in obtaining the best visual outcomes after cataract surgery and intraocular lens implantation.
IOL-telescope may improve vision for patients with advanced maculopathies
Take-Home Message: The Telescopic Intra-Ocular Lens for Visually Impaired People Revolution system is promising to improve the vision in patients with maculopathies.
Study finds YAG laser vitreolysis may be option for floaters
Take-Home Message: YAG laser vitreolysis might be a treatment option for patients with complaints of floaters. Larger studies of longer duration are needed to corroborate these results.
Aqueous angiography: Moving toward individualized IOP control
Aqueous angiography: Moving toward individualized IOP control
