    Dr. Rick Wolfe | 31 March 2015

    Laser assisted cataract surgery is a disruptive technology – but is it the way forward? To its proponents, femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (LACS) is said to be the future of cataract surgery, providing greater refractive accuracy, efficacy... Read More

  8. 2CPD Pts: Anterior segment imaging systems...

    Dr. Daya Sharma | 26 March 2015

    Modern imaging technology allows an unprecedented ability to demonstrate pathology to facilitate diagnosis and treatment planning, and to use this to explain conditions to patients. It also enables us to communicate better with our colleagues, in an age of... Read More

  9. 2CPD Pts: Corneal Dystrophies What is that...

    Nicole Carnt | 26 March 2015

    You are doing a contact lens fit. The cornea looks clear but you pop in some fluorescein to get a better picture of any dryness staining and see some black irregular lines with fluorescein pooling beside them. Is that negative staining you think and could... Read More
