Macular thickness after strabismus surgery

The aim of this study was to determine whether strabismus surgery is associated with changes in macular thickness as detected by OCT. The study included 60 eyes of 30 patients with mean age of 28.9±14.2 years undergoing unilateral surgery. Mean...

Management of diabetic macular oedema (DMO)

The authors present guidelines on current diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in the management of DMO. Fluorescein angiography (FA) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) are recommended before starting treatment to help diagnose and stage DMO, and can be repeated if there...

Reduced blood flow and age-related macular degeneration

This was a prospective cross-sectional study assessing changes in blood flow velocity in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) using a retinal function imager. Sixty eyes with wet AMD were compared to 53 control eyes and the average blood flow...

Macular oedema after cataract surgery in diabetic patients

The authors describe a multi-centre prospective observational study of 293 participants that underwent cataract surgery who all had diabetic retinopathy without definite central-involved macular oedema. Forty-five clinical sites took part throughout the United States. Patients were eligible if there was...

Clinical scenario: A 64-year-old lady presented to the clinic with a few weeks history of sudden onset of metamorphopsia, central blur and reduced vision in her right eye. The ocular examination and ocular coherence tomography confirmed right eye focal vitreomacular...

Ranibizumab for the treatment of age-related macular degeneration

This multicentre randomised prospective open label study compared 0.5 versus 2mg of ranibizumab in patients with submacular retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) detachment due to age-related macular degeneration. Four treatment regimens were used for the two strengths either monthly for 12...

Prophylaxis for clinical macular oedema after phacoemulsification

The authors report on a retrospective cohort study looking at three different prophylaxis methods for macular oedema after cataract surgery: 1) Topical prednisolone acetate (PA) alone; 2) Topical PA in combination with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID); 3) Intraoperative subconjunctival injection...

Atlas Optical Coherence Tomography of Macular Diseases and Glaucoma

The book is divided into three sections: an introduction to optical coherence tomography (OCT), the OCT in macular diseases, and glaucoma. The first section lists the currently commercially available OCT machines, then describes the techniques for acquiring OCT images using...

Full thickness macular hole after YAG PI

The authors report a case of macular hole post YAG peripheral iridotomy (PI) of a patient with pre-existing vitreomacular adhesion. Although a relatively safe procedure, some anterior segment complications are well documented such as corneal endothelium damage, rise in IOP,...

A unique case of macular burn from ‘toy’ laser

The first laser was created in 1960 and its name is an acronym for ‘light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation’. Laser technology has been used for medical, industrial, research and entertainment purposes in a variety of fields following extensive...

Brolucizumab in age-related macular degeneration, HAWK Study

The aim of the study was to collect additional data on efficacy and safety of brolucizumab 6mg intended for commercialization in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) (with an increase in pH and decrease in polysorbate concentration). The HAWK Study was a...
