Venous loops are relatively rare manifestations of diabetic retinopathy. The authors describe a case characterized by the development of a venous loop during a 3-year period. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) revealed a hyperintense signal from the lesion, attesting an ordinary flow into the venous loop. OCTA also showed an area of capillary loss in proximity of the lesion, which is in agreement with the proposed pathogenesis for venous loops, developed to bypass an area of retinal vessels occlusion...

Ocular manifestations related to atopic dermatitis include keratoconus, keratoconjunctivitis, cataract, and retinal detachment. The authors report three cases of retinal detachment associated with atopic dermatitis. Although the pathogenesis is poorly understood, chronic blunt trauma may play a role in the development of retinal detachment. In addition, retinal detachments associated with atopic dermatitis may have lower rates of successful retinal detachment repair. [Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina. 2017;48:513-517...

Two patients (a 37-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman) who had choroidal neovascular membrane (CNVM) secondary to inactive toxoplasma retinochoroiditis scarring were evaluated. Multimodal imaging including fluorescein angiography, optical coherence tomography (OCT), and OCT angiography (OCTA) was used. CNVM secondary to inactive toxoplasma retinochoroiditis scarring was detected. Representative images of CNVM were demonstrated in the outer retinal layer and choriocapillary layer on OCTA. OCTA, a relatively new technique, is useful in the diagnosis of the CNVMs secondary to retinochoroiditis...

Descriptive study of two patients affected by Susac's syndrome (SuS) focusing on the chronic retinal tissue damage assessed by optical coherence tomography (OCT) and OCT angiography (OCTA). To the authors' knowledge, this is the first case series reporting OCTA in SuS. OCTA imaging revealed secondary hypoxia due to branch retinal artery occlusion of the deep capillary plexus, with additional involvement of the superficial capillary network in one case. OCTA is a noninvasive and quick diagnostic tool for detecting hypoxic retinal damage in SuS...

The authors present the case of a 59-year-old woman in treatment with interferon alfa-2b for stage IV melanoma and widespread metastases who presented with interferon-associated retinopathy. An ocular examination revealed multiple retinal cotton-wool spots and hard exudates. Interferon treatment was suspended. The patient was followed up for 5 months following the baseline visit by means of en face optical coherence tomography (OCT), spectral-domain OCT, and OCT angiography. Multimodal imaging was useful in the follow-up of this condition, permitting the characterization of all the lesions hallmarking the interferon-retinopathy and showing that this illness was related to a reduction of the retinal vascular perfusion...

Eight infants were closely monitored for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) while in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU); two required laser therapy. After discharge from the NICU, they had outpatient examination with dilated, scleral depressed ROP staging, and each had digital widefield retinal imaging (Optos, Dunfermline, United Kingdom) without lid speculum, or with lid speculum if not cooperative. Images were shared remotely using ROP-Check software (Glacier Medical Software, Anchorage, AK), from which ophthalmologists made clinical impressions...

Jiwei Sheng, Joshua D Levinson, Gayatri Reilly, Marena Patronas, Michael M Lai
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Postoperative retinal folds are a rare complication of retinal detachment repair. Folds involving the macula may result in decreased vision, metamorphopsia, and diplopia. There is no consensus on whether symptomatic folds require additional surgery, as both spontaneous regression and permanent vision loss have been described. The authors present three cases of symptomatic macular folds that demonstrated spontaneous resolution and identify key OCT prognostic signs...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The quantification of the density of macular vascular networks and blood flow areas in the foveal and parafoveal area in healthy subjects using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Cross-sectional, prospective study in an institutional setting at the Retina Services of Farabi Eye Hospital. One hundred twelve normal volunteers with no known ocular or systemic disease were included, including patient numbers (one or both eyes), selection procedures, inclusion/exclusion criteria, randomization procedure, and masking...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Early diabetic retinal changes in children with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) without diabetic retinopathy (DR) were examined using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Sixty children with T1DM without DR and 60 normal children were enrolled in the study. SD-OCT was used to measure the ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GC-IPL) and retinal nerve fiber (RNFL) thicknesses in all participants. RESULTS: The GC-IPL thickness was significantly decreased in all quadrants except the superior-nasal quadrant in children with diabetes (P < ...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To determine outcomes of intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) (Lucentis; Genentech, South San Francisco, CA) versus bevacizumab (IVB) (Avastin; Genentech, South San Francisco, CA) for treatment of macular edema (ME) secondary to retinal vein occlusion (RVO) in routine clinical practice. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective study identified treatment-naïve patients with ME secondary to RVO where treatment with either IVB or IVR was initiated...

Retinal astrocytoma is an important ocular finding for diagnosis of tuberous sclerosis complex and is also an association of neurofibromatosis. The authors present findings of a case of acquired astrocytoma associated with myelinated retinal nerve fibers. The authors also discuss the images and possible cause-effect relationship between them. [Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina. 2017;48:441-442.].

A 41-year-old male with pseudoxanthoma elasticum who presented with progressive vision loss in his left periphery is discussed. Bilateral angioid streaks, optic disc drusen, choroidal neovascularization, and peau d'orange were present. Imaging of the area with peau d'orange with adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopy and en face optical coherence tomography at Bruch's membrane (BM) revealed a pattern identical to the patches of peau d'orange visible with conventional fundus imaging techniques. These results show that structural abnormalities at the level of BM, likely a result of calcification, correlate with the characteristic "orange peel" pattern known as peau d'orange...

Xi Chen, John B Miller, Dean Eliott
Serous macular detachment occurs in nearly 50% of eyes with optic disc pit. These macular detachments have been historically difficult to treat. The authors report a case of macular retinal detachment due to an occult juxtapapillary retinal break in a patient with optic disc pit refractory to prior treatments. This case demonstrates that a presumed serous detachment associated with an optic disc pit may have a rhegmatogenous etiology. [Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina. 2017;48:432-434.].

Dilraj S Grewal, Tayler Schwartz, Sharon Fekrat
The authors report the unique response of two patients treated for cystoid macular edema (CME) secondary to central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) who developed sequential episodes of likely sterile inflammatory responses following separate intravitreal injections of aflibercept (Eylea; Regeneron, Tarrytown, NY) and ranibizumab (Lucentis; Genentech, South San Francisco, CA) despite multiple previous uneventful injections for CME secondary to CRVO. Following the twenty-fifth aflibercept and seventh ranibizumab injection, two patients developed an acute inflammatory response, which was treated empirically with intravitreal antibiotics and topical and oral steroids (in Case 2)...

Kareem Moussa, Theodore Leng, Julius T Oatts, Robert B Bhisitkul, David G Hwang, Jay M Stewart
Deposition of dystrophic calcifications on the posterior surface of silicone intraocular lenses (IOLs) has been reported in patients with asteroid hyalosis. Accumulation of silicone oil droplets on the posterior surface of silicone IOLs in silicone-filled eyes has also been reported. Recently, a novel technique to manually remove dystrophic calcifications using a nickel titanium loop (Finesse Flex Loop; Alcon, Fort Worth, TX) was described, obviating the need for IOL exchange. Here, the authors report their outcomes with this technique in five eyes with IOL dystrophic calcifications as well as one eye with IOL silicone oil droplet accumulation...
