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...

Mid-term evaluation of the new Glaukos iStent

This is a prospective non-randomised interventional study to assess the efficacy and safety of the Glaukos GTS-400 iStent combined with cataract surgery. The patients enrolled in the study had cataract and primary open angle glaucoma, pseudoexfoliation glaucoma or ocular hypertension....

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...

Using graphical illustration to predict giant cell arteritis

A nomogram is a chart or graph of scaled variables that facilitates the approximate computation of a mathematical function via intersecting lines. The objective of this study was to illustrate the use of a nomogram for the prediction of giant...

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...

Ocular neuromyotonia

The authors report a cohort of ten patients (nine female) with ocular neuromyotonia (ONM) for clinical signs and symptoms, treatment methods and outcome. Six had affected vertical muscles including superior oblique, inferior rectus and superior rectus. Four had affected lateral...

Bilateral LR recession for DRS

This study reports the use of bilateral lateral rectus (LR) recessions instead of unilateral LR recession for unilateral exotropic Duane’s retraction syndrome (DRS) with abnormal head posture. This was a retrospective study of seven patients; five female and two male....

UKISCRS donates £5,000 to support ophthalmology in Ukraine

UKISCRS Council unanimously decides on donation, supporting ophthalmic aid in Ukraine.

Phaco nightmares

I am interested in the stressful nature of cataract surgery from the surgeon rather than the patient’s perspective. It is an issue that has quite literally kept me awake at night. Part of getting to grips with a problem is...

Computer-assisted surgery in the orbit

In this paper the authors describe the growing use of computer-assisted surgery in ophthalmology. It is already described as a powerful adjunct in neurosurgery and sinus surgery and here they describe their experience of using it for the orbit; specifically...

Surgical strategies to manage incomitant strabismus in adults

Incomitant vertical and / or horizontal strabismus is a challenging presentation. Patients are usually symptomatic as the onset is either sudden so they haven’t developed any coping mechanisms or very complex so that any coping mechanisms will not cover all...
