Hemidivisional vector planning to reduce and regularize irregular astigmatism by laser treatment.

Graefes Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmol 2022 Mar 9. Epub 2022 Mar 9.

NewVision Clinics, Melbourne, Australia.

Purpose: To demonstrate how hemidivisional vector planning of refractive laser treatments of astigmatism can be used to directly address idiopathic corneal irregular astigmatism that has an asymmetrical, non-orthogonal bow tie topography appearance.

Design: Case study.

Methods: The cornea is conceptually divided into two hemidivisions along the flat meridian of the corneal topographic astigmatism (CorT), which means that each hemidivision will approximately correspond to one lobe of the asymmetric, non-orthogonal topographic bow tie. Read More

Refractive surgery for older children and adults with accommodative esotropia: a systematic review.

Ophthalmic Res 2022 Feb 28. Epub 2022 Feb 28.

Introduction: Accommodative esotropia (AET) is characterized by an esodeviation of the eyes due to uncorrected hyperopia, deficient fusional divergence, or high accommodative convergence. Decreasing hyperopia would reduce accommodative convergence and strabismus. We sought to review the existing evidence regarding the outcomes of refractive surgery in patients with AET. Read More

Ophthalmol Ther 2021 Sep 19;10(3):547-563. Epub 2021 May 19.

Hoopes Vision Research Center, Draper, UT, USA.

Introduction: Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) for the correction of hyperopia and hyperopic astigmatism is challenging and has been less studied than for the correction of myopia and myopic astigmatism. The aim of this study was to analyze the refractive outcomes of LASIK in hyperopia and hyperopic astigmatic eyes using a wave-front optimized laser platform (the Allegretto EX500 laser) and perform a historical comparison with other excimer lasers within the past two decades.

Wavefront excimer laser refractive surgery for adults with refractive errors.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2020 12 18;12:CD012687. Epub 2020 Dec 18.

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, Denver, Colorado, USA.

Background: Refractive errors (conditions in which the eye fails to focus objects accurately on the retina due to defects in the refractive system), are the most common cause of visual impairment. Myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism are low-order aberrations, usually corrected with spectacles, contact lenses, or conventional refractive surgery. Higher-order aberrations (HOAs) can be quantified with wavefront aberration instruments and corrected using wavefront-guided or wavefront-optimized laser surgery. Read More

Manufacture of Contact Lens of Nanoparticle-Doped Polymer Complemented with ZEMAX.

Nanomaterials (Basel) 2020 Oct 15;10(10). Epub 2020 Oct 15.

Department of Chemical & Process Engineering, Faculty of Engineering & Built Environment, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Bangi, Selangor 43600, Malaysia.

Many people suffer from myopia or hyperopia due to the refractive errors of the cornea all over the world. The use of high refractive index (RI), Abbe number (), and visible light transmittance (T%) polymeric contact lenses (CLs) holds great promise in vision error treatment as an alternative solution to the irreversible laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery. Titanium dioxide nanoparticles (TiO NPs) have been suggested as a good candidate to rise the RI and maintain high transparency of a poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA)-TiO nanocomposite. Read More
