Comparison of retinal pigment epithelium-choroid graft surgery and anti-VEGF therapy in patients with wet AMD

This was a randomised intervention study in wet AMD patients to investigate benefits of free RPE-choroid graft transplantation surgery versus (continuation of) anti-VEGF treatment. Twenty patients who met the inclusion criteria were subdivided into three subgroups, i.e. RPE tears involving...

The management of chronic central serous chorioretinopathy

Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) is a common retinal disease characterised by one or more serous neurosensory detachments. Patients present with acute onset blurring of vision, metamorphopsia and / or central scotomas. The condition is six times more common in men...

Finasteride and central serous chorioretinopathy

The pathophysiology of central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) is complex and has not been fully elucidated. Suggested theories include hyperpermeability and increased hydrostatic pressure in the choroidal vasculature, which creates RPE detachments overwhelming the RPE barrier function, leading to accumulation of...

OCTA use in CNV associated with CSR

The aim of this study was to assess the rate of choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) in chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSR) patients with flat irregular pigment epithelial detachments (PEDs) by optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Data of all consecutive patients with...

Patients blinded by stem cells! How safe are they really?

Simerdip Kaur takes a look at the latest ophthalmology-related news stories and asks which are based on facts and which are ‘fake news’. Headline: Patients blinded by stem cells! How safe are they really? Ever since the successful results following...

A relationship between central serous retinopathy and obstructive sleep apnoea

This prospective study aimed to evaluate a relationship between central serous retinopathy (CSR) and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). Twenty-three subjects (six female and 17 male) were diagnosed with CSR and overnight polysonography was performed to record desaturation and apnoeic episodes....

Why is there subretinal fluid at the macula?

This is a review article looking at the differential diagnosis of subretinal fluid in the macula that could be diagnosed as central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR). The authors have categorised them into 12 groups: neovascular diseases, vitelliform lesions, inflammatory diseases, ocular...

Subthreshold micropulse laser treatment in chronic central serous chorioretinopathy

This retrospective study was conducted to assess the treatment of 38 patients of chronic central serous chorioretinopathy with a 577-nm subthreshold micropulse laser (SML) Supra Scan Quantel Medical. Eighteen patients of these had persistent subretinal fluid (SRF) after photodynamic therapy....
