PURPOSE: To evaluate choroidal thickness (CT) and retinal morphological changes in eyes with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) following ranibizumab or aflibercept intravitreal treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a prospective, observational, comparative study where 76 eyes of 76 consecutive patients with treatment-naive nAMD were consecutively enrolled and randomized to ranibizumab 0.5 mg or aflibercept 2 mg injections. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography images of the choroid were obtained by enhanced depth imaging modality...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this case series was to evaluate both the visual and systemic prognosis of patients with endogenous endophthalmitis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We reported a series of 20 cases of endogenous endophthalmitis occurring between 2012 and 2015 at the university medical center in Toulouse. RESULTS: The mean age was 67 (±43.3) years with a male predominance (n=11). The site of entry was found in 14 cases (87.5%). In 11 cases (69%), the causative agent was a bacterium; a fungal infection was found in five cases...

Yousif Subhi, Torben L Sørensen
Purpose: To describe a case of Valsalva-related subretinal hemorrhage as a presenting symptom of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). The patient refrained from treatment against our best advice, and thus this is also a rare case of the natural course of an untreated PCV. Methods: Case report. Results: A 66-year-old female with a respiratory infection coughed intensely until exhaustion, after which she developed visual symptoms on the right eye...

PURPOSE: To describe the features of peripapillary pachychoroid syndrome (PPS), a novel pachychoroid disease spectrum (PDS) entity. METHODS: Medical records of 31 eyes (16 patients) with choroidal thickening associated with intraretinal and/or subretinal fluid in the nasal macula extending from the disk were reviewed (patients with PPS). Choroidal thickness was compared with 2 age-matched cohorts: typical PDS (17 eyes with central serous chorioretinopathy or pachychoroid neovasculopathy) and 19 normal eyes...

To assess predictors of treatment response in neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in an attempt to develop a patient-centric treatment algorithm. We conducted a systematic search using PubMed, EMBASE and Web of Science for prognostic indicators/predictive factors with the key words: 'age related macular degeneration', 'neovascular AMD', 'choroidal neovascular membrane (CNV)', 'anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF)', 'aflibercept', 'ranibizumab', 'bevacizumab', 'randomized clinical trials', 'post-hoc', 'prognostic', 'predictive', 'response' 'injection frequency, 'treat and extend (TAE), 'pro re nata (PRN)', 'bi-monthly' and 'quarterly'...

Four patients developed choroidal detachment within three months after trabeculectomy, documented with b-scan ultrasonography (BUS) and ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM). Intraocular pressure (IOP) of the patients ranged from 3 to 5 mm Hg. Patients were treated with cycloplegia and steroids without complete resolution of detachment. Twelve months later all patients had developed visually significant cataracts and underwent phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation. Procedures were uncomplicated. Visual acuity ranged 0...

Purpose: To assess the occurrence of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) and correlate these findings with choroidal thickness (CT). Materials and Methods: This retrospective study included 25 consecutive patients (43 eyes), mean age 48.12 ± 7.8 years, diagnosed with persistent CSCR. All patients underwent a complete ophthalmic examination, fluorescein angiography (FA), indocyanine green angiography (ICGA), optical coherence tomography, and OCTA...

BACKGROUND: To report a case for repair of cyclodialysis after trabeculectomy with Cionni-modified capsular tension ring. CASE PRESENTATION: A 64-year-old man who had undergone trabeculectomy of his left eye 3 months earlier visited our clinic owing to blurred vision. His visual acuity was 20/2000 and the intraocular pressure (IOP) was 6 mmHg. Slit-lamp examination showed a shallow anterior chamber and dense cataract. Ultrasound biomicroscopy revealed 360 ° detachment of the ciliary body and suspected cyclodialysis of the trabeculectomy incision...

BACKGROUND: The ratio of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) and pigment epithelium detachment (PED) represents an important parameter regarding the risk of developing a tear of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in patients with vascularized PED due to age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS: Within the framework of the RECOVER study a total of 29 treatment-naive patients with vascularized PED underwent fluorescein angiography (FA), indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) volume scans...

BACKGROUND: Severe vision-impairing ocular inflammation is rarely reported following extensive laser. Previous cases have involved retinal photocoagulation for diabetic retinopathy resolving over days. This report documents a rare instance of this where encircling retinopexy/cerclage was done as fellow eye retinal detachment prophylaxis in a patient with no overt comorbidities. RESULTS: A panuveitis-like reaction with severe, near-total visual impairment was documented 1 day following single-sitting encircling laser retinopexy/cerclage done as fellow eye prophylaxis for a 21-year-old male presenting with total retinal detachment in the other eye...
