The authors evaluate different procedures looking at point zero, fixation disparity (FD) and motor fusion amplitude in order to calibrate the measurement of FD with Ogle’s apparatus with the overall goal to create a standardised measurement of the FD curve...

Results of surgery in a case of FMNS

The authors present the effects of the tenotomy and reattachment procedure on a patient with accommodative strabismus and fusion maldevelopment nystagmus syndrome (FMNS) who did not require strabismus correction. The ocular motility study of this patient allowed the opportunity to...

Comparison of SS-OCT and SD-OCT in polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy

Swept source OCT (SS-OCT) is known to have a longer wavelength than spectral domain OCT (SD-OCT), allowing deeper penetration into retinal and choroidal layers. The aim of this study was to investigate whether SS-OCT is superior to SD-OCT in imaging...

Sex differences in the relationship between obesity and choroidal nevus in US adults

The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES); a population-based survey conducted annually in the US by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was used to identify populations at higher risk for choroidal naevus. Over a period of four...

Management of diffuse OSSN with topical chemotherapy

Aqueous humour cytokine levels in PCV and nAMD

This study looks into the possible roles of various cytokines or growth factors in the pathogenesis of exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD) by comparing aqueous levels of 14 cytokines between eyes with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) and those with neovascular...

Atrophy and anti-VEGF

The aim of this study was to investigate treatment factors, along with ocular and systemic factors for their association with macular atrophy (MA) incidence in eyes with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) treated with anti-VEGF aflibercept or ranibizumab according to...

Medical treatment of orbital lymphatic malformations

This is a literature review of the use of Sirolimus, to treat orbital lymphatic malformations. Sirolimus is an immunosuppressant used in renal transplants, and acts by inhibiting mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), which in turn inhibits activation of T and...

Laser pointer maculopathy

The objective of this study was to describe the potential clinical presentations of retinal pathology resulting from exposure to laser pointers. The study included eight eyes of seven patients. Mean age was 18.7 years (12-36). Most were accidental self-inflicted while...

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...
