Amyloidosis of the eyelid is uncommon and is typically associated with systemic associations. In contrast, amyloidosis of the conjunctiva is often localised with no other associations. We present a rare case of a 92-year-old gentleman with both cutaneous lid lesions and conjunctival amyloid with no systemic involvement. Biopsy demonstrated the hallmarks of amyloid and treatment has remained conservative. He remains at the department to be monitored for secondary glaucoma.

CLINICAL CASE: A 35-year-old male with unilateral ocular hypertension in the right eye (RE). Anterior segment examination of the RE showed a melanotic lesion. Intraocular pressure (IOP) was 40mmHg in RE. Gonioscopy revealed extension into the anterior chamber angle. Excisional biopsy was performed and consistent with iris melanoma and secondary melanomalytic glaucoma. Brachytherapy was performed as adjuvant therapy. DISCUSSION: In patients presenting with unilateral glaucoma and increased pigmentation in the trabecular meshwork, it is crucial to perform imaging studies...

PURPOSE: To investigate the incidence of neovascularization of the iris (NVI) and clinical features of patients with NVI following acute central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO). METHODS: A retrospective review of 214 consecutive CRAO patients who visited one tertiary hospital between January 2009 and January 2015 was conducted. In total, 110 patients were eligible for this study after excluding patients with arteritic CRAO, a lack of follow-up, iatrogenic CRAO secondary to cosmetic filler injection, or NVI detected before CRAO attack...

We report a case of enucleation for painful blind eye secondary to recurrent bleeding from choroidal neovascularisation in an eye that was irradiated following presumed metastatic breast carcinoma to the choroid. A 58-year-old woman with a history of treated breast malignancy presented with haemophthalmus and intractable glaucoma in the right eye. One year previously she had presented with right vitreous haemorrhage with subretinal mass that had been irradiated given her history of breast carcinoma. Following irradiation, vitrectomy was performed to clear the blood...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of the study was to evaluate the intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering effect and tolerability of ripasudil, a rho-kinase inhibitor, in patients with glaucoma inadequately controlled with maximum medical therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This prospective, noncomparative, interventional case series study included 35 patients with primary open angle glaucoma, in whom the glaucoma was poorly controlled with maximum medical therapy before starting the treatment with ripasudil...

This case series describes the ocular, clinical and histologic manifestations of disseminated Aspergillosis in two dogs. Two dogs presented for severe unilateral panophthalmitis and secondary glaucoma with positive Aspergillus spp. titers. Case 1 showed no clinicopathologic systemic symptoms of fungal dissemination, however, case 2 was affected with acute renal failure. The affected eye of case 1 did not respond to medical therapy and was enucleated for comfort. The affected eye of case 2 responded to aggressive topical and systemic medical therapies, however, the patient was euthanized for acute renal failure...

INTRODUCTION: Glaucoma is a known complication of uveitis, and may require glaucoma tube shunt implantation for intraocular pressure (IOP) control. The success of glaucoma tube shunt implantation in the setting of a local ocular steroid depot in uveitic glaucoma remains unknown. The purpose of this study was to determine whether patients who underwent combined glaucoma tube shunt (Ahmed) and fluocinolone acetonide (Retisert™, Bausch + Lomb, Bridgewater, NJ, USA) implantation have superior outcomes compared to patients with Ahmed implants only in the setting of uveitic glaucoma...

BACKGROUND: To study potential ischemic effects of intravitreal Bevacizumab (IVB) on unaffected retina in treatment-naive eyes with macular edema secondary to branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) and contralateral eyes secondary to systemic absorption. METHODS AND FINDINGS: Prospective, interventional series included 27 treatment-naive eyes with BRVO and macular edema. EXCLUSION CRITERIA: Eyes with diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, vasculitides, papilledema or systemic neurologic condition...

AIM: to study aqueous humor secretion and outflow in patients, whose major blood vessels of the neck got compressed by thyroid nodules. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Ocular hydrodynamics was assessed in 60 patients (119 eyes) with uni- or bilateral benign thyroid nodules compressing the major neck blood vessels. RESULTS: Most patients demonstrated a significant decrease in parameters of aqueous humor secretion and outflow. After decompression, ocular hydrodynamics usually improved reaching its normal level...

PURPOSE: To describe the clinical spectrum and a new theory of pathogenesis of true exfoliation syndrome. DESIGN: Cross-sectional and prospective, observational case series. PARTICIPANTS: Consecutive patients with characteristic peeling of the anterior lens capsule. METHODS: After maximal mydriasis, slit-lamp biomicroscopy, and photography, imaging of the anterior capsule and zonules was performed. The condition was classified into 4 clinical stages: annular anterior capsule thickening with a distinct splitting margin (stage 1), an inward detached crescentic flap lying on the anterior lens (stage 2), a floating and folding translucent membrane behind the iris (stage 3), and a broad membrane within the pupil (stage 4)...
