High myopes with POAG and IOP fluctuations

The authors describe a prospective study of 80 eyes of Chinese patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) on prostaglandin analogues to investigate if those who also have high myopia exhibit greater short-term intraocular pressure (IOP) fluctuations at resting conditions over...

Myopic choroidal neovascularisation

This is a review article summarising the latest myopic CNV (choroidal neovascularisation) literature in the clinical experience and management outcomes for recommendation algorithm. The aetiology of the myopic CNV was discussed by the authors under the heading of the heredo-degenerative...

Progression of myopic maculopathy after treatment

The authors report on a retrospective study carried out to evaluate long-term progression of myopic maculopathy and functional outcome in eyes treated for myopic choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) and in eyes without CNV. Fifty-four myopic eyes of 30 patients were included...

Associations of esotropia with shunts

This study explored the characteristics and outcomes of children with esotropia and ventriculo-peritoneal (VP) shunt placement due to hydrocephalus. The authors conducted a retrospective study of 16 patients (nine female, seven male) aged three months to 5.6 years (mean 17...

Surgical complications of ReLEx

Femtosecond laser refractive lenticule extraction (ReLEx) is a novel procedure for treatment of myopia and myopic astigmatism, which eliminates the use of microkeratome and excimer laser. Currently there are two techniques: FLEx – femtosecond lenticule extraction (similar to conventional LASIK)...

Phakic iris clip lenses and endothelial cell loss

This retrospective observational study included long-term results on endothelial cell losses in highly myopic eyes, which underwent phakic iris-clip lens implantations. Included in the analysis were 113 eyes with mean preoperative spherical equivalent (SEQ) of -14.67 +/- 5.15 Diopters (D)....

Surgery for myopic esotropia

The authors report a modified Jenson procedure for the treatment of high axial myopic esotropia. Their study includes 15 eyes of 13 patients with a mean age of 50±10.4 years. Mean spherical refraction was -22.53±6.06 dioptres. Mean axial length was...

What's trending Aug/Sep 2018

#QueenElizabeth #cataract It is well and truly summer! Queen Elizabeth was spotted in her sunnies during recent events, not just as a fashion accessory, or to shield the hot British summer sun. As it transpires, she underwent successful cataract surgery....

Comparison of bilateral lateral and unilateral recession resection for IXT

This is a retrospective review study of patients between the ages of three and 15 years old with the basic type of intermittent exotropia (IXT) who had strabismus surgery between January 2003 to September 2009. There were 85 patients included...

Hereditary profile of retinal detachment

This review sought to clarify some of the heritable elements of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). The familial element of RRD is well established, with the sibling recurrence risk ratio being 2.1 (Mitry and colleagues), and the parent-offspring recurrence risk ratio...

Influence of FLEx and SMILE on corneal nerve density and ocular surface

This was a prospective study designed to compare the influence of femtosecond lenticule extraction (FLEx) and small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) on the corneal nerve density and ocular surface for myopic correction. Thirty patients underwent bilateral lenticule extraction. One eye...
