The eye without tears

The Art is long and Life is short. So goes the dispiriting tag in Latin and flung from day one and at regular intervals thereafter at idle medical students who, inevitably brainwashed, come by graduation to believe that the only...

Ophthalmology for Medical Students DVD

Medical students spend far too little time in clinical ophthalmology, barely a week in a whole five year course. A week usually taken up by learning very basic facts about the eye and about the specialty, which means that any...

Acute comitant esotropia as the presenting sign of diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma

The authors present four children with acute comitant esotropia (AACE) associated with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma. All were treated with radiation therapy and all subsequently died due to the tumour. Children were aged 5, 5, 4.5 and 11 years. General...

Congenital cranial dysinnervation disorders (CCDDs)

The term congenital cranial dysinnervation disorder (CCDD) was introduced by Gutowski et al. in 2003 to describe strabismus conditions that result from developmental error in innervation of some of the extraocular muscles. Examples of these conditions include Duane’s syndrome and...

Superior oblique muscle tuck

The authors investigate the efficacy and safety of isolated superior oblique tucking in patients with congenital superior oblique palsy. The study includes 21 cases: eight females and 13 males aged 2-34 years. All had obvious superior oblique under action and...

Association between serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels and age-related cataracts

Cataractogenesis occurs as a result of ageing, smoking, exposure to UV radiation and genetic predisposition. Antioxidants can reduce the cataract risk as found in animal models and humans and vitamin D is one of them. This epidemiological study based in...

Prism adaptation outcomes in convergence excess esotropia

This study reports the changes to angle of deviation following prism adaptation in a group of 58 patients with convergence excess esotropia and their surgical outcomes. Age at prism adaptation was 7.2 (SD1.82) years. One child refused prisms and two...

Are single IOP measurements adequate for estimating the effect of IOP lowering interventions?

The World Glaucoma Association recommends that, to assess the effect on intraocular pressure (IOP) of medication or surgery, the mean of multiple measurements of postoperative IOP is a better reflection of IOP than a single measurement of postoperative IOP. The...
