    7. Microscope-integrated intraoperative optical coherence tomography-guided small-incision lenticule extraction: New surgical technique

      Microscope-integrated intraoperative optical coherence tomography-guided small-incision lenticule extraction: New surgical technique

      We describe the surgical technique of microscope-integrated intraoperative optical coherence tomography (OCT)-guided small-incision lenticule extraction. The technique enables manual tracking of surgical instruments and identification of the desired dissection plane. It also helps discern the relation between the dissector and the intrastromal lenticule. The dissection plane becomes hyperreflective on dissection, ensuring complete separation of the intrastromal lenticule from the overlying and underlying stroma. Inadvertent posterior plane entry, cap–lenticule adhesion, incomplete separation of the lenticule, creation of a false plane, and lenticule remnants may be recognized intraoperatively so corrective steps can be taken immediately. In cases with a hazy ...

    8. New perspectives on the detection and progression of keratoconus

      New perspectives on the detection and progression of keratoconus

      Laser refractive surgery has increased markedly in recent years, making the detection of corneal abnormalities extremely relevant. For this reason, an accurate diagnosis of clinical or subclinical keratoconus is critical. Corneal topography is the primary diagnostic tool for keratoconus detection, and pachymetry data and corneal aberrations are also commonly used. Recently, tomographic measurements using optical coherence tomography and corneal biomechanical indices have been used. In incipient and subclinical keratoconus, the use of a single parameter as a diagnostic factor is not sufficiently accurate. In these cases, the use of algorithms and predictive models is necessary. In addition, determining whether the ...

      Evaluation of postoperative toric intraocular lens alignment with anterior segment optical coherence tomography

      We describe the use of a simple tool to evaluate the postoperative alignment of toric intraocular lenses (IOLs). The entire anterior segment is scanned using anterior segment optical coherence tomography and analyzed with an internal dedicated tool. A topographic map is displayed along with an anterior segment image, including a linear axis marker centered on the corneal apex. The marker can be rotated until it is aligned with the line connecting the IOL marking dots, precisely reproducing the IOL astigmatic axis, which is measured in angle degrees. The value of the IOL astigmatic axis is compared with the value of ...

      Anterior segment optical coherence tomography–guided management of capsular block syndrome following penetrating keratoplasty

      Capsular block syndrome (CBS) is a recognized complication after cataract surgery. It is caused by fluid accumulation in a closed chamber inside the capsular bag due to the nucleus or intraocular lens (IOL) optic occluding the capsule opening created by the continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis.1,2 We present a case of CBS following penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) with cataract extraction and IOL implantation (triple procedure) that was diagnosed using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT).
