This paper describes a case report of an extra-large V pattern measuring >60PD and the surgery required to collapse the pattern. The patient was a female aged 20 years. Angle measurements were 70PD at distance and 75PD at near in...

Transient macular thinning with Densiron 68

Densiron 68 is a heavy silicone oil (HSO) used to treat rhegmatogenous retinal detachments (RRD) with inferior retinal breaks. The authors compared changes in retinal thickness during and after the use of Densiron endotamponade, and looked at any association between...

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...

Subconjunctival anaesthesia in vitreoretinal surgery

The authors present a technique that combines topical and subconjunctival anaesthesia for vitreoretinal surgery. In this ‘two-step’ procedure, three drops of proparacaine were applied to the conjunctival fornix, followed by subconjunctival lidocaine injected in three quadrants. This was compared with...

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...

OCTA in geographic atrophy

In this article the authors aim to give an overview of the current literature concerning the application of OCT-A in geographic atrophy (GA). GA is a disease characterised by loss of outer retinal layers including photoreceptors, degeneration of the retinal...
