COVER STORY


These systems show the location of the corneal astigmatism and allow for an impressively accurate place- ment of toric IOLs and limbal relax- ing incisions, he says. “They work synergistically with intraoperative aberrometry technology.”


These solutions, Donnenfeld says, enhance his surgical skills. “I no lon- ger mark corneas for cylinder. I take the measurements preoperatively and then, using my intraoperative measur- ing device, place the IOL in the right place. I have an optimal image that is transferred into my operating micro- scope, allowing me to look through the microscope and see exactly where the IOL should be placed, which reduces cylinder and ametropia.”


While most ophthalmologists rely


heavily on operating microscopes, Donnenfeld says that may no longer be the case down the road given the


Ophthalmology engagement and ownership in ASCs is growing. This comes as no surprise as there are now few patients not appropriate for outpatient ophthalmic surgery.”

3-D visualization systems that increase depth of field significantly and improve patient ergonomics without needing to use an operating microscope. “I believe there is a strong likelihood that we will eventually move away from microscopes to 3-D imaging.”


Not to be overlooked, Donnenfeld says, are new tools for glaucoma man- agement. “This is an area receiving significant attention, including a new stent that achieves great pressure-low- ering effects and an implant that cre- ates a MIGS (minimally invasive glau- coma surgery) bleb without the need for a scleral flap, providing better eye protection. These developments have changed the way we manage glaucoma by increasing safety compared to pre- vious generation trabs and tubes.” The many clinical advances in oph- thalmology are helping surgeons deliver the quality of care patients deserve, Donnenfeld says. “We are in a position to improve patient outcomes and reduce risks while not having to worry as much about patients taking their medica- tions and managing their glaucoma in an effective way. This all translates into better outcomes.”
