Translucent vs. lightproof occluders

This study investigates the change in visual acuity following occlusion in amblyopes and non-amblyopes using translucent versus lightproof occlusion of the dominant eye. Group 1 non-amblyopes consisted of 26 subjects: 16 visually normal and 10 strabismic or anisometropic subjects without...

Amblyopia treatment

This study was conducted to assess practice preferences in the management of amblyopia among paediatric ophthalmologists. A close-ended multiple choice questionnaire consisting of 10 questions was circulated to 113 paediatric ophthalmologists and fellows of which 74 completed the questionnaire. Seventy-six...

Ocular ischaemic syndrome in a rat model

Ocular Ischaemic syndrome is a devastating eye disease caused by severe carotid stenosis. This study’s purpose was to develop a reliable rat model for this syndrome by subjecting rats to common carotid artery occlusion and sham surgery. Rats were assigned...

Dynamics of interocular suppression

The main aim of this study was to determine the development of the depth of interocular suppression in the course of occlusion treatment in amblyopia as well as its correlation with changes in visual acuity. The authors investigated whether presence...

A case of ‘60-day glaucoma’

Neovascular glaucoma (NVG) has been called ‘90-’ or ‘100-day glaucoma’ in the past due to its typical development three months after the onset of central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). In reality, NVG can occur anywhere between two weeks and two...

History A 29-year-old woman presented to the emergency department with a two week history of floaters and patchy peripheral visual field loss in the left eye (LE). She had no relevant medical history and she was not on any current...

The management of retinal vein occlusions: a summary

Retinal vein occlusions (RVO) are the most common cause of visual loss from retinal vascular disease second to diabetic retinopathy. Vision is lost due to ischaemia, macular oedema and / or haemorrhage which ultimately effects a patient’s quality of life...

Screening for Sickle Cell Retinopathy (SCR): Why we do wide-field imaging, OCT/OCT-A for SCR – Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

I have been working in ophthalmology for over five years as a photographer and research co-ordinator, and it is fascinating, rewarding, and interesting to learn all about the different diseases associated with the eye. One condition that has been a...

Comparison of thrombolysis and conservative management in acute retinal ischaemia

The authors present a retrospective cohort study of individuals presenting with acute, painless, monocular vision loss and diagnosed with acute retinal ischaemia. Reasons for exclusion were iatrogenic aetiology, transient vision loss, missing initial visual acuity data, more than 16 hours...

Proning and the pandemic - ocular complications seen in critical care

Priyanka Sanghi and her co-authors explore the ocular complications seen in critical care units throughout the country as we treat patients through this challenging time. The SARS-Cov-2 (COVID-19) pandemic has placed the NHS and critical care services under immense strain,...

Subthreshold micropulse laser in BRVO

The purpose of this retrospective, consecutive, single-centre, non-randomised, and case-control study was to verify the therapeutic effects and safety of oedema (from branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO)) recurrence suppression effect using 577-nm subthreshold micropulse laser photocoagulation (SMLP) in combination with...

Microtropia as an amblyopia indicator

This study was undertaken to determine if microtropia with identity (straight eye anisometropia) is a reliable indicator of amblyopia following optical correction. This was a retrospective review of 532 children aged four to five years. After two months of glasses...
