BACKGROUND: To report the outcomes of external drainage of subretinal fluid (SRF) in exudative retinal detachment secondary to central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR). METHODS: Retrospective observational analysis of six eyes with exudative retinal detachment secondary to CSCR who underwent external drainage of SRF between 2004 and 2014 was performed. Collected data included demographics, steroid usage, surgical details, and visual acuity preoperatively and postoperative visual acuity and clinical examination data were collected...

The purpose of this article is to report a case with rubeosis iridis treated by intravitreal aflibercept. A 61-year-old man had iris neovascularization and scanty vitreous hemorrhage secondary to proliferative diabetic retinopathy in the right eye. Neither neovascularization of angle nor elevation of intraocular pressure was found. Single intravitreal aflibercept 2 mg injection was performed. Rubeosis iridis disappeared on the next day. Scattered retinal laser photocoagulation was added 1 week later. There was no recurrence after 3-month follow-up...

Myopic choroidal neovascularization (mCNV) can cause severe visual impairment in highly myopic patients. We review the randomized trials of two approved pharmacotherapy for treating mCNV, including intravitreal injections of ranibizumab and aflibercept. These two vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) antagonists show superior ability to improve vision and reduce macular thickness, comparing with sham injections or verteporfin photodynamic therapy (vPDT). There is no severe ocular or systemic adverse reaction reported in studies associated with ranibizumab and aflibercept for mCNV...

REVIEW
Duoru Lin, Jingjing Chen, Haotian Lin, Weirong Chen
Visual electrophysiology is widely used in clinical ophthalmology. It is also of significant value in the objective assessment of visual function in adult and pediatric cataract patients and for the diagnosis of and research on retinal and visual pathway diseases. This article systematically reviews visual electrophysiology techniques, their applications in the diagnosis and treatment of adult and pediatric cataracts, and factors influencing the application of visual electrophysiology during surgical treatment for cataracts...

Widely used in clinical research, the database is a new type of data management automation technology and the most efficient tool for data management. In this article, we first explain some basic concepts, such as the definition, classification, and establishment of databases. Afterward, the workflow for establishing databases, inputting data, verifying data, and managing databases is presented. Meanwhile, by discussing the application of databases in clinical research, we illuminate the important role of databases in clinical research practice...

REVIEW
Jia-Kang Wang, Tzu-Lun Huang, Pei-Yuan Su, Pei-Yao Chang
Diabetic macular edema (DME) is a major sight-threatening cause in diabetic patients. We review the long-term outcome of four approved pharmacotherapy for treating DME, including intravitreal injections of corticosteroids (dexamethasone implants and fluocinolone acetonide inserts) and anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) (ranibizumab and aflibercept). They all show superior ability to improve vision and reduce macular thickness, comparing with sham injections or macular focal/grid laser treatment...

BACKGROUND: Different visual acuity chart can be targeted to evaluate the visual function of patients with different eye diseases. We conducted a comparative analysis of the digital logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution (LogMAR) vision chart and the standard logarithmic vision chart for the measurement of visual acuity after retinal detachment surgery. METHODS: We used the digital LogMAR vision chart and the standard logarithmic vision chart to measure the visual acuity of 100 patients (100 eyes) who underwent retinal detachment surgery at our hospital using the LogMAR recording method and compared the differences between the mean measurements obtained by both methods for all patients and for different age groups...

BACKGROUND: Primary chronic angle-closure glaucoma (PCACG) is one of the main types of glaucoma in China. Trabeculectomy is the most commonly used glaucoma filtration surgery for glaucoma in the world. Conventional trabeculectomy is prone to anesthesia-related complications intraoperative and operation-related complications postoperative in PCACG treatment. Modified minimally invasive trabeculectomy maybe can reduce the incidence of complications. METHODS: We conducted a prospective case series study and performed modified fornix-based trabeculectomy in 27 patients (30 eyes) under topical anesthesia; we then observed intraoperative anesthesia and cooperation effect, intraoperative and postoperative complications, preoperative and postoperative visual acuity, intraocular pressure (IOP), visual field, and the use of ocular hypotensive drugs...

BACKGROUND: The purpose is to investigate the relationship between full-thickness macular hole (MH) and retinal break (RB) and/or lattice degeneration. METHODS: Patients diagnosed as full-thickness MH and referred to Dr. Lin Lu from January 2009 to December 2013 were evaluated. All patients underwent general ophthalmologic examinations, fundus examination and optical coherence tomography (OCT). The RB and/or lattice degeneration were recorded. RESULTS: Totally 183 eyes of 167 patients were included...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to explore the best screening measure of myopia and its associated optimal referral criteria for children aged between 6 and 16. METHODS: After informed consent of cycloplegia was obtained, a total of 6,321 children aged between 6 and 16 from 53 primary or junior middle schools in Jiading District of Shanghai were included in our population-based study. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve was performed to determine the best cutoff points, sensitivities and specificities of different screening tests, including uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA), noncycloplegic autorefraction (NCAR) and the combination of these two tests...

BACKGROUND: Facial nerve palsy (FNP) occurs less frequently in children as compared to adults but most cases are secondary to an identifiable cause. These children may have a variety of ocular and systemic features associated with the palsy and need detailed ophthalmic and systemic evaluation.
