PURPOSE: To compare various characteristics of Xalatan(®) and five generic latanoprost ophthalmic solutions. METHODS: Drop size, volume, pH values, buffer capacity, viscosity, hardness of bottles and costs were determined. Drop sizes were measured in triplicates by micropipettes, and the number of drops counted in three separate bottles of each generic product was determined. pH values were measured in triplicates by a calibrated pH meter. Buffer capacity was exploited by titrating known quantities of strong base into 2...

PURPOSE: Diabetic retinopathy (DR) can lead to significant vision loss and blindness and has a particularly high prevalence in patients with type 1 diabetes (DM1). In this study, we investigate quantitative differences in optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) data between DM1 patients with no or mild signs of retinopathy and non-diabetic subjects. METHODS: Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) imaging was performed on DM1 patients with no or mild nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy and healthy, age-matched controls...

PURPOSE: To report a family affected by familial exudative vitreoretinopathy (FEVR) in which more severe disease phenotypes segregated with digenic rather than monogenic variants in FEVR-related genes. METHODS: Phenotype was documented with high-resolution imaging of retinal structure and wide-field fundus photography. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) of known genes involved in FEVR was performed. RESULTS: Three affected individuals within a family with FEVR presented with variable disease severity...

REVIEW
Marianne Thvilum, Frans Brandt, Thomas Heiberg Brix, Laszlo Hegedüs
Data on the association between hypothyroidism and glaucoma are conflicting. We sought to shed light on this by conducting a critical review and meta-analyses. The meta-analyses were conducted in adherence with the widely accepted MOOSE guidelines. Using the Medical Subject Heading (MeSH) terms: hypothyroidism, myxoedema and glaucoma or intraocular pressure, case-control studies, cohort studies and cross-sectional studies were identified (PubMed) and reviewed. Using meta-analysis, the relative risk (RR) of coexistence of glaucoma and hypothyroidism was calculated...

The Medical Faculties of the University of Padua (Italy) and the University of Vienna (Austria) preserved two series of wax models, made by the Austrian Johann Nepomuk Hoffmayr at the beginning of the 19th century. These models were created in a period of evolution of both medical specialties and organ pathology, which brought morbid organs at the centre of medical investigation. Ceroplastic was considered a useful tool for didactic and research, as it provided a three-dimensional realistically coloured reproduction of organic lesions...

PURPOSE: To describe clinical features, risk factors and complications in a cohort of Swedish children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) screened for uveitis between 2002 and 2011. METHODS: Medical records of 299 children with JIA (93 male, 206 female; median age 5.0 years at diagnosis) were retrospectively scrutinized focusing on subtype of JIA, onset of arthritis/uveitis, presence of antinuclear antibodies (ANA) and ophthalmological status. RESULTS: Uveitis was found in 32 (11%) children, 78% bilaterally affected...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to test the efficacy of Neurokinin-1 Receptor (NK-1R) antagonist -Fosaprepitant- in inducing regression of established corneal neovascularization (CNV). METHODS: Twenty C57BL/6 mice underwent alkali burn. Seven days later, when corneal neovessels had developed, they received Fosaprepitant 10 mg/ml, administered topically six times a day in the right eye for 10 days. In parallel, a group of 20 causticated mice was treated with normal saline, as control...

PURPOSE: To compare elimination of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) by exposure of blue light alone and with riboflavin. METHODS: A reference strain of MRSA was cultured and diluted in PBS with and without riboflavin (0.01%). Fifteen microlitre was added on a microscope slide, creating a fluid layer with a thickness of around 400 microns. Both of the bacterial suspensions were exposed to blue light, and the effect between exposure with and without riboflavin was compared...

PURPOSE: To investigate the functional benefits and patient satisfaction with upper blepharoplasty in patients meeting the Danish visitation guidelines for upper blepharoplasty from the Danish Health and Medicines Authority (Sundhedsstyrelsen). METHODS: Before and 3 months after upper blepharoplasty, the following investigations were made: (i) a standard eye examination, (ii) photographic documentation with a normal camera and the infrared camera of a Spectralis Optical Coherence Tomograph and (iii) measurements of the upper visual fields using the blepharoptosis test of Octopus 900...

PURPOSE: To determine whether posterior chamber phakic implantable collamer lens (ICL) surgery in high myopia patients impedes oxygen saturation of retinal vessels. METHODS: Mean oxygen saturation and diameter in retinal blood vessels were measured before and after ICL implantation surgery to correct high myopia refractive errors (i.e. -6.00 to -20.25 dioptres [D]), using an Oxymap T1 retinal oximeter. RESULTS: In 17 eyes of 17 patients, the Oxymap T1 retinal oximeter detected a small but significant decrease in oxygen saturation of retinal venules, 1-week postoperatively (compared to preoperative measurements)...

PURPOSE: To explore the applicability of multifocal visual evoked potentials (mfVEPs) for research and clinical diagnosis in patients with optic disc drusen (ODD). This is the first assessment of mfVEP amplitude in patients with ODD. METHODS: MfVEP amplitude and latency from 33 patients with ODD and 22 control subjects were examined. Mean amplitude, mean inner ring (IR) amplitude (0.87-5.67° of visual field) and mean outer ring amplitude (5.68-24° of visual field) were calculated using signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and peak-to-peak analysis...

PURPOSE: Conjunctival specimens from primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), exfoliation glaucoma (ExG) patients and controls were histologically analysed for oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL), lipid and calcium aggregates. Our goal was to use them as biomarkers of oxidative stress and inflammation and to evaluate their correlation with glaucoma and impact on surgical outcome. METHODS: Conjunctival samples were obtained from POAG (n = 14) and ExG (n = 17) patients and from control subjects (n = 11) operated for macular hole, retinal detachment or strabismus...

PURPOSE: To evaluate a pro re nata administration of Ozurdex(®) implant versus a single administration for treating diabetic macular oedema (DME). METHODS: This exploratory study is designed as a comparative, multicentre, randomized study with a follow-up of 6 months. Patients with DME were assigned to treatment at baseline either with a single Ozurdex(®) implant during the entire six-month follow-up (fixed group) or Ozurdex(®) implant followed by retreatment on an individualized basis (PRN group)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the visual outcome after transitioning from a pro re nata (PRN) intravitreal injection regimen to a treat-and-extend (TAE) regimen for patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS: A retrospective review of patients who were switched from a PRN regimen with intravitreal injections of bevacizumab, ranibizumab or aflibercept to a TAE regimen. The best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), central retinal thickness (CRT) and type of medication used at baseline, at the time of changing treatment regimen and at the end of the study were analysed...

PURPOSE: Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) is known to reduce intraocular pressure (IOP) effectively. The aim of this study, however, was to evaluate the effect of SLT on ocular haemodynamics. METHODS: A total of 69 eyes of 69 patients (age 67.8 ± 9.9 years) with already treated primary open-angle glaucoma who were assigned for SLT for further IOP reduction were consecutively enrolled in this prospective interventional case series. Intraocular pressure, the ocular pulse amplitude (OPA), ocular pulse volume (OPV) and pulsatile ocular blood flow (pOBF) were assessed with the Ocular Blood Flow Analyzer prior to and 3 months after SLT...

PURPOSE: To investigate biomechanical and ultrastructural corneal parameters and ocular biometrics in the affected eyes of patients with unilateral primary congenital glaucoma (PCG) as compared to unaffected fellow eyes and age-matched healthy controls. METHODS: A total of 12 patients with treated unilateral PCG and 10 normal subjects were evaluated. LENSTAR was performed to determine biometric parameters; the ocular response analyser was employed to determine biomechanical properties and slit-scanning confocal microscopy was used for evaluation of corneal ultrastucture...
