PURPOSE: To present the results of research aimed at developing a new method of minimally invasive removal of an intraocular foreign body (IOFB) from the eye cavity. METHODS: The main idea was to fix the IOFB onto the edge of a laser probe, which is transsclerally injected into the eye. After that, the IOFB is fixed at the end of the laser probe and removed transpupillary from the eye through an incision in the cornea. In order to fix the IOFB on the laser probe edge, this edge should be brought closely to the IOFB surface...

PURPOSE: Retinal vein occlusion (RVO) is an important cause of visual disability in the modern world. We aim to evaluate the real-world outcomes of patients with RVO treated with anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in Portugal. METHODS: We performed a retrospective, observational, multicenter study including 8 centers across Portugal and 200 patients treated with either ranibizumab or bevacizumab. Data were collected at 3 time points: time of diagnosis (0 time point) and 6 and 12 months after initiating treatment...

PURPOSE: To describe a patient presenting with suspected giant cell (temporal) arteritis (GCA) in whom subsequent temporal artery biopsy showed luminal narrowing by medial calcification, metaplastic ossification, and fibrointimal proliferation, consistent with calciphylaxis. METHODS: A 55-year-old man with end-stage renal disease presented with unilateral loss of vision and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate and was initially treated as though he had GCA; however, a subsequent temporal artery biopsy showed marked luminal narrowing by medial calcification, metaplastic ossification, and fibrointimal proliferation, consistent with calciphylaxis...

PURPOSE: To describe the outcomes of a novel technique for pterygium removal: tailored corneo-conjunctival autograft, which offers the advantages of better postoperative cosmetic outcomes and recurrence prevention. METHODS: This retrospective interventional noncomparative study included 420 eyes in 370 patients (ages 25-60 years) (127 women, 243 men). We divided the patients into 2 groups. The first group included 348 primary pterygium; the second group included 72 recurrent pterygium...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the morphology of optic nerve head by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in patients with unilateral central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). METHODS: In 39 consecutive patients with unilateral CRVO and 39 healthy controls, morphologic parameters of optic nerve head were assessed in both eyes by Spectralis SD-OCT using a custom radial B-scan pattern. The length of Bruch membrane opening (BMO) was measured in OCT scans, and optic disc diameters (DD) were assessed in infrared fundus photographs...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) features of a peripapillary intrachoroidal cavitation (ICC) in a patient with high myopia. METHODS: A 67-year-old woman with ICC underwent visual acuity testing, refraction, slit-lamp biomicroscopy, dilated fundus examination, and OCT-A. The main findings are described in this case report. RESULTS: Best-corrected visual acuity was 20/20 in both eyes. Fundus examination revealed in the right eye a macular scar, a tilted disc along with a peripapillary staphyloma, and an orange-yellowish lesion on the inferior border of the disc...

METHODS: Medical records and multimodal imaging were reviewed from patients with CNV secondary to pathologic myopia who presented to the Medical Retina and Imaging Unit of San Raffaele Hospital in Milan between October 2015 and March 2016. Main outcomes were the prevalence of coincident perforating scleral vessels and overlying CNV and association between perforating scleral vessels and CNV position within the macula and neovascular activity...

PURPOSE: To analyze spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT)-specific findings in the different stages of vitelliform macular dystrophy (VMD). METHODS: Thirty-seven patients were prospectively recruited. All the patients underwent a complete ophthalmologic examination, including best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), biomicroscopy, and SD-OCT. The examined findings were vitelliform material, neurosensory detachment, intraretinal hyperreflective foci, and the status of external limiting membrane, ellipsoid zone, and retinal pigment epithelium...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the blood flow changes of the central retinal artery measured with color Doppler imaging (CDI) in infants receiving intravitreal aflibercept (IVA) for treatment of type 1 retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). METHODS: Patients with type 1 ROP were assessed prospectively by CDI following IVA. Color Doppler imaging was used to measure the peak systolic velocity, end diastolic velocity (EDV), pulsatility index (PI), and resistivity index (RI) of the central retinal artery (CRA) before IVA injection and 1 hour, 1 week, and 1 month after injection...

PURPOSE: To investigate the prevalence of eyelid laxity and quantify eyelid measurements in normal and keratoconic eyes and the correlations of these findings with ophthalmic parameters and disease severity in patients with keratoconus (KC). METHODS: In a prospective case-control study, prevalence of eyelid laxity and eyelid measurements were evaluated in 53 patients with KC and the same number of matched healthy controls. The eyelid measurements were compared between the groups, as well as mean keratometry (K), central and thinnest corneal thickness (CCT and TCT), astigmatism, manifest refraction spherical equivalent (MRSE), best spectacle-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), and severity of KC according to the Keratoconus Severity Score...

PURPOSE: To assess whether provision of a personalized patient-held eye health summary (glaucoma personal record) improves patients' knowledge of glaucoma at 1-year follow-up. The National Institute for Clinical Excellence has recommended such an approach to ascertain if this may ultimately help slow disease progression. METHODS: Recruited patients, newly diagnosed with glaucoma conditions, were randomly allocated to receive standard clinical care or an additional glaucoma personal record, detailing the current state of each individual's eye condition...
