November 2017 Research Update

Research and Education


Welcome to the November Research Update, authored by Dr Amy Sheppard and Prof James Wolffsohn from the School of Life and Health Sciences at Aston University. The update will keep you informed regarding the latest research findings relevant to eye care professionals published during the last month. In the leading journals this month, the efficacy of Manuka honey products in the treatment of meibomian gland dysfunction is reported, new research indicates that first eye cataract surgery can reduce falls risk significantly, and patient-reported outcomes of monovision LASIK and refractive lens exchange for presbyopia are compared. We hope you enjoy the update, and return next month to read the December edition!
