Deepak Gupta, Jared Ching, Paul E Tornambe
The successful detection of retinal breaks is a critical step in rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) surgery in order to prevent persistent/recurrent RRDs. Not all retinal breaks causing retinal detachments are obvious. Retinal breaks may be obscured due to opacities that are either anterior-segment related, lens related or posterior-segment related. Rules to identify breaks based on sub-retinal fluid (SRF) configuration are more difficult to apply in pseudophakic, aphakic, encircled eyes, and eyes with repeat detachments and those with proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR)...

Corneal dystrophies are categorized according to the International Committee for Classification of Corneal Dystrophies (IC3D) classification, and their treatment depends on the affected structures and layer of the cornea. Therefore, estimating the depth and extent of the morphological changes due to the specific dystrophy is crucial when deciding between different treatment options. Besides superficial laser treatments and penetrating keratoplasty, minimal invasive lamellar keratoplasties such as Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty), deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty, or Descemet stripping automated keratoplasty have become increasingly popular to exchange the specific opaque layers in dystrophic eyes...

Human corneal endothelium has long been thought to be a non-mitotic cell layer with no endogenous reparative potential. Pathologies that damage endothelial function result in corneal decompensation and, if untreated, blindness. The mainstay of treatment involves partial or complete corneal replacement, amounting to 40% of all corneal transplants performed worldwide. We summarize the case reports describing complications post-operatively in the form of (sub)total graft detachment and those resulting in post-operative bare stroma...

REVIEW
Edward J Wladis, Alejandro P Adam
While rosacea is a common entity with significant cosmetic, socioeconomic, and vision-threatening impacts, this disorder remains incurable. Furthermore, until quite recently, many of the therapeutic options for rosacea had not been assessed through rigorous clinical testing with meaningful outcome measures. Nonetheless, new medical and surgical interventions that have been validated in well-designed trials hold the promise of treating rosacea more effectively. Furthermore, recent enhancements in our understanding of the cellular and molecular biology offer highly translational insights that will hopefully lead to the development of new treatment options for rosacea...

Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK) is a selective replacement of dysfunctional endothelium with healthy donor Descemet's membrane and endothelium. Although the donor preparation and surgical methods still remain a challenge, DMEK is gaining popularity in terms of early rehabilitation and visual outcomes. New and improved donor preparation techniques like pre-stripped DMEK tissues are taken up rapidly due to less manipulation that is required in the surgical theatre. Donor graft delivery in the recipient eye has also been improved due to new products like pre-stripped and pre-loaded membranes...

REVIEW
Morten Jørgensen, Steffen Heegaard
Tumors that invade the orbit are uncommon. The majority are meningiomas arising from the sphenoid ridge (66 %). Others are bone and cartilage tumors arising from the surrounding bones surrounding the orbit, pituitary adenomas, and epithelial tumors arising from the paranasal sinuses and nasal cavity. Meningiomas occur more often in females, whereas epithelial tumors have a predilection for males. Meningiomas and epithelial tumors typically present in the sixth decade of life, whereas bone tumors tend to affect individuals in their third decade of life...

REVIEW

Technologic improvements in cataract surgery have not only improved visual outcomes, but also have minimized intraoperative and postoperative pain. We review the mechanisms, risk factors, and management of intraoperative and postoperative pain. Summaries of less common sources of physiologic pain have been included to reinforce recognition of when pain represents an expected physiologic reaction to surgery as opposed to signaling a more serious complication. We also discuss various current and emerging anesthetic and analgesic modalities...

We discuss new approaches to the early detection of keratoconus (KCN) and recent investigations regarding the nature of its pathophysiology. We review the current evidence for its complex genetics and evaluate the presently identified genes/loci and potential candidate gene/loci. In addition, we highlight current research methodologies that may be used to further elucidate the pathogenesis of KCN.

A 54-year-old white man presented with a "blind spot" temporally in his left eye. Best-corrected visual acuity in the affected eye was 20/20 and Humphrey visual field revealed an enlarged blind spot. Funduscopic examination revealed subtle peripapillary pigmentary changes corresponding to a well-demarcated peripapillary region of hyper- and hypoautofluorescence on fundus autofluorescence (FAF). Outer retinal degenerative changes were detected on spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). A diagnosis of Acute zonal occult outer retinopathy (AZOOR) was made based on clinical history and imaging studies...

Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) is a common idiopathic retinal disease characterized by central vision loss from serous detachment of the neurosensory retina, serous pigment epithelial detachments, and leakage of fluid through the retinal pigment epithelium into the sub-retinal space. The concept of an association between exogenous glucocorticoid use and CSC is widely accepted among ophthalmologists. Here we review the evidence for and against such an association. This evidence includes two large, case-control studies that found strong associations, and a smaller, population-based study that found no association...

Glaucoma is a progressive and chronic neurodegenerative disorder characterised by damage to the inner layers of the retina and deformation of the optic nerve head. The degeneration of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) and their axons results in an irreversible loss of vision and is correlated with increasing age. Extracellular matrix (ECM) changes related to natural ageing generates a stiffer extracellular environment throughout the body. Altered age-associated ocular tissue stiffening plays a major role in a significant number of ophthalmic pathologies...

Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) is a new imaging modality that provides non-invasive characterization and quantification of the microvasculature in different retinal conditions. The purpose of this paper is to give an updated review of the features of dry age-related macular degeneration investigated by means of new generation OCT-A. We searched PubMed and Medline using the terms "optical coherence tomography angiography" associated with "age-related macular degeneration", "drusen", "reticular pseudodrusen," and "geographic atrophy" and reviewed publications up to January, 2017...

Zika virus was considered an innocent pathogen while restricted to the African and Asian population; however, after reaching the Americas in March 2015, it became a global threat. Despite usually causing mild or no symptoms in infected adults, Zika virus displays a different behavior toward fetuses. When infected during gestation, fetuses have their immature neural cells killed by the virus and consequently have devastating findings at birth. In the past year the drastic effects of Zika virus infection in newborns include neurological, ophthalmological, audiological, and skeletal abnormalities...

An 87-year-old woman presented 1 month after uneventful cataract surgery with ipsilateral corneal edema. She was diagnosed with pseudophakic bullous keratopathy and scheduled for endothelial transplantation. However, a few days later, she presented with bilateral corneal edema, dilated pupils and further reduction of visual acuity. Neuro-Ophthalmic evaluation disclosed a bilateral ocular ischemic syndrome causing complete visual loss. Temporal artery biopsy was consistent with GCA. Corneal decompensation should be considered as a rare presentation of GCA, that ophthalmologists should suspect in any case of unilateral or bilateral ocular ischemic syndrome...

Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a new, noninvasive imaging technique that generates real-time volumetric data on chorioretinal vasculature and its flow pattern. With the advent of high-speed optical coherence tomography, established enface chorioretinal segmentation, and efficient algorithms, OCTA generates images that resemble an angiogram. The principle of OCTA involves determining the change in backscattering between consecutive B-scans and then attributing the differences to the flow of erythrocytes through retinal blood vessels...

Microperimetry is a novel technique for assessing visual function and appears particularly suitable for age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Compared to standard automated perimetry (SAP), microperimetry offers several unique features. It simultaneously images the fundus, incorporates an eye tracking system to correct the stimulus location for fixation loss, and identifies any preferred retinal loci. A systematic review of microperimetry in the assessment of visual function in AMD identified 680 articles...
