Modification of surgery to reduce consecutive ET

Surgical treatment for recurrent exotropia (ET) predominantly depends on the primary surgery. Modification of surgical dose may be required in secondary procedures. The aim of this study was to compare surgical outcomes of modified and conventional secondary surgery using lateral...

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...

Globes in space: What would happen to our globes on the globe of Mars?

Many films have been made regarding life on alternative planets. With the Mars One mission approaching in 2023, there are high expectations regarding future interplanetary travel. The authors provide an ophthalmology perspective on what could happen to our eyes if...

Outcomes of hemi DMEK

This was a prospective, interventional case series of 10 eyes from 10 patients who underwent hemi-descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (hemi-DMEK) for Fuchs endothelial dystrophy. The surgical technique for hemi DMEK procedure was similar to the circular DMEK except that a...

The medical student syndrome

It is often said that “a little learning is a dangerous thing,” but being super savvy can’t put us at the brink of harm, can it? Each year as thousands of students commence their medical degrees, they begin a journey...

E-Dobson card for visual acuity

The authors assessed the utility of an electronic Dobson acuity card which can be altered for spatial frequency. Thirty-six infants and toddlers aged 5-36.7 months were recruited – equal females and males. Fourteen had high refractive error. The card is...

Three methods of suppression measurement

Test-retest reliability and interchangeability are evaluated for three filter bars available to measure density of suppression: Sbisa bar, Bagolini filter (BF) bar and neutral density filter (NDF) bar. The study involved 10 strabismic adults. Testing conditions were altered and effects...

Cataract surgery and circadian photoentrainment

The study authors sought to investigate the possible effects of circadian photoentrainment following cataract. This was a randomised clinical trial, where 76 eyes of 76 patients (with bilateral cataract) were randomised to blue-blocking or neutral intraocular lenses (IOLs). Outcome measures...

A case series of acute visual loss following excessive alcohol and / or drug use

This study presents three cases of so called Saturday night retinopathy, an acute visual loss following intravenous drug abuse and stupor, leading to continuous pressure on the orbit while asleep. All three cases presented with acute vision loss and had...

Resolution of mid-peripheral schisis in x-linked retinoschisis with the use of dorzolamide

X-linked retinoschisis (XLRS) is an early onset hereditary retinal dystrophy. It is caused by mutations of the RS1 gene. Common manifestations of XLRS are schitic lesions at the macula, as well as infero-temporal schisis. Carbonic anhydrase inhibitors have previously been...

Reduced angle after BT for postop diplopia test

The authors undertook a retrospective study to evaluate the extent of reduced deviation after Botulinum toxin (BT) when used as a postoperative diplopia test. They evaluated effect in 39 patients: 32 exotropia and seven esotropia. The same BT dose was...
