Dr Raymond Stein was invited to speak on the Catalys Precision Laser System at the American Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgery in San Francisco on April 18, 2013.

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

Dr Stein presented his experience with the Catalys Precision Laser System to over 500 ophthalmologists from around the world at the Mascone convention centre in San Francisco. He spoke on the learning curve of introducing the technology and the safety profile. In reviewing all the technologies he has introduced at the Bochner Eye Institute over the past 20 years the Catalys laser had the easiest learning curve. In the first 40 cases treated, 32 were performed without ultrasound. By reducing or eliminating ultrasound energy there is less intraocular inflammation, and less chance of adversely affecting the corneal endothelium or leading to cystoid macular edema.

Dr Stein noted that Laser cataract surgery has significant clinical advantages especially in patients with Fuchs corneal dystrophy, shallow anterior chambers, dense nuclear cataracts, and weak zonules such as in pseudoexfoliation. In addition by performing an exact capsulotomy of 5 mm there is less chance that the implant will vault forward, be pushed posteriorly, or be tilted. This can result in an improved refractive outcome and quality of vision.

Dr. Raymond Stein Speaks at ASCRS

Thursday, April 7th, 2011

Dr. Raymond Stein was an invited guest speaker to the annual meeting of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) in San Diego on March 28, 2011. He presented the results from the Bochner Eye Institute of Corneal Collagen Crosslinking with up to 3.5 years of follow-up. None of the treated patients have shown any progressive ectasia. Crosslinking has been shown to be a major advance in the treatment of keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, and ectasia after refractive surgery. The surgeons at the Bochner Eye Institute have been pioneers with this technology in North America. To learn more about Raymond Stein, MD, & Bochner Eye Institute, please call (416) 960-2020.
