      Detecting corneal bulging with swept-source OCT

      C orneal ectasia after LASIK ranks in seriousness to endophthalmitis after cataract surgery. While the severity of each problem differs, these continue to be a significant issue when they occur after their relative surgeries. Ectasia continues to mystify, to some extent. Forme fruste keratoconus, numerous LASIK procedures, and even high myopia are just some of the risk factors for the disease, but nothing predicts with 100% accuracy who will get ectasia. Refractive surgery itself has been known to potentially cause forward protrusion of the posterior cornea, suggesting that minor bulging of the eye happens in some cases. Given the wide ...

      Delving into glaucoma
      How imaging devices and long-used assessments help with glaucoma detection, progression Newer methods to detect glaucoma strike a balance with the tried-and-true but less high-tech methods, a number of ophthalmologists said. Although state-of-the-art imaging methods to detect glaucoma earlier are now commonplace, glaucoma specialists said they don’t want to lose the value of perimetry, gonioscopy, tonometry, visual fields, and other detection tests. For now, high-tech versus low-tech detection methods are used hand in hand. “The most common tests within glaucoma are perimetry and scanning computerized ophthalmic diagnostic imaging,” said Kevin J. Corcoran, C.O.E., C.P.C., F ...

      Corneal therapeutics with the femtosecond laser
      One of the approved therapeutic uses of the femtosecond laser is for astigmatic keratotomy (AK) to treat either naturally occurring or post-surgical astigmatism. “One of the ways that this laser is an advantage is that the cuts are very uniform and you can program them to be a certain depth,” Dr. Yoo said. “We’ve looked at these AK cuts on OCT (optical coherence tomography) post-operatively trying to see how close we are to the desired depth, and it looks as if the OCT measurements are very close to what we want them to be.”

    4. Reviewing the AC Cornea OCT

      New optical coherence technology on the horizon may allow surgeons a better way to image opaque corneas he AC Cornea OCT (Ophthalmic Technologies Inc., Toronto, Canada) was reviewed by researchers at The New York Eye & Ear Infirmary Retina Center, and found to be useful in a variety of ways, although there were some drawbacks. “Its noninvasive technique allows imaging of eyes following trauma, after surgery, or with active infections,” wrote lead study author Julian P. S. Garcia Jr., M.D., New Y
