Biometry measure after cycloplegia

The authors investigated optical biometry in an Indian paediatric population on normal and cataract paediatric eyes and studied the effect of cycloplegia on different parameters measured in these eyes. This was a prospective study of 76 eyes aged five to...

Two bifocals and a trifocal

The authors compare the optical outcomes of two bifocal intraocular lenses (AcrySof ReSTOR +2.50 Diopter [D] add +3.0D add) with a trifocal lens (AT LISA tri 839MP). The optical qualities of the lenses were quantified by measuring the modulation transfer...

Metamorphopsia in idiopathic epiretinal membranes

The Amsler grid is commonly used for self-monitoring, but is qualitative and has low sensitivity. The M-chart reduces the amount of spatial redundancy (‘filling in’) in the Amsler grid. The Orientation Discrimination (OD) test studied in this paper consists of...

Disc margin delineation using spectral domain OCT

Observing progressive anatomical changes of the optic nerve head is essential in the detection of progression in glaucoma. Imaging devices continue to evolve and are useful in detecting change in established glaucoma, although probably less useful in an initial diagnosis....

Study is carried out 100% online and the closing date for applications for training leading to these qualifications is Thursday 4 April 2024.

New SEE Summit speaker announced

ABDO has announced that Andrew Clark, BSc (Hons), MSc, AIEMA, will be speaking at the SEE Summit 2023.

New speakers for the SEE Summit

The Association of British Dispensing Opticians (ABDO) has announced two new speakers for the SEE Summit, dispensing optician Millie Fellows and Dr Angela Smith of ASDA Opticians.

Endothelial cell loss using different graft injectors in DMEK

This study aimed to investigate endothelial cell loss between two injector systems in descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) grafts; a glass injector – modified Jones tube and a plastic injector – closed system IOL injector, the Viscoject 2.2 system. DMEK...

Clinical Observation Days Pave Way for Next Generation of Optometrists

Optometry students at Glasgow Caledonian University have taken part in a series of clinical observation days at one of the UK’s leading eye surgery clinics, as part of a new programme giving student optometrists experience of modern day surgical practice.

OCT-A imaging in Grave’s orbitopathy and orbital decompression

In this case series of 12 patients and 24 orbits, the authors describe the changes in the optic nerve and peripapillary blood vessel density in patients with moderate to severe Grave’s Orbitopathy (GO) undergoing orbital decompression. The patients undergoing orbital...

OCT in peripheral corneal thinning

This small retrospective study used high resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) Heidelberg Spectralis to identify features which could determine the underlying aetiology of peripheral corneal thinning. Ten patients were included; five with diagnoses of degenerative peripheral thinning; Terrien’s marginal degeneration...

OCTA optic disc measurement differences between glaucoma and pituitary macroadenoma

This prospective case-control study aimed to assess the potential of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and OCT angiography (OCTA) in distinguishing between glaucoma and pituitary macroadenoma based on optic disc appearance. Thirty-one patients (23 with glaucoma, eight with pituitary macroadenoma) were...
