Could the sclera be key to glaucoma?

The glaucomas are a group of conditions characterised by optic neuropathy and associated visual field defects. Of these, chronic open-angle glaucoma (COAG) – diagnosed on the basis of progressive structural changes to the optic nerve head (ONH) and nerve fibre...

Anterior segment OCT imaging in cases of episcleritis and scleritis

The purpose of this study was to determine whether it is feasible to obtain good-quality images with anterior segment OCT (AS-OCT) in patients with episcleral or scleral inflammation located anterior to the equator, and whether this technique is able to...

Strabismus outcomes after retinal detachment surgery

A retrospective study reviewed the motor outcomes of strabismus surgery in a cohort of 18 patients who had all previously undergone a scleral buckling procedure to treat retinal detachment. The mean age at strabismus surgery was 48 years (14-67) and...

IO surgery

The purpose of this paper was to evaluate the efficacy of a new surgical technique in reducing inferior oblique muscle overaction (IOOA) consisting of suturing the muscle to the sclera at the Gobin point with tendon sparing and using a...

SS-MIOCT for suture depth

The authors describe a case in which swept-source microscope-integrated OCT (SS-MIOCT) was used to directly visualise and evaluate key suturing-related steps of strabismus surgery in real time. Using SS-MIOCT, the surgeons could visualise the precise depth of the needle through...

Closed-chamber haptic re-externalisation for posteriorly displaced sclerotomy and inadequate haptic tuck in glued posterior chamber intraocular lenses

This technique (online video http://jcrsjournal.org) emphasises the importance of both symmetrical and sufficient anterior placement of sclerotomies to externalise an adequate length of the haptics, which in turn provides good centration and stability of the intra-ocular lens (IOL). The authors...

Cytokine levels in vitreous fluid in patients with pathological myopia

Pathological myopia (PM) is a leading cause of irreversible visual impairment worldwide, and efforts are dedicated to the study of its underlying mechanisms. Axial extension of the eyeball is regulated via a cascade of biochemical molecules that are initiated in...

Sutureless 27-gauge needle intrascleral intraocular lens implantation

The authors report on a prospective, non-comparative, interventional case series of patients undergoing sutureless intrascleral fixation of a posterior chamber three piece intraocular lens (IOL) using a 27-gauge needle for docking. Sutureless techniques have the advantage of not having complex...

Platelet-rich fibrin for conjunctivoplasty after pterygium excision

The authors report a prospective, comparative, non-randomized clinical trial of 35 pterygium patients with unilateral nasal primary pterygium infiltrating the cornea 2-5mm in size, who underwent pterygium excision between June 2013 and September 2014. Thirty-five eyes of 35 patients with...

What’s trending? Dec/Jan 2018

#scleratattoo Yes, you read that correctly. Scleral tattoos are a relatively new form of extreme body modification. Oddly enough, ‘sclera tattoo’ comes up with more hits on Twitter and YouTube than ‘scleral tattoo’. The procedure involves injecting a mixture of...

Consecutive exotropia features

This study sought to detect abnormal scleral attachment with comparison of histopathological findings in consecutive exotropia. The study also considered the success rate of medial rectus resection and advancement, dose response and evaluate potential preoperative factors that might indicate presence...

Swept source anterior segment OCT

The authors describe a study using the Casia OCT which is a swept source OCT to determine the visibility of the angle structures using two imaging protocols; high density and low density. They randomly selected one eye from 30 normal...
