PURPOSE: To describe a proportion of uveitis and to analyse differences between immune-related uveitis and infectious uveitis groups. METHODS: A retrospective study of 458 uveitis patients were categorized into immune-related uveitis, infectious uveitis, masquerade, and undetermined groups. The pattern of inflammation was described. Subgroup analysis was performed to compare pattern differences between immune-related uveitis and infectious uveitis groups. RESULTS: The most common location of inflammation was the anterior eye segment...

PURPOSE: To report on the ability to perform corneal crosslinking (CXL) under local anaesthesia for the treatment of keratoconus in patients with Down syndrome. METHODS: Nine eyes of seven patients with both keratoconus and Down syndrome were scheduled for an epithelium-off CXL procedure under local anaesthesia. Exclusion criteria were a corneal thickness under 400 µm and the presence of corneal scars. A standardized clinical decision tool was used to estimate patient cooperation and the likelihood for a successful procedure under local rather than general anaesthesia...

PURPOSE: To assess the outcome of patients with choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to punctate inner choroidopathy (PIC) receiving intravitreal anti-VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) injections. METHODS: Sixteen eyes of 16 patients diagnosed with CNV secondary to PIC were retrospectively assessed.

Mustafa Gok, Hasan Burhanettin Kapti
PURPOSE: To investigate the short-term effect of single intravitreal aflibercept injection on retrobulbar blood flow in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD). METHODS: Twenty eyes of 20 patients with nAMD scheduled for single intravitreal aflibercept (Eylea(®)) injection and 20 fellow eyes (uninjected) were enrolled in this prospective interventional study. The hemodynamic parameters of the ophthalmic artery (OA), central retinal artery (CRA) and posterior ciliary artery (PCA) comprising peak systolic velocity (PSV), end-diastolic velocity (EDV), and resistive index (RI) were measured by using color Doppler ultrasonography (CDU) in both injected and uninjected fellow eyes at baseline and 1 week after the injection...

PURPOSE: To describe a technique for intracorneal application of voriconazole into the supradescemetic space in a case of deep recalcitrant Candida parapsilosis keratitis of a penetrating cornea graft. METHODS: A deep intracorneal incision reaching the center of the corneal infiltrate was created with a 20-gauge MVR blade. Then, a 27-gauge hydrodissection cannula was inserted deep into the corneal pocket, and 0.1 ml of voriconazole 0.5 mg/ml was injected until a bullous detachment of Descemet membrane (DM) covered 1/3 of the graft's area...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) compared with descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK). METHODS: Databases including PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library were searched to find studies that compared DSAEK and DMEK outcomes. Efficacy parameters were the postoperative best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and spherical equivalent (SE). Safety parameters were postoperative endothelial cell loss (ECL), air injection (rebubbling), graft failure, graft rejection, and high intraocular pressure (IOP)...

PURPOSE: To examine peripheral electroneuromyographic findings in patients with ocular pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PEX) and to compare them controls without PEX. METHODS: A case-control study design was used to examine 31 patients with PEX and compare the findings with those of 31 age- and sex-matched healthy controls. All patients underwent complete ophthalmologic examination that included peripheral electroneuromyography examination. Motor and sensorial nerve conduction of the median, ulnar, tibial, peroneal, and sural nerve and the sympathetic skin response were measured...

PURPOSE: To assess the treatment outcome of switching from ranibizumab to aflibercept intravitreal injections in patients with macular oedema secondary to central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). METHODS: A prospective interventional study was conducted in a tertiary retina service in Leicester Royal Infirmary, UK, where patients with CRVO and associated macular oedema were recruited. First-line treatment involved three monthly ranibizumab injections. Non-responders were defined as patients who despite a minimum of three consecutive injections had persistent intraretinal fluid one month after the last injection...

REVIEW

PURPOSE: To describe a standard approach to manage tear dysfunction (TD), in order to obtain a clinically favourable outcome. TD is a highly prevalent, yet largely underdiagnosed, condition that affects from 5 to 30% of the population above 50 years old. Left untreated, TD is associated with eye discomfort and ocular surface disease, substantially affecting quality of life. Although the prevalence of this problem is increasing significantly, a standard approach to its prevention and treatment is not available yet...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to determine plasma thiol-disulphide homoeostasis in patients with age-related cataract (ARC) and compare the results of the patients with healthy subjects. Plasma malondialdehyde (MDA) levels and catalase (CAT) activity were also investigated. METHODS: The study included 53 cataract patients and 52 healthy volunteers. Native thiol-disulphide exchanges were determined using a novel and automated method. CAT activity was determined using the method described by Aebi, and MDA levels were calculated using the thiobarbituric acid method...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the inter-device agreement among the Goldmann applanation tonometer (GAT), iCare and Icare PRO rebound tonometers, non-contact tonometer (NCT), and Tonopen XL tonometer. METHODS: Sixty healthy elderly subjects were enrolled. The intraocular pressure (IOP) in each subject's right eye was measured thrice using each of the five tonometers. Intra-device agreement was evaluated by calculating intraclass correlation coefficients (ICCs). Inter-device agreement was evaluated by ICC and Bland-Altman analyses...

AIM: This study was to investigate the anti-angiogenic effect of hexahydrocurcumin (HHC) to evaluate gene (p-basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF)-SAINT-18 & p-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-SAINT-18 complex)-induced corneal neovascularization (CorNV) in rats. METHODS: CorNV was induced in 24 eyes of 24 rats. Four groups (Group A: 0 μg, B: 0.01 μg, C: 0.1 μg, and D: 1 μg) of HHC were prepared and implanted into the rat subconjunctival substantia propria 1...

PURPOSE: To investigate the usability and the reproducibility of the tear meniscus values via swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) and the conventional slit lamp microscope method with a graticule. METHODS: The right eye was examined in 90 healthy adult subjects who were grouped according to age (group 1: 20-39 years; group 2: 40-59 years; group 3: ≥60 years). The tear meniscus height (TMH) and tear meniscus area were measured using SS-OCT and TMH by the slit lamp microscope method...

Takayasu arteritis (TA) is a systemic vasculitis of unknown etiology that affects the aorta and its primary branches or large arteries in the proximal upper or lower extremities. Ocular manifestations of TA include microaneurysm formation, small-vessel dilation, arteriovenous anastomosis, retinal ischemia, and neovascular glaucoma. We herein report a case involving a 23-year-old Asian woman who presented with isolated acute anterior ischemic optic neuropathy and was initially misdiagnosed with optic neuritis...
