A 23-year-old man developed unilateral corneal ectasia after bilateral small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE). The preoperative corneal topography was normal, with a minimum corneal thickness of 582  μm and 586 μm in the right eye and left eye, respectively. The refractive correction was −3.00 diopters (D) sphere in the right eye and −3.50 D sphere in the left eye. At the 12-month postoperative visit, corneal topography showed early signs of ectasia in the right eye; the ectasia had det eriorated by the 15-month examination.

Aniridia is a rare condition: the diagnostic feature is absence or hypoplasia of the iris, commonly with associated conditions, such as glaucoma and cataracts [1]. The prevalence of congenital aniridia ranges from 1:64,000 to 1:96,000 [2]. Approximately two thirds of aniridia cases show highly penetrant autosomal dominant inheritance [2].

e; JL Abstract PURPOSE:: To evaluate the long-term objective and subjective results of a trifocal intraocular lens. METHODS:: Prospective observational study enrolling 24 eyes that underwent uneventful microincisional cataract surgery with bilateral implantation of a diffractive trifocal intraocular lens (FineVision Micro F, PhysIOL, Belgium). After a mean follow-up period of 60 ± 2 months, patients answered the 10-item Near Activity Vision Questionnaire (NAVQ-10) and were assessed for uncorrected and corrected distance, intermediate and near visual acuity, defocus curve, light-dis...

CONCLUSIONS: Visual outcomes within 1.0 diopter of target refraction were achieved in 85% of eyes using the calculation methods listed above. Haigis-L, Barrett True-K (no history), and Scheimpflug TCRP 4 mm (Haigis) and TRP 4 mm (Haigis) methods showed comparably low prediction errors, despite the absence of historical patient information.

Here is a discussion I first posted in my Wheat Belly Total Health book, chapter 7: Grainless Living Day-to-Day. Glycemic index, or GI, describes how high blood sugar climbs over 90 minutes after consuming a food compared to glucose. The GI of a chicken drumstick? Zero: No impact on blood sugar. How about three fried eggs? Zero, too. This is true for other meats, oils and fats, seeds, mushrooms, and non-starchy vegetables. You eat any of these foods and blood sugar doesn’t budge, no glycation phenomena follow, no glucotoxic or lipotoxic damage to such things as your pancreas. There is nothing intrinsically wrong...

Authors: Tognetto D, De Giacinto C, Perrotta AA, Candian T, Bova A, Rinaldi S, Turco G Abstract Purpose: To compare the capsule edges ultrastructure obtained by two femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) platforms and manual continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis (CCC) using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Setting: Eye Clinic, University of Trieste, Italy. Design: Experimental comparative study. Methods: 150 anterior capsules were collected and divided into three groups as follows: Group 1 (50 capsules) obtained with manual CCC, Groups 2 and 3 (each with 50 capsules) obtained with the Cat...
