How to Control Eye Pressure in Glaucoma The irreversible damage of glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness among people ages 60 years and above(1). This condition is diagnosed through visual field tests, tonometry that measures intraocular pressure, and imaging tests that help detect optic nerve damage(2). Typically, glaucoma is
Optic 3D Modeling in Ophthalmic Treatment Visual impairment is a global health concern. Visually impaired patients are at high risk for accidents, depression, and social withdrawal. Eye disorders like age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and retinitis pigmentosa (RP) cause irreparable vision loss and affect the quality of life of
iStent Combination Therapy for Glaucoma and Cataracts Considering that glaucoma is the most common cause of irreversible vision loss and the third most common cause of vision loss worldwide, with cataracts and refractive error being the most prevalent causes, iStent combination therapy to treat glaucoma and cataracts has high therapeutic value.

Tool for Evaluating RWE in the Treatment of Retinal Disease Randomized clinical trials have long been held as the gold standard for evidence based medical practices. However, there is a growing consciousness about the value of incorporating data from real world evidence (RWE) into clinical decision making. Information from real world sources such
The Future of Glaucoma Therapy? Microneedles and the Reduction of Intraocular Pressure Around 75 million people suffer from glaucoma, making it the world’s leading eye disorder that causes irreversible blindness. Vision loss in glaucoma patients is often accompanied by the dysfunction of the retinal ganglion cell axons. This is believed to
