Adaptive optics imaging: resolving single cells in the living eye

The human retina is unique in the central nervous system (CNS) in that it can be directly visualised non-invasively. Technological advances of several imaging modalities, including optical coherence tomography (OCT), multichannel scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (SLO) and fundus photography, have afforded...

Demyelinating optic neuropathy

Introduction Optic neuritis (ON) is an inflammatory process affecting the optic nerve. After glaucoma, it is the most common optic neuropathy affecting patients under the age of 50. The usual presentation of typical ON is unilateral subacute loss of vision...

100% Ophthalmology Programme Insights

We spoke to some of the Eye News family about their upcoming presentations at 100% Opthalmology, 24–26 February 2024, ExCeL London, UK.

Ocular manifestations of multiple sclerosis: an overview

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune demyelinating disease of the central nervous system (CNS), in which there is dissemination of lesions in time (two or more clinical events) and space (multiple lesions seen on brain and spinal imaging). The pathophysiology...

Multimodal Retinal Imaging

Understanding of rapidly advancing retinal imaging techniques is important as they have changed the management of retinal conditions considerably. Interpretation of these tests is a vital skill in the armamentarium of every practising ophthalmologist. The book is directed at general...

1st International Conference on Myopia in Pakistan

By Mr MS Samuel, Medical Director, Laser Refractive Surgery Services, Optimax & Ultralase. I have just returned from Pakistan after attending the first International Conference on Myopia organised by the University of Faisalabad at the School of Optometry. The conference...

Comparison of SS-OCT and SD-OCT in polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy

Swept source OCT (SS-OCT) is known to have a longer wavelength than spectral domain OCT (SD-OCT), allowing deeper penetration into retinal and choroidal layers. The aim of this study was to investigate whether SS-OCT is superior to SD-OCT in imaging...

Macular pigment and dark adaptation in older population with normal maculas

Macular pigment (MP) such as lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin are highly concentrated in the fovea. They protect the retina from damage of ambient blue light via antioxidant properties. In older eyes with normal healthy retina, macular pigment optical density (MPOD)...

Update on primary angle closure glaucoma

This review article considers primary angle-closure glaucoma which is responsible for half of glaucoma-related blindness worldwide. Angle closure is characterised by appositional contact between the iris and trabecular meshwork. It tends to develop in eyes with shallow anterior chambers, anteriorly...

Fixation target position for increased limbus measurement accuracy with AS-OCT

The authors intended to determine the optimal gaze fixation points for lateral rectus and medial rectus muscle insertions using anterior segment - optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) compared with intraoperative measurements. They recorded 46 lateral and 36 medial rectus muscles from...

Obituary: a heartfelt goodbye to Roger Pope

One of the most admired of UK opticians, Roger Pope, holder of two Royal Warrants, has sadly passed away leaving a legacy as the greatest colleague and friend to the optical community.

Near-infrared autofluorescence to diagnose retinal laser injuries

This retrospective observational case series aimed to assess whether near infrared autofluorescence (NIR-AR) imaging is a useful imaging modality in the diagnosis of hand-held laser retinal injuries. Twelve patients from two centres underwent ophthalmic assessment and retinal imaging including fundus...
