PURPOSE: To measure straylight in a cohort of patients with cataract using a novel optical instrument and to correlate optical straylight values with clinical grade of cataracts and psychophysical straylight values. METHODS: Measurements were performed on 53 eyes of 44 patients with cataract admitted to the ophthalmology service of the university hospital in Murcia, Spain, and 9 young volunteers with no known ophthalmic pathology. Lens opacities were classified according to the Lens Opacities Classification System Ill (LOCS III) under slit-lamp examination...

PURPOSE: The research aim was to identify demographic characteristics, chronic diseases, and unhealthy behaviors predicting ill health retirement in South Korea. METHODS: Data were collected from 15,407 individuals enrolled in the first through the fifth phases of the Korea Health Panel Survey (2008-2012) using structured questionnaires examining retirement, morbidities, and health-related behaviors. The Cox proportional hazard model was used to examine demographic and clinical characteristics' effects on ill health retirement...

L Leigue, F Montiani-Ferreira, B A Moore
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the antibiotic susceptibility profile of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from different animal species with septic ocular surface disease. Sixteen strains of P. aeruginosa were isolated from different species of animals (dog, cat, horse, penguin and brown bear) with ocular surface diseases such as conjunctivitis, keratocojnuctivits sicca and ulcerative keratitis. These isolates were tested against 11 different antimicrobials agents using the Kirby-Bauer disk-diffusion method...

Toshiaki Goseki, Hitoshi Ishikawa, Nobuyuki Shoji
The authors here report a case series where bilateral concurrent eye examination, using a head-mounted perimeter (imo®), was employed to facilitate diagnosis of functional visual loss, as regular ophthalmological tests were ineffective. Subjects (11-year-old female, 15-year-old male, and 24-year-old male) were diagnosed with unilateral functional visual loss by using the imo®, at the Kitasato University hospital. The results of the imo® and those of Goldmann perimetry or Humphrey Field Analyzer II differed for all subjects, which is indicative of potential functional visual loss...

We report a case of relapsed sporadic Burkitt lymphoma (BL) presenting as an isolated infiltrative optic neuropathy. This is a single-patient, retrospective case report of a patient seen by the ophthalmology service at our institution. To our knowledge, our case is the first to report isolated infiltrative optic neuropathy associated with sporadic BL as the sole manifestation of recurrence. The possibility of disease relapse should be considered for patients with a history of lymphoreticular malignancy who present with acute visual symptoms suggestive of optic neuropathy...

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the macular ganglion cell layer (GCL) and peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness in patients with unilateral posterior cerebral artery (PCA) ischaemic lesions using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). A prospective, case-control study of patients with unilateral PCA lesion was conducted in the neuro-ophthalmology clinic of Centro Hospitalar Lisboa Central. Macular and peripapillary SD-OCT scans were performed in both eyes of each patient...

Importance: Despite the significant contribution of surgical spending to health care costs, most surgeons are unaware of their operating room costs. Objective: To examine the association between providing surgeons with individualized cost feedback and surgical supply costs in the operating room. Design, Setting, and Participants: The OR Surgical Cost Reduction (OR SCORE) project was a single-health system, multihospital, multidepartmental prospective controlled study in an urban academic setting...

BACKGROUND: Sclerodermatomyositis is an overlap syndrome of myositis and scleroderma, with dermatological, muscular and joint involvement, but may also present with ocular manifestations. CLINICAL CASE: A 57 year-old woman presented with ophthalmological manifestations, including scleral thinning 360°, and the presence of cells in the anterior and posterior chamber. Oriented physical examination and laboratory studies led to the diagnosis, with the need for systemic treatment...

PURPOSE: To study rule similarity (isorule or anisorule) and symmetry patterns of axes (direct and mirror) in bilateral astigmatism. METHODS: Six years of data were collected from four ophthalmology clinics in Tehran. After applying the exclusion criteria (having eye disease or history of ocular surgery), final analyses were performed on data of 160 608 cases whose mean age was 39.2 ± 15.4 years (10-80 years) and 53.7% female. All subjects had autorefraction, retinoscopy, and subjective refraction data...

BACKGROUND: Diabetic dermopathy is one of the most prevalent skin complications in diabetes patients. Some studies have pointed to association of diabetic dermopathy with retinopathy and nephropathy in patients with type 2 diabetes as microangiopathy presentations, but no rigorous study has been conducted to confirm this association. OBJECTIVES: This study investigated association of diabetic dermopathy with nephropathy and retinopathy in patients with type 2 diabetes referring specialty clinic of Shahrekord...

INTRODUCTION: Wipple disease (WD) is a rare chronic disease caused by the bacillus Tropheryma whipplei. Constitutive, rheumatologic, gastrointestinal, cardiac, cerebral, lymphatic, cutaneous, and ophthalmological signs are possible systemic symptoms. However, thrombotic manifestations are rarely described as "stroke-like syndrome" or arterial thrombosis. Diagnosis is based on clinical manifestations and pathological examination. Laboratory findings may include anemia, leukocytosis, and thrombocytosis...

BACKGROUND: Across Canada, graduates from several medical and surgical specialties have recently had difficulty securing practice opportunities, especially in specialties dependent upon limited resources. In most developed nations, cataract surgery is the most common operation performed, making practice opportunities sensitive to access to health system resources and making this procedure an exemplar of issues facing resource-intensive specialties. METHODS: We used population-based administrative data from Ontario for the period Jan...

Methods: A total of 50 open-angle glaucoma subjects and 50 healthy age- and sex-matched controls underwent detailed ophthalmologic examinations (including visual field testing [VF], funduscopy, and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography) as well as diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) using 3...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the long term effect of oral isotretinoin therapy on macula ganglion cell complex (GCC) thickness by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Newly diagnosed cystic acne patients who received low dose for a long time systemic isotretinoin therapy were included to study. Thorough ophthalmic evaluation and GCC thickness analysis by using SD-OCT were performed at baseline, and at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months of treatment...
