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...

AI breakthrough brings geographic atrophy treatment a step closer

A team led by Dr Konstantinos Balaskas at Moorfields Eye Hospital Reading Centre has developed a fully automated, deep-learning model (algorithm) that can detect and quantify geographic atrophy using standard optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans.

Eye scans detect signs of Parkinson’s disease up to seven years before diagnosis

A team led by Siegfried Wagner and Pearse Keane of Moorfields Eye Hospital and UCL Institute of Ophthalmology (and spanning UCL institutions) has identified markers that indicate the presence of Parkinson’s disease in patients on average seven years before clinical presentation.

A new observation point: updating the nomenclature and classification with OCT

The evolution of ophthalmic imaging technologies has been particularly rapid over the last few years. The author provides an update of the current terms for common signs and pathologies observed using optical coherence tomography. My experience as an ophthalmic technician,...

Atlas Optical Coherence Tomography of Macular Diseases and Glaucoma

The book is divided into three sections: an introduction to optical coherence tomography (OCT), the OCT in macular diseases, and glaucoma. The first section lists the currently commercially available OCT machines, then describes the techniques for acquiring OCT images using...

Understanding spaceflight-associated neuro-ocular syndrome (SANS): what do we know?

Introduction Formerly known as visual impairment and intracranial pressure syndrome (VIIP), space-related neuro-ocular syndrome (SANS) is defined by a collection of ophthalmic and neurological findings in astronauts after long-term spaceflight [1]. Changes in the eyeball, such as hyperopic shift, during...

Optical coherence tomography in patients exposed to vigabatrin

Vigabatrin is used to treat epilepsy and can lead to increased levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain and in the retina leading to binasal visual field defects. Although not the first line of treatment for adults it is...

DRIL after macular oedema treatment in BRVO

The authors report the analysis of a single-site, retrospective, cross-sectional study to evaluate the association between disorganisation of the retinal inner layers (DRIL) and visual acuity (VA) after anti-VEGF treatment for macular oedema (MO) due to branch retinal vein occlusion...

Optical Coherence Tomography: A Clinical and Technical Update

This book is a comprehensive review of the clinical and scientific aspects of optical coherence tomography (OCT). The 255 pages are divided into 11 chapters, each written by a different group of authors. Part I provides viewpoints on the clinical...

ESASO Course Series Vol. 4 Optical Coherence Tomography

This book, which is the latest volume from the European School for Advanced Studies in Ophthalmology (ESASO) course series, is a revelation and joy to review. This compact volume provides an introduction and an update to the most recent technological...

Combined ranibizumab and ablative therapy for Coat’s disease

The aim of this study was to observe the efficacy of intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) combined with laser photocoagulation or cryotherapy, for Coats’ disease. Patients younger than 16 years of age who were diagnosed with Coats’ disease were included in this...
