Impact of Visual Field Loss on Vision-Specific QOL Varies By Race

Socioeconomic factors played a large role, with Latino and Chinese Americans reporting a greater change than African Americans.

Birth Weight Not Correlated to SE at 40 Months of Age

This parameter is not an influential factor of refractive status as a child grows up, study shows.

Eyelid Position Affects Refractive Outcomes

Before cataract surgery, consider your patient’s ptosis. Against-the-rule astigmatism was most common in the age-related form, and with-the-rule was most common in contact lens-related cases.

Structural Thicknesses Differ Between Emmetropes and Hyperopes

The latter group had greater choroidal thickness but smaller RNFL and GCL measurements, study finds.

Identifying Patterns in Adult Myopic and Hyperopic Shifts

Smoking was a risk factor for the latter, while female sex and myopic baseline SE were associated with the former, study finds.

Trifocal IOLs Provide Good VA for Some Astigmats

However, conventional options may be better if post-op astigmatism was between 0.75D and 1.00D.

A Little VT Goes a Long Way

This pair of cases highlights the technique’s usefulness in those patients who could never get by with lenses alone.

Updates Come in Threes

Consider replacing or upgrading tests patients and doctors dislike.

Epithelial Integrity Linked with Post-LASIK Success

A thickness greater than 60.5μm suggests the patient may have better visual outcomes.

Don’t Forget Refraction for Ocular Disease Patients

More than 25% seeking low vision rehab gained at least a two-line improvement.
