    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. …

    A New Paradigm Shift: Parts 1 and 2 (Pages 25-31)

    DUE TO THE AGING OF THE population, most of our population will spend roughly half of their lives as presby-opes. The etiology of presby-opia has been poorly understood, and treatment options have failed to address the true issues with the disease, creating compro mises in vision that patients are eager to find a solution for, …

    THE ZOOMING EYE LENS: Effects of Age on Dynamic Range of Focus

    DYNAMIC RANGE OF FOCUS (DRoF), or the total range of clear vision in a natural system, is an important biomechanical function of the accommodative apparatus responsible for adjusting the crystalline lens from both far to near (accommodation) and near to far (disaccommodation). DRoF is defined by true accommodation, pseudoaccommodation, and pupillary diaphragmatic changes, which work together …

    In-office procedures offer ophthalmic surgeons and patients the greatest flexibility and efficiency of scheduling. Procedures such as YAG capsulotomy, select laser trabeculoplasty, laser pupil iridoplasty, LASIK/PRK/SMILE and minor lid procedures are routinely done within the in-office surgery suite. A large 2016 study demonstrated the safety and outcomes of cataract procedures performed within the surgeon’s office, …

    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 …
