Management of ocular surface disease

This is a retrospective study of patients with ocular surface disease (OSIDs) treated with IKERVIS in a single centre between 2016 to 2019 with at least six months follow-up. Clinical outcome was defined as successful (resolved or stable disease), active...

Human leucocyte antigen association of patients with Stevens-Johnson syndrome in Han Chinese

This is a retrospective study of the human leucocyte antigen (HLA) polymorphism pattern of cold medicine-induced patients with Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis (SJS/TEN) (n=33) and 98 control patients recruited between 2016-2017 in Taiwan. Severe ocular complications (SOC) was...

Lamellar patch grafts utilising cornea remnants from DMEK/PKP

The authors retrospectively reviewed 23 lamellar patch grafts performed over a six-year period for tectonic indications in corneal thinning and perforations. The anterior stroma of corneal endothelium peeled for descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) were used to prepare circular lamellar...

Incidence, microbiological profile and in vitro antimicrobial susceptibility of IK

This is a retrospective single centre study of all patients (with corneal scraping) including their demographic factors, microbiological profiles, and in vitro antibiotic susceptibility of infectious keratitis (IK), studied between 2007 and 2019. The incidence of IK was 34.7/100,000 people...

Effect of long-term RGP-CL wear on keratoconus progression

This is a retrospective study between April and December 2017, of 22 rigid gas-permeable contact lens (RGP-CL) patients (31 eyes) and 15 non-CL patients (20 eyes) who fulfilled the criteria of: 1) >3 years follow-up and 2) Scheimpflug-based corneal imaging...

Cell injection therapy for endothelial failure

This is a prospective observational study involving 11 eyes of 11 patients with pseudophakic endothelial failure who underwent human corneal endothelial cell culture (hCEC) injection therapy for endothelial failure. This study aimed to evaluate the long-term five-year postoperative data for...

Comparison of changes in ECD and CCT between CPS and FLACS

This is an intraindividual randomised clinical trial of 134 eyes from 67 patients, one eye was treated with femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) (including pretreatment of main incision, side port, capsulotomy and lens fragmentation) and the fellow eye received conventional...

Microbiology, risk factors and outcomes of microbial keratitis in Sydney, Australia

The authors present a retrospective case series including all patients with microbial keratitis and ocular surface diseases (OSD), including dry eye, blepharitis, Stevens-Johnson syndrome and / or ocular cicatricial pemphigoid, over a five-year period between 2012 and 2016. A total...

Ocular manifestation of Marfan Syndrome

This repeated cross-sectional study collected data in 2003-2004 and 2014-2015 to investigate changes in ocular features in Marfan syndrome (MFS) fulfilling the Ghent-2 criteria. Ghent-2 is a set of criteria by which MFS are identified and includes aortic root aneurysm...

Temporal versus nasal clear corneal incisions

This is a prospective randomised study of 100 patients’ left eye having undergone phacoemulsification either by a 2.4mm nasal clear corneal incision (CCI) group or temporal CCI group. The corneal astigmatic changes were compared between groups by power vector analysis,...

Corneal suture sample evaluation

This is a prospective study of 35 patients’ suture samples taken from a tertiary cornea clinic, Miami, Florida, with a history of penetrating keratoplasty. The aim is to study the relationship between corneal suture bacteriology, biofilm and the clinical setting,...

Differences in elastometry of cornea and optic nerve head in both eyes of patients with NAION

Non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (NAION) is an important cause of visual loss in the middle aged and elderly population. This prospective cross-sectional study investigates the biomechanical properties of optic nerve head (ONH) and cornea in both eyes of patients...
