IMPORTANCE: There is a lack of information about long term results of chronic angle closure glaucoma (CACG) following an acute primary angle closure (APAC) in Caucasian patients PURPOSE: To report morphological and functional long-term data of CACG eyes following a monolateral APAC attack and to provide a comparison with their fellow eyes DESIGN: Observational retrospective case series (Clinica Oculistica Universitaria, Ospedale Oftalmico, Turin) PARTICIPANTS: 57 consecutive patients (114 eyes) underwent long term follow-up analysis...

Defending vision, our highest bandwidth sense, challenges human ingenuity. Replacing or repairing highly specialized but scarce tissue within constraints of transparency, tissue shape and alignment, tissue borders and pressure maintenance, presents special challenges. Many, mostly destructive surgical procedures, were developed prior to an understanding of underlying pathophysiology. For a number of conditions, both reconstructive and destructive procedures co-exist yet there are few guidelines as to the better approach...

IMPORTANCE: This novel endpoint tracks functional vision changes in patients with inherited retinal dystrophies (IRDs) over time. BACKGROUND: Determine whether a multi-luminance mobility test (MLMT) can detect functional vision changes over time in subjects with IRDs, to assess natural history and potential effects of investigational agents. DESIGN: Prospective, observational study. PARTICIPANTS: Sixty-two subjects were enrolled...

IMPORTANCE: Targeted education may impact glaucoma patients' clinical experience. BACKGROUND: To measure the impact of patient-centred glaucoma-related education on knowledge, anxiety and treatment satisfaction. DESIGN: Multicentre Australia-wide randomised clinical trial. PARTICIPANTS: 101 newly-diagnosed glaucoma patients randomised 1:1 to intervention or control groups. METHODS: Those randomised to the Glaucoma Australia educational intervention received telephone-based counselling about glaucoma followed by mail out information, in addition to usual care and information from their treating ophthalmologist...

IMPORTANCE: Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is used routinely in management of diabetic eye disease but has not been evaluated in Australian outreach settings for screening programs. BACKGROUND: To evaluate the use of OCT combined with a fundus camera compared to a fundus camera only in a telehealth diabetic retinopathy (DR) screening program for Aboriginal Australians. DESIGN: Retrospective comparative study. PARTICIPANTS: Patients with diabetes at two Aboriginal Health Services...

BACKGROUND: In this study we examined a novel variant of "Big-Bubble" Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (DALK) using trypan-blue-stained viscoelastic device for the creation of a pre-Descemetic bubble. METHODS: Ten corneoscleral rims were mounted on an artificial anterior chamber (AC). The anterior chamber was filled with air through a limbal paracentesis. A Melles' triangulated spatula was inserted through the paracentesis, with its tip penetrating the AC, was then slightly retracted and pushed into the deep stroma above the roof of the paracentesis...

IMPORTANCE: There is limited literature on the association of lifestyle and health factors related to primary open angle glaucoma amongst Asians. BACKGROUND: This study evaluated the association of primary open angle glaucoma with smoking, health and ocular factors among Chinese Singaporeans. DESIGN: Case-control study PARTICIPANTS: 711 primary open angle glaucoma patients from a Singapore hospital and 2788 population-based controls. METHODS: Subjects underwent clinical examination and completed a questionnaire with details on family history of glaucoma, comorbidities, smoking, alcohol consumption, age at menopause and use of hormone replacement therapy...

IMPORTANCE: Visual impairment significantly impairs the length and quality of life but little is known of its impact in Indigenous Australians. BACKGROUND: To investigate the association of disease-specific causes of visual impairment with all-cause mortality. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort analysis. PARTICIPANTS: 1,347 Indigenous Australians aged over 40 years. METHODS: Participants visiting remote medical clinics underwent clinical examinations including visual acuity, subjective refraction and slit-lamp examination of the anterior and posterior segments...

IMPORTANCE: Clinical evidence supports the efficacy of bimonthly injection of aflibercept for age-related macular degeneration. BACKGROUND: To evaluate aqueous vascular endothelial growth factor and aflibercept concentrations and the efficacy of bimonthly aflibercept injections in patients with age-related macular degeneration. DESIGN A PROSPECTIVE, INTERVENTIONAL CASE SERIES: PARTICIPANTS: Thirty-five eyes with exudative age-related macular degeneration...

IMPORTANCE: This study evaluates two rapid electrophysiological glaucoma diagnostic tests that may supplement existing diagnostic tools via the addition of a functional perspective. BACKGROUND: To determine the ability of two office-based electrophysiological diagnostic tests, steady-state PERG (ss-PERG) and short-duration transient visual evoked potentials (SD-tVEP), to discern between glaucomatous and healthy eyes. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study in a hospital setting...

IMPORTANCE: Australia is the only developed country to still have pockets of endemic trachoma. The research provides up-to-date, population-based prevalence data of later complications of trachoma amongst a national sample of Indigenous adults. BACKGROUND: To report the prevalence of trachomatous trichiasis (TT) in Indigenous Australians aged 40 years and over. DESIGN: Population-based cross-sectional study PARTICIPANTS: A total of 1738 (41% male) Indigenous Australians aged 40 years or older, living among 30 randomly selected Australian sites, stratified by remoteness...
