Have you ever wondered how we can reconstruct a normal pupil for patients with ICE and issues with glare? This educational video demonstrates tips and tricks used during a complex anterior segment reconstruction in a patient with ICE Syndrome, a Baerveldt Tube, corneal decompensation, a cataract and almost total iris loss. I perform a cataract extraction, intra-ocular lens insertion, Human Optics custom made artificial iris implantation into the capsular bag (customised to match the other eye) and a Descemet's Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty.
Patients with keratoconus and other types of corneal ectasia will finally get some long overdue financial relief for collagen cross linking. As of the 1st of May 2018 there will be a medicare rebate for cross linking.
More details will be released soon but this will be a great relief for patients and their families.

Dr Cronin has recently added the brilliant Optos Optomap imaging to the suite of world class diagnostic equipment at the Queensland Eye Institute. This world leading technology allows a view of the peripheral retina without dilating a patients' pupils. This will make many ophthalmology appointments much easier for patients to attend as they will be able to drive home without blurred vision from drops.
