Investigating MOG-IgG as a cause for optic perineuritis

Optic perineuritis can be a manifestation of infectious and systemic inflammatory disorders, but in most cases is considered idiopathic. Diagnosis is established by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with the demonstration of optic nerve sheath enhancement with sparing of the optic...

Examination of optic disc drusen using computer-based fundus analysis

This case-control study analysed the optic disc angioarchitecture in optic disc drusen (ODD) using computer-based fundus examination. A group of ODD patients were compared to a group of healthy controls with normal optic discs. The cohort included 30 healthy volunteers...

Glaucoma and capillary perfusion

Elevated IOP is important but not the sole factor responsible for retinal ganglion cell (RGC) death and optic nerve damage in glaucoma. There is increasing evidence that visual loss correlates with macular inner retinal thinning. A total of 148 eyes...

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...

Use of the RAPDx device to evaluate efficacy of treatment in patients with optic nerve disease

The RAPDx objectively determines the RAPD magnitude by alternately presenting light stimuli to each eye and deriving amplitude and latency scores. The authors of this paper evaluated the amplitude and latency scores from the RAPDx together with other ophthalmic investigations...

Histopathological changes in rabbit retinitis pigmentosa

The authors report the histopathological changes of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs), optic disc and optic nerve in rabbit with advanced retinitis pigmentosa (RP). RP was recreated in rabbits by using bacterial artificial chromosome transgenesis, with the purpose of increasing understanding...

Review of non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy

This article reviews the risk factors, clinical presentation and therapies that have been investigated for non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (NAAION). Additionally, it provides an update from recent rodent and primate models, offering a new insight into the pathophysiology of...

Use of RAPDx device with optic nerve disease

The authors have previously reported on use of the RAPDx device for evaluating relative afferent pupillary defects (RAPD). RAPDx objectively determines the magnitude of RAPD by presenting light stimuli alternately to pairs of eyes with laterality. The parameters of amplitude...

Optic nerve head perfusion response to reduced blood pressure and increased intraocular pressure

The purpose of this prospective study was to test the hypothesis that blood flow autoregulation in the optic nerve head has less reserve to maintain normal blood flow where there is a blood pressure induced decrease in ocular perfusion pressure...

Functional visual field loss using automated static perimetry

Functional visual field loss is traditionally assessed by kinetic perimetry, typically producing spiralling isopters. This study looked at the spatial distributions of functional field deficits using automated static perimetry. A retrospective review of automated perimetry records was conducted using a...

A rare case of post-traumatic central retinal artery occlusion

Central retinal artery occlusion is rarely associated with traumatic optic neuropathy, this case report details of one such case. The reported case is of a ten-year-old boy presenting after a fall from height with loss of vision in one eye....

Gender and ethnicity related differences in optic nerve head

The authors investigated the effect of ethnicity and gender on optic nerve head morphology comparing Indian and Caucasian males and females. The optic nerve head was investigated using spectral-domain optic coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Results showed that disc and rim areas...
