Partial recession surgery for small angle vertical strabismus

The objective of this study was to assess the results of partial recessions of the vertical rectus muscles in patients with diplopia and small angle vertical strabismus. This was a retrospective study of partial temporal or nasal recession from one...

Efficacy and safety of novel PF brimonidine / timolol fixed-combination ophthalmic solution for OAG

This study is a multicentre, randomised, open-label, parallel-group clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a newly developed preservative-free (PF) brimonidine / timolol fixed-combination (BTFC) ophthalmic solutions as compared with preservative-containing (PC) BTFC ophthalmic solution in adult patients...

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...

Van Herick Plus

This a consecutive cross-sectional study of 95 phakic patients over the age of 40-years-old. By applying a short, vertical slit beam, the inferior angle at the scleral-limbal junction at 6 o’clock position was evaluated, photographed and assessed by a ratio...

Mono vs. multi-therapy in IOP control

This randomised control trial studied newly diagnosed glaucoma patients given mono‐ or multi‐therapy regarding differences in initial intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction, target IOP levels reached and influence of untreated baseline IOP on IOP reduction. Patients newly diagnosed with manifest primary...

Importance of visual fields for detection of progression in glaucoma

Early detection of progression of glaucoma, and escalating treatment is vital to maintain vision in patients. In this paper from the Early Manifest Glaucoma Trial (EMGT) group they compared the earliest detection of progression in visual fields and monoscopic optic...

Predictors of IOP reduction after SLT

The aim of this study was to identify predictors of intraocular pressure reduction following selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma, who are already taking maximally tolerated IOP-lowering medication and need further IOP reduction. In this prospective...

Advanced vestibular Schwannoma case report

Vestibular Schwannoma is a benign, slow growing tumour which usually presents with unilateral hearing loss. It causes symptoms and findings on ophthalmic examination when the diagnosis is delayed. Ophthalmic findings may be related to the effect of the expanding mass...

Changes in Japanese eyes after laser peripheral iridotomy

The aim of this study was to evaluate laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI) induced changes in anterior segment parameters, using the anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT). Seventy-two subjects of Japanese ethnicity with primary angle closure suspect (PACS), primary angle closure...

Static subjective visual vertical (SVV) in the normal visual system

Graviception is the perception of a persons’ orientation relative to gravitational force. This can be measured by means of subjective verticals, which can be divided into three tests: subjective visual vertical (SVV), subjective postural vertical (SPV) and subjective haptic vertical...

Update on primary angle closure glaucoma

This review article considers primary angle-closure glaucoma which is responsible for half of glaucoma-related blindness worldwide. Angle closure is characterised by appositional contact between the iris and trabecular meshwork. It tends to develop in eyes with shallow anterior chambers, anteriorly...

Risk factors for NTG in a young Korean population

Previously known ocular and systemic risk factors for normal tension glaucoma (NTG) include myopia, peripapillary atrophy, disc haemorrhage, migraine, obstructive sleep apnoea, thyroid disease and cerebral infarction. However, most NTG risk factor studies have examined patients aged 40 years and...
