PURPOSE: To compare the rates of circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular retinal ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GCIPL) change over time in healthy and glaucoma eyes. DESIGN: Cohort study. METHODS: The rates of circumpapillary RNFL and macular GCIPL loss in 28 healthy subjects and 97 glaucoma subjects from the Diagnostic Innovations in Glaucoma Study (DIGS) were compared using mixed effects models. RESULTS: The median follow-up time and number of visits were 1...

PURPOSE: Macular edema is the leading cause of vision loss in bilateral chronic non-infectious posterior uveitis, and is used to being treated using corticosteroids, immunosuppressive agents and biotherapies. The aim of this trial was to assess and compare the efficacy and safety of corticosteroids and IFN-α in adults with such conditions. STUDY DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial SUBJECTS: Adult patients with bilateral posterior autoimmune non-infectious and non-tumoral uveitis complicated by macular edema in at least one eye, were recruited...

PURPOSE: To measure and compare the cytokine concentrations in the aqueous humor of patients with acute non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION) and normal age-related cataract controls. DESIGN: Prospective, comparative observational study. METHODS: Aqueous humor samples were obtained in 10 patients with acute NAION (within 14 days of symptom onset) and 15 control patients with age-related cataract. The levels of 6 cytokines [vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-2, IL-6, and IL-8] were determined using a multiplex bead immunoassay...

PURPOSE: To determine the effect of dilating drops on strabismus measurements in adults. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study METHODS: Patients age 18 and older with strabismus underwent a standard evaluation of ocular motility, stereopsis, and ocular alignment with alternate prism cover test by a certified orthoptist. After pupil dilation with 2.5% phenylephrine and 1% tropicamide, ocular alignment was re-measured in primary gaze at 6 meters, at 1/3 meter and at 1/3 meter with a +3...

Koray Gumus, Karri L Schuetzle, Stephen C Pflugfelder
PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of the Oculeve Intranasal Lacrimal Neurostimulator (ILN) on conjunctival goblet cell degranulation. DESIGN: A randomized, double-masked, placebo-controlled crossover trial METHODS: A total of 15 subjects (5 normal and 10 dry eye) were enrolled in a three-visit study consisting of one screening and two separate randomized-masked ILN treatments (sham extranasal or intranasal). Tear meniscus height (TMH) was measured by AS-OCT before and after applications...

PURPOSE: To determine factors affecting the visual outcome in eyes with retinal vasculitis and the rate of neovascularisation relapse in ischemic vasculitis. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study METHODS: We reviewed 1169 uveitis patients from Moorfields Eye Hospital, UK. Retinal vasculitis was observed in 236 eyes (121 ischemic, 115 non- ischemic) that were compared to a control group (1022 eyes) with no retinal vasculitis. Ultra-widefield fluorescein angiography images were obtained in 63 eyes with ischemic vasculitis to quantify area of nonperfusion measured as ischemic index...

PURPOSE: Evaluate agreement and repeatability of axial length (AL), corneal curvature and anterior chamber depth (ACD) measurements of two new devices, one using Scheimpflug technology combined with partial coherence interferometry (Pentacam AXL from Oculus, Germany) and one using swept-source OCT (IOL Master 700 from Zeiss, Germany) to a widely-used optical biometer (IOL Master 500 from Zeiss, Germany). DESIGN: Prospective, instrument reliability analysis METHODS: Setting: Department of Ophthalmology, Goethe-University, Frankfurt am Main, Germany Study population: 79 eyes of 79 patients Study Procedure: All eyes were measured with the IOL Master 500, the IOL Master 700 and with the Pentacam AXL...
