BACKGROUND: To present the sampling methodology and selected testing sites of the National Eye Health Survey (NEHS); a cross-sectional population-based survey that aimed to determine the prevalence of vision impairment and blindness in Australia. DESIGN: Indigenous Australians aged 40 years and older and non-Indigenous Australians aged 50 years and older residing in all levels of geographic remoteness in Australia. METHODS: Using multi-stage, random-cluster sampling, 30 geographic areas were selected to provide a sample of 3000 non-Indigenous Australians and 1400 Indigenous Australians...

REVIEW
Nathan M Kerr, Jing Wang, Keith Barton
Recently many new devices and procedures have been developed to lower intraocular pressure in a less invasive and purportedly safer manner than traditional glaucoma surgery. These new devices might encourage an earlier transition to surgery and reduce the long term commitment to topical glaucoma medications with their associated compliance and intolerance issues. While often seen as an adjunct to cataract surgery, a growing body of evidence suggests that primary MIGS may be a viable initial treatment option...

BACKGROUND: Depression is very common in people with age-related eye disease. Our goal was to determine if self-care tools plus limited telephone support could reduce depressive symptoms in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) or diabetic retinopathy (DR). DESIGN: A single-blind randomized controlled clinical trial was conducted at Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital in Montreal, Canada. PARTICIPANTS: Eighty participants were recruited METHODS: To be eligible, participants must have had either late stage AMD or DR, at least mild depressive symptoms, and visual acuity better than 20/200...

BACKGROUND: AlphaB-crystallin has been shown to have angiogenic properties. The purpose of this study was to determine the levels of alphaB-crystallin in the vitreous fluid of patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) and to confirm the association between the expression level of alphaB-crystallin and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). METHODS: Vitreous samples were collected before vitrectomy from 46 eyes of 46 consecutive patients with PDR and 19 patients without diabetes mellitus (DM) had vitrectomy for idiopathic macular hole (IMH)...

BACKGROUND: To describe the clinical spectrum of presumed tuberculous (TB) uveitis in a developed, non-endemic country of high immigrant population. DESIGN: Retrospective review of a consecutive case series. PARTICIPANTS: All 39 patients diagnosed with presumed TB uveitis at the tertiary uveitis service in Auckland from 2007 to 2014. METHODS: Clinical chart review. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Patient demographics, risk factors, ophthalmic manifestations, management and outcome...

Seasonal changes and climate have a significant impact on human health. Diseases influenced by temperature and climate conditions are likely to undergo dynamic pattern shifts with consequent impact on human health. A number of infectious and non-infectious ophthalmic diseases are influenced by temperature and seasonality. Awareness of this is important from public and global health perspective in addition to resource allocation strategies. We examine the evidence for a seasonal pattern to ophthalmic diseases and assess the possible impact of climate change...

BACKGROUND: No studies to date have explored the association of vision with mortality in Indigenous Australians. We aimed to determine the 10-year all-cause mortality and its associations among Indigenous Australians living in central Australia. DESIGN: Prospective observational cohort study PARTICIPANTS: 1257 (93.0%) out of 1347 patients from The Central Australian Ocular Health Study, over the age of 40 years, were available for follow up during a 10-year period...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the mechanisms of acute angle-closure (AAC) other than the pupillary block using ultrasound biomicroscopy DESIGN: Retrospective chart review. PARTICIPANTS: All patients who were diagnosed with AAC in Ramathibodi Hospital, Bangkok, Thailand, between June 2011 and February 2015 were enrolled. METHODS: 72 patients who were diagnosed with AAC underwent a detailed ocular examination. The diagnosed mechanism of AAC was confirmed by UBM and ocular biometry...

BACKGROUND: The aim of our current investigation was to analyze the autoantibody -reactivities of patients after acute angle closure glaucoma (AACG) by means of a protein microarray approach to identify intraocular pressure (IOP)-dependent antibodies. METHODS: Collected sera from different study time points (AACG n = 6, 0, 2, 4 and 12 weeks) and control group (CTRL n = 11, 0 and 12 weeks) were analyzed. Protein-microarrays were incubated with sera and occurring immunoreactivities were visualized with fluorescence labeled anti-human-IgG antibodies...
