Progression of high anisometropia in children

This study aimed to analyse the stability and progression of higher degrees of myopic anisometropic in children. This retrospective study included 63 children meeting the inclusion criteria. Mean age at initial visit was 4.3 years ±2. There were 51% males...

Complications after cataract surgery in high myopes: a systematic review and meta-analysis

The authors review all the modern literature on complications after phacoemulsification in high myopes with axial lengths (AL) greater than 25.0mm. Twenty-eight studies reporting on 19,586 eyes were included. The corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) improved from 0.96 ± 0.53...

Beware the disc in myopic patients

Glaucoma is a chronic and progressive optic neuropathy characterised by damage of retinal ganglion cells. Evaluation of structural damage of the optic nerve is important in glaucoma diagnosis. The ISNT rule states that the neuroretinal rim width is generally widest...

ECLSO (European Contact Lens and Ocular Surface) Congress 2022

This year ECLSO will be hosting their 49th scientific congress from the from 2-3 September in Paris. The society is affiliated to MCLOSA, the UK-based ocular surface society, and the European dry eye society EUDES, and aims to promote continuous...

Axial length measurement advice to be shared in webinar

The first BCLA webinar of 2024 will look at using axial length measurement as a guide for decision making around myopia management.

Ametropic amblyopia and stereopsis

This study aimed to evaluate the correlations between ametropic amblyopia (hypermetropic – 110, myopic – 30, and astigmatic – 65) and stereopsis in 205 children – mean age of 5.2 years ±1.8. For near stereopsis, significant results were found for...

Greater accuracy of cycloplegic refraction

The authors conducted this study on 5320 pre-school (four to six-year-old) and 6475 school (seven to ten years) children to compare the results of final glasses prescription based on cycloplegic refraction with atropine to those of non-cycloplegic refraction. For younger...

Contrast sensitivity after laser corneal surgery

This study group compared contrast sensitivity among participants undergoing wavefront-guided or wavefront-optimised photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) or laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) for the treatment of myopia or myopic astigmatism 12 months after surgery. This was a prospective, randomised clinical trial,...

Iranian prevalence of strabismus

There is little prior evidence on prevalence of strabismus in Iran. Thus, this study was undertaken to investigate the prevalence of strabismus types in Azad University students aged 18-25 years in South West Iran. A total of 752 of 826...

Retreatment of myopic LASIK with femtosecond and custom ablation

The purpose of this study was to identify the risk factors for retreatment post laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). A retrospective chart review was carried out for a four-year period and all patients who had undergone LASIK at the Boston...

Knobby eye syndrome

This study used high resolution MRI to demonstrate and evaluate globe shape in axial high myopia and identify and characterise those with prominent equatorial staphylomata that deflect extraocular muscle paths and presumably alter motility patterns in strabismus. The study included...

Intravitreal ranibizumab for the treatment of myopic CNV

The authors conducted a prospective study. Sixty-four patients (65 eyes) attended the 12-month follow-up examination. The mean patient age was 47.8 years. Fifty-five patients (86.0%) were females. All patients had pathologic myopia (a spherical equivalent of more than − 6.0...
