Effects of topical anaesthetic on intraocular pressure

This prospective interventional study assessed the effects of repeated intraocular pressure (IOP) using Goldmann applanation tonometry and applanation resonance tonometry in six volunteers. Previous literature supports IOP reduction using repeated applanation tonometry. Repeated IOP measures were taken alternately on 12...

Liquid adhesive bandage for clear corneal cataract incisions

This paper reports a prospective randomised controlled trial of patients undergoing routine phacoemulsification with a 2.75mm clear corneal incision and followed up for 14 days postoperatively. They evaluated wound edge closure, surgically induced astigmatism and foreign body sensation after use...

Radiation maculopathy

This is a retrospective non-randomised study of 13 consecutive eyes of 13 patients affected by radiation maculopathy secondary to eye irradiation for primary uveal melanoma (Iodine-125 brachytherapy). All patients were treated with a single intravitreal 0.7mg dexamethasone implant and full...

Lacquer cracks

The purpose of this Japanese study was to analyse the morphologic features and natural progression patterns of lacquer cracks (LC). The presence of linear hyperfluorescence on the fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA) was used as the standard for diagnosing the presence...

Multimodal Retinal Imaging

Understanding of rapidly advancing retinal imaging techniques is important as they have changed the management of retinal conditions considerably. Interpretation of these tests is a vital skill in the armamentarium of every practising ophthalmologist. The book is directed at general...

Effects of idiopathic intracranial hypertension on the optic nerves

The authors review the latest evidence regarding how the optic nerves are affected by idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), possible pathophysiology and methods of assessment. IIH is described as a clinical syndrome of raised intracranial pressure of unknown aetiology. A systematic...

Evaluation of fluocinolone acetonide in the management of BRC

This is a single-centre, retrospective, intervention study of 15 eyes of birdshot retinochoroiditis (BRC) patients who received Iluvein, with a mean follow-up period of 31 months. Five eyes had previously received dexamethasone intravitreal implant 0.7mg (Ozurdex). Fluorescein angiography (FA) showed...

Diabetic Macular Oedema

Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder that affects the metabolism of all three categories of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins. This condition is characterised by chronic hyperglycaemia [1]. This can cause end organ damage. The estimated worldwide diabetes prevalence for 2010...

Glucose-sensing contact lenses replace the finger prick test!

Simerdip Kaur takes a look at the latest ophthalmology-related news stories and asks which are scientific reality and which are ‘fake news’. Headline: Glucose-sensing contact lenses replace the finger prick test! The concept of contact lenses was first illustrated by...

New mouse model of diabetes mellitus

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a serious complication of diabetes. It is driven by the loss of pericytes, cells which control vascular function, due to excess formation of sugar alcohols by the enzyme aldose reductase (AR). AR has been shown to...

Understanding vasoproliferative retinal tumours

Syed Irtiza Ali Shah explores this rare and unusual condition through a fascinating case presentation. Vasoproliferative tumours of the retina (VPTR) are a vascular mass with an associated exudative retinopathy alongside the presence of minimally dilated feeder vessels. This is...

Assessing and treating achromatopsia

This literature review considers clinical characteristics (pendular nystagmus, poor visual acuity, lack of colour vision and marked photophobia), genetics (autosomal recessive disease, with CNGA3, CNGB3, GNAT2, PDE6C, PDE6H and ATF6 gene mutations), diagnostic options (OCT and fundus auto fluorescence), and...
