CFEOM outcomes

This study presents the orbital and cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of patients diagnosed with congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles (CFEOM) along with the surgical procedures and outcomes for ocular motility and strabismus. Nine patients are described: three...

Baerveldt Glaucoma Implant (BGI)

The authors describe surgical outcomes using the BGI and compared the different techniques used. The main differences described in the implantation technique include the use of a prolene stent in the tube, or fixation of the tube to the sclera....

Diffuse lamellar keratitis

This study group reviewed cytokine- and chemokine-mediated mechanisms of diffuse lamellar keratitis (DLK) after lamellar corneal surgical procedures. DLK can occur early or late (months to decades) after all lamellar corneal surgeries, including laser in situ keratomileusis, small incision lenticule...

Subconjunctival anaesthesia in vitreoretinal surgery

The authors present a technique that combines topical and subconjunctival anaesthesia for vitreoretinal surgery. In this ‘two-step’ procedure, three drops of proparacaine were applied to the conjunctival fornix, followed by subconjunctival lidocaine injected in three quadrants. This was compared with...

Residual esotropia surgery comparisons

The aim was to compare lateral rectus resection and plication methods in patients with residual esotropia for postoperative success rate, dose response, ipsilateral medial rectus limitations and reoperation. The study included 57 patients (31 female, 26 male) with 27 plication...

Augmented surgery for monocular elevation deficiency

The outcomes are described for augmented lateral rectus superior transposition in cases of acquired monocular elevation deficiency (MED) associated with large hypotropia in primary gaze. The lateral rectus was transposed superiorly and reinserted on sclera between the temporal margin of...

Modification of surgery to reduce consecutive ET

Surgical treatment for recurrent exotropia (ET) predominantly depends on the primary surgery. Modification of surgical dose may be required in secondary procedures. The aim of this study was to compare surgical outcomes of modified and conventional secondary surgery using lateral...

DVD angle measurements

Surgical treatment for recurrent exotropia (ET) predominantly depends on the primary surgery. Modification of surgical dose may be required in secondary procedures. The aim of this study was to compare surgical outcomes of modified and conventional secondary surgery using lateral...

An alternative to povidone-iodine for intravitreal injections?

While povidone-iodine (5% aqueous) preparations have historically been considered the most effective antimicrobial prophylaxis for ophthalmic procedures and have been adopted as routine for intravitreal injections, post-procedure pain is a commonly recognized adverse event of IVI and has typically been...

Corneal tattooing as treatment for bullous keratopathy

This retrospective study looked at differences in epithelial smoothing in patients with bullous keratopathy (BK) undergoing either corneal tattooing or anterior stromal puncture (ASP). Both procedures were carried out for symptomatic relief in eyes with poor visual potential. Chinese ink...

Surgical complications of ReLEx

Femtosecond laser refractive lenticule extraction (ReLEx) is a novel procedure for treatment of myopia and myopic astigmatism, which eliminates the use of microkeratome and excimer laser. Currently there are two techniques: FLEx – femtosecond lenticule extraction (similar to conventional LASIK)...
