Visual Rehabilitation in Combined Surgical Procedures: Bridging Two Eye Poles for Better Vision

Description

We live in an era of major achievements in ocular surgery, both in the anterior and posterior segment. Usually, both ocular specialties present their innovations and results from their own point of view. Retina specialists, for instance, rather treat the macular edema and ETDRS letters and fall short of commenting important refractive aspects. Generally speaking, with minimal invasive retinal procedures the refractive outcome becomes more important.

The introduction of femtolaser assisted cataract procedures, premium intraocular lenses, or the evolution of 23-gauge, 25-gauge, and 27-gauge pars plana vitrectomy is just recent innovations that are worthy to be mentioned; especially as in daily routine a combination of them is becoming common practice. More importantly do pre-, intra-, and postoperative diagnostics provide a better understanding of vision rehabilitation or recovery. The constant improvement of the resolution of spectral domain OCT is thus a wonderful tool to educate the patients (and the surgeons) about vision prognosis (e.g., the expected impact of removal of various types of epiretinal membranes). By bridging benchmarks of the anterior with the posterior eye pole, our knowledge of combined, innovative, and minimal-invasive surgical strategies hence may offer better care for the patients. Considering the many case series of new surgical techniques to combine the anterior and posterior segment (e.g., glued IOL and Keratoplasty, Femtosecond Cataract Surgery and Peeling, Ahmet valves, and secondary astigmatism correction), there is a huge spectrum of possible manuscripts for publication.

We invite clinicians and investigators to submit original research, case series, and reviews that will contribute to the definition of combined surgical procedures that incorporate anterior and posterior techniques, implants, or outcome measures. We are particularly interested in articles exploring the current concept of minimal-invasive combined cornea, glaucoma, lens, and retinal surgical cases.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Femtolaser in ocular surgery (cornea and lens)
  • Premium IOLs in combined surgeries (toric IOLs after buckle surgery or glaucoma shunts)
  • Add-on IOLS for the correction of residual refractive errors. The use of intraoperative surgical devices (intraoperative OCT and aberrometry)
  • The use of innovative anterior and posterior surgical equipment and also the evaluation of intraoperative tamponades-like viscoelastics, fluids, gases, or silicon-oils
