Unravelling ocular motility

Ocular motility can often be a slightly abstract concept during the earlier years of ophthalmology training. A large variance on what embodies normality; mythical concepts like fusion and binocular vision, examination techniques that can be fiddly, and complex neuroanatomy all...

Computerised tomography in ocular trauma patients

Ocular trauma can be common in military settings. This retrospective study looked into the relationship between the clinical effects of acute ocular and orbital blast trauma with the findings on computerised tomography (CT). This was a consecutive case series of...

Ocular motor score in spastic hemiplegia

The authors aimed to assess the oculomotor functions in children with spastic hemiplegia (SH) caused by different brain pathologies and evaluate the results obtained by the ocular motor score (OMS). The study included 34 children with a median age of...

A case of post-viral ocular microflutter

A number of eye movements disrupt visual fixation, one such movement being saccadic intrusions which are described as small involuntary saccadic movements. Among saccadic intrusions without intersaccadic intervals, ocular flutter and opsoclonus are prominent. When the saccadic amplitude is very...

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...

Wills Eye Handbook of Ocular Genetics

Wills Eye Handbook of Ocular Genetics is a concise and comprehensive guide to the diagnosis and management of ophthalmic genetic conditions. Ocular genetics is a rapidly-evolving field and an updated textbook is vital to communicate the recent advances made in...

Profile of sports-related ocular trauma

The authors conducted a previous study on the epidemiology of sports-related ocular trauma in Quebec. In this study they aim to gather further information on presentation via ophthalmology and emergency departments. They undertook a follow-up study from a tertiary care...

Simulated ocular surgery – strabismus surgery

See also Simulated ocular surgery and Simulated ocular surgery: pars plane vitrectomy and scleral buckling surgery Strabismus surgery requires a range of skills, distinct to those required for intraocular surgery. Even if a trainee does not plan to become a...

Sclerochoroidal calcification masquerading as ocular malignancy

Case 1 A 68-year-old Caucasian gentleman was urgently referred to eye casualty by his optometrist after seeing an unusual incidental finding of protruding lesions from the retina, suspecting choroidal melanoma. He was asymptomatic and this was his first eye test...

Grading of ocular inflammation in uveitis: an overview

Anterior uveitis is the commonest form of uveitis, which can lead to severe morbidity if not treated appropriately [1]. Data from general ophthalmology practices suggest around 90% of uveitis encountered by comprehensive ophthalmologists is anterior uveitis [2]. Intermediate (vitreous), posterior...

Ocular blood flow changes in Behcet disease

This study evaluates ocular blood flow changes in both ocular Behcets disease (BD) and non-ocular BD (with or without thrombotic disease) and compares these findings with a healthy control group. A total of 90 eyes with BD were evaluated with...

Choroidal thickness in ocular sarcoidosis by OCT measurement

This is the first study to evaluate the choroidal thickness in patients with ocular sarcoidosis during the quiescent phase using enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT) and comparing with normal subjects. Ocular sarcoidosis may affect the choroidal circulation (occlusive...
