Intensive statin therapy may be more beneficial than standard dosing for patients with severe diabetic retinopathy, a recent study has found. In the overall population of DR patients, standard and intensive statin therapies have comparable impacts.
Community eye clinics with routine fundus photography (RFP) appear to have a higher referral relative to standard care, a study has shown. The increase in referral is primarily driven by nonurgent posterior segment disease.
Disease progression is likely to occur in glaucoma suspect eyes with higher corneal stiffness parameters (SPs) and lower central corneal thickness (CCT), which are indicative of thin and stiff corneas, a recent study has found.
Ocular endoscopy yields significant vision improvement when used to manage ocular trauma and allows immediate prognostication, a recent study has found. This could lead to the early identification of patients with poor visual prognosis.
Adolescents spend about 4 hours per day on their smartphones, and episodes of 20 minutes continuous use appear to lead to more myopic refractive errors, especially among those with low outdoor exposure, a study reports.
While suprachoroidal haemorrhage is a condition known for having generally poor prognoses, SCH drainage, with or without accompanying vitrectomy, seems to help improve outcomes, a recent study has found.
In the treatment of patients with chronic central serous chorioretinopathy, half-dose photodynamic therapy (PDT) appears to have superior short-term safety and efficacy compared with eplerenone, according to preliminary data from SPECTRA.
