Visual field changes in thyroid eye disease (TED)

This study is a retrospective non- comparative review of visual field (VF) tests in patients with compressive optic neuropathy from thyroid eye disease (TED-CON). Ninety-six visual fields in 68 patients were included in the study and a two-step analysis of...

Selection of visual field test for detection of pituitary disease

This prospective cross-sectional diagnostic accuracy study compared Octopus semi-automated kinetic perimetry (SKP) and Humphrey static automated central perimetry for detection of neurological visual field loss in patients with pituitary disease. Humphrey central 30-2 SITA threshold programme results were compared with...

Visual field progression after glaucoma drainage device implantation

This retrospective interventional case series assessed changes to visual fields after implantation of a glaucoma drainage device (Baerveldt, Ahmed or Molteno Devices) between 2010 and 2015. A total of 106 eyes from 96 patients were included in the final analysis...

Functional visual field loss using automated static perimetry

Functional visual field loss is traditionally assessed by kinetic perimetry, typically producing spiralling isopters. This study looked at the spatial distributions of functional field deficits using automated static perimetry. A retrospective review of automated perimetry records was conducted using a...

RCOphth asks ophthalmologists to ‘show leadership’

The Royal College of Ophthalmologists has issued advice and guidance for ophthalmologists regarding COVID-19.

Patients with low vision benefit from optical sector seeing ‘beyond the eyes’

Patients with low vision are benefitting from an initiative developed by Visualise Training and Consultancy and funded by Thomas Pocklington Trust. Seeing Beyond the Eyes has released its impact report which highlights a huge increase in the number of optical professionals who will now refer patients with low vision to vital support services – up from only 9% to an impressive 96%.

Muscle insertion measurement by ultrasound biomicroscopy

The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) preoperatively and postoperatively in patients having primary horizontal muscle surgery. Sixteen eyes of 15 patients with concomitant horizontal strabismus were evaluated; mean age 21.1 ±3.3 years,...

Biopsy of nasolacrimal duct using sheath guided dacryoendoscopy

In this study the author’s biopsied six eyes of five individuals with recurrent nasolacrimal duct obstruction following a prior dacryoendoscopic probing. All procedures were performed under local anaesthetic, the obstruction or lesion was directly visualised with dacryoendoscope and biopsy was...

Effect of phacoemulsification on trabeculectomy function

Previous studies have reported cataract surgery post trabeculectomy to be detrimental to IOP control. Conversely, other studies have reported phacoemulsification performed before trabeculectomy as a factor for bleb failure. The objective of this retrospective case control study was to evaluate...

Avoiding pre-placed recti sutures in enucleation

This is a retrospective review of 40 patients who underwent enucleation using a non-conventional technique in which the recti muscles were detached from the sclera without pre-placing any sutures to secure the cut muscle ends. The surgery was only performed...

OCTA use in CNV associated with CSR

The aim of this study was to assess the rate of choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) in chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSR) patients with flat irregular pigment epithelial detachments (PEDs) by optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Data of all consecutive patients with...

OCT Angiography in Retinal and Macular Diseases

OCT angiography (OCT-A) is based on the concept that in a static eye, the only moving structure in the fundus of the eye is blood flowing through the vessels. This book explains how the technique allows a depth-resolved analysis and...
