Retinal findings in COVID-19 patients

This is a single centre cross-sectional study from Brazil between 20 to 23 May 2020, with a total of 18 patients; nine male and median age was 62.5-years-old. 10/18 (55.6%) had retina abnormalities upon dilated eye examination. Flame-shaped haemorrhages were...

Treatment outcomes for retinal detachment

This is a retrospective, nationwide, multicentre study with retinal detachment (RD) in the Japan-RD registry between 2016 to 2017. The primary outcome was the estimated mean difference of postoperative corrected visual acuity (CVA) in six months and a propensity score...

Silicone oil (SOT) versus gas (GT) tamponade for primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment treated successfully with a propensity score analysis

This is a retrospective, nationwide, multicentre study with retinal detachment (RD) in the Japan-RD Registry between 2016 to 2017. The primary outcome was the estimated mean difference of postoperative cerebral vascular accident (CVA) in six months and a propensity score...

OCTA FAZ measurements in vein occlusion

Previous studies have confirmed that foveal avascular zone (FAZ) enlargement is correlated with visual acuity impairment in patients with retinal vein occlusion (RVO). This current study aimed to evaluate the OCT angiography parameters: the area of FAZ, foveal and parafoveal...

Silicone oil in rhegmatogenous retinal detachment

Silicone oil (SO), used in complicated retinal detachments, is associated with complications such as cataract, increased intraocular pressure (IOP), keratopathy, cystoid macular oedema (CMO), epiretinal membrane (ERM) and loss of vision. Emulsification of oil can also lead to migration of...

Visual outcomes after surgery for primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment in era of microincision vitrectomy

This is a prospective, multicentre, nationwide study between 2016 and 2017, to investigate the preoperative ocular factors, surgical techniques (pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) or scleral buckling (SB), or combined procedures) for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) and postoperative best corrected visual...

My top five: Innovative approaches to dry AMD

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the leading causes of irreversible blindness in the developing world with its prevalence rising alongside age. In societies characterised by ageing populations, it is imperative we explore more effective treatment to alleviate the...

A case of retinal cavernous haemangioma – don’t let it slip through the grapevine

We present a case of a seven-year-old male who presented to the emergency eye referral clinic with red eye. He was diagnosed and treated for allergic conjunctivitis, however, on clinic review, wide field retinal imaging was performed (as has been...

Management of giant retinal tears with vitrectomy and perfluorocarbon liquid postoperatively as a short-term tamponade

The authors report an eight year retrospective case series study of 30 eyes of 29 patients with who underwent a giant retinal tear-related retinal detachment repair. M: F ratio was 23:6. Right to left eye ratio was 16:14. The mean...

Assessment of retinal capillary VD and FAZ area in CSC using OCTA

The authors aim to report a cross-sectional, case controlled study, the purpose of which was to access the retinal capillary vessel density (VD) and foveal avascular zone (FAZ) area in acute and chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) patients compared to...

Sickle cell maculopathy

This paper reports the result of a prospective study to analyse the prevalence of sickle cell maculopathy (SCM) and its associations with age, sex, genotype, proliferative sickle cell retinopathy (PSR) stage, and the impact on visual acuity (VA). This study...

Correlation between anti-retinal antibodies and proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR)

The pathological basis of PVR is not clearly understood and there are no effective medications targeting this condition. This cross-sectional study looked at the possible association of anti-retinal antibodies with patients with PVR and retinal detachment (RD). Aqueous and vitreous...
