BACKGROUND/AIMS: Glyceraldehyde-derived advanced glycation end products (glycer-AGE; also called Toxic-AGE [TAGE]) play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of diabetic angiopathy. However, the relationships between vitreous glycer-AGE levels and diabetic retinopathy (DR) severity, and between glycer-AGE levels and the levels of other angiogenic factors remain unknown. We investigated the correlation between levels of vitreous biomarkers, including glycer-AGE and angiogenic factors (vascular endothelial growth factor [VEGF], interleukin [IL]-8, leptin, placental growth factor [PlGF], endoglin, and fibroblast growth factor [FGF]-2) in patients with DR, using three DR staging groups...

PURPOSE: To study the effects of repeated intravitreal injection of anti-VEGF drug bevacizumab on the vitreoretinal interface (VRI). METHODS: Patients undergoing intravitreal injection of bevacizumab were enrolled. Eyes with media haze, uveitis, high myopia, history of cataract surgery or laser capsulotomy in last 6 months and complicated pseudophakia were excluded. VRI evaluation was done monthly for a minimum of 6 months. The nature and timing of the change(s) event was recorded...

Vinod Kumar, Devesh Kumawat
AIMS: To report multi-modal imaging findings in a case of butterfly pattern dystrophy of retinal pigment epithelium. METHODS: A middle-aged female with butterfly pattern dystrophy, who presented with progressive loss of vision, was examined using coloured fundus photographs, short wave autofluorescence, swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT), fundus fluorescein angiography and enface optical coherence tomography. RESULTS: Multi-modal imaging was useful in the characterization of the various disease features...

PURPOSE: To assess the levels of retinal and choroidal involvement in initial-onset birdshot retinochoroiditis (BRC) and Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease, two stromal choroiditis entities. METHODS: This retrospective study included patients diagnosed with BRC and VKH, seen during initial-onset disease at the Centre for Ophthalmic Specialized Care, Lausanne, Switzerland. Angiographic signs were quantified, using an established dual fluorescein angiography (FA) and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) scoring system for uveitis, and the FA/ICGA score ratios were compared between diseases...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the magnitude and axis orientation of the anterior, posterior, and total corneal astigmatism in normal healthy eyes of an Iranian population. METHODS: In a prospective cross-sectional study, ophthalmic and anterior segment parameters of 153 healthy eyes of 153 subjects were evaluated by Galilei dual Scheimpflug analyzer. The magnitude and axis orientation [with-the-rule (WTR), against-the-rule (ATR), and oblique] of the anterior, posterior, and total corneal astigmatism measurements (ACA, PCA, and TCA) were compared according to the age, sex, and other ophthalmic parameters...

PURPOSE: Proliferative vitreoretinopathy in the inferior retina remains clinically challenging. Heavier-than-water intraocular tamponades have been developed to improve inferior tamponading properties, and their chemical compositions have been substantially improved over the years, in parallel with developments in vitrectomy instrumentation and surgical techniques. Herein we present an updated review of the clinical use of standard formulations and HSO, focusing on analysis of the intraocular inflammation associated with endotamponade agents, and comparison of the adverse effects of these agents on the physical and biological properties of the eye...

PURPOSE: To confirm the prediction of emmetropization feedback theory that myopia can be prevented by correcting the hyperopia of a child at risk of becoming myopic. METHODS: We conducted such myopia prevention treatment with twins at risk. Their hyperopia was partially corrected by one half at age 7 and in subsequent years until age 16. RESULTS: Hyperopia progressively decreased in all eyes as expected. None of the twins developed myopia...

Purtscher-like retinopathy, a rare manifestation of systemic thrombotic microangiopathy, is a potentially visually debilitating condition with no effective proven treatment. Distinct pathogenic pathways have been proposed as etiological factors. We revisit the etiology of Purtscher-like retinopathy based on the rapid response and profound visual improvement after initiation of systemic intravenous eculizumab, an inhibitor of the complement cascade, in a patient with Purtscher-like retinopathy secondary to familial atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) due to a mutation in complement factor H...

OBJECTIVE: This retrospective cohort study utilized 3 imaging modalities to analyze quantitatively reticular pseudodrusen (RPD) area changes in eyes that progressed from early to late age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS: Subjects with AMD, unilateral choroidal neovascularization (CNV), and early AMD with RPD in the fellow eye (the study eye) were included. The study eyes underwent indocyanine green angiography (ICGA), near-infrared reflectance (NIR-R), and short-wavelength autofluorescence (AF) imaging of the macula at baseline and at follow-up...
