Tumour deposits following choroidal melanoma treatment

The authors present the unique case of retinoinvasive melanoma following treatment of choroidal melanoma with brachytherapy. Uveal melanoma, the commonest intraocular malignancy in adults, presents as a pigmented mass in the choroid, ciliary body, or iris. A 79-year-old Caucasian male...

Caffeine concentration in the vitreous after drinking coffee

Caffeine is known to penetrate many bodily fluids, including the vitreous. In this prospective study, investigators measured caffeine levels in vitreous samples from patients undergoing vitrectomy and epiretinal membrane peel. Patients were divided into habitual and non-habitual coffee drinkers. One...

Effect of blue-light filtering intraocular lenses on age-related macular degeneration

This is a retrospective cohort study evaluating whether blue-light filtering (BLF) intraocular lenses (IOL) offer prophylaxis for neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD). The study included 11,397 eyes of 11,397 patients with a mean age of 75.4 ±8.3 years that underwent...

Restoration of colour perception in patients with retinitis pigmentosa

This is a case series testing the feasibility of using bioelectronic retinal prostheses to partially restore colour perception in seven patients with advanced retinitis pigmentosa. Bioelectronic retinal prostheses are able to bypass degenerated photoreceptors to directly stimulate the inner retinal...

Rebound phenomenon after IVT triamcinolone acetonide for macular oedema

In this retrospective study, the authors report the rebound phenomenon after intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide (IVTA) injection for macular oedema secondary to diabetic retinopathy (DR) and central (CRVO) or branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). The incidence of a rebound phenomenon was...

Endo-illumination-aided SB combined with IVT hyaluronate for RRD

The authors report a retrospective non-randomised control trial that evaluated the efficacy and safety of 25-gauge illumination-aided scleral buckling (SB) combined with hyaluronate injection for the treatment of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). Forty-five cases were included in this study. Twenty-five...

OCT choroidal signs for congenital retinal pigment epithelium hypertrophy

Congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium (CHRPE) on ocular coherence tomography (OCT) has the characteristic sign of RPE thickening and hyper reflectivity. However, the underlying choroid characteristics remain under researched. This retrospective study utilised data from an ophthalmic oncology...

Microvasculature changes of mCNV after ranibizumab treatment using OCTA

In this study the authors aim to evaluate the vascular changes of myopic choroidal neovascularisation (mCNV) after ranibizumab treatment using optical coherence tomography-angiography (OCTA). The 3×3 OCTA en face images were analysed for the absence / presence of mCNV, CNV...

Retinal vascular occlusion from gentamicin injection post-vitrectomy

The authors present two case reports for the rare, but serious, complication of retinal vascular occlusion as a presumed result of subconjunctival injection following 25-gauge vitrectomy. Risk factors for the complication include: cardiovascular disease, retrobulbar anaesthesia, high intraocular pressure (IOP)...

Longitudinal changes in axial length in high myopia

This is a prospective, longitudinal, observational single centre study between May 2011 and September 2018, to determine the changes in the axial length (AL) longitudinally in patients with high myopia without other conformational abnormalities. Patients were divided into two groups:...

Is optic disc drusen a risk factor in young patients with anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy?

This retrospective cross-section multicentre study reviewed 65 patients all younger than 50-years-old with non-arteritic anterior optic neuropathy (NA-AION) between April 2017 and March 2019. The purpose of this study was to investigate if there was a link between Optic Disc...

OCT angiography sign after whiplash

Berlin’s oedema is a rare condition following blunt ocular injury and a rare finding after whiplash injury. This case describes a 48-year-old male who suffered a seventh vertebrae fracture from a traffic accident. Two days later, decreased left eye visual...
