BACKGROUND: This study aimed to investigate the clinical application of phakic toric intraocular collamer lens (TICL) implantation in treating ametropia following deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) for patients with keratoconus, especially the effectiveness and safety of high astigmatism and indications of TICL implantation after corneal transplantation. METHODS: Using the self-controlled case series observation approach, 9 patients with ametropia (9 eyes) who underwent DALK surgery for keratoconus 1...

During toric intraocular lens (IOL) implantation, surgeons must take particular care to ensure that inaccurate preoperative measurement and intraoperative misalignment do not cause unexpected postoperative residual astigmatism. This retrospective, comparative case series study aimed to analyze the rotational deviation, or cyclotorsion, of three corneal marking methods: VERION digital marker (VDM; reference), horizontal slit beam marking (HSBM), and subjective direct visual marking (SDVM) on the table (using a bevel knife tip)...

Nobuhiro Shimizu, Daisuke Sakata, Eric A Schmelz, Naoki Mori, Yasumasa Kuwahara
Astigmatid mites depend on bioactive glandular secretions, pheromones, and defensive agents to mediate intra- and interspecies interactions. Aliphatic formates, such as (Z,Z)-8,11-heptadecadienyl formate (8,11-F17) and (Z)-8-heptadecenyl formate (8-F17), are rarely encountered natural products that are abundant in Sancassania sp. Sasagawa (Acari: Acaridae) mite secretions. Linoleic acid and oleic acid are predicted as key intermediates in the synthesis of the closely related aliphatic formates. To gain insight in this biosynthetic pathway, acarid mite feeding experiments were conducted using (13)C-labeled precursors to precisely track incorporation...

PURPOSE: To determine differences in peripheral aberrations in hyperopic, emmetropic and myopic groups. METHODS: Cycloplegic peripheral aberrations for 5 mm pupils were measured at 39 locations across 42° × 32° of right eye visual fields with a COAS-HD Hartmann-Shack aberrometer in nine hyperopes (mean age 29 ± 5 years, spherical equivalent refraction M + 1.47 ± 0.58 D), 20 emmetropes (28 ± 7 years, +0.06 ± 0.36 D) and 20 myopes (27 ± 6 years, -2...

PURPOSE: To establish the optical performance of currently available Alvarez variable-power spectacles in relation to their possible utility for ametropes and presbyopes. METHODS: Two commercial designs of variable-power (variable-focus) spectacles were studied: FocusSpecs and Adlens Adjustables. Using focimetry, power and prism at three different power settings were measured across the aperture of the lenses of each design and local optical quality was explored in more detail using interferometry...

BACKGROUND: Trabeculectomy (TET) is still the most commonly performed surgical treatment in dealing with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) worldwide. Canaloplasty (CP) as a nonpenetrating surgical procedure has recently become a new option to efficiently reduce intraocular pressure (IOP). OBJECTIVES: This study compared both surgical procedures concerning the efficacy in IOP reduction. Furthermore we compared IOP fluctuation, postoperative medication, visual acuity, astigmatism and postoperative interventions and complications...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the initial outcomes of femtosecond laser arcuate keratotomies (AK) to correct high astigmatism after keratoplasty. METHODS: This retrospective non-comparative interventional study included 52 consecutive patients (52 eyes) who underwent Intralase-enabled arcuate keratotomies. Changes in uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA), best spectacle-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), mean refractive and keratometric astigmatism, preoperative and postoperative manifest refraction and complications were the main outcome measures...

One of the limiting noise sources in the current generation of gravitational wave detectors, such as the advanced laser interferometer gravitational wave observatory (aLIGO), is the thermal noise in the interferometer's test mass coatings. One proposed method to reduce the coupling of this noise source to the gravitational wave readout is using a laser beam in the higher-order spatial LG<sub>33</sub> mode within the interferometer. Here we show that the current four-mirror cavities of aLIGO are not compatible with Laguerre-Gauss modes due to astigmatism...

REVIEW
Jocelyn Kuryan, Anjum Cheema, Roy S Chuck
BACKGROUND: Near-sightedness, or myopia, is a condition in which light rays entering the eye along the visual axis focus in front of the retina, resulting in blurred vision. Myopia can be treated with spectacles, contact lenses, or refractive surgery. Options for refractive surgery include laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy (LASEK) and laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK). Both procedures utilize a laser to shape the corneal tissue (front of the eye) to correct refractive error, and both create flaps before laser treatment of corneal stromal tissue...

Purpose. To report the visual, refractive, and corneal topography and wavefront aberration results of accelerated corneal cross-linking (CXL) during a 24-month follow-up. Methods. Forty-seven eyes underwent riboflavin-ultraviolet A-induced accelerated CXL treatment (30 mW/cm(2) with a total dose of 7.2 joules/cm(2)). Uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA), corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA), spherical and cylindrical values, keratometry (K) measurements (Ksteep, Kflat, Kavg, and Kapex), central corneal thickness, and anterior corneal aberrometric analyses including total wavefront error (WFE), total high order aberration (HOA), astigmatism, trefoil, coma, quadrafoil, secondary astigmatism, and spherical aberration were evaluated...

PURPOSE: To calculate the surgically induced astigmatism (SIA) following LASIK and identify any association between SIA and the target induced astigmatism (TIA) at 1 year postoperatively. METHODS: The SIA was calculated using the TIA and residual astigmatism values for [A] myopic astigmatism and [B] mixed astigmatism treated with either the [I] WaveLight Allegretto EyeQ 400-Hz (Alcon Laboratories, Inc. Fort Worth, TX) or [II] Schwind Amaris 750S (Schwind eye-tech-solutions, Kleinostheim, Germany) platforms...

Purpose. To investigate refractive changes after strabismus correction procedures among adults. Methods. Retrospective chart review of adult patients who had horizontal recti muscles surgery with preoperative and postoperative cycloplegic refraction measurements. The preoperative refraction was mathematically subtracted from the postoperative refraction, and the induced refractive changes were statistically analyzed. Vector analysis was used to examine the magnitude of the toric change. The proportion of clinically significant refractive change was evaluated as well...

PURPOSE: To compare the visual and refractive outcomes after laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery for correction of myopia or myopic astigmatism using a six-dimensional Amaris excimer laser. METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, we enrolled 47 eyes of 28 patients (age: 19-36 years) with myopia or myopic astigmatism. We used the Custom Ablation Manager protocol and performed ablations with the SCHWIND AMARIS system. LASIK flaps were cut with an iFS Advanced Femtosecond Laser...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the torsional and flattening effect of steep meridian incisions and influence of posterior corneal astigmatism (PCA) on total corneal astigmatism (TCA) after cataract surgery. METHODS: One hundred thirty-two eyes underwent cataract surgery with steep meridian 2.2 mm microcoaxial and 2.85 mm conventional clear corneal incisions. Eyes were divided into with-the-rule (WTR) astigmatism and against-the-rule (ATR) astigmatism groups depending on the steeper meridian and measured with autokeratorefractor and Pentacam® before surgery, at 1 day, 1 week, 1 and 2 months postoperatively...

Clayton Blehm, Richard Potvin
PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of the Verion-LenSx guided arcuate incision technique to reduce refractive astigmatism in a pseudophakic population. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A prospective single-arm study was conducted in which one or both eyes of subjects required reduction of 1.0-2.0 D of refractive astigmatism after previous cataract surgery or refractive lens exchange. The surgeon used the refractive cylinder in the eye and the Woodcock astigmatism nomogram for preoperative planning, while the LenSx femtosecond laser with the Verion Image Guided System was used to create all arcuate incisions...
