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...

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,...

The embryology of the eye

Nobody claims to like embryology. At least nobody I know. It has been a neglected part of the curriculum since time immemorial and a vicious cycle occurs in which those with an incomplete understanding fail to appreciate the inherent beauty...

A case of bilateral idiopathic sclerochoroidal calcification

Idiopathic sclerochoroidal calcification (ISC) is a rare, benign disorder of the choroid and sclera. We present a visually asymptomatic 83-year-old caucasian male with clinical findings bilaterally of ISC, and discuss the investigations required to confirm diagnosis and help prevent further...

Augmented surgery for monocular elevation deficiency

The outcomes are described for augmented lateral rectus superior transposition in cases of acquired monocular elevation deficiency (MED) associated with large hypotropia in primary gaze. The lateral rectus was transposed superiorly and reinserted on sclera between the temporal margin of...

Silicone oil migration presenting as an eyelid cyst

The author presents a single case report of a rare complication of silicone oil tamponade, silicone oil migration, after pars plana vitrectomy. A seven-year-old female, with a history of vitrectomy one year prior for penetrating eye trauma, presented with a...

A case of late spontaneous subluxation of in-the-bag intraocular implant

An 82-year-old frail lady was referred by her optometrist with a finding of subluxated implant in the right eye. She had uneventful phacoemulcification with in-the-bag intraocular implant 17 years earlier. There is no history of having had pseudoexfoliation (PXF) or...
