    Dynamic Range of Focus of the Eye: Understanding Biomechanics and Kinematics: Part 1

    A PRIMARY FOCUS IN OPHthalmic health care has been on providing solutions to help our patients “see” more clearly and curtail the effects of uncurable age-related eye diseases, such as presbyopia, cataracts, glau-coma, and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The eye contains more than 2 million working parts and is considered the second most complex organ …

    Improvement in Accommodation and Dynamic Range of Focus After Laser Scleral Microporation: A Potential Treatment for Presbyopia

    Purpose: To examine the ocular changes in accommodation, wavefront aberrations, and dynamic range of focus (DROF) after laser scleral microporation (LSM) for treating presbyopia.

    Unlocking the recovery of dynamic range of focus with microporation therapeutics

    Laser Scleral Microporation (LSM) is a therapy which represents the first biomechanical solution to the biomechanical problems of progressive presbyopia. The therapy is performed using the VisioLite® Ophthalmic Laser system developed by Ace Vision Group (AVG). Today, having no biomechanical option able to meet the loss of dynamic range of focus (DRoF) that occurs with progressive …

    Dr. Robert Ang in CRST 

    What other future treatments have promise?  Laser scleral microporation is under investigation as a laser treatment for patients with emmetropic presbyopia. Four quadrants of the sclera are treated with an Er:YAG laser to uncrosslink the sclera and rejuvenate the accommodative mechanism (see video demonstration below). Treatment does not appear to affect the visual axis or …

    Pathogenesis of Presbyopia: A New Understanding of an Age-Old Disease

    FOR MOST OF HISTORY, PRESBYOPIA has been defined as a “normal” refractive error caused by age, with discussion limited to the loss of near vision beginning in our 40s. Because we have had no effective therapeutic interventions available, presbyopia has been accepted as a natural part of life and treated primarily by changing power at either …

    Emerging medical and surgical presbyopic treatments

    Ophthalmologists have several options at their disposal for the treatment of presbyopia, according to Elizabeth Yeu, MD, a partner at Virginia Eye Consultants and an assistant professor at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk. Speaking recently at the virtual 2022 Toronto Cataract Course, Yeu noted that innovation is advancing in presbyopia correction. “We have spent …

    Is Presbyopia Finally Taking Center Stage?

    Presbyopia is the eye condition that will impact 100% of patients at some point. It has long been said that a solution for presbyopia is the “holy grail” of eye care. While there is not yet a cure for presbyopia, there are more tools than ever before to help patients have functional near and intermediate …

    Is presbyopia the newest specialty?

    The presbyopia landscape is crowded to­day with innovations to treat this condition, including corneal procedures, pharmacologic treatments, scleral procedures, and phakic and intraocular (IOL) lenses, according to Karolinne Maia Rocha, MD, PhD, director of cornea and refractive surgery at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. Corneal proceduresProcedures that are coming down the pike …

    The Answer for Aging Eyes?

    The accommodation mechanism is the core moving “engine” of the eye – responsible for dynamic range of visual focus, as well as hydrodynamic equilibrium and circulatory functions. Doesn’t it seem likely that there would be potential ocular health benefits in rejuvenating rigid ocular tissues?  Today, there still is no authentic viable therapeutic to rejuvenate ocular …
