#1
REVIEW
Shueh Wen Lim, Peter van Wijngaarden, Colin A Harper, Salmaan H Al-Qureshi
The prevalence of diabetes and diabetic retinopathy is increasing around the world. Glycaemic control is important in reducing the long-term risk of complications of diabetes, however intensive glycaemic control, particularly in patients with longstanding and poorly controlled diabetes, is associated with the risk of early worsening of diabetic retinopathy and vision loss. We present two clinical cases to illustrate the presentation of early worsening and to highlight a role for intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor therapies in ameliorating this phenomenon, as well as a review of the current understanding of this phenomenon...

IMPORTANCE: Myopia is a major public health concern worldwide, while outdoor time is indicated to be protective against the onset of myopia. BACKGROUND: To describe the methodology and baseline data of the Shanghai Time Outside to Reduce Myopia trial (STORM). DESIGN: A 2 year, school-based, prospective, cluster randomized trial. PARTICIPANTS: Children from grade I and II classes of 24 schools from 8 districts in Shanghai, China, were randomized to either a control group, a test group I (40 minute outdoor time/day) or test group II (80 minute outdoor time/day)...

IMPORTANCE: The diagnostic accuracy of different retinal imaging modalities to detect active choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) is essential to enable a correct diagnosis but currently poorly understood. BACKGROUND: Optical coherence tomography (OCT), fluorescein angiography (FA) and optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) are employed in daily practice but a systematic comparison of these imaging techniques is lacking...

Ashley Polski, Maria Sibug Saber, Jonathan W Kim, Jesse L Berry
IMPORTANCE: Although the most recent American Joint Committee on Cancer staging guidelines for ocular surface squamous neoplasia place a heightened emphasis on biopsy and histopathologic analysis, the interpretation and clinical relevance of these staging criteria are not always clear. We address limitations of using histopathologic analysis to predict clinical outcomes and suggest less-invasive assessments. BACKGROUND: To investigate the impact of histopathologic depth of invasion on outcomes for tumours with the common presentation of multiple structure involvement...

REVIEW
Daniel T Hogarty, David A Mackey, Alex W Hewitt
Artificial intelligence (AI) has emerged as a major frontier in computer science research. Although AI has broad application across many medical fields, it will have particular utility in ophthalmology and will dramatically change the diagnostic and treatment pathways for many eye conditions such as corneal ectasias, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. However, given that AI has primarily been driven as a computer science, its concepts and terminology are unfamiliar to many medical professionals...
