The prevalence of macular cysts in patients with clinical cone-rod dystrophy determined by spectral domain optical coherence tomography

Cone-rod dystrophy is a progressive photoreceptor disorder which has multiple inheritance patterns. It is rare, with a prevalence of 1 in 40,000. Macular cysts are well recognised in other photoreceptor conditions such as retinitis pigments and choroideraemia, while they are...

Lucentis for pseudophakic CMO

Pseudophakic cystoid macular oedema (CMO) develops angiographically in up to 20-30% after uneventful phacoemulsification. This study aimed to evaluate the potential efficacy and safety of intravitreal ranibizumab in patients with pseudophakic CMO after cataract surgery. Seven eyes were included in...

Understanding spaceflight-associated neuro-ocular syndrome (SANS): what do we know?

Unique case of steroid-induced intraocular pressure spike causing NAION

The literature describes previous cases of nonarteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (NAION) following rapid rises in intraocular pressure (IOP) leading to reduced optic nerve head perfusion and disruption. This is commonly following ophthalmic procedures, acute glaucoma or steroid eye drops....

Adjuvant intravitreal dexamethasone implant for persistent CME

In this retrospective, cross-sectional study the authors investigate the efficiency of intravitreal dexamethasone implants (0.7mg) for cystoid macular oedema (CME) persisting, despite immunomodulatory treatment in patients with Behcets’ disease (BD). Twenty-seven eyes of 20 patients (12 males and eight females)...

The role of inflammation in the pathophysiology of DMO

Diabetic macular oedema (DMO) is a major cause of visual loss in diabetes, with a complex multifactorial pathogenesis. In the UK alone it is estimated that there are nearly 2.5 million diabetic patients aged over 12 years. Approximately 65,000 of...
