Priya Narang, Amar Agarwal
PURPOSE: To describe a surgical technique for performing pupilloplasty. METHODS: In this surgical technique for pupilloplasty, after a single pass of needle through the edges of iris defect along the pupillary margin, the suture end is passed through the loop with 4 throws, creating a helical configuration in modified Siepser slipknot technique that is self-retaining and self-locking. RESULTS: The technique was performed in 27 cases and the loop did not open in any of the cases in the 6-month follow-up period...

PURPOSE: To survey the management of congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO) by pediatric primary health care providers in Spain. METHODS: This was a descriptive study using a web-based questionnaire to evaluate the perceptions of the members of the Pediatric Primary Care Society in Castilla-León, Spain (APAPCYL), regarding management of CNLDO. The questionnaire contained 14 direct questions and was sent by e-mail to all the pediatricians. All the responses were analyzed by the frequency of occurrence and percentages...

PURPOSE: To determine the potential role of intraoperative dexamethasone intravitreal implant (DEX-I) in reducing diabetic macular edema (DME) worsening after phacoemulsification. METHODS: This was a prospective study on 19 eyes of 19 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus with DME and cataract. Mean preoperative Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study visual acuity (VA) was 16.7 letters. Mean foveal thickness (FT) was 451 μm. The DME was naive in 11 eyes and refractory in 8 eyes...

PURPOSE: To determine the prevalence of trabecular-iris contact (TIC) and quantify this contact in healthy Caucasian individuals using Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT). METHODS: For this cross-sectional study, 2,012 eyes of 1,006 healthy subjects were recruited among individuals undergoing a routine ophthalmologic checkup. In each participant, age, sex, intraocular pressure, and spherical refractive error were first recorded along with anterior chamber depth and volume, central corneal thickness measured with the Pentacam, and axial length with the IOLMaster...

PURPOSE: To report a complicated case of fulminant idiopathic intracranial hypertension and concomitant venous stasis retinopathy leading to postpapilledema optic atrophy. METHODS: Case report. RESULTS: A 34-year-old morbidly obese woman with a history of idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) presented with a 1-month history of bilateral vision loss, diplopia, and left eye pain after being lost to follow-up for 6 years.

PURPOSE: To review the published literature on corneal collagen crosslinking (CXL). METHODS: Importance has been placed on seminal publications, systemic reviews, meta-analyses, and randomized controlled clinical trials. Where such evidence was not available, cohort studies, case-controlled studies, and case series with follow-up greater than 12 months were examined. RESULTS: Corneal collagen crosslinking with riboflavin and ultraviolet A (UVA) 370 nm radiation appears to be capable of arresting the progression of ectatic corneal disorders, with most studies reporting significant improvements in visual, keratometric, and topographic measurements...

PURPOSE: Few studies have focused on the intranasal localization of the lacrimal sac during endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy: landmarks in order to find the medial wall of the lacrimal sac have been described, but there is a lack of description of methods for the verification of the complete marsupialization of the lacrimal sac during surgery. In this report, we propose an easy and effective method for certain intraoperative identification of lacrimal sac. METHODS: A method in order to verify the effective marsupialization of the lacrimal sac is applied and described: to ensure that the opening of the sac in the nasal cavity is complete, the surgeon should identify the Rosenmuller valve, which is the end of the common canaliculus in the lacrimal sac...

PURPOSE: To determine the frequency of abnormal head position (AHP) and identify the underlying causes in patients who presented to an ophthalmology clinic due to any ophthalmologic complaint. METHODS: The medical records of patients who presented with any ophthalmologic symptoms during a 6-month period were prospectively evaluated. In all, 2,710 patients (1,492 female and 1,218 male) aged 6 months-91 years were included in the study. Each patient underwent complete ophthalmologic evaluation...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of the multifocal excimer laser corneal ablation profile (the Supracor procedure) in hyperopic presbyopia 1 year after laser treatment. METHODS: This prospective, consecutive, one-center, cross-sectional study included 20 patients with hyperopic presbyopia 1 year after treatment with the Supracor procedure. The main outcome measures were monocular uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA) and uncorrected near visual acuity (UNVA), photopic contrast sensitivity (Pelli-Robson charts), patient satisfaction, and functioning at 12 months...

PURPOSE: To report a case of juxtapapillary polypoidal choroidal neovascularization (PCNV) associated with choroidal nevus investigated by means of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A). METHODS: Case report. RESULTS: A 72-year-old woman presented with visual loss and metamorphopsia in her left eye for 5 days secondary to PCNV that developed on the border of a juxtapapillary choroidal nevus. Fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green angiography, and spectral-domain OCT confirmed the diagnosis...

PURPOSE: Handheld laser pointer thermal injury affects primarily the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). However, so far no study has reported on the possible effects of laser pointers in the deeper layers, beneath the RPE. Here, we describe the spectral-domain optical coherence tomography angiography findings in the choriocapillaris of a patient with laser maculopathy. METHODS: A 13-year-old boy presented to our department with decreased vision in the left eye 12 hours after having stared at the beam of a laser pointer...

PURPOSE: To assess the effect of panretinal laser photocoagulation on ocular pulse amplitude (OPA) in normotensive eyes with proliferative diabetic retinopathy. METHODS: Prospectively, we performed unilateral argon laser panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) in 30 patients with diabetes mellitus type II and previously untreated bilateral proliferative diabetic retinopathy. Before and 7 and 30 days after the treatment, OPA was measured using dynamic contour tonometer...

PURPOSE: To assess the impact of metabolic syndrome (MetS) on the peripapillary choroidal thickness (PPCT) and to characterize the PPCT in a Portuguese population. METHODS: This prospective study included 104 eyes. Detailed medical and ophthalmic examinations were performed; the PPCT was measured by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) using enhanced depth imaging (EDI) modality. The PPCT changes with MetS, as well as with other clinical and demographic factors, were investigated...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of topical bromfenac in patients with newly diagnosed diabetic macular edema (DME). METHODS: In this pilot study including 17 patients with monocular, newly diagnosed DME, diagnosis of DME was established by the detection of retinal thickening at or within 500 μm of the center of the macula on ophthalmoscopic examination, according to the Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study classification. Central macular thickness (CMT) was determined by optical coherence tomography...
