Presbyopic treatment

Antonio Renna, Jorge Luciano Alió, Luis Felipe Vejarano
INTRODUCTION: Presbyopia affects people from the 4(th) decade of life and is characterized by accommodative loss that leads to negative effects on vision-targeted health-related quality of life. A non-invasive pharmacological treatment providing near-lenses independence would be a truly groundbreaking approach in the treatment of presbyopia. The purpose of this review is to analyze the emerging pharmacological solutions proposed to address presbyopia. RESULTS: Several ophthalmic eye drops compounds solutions have been described in peer-reviewed papers or presented in ophthalmological tabloids and congresses...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to compare stereoacuity before and after KAMRA corneal inlay implantation for the correction of presbyopia. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This is a prospective study of 60 patients who underwent KAMRA inlay implantation. Patients were examined before and 6 months after surgery for stereoacuity, uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA), and uncorrected near visual acuity (UNVA). RESULTS: The mean stereoacuity before surgery was 29...

BACKGROUND: Refractive lens exchange and implantation of a multifocal intraocular lens (MIOL) is mainly advised for ametropes with presbyopia. Non-presbyopic young ametropes who wish spectacle-independence are usually treated with corneal refractive surgery or phakic lenses. OBJECTIVES: This retrospective case series aimed to analyse the refractive and subjective satisfaction outcome after MIOL surgery in both eyes of non-presbyopic ametropes where other treatment options were not possible...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the long-term effectiveness and safety of combined LASIK and small-aperture intracorneal inlay implantation (KAMRA; AcuFocus, Irvine, CA) for the surgical compensation of presbyopia and refractive errors. METHODS: Retrospective chart review of all ametropic, presbyopic patients who underwent combined LASIK and KAMRA inlay implantation at a single clinic. Demographic data and preoperative uncorrected and corrected monocular and binocular near and distance visual acuity (UNVA, UDVA, and CDVA) with manifest refractive spherical equivalent (MRSE) were collected and analyzed...

PURPOSE: The feasibility, in terms of safety and potential efficacy, of a new drug combination for binocular use as a noninvasive pharmacological solution for treating presbyopia was examined. METHODS: Fourteen emmetropic presbyopic subjects (28 eyes) were given one drop of the preparation under study in each eye. For each patient, the uncorrected distance visual acuity, uncorrected near visual acuity, near and far refraction, best corrected visual acuity, best corrected far-near visual acuity, photopic and scotopic pupil size, Schirmer's test, endothelial cell count, intraocular pressure, keratometry, pachymetry, and anterior chamber depth were all performed or assessed prior to the administration of the eye drops and then 0...

Femtosecond laser technology has become widely adopted by ophthalmic surgeons. The purpose of this study is to discuss applications and advantages of femtosecond lasers over traditional manual techniques, and related unique complications in cataract surgery and corneal refractive surgical procedures, including: LASIK flap creation, intracorneal ring segment implantation, presbyopic treatments, keratoplasty, astigmatic keratotomy, and intrastromal lenticule procedures.

PURPOSE: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of the AcuFocus small aperture corneal inlay (KAMRA) for the correction of presbyopia using femto-LASIK. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This is a prospective, non-randomised cohort study including 50 presbyopic patients with hyperopia, emmetropia or mild myopia. The intracorneal inlay was implanted in the non-dominant eye using a VisuMax femtosecond laser (Zeiss 500 kHz) to create a superior-hinged flap. The inlay was centred over the visual axis...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: To analyse visual outcomes and corneal changes 3 years after intrastromal femtosecond laser presbyopia treatment. METHODS: In a prospective, unicentric clinical trial, 25 presbyopic patients received INTRACOR treatment (Technolas femtosecond laser) on their non-dominant eye. Examinations were performed preoperatively as well as 1, 24 and 36 months postoperatively and included refraction, near, intermediate and distance visual acuity tests, reading speed, corneal topography, stray light measurement, endothelial cell count and slit-lamp examination...

The aim of this study is to establish and to prove a new lenticule shape for the treatment of hyperopia using a 500 kHz femtosecond laser and the femtosecond lenticule extraction (ReLEx FLEx) technique. Improved lenticule shapes with a large transition zone of at least 2 mm adjusted to the 5.75 mm optical zone were designed. A prospective pilot study on nine eyes of five patients who underwent an uncomplicated FLEx using VisuMax femtosecond laser (Carl Zeiss Meditec AG) for spherical hyperopia was performed...

After nearly three decades of innovation in excimer laser, today we are presented with a state of the art generation targeting minimally invasive refractive surgery with high speed laser, faster trackers, pupil monitoring systems and better customization profiles. These systems are capable of delivering better treatments with less induced postoperative high order aberrations. The results reported by many authors had confirmed the superiority in efficiency and safety profiles of this generation compared to previous generations...

PURPOSE: According to Helmholtz, accommodation is based on the flexibility of the crystalline lens, which decreases with age, causing presbyopia. With femtosecond (fs)-lentotomy treatment, it is possible to restore the flexibility of presbyopic lenses. The efficiency of the treatment can be systematically evaluated using the finite element method based on experimental data. The purpose of this study was to quantify the shape change of ex vivo lenses in different accommodation states according to the fs-lentotomy treatment...

PURPOSE: To evaluate distance and near image quality after hybrid bi-aspheric multifocal central presbyLASIK treatments. DESIGN: Consecutive case series. METHODS: Sixty-four eyes of 32 patients consecutively treated with central presbyLASIK were assessed. The mean age of the patients was 51 ± 3 years with a mean spherical equivalent refraction of -1.08 ± 2.62 diopters (D) and mean astigmatism of 0.52 ± 0.42 D. Monocular corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA), corrected near visual acuity (CNVA), and distance corrected near visual acuity (DCNVA) of nondominant eyes; binocular uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA); uncorrected intermediate visual acuity (UIVA); distance corrected intermediate visual acuity (DCIVA); and uncorrected near visual acuity (UNVA) were assessed pre- and postoperatively...
