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...

Macula re-attachment following intravitreal ranibizumab in rhegmatogenous retinal detachment

Ranibizumab (Lucentis) is a vascular endothelial growth factor inhibitor (anti-VEGF) used for treatment of choroidal neovascular membrane [1]. We report a case where macula off inferior rhegmatogenous retinal detachment was misdiagnosed as wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and three intravitreal...

Manchester medical retina team to host free macula course

The Manchester Macula Course will be held virtually on Wednesday 15 September and Wednesday 29 September.

Macular pigment and dark adaptation in older population with normal maculas

Macular pigment (MP) such as lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin are highly concentrated in the fovea. They protect the retina from damage of ambient blue light via antioxidant properties. In older eyes with normal healthy retina, macular pigment optical density (MPOD)...

Intravitreal bevacizumab vs. triamcinolone in patients with DMO at the time of cataract surgery

This prospective, single masked randomised control trial (RCT) compared visual and anatomical outcomes when either intravitreal bevacizumab (BVB) or triamcinolone (TA) was administered at the time of cataract surgery and at subsequent review, if required, in patients with diabetic macula...

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...

Four key questions and answers for glaucoma practitioners

In this discussion paper the authors pose four questions for the clinician diagnosing and monitoring glaucoma, and supply evidence-based answers. Worldwide, the most common functional test used to diagnose and monitor glaucoma is static automated perimetry, most typically with a...

The prevalence of macular cysts in patients with clinical cone-rod dystrophy determined by spectral domain optical coherence tomography

Cone-rod dystrophy is a progressive photoreceptor disorder which has multiple inheritance patterns. It is rare, with a prevalence of 1 in 40,000. Macular cysts are well recognised in other photoreceptor conditions such as retinitis pigments and choroideraemia, while they are...

Imaging findings for macular dysplasia in nystagmus

This paper reports the retrospective analysis of congenital macular dysplasia in patients with albinism, macular heterotopias, congenital aniridia, foveal hypoplasia, congenital macular coloboma and congenital retinoschisis. The study included 29 eyes of 17 patients. The authors report SD-OCT aids diagnosis...

Macular thickness and visual fields

The authors describe a comparison of spectral domain OCT with Humphrey visual fields (HVF) mean deviation (MD) and pattern standard deviation (PSD), examining the retinal thickness of the macula and circumpapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) defects. Seventy-three subjects who...

Conservative surgical management of optic disc pit maculopathy

Four cases are presented in this case report that illustrates the option of conservative surgical management for optic disc pit complicated by maculopathy (ODP-M). Four men aged 24-67-years-old with no spontaneous resolution of ODP-M for a minimum of three months,...
