In my last post, I wrote about a number of innovative accommodating IOLs that are in the pipeline for the treatment of cataracts and presbyopia.

The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) estimates that as many as 50 million Americans will suffer from vision-impairing cataracts by the year 2050.

Written by David Evans, PhD, MBA   Last modified on November 16, 2017

In August of last year I wrote an article about how refractive surgery was helping improve our military, a subject that hits very close to home for me as a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy and ocular physiology PhD. (I think it’s an interesting read and urge you to check it out […]

The 2017 NFL season is well under way, and as a native son of the Who Dat Nation (ie New Orleans Saints), it’s fair to say that I’m still waiting on our boys to hit stride this season after a 2-2 start. (I was particularly excited to see what the Adrian Peterson addition would yield […]

Dude, Where’s My Contact Lens?

Written by David Evans, PhD, MBA   Last modified on September 28, 2017

I’ve worn disposable contact lenses for nearly 35 years, during which time I’ve had my share of minor problems. Accidentally falling asleep before removing them, losing one or having trouble getting one in place, forgetting to pack solution before a trip, etc. If you wear contacts, you’re undoubtedly familiar with some of these common issues.

I’m sitting down to write this blog after reading the news about Senator John McCain’s unfortunate announcement that he’s been diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor.
