Repeated orbital decompression surgery

This is a retrospective review of nine redo orbital decompressions in six patients. All operations were performed for dysthyroid optic neuropathy, both initially and when repeated. The interval between first and redo decompressions varied from one to 15 years and...

OCT prognostic factors in AMD patients with peripapillary choroidal neovascularisation

In this retrospective study the authors aimed to investigate the correlation between optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings and visual acuity outcomes after treatment with intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) injections for age-related macular degeneration (AMD) patients with peripapillary choroidal neovascularisation (PPCNV). Data...

How common is optic disc drusen in young patients with NAION?

A retrospective notes review at two tertiary care centres was completed between 2009 and 2019. The inclusion criteria for the study was a diagnosis of nonarteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (NAION) in at least one eye, aged between 18 and...

Long-term retinal changes following unilateral retrobulbar optic neuritis

The aim of this study was to assess the longitudinal changes in retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness after a first attack of optic neuritis and to investigate the impact of treatment on RNFL thinning at one year after the...

OCTA FAZ measurements in vein occlusion

Previous studies have confirmed that foveal avascular zone (FAZ) enlargement is correlated with visual acuity impairment in patients with retinal vein occlusion (RVO). This current study aimed to evaluate the OCT angiography parameters: the area of FAZ, foveal and parafoveal...

Do occult neuroretinitis and non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy differ in presentation?

This study evaluates differences between neuroretinitis and non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (NAAION) in terms of patient demographics, clinical presentation, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings. Medical records of patients with a final diagnosis of occult neuroretinitis or NAAION were...

Prophylaxis for clinical macular oedema after phacoemulsification

The authors report on a retrospective cohort study looking at three different prophylaxis methods for macular oedema after cataract surgery: 1) Topical prednisolone acetate (PA) alone; 2) Topical PA in combination with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID); 3) Intraoperative subconjunctival injection...

Principles of contact lens fitting in keratoconus

Keratoconus is an ectatic condition of the cornea characterised by progressive conical distortion with irregular astigmatism, myopia and apical protrusion. Most cases progress slowly resulting in varying degrees of myopic astigmatism. Management of keratoconus includes spectacles, soft contact lenses, a...

What’s next in retinal imaging? Faster, deeper and full-on

Fast-evolving technological leaps are opening the way toward clinically useful ocular coherence angiography, generating 3-dimensional microvasculature maps without intravenous dye injection, as well as whole-eye imaging, handheld patient-operated optical coherence tomography (OCT) devices and, for challenging vitreoretinal procedures, integrated intraoperative...

Exudative age-related macular degeneration

The authors looked at macular lesions in eyes with newly diagnosed exudative age-related macular degeneration. The eyes of 23 patients were included and tested for visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, microperimetry, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography....

DALK as an early therapeutic option for Acanthamoeba keratitis

Eleven patients with Acanthamoeba keratitis (AK) were treated by early therapeutic deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK). All surgeries were performed in patients who had no response to standard medical therapy of chlorhexidine gluconate, propamidine isethionate and neomycin sulphate, within 10-15...
