PURPOSE: To evaluate the treatment of selected patients with uveal melanoma with endoresection and adjuvant ruthenium brachytherapy. METHODS: Thirty-five patients with uveal melanoma not suitable for ruthenium plaque monotherapy were treated with endoresection and adjuvant ruthenium brachytherapy between January 2001 and October 2013. Recurrence-free survival, globe retention, course of visual acuity (VA), occurrence of therapy-related complications and metastasis-free and overall survival were analysed retrospectively...

Laser in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is safe and effective laser refractive procedures in treating refractive errors. However, regression of treatment and iatrogenic keratectasia remain to be a major concern, especially in treating thin cornea with high ametropia. Collagen cross-linking (CXL) is an effective method in stopping keratoconus progression through increasing the biomechanical strength of the cornea. Adjuvant cross-linking to refractive procedures can theoretically help prevent regression and reduce the risk of keratectasia development by increasing the mechanical stability of cornea...

PURPOSE: To introduce a new method for direct observation of tear secretion from the palpebral lobes of the main lacrimal glands and Wolfring glands using fluorescein dye. METHODS: Twenty-six patients with dry eye and 26 healthy subjects were included in the study. Fluorescein was applied to the conjunctiva overlaying the palpebral lobe of the main lacrimal glands. Under cobalt blue light, we captured tear secretion from the glands in movies. We compared the number of excretory openings, the location and tear flow rate between the dry eye and healthy-subject groups...

The role of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), including in retinal vascular diseases, has been well studied, and pharmacological blockade of VEGF is the gold standard of treatment for neovascular age-related macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusion and diabetic macular oedema. Placental growth factor (PGF, previously known as PlGF), a homologue of VEGF, is a multifunctional peptide associated with angiogenesis-dependent pathologies in the eye and non-ocular conditions. Animal studies using genetic modification and pharmacological treatment have demonstrated a mechanistic role for PGF in pathological angiogenesis...

PURPOSE: Intra-arterial chemotherapy (IAC) has become an essential technique for the treatment of advanced and relapsed intra-ocular retinoblastoma. The outcome of IAC for retinoblastoma is influenced by a variety of medical and non-medical factors. In this study, we aimed to examine the outcome of IAC and determine the factors influencing clinical outcome. METHODS: A total of 107 eyes of 73 patients with retinoblastoma undergoing IAC between January 2011 and April 2013 were retrospectively reviewed for clinical outcomes...

PURPOSE: To investigate tear film stability and secretion according to serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 [25(OH)D] levels in dry eye patients. METHODS: In this retrospective observational study, the medical charts of 92 patients who visited the Department of Ophthalmology at Hallym University Kangnam Sacred Heart Hospital from April to August 2015 were reviewed. Serum 25(OH)D levels were measured. Subjects were divided into three groups according to serum 25(OH)D levels: sufficient, inadequate or deficient group...

Katherine Sanchez, Fiona J Rowe
PURPOSE: To evaluate the role of neural integrators (NI) in the oculomotor system. METHODS: A literature search was carried out using several electronic databases during the months of June 2014 to March 2015. The following keywords were used to generate focused results: 'neural integrators', 'gaze-holding', 'oculomotor integration', 'impaired gaze-holding', 'gaze evoked nystagmus' and 'gaze dysfunction'. Further materials were found through searching relevant articles within reference lists...

PURPOSE: To predict the intereye asymmetry in functional (mean deviation, MD on visual field, VF) and structural (retinal nerve fibre layer, RNFL and ganglion cell complex, GCC thickness on spectral domain optical coherence tomography, SDOCT) measurements in glaucoma using the automated pupillography parameters. METHODS: Fifty-nine subjects with a diagnosis of either glaucoma or glaucoma suspect underwent automated pupillography along with VF and SDOCT examinations...

PURPOSE: To determine whether the levels of cytokines and chemokines in tears differ in uveitis patients and healthy subjects. METHODS: Ninety-two uveitis patients (mean age 46.4 years) and 157 control healthy subjects (mean age 49.5 years) were recruited. Subjects with ocular surface diseases such as dry eye were excluded from the study. Using multiplex bead-based assays, tears (4 μl) were analysed for the concentration of interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-1RA, IL-2, IL-6, IL-7, IL-8/CXCL8, IL-10, IL-12p70, IL-15, IL-17A, IL-23, epidermal growth factor (EGF), fractalkine/CX3CL1, interferon-γ, IP-10/CXCL10, monocyte chemo-attractant protein (MCP)-1/CCL2, tumour necrosis factor-α, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), transforming growth factor (TGF)-β1, TGF-β2 and TGF-β3...

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is an increasingly common disease with massive personal and economic costs. While it has long been known that AD impacts the visual system, there has recently been an increased focus on understanding both pathophysiological mechanisms that may be shared between the eye and brain and how related biomarkers could be useful for AD diagnosis. Here, were review pertinent cellular and molecular mechanisms of AD pathophysiology, the presence of AD pathology in the visual system, associated functional changes, and potential development of diagnostic tools based on the visual system...

PURPOSE: To assess the retinal vessel blood oxygen saturation preoperatively and postoperatively in patients with different grades of cataracts. METHODS: This study included 40 eyes from 40 patients with senile cataracts ranging from grade 1 to 3. All 40 eyes received standard phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation. The mean retinal arterial and venular oxygen saturation (SO2 ) levels were measured using the Oxymap system prior to, immediately after and 3 months after cataract surgery...

PURPOSE: It has previously been shown that the intervals between screening examinations for diabetic retinopathy can be optimized by including individual risk factors for the development of the disease in the risk assessment. However, in some cases, the risk model calculating the screening interval may recommend a different interval than an experienced clinician. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of factors unrelated to diabetic retinopathy and the distribution of lesions for discrepancies between decisions made by the clinician and the risk model...
