Your Cataract Instrument Checklist

As may already be evident at your own practice, patients are developing cataracts at younger ages.

Biometry-Based Concentric Tubes Robot for Vitreoretinal Surgery

Abstract—Vitreoretinal surgery requires dexterous manoeu-vres of tiny surgical tools in the confined cavity of the human eye through incisions made on the sclera.

This paper proposes a concentric tube robot for panretinal interventions without risking scleral or lens damage.

The Importance of Keeping a Well-Stocked Office

What makes an ophthalmological practice successful? Some may say the quality of the professionals at work, others may point to the use of advanced technologies, while others would argue that strong patient-client relationships are what makes or breaks a practice.
