Retrograde maculopathy in glaucoma

Macular optical coherence tomography (OCT) analysis can be used for quantitative measures of optic nerve atrophy at a location far away from the optic nerve head. This has recently led to the discovery of microcystic macular oedema (MME), in the...

Retreatment of myopic LASIK with femtosecond and custom ablation

The purpose of this study was to identify the risk factors for retreatment post laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). A retrospective chart review was carried out for a four-year period and all patients who had undergone LASIK at the Boston...

RaScaL Study

The RaScaL study was a six month, single-centre, controlled, prospective phase I/II study in which subjects with diabetic macular oedema (DME) and associated peripheral nonperfusion on ultrawide-field fluorescein angiography (UWFA) were randomised to: (1) study arm: ranibizumab (0.5 mg) injection...

Changes in parafoveal retinal thickness after bariatric surgery in type 2 diabetics

Bariatric surgery induces an instant normalisation of blood glucose in as many as 80% of patients with type 2 diabetes. It has been previously reported that diabetic retinopathy (DR) is stable within one year after bariatric surgery. In this study,...

Prostaglandin levels in femto cataract surgery

Following previous reports of pupil size decrease after femtosecond treatment, the authors compare levels of prostaglandins in patients undergoing femtosecond assisted cataract surgery with those having routine cataract surgery. Patients with inflammatory eye disease, previous trauma surgery, age-related macular degeneration...

In vivo confocal microscopy, principles and use in keratitis Part 1: Principles

In 1968 Maurice introduced the concept of high powered specular microscopy, it was in that very year that the first scanning confocal microscope was proposed. Marvin Minsky developed the first confocal microscope in 1955 named the ‘double focusing scanning microscope’....
