Cornea and Contact Lens Q and A

Cataract Qualms

Diabetic patients, more at risk for surgery complications, can benefit from these considerations.

A Reason to SMILE?

The presence of dry eye complicates a patient’s prospects for refractive surgery. Which procedure is the better option?

Picking a Procedure

Previous surgeries can complicate what operation works best for patients with endothelial dysfunction.

Contact Contaminators

Acanthamoeba infections can be easily combated with stringent contact lens wear and care routines.

Talkin’ Toxicity

Consider the potential adverse effects associated with Blenrep before initiating use for myeloma treatment.

In the Clear

Current evidence suggests the possibility of prion transmission is relatively low and should not rule out affected patients from donating blood.

HSVK Reoccurrence and Risk of Resistance

The more episodes a patient has, the less likely they may be to respond to antivirals due to prolonged treatment.

Herpes Hassles

A history of HSK is not always a contraindication for CXL; active infection is.

Out for Blood

This dry eye treatment may not be first on your list, but it’s worth taking into consideration.

Water, Sclerals Don’t Mix

Exposure increases the chances of microbial infection.
