Study on the Ocular involvement in metastatic and systemic malignancies

Ocular Involvement of Systemic Malignancies Systemic malignancies affecting the eye often involve the choroid or the orbital area of the eye, leading to different ocular manifestations. Ocular malignancies are relatively rare compared to malignancies of other parts of the human body. The American Cancer Society estimates there will be about 3,300 new eye cancer

Using Nanofiber Antibiotic Sutures Prevent Ophthalmic Infections

Using Nanofiber Antibiotic Sutures to Prevent Ophthalmic Infections Sutures are medical devices applied on the site of injury or surgery. Sutures prevent infection, minimize scarring, and fasten recovery. As of today, the only drug-eluting sutures available for antibacterial application in most surgeries are coated with triclosan. It’s known that putting drugs

Meta-Analysis to Determine Optimal Therapy Strategies in Macular Degeneration

Meta-Analysis Results of Clinical Trial Aimed at Determining Optimal Therapeutic Strategies for anti-VEGF Therapy in nAMD Background of this Study Neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) affects as many as 196 million people worldwide, and is a major cause of severe vision problems including blindness. Despite its prevalence, disagreements about the treatment options

The Future of Glaucoma Therapy? Microneedles and the Reduction of Intraocular Pressure

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

Use of nanotechnology to deliver topical ophthalmic medications
