Femtosecond laser corneal refractive surgery for the correction of high myopic anisometropic amblyopia in juveniles


Jing Zhang, Ke-Ming Yu

2017,10(11):1678-1685   DOI10.18240/ijo.2017.11.07
Recommended ReasonThe study stresses to assess the preliminary results of the effects of femtosecond laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (FS-LASIK) and small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) to correct high myopic anisometropia amblyopia in juvenile patients. The authors found FS-LASIK and SMILE are safety and efficacy alternative methods for correcting high myopic anisometropia in juvenile, with improving visual acuity, contrast sensitivity and binocular stereopsis and helping amblyopia treatment.





Prospective study of Centurion® versus Infiniti® phacoemulsification systems: surgical and visual outcomes

Lawrence J. Oh, Chu Luan Nguyen, Eugene Wong, Samuel S.Y. Wang, Ian C.Francis

2017,10(11):1698-1702   DOI10.18240/ijo.2017.11.10

Recommended ReasonThis study evaluated the surgical outcomes (SOs) and visual outcomes (VOs) for cataract surgery using the Centurion phacoemulsification system (CPS) compared with the Infiniti phacoemulsification system (IPS) in clinical practice. Cumulated dissipated energy (CDE) was 28.87% less, and VOs were significantly improved, in denser cataracts in the CPS compared with the IPS. The Authors recommend the CPS for cases with denser nuclei.






The effect of cataract surgery on sleep quality: a systematic review and Meta-analysis


Ling Zheng, Xiao-Hang Wu, Hao-Tian Lin

2017,10(11):1734-1741  DOI10.18240/ijo.2017.11.16

Recommended ReasonThis study evaluates the effect of cataract surgery on sleep quality and found that cataract surgery significantly improved the PSQI score, derived subjective sleep quality irrespective of the IOL type implanted. These findings highlight a substantial benefit of cataract surgery on systemic health with photoreceptive restoration in addition to visual acuity improvements.







Adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopy in fundus imaging, a review and update


Bing Zhang1, Ni Li1, Jie Kang1,Yi He2, Xiao-Ming Chen1

2017,10(11):1751-1758  DOI10.18240/ijo.2017.11.18

Recommended ReasonIn this review, the authors introduced the development of adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (AO-SLO) and compared AO-SLO with other fundus examination tools like fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA) and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA). The authors addressed how AO-SLO can transition from a research to a clinical tool and indicated possible research directions of AO-SLO in future..
