Ocular surface in donor eyes after CLAU

This retrospective study examined ocular surface stability of donor eyes following conjunctival limbal autografts (CLAU). Forty-five eyes underwent CLAU with chemical burns being the most common indication. All but two eyes had just over 4 o’clock hours of CLAU segment...

Ocular Trauma Scores in paediatric open globe injuries

This is a retrospective case series of 71 open globe injuries in children of less than 18 years of age, with a minimum follow-up period of one year, between 1 September 1992 to 31 July 2011, from the Eye Department...

Literature review of isolated ocular motor nerve palsies

Patients aged over 50 presenting with isolated nerve palsies of the third (pupil sparring), fourth or sixth nerves, are often described as having microvascular extraocular palsies. This review looks critically at the evidence surrounding these microvascular non-arteritic extraocular palsies and...

Proning and the pandemic - ocular complications seen in critical care

ROP ocular outcomes after Bevacizumab treatment

The relationship between refractive outcomes and biometric parameters were evaluated following intravitreal Bevacizumab (IVB) monotherapy. Sixty-three infants were grouped into 1) infants treated with VB monotherapy for ROP (six with zone 1 and eight with posterior zone II retinopathy of...

Ocular adnexal marginal zone b-cell lymphoma

This is a multicentre retrospective study of seven eye centres of 689 patients with ocular adnexal extranodal marginal zone b-cell lymphoma (OA-EMZL). The median follow-up time was 42 months and the median age was 62 years. Fifty-five percent were women;...

Effective management of dry eye and ocular surface disease

Experts recommend a consistent approach to diagnosis, therapeutic targeting by disease subtype and escalation of therapy when tear substitutes are not sufficient. Experts call for a consistent, unified approach to diagnosis of dry eye disease (DED), with a new simple...

Optimising the ocular surface by managing meibomian gland dysfunction

Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) is ubiquitous. Ocular surface inflammation and irritation are prevalent in most ophthalmology clinics: corneal, cataract, glaucoma, oculoplastic, paediatric, vitreo-retinal, medical retina and refractive surgery. These patients also represent roughly one third of those attending for emergency...
