Relationship between intraocular pressure and optic nerve damage in optic nerve drusen

The authors present a retrospective study exploring the relationship between intraocular pressure (IOP) and optic nerve damage in patients with optic nerve drusen. The aim was to evaluate if patients with normal ocular pressure at the time of optic nerve...

Using a tumour registry to investigate optic nerve gliomas

This study is a retrospective comparative analysis. Patients with optic nerve glioma and pilocytic astrocytoma were identified through the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) cancer registry covering a 42-year period using standardised codes. The following data was extracted: basic...

Retinoblastoma mortality associations with choroidal and optic nerve invasion

The authors present a retrospective cohort study. Data was extracted from the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) database, based in the US and founded in 1973. Cases of retinoblastoma were extracted using the inclusion criteria of...

Gender and ethnicity related differences in optic nerve head

The authors investigated the effect of ethnicity and gender on optic nerve head morphology comparing Indian and Caucasian males and females. The optic nerve head was investigated using spectral-domain optic coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Results showed that disc and rim areas...

Use of RAPDx device with optic nerve disease

The authors have previously reported on use of the RAPDx device for evaluating relative afferent pupillary defects (RAPD). RAPDx objectively determines the magnitude of RAPD by presenting light stimuli alternately to pairs of eyes with laterality. The parameters of amplitude...

Case report review of children with septo-optic dysplasia and optic nerve hypoplasia

Septo-optic dysplasia (SOD) and optic nerve hypoplasia (ONH) cause congenital visual impairment. Their aetiology is mostly unknown. The authors aim was to investigate the prevalence of specified ophthalmological features in patients with these disorders. These features included impaired visual acuity,...

Differences in elastometry of cornea and optic nerve head in both eyes of patients with NAION

Non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (NAION) is an important cause of visual loss in the middle aged and elderly population. This prospective cross-sectional study investigates the biomechanical properties of optic nerve head (ONH) and cornea in both eyes of patients...

Positive diagnosis of acute posterior ischaemic optic nerve neuropathy

Posterior ischaemic optic neuropathy is a rare cause of visual loss believed to be due to infarction in the territory of the pial branches of the ophthalmic artery. There is an absence of clinical signs which means the diagnosis is...

Optic nerve swelling – your survival guide (part 2)

In this second article we will discuss bilateral optic nerve swelling, its aetiology, various investigations and possible treatments. We will also discuss various protocols used in the management of suspected optic nerve swelling cases. (Part one of this topic available...

Optic nerve swelling – your survival guide (part 1)

Assessment of optic nerve appearance and functions is a daily routine in neuro-ophthalmology. Following a recent high profile court case there has been a significant increase in the amount of referral to ophthalmology departments to assess the optic nerve and...

Use of the RAPDx device to evaluate efficacy of treatment in patients with optic nerve disease

The RAPDx objectively determines the RAPD magnitude by alternately presenting light stimuli to each eye and deriving amplitude and latency scores. The authors of this paper evaluated the amplitude and latency scores from the RAPDx together with other ophthalmic investigations...

Natural history of optic nerve head drusen in a paediatric population

A retrospective case notes review is presented focusing on children diagnosed with optic nerve head drusen over an eight-year period. Inclusion criteria included cases coded for optic nerve head drusen and / or pseudopapilledema. The aim of the study was...
