We conducted a prospective randomized study to compare outcomes of intravitreal Bevacizumab versus diode laser in thirty eyes of fifteen premature babies with zone 1 or posterior zone 2 retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). We recorded complications, regression/reactivation of ROP, visual outcome, refractive error and systemic complications. The Bevacizumab treated eyes showed rapid regression of the ROP with resolution of plus disease and flattening of the ridge at 48 hours post injection. In 3 Bevacizumab treated eyes, reactivation occurred and were treated with laser (3 eyes) or a further Bevacizumab injection (1 eye)...

Aris Konstantopoulos, Jodhbir S Mehta
Presbyopia, the physiological change in near vision that develops with ageing, gradually affects individuals older than 40 years and is a growing cause of visual disability due to ageing demographics of the global population. The routine use of computers and 'smartphones', combined with the affluence of the 'baby boomers' generation has set high standards for near vision correction. Corneal inlays are a relatively new treatment modality that is effective at compensating for presbyopia. The dimensions of these devices vary from 2 to 3...

The article presents a review of the data, which reflects the relevance and modern views on the problem of retinopathy of prematurity, including statistical and epidemiologic data on nosology. Various pathogenetic theories of onset and progression of this disease are discussed. A clear correlation depending on the degree of prematurity, body weight and physical condition of the newborn and the risk of disease is mentioned. The summation of etiology aspects, as well as pathogenesis, classification of clinical forms and the modern approach to the diagnostics is of a quite interest...

REVIEW
S Bidot, P Dureau, G Caputo
The first 2 years of life are essential to visual development. The ophthalmological examination of a baby is different from that of an adult, in terms of both methodology and clinical signs. The specifics of examination at this age require a rigorous history taking as a first step: personal and family medical history, first sign of the disease and its progression. Cycloplegic refraction and fundus exam are both critical regardless of the reason for consultation. In addition, fundus exam must be performed at the first visit in cases of strabismus, nystagmus, or abnormal visual function, in order to rule out underlying retinoblastoma...

BACKGROUND: Refractive status at birth is related to gestational age. Preterm babies have myopia which decreases as gestational age increases and term babies are known to be hypermetropic. This study looked at the correlation of refractive status with birth weight in term and preterm babies, and with physical indicators of intra-uterine growth such as the head circumference and length of the baby at birth. METHODS: All babies delivered at St. Stephens Hospital and admitted in the nursery were eligible for the study...

INTRODUCTION: Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a disease of the retina and the vitreous body present in children prematurely born. In the groups of babies with retinopathy of prematurity as well as among in the group of babies without pathological lesions, however, with retinal immaturity, occurrence of complications in the form of refractive errors and abnormality in the eyeballs position can be observed. The aim of the study was to analyze the frequency of occurrence of hypermetropia, myopia, astigmatism and eyeballs position disorders in the form of strabismus and nystagmus in premature babies...
