Diagnosis and management of orbital vascular malformations

This is an authoritative review of a controversial and difficult clinical area. The authors have experience of over 350 cases and provide a well-structured review of the classification and management of orbital vascular malformations. They emphasise the need to understand...

Retinal vascular occlusion from gentamicin injection post-vitrectomy

The authors present two case reports for the rare, but serious, complication of retinal vascular occlusion as a presumed result of subconjunctival injection following 25-gauge vitrectomy. Risk factors for the complication include: cardiovascular disease, retrobulbar anaesthesia, high intraocular pressure (IOP)...

Retinal microvasculature in amblyopic eyes

This study evaluated and compared measurements of macular vessel density and foveal avascular zone using optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography in amblyopia eyes and age-matched controls to determine whether results are in agreement with previous studies. This was a cross...

OCT angiography sign after whiplash

Berlin’s oedema is a rare condition following blunt ocular injury and a rare finding after whiplash injury. This case describes a 48-year-old male who suffered a seventh vertebrae fracture from a traffic accident. Two days later, decreased left eye visual...

The effects of anti-VEGF therapy for NvAMD on retinal vasculature

This retrospective consecutive case series examined 54 eyes of 54 treatment-naïve neovascular age-related macular degeneration (N-AMD) patients. Thirty-three eyes received intravitreal aflibercept injections, and 21 eyes received intravitreal ranibizumab injections with unaffected fellow eyes (54 eyes) as controls. All image...

Do bilateral same day intravitreal injections increase the risk of endophthalmitis?

This large retrospective cohort study reviewed all patients who had bilateral intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) injections between April 2012 and August 2017. There were 101,932 procedures performed in 5890 patients. The two most common indications for injections were...

OCT angiography metrics in children

This prospective study aimed to quantify the vessel density of both the macular and optic nerve and foveal avascular zone (FAZ) values in 92 normal eyes of 92 children (42 boys, 50 girls) aged 13.4 ±2.65 years (seven to 18)....

Macular atrophy with aflibercept

The authors of this paper set out to investigate the prevalence of macular atrophy in treatment-naive patients with neovascular AMD undergoing aflibercept monotherapy (three monthly loading injections followed by subsequent treatment every two months). Case notes over a three year...

Reduced blood flow and age-related macular degeneration

This was a prospective cross-sectional study assessing changes in blood flow velocity in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) using a retinal function imager. Sixty eyes with wet AMD were compared to 53 control eyes and the average blood flow...

The clinical spectrum of albinism

The authors sought to examine clinical correlates that may be related to foveal development in albinism with an aim to qualitatively describe the phenotype spectrum of albinism. Binocular best corrected visual acuity ranged from 20/20 to 20/80. Best corrected visual...

OCTA FAZ measurements in vein occlusion

Previous studies have confirmed that foveal avascular zone (FAZ) enlargement is correlated with visual acuity impairment in patients with retinal vein occlusion (RVO). This current study aimed to evaluate the OCT angiography parameters: the area of FAZ, foveal and parafoveal...
