An Introduction to Anterior Segment
There have been significant treatment updates for diseases and conditions that affect the components of the anterior segment. Examples include recent advances in cataract surgery, including the introduction of femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery and new intraocular lens (IOL) technology, and procedures such as Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) and Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK), which have significantly advanced corneal surgery.

Response to “Optical Lens Tinting—A Review of its Functional Mechanism, Efficacy, and Applications”
US Ophthalmic Review. 2020;13(1):16–7 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/USOR.2020.13.1.16
I was interested to read the review, “Optical Lens Tinting—A Review of its Functional Mechanism, Efficacy, and Applications” by Jared Raabe, Ashwini Kini, and Andrew Lee, which appeared in US Ophthalmic Review.1 I am the inventor of the FL–41 lens that features in the article. As the authors point out, the original design of the lens […]
Premium Intraocular Lenses in Patients who have had Previous Laser Vision Correction
In most of our refractive cataract practices, the people most likely to request premium intraocular lenses (IOLs) at the time of cataract surgery, are those who have had previous kerato-refractive surgery. They may have had surgery many years earlier and enjoyed the benefits of visual freedom and independence, and simply do not want to entertain […]

Image-guided Femtosecond Laser Capsular Marks for Toric Intraocular Lens Alignment—The Refractive Capsulorhexis
US Ophthalmic Review. 2019;12(2)60–4
Approximately 50% of the population aged ≥60 years exhibit >1.0 diopter (D) of corneal astigmatism,1 and 15–29% have >1.5 D.2 If their astigmatism is not corrected at the time of cataract surgery, these patients will require spectacle correction postoperatively. Toric intraocular lenses (IOLs) have been developed to help these patients achieve postoperative spectacle independence. In order to […]
Making the Perfect Winter Wonderland—A Case Report of Infectious Crystalline Keratopathy in the Setting of Chronic Nepafenac Use for Cystoid Macular Edema
US Ophthalmic Review. 2019;12(2):96–7
Infectious crystalline keratopathy (ICK) is an uncommon and indolent infection classically characterized by densely packed branching opacities in the absence of a robust inflammatory response. This infection is most often seen in the setting of prior corneal surgery, particularly penetrating keratoplasty.1 The risk for developing ICK in these cases is potentiated by chronic localized immunosuppression to […]
