Management of diabetic macular oedema (DMO)

The authors present guidelines on current diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in the management of DMO. Fluorescein angiography (FA) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) are recommended before starting treatment to help diagnose and stage DMO, and can be repeated if there...

Moorfields to start new retinal detachment clinical trial

Moorfields to start new retinal detachment clinical trial following £1.2 million MRC DPFS grant awarded to UCL and Moorfields Eye Hospital.

LambdaVision aims to refine process for in-space manufacturing of artificial retinas through ISS National Lab-sponsored investigation

Approximately 1.5 million people worldwide are affected by retinitis pigmentosa, a rare genetic disorder that causes vision loss. Currently there is no cure, but researchers from LambdaVision are turning to the International Space Station (ISS) National Laboratory to look for...

Retinal traction during ERM peeling

This prospective study aimed to quantify the retinal thickening induced by epiretinal membrane (ERM) peeling and to correlate this thickening with postoperative retinal function. Twenty-five patients who required surgery for idiopathic ERM were included in the study. The authors performed...

Occult central retinal artery occlusion

Central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) is a sight-threatening condition resulting from occlusion of the central retinal artery and hypoperfusion of the inner retina. Early on, fundal examination may be normal. The authors present a retrospective case series of 11 patients...

Traumatic ‘toy’ gun injury leading to permanent vision loss

Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) is a progressive, inherited disorder of connective tissue that affects the skin, cardiovascular system and retina. Ocular manifestations of the disease are related to Bruch’s membrane, a thin elastic tissue layer located between the retinal pigment epithelium...

Presentation profile for sports-related ocular injuries

This study sought to examine the initial presentation of sports-related ocular injury in youths presenting to a US tertiary eye centre. This was a retrospective study of cases with a one-year follow-up period. Over a five-year period of 2010-15, 3965...

Restoration of colour perception in patients with retinitis pigmentosa

This is a case series testing the feasibility of using bioelectronic retinal prostheses to partially restore colour perception in seven patients with advanced retinitis pigmentosa. Bioelectronic retinal prostheses are able to bypass degenerated photoreceptors to directly stimulate the inner retinal...

Microcatheter in the vertebral artery as a cause of branched retinal artery occlusion?

A 19-year-old male presented to eye casualty with a seven-day history of a ‘blurred patch’ in the left eye. The patient denied any other visual symptoms including flashes or floaters and there had been no change in visual symptoms in...

Atlas of Wide-Field Retinal Angiography and Imaging

Through extensive illustrations, this book, comprehensively yet concisely, covers the diagnostic speciality of wide-field retinal angiography and imaging. There are 15 chapters with contributions from 29 leading experts in this particular field who are mainly based in the USA, but...

Nicotine accelerates diabetes induced retinal changes

This study investigated the influence of nicotine in an experimentally induced diabetic rat model. They used non-invasive high-resolution spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) imaging to provide quantitative information on the temporal alterations of retinal structures at the micrometer resolution...
