We present two cases with focal corneal edema due to Fuchs' endothelial dystrophy that were successfully treated with mini Descemet membrane stripping (m-DMES) (diameter of 3-4 mm; at the area of preexisting focal corneal edema) without endothelial replacement during cataract surgery. Specular microscopy demonstrated Fuchs' endothelial dystrophy and histopathologic evaluation confirmed the diagnosis. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography and confocal microscopy were used for the evaluation of the corneal tissue recovery course after the surgical procedure...

Retinoblastoma very rarely presents as total hyphema. Our patient presented at an early age of 7 months. Follow-up of 3 years shows that unilateral group E retinoblastoma was treated successfully with enucleation and adjuvant chemotherapy. The fellow eye remained normal during this period. The factors associated with delay in treatment are also described. Reports like the present case add to the information available about advanced staging of retinoblastoma at the time of presentation, seen in cases with spontaneous hyphema due to the tumor...

Retinal vasculature is frequently altered in systemic vascular disorders such as Diabetes and Hypertension. We present a rare case in which vitreous hemorrhage was the presenting sign of an underlying congenital cyanotic heart disease.

A 35-year-old male, with a history of injury sustained three years back, underwent pars plana vitrectomy with intravitreal copper foreign body removal. Post-operatively, visual acuity improved; however, glistening refractile particles were seen at the macula. Spectral domain optical coherence tomography and en-face imaging were performed to localise the level of the deposits. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first such documentation in presumed ocular chalcosis.

Craniofacial trauma is often associated with orbital and ocular injuries. We report a case of a 21-year-old male with motor vehicular accident, orbital roof blow-in fracture, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak, and left sided globe luxation with corneal abrasion and complete conjunctival denuding. The patient was managed by a multispeciality team and the eyeball was protected by amniotic membrane graft (AMG) biological dressing with novel use of inverted sterile metallic bowl as mechanical protection till the patient stabilized...

Congenital lacrimal gland agenesis, also called congenital alacrima, is a rare cause of dry eye and is characterized by aplasia or hypoplasia of lacrimal glands. We present two 5-year old children with congenital lacrimal gland agenesis. The two cases had the final diagnosis of isolated bilateral congenital lacrimal gland agenesis and we document the clinical aspects, treatment and present a literature review related to this rare condition.

REVIEW
Leslie Jonathan Pek Seng Ang, Benjamin Chong Ming Chang
Purtscher-like retinopathy is an uncommon condition with features similar to Purtscher retinopathy but have non-traumatic causes. Several pathogenic mechanisms have been put forth with differing views on treatment options. We describe for the first time, a case of Purtscher-like retinopathy which developed following a myocardial infarct and a transient ischemic attack. We present a review of the literature on this condition, describing the various clinical presentations, investigation findings, treatment options and prognosis...

The prevalence of primary congenital glaucoma (PCG) in Saudi Arabia is high and the condition is a cause of childhood blindness in the country. Children often present with severe disease, requiring multiple procedures and a lifetime of medical care. The social and economic burden of the condition is substantial. Presently, the mainstay of management is early diagnosis and treatment of PCG. Premarital screening, especially in recessive diseases, such as PCG can be immensely useful by detecting the presence of a defect in the causative gene, followed by genetic counseling to potential couples that will lead to eradication of the disease in future generations...

Background: Data are required on ophthalmic cases that present to the emergency eye clinics in Madinah, Saudi Arabia for proper allocation of healthcare resources. Objectives: To determine the frequency and various diagnoses of patients presenting to the A&E at Ohud Hospital, Madinah, Saudi Arabia. Methods: Data was collected prospectively for all patients who presented to the A&E ophthalmology clinic from June 2014 to September 2014. The data was analyzed and presented using frequency of incidence and percentages...

Purpose: To present a new surgical technique 'Scleral Sleeve Method' which would reduce the risk of Ahmed Glaucoma Valve (AGV) tube related complications in patients undergoing AGV FP7 (New World Medical Inc., Rancho Cucamonga, CA) for refractory glaucoma. Design: Prospective, Non-Randomized, hospital based interventional case series. Subjects: A total of 16 eyes of adult patients (10 males and 6 females) with refractory glaucoma. Methods: Instead of using sutures to fix the AGV tube to sclera, we devised a novel method of intra-scleral tube fixation by creating a scleral tunnel fashioned in form of sleeve...

Purpose: To present the clinical characteristics of a group of patients with the diagnosis of chiasmal syndrome who attended a large ophthalmological institute. Methods: Retrospective, observational clinical study with the review of medical records of patients with a diagnosis of chiasmal syndrome. The following variables were assessed: demographic characteristics, chief complaint upon presentation, best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), presence or absence of diplopia, pupillary responses, optic nerve head morphology, etiology, and results from the ancillary tests including Ishihara test, Goldmann visual field (GVF) perimetry and neuroimaging...

Purpose: To measure the retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) in children with β-thalassemia major and to compare with healthy controls. Methods: A total of 47 patients with β-thalassemia major and 51 healthy controls were included. Each subject underwent a standard ophthalmological examination. RNFLT measurements were performed using optical coherence tomography. Results: Mean age of the patient group and healthy controls were 13...

Purpose: To study anatomical and functional outcomes of retinectomies in rhegmatogenous retinal detachments complicated by proliferative vitreoretinopathy. Methods: This is a retrospective interventional consecutive case series of eyes with rhegmatogenous retinal detachments complicated by advanced proliferative vitreoretinopathy and managed by relaxing retinectomy over a period of seventeen years. Three-port pars plana vitrectomy included core vitrectomy and removal of all epi-retinal membranes...

Purpose: To evaluate the real life outcomes of intravitreal aflibercept (IVAfl) treatment in patients with macular edema (ME) secondary to retinal vein occlusion (RVO) during the first year of treatment. Methods: Retrospective case series. Newly diagnosed or persistent ME patients secondary to RVO who were treated with IVAfl and had a follow-up period of at least 12 months were included. Twenty-two patients (54.8%) received 3 loading month loading doses IVAfl initially, whereas 20 patients (45...
