While the Ocular Hypertension Treatment Study (OHTS) provided a guiding principle for patient care, it left ophthalmologists with a lot to think about.
Presbyopia is a common age-related vision disorder characterized by a progressive inability to focus on near objects. If uncorrected or under-corrected, presbyopia can significantly impact patients’ quality of life.
Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a new non-invasive imaging technique that generates volumetric angiography images in a matter of seconds. This is a nascent technology with a potential wide applicability for retinal vascular disease.
Cyclophotocoagulation is indicated for patients with refractory glaucoma who have failed trabeculectomy or tube shunt procedures, patients with minimal useful vision and elevated intraocular pressure, and patients who have no visual potential and need
Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of avoidable blindness, characterized by a degeneration of the optic nerve and corresponding visual field loss.
Optical imaging uses light and special properties of photons to obtain detailed images of organs, tissues, cells and even molecules. The techniques offer minimally or non-invasive methods for looking inside the body.
Several ocular diseases are characterized for an excessive angiogenesis, which causes severe visual loss and ocular morbidity worldwide. The most common ones are age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy (DR) and retinal vein occlusion.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging has become widespread in ophthalmology over the past 25 years, because of its ability to visualize ocular structures at high resolution.
Ophthalmologists are physicians specializing in the comprehensive medical and surgical care of the eyes and vision.
Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) is an idiopathic disorder characterized by detachment of the neurosensory retina due to serous fluid accumulation between the photoreceptor outer segments and the retinal pigment epithelium.
