Closed-chamber haptic re-externalisation for posteriorly displaced sclerotomy and inadequate haptic tuck in glued posterior chamber intraocular lenses

This technique (online video http://jcrsjournal.org) emphasises the importance of both symmetrical and sufficient anterior placement of sclerotomies to externalise an adequate length of the haptics, which in turn provides good centration and stability of the intra-ocular lens (IOL). The authors...

Effects of ‘inverted U method’ Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy on anterior segment and IOL tilt

The study aimed to investigate the effects of the ‘inverted U method’ Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy on anterior segment parameters, decentration and tilt of intraocular lens (IOLs) and visual acuity in 76 patients with posterior capsular opacification (PCO) after previous...

Endothelial keratoplasty (EK) with anterior chamber intraocular lens (ACIOL) versus secondary posterior chamber lens (PCIOL)

This is a retrospective study of 82 eyes (23 ACIOL, 59 PCIOL) with a history of either pseudophakic (PBK) or aphakic (ABK) bullous keratopathy, who had descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) with retained or secondary ACIOL, or DSAEK with...

Orbital cavernous haemangiomas

This is a review of orbital cavernous haemangiomas (orbital cavernous venous malformations) managed over a 12-year period at a tertiary referral centre. Painless proptosis was the commonest presentation. One hundred and sixty-four patients (96 female and 68 male) underwent surgery...

The approach to angle-closure glaucoma

Further to my last article in Eye News (print issue) describing the diagnostic approaches to various clinical scenarios in glaucoma, the approach to angle-closure glaucoma (ACG), a situation terrifying for patient and registrar alike, will be discussed. Please refer to...

OCT in proliferative diabetic retinopathy

This report set out to describe the anatomical relationships between retinal neovascular complexes (NVC), the posterior vitreous, and the vitreoretinal interface in patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy using spectral domain OCT. The following was recorded for each NVC 1) posterior...

Myopathic ptosis and lower lid retraction surgery

This is a description of a surgical technique which simultaneously addresses both the upper lid ptosis and lower lid retraction in patients with moderate to severe myopathic ptosis. The procedure was performed on 16 eyes of nine patients and involved...

Clinical features of ocular syphilis

The study looked at 24 patients (20 males, four females) with serological evidence of syphilitic infection who presented to a tertiary ophthalmic centre. Ocular involvement was the first manifestation of syphilitic disease in 96% and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) seropositivity...

Ectopia lentis management

This review discusses the management of non-traumatic ectopia lentis in the paediatric population focussing on the variety of surgical options for these patients. The review considers visual sequelae and conservative management, limitations for surgery with respect to historical and current...

Normal values with Orbscan IIz corneal topography

This study aimed to establish a database of normative measurements of corneal typography in children aged 5-15 years with the Orbscan IIz corneal topography system. They assessed 100 eyes of 100 children. The mean SimK astigmatism was 0.69±0.35D. The maximum...

Resveratrol protects against steroid induced intraocular pressure

Topical and systemic steroid delivery is a very effective treatment for many ocular conditions but is compromised by raised intraocular pressure which in turn leads to death of retinal ganglion cells and irreversible blindness. This is an important consideration with...
