A 54-year-old caucasian male developed bilateral blindness during an oxygen-ozone injection for disc herniation. The visual loss (VL) was immediately followed by severe frontal headache, vomiting, and nausea. The patient underestimated the VL showing Anton's syndrome, with a complete visual recovery after 2-month follow-up. Magnetic resonance data were consistent with recent ischemic lesions in bilateral vascular territories of posterior cerebral arteries.

Fluorescein angiography (FFA) has been the gold standard to understand, diagnose and treat retinal disorders. However, being an invasive procedure it has several limitations including adverse drug reactions. Hence, noninvasive tests that can be repeated during the course of the disease are the need of the hour. The aim of our study was to compare images of patients with retinal microvasculature pathology taken from three different imaging modalities (invasive vs. noninvasive). Lesions were detected more easily and with a greater resolution of morphology on retinal function imaging (RFI) and optical coherence tomography angiography (angio-OCT)...

Bipasha Mukherjee, Md Shahid Alam
Pachydermoperiostosis (PDP) is a multisystem disorder of mesenchymal origin. It is a form of hypertrophic osteoarthropathy. The typical clinical features include pachydermia, cutis verticus gyrata, digital clubbing, and periostosis. Patients present with mechanical ptosis resulting from markedly thickened eye lids. Floppy eye lids have rarely been reported in association with PDP. We describe a rare case of PDP associated with ptosis and floppy eye lids in an adult male. Meibomian gland dysfunction was documented by meibography...

We report a case of keratitis associated with limbal relaxing incision (LRI). The patient presented with progressive loss of vision with best-corrected visual acuity 20/40. Immature cataract with 1.43D against the rule astigmatism was noted. Prophylactic topical antibiotic was administered before surgery. He underwent uneventful phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation with LRI. On the 33rd postoperative day (POD), he presented with infiltrate along LRI site with mild iritis. Corneal scraping was positive for Staphylococcus aureus...

Harsh Kumar, Sonal Dangda
This case report aims to highlight the role of photodisruptive neodymium-doped yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG) (1064 nm) laser in the treatment of bleb dysesthesia, which occurs in overhanging blebs or with perilimbal spread. Although treatment of such dysesthetic blebs with laser photocoagulation has been previously described, cases where the height of bleb precludes laser penetration, desired effect might not be seen. We herein describe a technique using a combination of photocoagulative (532 nm) and photodisruptive (1064 nm) Nd:YAG laser for a high bleb migrating nasally and inferiorly along the limbus in a 64-year-old female, causing hypotony and consequent macular edema...

Primary orbital melanoma is rare and has varied initial presentation. A 28-year-old female presented with proptosis and decreased vision in the left eye. Computed tomography scan showed an orbital mass with contrast enhancement and calcification around the optic nerve leading to a diagnosis of meningioma. The patient chose to be on observation. Loss of vision with an increase in proptosis was seen at 6 months follow-up. On surgical exploration, a well-defined pigmented mass was seen encasing the optic nerve...

PURPOSE: This study aims to describe the phenotype and genotype of two Indian families affected with X-linked choroideremia (CHM). MATERIALS AND METHODS: In these two families, the affected individuals and unaffected family members underwent a comprehensive ophthalmic examination including an optical coherence tomography (OCT) and electroretinogram. Blood samples were collected from the families for genetic analysis. Next generation sequencing (NGS) was done using a panel of 184 genes, which covered previously associated genes with retinal dystrophies...

CONTEXT: Only a few studies have assessed intraocular pressure (IOP) changes during the water drinking test (WDT) in patients with primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG). AIMS: The aim of this study is to investigate IOP changes during WDT in patients with PACG versus primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). SETTINGS AND DESIGN: This was a prospective and single tertiary center study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: PACG and POAG patients (n = 15 each) without prior glaucoma surgery were enrolled and subjected to WDT, wherein they consumed an amount of water proportional to their body weight within 10 min...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of deep sclerokeratodissection (DSKD), a new nonpenetrating technique in glaucoma surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective comparison between patients treated with DSKS or deep sclerectomy (DS) between 2013 and 2014. In DSKD, the first and only flap is dissected directly into clear cornea with unroofing Schlemm's canal. Beside routine clinical follow-up (visual acuity, intraocular pressure [IOP] readings, slit lamp and fundus examination), postoperative ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) investigation and quality of life (QoL) assessment were performed...

AIMS: The aim was to study the efficacy of combined therapy with reduced-fluence photodynamic therapy (RFPDT) and intravitreal bevacizumab/ranibizumab from the Indian subcontinent. SETTINGS AND DESIGN: This was a single-center, retrospective interventional study. METHODS: Thirty-five eyes of 34 patients diagnosed with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy were included. All the patients underwent RFPDT, followed by intravitreal bevacizumab/ranibizumab...

AIMS: The aim of this study was to detect Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) DNA with polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in aqueous or vitreous samples of patients suffering from choroiditis presumed to be infectious origin. SETTINGS AND DESIGN: Hospital-based, retrospective case-control study. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: In all, forty eyes of forty patients with choroiditis divided into two groups - Group A (serpiginous-like choroiditis, ampiginous choroiditis, multifocal choroiditis) and Group B (choroidal abscess, miliary tuberculosis (TB), choroidal tubercle) were analyzed retrospectively...

AIM: The aim of this study was to evaluate visual acuity and vision function before and after providing spectacles and low vision devices (LVDs) in deaf-mute students. SETTINGS: Schools for deaf-mute in West Maharashtra. METHODS: Hearing-impaired children in all special schools in Pune district underwent detailed visual acuity testing (with teachers' help), refraction, external ocular examination, and fundoscopy. Students with refractive errors and low vision were provided with spectacles and LVD...

PURPOSE: To report the anatomical and cosmetic outcome of transconjunctival dacryocystorhinostomy (TDCR) in an Asian Indian population. METHODS: TDCR was initially performed in cadaver eyes followed by patients with primary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO). This was a prospective noncomparative case series of all consecutive TDCRs performed between April 2013 and June 2015. Outcome measures were anatomical patency, epiphora, presence of diplopia, aesthetic outcome, and health status...

BACKGROUND: We assessed the visual functioning of the children with special needs in Oman between 2009 and 2012. We present the methods of assessing different visual functions, outcomes, and interventions carried out to improve their functioning. METHODS: Optometrists assessed visual functions of children of "Day care centres" in Oman. Experts further assessed them and provided low vision care. Ocular movements, refractive corrections, near, distance, contrast color, motion, field of vision, and cognitive visual function test results were noted...
