Important coronavirus updates for ophthalmologists

The Academy is sharing important ophthalmology-specific information related to the novel coronavirus, referred to as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), which was previously known by the provisional name 2019-nCoV. The highly contagious virus can cause a severe respiratory disease known as COVID-19.

The Tech.eu Interview: RadarMission

Dyslexia is a neurobiological disorder that manifests in a difficulty acquiring reading, spelling and writing skills. It presents across patients differently, and can lead to challenges with organizational skills and motor coordination. Dyslexia is one of the most prominent learning disabilities and according to some studies, nearly 7% of people are affected. These combined outcomes, alongside a lack of phonological awareness presents a challenge for sufferers trying to navigate a world that is unsuited to their needs.

Dyslexia: Greek Reading Assessment Test at Harvard's Microscope

The RADAR method easily, quickly and objectively diagnoses reading problems with emphasis on dyslexia

Dyslexia is considered to be the most common of learning difficulties as it is estimated to affect 5-17% of the general population. Despite its increased frequency, however, a significant number of affected individuals remain undiagnosed, with implications on their development.

Emmetropia on the world map of ophthalmology

Crete has been known to play an important role in the field of ophthalmology at international level in recent decades.

In particular, at this year's European Conference on Ophthalmology held in Vienna, there were four important publications on refractive surgery and cataract, by Dr. Ioannis Aslanides and Emmetropia's scientific team, which also collaborated with prominent doctors and scientists from foreign countries.

What do you know about astigmatism???

Astigmatism is a refractive error in which both distant and nearby objects appear cloudy and distorted.

This happens when the cornea is not completely spherical but has different curvatures so that the light rays focus not on one point of the retina but on two different ones.

In this case the image of an object is distorted (eg a point looks like a cross or a ball like a rugby ball). Astigmatism usually occurs in combination with myopia and hyperopia.

Dr. Aslanides for the RADAR method at CNN Greece

One in five children in our country who go to school have learning disabilities.

Around the world, dyslexics are estimated to be one billion.

Greek researchers have been able to develop an innovative method that can accurately detect if a child is dyslexic.

The method is called R.A.D.A.R (Rapid Assessment for Difficulties & Abnormalities in Reading).

The first synthetic retina was created

The first synthetic soft-lens for the retina was created

Researchers in Britain have created the world's first synthetic retina lens made of very soft material. Until now, artificial retinas were made of hard materials. The retina lens, located at the back of the eye and could be the key for proper vision as it converts light into electrical signals that are then transmitted through the nerves to the brain.

Mites are found everywhere in the house

Mites are found everywhere in the house, in the dust, on the mattress. They cause asthma, rhinitis, runny nose, itching, conjunctivitis, respiratory problems

Acaras are a widespread group of insects (arthropods) that are found in large numbers on mattresses, carpets, carpets, lounges, etc. These are tiny sized arthropods. They belong to the Dermatophagoides gebus and to the Pyroglyphidae family. The dominant species in Greece are Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (mainland Greece) and Dermatophagoides farinae (islands). Their name derives from the fact that the mites themselves, their body parts and their exudates are transported by house dust, "house dust mites".

Dyslexia: Its effects

In a recent issue of SQUMJ (Sultan Qaboos University Medical Journal), there is a very good review article on dyslexia by Dr. Shidhani and Dr. Arora. They describe the different types of dyslexia, the variety of causes and also how it is managed. Perhaps the next important question to be discussed is its social impact. How does dyslexia affect the child, parents and society at large?

Macular Involvement in Refractive Surgery

Although rare, macular complications can occur and can result in decreased vision.

Refractive surgery aims to correct errors related to the refractive media of the eye by means including corneal reshaping with an excimer laser (PRK and LASIK), refractive lens exchange (RLE), and phakic IOL implantation. This article describes the preoperative macular conditions that can affect surgical outcomes and details the occurrence and management of postoperative macular complications following refractive surgery.

Epithelium as an Indicator for Early Keratoconus

Maps of the corneal epithelium can be valuable in the decision-making process for excimer laser corneal refractive surgery, in the assessment of short- and long-term postoperative outcomes and epithelial healing after corneal collagen crosslinking (CXL), and in screening for keratoconus and pellucid marginal degeneration (PMD). Reinstein et al have contributed a large number of studies with ultrasound epithelial measurements pointing out the plasticity of the epithelium in keratoconic corneas; they have suggested that a thicker than normal central cornea epithelium may suggest ectasia, as it may reflect the thickening normalization response to inferior steepening commonly seen in ectasia.

CRST: Interview of Dr. Aslanides

1. YOU ARE TRAINED IN REFRACTIVE SURGERY WITH SUBSPECIALTY TRAINING IN NEURO-OPHTHALMOLOGY, GLAUCOMA, AND RETINA. WHAT SURGICAL CASES DO YOU FIND MOST ENJOYABLE TO PERFORM AND REWARDING ONCE SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED?

Despite my subspecialty training, I almost exclusively perform refractive surgery. Focusing on one subspecialty has allowed me to develop expertise and avoid being a jack of all trades, master of none. It is especially reward- ing when, as a result of my extensive experience in refrac- tive surgery, I am able to help patients who have been rejected elsewhere or suffered complications.

CRST: A True No-Touch Technique

TransPRK by SCHWIND (SCHWIND eyetech- solutions GmbH, Kleinostheim, Germany) is the only transepithelial singlestep treatment that avoids the eye coming into contact with any instrument. The clinical application of TransPRK, an advanced surface laser ablation (ASLA) treatment, uses the excimer laser to remove the epithelium, resulting in a more precise and more uniform treatment than what is achieved with either manual or alcohol-assisted debridement.

Who is at risk of glaucoma

In medicine, we are used to saying that prevention is the best cure, but unfortunately there are some diseases that are not preventable - that is why their early diagnosis is crucial. One of these is glaucoma, which causes damage to the optic nerve leading gradually to blindness.

"Excellent vision" is now a fact

Vision could be described as the most important of the five senses. However, genetic and environmental factors adversely affect it, resulting in the deterioration in someone's quality of life.

Excellent vision (that is, emmetropia) is therefore the issue in modern reality, as one's choices are often (professional, social and personal) determined by it.

Emmetropia: Medical tourism in practice

In Greece Medical tourism sounds like a foreign word. This is a sensible thing to do, since as a country only for our health system we cannot be proud. And yet in Crete an innovative medical center in collaboration with one of the largest hotel chains in our country, declares the start of the "game" of medical tourism.

We met with Dr. Ioannis Aslanides, former Medical Director of VEMMO (IVO) and the current scientific director of the Emmetropia Eye Center of Crete and we asked him about the prospects of a "different" tourism in Crete.

How the cataract is treated

The surgical cataract removal is the most common and successful intervention of modern surgical science. The complications are rare, but present, as in any operation. The factors that determine the occurrence of such complications are usually related to the specificity of the cataract (ultra-violent hard), to the coexistence of other ocular diseases (glaucoma, corneal, retinal, iridocyclitis) and cataract.

How the cataract is treated

The crystalline lens of the eye is located just behind the iris and the pupil and functions as the camera lens: it adjusts the focus of light to the retina, a membrane deep within the eye where all images are recorded, allowing us to see objects. clear both near and far distances. The cataract is the clouding of the crystalline lens and is the leading cause of reversible blindness worldwide.
