Hyeshin Jeon, Hanjo Kwon, Hee-Young Choi
PURPOSE: To introduce a modified method of anterior transposition of inferior oblique (ATIO) and compare with traditional method in terms of efficacy and complications. METHODS: The medical records of patients who had undergone unilateral ATIO and were followed for at least 6 months were reviewed retrospectively. The patients were divided into two groups according to the surgical method: modified ATIO (modified group, n = 16) and traditional ATIO (traditional group, n = 15)...

PURPOSE: To report prenatal sonographic findings of congenital dacryocystocele. METHODS: The medical records of all cases diagnosed with congenital dacryocystocele at a tertiary care center from 2003 to 2015 were reviewed retrospectively. RESULTS: Eleven cases of congenital dacryocystocele were analyzed. No accompanying fetal anatomic anomalies where detected. Mean maternal age at evaluation was 22 years of age (range, 17-32 years). Four of 10 cases were primigravidas...

PURPOSE: To examine whether educational pamphlets and videos for adults can increase follow-up rates for eye examinations among preschool children. METHODS: The target population was 3- to 5-year-olds attending preschools within Los Angeles County and receiving services from the UCLA Preschool Vision Program (UPVP). Preschools were randomly assigned to standard and enhanced-education groups. The same procedures were followed in each group, except that preschool personnel and parents of children referred for eye examinations in the enhanced-education group received education materials and watched a 3-minute informational video on the screening day...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the surgical outcomes in patients with acquired nonaccommodative esotropia operated on based on a short prism adaptation test (PAT) and to determine the subgroup of patients most responsive to PAT. METHODS: In this prospective interventional cases series, patients with acquired nonaccommodative esotropia were enrolled. Patients wore Fresnel trial lenses based on the results of alternate prism-cover testing. With the Fresnel prism in place, alignment was measured after 20 minutes...

PURPOSE: To investigate potential differences in the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, macular thickness and foveal thickness between amblyopic eyes and normal fellow eyes on spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). METHODS: A cross-sectional study of patients ≥10 years of age with unilateral amblyopia resulting from an anisometropic, strabismic or deprivative cause. Comprehensive ophthalmic examination was completed and the retinal structures of both eyes were measured using SD-OCT...

Kanwar Mohan, Suresh Kumar Sharma
PURPOSE: To report long-term motor and sensory outcomes after surgery for the nonaccommodative component of partially refractive accommodative esotropia (PRAET). METHODS: The medical records of consecutive patients ≤11 years old operated for the nonaccommodative component of PRAET and followed postoperatively for at least 10 years were retrospectively reviewed. RESULTS: A total of 47 patients were included (median age, 3.0 years). The mean postoperative follow-up was 12...

PURPOSE: To compare comfort and inflammation in patients treated with postoperative topical antibiotic steroids in one eye versus no treatment in the other eye. METHODS: This prospective, randomized single-masked study included all patients with planned symmetrical strabismus surgery via fornix incision. One eye was randomly assigned to topical postoperative tobramycin-dexamethasone and the other eye was not treated. Patient and parent questionnaires were administered, and two masked observers assessed conjunctival injection over the muscle and wound site...

#8
Jane H Lock, Carolyn A Ross, Maree Flaherty
A 2.6-year-old boy presented with prominent corneal arcus. This clinical sign is rarely seen at such a young age and led to the diagnosis of familial hypercholesterolemia (FH). Genetic analysis detected biallelic pathogenic sequence variants c.1069G>A and c.2034C>A in the LDLR gene. There is significant cardiovascular morbidity and mortality associated with FH, hence early diagnosis and treatment is imperative.

Leukocoria in children should always raise the concern for retinoblastoma. However, a variety of non-neoplastic conditions can also present with leukocoria, including persistent fetal vasculature (PFV), a nonhereditary, congenital anomaly caused by a failure of the fetal intraocular vasculature to regress during development. Classically PFV presents with features that make it easily distinguishable from retinoblastoma, including microphthalmia, retrolental fibrovascular membrane, central dragging of ciliary processes, and cataract...

Ligneous conjunctivitis is a rare form of chronic recurrent membranous conjunctivitis with reduced plasminogen activity. It is characterized by the formation of characteristic firm ("woody") membranes on the tarsal conjunctiva. Similar lesions may occur on other mucous membranes. When treated with local excision, ligneous conjunctivitis is invariably associated with recurrences. Various therapeutic modalities, including topical heparin, cyclosporine, fresh frozen plasma (FFP), plasminogen, and amniotic membrane transplantation have been reported to reduce postoperative recurrences...

#15
Brock Alonzo, Beth Edmunds, Allison R Loh
Glaucoma drainage devices are commonly used in the surgical treatment of children with glaucoma. We report a case of unusually large reservoir formation causing proptosis, exposure keratopathy, and motility deficits. This case highlights the importance of B-scan and axial length measurements in differentiating proptosis from buphthalmos in children with glaucoma. Reducing the reservoir improved the proptosis and resolved the motility and exposure issues.

#16
Raymond G Areaux, Amanda C Maltry
Subconjunctival granulomata developed in 2 patients after use of GenTeal gel to lubricate the cornea during strabismus repair. We report the clinical findings and histopathology of the subconjunctival nodules. These lesions are similar to those previously reported following use of GenTeal gel in retinal surgery and use of similar large polymers in nonocular surgeries. Copious irrigation should be considered when conjunctival wounds are exposed to GenTeal gel, and alternative corneal wetting agents should be considered for use during strabismus surgery...

Bipasha Mukherjee, Manideepa Banerjee, Sumita Agarkar
A dermoid cyst is a choristoma that arises from the displacement of ectoderm to a subcutaneous location along embryonic closure lines. Rarely dermoids have a deep intraorbital component that is connected to a superficial component through a defect in bone, also known as dumbbell dermoid. We report the case of a young boy who was misdiagnosed having chronic osteomyelitis of the zygoma, based on clinical and radiological features. On surgical exploration he was found to have a dumbbell-shaped dermoid with a bony defect...
