This book is suitable for all doctors, particularly ophthalmologists, who want to further their knowledge and understanding of retinal pathologies and keep up to date. The case-based format is effective in evoking an interactive approach to differential diagnosis. The tabulation...

Use of RAPDx device with optic nerve disease

The authors have previously reported on use of the RAPDx device for evaluating relative afferent pupillary defects (RAPD). RAPDx objectively determines the magnitude of RAPD by presenting light stimuli alternately to pairs of eyes with laterality. The parameters of amplitude...

Immunoglobulin G4-related ophthalmic disease – what is it? (Part 2)

Part 2: Clinical presentation and treatment (see part 1 here) Introduction IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is understood to have a vast clinicopathological spectrum; nearly every organ has had reported involvement. Similarly, IgG4-related ophthalmic disease (IgG4-ROD) is known to affect nearly every...

Ocular blood flow changes in Behcet disease

This study evaluates ocular blood flow changes in both ocular Behcets disease (BD) and non-ocular BD (with or without thrombotic disease) and compares these findings with a healthy control group. A total of 90 eyes with BD were evaluated with...

An atypical presentation of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada Disease

The authors present a single case of atypical presentation of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease. A 42-year-old female presented with unilateral visual loss associated with systemic symptoms of fever and headache.

Rituximab as an immunosuppression treatment for thyroid eye disease

A case report of visual loss as a consequence of coeliac disease

The authors present a case of permanent visual loss secondary to occipital lobe calcification in coeliac disease, the first reported such case. The 58-year-old man had been diagnosed with coeliac disease 20 years prior to his visual investigations and had...

Selection of visual field test for detection of pituitary disease

This prospective cross-sectional diagnostic accuracy study compared Octopus semi-automated kinetic perimetry (SKP) and Humphrey static automated central perimetry for detection of neurological visual field loss in patients with pituitary disease. Humphrey central 30-2 SITA threshold programme results were compared with...

Visual field changes in thyroid eye disease (TED)

This study is a retrospective non- comparative review of visual field (VF) tests in patients with compressive optic neuropathy from thyroid eye disease (TED-CON). Ninety-six visual fields in 68 patients were included in the study and a two-step analysis of...
