PURPOSE: Direct endobulbar illumination during vitreoretinal surgery causes light-induced retinal damage known as phototoxicity. Spectral filters have been proposed to eliminate hazardous wavelengths from the emission spectrum before entering the eye. The purpose of our paper is to review advances in vitreoretinal surgery, focusing on intraoperative light filters. METHODS: A PubMed and Medline database search was carried out using the terms "spectral filters" associated with "vitreoretinal surgery," "phototoxicity," and "vitrectomy...

Unrecognized visual field loss is caused by a range of blinding eye conditions as well as serious brain diseases. The commonest cause of asymptomatic visual field loss is glaucoma. No screening tools have been proven cost-effective. Damato Multifixation Campimetry Online (DMCO), an inexpensive online test, has been evaluated as a future cost-beneficial tool to detect glaucoma. To further validate DMCO, this study aimed to test DMCO in a preselected population with neurological visual field loss. METHODS: The study design was an evaluation of a diagnostic test...
