IMPORTANCE: To investigate the long-term safety of a novel intraocular telemetric pressure sensor. BACKGROUND: Acquisition of accurate intraocular pressure (IOP) data is vital for sufficient medical care of glaucoma patients. Non-invasive self-tonometry with a telemetric IOP sensor can provide important information regarding the individual IOP profile. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of long-term follow-up data assessed during outpatient visits in a university hospital...

The intraocular activation of inflammatory and profibrotic mechanisms has been implicated in the progression of epiretinal membranes (ERMs).(1) However, the source of the inflammation is unknown. In retinitis pigmentosa, an inherited retinal degeneration characterized by frequent development of ERM, anti-retinal antibodies (ARAs) are associated with the development of cystoid macular edema.(2).

IMPORTANCE: Improved vision self-monitoring tools are required for people at risk of neovascular complications from age related macular degeneration (AMD). BACKGROUND: To report the self-monitoring habits of participants with intermediate AMD using the Amsler grid chart, and the use of personal electronic devices and gameplay in this over 50 year old cohort. DESIGN: Single-centre descriptive study carried out at the Centre for Eye Research (CERA), Melbourne, Australia...

IMPORTANCE: Pretreatment symptoms longer than twelve months and foveal cystoid changes are indicators for poor anatomical and functional outcome after photodynamic therapy. BACKGROUND: To evaluate the prognostic factors on the effectiveness of photodynamic therapy with double duration for treatment of exudative circumscribed choroidal haemangioma DESIGN: Retrospective study. PARTICIPANTS: Twenty-seven patients with symptomatic exudative circumscribed choroidal haemangioma treated with photodynamic therapy...

Small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) is a corneal refractive surgery that utilizes femtosecond laser to create an intrastromal lenticule, which is removed through a small incision. Epithelial ingrowth within the corneal cap-stromal interface has been reported in 0.5% of eyes.(1).

There is a paucity of information regarding the long-term stability of refractive outcomes and surgical complications following Small Incision Cataract Surgery (SICS). A prospective longitudinal cohort study from the Pacific Eye Institute in Fiji noted that 94% of eyes achieved the World Health Organisation definition of good vision (best corrected ≥6/18) at three months, with acceptable rates of vitreous loss.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa keratitis is a sight-threatening ophthalmic emergency with international reports of growing antibiotic resistance.(1) The empirical treatment for bacterial keratitis remains contentious, between fortified combination antibiotics, and fluoroquinolone monotherapy.(2) Local epidemiological data are required to inform clinical management.

IMPORTANCE: The XEN-45 implant, a hydrophilic collagen implant which drains aqueous to the subconjunctival space, has not been investigated in the context of uveitic glaucoma. BACKGROUND: To determine the safety and efficacy of the XEN-45 collagen implant in eyes with uveitic glaucoma. DESIGN: Exploratory prospective case series PARTICIPANTS: Patients with medically uncontrolled uveitic glaucoma METHODS: Twenty four consecutive patients (mean age ± standard deviation [SD] = 45...

IMPORTANCE: To assess the impact of injection frequency on visual outcomes in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) treated with intravitreal aflibercept. BACKGROUND: The UK license for treatment of nAMD with aflibercept is based on the VIEW protocol. We tested the hypothesis that patients receiving fewer than the 8 recommended injections in the first year would experience worse visual outcomes. DESIGN: Retrospective, single-centre observational study...

IMPORTANCE: Visual outcomes following diabetic vitrectomy have not previously been studied in an Australian population. BACKGROUND: This analysis aimed to (1) determine the rate of, and factors associated with visual success following diabetic vitrectomy performed for Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, and (2) investigate factors predisposing to early progression to diabetic retinopathy (DR) requiring vitrectomy. DESIGN: Retrospective, population-based audit...

IMPORTANCE: Quality of vision after multifocal intraocular lens (IOLs) implantation in relation to patient satisfaction. It is important to include the evaluation of visual quality and patient satisfaction in clinical practice. BACKGROUND: To evaluate and compare quality of life and patient satisfaction after implantation of three types of diffractive- refractive and apodized-diffractive bifocal and trifocal multifocal IOLs. DESIGN: Comparative, prospective, case series, randomized PARTICIPANTS: 104 eyes of 52 patients METHODS: 104 eyes of 52 patients underwent phacoemulsification surgery with bilateral implantation of one of three multifocal IOLs: AT LISA 809M (Carl Zeiss Meditec) (AT LISA group, 38 eyes), AT LISAtri 839MP (Carl Zeiss Meditec) (AT LISAtri group, 32 eyes), and ReSTOR SN6AD1 (Alcon) (ReSTOR group, 34 eyes)...

IMPORTANCE: Independent validation of iPad visual field testing software Melbourne Rapid Fields (MRF). BACKGROUND: To examine the functionality of MRF and compare its performance with Humphrey SITA 24-2 (HVF). DESIGN: Prospective, cross-sectional validation study. PARICIPANTS: 60 glaucomas (MD:-5.08+/-5.22); 17 pre-perimetric, 43 HVF field defects, and 25 controls. METHODS: The MRF was compared with HVF for scotoma detection, global indices, regional mean threshold values and sensitivity/specificity...
