Purpose: To investigate the impact of venting incisions on the adherence of graft to the recipient's stroma in Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK). Methods: Fifty-six patients were enrolled in this study. Patients were randomly allocated into two groups. Twenty-eight patients had a DSAEK procedure with venting incisions. The second group was treated by conventional DSAEK with no venting incisions. Slit-lamp examination and anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) were performed in day one and 14 days after surgery to investigate graft attachment...

Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine the distribution of corneal eccentricity (E-value) in a normal population and to examine related factors. Methods: In this cross-sectional study, two villages were selected in Iran using multistage cluster sampling. Selected persons were invited to have a comprehensive eye examination. Examinations in each village were performed at a specific location under standard conditions. After testing for vision and refraction and conducting the slit-lamp exam, E-value was measured with Pentacam...

Purpose: To describe a case of endovascular occlusion of an unruptured anterior communicating artery aneurysm presenting with acute altitudinal visual field defect is presented here. Methods: A 52-year-old man was evaluated and treated for altitudinal visual field defect in the right eye. Results: In ophthalmic and neuro-imaging, an accompanying anterior communication artery aneurysm was detected as a cause of visual field defect. He underwent endovascular procedure, yielding excellent outcome as full recovery of visual field defect was observed one month following the procedure and sustained when followed at month 24...

Purpose: Keratoconus is a progressive disease of the cornea which can lead to blindness as irregular astigmatism increases. Currently, a variety of methods are available for the treatment of keratoconus, and in certain cases, it may be difficult to choose the most appropriate option. This article reviews available treatment modalities for keratoconus to provide the practitioner with practical and useful information for selecting the most suitable option for each individual patient. Methods: To review treatment methods for different stages of keratoconus, PubMed (United States National Library of Medicine) and Scopus (Elsevier BV) databases were searched using the keywords "keratoconus", "contact lens", "cross-linking", "Intacs", "keratoplasty", "gene therapy", and "irregular astigmatism", and related articles were reviewed based on disease assessment parameters and treatment methods...

Purpose: To report a case of transient visual loss following uncomplicated cataract surgery with unpreserved intracameral lidocaine. Methods: A 61-year-old woman with nuclear sclerosis cataract underwent uncomplicated phacoemulsification and in-the-bag intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. Results: After opening the eye patch on the first postoperative day, the patient complained of complete blindness. Her vision was no light perception (NLP) and the Marcus-Gunn was found to be 4+...

Purpose: To evaluate the treatment outcomes of patients with post cataract surgery endophthalmitis in our tertiary referral center. Methods: In this prospective study, patients with presumed post cataract surgery endophthalmitis were treated based on the modified endophthalmitis vitrectomy study (EVS) guidelines and followed for at least three months. Visual and anatomical outcomes were assessed in the last follow-up visit. Results: A total of 46 eyes with presumed post cataract surgery endophthalmitis were admitted to our hospital, of which 3 eyes with initial visual acuity of no light perception (NLP) and severe inflammation underwent primary evisceration...

Purpose: To report a rare case of orbital alveolar echinococcosis in Iran. Methods: A 23-year-old woman with multi-lobular mass lesion in the right orbit underwent excisional biopsy via a deep lateral orbitotomy approach. The pathologic investigation of the lesion was a multilobulated cystic lesion shown where the cyst wall structure was compatible with alveolar Hydatid cyst in histopathology. Clinical course, surgical, and medical management of the disease is noted briefly in the case of orbital involvement of the alveolar echinococcosis...

Purpose: To investigate the changes in higher-order aberrations (HOAs) induced by the implantation of implantable collamer lenses (ICLs) and Toric ICL (TICL) in eyes with high myopia and high myopic astigmatism. Methods: We investigated 33 eyes of 18 consecutive patients (in a prospective, interventional case series study), with spherical equivalent errors of -6.00 to -21.09 diopters (D) and cylindrical errors of -0.5 to -4.75 D, who underwent ICL and TICL implantation...

Purpose: To evaluate the impact of correct anatomical slab segmentation on foveal avascular zone (FAZ) dimensions in the superficial capillary plexus (SCP) and deep capillary plexus (DCP) using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Methods: Participants with healthy retinas were recruited, and 5 × 5 mm OCTA images were acquired using the Canon HS-100 Angio eXpert module. FAZ size was measured in automatically (AS, manufacturer-based) and manually (MS, anatomical-based) segmented OCTA slabs by two experienced graders...
