Congratulations to Dr. Rao et al(1) for highlighting a sight threatening complication of the wonder drug Rociletinib. However, an important point regarding Rociletinib needs to be highlighted which was partially brought out in an earlier article by Liu et al.(2).

The slit lamp enables a well-illuminated and magnified view of the eye. There have been previous imaging devices used for recording, however the quality of the stills and video is limited by cost. We present a relatively lower cost solution for the Haag-Streit slit lamp (Haag Streit AG, Switzerland) using a high definition camera, Hero5 Black (GoPro Inc., USA).

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases which results in a progressive and characteristic optic neuropathy and visual loss. It is well known that the prevalence of glaucoma fluctuates in various societies and ethnicities around the world. Pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (PXG) is a common form of secondary glaucoma worldwide.

Maintaining healthy aqueous humor outflow (AHO) is important for intraocular cellular health and stable vision. Impairment of AHO can lead to increased intraocular pressure, optic nerve damage, and concomitant glaucoma. An improved understanding of AHO will lead to improved glaucoma surgeries that enhance native AHO as well as facilitate the development of AHO-targeted pharmaceuticals. Recent AHO imaging has evolved to live human assessment and has focused on the structural evaluation of AHO pathways and the functional documentation of fluid flow...

IMPORTANCE: Intraocular lens (IOL) power selection is a critical factor affecting visual outcome after IOL implantation in short eyes. Many formulas have been developed to achieve a precise prediction of the IOL power. However, controversy regarding the accuracy remains. BACKGROUND: To investigate the accuracy of different IOL power calculation formulas in short eyes. DESIGN: Meta-analysis PARTICIPANTS: Patients with the axial length of eyes less than 22mm from previously reported studies...

Importance There is a burgeoning interest in the use of deep neural network in diabetic retinal screening. BACKGROUND: To determine whether a deep neural network could satisfactorily detect diabetic retinopathy that requires referral to an ophthalmologist from a local diabetic retinal screening programme and an international database. Design Retrospective audit Samples Diabetic retinal photos from Otago database photographed during October 2016 (485 photos); and 1200 photos from Messidor international database...

Importance Referral letters constitute the first step on the pathway to cataract surgery, however little is known on how effective referral letters are in providing adequate information to triage patients and inform surgical prioritisation. BACKGROUND: Benchmarking exercises are important to document referral processes and to identify areas where improvements can be made. Design Cross-sectional study with longitudinal follow-up conducted at two metropolitan public hospitals in New South Wales, Australia...

Based on the Herpetic Eye Disease Study,(1) aciclovir has been used in the prevention of recurrent Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) keratitis for nearly 20 years.(2) At that time aciclovir (Zovirax) and topical trifluridine (Viroptic) were the medications available for use. Based on clinical evidence, oral aciclovir is also used in the treatment of Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus.

IMPORTANCE: The data may supports the notion that the mechanical and vascular mechanisms of glaucomatous injury are intertwined BACKGROUND: To study the association of intraocular pressure (IOP) related factors, IOP, trans-lamina cribrosa pressure difference (TLCPD), cerebrospinal fluid pressure (CSFP) and retinal vessel diameters (RVD), central retinal arteriolar equivalent (CRAE), central retinal venular equivalent (CRVE) with neuro-retinal rim area (RA). DESIGN: A population-based, cross-sectional study PARTICIPANTS: 6830 people aged 30 years and over...

This article reports the results of a single-centre study which has applied prospective risk analysis to predict posterior capsule rupture or vitreous loss (PCR/VL) during cataract surgery at a tertiary teaching centre in New Zealand; this risk analysis was used to select cases for trainees based on risk of complications. Data was collected at Waikato Public Hospital from July 2014 to May 2017. A total of 646 cases were recorded for 9 surgeons: 1 consultant, 5 senior registrars and 3 junior registrars.

IMPORTANCE: Identifying variables that influence presenting visual acuity (VA) in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) is important because it is a strong predictor of long-term outcomes. BACKGROUND: To assess the clinical and social characteristics associated with low presenting VA in nAMD patients. DESIGN: Cross-sectional analysis from a prospective, observational database. PARTICIPANTS: We identified 3242 treatment-naïve patients from 54 Australian practices in the Fight Retinal Blindness! registry...

Surgical treatments of iris melanoma are aimed at complete resection with minimal manipulation or tumor disruption.(1) Sector iridectomy is a standard surgical intervention for circumscribed iris tumors without seeding or involvement of the iris root. We describe a novel, minimal-touch, variation of sector iridectomy for the excision of circumscribed iris lesions performed in three patients with iris tumors suspicious for melanoma.
