    LAS VEGAS - Arcuate incisions made with a femtosecond laser reduce postoperative refractive astigmatism during cataract surgery, according to a study presented here.
    “I was very excited for this project in particular,” Clayton G. Blehm, MD, said at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery meeting. “Technology fascinates me, but combine that with health care, and sometimes tech is not always beneficial. That's been part of the question we've had for the last 10 years, which is, ‘How much better is femto?'”

    LAS VEGAS - The Omni surgical system reduced IOP through 3 months in patients with open-angle glaucoma, according to research presented at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery meeting.
    Brian Flowers, MD, presented 3-month interim data from the ORION study exploring the efficacy and safety of the Omni surgical system in pseudophakic eyes with mild to moderate open-angle glaucoma. Patients did not have a history of glaucoma surgery except for implantation of iStent or iStent inject .
    In a multicenter study comprising 54 pseudophakic eyes,

    LAS VEGAS - Light intensity was significantly decreased for patients undergoing cataract surgery with a 3D visualization platform compared with a standard operating microscope, according to a study presented here.
    In his presentation at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery meeting, Eric D. Rosenberg, DO, MSE, compared the coaxial light intensity needed for cataract surgery and the rate of postoperative visual recovery in 51 eyes using either the 3D system or a standard microscope. Twenty-seven eyes underwent surgery using the 3D visualization system affixed to the
