Cataract surgery is one of the most common surgical interventions worldwide to restore vision with a high success rate and patient cataract surgery satisfaction. In spite of the improvements made on this procedure, cataract surgery is not fully exempt from risks. Precisely, recent advances with the introduction of minimal incision cataract surgery (MICS)[…]
Recently the scientific article published by Prof. Dr. Alió in the British Journal of Ophthalmology, entitled “Fifteen years follow-up of photorefractive keratectomy up to 10 D of myopia: outcomes and analysis of the refractive regression” has been included in the F1000Prime Recommended Badge. In this research published in […]
Since the introduction of the Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) in 1990, the surgical technique for correcting refractive errors like myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism by means of laser has advanced considerably. Concretely the development of Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) has contributed specially in the innovations developed in corneal refractive surgery. Currently, […]
The crystalline lens is a structure located inside of the eyeball that in the youth is transparent, but nevertheless with the age is opacified. Although age is considered to be one of the principal reasons of opacification of the crystalline lens, it has been proved that factors like exposure to ultraviolet radiation among others influence in his […]
Enclosed I am sending to you this good news about the position of the Course Director, Jorge Alio in the Power List of Ophthalmology published by the Journal “ The Ophthalmologist” in the last issue.
Recently Prof. Dr. Jorge Alió, Director of UMH Clinical Methodology in Refractive, Cataract and Corneal Surgery Course, has signed a collaboration agreement with Adis Rapid+ journal Ophthalmology and Therapy. This agreement offers students the opportunity to publish their final course project in a journal of high international prestige at no cost if the report successfully […]
Corneal refractive surgery is one of the most performed procedures worldwide to correct refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Advances developed in Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery allow greater precision in creating the corneal flap by means of femtosecond laser and lower incidence of complications, among many other advantages. The advent […]
In patients with corneal ecstasies as keratoconus, one of the alternatives to regularize the corneal surface is the implantation of intrastromal corneal rings. As it is known keratoconus produce an increase of the corneal curvature and a decrease in corneal thickness, among other alterations. According to keratoconus evolution grade, intraestromal corneal ring features will be […]
Previously was necessary to transplant the entire cornea when keratoplasty was performed, however currently is possible to transplant only the area of the affected cornea. Indeed, the advent of femtosecond laser has allowed that keratoplasty be more precise and safety intervention. Specifically, femtosecond laser in keratoplasty surgery is used to create the donor corneal button, as for eliminate the cornea where will be grafted the corneal button ...
Keratoconus is a corneal disease characterized by progressive thinning corneal stroma, which produces increased corneal power and corneal aberrations. Different treatments have been developed to reduce the progression of keratoconus and delay keratoplasty, as intrastromal corneal rings or crosslinking among others. Advances in crosslinking procedure, as likewise in clinical devices facilitate the monitoring of the pathology, and require be updated in clinical practice ...
