Efficacy and safety of intravitreal aflibercept injection in wet age-related macular degeneration

This is a sub-group study of double masked review of patients randomised to different dosages and treatment frequency compared between aflibercept and ranibizumab treatment. This is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of intravitreal aflibercept (IVT-AFL) in Japanese patients with...

Aflibercept for the treatment of neovascular glaucoma

The aim of this study was to investigate initial results regarding the treatment of neovascular glaucoma (NVG) with intravitreal aflibercept. NVG is classified into stages 0-3. In stages 1 and 2, abnormal vessel proliferation is seen with or without elevated...

Nicotine accelerates diabetes induced retinal changes

This study investigated the influence of nicotine in an experimentally induced diabetic rat model. They used non-invasive high-resolution spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) imaging to provide quantitative information on the temporal alterations of retinal structures at the micrometer resolution...

ABCA1 mediates lipid efflux in the retina

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in the elderly population. There are two forms of AMD, dry and wet, the latter so named because of the presence of choroidal neovascularisation. Both forms lead to retinal pigment...

Short-term effects of intravitreal bevacizumab on the cornea

Bevacizumab has been extensively used to treat macula oedema and neovascularisation of the retina and it has also been useful in the management of corneal neovascular diseases. This prospective study aimed to provide more information on the effect bevacizumab may...

Complement factor B polymorphism and the phenotype of early age-related macular degeneration

The relationship between complement factor H (CFH) and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is very well known, but other genetic polymorphisms relating to AMD are more poorly understood. This study was designed to investigate the relationship between complement factor B (CFB)...

Lacquer cracks

The purpose of this Japanese study was to analyse the morphologic features and natural progression patterns of lacquer cracks (LC). The presence of linear hyperfluorescence on the fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA) was used as the standard for diagnosing the presence...

Risk of CNV related to angioid streaks in PXE

This retrospective cross-sectional study investigated 301 patients with pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) for prevalence of choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) and macular atrophy. Some patients were excluded due to missing or poor-quality imaging or the fact that they didn’t have angioid streaks, leaving...

Distribution, progression, and outcomes of inflammatory chorioretinal lesions

This study investigated the distribution and progression of multifocal choroiditis (MFC) inflammatory lesions in 25 eyes of 20 patients and their correlations with clinical outcomes at 24 months. The distribution of choroiditis inflammatory lesions were evaluated semi-automatically using a dedicated...

Patient changes eye colour permanently and has brighter and whiter looking eyes

In this new series, Simerdip Kaur takes a look at the latest ophthalmology-related news stories and asks which are scientific reality and which are ‘fake news’. Headline: Patient changes eye colour permanently and has brighter and whiter looking eyes If...

Acute dellen formation post trauma

Corneal dellen are saucer-like thinnings, usually of the peripheral cornea [1]. Dellen formation is thought to be related to localised tear film instability [2], specifically the absence of the mucin component of the tear film. Without the mucin layer, dry...

OCT angiography and retinal vein occlusions

In this retrospective, observational case series, the authors set out to evaluate the morphology of the superficial and deep capillary plexa of eyes that suffered a retinal vein occlusion (RVO) on OCT angiography (OCTA) and compare the findings with fluorescein...
