Understanding vasoproliferative retinal tumours

Syed Irtiza Ali Shah explores this rare and unusual condition through a fascinating case presentation. Vasoproliferative tumours of the retina (VPTR) are a vascular mass with an associated exudative retinopathy alongside the presence of minimally dilated feeder vessels. This is...

DRIL after macular oedema treatment in BRVO

The authors report the analysis of a single-site, retrospective, cross-sectional study to evaluate the association between disorganisation of the retinal inner layers (DRIL) and visual acuity (VA) after anti-VEGF treatment for macular oedema (MO) due to branch retinal vein occlusion...

Intravitreal dexamethasone implant for diabetic macular oedema

The authors report on the three-year outcomes of the Ozurdex Dexamethasone (DEX) intravitreal implant multi-centre trial for the treatment of diabetic macular oedema (DME). Patients with DME (best-corrected vision of 20/50 to 20/200 and central retinal thickness of ≥300µm) were...

Prognostic information for PRP-naive patients

The Diabetic Retinopathy Study group demonstrated that pan retinal laser photocoagulation (PRP) reduces severe vision loss by up to 50% in cases of proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). The authors of this current study aimed to provide information for laser naive...

Cataract surgery in patients being treated for neovascular AMD

This retrospective matched case control study evaluated outcomes and predictive factors of visual acuity (VA) change after cataract surgery in patients being treated for neovascular age related macular degeneration (nAMD). They compared 124 patients that had cataract surgery with 372...

CD40L activation of human RPE cells

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of reduced visual acuity in the elderly worldwide. The risk factors involved in AMD include smoking and diet, while genetics have been shown to have a significant role. Recently a link between...

Combined anti-VEGF and PDT for wet AMD

The authors report on a retrospective case series of combined anti-VEGF and photodynamic therapy (PDT) in the treatment of wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) refractory to anti-VEGF monotherapy alone. The criteria for treatment failure of anti-VEGF monotherapy were persistent subretinal...

OCTA in angioid streaks

This paper reports on the optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) features of choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) secondary to angioid streaks and the ability to predict CNV activity. A total of 38 eyes of 19 patients were included in the study. Thirty...

Multimodal imaging in wet AMD

This novel study set out to determine grader agreement levels of various retinal imaging techniques, commonly used in the diagnosis of wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Images from 52 eyes were by examined by two different observers. All images were...

Retinoblastoma in older children

Retinoblastoma is the most common ophthalmic malignancy in childhood and over 90% are diagnosed before the age of five years. It is not often suspected in older children given its rarity and unusual clinical findings which complicates the diagnosis. The...
