Meniscus Test Beneficial for DED Diagnosis

Studies find it comparable to existing standards, but faster.

OCT Conquers Imaging Segment

The technology’s gains come at the expense of fundus photography and intravenous FA, which both decreased in the United States.

Oral FA: Fast for Better Results

The procedure generated better images 22% faster.

OCT-A Detects Nonperfusion Better Than FA

Changes in DME patients evident after one month after third anti-VEGF injection.

OCTA Useful for Conjunctival Hyperemia

The technology can also provide a better understanding of the pathophysiology of post-trabecular aqueous outflow.

Two New Tests for Low Vision

One is faster to administer and the other works in more patients.

Corneas of Glaucomatous Eyes More Deformable

Measuring biomechanical parameters could lead to better risk assessment.

What Snellen Ain’t Tellin’

Contrast sensitivity testing can help identify visual changes an acuity test might miss.

Visual Fields in the Era of OCT

Is functional testing with visual fields still necessary in the age of advanced structural imaging with optical coherence tomography?

New Glaucoma Method Reduces Structure/Function Disparity

Adding a 10-2 visual field test could shine light on early progression.
