Outcomes of LASIK have continued to improve thanks to advances in technology and medical management.
Results from a study seem to dispel the myth that comfort and physiology may affect patients who are initiating contact lens wear.
Findings from a meta-analysis indicate that values from previous research on the minimum oxygen transmission (Dk/t) needed to avoid overnight lens-induced corneal swelling are gross underestimations.
Recent commercial advances in contact lens optics have centered primarily on presbyopia correction, but the control of myopia progression with novel CL designs potentially represents an even bigger consumer market.
Pooled results from two prospective, multicenter, double-masked, placebo-controlled studies show a multimodal anti-allergy product, bepotastine besilate ophthalmic solution 1.5%, provides rapid and long-lasting clinically significant improvement in allergen-induced ocular itching.
