We caught up with Dr Emilio de Almeida Torres Netto, of the University of Zurich, Switzerland, at the WOC annual meeting 2018. Dr de Almeida Torres Netto was recently awarded the ICO-Allergan Advanced Research Fellowship Award for his work in corneal biomechanics, keratoconus, and cross-linking, which he discusses in this video. Questions: 1. You were recently granted the ICO-Allergan Advanced Research Fellowship Award, could you tell us a bit about your research for this award? (0:19) Filmed at the 2018 World Ophthalmology Congress (WOC) of the International Council of Ophthalmology (ICOPH), June 2018, Barcelona, Spain.
Dr Soham Basak talks with us about his recent study into corneal re-graft surgeries in patients, mostly with infectious keratoconus, and how the findings of this study in India compares with the rest of the world. Future work could look into preventing the need for corneal re-graft surgery by reducing the number of infections occurring. Questions: 1. What was the background and rationale behind the study around corneal re-graft surgeries you presented at the meeting? (0:22) 2. What were the key findings? (0:58) 3. What are the next steps in this area of research over the coming years? (2:00) 4. What were the key highlights from this years meeting? (2:31) Filmed at WOC 2018, Barcelona, Spain

At this year’s ESCRS meeting, touchOPHTHALMOLOGY caught up with Dr Mayank Nanavaty to discuss updates on his current research focuses, including corneal transplant and how to diagnose the progression of keratoconus. He also described the benefits of single-use instruments, one of which is the...
Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) is becoming an increasingly popular method of corneal transplantation. Dr Alain Saad explains that this is likely due to the quicker recovery time, better visual acuity, and lower complication rate associated with DMEK. He also describes some of...
In an expert interview filmed at AAO 2018, Dr Deepinder Dhaliwal discusses the difference between Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) and descemetorhexis without endothelial keratoplasty (DWEK) for the treatment of Fuchs’ dystrophy. Dr Dhaliwal explains that in her recent study,...
At this year’s AAO meeting, we met up with Dr Eduardo Alfonso and got his insight on the hot topics being discussed at the congress. Dr Alfonso highlights some of the key messages from the session he chaired, including the diagnosis and treatment of infectious keratitis, and how molecular...
Adenoviral conjunctivitis is a common condition that is aggressively contagious, and therefore, requires early diagnosis. Often the best course of action is to let the infection run its course; however, some possible treatments are currently being investigated. One of these is a combination of...
It has long been known that temperature can affect the cornea. In the second part of Dr Farhad Hafezi’s interview, he discusses corneal cross-linking and how this procedure can benefit from reducing the corneal temperature. Recent studies have found that oxygen is a regulator of cross-linking...
