Improved suppression after surgery for intermittent exotropia

This study aimed to investigate the clinical factors associated with the recovery from suppression, with successful postoperative target motor alignment in 237 patients with intermittent exotropia. Mean age at surgery was 8.2 ±3.2 years and 48.5% were male. Preoperative angle...

Esotropia Duane’s syndrome (DRS) surgery

The authors aimed to compare the safety and efficacy of augmented superior rectus transposition surgery with / without medial rectus (MR) recession versus MR recession along in the treatment of esotropic DRS. This was a prospective randomised trial of 20...

Defining of a successful surgery for different types of strabismus

The authors present the results of a Delphi study, following on from their previous work which defined successful general outcomes for strabismus surgery. This study aimed to define success outcomes for specific types of strabismus. Twenty-five experts were involved in...

Outcomes of cataract surgery in eyes with weak zonules

Pseudoexfoliation (PEX) and zonular weakness have long been known to increase the risk of complication of cataract surgery. This retrospective study looks at the results of phacoemulsion and intraocular implantation in 295 eyes with pseudoexfoliation and zonular weakness, with a...

RCT of operative routes for congenital cataract surgery

The authors evaluated the performance of 25G vitrectomy systems in the management of congenital cataract in infants through two routes – anterior (transcorneal) and posterior (pars plana). This was a prospective randomised trial (RCT) of 24 eyes of 12 patients...

Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery – A Practical Guide

The treatment of patients with mild to moderate glaucoma has evolved rapidly in the last decade. Traditionally, medical and laser treatments were the mainstay of therapy for this group of patients. Trabeculectomy, non-penetrating surgery and glaucoma drainage implants were reserved...

Contrast sensitivity after laser corneal surgery

This study group compared contrast sensitivity among participants undergoing wavefront-guided or wavefront-optimised photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) or laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) for the treatment of myopia or myopic astigmatism 12 months after surgery. This was a prospective, randomised clinical trial,...

Is laser refractive surgery safe for patients taking isotretinoin?

This multicentre, retrospective, interventional case series assesses the outcomes of laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) in 113 patients taking isotretinoin between January 2003 and September 2017. Isotretinoin is contraindicated for LASIK and PRK and patients are...

Myopathic ptosis and lower lid retraction surgery

This is a description of a surgical technique which simultaneously addresses both the upper lid ptosis and lower lid retraction in patients with moderate to severe myopathic ptosis. The procedure was performed on 16 eyes of nine patients and involved...

Using fusion measures to guide strabismus surgery

In this study the authors targeted patients with non-accommodative decompensating distance esotropia with investigation of prior binocular single vision. Choice of target angle was based on the individual’s fusional amplitudes. The target angle aimed to be less than the distance...

Foveal displacement after macular hole surgery

Previous studies show that internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling during macular hole surgery is associated with retinal shrinkage (microtubule depolymerization of the axons of the inner retina) and nasal shift of the fovea. A temporal inverted ILM flap technique was...

Surgically induced astigmatism after cataract surgery

In this study, the authors analysed a dataset of 122 eyes of 122 patients with pre- and postoperative measurements of corneal astigmatism with IOL Master 700. A standardised 2.5mm superior corneal incision was utilised. The corneal power vector component in...
