Y Ichikawa, Y Imamura, M Ishida
PurposeTo determine the correlation of the degree of aniseikonia with the retinal displacements and metamorphopsia in patients that have undergone successful epiretinal membrane (ERM) surgery.MethodsSubjects were 28 eyes with an ERM in 28 patients. The New Aniseikonia Test (NAT) and M-CHARTS were used to quantify the degree of preoperative and postoperative aniseikonia and metamorphopsia. We also evaluated the distance between the intersections of 2 sets of retinal vessels situated vertically or horizontally by using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) images in 28 patients...

PurposeTo evaluate the topographic, tomographic, and densitometric properties of patients with pellucid marginal degeneration (PMD) and inferior keratoconus.Patients and methodsRetrospective, comparative case series. Forty-seven eyes of 32 patients with crab claw patterns were identified from 2751 patients with corneal ectasia. They were divided into two groups, inferior keratoconus and PMD, based on clinical findings. The topographic, tomographic, and densitometric measurements were analyzed.ResultsPMD was detected in 11 eyes of eight patients (mean age 50...

A J Connor, S P Kraft
PurposeWe present a novel variation of the traction test of the inferior oblique (IO) muscle. We demonstrate the correlation between the traction test and clinically graded IO overaction and describe the utility of this test to confirm IO weakening.MethodsWe performed a retrospective chart review on all patients who underwent IO surgery and intraoperative intorsion traction tests by a single surgeon over a 10-year period. We compared the traction test results, in 'clock hours' of freedom, before and after IO surgery...

PurposeThe aim of this study was to determine the choroidal thickness measurement values in cases with isolated growth hormone deficiency (IGHD), to compare them with the healthy control group by using enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT), and to evaluate the effect of growth hormone (GH) treatment on choroid.Patients and methodsIn this study, 23 cases who were diagnosed with IGHD as a study group and 46 healthy subjects as a control group were included. All patients and controls underwent a complete ophthalmologic examination, including an examination with EDI-OCT...

PurposeThe goal was to develop a simple model for predicting the individual risk profile for age-related macular degeneration (AMD) on the basis of genetic information, disease family history, and smoking habits.Patients and methodsThe study enrolled 151 AMD patients following specific clinical and environmental inclusion criteria: age >55 years, positive family history for AMD, presence of at least one first-degree relative affected by AMD, and smoking habits. All of the samples were genotyped for rs1061170 (CFH) and rs10490924 (ARMS2) with a TaqMan assay, using a 7500 Fast Real Time PCR device...

PurposeTo compare axial length (AL) with vitreous cavity length (VCL) in patients with keratoconus and to ascertain whether graft size can be tailored to reduce myopic refractive error in patients with keratoconus undergoing penetrating keratoplasty (PK).Patients and methodsThe AL and VCL were measured prospectively in patients with keratoconus not undergoing PK (Group 1) and in normal phakic, emmetropic individuals (Group 2). A retrospective analysis of these measurements in patients with keratoconus who had undergone PK (Group 3) was also performed...

REVIEW
A C S Tan, G S Tan, A K Denniston, P A Keane, M Ang, D Milea, U Chakravarthy, C M G Cheung
Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) has emerged as a novel, non-invasive imaging modality that allows the detailed study of flow within the vascular structures of the eye. Compared to conventional dye angiography, OCTA can produce more detailed, higher resolution images of the vasculature without the added risk of dye injection. In our review, we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this new technology in comparison to conventional dye angiography. We provide an overview of the current OCTA technology available, compare the various commercial OCTA machines technical specifications and discuss some future software improvements...
