PURPOSE: The aim was to determine the distribution and associated factors of accommodative amplitude (AA) in six- to 12-year-old children and compare the results with those calculated using Hofstetter's formula. METHODS: In a cross-sectional study in 2015, random sampling was done from urban and rural populations of Shahroud, northern Iran. Participating schoolchildren were examined for manifest, cycloplegic and subjective refraction, as well as uncorrected vision and visual acuity...

BACKGROUND: Measurement of tear film stability is commonly used to give an indication of tear film quality but a number of non-invasive techniques exists within the clinical setting. This study sought to compare three non-invasive tear film stability measurement techniques: instrument-mounted wide-field white light clinical interferometry, instrument-mounted keratoscopy and hand-held keratoscopy. METHODS: Twenty-two subjects were recruited in a prospective, randomised, masked, cross-over study...

Benjamin Kj Host, Angus W Turner, Josephine Muir
BACKGROUND: Teleophthalmology, particularly real-time video consultation, holds great potential in Australia and similar countries worldwide, where geography, population and medical workforce distribution make it difficult to provide specialist eye services outside of major cities. Assessment and referrals from rural optometrists are vital to the success of teleophthalmology. While there is good evidence for the efficacy of such services, there is limited evidence for patient satisfaction with video consultation...

REVIEW
Casey Hamm, Diana Shechtman, Sherrol Reynolds
BACKGROUND: Torpedo maculopathy is a rare, congenital maculopathy classically diagnosed funduscopically as a 'torpedo-shaped' lesion located temporal to the fovea. This case describes a torpedo maculopathy with non-classic optical coherence tomographic (OCT) findings and collaborative OCT angiographic (OCTA) findings. CASE REPORT: A 60-year-old Caucasian woman presented with a history of longstanding distortion and paracentral scotoma of the right eye. She had a positive family history of age-related macular degeneration...

PURPOSE: The aim was to compare the optical coherence tomographic (OCT) parameters of subjects with and without a family history of glaucoma to determine whether positive family history has an impact on retinal nerve fibre layer and ganglion cell complex analyses. METHODS: Forty eyes of 40 normal subjects with a proven positive family history (first-degree relatives) for primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) (study group) and age-matched 40 eyes of 40 control subjects without a family history for glaucoma (control group) were enrolled...

BACKGROUND: The shape of the human lens changes from almost spherical at birth to ellipsoid due to a decrease in sagittal thickness and an increase in equatorial diameter during the first two decades of life. Both dimensions increase thereafter. This study was undertaken to determine the reason for the change. METHODS: Published refractive index gradients, from 20 lenses aged from seven to 82 years, were used to calculate the protein contents of concentric shells of fibre cells in human lenses...

REVIEW
Gurpinderjeet Kaur, Scott A Anthony
Small suspicious choroidal neoplasms commonly present a diagnostic challenge in primary eye-care clinics, where they are most likely to present. Differentiating benign from malignant choroidal neoplasms is essential for facilitating early diagnosis and treatment, potentially decreasing the risk of metastasis and vision loss in some cases. The purpose of this review is to describe the clinical, spectral-domain optical coherence tomography and fundus autofluorescence features of suspicious choroidal neoplasms in a case series of patients presenting to a primary eye-care clinic at the Veterans Health Administration, Cleveland, Ohio, USA...

BACKGROUND: The aim was to analyse the effect of peripheral depth cues on accommodation in Badal optometers. METHODS: Monocular refractions at 0.17 and 5.00 D of accommodative stimulus were measured with the PowerRef II autorefractor (Plusoptix Inc., Atlanta, Georgia, USA). Subjects looked (randomly) at four different scenes, one real scene comprising familiar objects at different depth planes (Real) and three virtual scenes comprising different two-dimensional pictures seen through a Badal lens...

BACKGROUND: PROSE (prosthetic replacement of ocular surface ecosystem) device is a custom-designed, corneal vaulting scleral contact lens, which is used in the treatment of irregular corneal conditions to improve vision and comfort. The present study aimed at assessing the success of the PROSE device in an Indian scenario in terms of change in quality of life and to understand the handling issues related to the device use. METHODS: Thirty-two subjects with various irregular corneal conditions meeting the inclusion criteria were included in the study...

Hun Lee, Minseo Kim, Si Yoon Park, Eung Kweon Kim, Kyoung Yul Seo, Tae-Im Kim
BACKGROUND: The aim was to investigate the efficacy of mechanical meibomian gland squeezing combined with eyelid scrubs and warm compresses in participants with moderate and severe meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). METHODS: In this prospective, uncontrolled, open label, intervention study, 32 eyes of 32 participants with moderate and severe MGD were treated with mechanical squeezing of meibomian glands in combination with eyelid scrubs and warm compresses. We evaluated tear film break-up time (TBUT), corneal and conjunctival fluorescein staining scores, biomicroscopic examination of lid margins and meibomian glands, Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) questionnaire and tear film lipid layer thickness determined via an interferometer before initiating treatment and after one month of treatment...

BACKGROUND: The aim was to profile transient accommodative axial length changes from early adulthood to advanced presbyopia and to determine whether any differences exist between the responses of myopic and emmetropic individuals. METHODS: Ocular biometry was measured by the LenStar biometer (Haag-Streit, Switzerland) in response to zero, 3.00 and 4.50 D accommodative stimuli in 35 emmetropes and 37 myopes, aged 18 to 60 years. All results were corrected to reduce errors arising from the increase in crystalline lens thickness with accommodation...

BACKGROUND: The use of advanced imaging in clinical practice is emerging and the use of this technology by optometrists in assessing patients with age-related macular degeneration is of interest. Therefore, this study explored contemporary, self-reported patterns of practice regarding age-related macular degeneration diagnosis and management using a cross-sectional survey of optometrists in Australia and New Zealand. METHODS: Practising optometrists were surveyed on four key areas, namely, demographics, clinical skills and experience, assessment and management of age-related macular degeneration...

PURPOSE: The aim was to investigate the effect of axial length on full-field electroretinogram (ffERG) and multifocal electroretinogram (mfERG) in young Indian subjects. METHODS: One hundred subjects (44 male) with refractive errors from +0.50 to -18.00 DS and no myopic retinopathy underwent axial length measurement. ffERG was measured, which included scotopic and photopic responses according to International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision (ISCEV) guidelines...
