IMPORTANCE: Different tip designs in modern cataract surgery have not been studied between the reported systems. BACKGROUND: Aim of this study is to assess the efficacy of two tip designs, Intrepid® balanced tip (BT) and Kelman tapered tip (TT), in femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) and the microcoaxial torsional phacoemulsification. DESIGN: Prospective randomized unmasked cohort outcome study (hospital setting). PARTICIPANTS: 343 eyes of 343 patients underwent cataract surgery...

Diabetic macular oedema is the most common cause of diabetic retinopathy-induced vision loss. Efficacy of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor therapy in diabetic macular oedema has been demonstrated in randomized controlled trials. An Asian-specific guideline for diabetic macular oedema treatment is needed as patients in Asia tend to present with far more advanced disease than seen elsewhere in the world. Previous reviews of diabetic macular oedema management lacked a broader assessment of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor treatment choices and newer trials...

IMPORTANCE: In a subset of patients with retinal vasculitis, there is occlusion of blood flow through the retinal vessels. These eyes are at high risk of sight-threatening complications. BACKGROUND: To characterize epidemiology, clinical course, treatment and outcomes of occlusive retinal vasculitis (ORV). DESIGN: Retrospective study PARTICIPANTS: Seventy-seven uveitis patients with ORV at two large tertiary-care institutions (the USA and India)...

PURPOSE: The DBA/2J mouse has been described as a model for congenital experimental glaucoma. It develops anterior segment anomalies with synechiae and pigment dispersion leading to raised intraocular pressure (IOP) and glaucomatous damage. However there are serious practical considerations when using this model in longitudinal studies. METHODS: We followed 118 mice from 12 - 48 weeks of age in a pharmaceutical trial. Here we report on the findings in control animals (n=37)...
