Outcomes of corneal collagen crosslinking (CXL) in pseudophakic bullous keratopathy (PBK)

This was a retrospective non-comparative, interventional case series of 50 eyes in 50 patients with symptomatic PBK who underwent CXL (epithelium-off). Central corneal thickness (CCT), pain score, best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), and corneal transparency were recorded at baseline; at...

Visual and refractive outcomes and complications in FLACS versus CPS cataract surgery

This is a randomised, controlled study of 110 paired eyes from 55 patients that were randomised into either femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) or conventional phacoemulsification cataract surgery (CPS) groups. Visual, refractive outcomes, intraocular pressure (IOP) and complications were compared...

Retinopathy of prematurity treatment in the South West of England: long-term outcomes 1997-2008

Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a condition that affects the developing retinal vascular system of pre-term babies. If left untreated, ROP can lead to severe visual impairment. The severe visual impairment caused by untreated ROP can be prevented by screening...

Outcomes of corneal cross-linking in paediatric patients compared to fellow untreated eyes

This retrospective cohort study evaluated long-term visual, refractive, topographic and safety outcomes of corneal cross-linking (CXL) in patients younger than 18-years-old with keratoconus. The study included all consecutive paediatric patients who underwent epithelium-off CXL treatment for keratoconus at the study...

Visual acuity outcomes in Coat’s disease by classification stage

This is a retrospective study of 160 consecutive patients with Coat’s disease under the Shields classification, with Snellen visual acuity (VA) pre and post treatment. Affected eyes were categorised based on the Shields classification: Stage 1: retinal telangiectasia onlyStage 2a:...

Better outcomes from early repair of Type B blow-out fractures

This paper examines whether early, rather than late, surgical repair results in better motility outcomes for a particular subgroup of orbital floor blowout fractures. The authors divide floor fractures into Types A and B, depending on whether or not the...
