Video Thumnail

In this week's EyewireTV, preliminary results of the Femtosecond Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery (FLACS) study show that laser-assisted cataract surgery is as good as routine phacoemulsification but does not currently outperform it; and Carl Zeiss Meditec releases the IOLMaster 700, the first device with swept-source biometry. Also, TearScience introduces the LipiView II Ocular Surface Interferometer to assist in the diagnosis of meibomian gland dysfunction.
