Survey of parental experience of contact lens support

In this study, the service under evaluation is for paediatric aphakia patients. Soft contact lenses (CLs) are inserted at the time of surgery and remain in-situ for the immediate postoperative period. The aim is for families to undertake daily CLs...

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...

Effect of long-term scleral contact lenses on corneal topography, tear film and impression cytology in keratoconus

This study of 16 keratoconus patients aimed to investigate the impact of long-term scleral contact lens (ScCL) wear on corneal curvature, corneal thickness, tear film function and ocular surface in patients with keratoconus. Corneal topography, tear osmolarity test, Schirmer 1...

Clinical outcomes of a supplementary sulcus IOL

In this retrospective study, the authors examined 31 eyes of 20 patients who had received a supplementary trifocal sulcus IOL in addition to a ‘bag-in-the-lens’ IOL. Implantation of a ‘bag-in-the-lens’ IOL requires the creation of anterior and posterior capsulotomies, followed...

Suture-less flanged IOL fixation vs. conventional sutured SF in IOL dislocation

The authors report the analysis of a prospective, comparative cohort study on 103 consecutive patients (103 eyes) with intraocular lens (IOL) dislocation who underwent vitrectomy with IOL removal and sutured scleral fixation (SF) (53 eyes) or flanged IOL fixation (50...

Visual and refractive outcomes and complications in FLACS versus CPS cataract surgery

This is a randomised, controlled study of 110 paired eyes from 55 patients that were randomised into either femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) or conventional phacoemulsification cataract surgery (CPS) groups. Visual, refractive outcomes, intraocular pressure (IOP) and complications were compared...

Uveitis‐Glaucoma‐Hyphaemia syndrome retrospective case-control study

The authors present the findings of a case-control study aiming to assess uveitis‐glaucoma‐hyphaemia (UGH) syndrome, focusing on the resolution, glaucoma development and risk factors. The authors compared three groups each containing 71 patients. Each group contained patients with UGH syndrome,...

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...

Review of pathogenesis of Acanthamoeba keratitis

In this review, the author summarised the current microbiomic and immunological evidence related to the pathogenesis of Acanthamoeba keratitis (AK). AK has been described for almost 50 years, but the exact biology of the disease remains perplexing. Acanthamoeba spp. are...

Long-term outcome of scleral-sutured posterior chamber intraocular lens

This is a retrospective review of 392 consecutive cases in 349 patients who had scleral-sutured intraocular lens (IOL) due to aphakia, subluxated or luxated IOL, over a 10-year period in one centre from Barcelona. Preop and postop data were collected...

Accuracy of intraocular lens power calculations in paediatric eyes

A study comparing the accuracy of the SRK II, SRK/T, Hoffer Q, Holladay 1, T2 and Super formula in predictive refractive outcomes in children undergoing primary IOL insertion into the capsular bag following cataract surgery. A total of 377 eyes...

Visual outcome and surgical results in children with Marfan Syndrome

Eighty-two eyes of 41 patients with a genetically proven diagnosis of Marfan syndrome were retrospectively analysed. Twenty-seven had bilateral subluxation and 14 received lensectomy. Follow-up was three years. Mean visual acuity (VA) was 0.1 ±0.7 logMAR in patients with normal...
