Case Series: Application of Topography-guided Contoura Refractive Surgery in Highly Irregular Cornea.

Optom Vis Sci 2021 Jun;98(6):557-562

Shandong Provincial Hospital, Cheeloo College of Medicine, Shandong University, Shandong, China.

Significance: Highly irregular cornea leads to poor vision, glare, and starbursts. Although treatment is still at the exploration stage, topography-guided Contoura surgery has excellent potential for the treatment of highly irregular corneas.

Purpose: This case series reviews three patients (one with abnormal back elevation, one with corneal scar after fungal keratitis, and one with post-laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis central islands) treated with topography-guided Contoura surgery. Read More

Comparison of Visual Outcome After Hyperopic LASIK Using a Wavefront-Optimized Platform Versus Other Excimer Lasers in the Past Two Decades.

Ophthalmol Ther 2021 May 19. 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.

Methods: A one-center (Tertiary Refractive Center, Draper, Utah), retrospective, non-comparative study was conducted on 379 eyes treated with LASIK for hyperopia and hyperopic astigmatism. Read More

Vision Restoration: Cataract Surgery and Surgical Correction of Myopia, Hyperopia, and Presbyopia.

Med Clin North Am 2021 May 2;105(3):445-454. Epub 2021 Apr 2.

McKnight Vision Research Center, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami-Miller School of Medicine, 900 Northwest 17th Street, Miami, FL 33136, USA.

Cataract surgery is one of the most common surgical procedures performed in the United States. The decision to remove a cataract is determined by the patient's ability to perform activities of daily living, such as reading, driving, and watching television. Cataract surgery also offers the potential of spectacle independence with a wide array of premium intraocular lens options. Read More

Simulated biomechanical effect of aspheric transition zone ablation profiles after conventional hyperopia refractive surgery.

Math Biosci Eng 2021 03;18(3):2442-2454

Key Laboratory of Nondestructive Test (Ministry of Education), Nanchang Hangkong University, Nanchang 330063, China.

We studied the effects of the aspheric transition zone on the optical wavefront aberrations, corneal surface displacement, and stress induced by the biomechanical properties of the cornea after conventional laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) refractive surgery. The findings in this study can help improve visual quality after refractive surgery. Hyperopia correction in 1-5D was simulated using five types of aspheric transition zones with finite element modeling. Read More

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
