Partner Perspective: Patient Case Study - CONTINUOUS MICRODOSING™ TREATMENT WITH ILUVIEN® (fluocinolone acetonide intravitreal implant) 0.19mg
Honors celebrate research, future generation in retinaSixteen fellows and residents show just why research in retina is on the cutting edge
Data demonstrate real-world benefits of fluocinolone acetonide implantReal-world data on a fluocinolone acetonide intravitreal implant show sustained benefits of switching to the treatment in pseudophakic eyes that are insufficiently responsive to other therapies.
Electroretinography: Out of the laboratory and into the clinicOCT has many benefits, yet falls short of reliably diagnosing and managing retinopathies and glaucoma. ERG remains the stalwart method for this application and this article highlights how technological advancements have enabled its introduction to the clinic.
Diagnosing early-stage AMD with a dark adaptation deviceA dark adaptometer (AdaptDx; MacuLogix Inc) can aid in the diagnosis of early-stage, or subclinical, age-related macular degeneration before visual loss occurs and even before structural changes are observed, and adds to the information obtained from retina cameras and OCT imaging.
Ultra-widefield angiography: New window for retinovascular featuresQuantitative assessment of retinovascular features on ultra-widefield angiography images showed significant improvements in leakage and ischemia following treatment with aflibercept in patients with diabetic macular edema and retinal vein occlusion.
Contrast sensitivity device exposes vision limitations of reattachment patientsComputerized testing of contrast sensitivity function using the Sentio Platform (Adaptive Sensory Technology) may better quantify the visual limitations of patients than traditional letter acuity after retinal detachment repair.
