Eliminating routine but low-value preoperative tests for cataract surgery patients associated with cost savings
FINDINGSUCLA researchers found that eliminating routine but unnecessary procedures before people undergo cataract surgery has the potential to save costs and resources for hospitals serving lower-income patients.Forgoing routine chest x-rays, electrocardiograms and other preoperative procedures — which studies have found to have no clinical benefit prior to cataract surgery — was associated with a savings of $67,241 over three years at one of the medical centers analyzed in the study. The change was also associated with other benefits – for instance, one licensed vocational nurse had approximately 70 perc...

Novartis ’ Alcon picks up PowerVision for $285m
Novartis (NYSE:NVS) subsidiary Alcon said today that it acquired intraocular lens developer PowerVision for $285 million. PowerVision is developing fluid-based intraocular lens implants that use the eye’s natural accommodating response to transport fluid in the implanted lens, Fort Worth, Texas-based Alcon said. The fluid-based lens creates a continuously variable monofocal lens using the natural contractions of the eye’s muscles, Alcon said, allowing a patient to actively focus on objects in a style similar to a young eye’s crystalline lens. “We’re thrilled to officially join A...

A human model to test implants for cataract surgery
(University of East Anglia) New research from the University of East Anglia (UK) uses an improved laboratory model to simulate cataract surgery on human donor eyes. During cataract surgery, the eye's cloudy natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). The research team's latest human model allows evaluation of IOL implants under conditions that mimic the inflammation that patients experience after cataract surgery. It is hoped that the model will aid the development of next generation lenses. (Source: EurekAlert! - Social and Behavioral Science)
