Incidence and risk factors of late in the bag intraocular lens dislocation

The aim of this study was to identify risk factors for late in the bag dislocation over a 21 year period. Worldwide the incidence varies from 0.05% to 3.0%. In this Swedish study they report an increase in incidence in...

Effect of anti-VEGF treatment on PED morphology

This retrospective study of 30 eyes assessed the effect of anti-VEGF on morphology of pigment epithelial detachments (PED) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Thirty eyes of 28 patients with PED were compared to 30 eyes of 30 patients with...

Squamous metaplasia of conjunctival epithelial cells with soft contact lens wear versus non-lens wearers

Conjunctiva is composed of non-squamous epithelial cells interspersed with goblet cells, which is a secretory epithelium. Squamous metaplasia is a transformation to non-secretory epithelium, ‘keratinised’ and enlargement of the conjunctival non-goblet cells and relatively shrunken nuclei are seen on impression...

Macular slippage following macular hole surgery

The treatment of macular holes now involves peeling the internal limiting membrane (ILM) as well as vitrectomy and gas tamponade. It has been noted in previous studies that following an ILM peel the morphology of the macula is different. Tadayoni...

Comparison of SIA from femtosecond laser and manual CCIs for cataract surgery

This study group compared the differences in surgically induced astigmatism (SIA) vector, flattening effect, torque and wound architecture following both femtosecond laser and manual clear corneal incisions (CCIs). A double-armed, randomised, prospective case series was conducted. Cataract surgery was performed...

Characteristics of limbal lymphatic vasculature on confocal microscopy

This ex vivo study aims to describe the morphological characteristics of the human limbal lymphatic vasculature using confocal microscopy and immunofluorescence. Twelve corneal specimens are obtained from human donor eyes. These corneal buttons are not suitable for transplantation due to...
