Menu - Part 2: Second List of Publications for Potential Posting

Advances in the Treatment of Glaucoma; Optistock Industry Overview, Fall 2001.

This article was published by as part of an Industry Overview. (The editors added an addendum on treatments for AMD.) My piece, on glaucoma, was a comprehensive overview of the then current thoughts on treatment of this significant disease.

Spotlight: Laser Phaco – An Overview; Optistock, Fall 2002.

I wrote this right after the first laser (the Dodick Laser Phacolysis System) was approved. I felt then, and still do, that laser phaco will never amount to a significant market presence.

Over the years, I have written several pieces on potential treatments for Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) that were published in Ocular Surgery News. Three of these are shown below:

Photodynamic Therapy for Macular Degeneration; Ocular Surgery News, December 15, 1994.

My first look at PDT therapy for AMD.

Laser Treatments for AMD Show Promise; Ocular Surgery News, January 15, 2000.

A look at the status of both PDT and other potential laser treatments for AMD.

Visudyne Looks Promising for Treating Wet AMD; Ocular Surgery News, January 15, 2001.

In this column, I questioned whether the use of Visudyne might break the Medicare bank.

Avastin: A New Hope for Treating AMD

This, as yet unpublished report, will be a contemporary look at the brand new potential drug treatment for AMD, based on the latest clinical results – and reports from analysts that follow the field.

In addition, I have also written about a new laser treatment for glaucoma:

SLT: New Treatment for Glaucoma Becomes Available; Ocular Surgery News, May 15, 2001.

In this column, I interviewed the inventor of the new laser treatment for glaucoma, selective laser trabecloplasty, and wrote about its application compared to argon laser trabeculoplasty, the then standard of care.
