A log in the eye

"My friend wanted to show how far he could throw that log. So, he helicoptered it over his head, faster and faster and when he let go, it hit my eye at full speed,” a young lady of 19 years...

Outcomes of paediatric cataract

The authors aimed to compare the visual outcomes of primary and secondary IOL implantation and to identify the risk factors for the development of strabismus in patients with paediatric cataract. The study included 220 eyes of 148 patients: 76 unilateral...

Incidence and factors associated with complication of sutured and sutureless cataract surgery following PPV

This is a retrospective review of 485 patients who had undergone phacoemulsification and IOL implantation after previous pars planar victrectomy (PPV) surgery between May 2000 and May 2014. The incidence and factors contributing to complications were studied. The most common...

Long-term outcomes following surgery for traumatic cyclodialysis clefts

This retrospective case series evaluated the long-term visual prognosis and intraocular pressure control following surgical treatment of traumatic cyclodialysis clefts. Cyclodialysis clefts result from the disinsertion of the longitudinal ciliary muscle fibres from the scleral spur and occur as a...

Surgical management of IIIcnp

This was a retrospective review of a cohort of patients with complete third nerve palsy (IIIcnp) managed by a surgical technique of full tendon transposition (FTT) of the lateral rectus (LR) to the medial rectus (MR) augmented with posterior fixation...

BVI launch Vitreq® 29G Directional Spotlight Chandelier

The device facilitates bimanual surgery for vitreoretinal procedures with an integrated directional function and wide-view fibre tip for global endo-illumination.

Long-standing flattening effects on the globe following spaceflight

Posterior globe flattening has been well-documented in astronauts both during and after long-duration spaceflight (LDSF). This globe flattening is thought to be due to the disc centred anterior forces created by elevated volume and / or pressure within the optic...

Visual outcomes after surgery for primary RRD 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...

Sequential scleral fixated IOL followed by DSAEK better than simultaneous approach

This prospective randomised comparative study compared a simultaneous approach of combined scleral-fixated intraocular lens (SF IOL) and Descemet-stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) compared to intrascleral haptic fixation technique, followed by DSAEK in a sequential fashion with an interval of at...

Retroauricular myoperiosteal auto graft for orbital implant exposure

In this retrospective, observational study authors reviewed 27 eyes of 27 anophthalmic patients with implant exposure who had received a retroauricular myoperiosteal graft. Their main outcome measure was long-term coverage of implant and the secondary outcome was rate of post-surgical...

IOL power calculation accuracy in childhood cataract surgery

Refractive outcomes in eyes after vitrectomy vary as the timing of cataract surgery may influence the outcome when done as staged surgery after vitreoretinal (VR) surgery or at the same time as VR surgery. The authors aimed to determine the...

Cystoid macular oedema following retinal detachment surgery

There are limited studies examining the incidence and risk factors for postoperative cystoid macular oedema (CMO) following rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) repair. Postoperative CMO is thought to be due to pro-inflammatory state, where numerous cytokines lead to tight junction dysfunction,...
