Simultaneous Topography-guided Custom Ablation With Corneal Cross-linking for Keratoconus: 10-Year Prospective Outcomes
T-CAT plus CXL is a safe and effective technique even in the long term for regularizing the anterior corneal surface with significant visual improvement and reduction in higher order corneal aberrations.

Predictability of the Achieved Lenticule Thickness in Keratorefractive Lenticule Extraction for Myopia Correction
The reduction in CCT was stable from one month of follow-up. The findings are predictable, showing a certain level of the lenticules becoming slightly thinner than their respective laser read-outs.

Effective Optical Zone and Centration Following SMILE and FS-LASIK for High Myopia Calculated With a Novel Method
A larger EOZ and less SA were observed after SMILE than after FS-LASIK in eyes with high myopia.

Accuracy of Seven Modern Online IOL Formulas in Eyes With Axial Lengths Longer Than 30 mm
The EVO 2.0 and K6 formulas are recommended for IOL power calculation in eyes with extreme myopia.

Optical Quality and Higher Order Aberrations of Refractive Extended Depth of Focus Intraocular Lenses
All EDOF IOLs demonstrated increased depth of focus while maintaining good simulated visual acuity at the far focus. Pupil dependency differed between the IOL models.

Refractive Outcomes of Cataract Surgery in Patients With Intrastromal Femtosecond Laser Treatment of Presbyopia
In patients with cataracts who had previous INTRACOR treatment, IOL power calculation could be inaccurate, with a tendency toward hyperopic outcomes.

September 2023

Impact of Small Incision Lenticule Extraction for High Myopia on Intraocular Pressure Measurements With Pneumotonometry
This study showed that previous SMILE surgery should be considered when interpreting APT measurements because the measurements underestimate the true IOP.

Clinical and Aberrometric Outcomes of a New Implantable Collamer Lens for Myopia and Presbyopia Correction in Phakic Patients
The outcomes support that the new ICL might be a good alternative for myopia and presbyopia correction in patients aged between 45 and 55 years.

The Implementation of Glasses-free 3D Display in ICL Surgery: A Pilot Study
The glasses-free 3D group achieved similar efficacy and safety compared to the conventional microscope group and glasses-free 3D surgery is expected to show a significant advantage in clinical and medical education.

August 2023

Comparison of Visual Outcomes of Two Trifocal IOLs
These results suggest that the PanOptix IOL provides better intermediate and near visual outcomes compared to the Trinova IOL and represents a good choice for patients seeking to achieve spectacle independence.

Assessment of Visual Habituation Measured With the Halo & Glare Simulator and Its Impact on Patient Satisfaction Following Quadrifocal IOL Implantation
Diffractive multifocal IOLs are a stable treatment for presbyopia and/or cataract with a high spectacle independence rate.

Comparison of Dynamic Vault Changes Following Implantation of Two Different Models of Phakic Intraocular Lenses
The Eyecryl phakic IOL showed significantly fewer light-induced changes in the central vault height (DVR) compared to the ICL, which may be attributed to the difference in the material of the two phakic IOL models.

July 2023

Rotational Stability After Implantation of Two Different Phakic Toric Intraocular Lenses
Although both implants were safe and effective in highly myopic eyes, TICL rotated less frequently than TIPCL and required fewer secondary interventions.

Analysis of Wavefront Data Obtained With a Pyramidal Sensor in Pseudophakic Eyes Implanted With Diffractive Intraocular Lenses
Correcting for the longitudinal chromatic aberration of the eye when measuring the wavefront of eyes implanted with diffractive IOLs under near-infrared light only accounts for the best focus shift due to the longitudinal chromatic aberration, but not for the wavelength dependence of the diffractive element.

Corneal Biomechanical Evaluation After Meniscus-Shaped Stromal Lenticule Addition Keratoplasty (MS-SLAK) for Keratoconus
The corneal biomechanical analyses evaluated by the Corvis ST showed that MS-SLAK for advanced keratoconus is able to increase corneal overall stiffness.

June 2023

Incidence of Microfolds Using a Standardized Three-Stage LASIK Flap Replacement Protocol
The three-stage protocol for flap positioning and management resulted in a low incidence of clinically visible microfolds and no visually significant microfolds.

Rotational Stability of a New Progressive Toric Hydrophobic Intraocular Lens With Gradually Decreasing Cylinder Power
The new toric IOL has high rotational stability. The measured values were better than the corresponding values previously reported for other toric IOLs at all times considered up to 3 months and similar to them at 6 months.

Analysis of Posterior Corneal Surgically Induced Astigmatism Following Cataract Surgery With a 1.8-mm Temporal Clear Corneal Incision
The authors suggest not adjusting for posterior corneal SIA if using a small caliber, temporal incision. It was not possible to predict posterior corneal SIA from preoperative biometric measurements.
