Eyetube stopped by Fort Lauderdale to visit the Advanced Refractive Congress, the innovative meeting where ODs and MDs share the podium and discuss the latest topics relevant to collaborative eye care. Three of the videos presented at the meeting are teased here. Click a video image to be taken to the corresponding video on Eyetube’s home for optometry, EyetubeOD. There, you can watch the video and view others in the collection from the Advanced Refractive Congress.
The DREAM Study in the Clinic
The results of the DREAM study answered some questions about the treatment of dry eye disease—and raised even more. Douglas Devries, OD; Whitney Hauser, OD; and Walter O. Whitley, OD, MBA, discuss the nuances of the DREAM study and review how it has (or has not) changed their clinical routines.
Complex Cataract Categorization
Eric Brooker, OD, discusses methods for categorizing complex cataract procedures. Dr. Brooker explains why some complex cataract cases require specific considerations and offers examples to illustrate why these complex cases require such careful planning.
Corneal Inlays: Thinking Outside the Box
Jeff Augustine, OD, and Shamik Bafna, MD, discuss their experiences using the Kamra corneal inlay (CorneaGen;) in nontraditional ways.
Using the Kamra after cataract surgery? After explantation of another inlay? Using it as a treatment for glare secondary to a peripheral iridectomy performed during phakic IOL implantation? These novel uses serve as examples of how clinicians who think outside the box can use the tools they have to maximize patient satisfaction.
