PURPOSE: Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) is a neurocutaneous disorder characterized by a facial port-wine stain, a glaucoma, and a leptomeningeal angioma. Epilepsy occurs in more than 75% of affected children, and seizures occurring in the first year of life are associated with a poor neurological prognosis. The aim of this study was to identify possible predictive markers of epilepsy on electroencephalogram (EEG) performed prior to seizure onset in children with SWS. METHODS: This study included children with a diagnosis of SWS who had an EEG performed prior to seizure onset...

BACKGROUND: Primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) is a chronic, progressive optic neuropathy. The aim was to develop an evidence-based clinical practice guideline of Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) for POAG with focus on Chinese medicine pattern differentiation and treatment as well as approved herbal proprietary medicine. METHODS: The guideline development group involved in various pieces of expertise in contents and methods. Authors searched electronic databases include CNKI, VIP, Sino-Med, Wanfang data, PubMed, the Cochrane Library, EMBASE, as well as checked China State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) from the inception of these databases to June 30, 2015...

PURPOSE: To report the rare incidence of retinal pigment epithelial detachment (RPED) followed by topical travoprost therapy and its subsequent reattachment after cessation of the drug. METHODS: A 60-year-old male presented with gradual loss of vision in both eyes and distorted images in right eye. He gave a history of visiting an ophthalmologist a week ago for a routine eye examination.

SIGNIFICANCE: Some studies reported that optic disc tilt and rotation might be risk factors for the susceptibility of high myopic eyes to develop glaucoma. However, data regarding optic disc manifestations in high myopia participants are few. It is crucial to characterize the features of optic disc manifestations among high myopes. PURPOSE: To describe optic disc characteristics of Chinese highly myopic eyes and to investigate associated factors. METHODS: This cross-sectional, observational study included 890 Chinese with bilateral high myopia (defined as ≤-6...

Purpose: To report a rare complication of non-valved glaucoma drainage device surgery. Observations: An 85-year-old pseudophakic white male presented with painless vision loss and bloody tears. He was 5 weeks removed from uncomplicated non-valved glaucoma drainage device (Baerveldt 101-350, [AMO, Santa Clara, CA]). There was serosanguinous discharge without apparent source and a 25% layering hyphema in the anterior chamber. The tube was unobstructed in the anterior chamber and not abutting the iris...

PURPOSE: We report the occurrence of an extensive submacular hemorrhage after trabeculectomy with mitomycin C in a patient with an occult choroidal neovascular membrane (CNVM). PATIENTS AND METHODS: The 66-year-old male patient had a 3 year history of primary open angle glaucoma in the left eye, which had been treated with topical antiglaucoma medication.

Purpose: Glaucoma is a progressive optic neuropathy and a leading cause of blindness. Neural losses from glaucoma are irreversible, and so the aim of glaucoma treatment is to slow progression and minimize the risk of further damage. Visual loss post filtration surgery in patients with advanced glaucomatous optic nerve damage is a rare but dreaded complication. Functional improvement is not expected. We report the case of a patient who experienced a significant loss of vision following glaucoma surgery that was followed by late visual recovery...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study is to determine and compare the changes in the retinal vasculature in eyes with high-tension glaucoma (HTG) or normal-tension glaucoma (NTG). METHODS: The right eyes of 43 HTG subjects, 33 NTG subjects, and 51 age- and sex-matched normal subjects were included in this cross-sectional study. Signals were projected from the internal limiting membrane to retinal pigment epithelium. The retinal perfused vessel densities in the peripapillary and parafoveal regions were measured automatically with optic coherence tomography angiography and the split-spectrum amplitude-decorrelation angiography algorithm...

Age-related changes to the balance between the pressure inside the eye (intraocular pressure, IOP) and the pressure inside the brain (intracranial pressure, ICP) can modify the risk of glaucoma. In this study, we consider whether the optic nerve in older rat eyes is more susceptible to acute IOP and ICP modification. We systematically manipulate both ICP and IOP and quantify their effects on ganglion cell function (electroretinography, ERG), optic nerve structure (optical coherence tomography, OCT) and retinal blood flow (Doppler OCT)...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Retinal Müller cells could be induced to differentiate into retinal ganglion cells (RGCs), but RGCs derived from Müller cells have defects in axon growth, leading to a defect in signal conduction. In this study we aimed to explore the role of miR-124 in axon growth of RGCs derived from Müller cells. METHODS: Müller cells were isolated from rat retina and induced to dedifferentiate into retinal stem cells. The stem cells were infected by PGC-FU-Atoh7-GFP lentivirus and then transfected with miR-124 or anti-miR-124, and the length of axon was compared...

The discoverer of exfoliation was John Lindberg of Helsinki, Finland. He conducted his research as a young ophthalmology resident with the aim of elucidating two types of age-related degenerations of the iris and presenting it as an academic thesis. To this end, he had to construct a slitlamp, because they were not commercially available. During this investigation, he paid attention to greyish flakes and fringes on the anterior lens capsule and the pupillary border, which had not been previously described. His material consisted of 202 patients...

PURPOSE: To investigate the changes in the retinal vasculature in different parts of the fundus in eyes with primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG). METHODS: Healthy subjects and those with PACG were enrolled. Optical coherence tomography and a split-spectrum amplitude decorrelation angiography algorithm were used to quantify the retinal vessel densities in the parafoveal and peripapillary areas. RESULTS: Thirty-nine eyes from 24 PACG patients and 39 eyes from 20 age- and sex-matched healthy subjects were included...

BACKGROUND: Although atypical mycobacteria had been increasingly found in various ocular infections in the past decades, a slow-growing Mycobacterium haemophilum (M. haemophilum) was scarcely reported. Similar to tuberculous infection, the presentation can masquerade as low-grade granulomatous intraocular inflammation with partial response to corticosteroids. Besides, the special requirements for culture make this pathogen difficult to diagnose. The study aims to report the clinical presentation and notify the awareness of NTM endophthalmitis among clinicians...

PURPOSE: To report a case of spontaneous dislocation of a gelatin microstent six months after the initial uncomplicated surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We describe a 73-year-old male with a history of advanced primary open angle glaucoma who had previously undergone an unsuccessful micropulse transcleral cyclophotocoagulation (CPC) of the left eye. He underwent an uncomplicated combined phacoemulsification with an ab interno gelatin microstent, but was noted to have a spontaneous dislocation of the microstent six months post-operatively...
