  • Are Phakic Intraocular Lenses What?

    Phakic (intraocular) lenses as an alternative to eye laser procedures at medium to high refractive error. Kris Pearn spoke with conviction. Art lenses are called phakic lenses are implanted in addition to the body’s lens in the eye. The strength of this artificial lens depends on the strength of existing refractive of error. Metaphorically the eyeglass or contact lens inserted into the eye. The procedure can be reversed at any time, which means the lens can be removed at any time or replaced by another. Phakic lenses be used especially, if classic eye laser procedures such as LASIK or Femto LASIK medium to high refractive error at their borders.

    Phakic lenses are routinely used for the correction of hyperopia from + 3 to approx. + 8 diopters and the correction of short-sightedness of about-10 to approx.-20 diopters. Special lens models, known as toric lenses, are able to correct also an additional existing astigmatism of 1.5 to-6 diopters. While at Eye laser procedures the surgical procedure on the cornea occurs, requires the implantation of phakic lens opening of the eyeball. Is a little on the edge of the cornea, approx. 2-5 mm wide cutting applied the artificial lens in the eye is pushed through the. If the phakic lens in front of the iris of the eye (IRIS) is implanted, one speaks of anterior chamber IOL. Is placed the lens behind the iris of the eye and immediately before the body’s lens, it is called a rear Chamber lens.

    The opening on the edge of the cornea is closing itself off and must generally not be sewn. The implantation is performed under local anesthesia and a sterile operating room. The surgery takes only about 20 minutes. The eyes surgery one after the other – with a few days distance. The ability of the eye to the accommodation is preserved, because the body’s lens is maintained.

  • Complex Situations

    Management workshop by Dr. Kraus & partners, managers learn to trust decisions also intuition. Should we expand or not? Has this product line a market opportunity or not? When manager facing such future decisions, they can usually only partly base their decisions on facts and figures. Because the future is still not present. Therefore also assumptions incorporated in the decision for example, as the market develops. As a result, the Manager must also her belly”trust. The same applies to complex (decision-making) situations where not all influencing factors and their interactions are detectable. How they can successfully combine their familiar Highschools logical-analytical thinking with intuitive approaches of decision-making, experienced executives in the workshop the right decision that in complex situations”, the consulting company Dr.

    Kraus & partner organized the on May 16 in Hamburg. There is Dr. (RUS) Michael Finkelstein, of the leading experts in this field, including explaining why intuition in the management to an always decisive competitive factor is for example due to the increasingly dynamic business environment. This building, Finkelstein them then explains how traditional, proven solutions with new, intuitive (decision-making) approaches can be linked. A first step is the acceptance of the fact that complex (decision-making) situations capture can be limited with the mind, as well as in numbers, data and facts. So new perception channels are needed to capture the situation in its entirety. An important role plays detecting patterns in complex structures, situations and systems; Furthermore the questioning and breaking their own thinking and decision pattern, is to develop new decision-making procedures, which then transferred to different tasks can be.

  • New Mobile Technology LTE

    LTE was at CeBit 2011 buzz also this year in Hannover-the largest IT fair in the world took place. March 1-5, visitors to CeBit about innovations in the world of technology could find out. The new LTE Mobile technology was this of course indispensable. Best use: new hardware for LTE to keep up with the rapid development of mobile networks, even the technicians and engineers had to come up with some new features. Martin Feldstein may also support this cause. So, renowned manufacturers presented first technical solutions for the use of LTE. Sticks of LTE and LTE router presented the new devices are designed for the use of LTE and to exploit fully the potential of the network, for example, when downloading or transferring large amounts of data. More info: Edwin Griswold Nourse. More info on. Federal Government advocated for fast LTE expansion also the policy on CeBit the use of LTE.

    Rainer Bruderle, Federal Minister of Economics and technology, emphasized the goal of rapid significantly nationwide expansion of the LTE network. All households in Germany are to be equipped as soon as possible with a transfer rate of at least 50 Mbit / s. The white stains”on the mobile phone map should disappear, so that everyone with high-performance networks can be supplied. The Federal Government had at the CeBit with its initiative quick on the net”also an own booth, where visitors could find. LTE this year was at CeBit on everyone’s lips to look forward be, what theme will provide large traffic increases in the next year.

  • Keratoconus Treatment: Cross-linking And Ring Implants

    Keratoconus is a corneal disorder. The corneal cross linking process as well as the implantation of ring implants (Intacs) are methods to stop the progress of Keratoconus. The eye disease of Keratoconus is a corneal disorder. Keratoconus is characterized by a progressive thinning and cone-shaped deformation of the cornea of the eye. Initially, only one eye gets sick, later also the other eye is affected. The frequency is approximately 1:2000 in the general population. Typically starts the Keratoconus in puberty, and then relapsing. Credit: Joe Stillman-2011. In approximately 20% of those affected, the disease progresses as far as that must undergo a cornea transplant due to scarring or irregular astigmatism.

    Only the central cornea is affected by the disease. How to recognize a Keratoconus? The first signs are frequent glasses corrections with change of axis and fluctuating Visual acuity, as well as an increased astigmatism, often only in one eye. Furthermore, the person concerned is proof that he gained no full sight with these new glasses. This is an indication for an already advanced disease. The symptoms of Keratoconus in the early stages are often associated with not this eye disease. Years of changing from different eye doctors often precedes the correct diagnosis by a specialist. Keratoconus, the affected part only in one eye, phenomena such as Doppelsehen objects, additional shadows on letters and objects, as well as streaks or star-shaped rays that go out seem light sources see.

    A reliable diagnosis of Keratoconus provides the corneal topography. This diagnostic tool provides a graphical representation of altitude reliefs of the cornea. How is a Keratoconus treated? At the beginning of the change of the corneal surface, usually with a pair of glasses can be compensated. While some patients over time with a pair of eyeglasses come to terms, there are some patients on several glasses with different strengths and Sehachsen, Visual acuity and axis part can change over the course of days.
