A Deep Dive on the Connection Between Osmolarity and Keratometry in Cataract Surgery Patients

  Channels: General | Posted 3/4/2020

This latest episode of On the Surface starts out with Laura Periman, MD, asking Alice Epitropoulos, MD, FACS, to discuss the research behind a 2015 paper that she was lead author on that addressed the effect of tear osmolarity on repeatability of keratometry for cataract surgery planning. The two then move on to talk about other studies that examined Schirmer scores, osmolarity, and corneal sensation in cataract surgery patients before Dr. Epitropoulos concludes with her key takeaways from these studies.
