Topography and longitudinal chromatic aberration characterizations of refractive–diffractive multifocal intraocular lenses. Loicq J, Willet N, Gatinel D. JCRS, 2019

The optical design of multifocal intraocular lenses uses concepts that are sometimes difficult to grasp, especially when it concerns diffractive technology and chromatic aberration control. We published an article (available here) that is based on the optical bench analysis of several models of multifocal diffractive implants to describe their main optical characteristics and report their […]

Challenging the « No Rub, No Cone » Keratoconus Conjecture. D Gatinel. Int J Kerat Ect Cor Dis. 2018;7(1):;66-81

This article aims to provide a comprehensive explanation for the physio pathogenesis of keratoconus and demonstrate why it is not corneal dystrophy of genetic origin, but primarily a warpage of the corneal dome of mechanical origin. Keratoconus is not a true ectasia. Rather, it results from the permanent corneal deformation caused by the buckling of […]

Comparison of the effect of LASIK parameters on the percent tissue altered (1-dimensional metric) versus percent volume altered (3-dimensional metric). Gatinel D, Saad A, Binder P. Journal of Cataract And Refract Surg, article in press (June 2018)

  Can purely axial metrics such as PTA (Percentage of Tissue Altered) predict with reasonable accuracy the ratios of tissue volumes implied in LASIK surgery? To our knowledge, the ratios between the volume of the cornea and that of the tissues involved in LASIK surgery have never been computed. This might allow clinicians to better […]

SMILE ou LASIK? J’opte pour le LASIK. en chirurgie réfractive de la myopie. D Gatinel, Réalités Ophtalmologiques, mars 2018.

Cet article contient les arguements développés lors d’une communication délivrée au congrès des JIFRO (Journées Interactives de Formation en Ophthalmologie) à Versailles, le jeudi 25 janvier 2018. Un point de controverse, SMILE ou LASIK pour la correction de la myopie, était débattu. Les arguments développés dans cette communication permettent d’étayer la supériorité du LASIK sur […]

Cataract Grading: Assessment of a New Objective Lens Density Quantification Method Using OCT Technology Integrated Into the IOLMaster 700 and Comparison with Existing Methods. Panthier C, Burgos J, Rouger H, Saad A, Gatinel D. Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, December 2017

The objective diagnosis of cataract is a major public health issue. Early cataract can be ambiguous on a slit lamp. With the Objective Scatter Index (OSI), the HD Analyzer provides an objective measurement of the crystalline lens opacity level by measuring ocular light scattering. However, in some instances, the light scatter can arise from other […]

The crosslinking controversy

I have just published a paper about in vivo corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL), and I believe it is certain to trigger some controversy.  It is not my intention to be a heretic, but I truly believe that we should re-examine the in vivo benefits of the CXL procedure for keraoconus management. This illustration depicts the […]
