Strabismus and scleral buckling

The authors examine the incidence of strabismus following scleral buckle for retinal detachment surgery and the factors that influence the strabismus, its incidence, preventative measures and treatment options. This was a retrospective review of 344 patients (360 eyes) with a...

Sutureless, scleral fixated-IOLs

This was a retrospective cohort study of 112 sutureless, scleral-fixated posterior chamber intraocular lens implantations (SSFCIOL) over a four-year time period. Mean follow-up duration was 13.0 ±10.4 months. The primary indication for SSFCIOL was dislocation of IOL due to zonular...

Scleral perforation after strabismus surgery

The aim of this study was to report the incidence, risk factors, treatment and outcomes of scleral perforation as a vision-threatening complication of strabismus surgery. The review included 12 papers: four prospective, two retrospective, two surveys, one review, two animal...

Resection versus plication impact on conjunctival-scleral thickness

In this study the authors aimed to compare the conjunctival-scleral thickness as measured with anterior segment (AS) OCT before and after medial rectus muscle resection or plication for exotropia. This was a prospective study of 7 resection cases and nine...

Long scleral tunnel technique to prevent tube exposure of Ahmed glaucoma valve

This retrospective study was done to evaluate the efficacy of long scleral tunnel technique and compare it with pericardium patch graft in preventing tube exposure of Ahmed glaucoma valve. Seventy-eight eyes of 73 patients were included. In group 1 patients,...

Long-term outcome of scleral-sutured posterior chamber intraocular lens

This is a retrospective review of 392 consecutive cases in 349 patients who had scleral-sutured intraocular lens (IOL) due to aphakia, subluxated or luxated IOL, over a 10-year period in one centre from Barcelona. Preop and postop data were collected...

Simulated ocular surgery: pars plana vitrectomy and scleral buckling surgery

See also Simulated ocular surgery and Simulated ocular surgery - strabismus surgery In this second article on ocular surgery simulation, we will discuss how vitreoretinal surgery can be simulated using high tech virtual reality modalities such as the Eyesi, as...

Micropulse vs. continuous wave trans scleral diode cyclophotocoagulation in refractory glaucoma

Continuous wave cyclophotocoagulation (CWCPC) delivers continuous high intensity energy to the ciliary body in an attempt to reduce aqueous secretion and hence lower IOP. It is often used as a treatment of last resort due to the potential side-effects of...

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...

Bovine pericardium scleral patch graft associated scleritis: Ahmed valve implant for pupillary block glaucoma

Processed bovine pericardium is a lyophilised collagen sheet used as a surgical armamentarium. It renders the material antigenically inert with minimal inflammation [1]. Sclera patch pericardium graft (Tutopatch) is a collagenous membrane derived from solvent preserved, irradiated bovine pericardium [2]...

Histopathology-guided management of ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) with corneal stromal or scleral invasion using ruthenium-106 plaque brachytherapy

This is a retrospective interventional consecutive case series of 42 eyes of 42 patients with OSSN with histopathologically proven corneal stromal and / or scleral invasion following excision biopsy. The mean tumour basal diameter was 9.3mm and thickness of 3.1mm...

Effect of long-term scleral contact lenses on corneal topography, tear film and impression cytology in keratoconus

This study of 16 keratoconus patients aimed to investigate the impact of long-term scleral contact lens (ScCL) wear on corneal curvature, corneal thickness, tear film function and ocular surface in patients with keratoconus. Corneal topography, tear osmolarity test, Schirmer 1...
