BT for retinal detachment strabismus (2020)

The authors report updated experience on factors influencing botulinum toxin (BT) outcomes for strabismus following retinal detachment surgery. This was a retrospective review of 32 patients with follow-up of 20 months (1-132). Mean age at BT injection was 44 years...

Retinal traction during ERM peeling

This prospective study aimed to quantify the retinal thickening induced by epiretinal membrane (ERM) peeling and to correlate this thickening with postoperative retinal function. Twenty-five patients who required surgery for idiopathic ERM were included in the study. The authors performed...

Visual outcomes after surgery for primary RRD in era of microincision vitrectomy

This is a prospective, multicentre, nationwide study between 2016 and 2017, to investigate the preoperative ocular factors, surgical techniques (pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) or scleral buckling (SB), or combined procedures) for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) and postoperative best corrected visual...

Risk factors and prognosis of paediatric open globe injuries

This retrospective, comparative, interventional case-control study was aimed to investigate possible risk factors and prognosis of initial no light perception (NLP) in paediatric open globe injuries (POGI). A total of 851 cases were reviewed, including 837 unilateral cases and 14...

Effects of ‘inverted U method’ Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy on anterior segment and IOL tilt

The study aimed to investigate the effects of the ‘inverted U method’ Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy on anterior segment parameters, decentration and tilt of intraocular lens (IOLs) and visual acuity in 76 patients with posterior capsular opacification (PCO) after previous...

Association of pendular waveform and retinal disorders

The authors aimed to evaluate the relationship between retinal disorders and pendular low amplitude high frequency components (PLAHF) waveform by collecting nystagmus eye movement recordings, electroretinography (ERG) and gene tests. Retinal disorders were diagnosed by clinical phenotype and genotype characteristics....

Visual outcomes after surgery for primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment in era of microincision vitrectomy

This is a prospective, multicentre, nationwide study between 2016 and 2017, to investigate the preoperative ocular factors, surgical techniques (pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) or scleral buckling (SB), or combined procedures) for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) and postoperative best corrected visual...

The effects of anti-VEGF therapy for NvAMD on retinal vasculature

This retrospective consecutive case series examined 54 eyes of 54 treatment-naïve neovascular age-related macular degeneration (N-AMD) patients. Thirty-three eyes received intravitreal aflibercept injections, and 21 eyes received intravitreal ranibizumab injections with unaffected fellow eyes (54 eyes) as controls. All image...

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...

Relationship between intraocular pressure and optic nerve damage in optic nerve drusen

The authors present a retrospective study exploring the relationship between intraocular pressure (IOP) and optic nerve damage in patients with optic nerve drusen. The aim was to evaluate if patients with normal ocular pressure at the time of optic nerve...

Relating metamorphopsia severity and OCT findings in advanced epiretinal membranes

The authors present the findings of a retrospective study to correlate metamorphopsia and ectopic inner foveal layers (EIFL) or ‘central bouquet’ abnormality (CBA) in patients with advanced stages of epiretinal membrane (ERM) following the new OCT‐based grading scheme as described...

Caffeine concentration in the vitreous after drinking coffee

Caffeine is known to penetrate many bodily fluids, including the vitreous. In this prospective study, investigators measured caffeine levels in vitreous samples from patients undergoing vitrectomy and epiretinal membrane peel. Patients were divided into habitual and non-habitual coffee drinkers. One...
