BACKGROUND: To evaluate the impact on the ocular surface of a daily disposable hydrogel contact lens with high water content compared with two silicone hydrogel daily disposable lenses of lower water content. METHODS: The hydrogel lens assessed was made from nesofilcon A and the silicone hydrogel lenses were made of delefilcon A and stenfilcon A. Contact lens thickness was measured to assess material stability during daily wear, and ocular surface parameters such as tear film osmolarity, tear meniscus area and central corneal thickness were also assessed...

Huang Wu, Shu Liu, Ruiqing Wang
PURPOSE: To evaluate stereoacuity using a combination of a phoropter and two 4K smartphones. METHODS: A stereopsis measurement system was established using a phoropter (Topcon VT-10) and two Sony 4K smartphones (Sony Xperia Z5 Premium Dual E6883). A total of 154 subjects (69 children and 85 adults) were enrolled for evaluation using this system and subsequent comparison with the Fly Stereo Acuity test. RESULTS: There was a high level of agreement between the two methods using Bland-Altman statistical analysis (children group, 95 per cent limits of agreement ±0...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to evaluate the diagnosis, staging, imaging and management preferences, and the effect of advanced imaging among practising optometrists in age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS: Up to 20 case vignettes (computer-based case simulations) were completed online in a computer laboratory in random order by 81 practising optometrists of Australia. Each case presented findings from a randomly selected patient seen previously at the Centre for Eye Health for a macular assessment in the following order: case history, preliminary tests and colour fundus photography...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of refractive errors and their association with glycaemic control among adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in eastern China. METHODS: A community-based survey, including 913 adults with T2DM aged 30 to 89 years, was conducted. Refractive error was assessed by autorefraction, after which subjective refraction was performed. Ocular biometric parameters were measured by non-contact partial coherence laser interferometry...

PURPOSE: To investigate re-innervation in the implanted lenticule, as well as changes to the cornea, after correcting hyperopia with an autologous implantation of a lenticule obtained through small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE). METHODS: This study retrospectively analysed re-innervation in the implanted lenticule, as well as microscopic morphological changes in the corneal architecture of the recipient cornea in five patients (with myopia in one eye and hyperopia in the contralateral eye) who received SMILE in the myopic eye and femtosecond laser in situ keratomileusis (FS-LASIK) combined with lenticule implantation in the contralateral hyperopic eye...

PURPOSE: To identify the need for optical intervention including spectacles and low vision devices (LVDs) in children attending the only school for the blind in Eritrea. METHODS: A total of 92 children were examined using the World Health Organization Prevention of Blindness program form for the recording of children with blindness and vision impairment. Examination included distance and near visual acuity (VA), refraction, trial of LVDs and evaluation of anterior and posterior segments...

BACKGROUND: Contact lens fittings in a hospital-based practice are different from those in private practices because of specialised conditions. Few studies have been published on material preferences of such wearers, especially in long-term wearers. The aim of this study is to document contact lens prescribing trends in a hospital-based practice among long-term lens wearers and to identify their demographic profile. METHODS: Subjects reporting to a contact lens clinic of a tertiary eye-care centre in India from 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2014, with a minimum of five years of lens wear, were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: Whether prism, especially base-up prism, affects the area of the retina used for fixation in a patient with central scotoma has been a controversial subject for 35 years. Our pilot study employed microperimetry to evaluate the effect of base-up prism on the fixation locus, or preferred retinal locus (PRL), in subjects with central scotoma. METHODS: We used a microperimeter to assess the PRL in 13 visually impaired subjects with central scotoma under four conditions: no lens, a lens with no prism (control lens), 6(Δ) base-up, and 10(Δ) base-up...

BACKGROUND: Evaluation of retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL), ganglion cell layer (GCL) and choroidal thickness (CT) with optical coherence tomography (OCT) in chronic migraine patients, to compare with healthy controls. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Ninety-four eyes of 47 chronic migraine patients (Group 1) and 68 eyes of 34 healthy individuals (Group 2) were included in this prospective case-control study. The right and left eyes were separately evaluated. Mean peripapillary RNFL thicknesses, mean GCL measured from superior and inferior quadrants, and mean CT were measured at three different regions (central, 500 μm nasal and temporal region of the fovea)...

PURPOSE: To investigate the degree of visual acuity in workers with intellectual disabilities and the impact of vision on their working conditions. METHODS: We recruited 224 workers (mean age 43.77 years, SD ± 12.96; range, 19-72 years) from a workshop for those with intellectual disabilities, to participate in a vision examination program. The assessment consisted of objective refraction, visual acuity, ocular motility, near-point of convergence, cover/uncover test, stereo acuity and colour perception...

BACKGROUND: The aim was to make a real-world comparison of the efficacy of ranibizumab, dexamethasone and grid laser treatments in macular oedema due to branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). METHODS: Forty-four eyes of 44 consecutive patients with macular oedema secondary to BRVO were included. Treatment arms comprised standard care (StCARE, n = 15), intravitreal ranibizumab (RNB, n = 14) and dexamethasone implant (DEX, n = 15). No rescue laser was performed in DEX and RNB groups...

BACKGROUND: Belmonte Ocular Pain Meter (OPM) air jet aesthesiometry overcomes some of the limitations of the Cochet-Bonnet aesthesiometer. However, for true mechanical corneal sensitivity measurement, the airflow stimulus temperature of the aesthesiometer must equal ocular surface temperature (OST), to avoid additional response from temperature-sensitive nerves. The aim of this study was to determine: (A) the stimulus temperature inducing no or least change in OST; and (B) to evaluate if OST remains unchanged with different stimulus durations and airflow rates...

BACKGROUND: Norrie disease (ND) is a rare, X-linked recessive disorder with the main characteristic of early childhood blindness. The aim of the present study was to identify the genetic cause of the disease and the phenotypic characteristics of the patients in an Iranian family with four affected males with ND. METHODS: Norrie disease pseudoglioma (NDP) gene was sequenced and clinical examination was performed on patients. RESULTS: A GG dinucleotide insertion in exon 3 (c...
