PURPOSE: To assess tolerability and efficacy following a switch from benzalkonium chloride-latanoprost to preservative-free latanoprost in patients with glaucoma or ocular hypertension. METHODS: A total of 140 patients with glaucoma or ocular hypertension controlled with benzalkonium chloride-latanoprost for at least 3 months were switched to treatment with preservative-free latanoprost. Assessments were made on days 15, 45, and 90 (D15, D45, and D90) and included best-corrected visual acuity, intraocular pressure, slit lamp examination, fluorescein staining, tear film break-up time, patient symptom evaluation, and subjective estimation of tolerability...

PURPOSE: To describe the optical coherence tomography angiography characteristics of myopic patients with choroidal neovascularization secondary to pathologic myopia during ranibizumab therapy. METHODS: Nineteen patients were enrolled in this prospective study (13 females, 6 males, mean age 55.25 ± 9.63 years) for a total of 20 eyes examined (14 right eyes, 6 left eyes). Images were analyzed independently by two examiners. RESULTS: Mean follow-up was 5...

PURPOSE: To describe the optical coherence tomography findings of retinal astrocytic hamartoma of tuberous sclerosis and to confirm the association between the type of retinal astrocytic hamartoma and systemic manifestations in Japanese patients. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective observational case series. METHODS: The medical records of 35 patients with tuberous sclerosis who underwent ophthalmological examination were reviewed. The retinal astrocytic hamartomas were classified into four types based on the optical coherence tomography findings, and their association with systemic disease was evaluated...

PURPOSE: To investigate the 2- and 5-year publication rates of abstracts presented at major international ophthalmology meetings. METHODS: We analyzed a random selection of 20% of free papers and posters presented at the 2010 meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the European Association for Vision and Eye Research, the Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology, and the 2009 European Society of Ophthalmology meeting...

PURPOSE: Myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein autoantibodies are associated with certain optic neuritis. Little data are known about the specificity of the initial ophthalmologic presentation. METHODS: A monocentric retrospective study (2013-2017) of all patients diagnosed with myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein+ optic neuritis in a tertiary ophthalmologic unit was conducted. The primary objective was to define the clinical ophthalmologic description of the first episode...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the feasibility and outcomes of the sole use of 23g pars plana vitrectomy in cases with diabetic vitreous hemorrhage with vitreoretinal traction. METHODS: Prospective interventional case series involving patients between January 2013 and January 2018. All eyes underwent 23g pars plana vitrectomy with internal tamponade. Intraoperative parameters including ancillary instruments, the methods used for hemostasis and complications were all recorded...

PURPOSE: To evaluate if ABO blood group and Rh factor have an effect on retinal and choroidal thickness. METHODS: This study was designed prospectively. Retinal nerve fiber layer, retinal, and choroidal thicknesses were measured with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography. Retinal and choroidal thickness measurements (one subfoveal, three temporal, and three nasal) were obtained at 500-μm intervals up to 1500 μm with the caliper system. RESULTS: In this study, 109 male and 151 female, 260 individuals in total were included...

METHODS: Diabetic macular edema treated with ranibizumab following bevacizumab failure in Israel was a retrospective, multi-center study. Consecutive eyes with persistent diabetic macular edema following at least three previous intravitreal bevacizumab injections prior to intravitreal ranibizumab, at least three-monthly intravitreal ranibizumab injections and at least 12 months of follow-up were included...

PURPOSE: Over-filtration is a well-known complication of trabeculectomy and related procedures, especially with adjunctive antimetabolites. Secondary hypotony can result in reduced visual acuity and compromise long-term surgical success. Persistent hypotony requires intervention and we describe an effective adaptation of placing conjunctival compression sutures directly over the scleral flap. METHODS: A retrospective consecutive case series of all patients who underwent conjunctival compression suturing from 2012 to 2014 at Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, UK...

OBJECTIVES: Despite being approved and effective, steroids, and especially dexamethasone intravitreal implants, still have a poorly-defined role in management of diabetic macular edema. In order to overcome some of the limitations in current recommendations, a group of experts met to define consensus on some of the most controversial issues on the use of dexamethasone intravitreal implants in daily management of diabetic macular edema. METHODS: A Delphi-based approach was utilized to develop clinically relevant statements applicable to routine treatment settings...

PURPOSE: To describe the feasibility and efficacy of performing single-pass four-throw pupilloplasty for secondary angle-closure glaucoma post silicon oil tamponade. METHODS: The procedure was performed in five eyes of five patients. All the cases underwent silicon oil removal with single-pass four-throw pupilloplasty. Single-pass four-throw procedure involves a single pass of needle through the iris tissue that is to be apposed followed by taking four throws by passing the suture end through the loop that is withdrawn from the anterior chamber as in a modified Siepser's slip-knot technique...
