Occlusion amblyopia

The authors report a case of binocular diplopia developing in an eight-year-old autistic child following two hours of total occlusion per day for six weeks. The child did not automatically resuppress once occlusion was stopped. Occlusion with Blenderm tape prevented...

Migraine and risk of retinal artery occlusion

This retrospective cohort study assessed whether migraine was associated with an increased risk of retinal artery occlusion. They reviewed a large insurance database of 418,965 patients who suffered with migraines between 2007 and 2016. These were then matched with an...

Impact of preop occlusion on surgical outcome

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of improved control with part-time occlusion treatment on the final postoperative surgical outcome in patients with intermittent exotropia. Eighty-nine patients were recruited who had unilateral lateral rectus recess / reset...

Occult central retinal artery occlusion

Central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) is a sight-threatening condition resulting from occlusion of the central retinal artery and hypoperfusion of the inner retina. Early on, fundal examination may be normal. The authors present a retrospective case series of 11 patients...

Thrombophilia in patients with retinal vein occlusion

The authors present a retrospective study of the prevalence of thrombophilia in patients with retinal vein occlusion. The study cohort included 88 patients with central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO), 51 patients with branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) and 40 controls....

OCTA FAZ measurements in vein occlusion

Previous studies have confirmed that foveal avascular zone (FAZ) enlargement is correlated with visual acuity impairment in patients with retinal vein occlusion (RVO). This current study aimed to evaluate the OCT angiography parameters: the area of FAZ, foveal and parafoveal...

Effect of one versus 24 hours diagnostic occlusion

The purpose of this study was to compare measurements taken after one and 24 hours of diagnostic occlusion in cases of basic and divergence excess types of intermittent exotropia. This was a prospective study of 43 patients (34 females) with...

Intravitreal functional plasminogen in branch retinal vein occlusion

Branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) is the second most common vascular disorder of the eye. Intravitreal injections of anti-VEGF agents and corticosteroids have proven efficacy. Posterior vitreous cortex (PVC) adhesion has been shown to support the development of retinal vein...

Time is vision in central retinal artery occlusion

Central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) is a rare but devastating vascular episode that can have severe impact on vision. Treatment is very time-limited and needs to be initiated very quickly to salvage any vision. The majority of patients present to...

RCT of VR training versus occlusion for amblyopia

The purpose of this study was to compare the visual outcomes of occlusion with game playing through a virtual reality (VR) system in children with unilateral amblyopia. The study was undertaken at the Negah Eye Hospital in Iran. This was...

Does Ozurdex affect perfusion status in vein occlusion?

Ozurdex (intravitreal dexamethasone implant) has been approved by National Institute of Health & Care Excellence (NICE) for treatment of patients with macular oedema associated with vein occlusion. This study looks at the change in peripheral perfusion status in patients with...

The incidence of retinal vein occlusion in patients with pseudoexfoliation glaucoma

In this retrospective study the authors aimed to evaluate PXF as an independent risk factor for the occurrence of retinal vein occlusion (RVO). Three hundred PXF glaucoma patients (PXF group), 300 non-PXF glaucoma patients, and 599 non glaucoma non-PXF (nGnP...
