Initiatives in macular service provision

A report from Monitor in October 2015 identifies good practices that will realise most of the potential productivity gain in elective care available to NHS hospitals. These include: stratifying patients by risk and creating low-complexity pathways for lower-risk patients (tailoring...

Ginko bilboa extract affects hypoxic retinal pigment epithelial cells

Wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is characterised by choroidal neovascular membrane (CNVM) formation. It is thought that localised hypoxia within the retina results in overexpression of growth factors such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), which induces CNVM formation. VEGF...

Association between neurodegeneration and macular perfusion in the progression of diabetic retinopathy

In this prospective three-year longitudinal study, the authors aimed to explore the relation between retinal neurodegenerative changes and vessel closure (VC) in individuals with non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR). The participants included 74 individuals with type 2 diabetes, NPDR, and Early...

Developments in Ophthalmology: Ophthalmic Radiation Therapy Techniques and Applications

Radiation was discovered by Wilhelm Roentgen in 1895, and since then has been used to treat a variety of cancers. Its therapeutic properties have been widely used for ocular and periocular tumours and inflammatory disease, but the present era is...

Ophthalmology (third edition)

If you are an ophthalmologist who enjoys books with coloured pictures, you’re no lone wolf. The third edition of Lang’s Ophthalmology will definitely pique your primal ophthalmologist instincts. You will be drawn to its soft-bound yet sturdy looking exterior. Flicking...

Treat-and-extend regimen in treatment of patients with type 3 neovascularisation

Type 3 neovascularisation, also known as retinal angiomatous proliferation is a distinct subtype of neovascular AMD characterised by intraretinal neovascularisation. This retrospective study included 17 eyes diagnosed with type 3 neovascularisation who were changed from pro-re-nata (PRN) based treatment regime...

Paediatric uveitis in India

This article was a retrospective review of paediatric patients presenting to a tertiary hospital in India. Records over a three year period were reviewed. The authors highlight that children account for about 2.2-13.8% of uveitis patients and are at greater...

The natural history of treatment naïve choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) in geographic atrophy

The aim of this retrospective study is to assess the characteristics and natural history of quiescent CNV in geographic atrophy (GA) utilising multi-modal imaging. Case notes were reviewed of patients diagnosed with geographic atrophy between January 2010 and December 2016...

Macular measurements for amblyopic eyes

This study aimed to evaluate the macular parameters including foveal avascular zone (FAV) size and vessel density in amblyopia vs fellow eyes. The study included 23 unilateral amblyopia children (9.86 ±3.12 years; 52.2% female) and non-amblyopia control eyes (8.67 ±2.06...

Safety and efficacy of a nurse-led intravitreal injection service using an Precivia® injection assist device

Nurse-led intravitreal injections have become of great importance for busy eye units. In this article, the authors present safety data from five years of a nurse-led service with the use of the Precivia® intravitreal injection assist device. Intravitreal injections of...

Retinal microvasculature in amblyopic eyes

This study evaluated and compared measurements of macular vessel density and foveal avascular zone using optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography in amblyopia eyes and age-matched controls to determine whether results are in agreement with previous studies. This was a cross...
