Technology helps to diagnose corneal ectasia
Corneal ectasia is one of the worst outcomes of laser eye surgery (LASIK). One OD takes a look at the importance of operating on good candidates and the newest technologies to do so succesfully.
Why I changed what I tell patients about refractive surgery
Refractive surgery is no stranger to evolving technology and research. Jim Owen, OD, MBA, FAAO, explains how recent research has changed the way he positions laser vision correction with his patients.
Femtosecond advances help ODs, patients
Our patients have numerous choices regarding advanced technology and eye care. Advances range from how patients check in for an appointment to what tools a surgeon uses to dissect tissue. They all have their benefits, and all come at a cost.
How to manage vision changes over time post-LASIK
How often have you heard a post-LASIK patient say his surgery “isn’t working anymore” or it has “expired?” While the corneal tissue that was ablated is gone forever, eyes can change over time, and laser vision correction does not stop time.
Preparing your patient for PRK
Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) was the original excimer laser procedure approved by the FDA-and is still a safe and effective treatment of refractive errors. PRK has the benefits of no-flap creation; therefore, there is no risk of flap complications.
