BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to investigate the retinal structure in different grades of myopia and correlate it with the functional changes detected with multifocal electroretinogram (mf-ERG) and try to show the most important determining factors. METHODS: The study included 80 participants divided into four groups according to their spherical equivalent refractive error, namely, emmetropia (within ± 0.50 D), mild myopia group (greater than -0.50 to -3...

PURPOSE: The aim was to determine the prevalence of convergence insufficiency and its relationship with age, gender and refractive error in a population-based study. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, all residents over one year old in Mashhad city, in the north east of Iran, were sampled through random stratified cluster sampling. After selecting samples and their participation in the study, they all had eye examinations including the measurement of visual acuity, refraction, binocular vision assessment, including cover test, measurement of near point of convergence and fusional vergences and finally, slitlamp biomicroscopy...

BACKGROUND: The aim was to evaluate the effect of diquafosol on tear film parameters and corneal aberrations after cataract surgery. METHODS: This retrospective, comparative, observational case series included patients who underwent cataract surgery with or without peri-operative use of diquafosol three per cent ophthalmic solution. Patients in group I (31 eyes) were treated with diquafosol three per cent ophthalmic solution six times a day from one week before surgery to three months after surgery...

BACKGROUND: Because corneal infiltrative events (CIEs) may result from bacterial components on contact lenses, which can come from contaminated lens cases, we evaluated the biocidal efficacy of five multipurpose solutions against Gram-negative commonly isolated and CIE-associated organisms. METHODS: Of the multipurpose solutions tested, one contained polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB)/polyquaternium-1 (PQ-1; Bausch & Lomb Incorporated: Biotrue), one contained alexidine dihydrochloride (alexidine)/PQ-1 (AMO: RevitaLens OcuTec) and three contained PQ-1/myristamidopropyl dimethylamine (MAPD; Alcon: Opti-Free PureMoist, PQ-1/MAPD-1; Opti-Free RepleniSH, PQ-1/MAPD-2; Opti-Free Express, PQ-1/MAPD-3)...

PURPOSE: Amplitude of accommodation varies with race and ethnicity and Hofstetter's equations are commonly used in Nigeria to calculate expected amplitude of accommodation for clinical purposes. The aim of this study was to present normative values for amplitude of accommodation for Nigerian children and to compare the measured values with those calculated using Hofstetter's equations. METHODS: A total of 688 children aged six to 16 years from three selected cities in Nigeria were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of care solutions on contact lens in vivo wettability using Doane's interferometric technique. METHODS: Thirteen subjects (aged 26.6 ± 6.3 years) participated for contact lens wettability evaluation after soaking in five care solutions namely Opti-Free EverMoist (now called puremoist), Opti-Free Express (Alcon), COMPLETE (AMO), ReNu and Biotrue (Bausch & Lomb). A new pair of lenses was soaked in the solutions for eight hours (prior to wear) or taken directly from pack solutions (as control) and worn by the subjects...

BACKGROUND: Older adults with visual loss have high rates of depression, restricted participation and reduced quality of life. We sought to measure the impact of lessons in the Alexander technique on vision-related emotional and social well-being, as secondary outcomes to a study on improving physical functioning in this population. METHODS: This is a single-blind randomised controlled trial. One hundred and twenty community-dwelling adults aged 50 to 90 years with visual impairments were randomised to either 12 Alexander lessons over 12 weeks and usual care or usual care...

BACKGROUND: The aim was to evaluate the effect of the tilted optic disc on the visual field in highly myopic eyes. METHODS: A total of 58 eyes from 58 highly myopic individuals underwent detailed ophthalmic examination and were categorised into two groups according to the presence of a tilted optic disc. The visual field of 20 eyes (mean age of 28.95 ± 7.22 years) with tilted optic discs were compared with 38 eyes (mean age of 27.87 ± 6.08 years) of control subjects without tilted optic discs using the 30-2 SITA standard protocol with a Humphrey Field Analyzer - HFA II-i...

OBJECTIVES: The aim was to evaluate the effectiveness of topical cyclopentolate following pterygium surgery for post-operative ocular pain. METHODS: All participants had nasal pterygium and underwent pterygium excision and conjunctival autografting with fibrin glue. Participants were randomised into two groups. Participants in group 1 received one per cent cyclopentolate eye drops and artificial tears upon completing surgery and were prescribed self-administered drops three times daily for three days, while participants in group 2 received a control (artificial tears) in a manner identical to group 1...

BACKGROUND: The aim was to evaluate the turbidity and thickness of the post-lens tear layer and its effect on visual quality in patients with keratoconus after the beginning of lens wear and before lens removal at the end of eight hours. METHODS: Twenty-six patients with keratoconus (aged 36.95 ± 8.95 years) participated voluntarily in the study. The sample was divided into two groups: patients with intrastromal corneal ring (ICRS group) and patients without ICRS (KC group)...

PURPOSE: LATISSE is marketed for the treatment of hypotrichosis (loss of eyelashes), using a prostamide analogue and preserved with benzalkonium chloride, which is an effective preservative; however, it also causes irritation to the ocular surface. LATISSE is applied to the lid margin; however, with the blink, some solution may fall onto the ocular surface. The objective of this study was to assess the effects of LATISSE on the ocular surface over two months. METHODS: Non-dry eye participants interested in eyelash lengthening were invited to a prospective uncontrolled, open-label clinical study using LATISSE for two months...

BACKGROUND: Non-penetrating ocular injuries from badminton shuttlecocks can result in severe damage and life-long complications. This case series highlights the morbidity of such injuries, particularly in regard to post-traumatic glaucoma. METHODS: This is a retrospective case series of 12 patients with shuttlecock-related blunt eye injuries sustained during badminton play without eye protection. By approaching colleagues through conference presentations and networking, the authors have attempted to gather all known cases of shuttlecock ocular injury managed in tertiary ocular emergency departments or private ophthalmological clinics in Victoria and New South Wales, Australia in 2015...

BACKGROUND: The eye-care seeking behaviour of parents for their children has a role to play in increasing or reducing the prevalence of childhood blindness. In Nigeria, little or no work has been done in this area. Hence, this study was carried out with a view to assisting eye-care professionals plan better program regimens and also to help them identify various elements that either facilitate or hinder eye-care seeking behaviour of parents for their school age children. METHODS: This was a qualitative narrative study...
