Knobby eye syndrome

This study used high resolution MRI to demonstrate and evaluate globe shape in axial high myopia and identify and characterise those with prominent equatorial staphylomata that deflect extraocular muscle paths and presumably alter motility patterns in strabismus. The study included...

Imaging requests for CNP

The authors sought to answer the question of to what extent do differences in policy exist between ophthalmologists and neurologists regarding imaging by MRI of patients with acquired ocular cranial nerve palsy (CNP). They conducted a literature review leading to...

Radiologic characteristics of cavernous venous malformations

This study is a retrospective review of cases with a preoperative radiologic diagnosis of cavernous venous malformations (CVMs) over 30 years. The aim of this study was to define imaging characteristics of CVMs, which will help differentiate these lesions from...

Stromal cell alignment in damaged cornea

Stromal keratocytes are responsible for wound healing in the cornea following damage. Keratocytes at the site of injury become activated and differentiate to myofibroblasts which secrete extracellular matrix (ECM) to close the wound, a response mediated by transforming growth factor...

Automated Bruckner device accuracy

The authors developed a Bruckner device, examined volunteers and determined the relation between the luminance of the red fundus reflex and eye rotation. Eye rotation was varied continuously both horizontally (-7 to 8 degrees) and vertically (five degree total range)...

A rare case of ophthalmic complications following allergic fungal sinusitis

The authors present an unusual case report of a 32-year-old man with advanced allergic fungal sinusitis, presenting with severe bilateral visual loss and restricted ocular motility. On presentation he had an 18 month history of progressive nasal obstruction, as well...

Comparison of central laminar thickness in optic neuropathy and normal eyes

The study compares central laminar thickness (LT) among patients with glaucomatous optic neuropathy (GON), patients with non-GON and normal subjects. The non-GON group comprised eyes with demyelinating optic neuropathy (ON), anterior ischaemic ON, compressive ON, Leber hereditary ON and traumatic...

Positive diagnosis of acute posterior ischaemic optic nerve neuropathy

Posterior ischaemic optic neuropathy is a rare cause of visual loss believed to be due to infarction in the territory of the pial branches of the ophthalmic artery. There is an absence of clinical signs which means the diagnosis is...

A case of progressive supranuclear palsy-like syndrome following aortic aneurysm repair

This original article illustrates the case of an 18-year-old woman who developed progressive supranuclear palsy-like syndrome following an uneventful aortic aneurysm repair. The patient was unaffected for the first 48 hours after surgery and then developed dysarthria, dysphagia (requiring a...

Choroidal and macular thickness in nonarteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy

This study evaluates the choroidal and macular thickness in patients with chronic nonarteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (NA-AION). Two groups of subjects were compared, group one included 20 eyes with chronic NA-AION and group two, 31 healthy control eyes. The...

Choroidal thickness in ocular sarcoidosis by OCT measurement

This is the first study to evaluate the choroidal thickness in patients with ocular sarcoidosis during the quiescent phase using enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT) and comparing with normal subjects. Ocular sarcoidosis may affect the choroidal circulation (occlusive...
