PURPOSE: To provide an overview of the efficacy and safety of available presbyopic excimer laser ablation profiles. METHODS: Literature review. RESULTS: Monovision with excimer laser traditionally applies near correction to the non-dominant eye. Different excimer laser presbyopic approaches include the increase in depth of focus, through the controlled change of spherical aberration or asphericity, or multifocal ablation patterns with central or peripheral near vision zones...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the outcomes of simultaneous and sequential corneal crosslinking (CXL) and excimer laser surface ablation protocols in keratoconus. METHODS: A literature review was conducted using MEDLINE. The studies were divided into three groups: the sequential group included studies with CXL followed by excimer laser surface ablation later, the simultaneous group included simultaneous excimer laser surface ablation and CXL, and the no CXL group included excimer laser surface ablation only with no CXL...

PURPOSE: To report long-term outcomes of sequential customized therapeutic keratectomy for Reis-Bücklers' corneal dystrophy. METHODS: This was a retrospective review of 14 eyes of 8 patients with Reis-Bücklers' corneal dystrophy that underwent surgical peeling with a spatula of the epithelium and subepithelial membrane present in Reis-Bücklers' corneal dystrophy, with subsequent sequential customized therapeutic keratectomy featuring a multi-step approach with sequential, repeated customized excimer laser photoablations alternating with repeat intraoperative topographies to monitor and progressively reduce corneal irregularities...

PURPOSE: To report the outcomes of LASIK for mixed cylinder using the Triple-A ablation profile with the MEL 90 excimer laser (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Jena, Germany). METHODS: This was a retrospective analysis of all eyes treated by LASIK for mixed cylinder using the Triple-A ablation profile with the MEL 90 laser between July 2013 and October 2016. Patients were observed for 1 year after surgery. Standard outcomes analysis and vector analysis by the Alpins method were performed...

PURPOSE: To compare posterior corneal features and their discriminating power for differentiating normal corneas from subclinical keratoconus using the Placido dual-Scheimpflug analyzer. METHODS: Patients were retrospectively included in the study. The preoperative normal right eyes of 79 patients imaged with a Placido dual-Scheimpflug system and with a stable postoperative LASIK follow-up of a minimum of 36 months were included in the normal group and were compared to 39 contralateral topographically normal eyes with clinically evident keratoconus in the fellow eye...

PURPOSE: To assess the visual outcomes, predictability, and safety of the Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) (STAAR Surgical, Inc., Monrovia, CA) for the management of residual pseudophakic refractive error. METHODS: Forty-nine pseudophakic eyes of 40 patients in which myopic, hyperopic, or toric ICLs were implanted were retrospectively analyzed. Twenty-nine eyes had been implanted with a monofocal intraocular lens (IOL) and 20 eyes had a multifocal IOL. All IOLs were implanted in the capsular bag...

PURPOSE: To compare the concentrations of interleukin (IL) (IL-1b, IL-2, IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, IL-12p70), interferon (IFN)-γ, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, and TNF-β in the aqueous humor of patients undergoing femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) and corneal mechanical paracentesis treated with two different topical nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs): bromfenac and indomethacin. METHODS: In this prospective, randomized controlled, single-center study, aqueous humor samples were obtained immediately after performing the femtosecond laser procedure or at the start of conventional phacoemulsification...

PURPOSE: To report a case of bilateral non-tuberculous mycobacterial keratitis after small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) that was successfully treated with oral and topical fortified antibiotics. METHODS: Case report and literature review. RESULTS: An otherwise healthy 21-year-old woman presented with culture-proven bilateral Mycobacterium abscessus keratitis 8 days after undergoing SMILE, showing multiple white stromal infiltrates in the interface in both eyes...

PURPOSE: To compare the clinical outcomes with the extended depth of focus small-aperture intraocular lens (IOL) (IC-8; AcuFocus, Irvine, CA) for presbyopia compensation when implanted monocularly or binocularly. METHODS: Visual outcomes, defocus curve, patient satisfaction, and visual symptoms during a 6-month follow-up were evaluated in 11 patients (contralateral group) implanted monocularly with this IOL and with an aspheric monofocal IOL in the fellow eye (myopic target) and 6 patients (bilateral group) implanted bilaterally with the IC-8 IOL (dominant eye with plano target, fellow eye with myopic target)...

PURPOSE: To investigate the stiffening effects of corneal cross-linking (CXL) on tensile properties of anterior and posterior corneal flaps. METHODS: A Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty system was used to prepare anterior and posterior flaps from porcine corneas. The flaps were subjected to CXL and their mechanical behavior was assessed by conducting uniaxial tensile experiments. Full-thickness corneas were also cross-linked from the posterior and anterior side and their tensile behavior was measured...

PURPOSE: To investigate and compare the diagnostic ability of corneal tomography and biomechanical and combined parameters for detection of corneal ectasia. METHODS: Consecutive patients with subclinical keratoconus (SCKC) and age-matched controls were included. Only one eye from each patient was selected for analysis. The final D value from the Belin/Ambrósio Enhanced Ectasia Display (BAD) was obtained from the Pentacam (Oculus Optikgeräte, Wetzlar, Germany)...

PURPOSE: To assess the rate of unplanned vitrectomies with femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) compared to conventional phacoemulsification at a single, high-volume, multi-surgeon ambulatory surgical center. METHODS: Retrospective, comparative study of phacoemulsification cases performed in a community-based ambulatory surgical center. A chart review of 2,480 consecutive FLACS procedures performed by 30 surgeons and 36,865 consecutive conventional phacoemulsification surgeries performed by 47 surgeons was conducted...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of flap-lift LASIK performed 10 or more years after the original LASIK procedure. METHODS: All patients who were treated with flap-lift LASIK 10 or more years after primary LASIK for whom records of the primary treatment could be obtained and at least 45-day follow-up refractions after re-treatment were available were included in this study. A total of 23 eyes of 20 patients were identified. The median time between primary LASIK and flap-lift LASIK was 13...

PURPOSE: To compare contrast sensitivity among participants undergoing wavefront-guided or wavefront-optimized photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) or LASIK for the treatment of myopia or myopic astigmatism 12 months after surgery. METHODS: In a prospective, randomized clinical trial, 215 participants with myopia ranging from -0.50 to -7.25 diopters (D) and less than -3.50 D of manifest astigmatism electing to undergo either LASIK or PRK were randomized to receive wavefront-guided or wavefront-optimized treatment...

Dan Z Reinstein, Glenn I Carp, Timothy J Archer, Ryan S Vida
PURPOSE: To report the outcomes of LASIK re-treatments after small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE). METHODS: Retrospective review of all eyes to have undergone a re-treatment by LASIK after primary SMILE between September 2013 and January 2016. Thin-flap LASIK was used in most cases as long as sufficient tissue was available for safe flap creation between the maximum epithelial thickness and minimum cap thickness. Otherwise, the SMILE interface was converted into a LASIK flap by the Circle technique or side cut only...
