PURPOSE: To compare outcomes of two techniques of frontalis silicone sling surgery. METHODS: This retrospective, nonrandomized chart review was performed on patients undergoing frontalis sling surgery between 2008 and 2011. Silicone rods were sutured to the tarsal plate through an eyelid crease incision (open method) or stab incisions (closed method). Data were collected on age, gender, type of surgery, preoperative and postoperative margin reflex distance (MRD), and complications...

PURPOSE: To determine the incidence and related risk factors of reoperation among patients with infantile exotropia who were operated on at Imam Hossein Medical Center, Tehran, Iran, from 2001 to 2015. METHODS: In this study, 82 children (55 girls and 27 boys) with infantile exotropia were divided into two groups 3 months after their first operation: children with horizontal deviation of 10 prism diopters (PD) or less (n = 64; success group) and those with horizontal deviation greater than 10 PD (n = 18; failure group)...

PURPOSE: If the interruption of macular fusion for an extended period of time is the key event that results in the development of monofixation syndrome, then the decreased macular input caused by dense cataracts may cause monofixation syndrome in adults. This study was designed to test this hypothesis. METHODS: The study design was a retrospective chart review that identified patients with unilateral cataracts at two southern Louisiana medical centers. Patients were assigned to the dense cataract group if a unilateral cataract had been present for at least 3 months and led to a visual acuity of worse than 20/200...

PURPOSE: To compare the visual outcomes of primary and secondary intraocular lens (IOL) implantations and to identify the risk factors for the development of strabismus in patients with pediatric cataract. METHODS: The records of the pediatric patients who had undergone cataract surgery between January 1999 and November 2014 were reviewed retrospectively. The results of the cases with cataract extraction with primary IOL implantation (primary group) and cases with secondary IOL implantation (secondary group) were compared and the risk factors for the development of strabismus were investigated...

PURPOSE: To study ophthalmological outcomes of premature children with no retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) and correlate with neurodevelopmental outcomes. METHODS: A total of 69 former preterm infants were evaluated at 2 to 7 years of age. Detailed ophthalmologic examinations were performed. Neurodevelopment was assessed using the Peabody Developmental Motor Scale and Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence. Another 69 healthy children served as controls...

PURPOSE: To review the impact of vitrectomy and tube shunts on mean intraocular pressure (IOP) and number of glaucoma medications in pediatric aphakic glaucoma. METHODS: A retrospective review of pediatric patients who underwent combined vitrectomy and glaucoma tube shunt surgery for aphakic glaucoma was conducted. Inclusion criteria were: age 18 years or younger, diagnosis of aphakic glaucoma, preoperative IOP data, and postoperative IOP data for at least 6 months...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare pediatric and adult ophthalmology consultations in an urban academic center. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of patients evaluated by the ophthalmology consultation service from January through June 2014 was conducted. RESULTS: A total of 751 inpatients and emergency department patients were evaluated by the ophthalmology consultation service, of whom 152 (20.4%) were children and 598 (79...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effects of pediatric corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) on corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA), maximum keratometry (Kmax), and other Scheimpflug imaging system parameters during 2 years of follow-up. METHODS: The records of 29 eyes of 29 pediatric patients who underwent unilateral CXL treatment for progressive keratoconus were reviewed. Changes in CDVA, Kmax, anterior chamber depth, anterior chamber volume, anterior chamber angle, pupil-center pachymetry, apical pachymetry, thinnest pachymetry, corneal volume, and topographic indices (index of surface variance [ISV], index of vertical asymmetry [IVA], index of height asymmetry [IHA], keratoconus index [KI], center keratoconus index [CKI], index of height decentration [IHD], and minimum radius of curvature [Rmin]) were analyzed among baseline and 1 and 2 years after the CXL treatment...

PURPOSE: To investigate changes in the spherical equivalent (SE) refractive error and astigmatism in a pediatric referral population in Korea with longitudinal follow-up and to evaluate the effect of risk factors on changes in refractive error. METHODS: This was a retrospective case series. In total, 221 patients who presented to a tertiary care hospital when aged 3 to 9 years and who underwent at least 10 years of follow-up were enrolled. The patients were divided into groups in terms of the initial extent of SE refractive error, the initial extent of astigmatism, sex, and ocular alignment...

PURPOSE: To quantify the outcomes of a single circumferential trabeculotomy versus a single conventional trabeculotomy after 2 years of follow-up in patients who underwent primary pediatric glaucoma surgery. METHODS: This was a retrospective study of patients aged 1 day to 3 years who underwent primary pediatric glaucoma surgery. A total of 45 patients (79 eyes) were followed up for 2 years. There were two groups: the 360-degrees circumferential trabeculotomy with illuminated catheter group and the conventional trabeculotomy group...

Resistant strains of cytomegalovirus can be difficult to treat in cases of congenital cytomegalovirus retinitis. The authors describe a case of recurrent bilateral congenital cytomegalovirus retinitis in an immunocompetent newborn with ganciclovir resistance successfully treated uniquely with dual therapy of intravenous ganciclovir and foscarnet and dual intravitreal injections with ganciclovir and foscarnet.

A 3-month-old boy with primary congenital glaucoma developed a transient corneal endothelial opacity after needle bleb revision with adjunctive 5-fluorouracil. This case presents a rare toxicity that, although transient, is concerning due to the potential of amblyopia. The authors review prior cases of corneal opacity associated with 5-fluorouracil.

The authors report two cases of retinoblastoma with extension along the optic nerve sheath with negative surgical margins, a pattern not considered in current classifications but suggesting a high risk of metastasis. Both patients were treated with adjuvant chemotherapy alone and remain free of extraocular disease 15 and 22 months later. [J Pediatr Ophthalmol Strabismus. 2016;53:e51-e53.].
