    ARVO LIVE: AI revolution in ophthalmology

    Ophthalmology Times® talked with AnnMarie Hipsley, DPT, PhD, about 3D finite element model used to understand more about the biomechanics of accommodation and dis-accommodation as it relates to functions for visual function as well as aqueous hydrodynamics at this year’s ARVO meeting.

    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 …

    Ocular Health Implications of the Loss of Dynamic Range of Focus Function in Presbyopia

    Presbyopia is defined as the eye’s loss of ability to focus on objects at near distances, and it is the most common cause of age-related vision impairment. Presbyopia is a significant global health issue that is underdiagnosed. It affects all people in their 40s and older: an estimated 90 million people in the United States …

    Robert Ang Discusses LSM by Ace Vision

    Robert T. Ang, refractive surgeon at the Asian Eye Institute in the Philippines, talks to The Ophthalmologist about the ways Laser Scleral Microporation (LSM) therapy offered by Ace Vision Group comes to benefit him and his patients. He discusses the therapy’s mechanism of action, what the procedure involves, and the unique value offered by LSM. …

    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 …

    Treatment landscape for presbyopia evolving toward noninvasive options

    Noninvasive or minimally invasive approaches may be the solution for presbyopia before the onset of age-related cataract and a way to address the increasing need to perform close-range tasks. “The treatments that are currently available have not met our needs,” OSN Cornea/External Disease Board Member Eric D. Donnenfeld, MD, said. “Glasses are an inconvenience. Contact lenses cause …

    Presbyopia treatment options now and on the horizon

    The large number of patients worldwide with presbyopia creates a unique opportunity for eyecare providers to improve patients’ quality of life, according to George Waring IV, MD, FACS. There are more than 2.1 billion presbyopes worldwide. Dr. Waring noted the many implications of this large number, not just from a quality of life standpoint but …

    Influence of Ocular Rigidity and Ocular Biomechanics on the Pathogenesis of Age-Related Presbyopia

    This chapter discusses ocular rigidity and ocular biomechanical dysfunction as they relate to the age-related pathogenesis of presbyopia. The major factors associated with presbyopia as they relate to ocular rigidity and ocular biomechanical dysfunction are highlighted. Furthermore, specific reference is made to modifying the biomechanical properties and structural stiffness of the scleral outer coat utilizing …

    Scleral approaches to presbyopia moving from niche to mainstream

    Among the many options for presbyopia, scleral approaches stand out for their unique attempt to tackle the roots of the problem, restoring physiological function rather than aiming for optical compensation. They had a slow takeoff and limited acceptance, but step by step, through a long path of research and technological upgrades, they continue to move …
