Corneal refractive surgery combined with simultaneous corneal crosslinking: indications, protocols and clinical outcomes.

Corneal refractive surgery is one of the most common approaches for correction of refractive errors. Combined corneal refractive surgery and corneal crosslinking (CXL) has been proposed as a method to...

Femtosecond laser in refractive corneal surgery.

The introduction of the femtosecond (fs) laser has revolutionized ophthalmic surgery. With the worldwide application of fs-lasers, clinical outcomes and safety in corneal procedures have improved sign...

Should I Get LASIK If I'm Breastfeeding?

Changes in keratometric values and refraction can occur during pregnancy. For this reason, changing a patient's refractive prescription or undergoing corneal refractive surgery is not recommended duri...

Ultra-Widefield Autofluorescence Imaging of Retinal Detachment Compared to Retinoschisis.

Localized retinal detachment can appear similar to peripheral retinoschisis (RS) based on clinical exam alone. This study utilized ultra-widefield autofluorescence (UAF) to characterize retinal change...

Outcomes of Silicone Oil Removal in Complex Retinal Detachment.

Pars plana vitrectomy in combination with intraocular tamponade with silicone oil is a standard technique in the treatment of complex retinal detachment. Although the use of silicone oil has improved ...

The Posturing After Retinal Detachment (Post RD) Trial

A randomised controlled trial to evaluate the effect of face-down posturing on retinal displacement and distortion following retinal detachment repair.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Separation of the inner layers of the retina (neural retina) from the pigment epithelium. Retinal detachment occurs more commonly in men than in women, in eyes with degenerative myopia, in aging and in aphakia. It may occur after an uncomplicated cataract extraction, but it is seen more often if vitreous humor has been lost during surgery. (Dorland, 27th ed; Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p310-12).

Specialized ophthalmic technique used in the surgical repair and or treatment of disorders that include retinal tears or detachment; MACULAR HOLES; hereditary retinal disease; AIDS-related retinal infections; ocular tumors; MACULAR DEGENERATION; DIABETIC RETINOPATHY; and UVEITIS.

Surgical techniques on the CORNEA employing LASERS, especially for reshaping the CORNEA to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS.

Asymmetries in the topography and refractive index of the corneal surface that affect visual acuity.

A type of refractive surgery of the CORNEA to correct MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. An EXCIMER LASER is used directly on the surface of the EYE to remove some of the CORNEAL EPITHELIUM thus reshaping the anterior curvature of the cornea.
