This Foam Prevents Foggy Eyewear

Prevent eyewear or face shields from fogging up during procedures by applying Provision Anti-Fog Solution to the surfaces of the protective equipment and then wiping them clean with a soft cloth. The alcohol-free foam resists scratches, static and stains, says Palmero Health.


You Can Adjust This IOL After Cataract Surgery

Refractive errors that are common following cataract surgery can only be corrected with glasses, contact lenses or refractive surgery, but now there's an intraocular lens that lets you make small adjustments to its power after cataract surgery to improve vision in patients with astigmatism. RxSight's Light Adjustable Lens (RxLAL) lets the physician make small adjustments to the implanted lens after the initial surgery to improve visual acuity without glasses. The RxLAL is made of a material that reacts to UV light 17 to 21 days after surgery. Patients receive 3 or 4 in-office light treatments over a period of 1 to 2 weeks, each lasting about 40 to 150 seconds, depending on the amount of adjustment needed, says the company. Patients must wear eyeglasses for UV protection from the time of the cataract surgery to the end of the light treatments to protect the new lens from UV light.
