OBJECTIVE To determine whether procedure room temperature or humidity during LASIK affect refractive outcomes in a large patient sample. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. PARTICIPANTS A total of 202 394 eyes of 105 712 patients aged 18 to 75 years who underwent LASIK at an Optical Express, Inc., location in their United Kingdom and Ireland centers from(More)
Magnification of the surgical field using the operating microscope facilitated profound innovations in retinal surgery in the 1970s, such as pars plana vitrectomy. Although surgical instrumentation and illumination techniques are continually developing, the operating microscope for vitreoretinal procedures has remained essentially unchanged and currently(More)
INTRODUCTION The Argus II retinal prosthesis may improve visual function in patients with severe vision loss from retinitis pigmentosa. Optimal centration of the electrode array over the macula is important to achieve optimal visual results. Argus tack malrotation is a novel entity that may be encountered during placement, especially in patients with(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Measurements performed on fundus images using current software are not accurate. Accurate measurements can be obtained only by calibrating a fundus camera using measurements between fixed retinal landmarks, such as the dimensions of the optic nerve, or by relying on a calibrated model eye provided by a reading center. However,(More)
Scleral buckling is a highly successful technique for the repair of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment that requires intra-operative examination of the retina and treatment of retinal breaks via indirect ophthalmoscopy. Data suggest that scleral buckling likely results in improved outcomes for many patients but is declining in popularity, perhaps because of(More)
S ince its introduction in the 1950s, 1,2 scleral buckling has been a highly successful technique for the repair of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. However, the popularity of this time-proven treatment appears to be waning (see " The Dying Art of the Scleral Buckle " on the next page). 3 The decreased practice of scleral buckling may be due in part to(More)
