Clinical study of the influence of preoperative wearing time on postoperative effects in children with partially accommodative esotropia.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of the preoperative wearing time on the postoperative effect in children with partially accommodative esotropia.Sixty children with partially accommodative esotropia who visited our hospital were placed in full cycloplegic refraction by using 1% Atropine eye gel and then wore full hyperopic correction glasses. Children were divided into groups A and B according to the preoperative wearing time. The visual acuity, eye position, and results of the synoptophore and Titmus stereoacuity tests were recorded before and half a year after the surgery in each group, and appropriate statistical analyses were conducted.Half a year after the operation, 54 cases achieved orthotropia when wearing full hyperopic correction glasses. One case was overcorrected. Five cases were undercorrected. The results of the synoptophore and Titmus stereoacuity test showed that there was no significant difference between postoperative outcomes for patients who wore glasses for half a year and for 1 year before the operation.For children with partially accommodative esotropia, surgery should be used to correct the eye position after wearing full hyperopic correction glasses for half a year to improve the eye position and binocular vision as early as possible. If the operation cannot be completed after the patient wears full hyperopic correction glasses for half a year due to various subjective and objective factors, a good postoperative effect can be obtained if the patients receive surgery after wearing full hyperopic correction glasses for 1 year.

A rare case of ocular scarrings in a patient with Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease.

We here report the case of a 27-year old patient, followed-up in our Department for treatment of chronic Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease ( VKH disease). Fundus examination showed depigmentation of the retinal pigment epithelium and of the choroid, appearing as a pseudotumoral peripapillary lesion. Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease is a multisystem disorder, characterized by bilateral granulomatous panuveitis with serous exudative multifocal retinal detachment. Pathophysiology of this disease is unknown, but an immunological cellular reaction against melanocytes of the skin, the meninges, the retina, the uvea, the cochlea and the labyrinth is suspected. This disease mainly occurs in young subjects from the Far East as well as in pigmented subjects. Ocular involvement is often associated with neurological (meningeal stiffness, headache, sometimes associated with focal deficit and erebrospinal fluid (CSF) pleocytosis), auditory ( perceptive deafness) and cutaneous (vitiligo, poliosis, alopecia and canities) manifestations. It usually evolves in three phases: a prodromal phase mainly characterized by neurological signs, an acute uveitic phase, a chronic phase of convalescence characterized by choroidal and tegument depigmentation or a phase of recurrence during which subretinal neovessels and subretinal fibrosis may appear. Scarrings manifest during the chronic phase of VKH disease, which is dominated by diffuse depigmentation of the fundus of the eye, scars due to nummular chorioretinal atrophy, wheals due to diffuse depigmentation, macular scar remodeling. Pseudotumoral appearance is rare and atypical during the chronic phase of VKH disease. Treatment is based on intravenous corticosteroids followed by a cycle of oral therapy. Patient should be early treated with massive and prolonged therapy to improve prognosis.

Changes of corneal high-order aberrations after femtosecond laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis.

Femtosecond laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (FS-LASIK) has gained widespread popularity as a safe, effective and predictable treatment for correcting myopia and myopic astigmatism.However, complications such as biomechanical changes, structural weakness, dry eye and induction of high-order aberrations (HOAs) have been associated with FS laser excision. The induction of HOAs has been reported to reduce quality of vision, leading to increased glare, halos, starburst and deterioration of contrast function corneal HOAs play a significant role in whole-eye aberration. Thus, it is necessary to investigate the changes of corneal high-order aberrations after FS-LASIK.

Usefulness of 18F-FDG PET/CT for evaluating response of ocular adnexal lymphoma to treatment.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy of F-fluoro-deoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) for evaluating the ocular adnexal lymphoma treatment responses.We retrospectively reviewed data for 9 histologically confirmed cases of malignant lymphoma. All patients had at least one ocular adnexal tumor site and underwent FDG PET/CT before and after treatment. Patients' histological disease subtypes included diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (n = 3), mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma (n = 2), follicular lymphoma (n = 1), NK/T-cell lymphoma (n = 1), lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma (n = 1), and Hodgkin lymphoma (n = 1). The highest FDG uptake by the ocular adnexal lesions was calculated as the maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax). FDG uptake at ocular adnexal sites and sites of systemic disease after treatment were also assessed using the 5-point Deauville scale.In 1 of the 9 patients, a conjunctival lesion could not be detected by either pre- or posttreatment PET/CT. For 8 of the 9 patients, the SUVmax value at the ocular adnexal site significantly decreased after treatment (7.1 ± 5.1 vs 1.6 ± 0.58; P = .0196). For 7 of the 9 patients, the first posttreatment FDG uptake at the ocular adnexal site was considered a complete metabolic response, and these patients showed an improved clinical ophthalmic presentation with no relapse at ocular adnexal sites during follow-up.FDG PET/CT is useful for evaluation of the response of ocular adnexal lymphoma to treatment, although its usefulness may depend on the histological subtype and site of the lesion.

Optic neuropathy causing vertical unilateral hemianopsia after pars plana vitrectomy for a macular hole: A case report.

Recent progress in medical technology has resulted in improved surgical outcomes of pars plana vitrectomy (PPV); with microincision systems, the incidence of procedure-related complications during surgery has been reduced. However, unpredictable visual field defects after PPV remain an unresolved issue. A few reports have shown that damage to the retinal neurofibers owing to dry-up during air/fluid exchange or retinal neurotoxicity of the dye used to visualize the internal limiting membrane (ILM), as well as unintentional removal of retinal neurofibers during ILM peeling, are responsible for such visual field disorders. In this report, we present a case of extensive visual field defect due to optic neuropathy exhibiting vertical hemianopsia after PPV.

NUDT15 R139C variation increases the risk of azathioprine-induced toxicity in Chinese subjects: Case report and literature review.

Azathioprine (AZA) is widely used as an immunosuppressive agent, and its efficacy has been recommended by many clinical studies. However, leukopenia, the most common toxicity, still restricts its clinical applications. Recent studies found that NUDT15 R139C polymorphism is strongly associated with AZA-induced leukopenia in Koreans. However, the follow-up studies available are all limited to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Here, we report a case of a Chinese patient with Sjögren syndrome (SS) with wild-type TPMT*3C who was diagnosed with AZA-induced severe toxicity due to NUDT15 mutation based on clinical and laboratory characteristics.

Plasma rich in growth factors membrane as coadjuvant treatment in the surgery of ocular surface disorders.

To evaluate the safety and efficacy of the surgical use of plasma rich in growth factors fibrin membrane (mPRGF) in different ocular surface pathologies.Fifteen patients with different corneal and conjunctival diseases were included in the study. Patients were grouped according to the use of mPRGF as graft (corneal and/or conjunctival) or dressing; they were also grouped according to the surgical subgroup of intervention (persistent corneal ulcer [PCU], keratoplasty, superficial keratectomy, corneal perforation, and pterygium). Best corrected visual acuity, intraocular pressure (IOP), inflammation control time (ICT), mPRGF AT (PRGF membrane absorption time), and the healing time of the epithelial defect (HTED) were evaluated throughout the clinical follow-up time. Safety assessment was also performed reporting all adverse events.mPRGF showed a total closure of the defect in 13 of 15 patients (86.7%) and a partial closure in 2 patients (13.3%). The mean follow-up time was 11.1 ± 4.2 (4.8-22.8) months, the mean ICT was 2.5 ± 1.1 (1.0-4.0) months, the mean mPRGF AT was 12.4 ± 2.0 (10.0-16.0) days, and for the global HTED the mean was 2.9 ± 1.2 (1-4.8) months. Results showed an improvement in BCVA in all patients, with an overall improvement of 2.9 in Vision Lines. The BCVA significantly improved (P < .05) in the groups of corneal graft and dressing. In the PCU subgroup (6 patients), the healing time of epithelial defect was significantly reduced (P < .05) in patients treated only with the mPRGF in comparison to those which mPRGF therapy was associated to the amniotic membrane. The IOP remained stable (P > .05) throughout the clinical follow-up time. No adverse events were reported after mPRGF use.The mPRGF is effective and safe as coadjuvant treatment in surgeries related with ocular surface disorders, being an alternative to the use of amniotic membrane. The mPRGF accelerates tissue regeneration after ocular surface surgery thus minimizing inflammation and fibrosis.

Diabetic macular oedema: under-represented in the genetic analysis of diabetic retinopathy.

Diabetic retinopathy, a complication of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, is a complex disease and is one of the leading causes of blindness in adults worldwide. It can be divided into distinct subclasses, one of which is diabetic macular oedema. Diabetic macular oedema can occur at any time in diabetic retinopathy and is the most common cause of vision loss in patients with type 2 diabetes. The purpose of this review is to summarize the large number of genetic association studies that have been performed in cohorts of patients with type 2 diabetes and published in English-language journals up to February 2017. Many of these studies have produced positive associations with gene polymorphisms and diabetic retinopathy. However, this review highlights that within this large body of work, studies specifically addressing a genetic association with diabetic macular oedema, although present, are vastly under-represented. We also highlight that many of the studies have small patient numbers and that meta-analyses often inappropriately combine patient data sets. We conclude that there will continue to be conflicting results and no meaningful findings will be achieved if the historical approach of combining all diabetic retinopathy disease states within patient cohorts continues in future studies. This review also identifies several genes that would be interesting to analyse in large, well-defined cohorts of patients with diabetic macular oedema in future candidate gene association studies.

Expression of cytokines in aqueous humor from fungal keratitis patients.

Budget impact model of Mydrane®, a new intracameral injectable used for intra-operative mydriasis, from a UK hospital perspective.

During cataract surgery, maintaining an adequate degree of mydriasis throughout the entire operation is critical to allow for visualisation of the capsulorhexis and the crystalline lens. Good anaesthesia is also essential for safe intraocular surgery. Mydrane® is a new injectable intracameral solution containing two mydriatics (tropicamide 0.02% and phenylephrine 0.31%) and one anaesthetic (lidocaine 1%) that was developed as an alternative to the conventional topical pre-operative mydriatics used in cataract surgery. This study aimed to estimate the budget impact across a one year time frame using Mydrane® instead of topical dilating eye drops, for a UK hospital performing 3,000 cataract operations a year.

The effect of fenofibrate on early retinal nerve fiber layer loss in type 2 diabetic patients: a case-control study.

Previous studies suggested that use of fenofibrate could significantly reduce the rate of progression into diabetic retinopathy (DR), and that retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) loss, which has been considered an important indicator for retinal neurodegeneration, might precede microvascular changes. The aim of this study was to assess the effect(s) of fenofibrate on RNFL thickness at early stage of DR in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM).

Central retinal artery occlusion - rethinking retinal survival time.

The critical time from onset of complete occlusion of the central retinal artery (CRA) to functionally significant inner retinal infarction represents a window of opportunity for treatment and also has medical-legal implications, particularly when central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) complicates therapeutic interventions. Here, we review the evidence for time to infarction from complete CRAO and discuss the implications of our findings.
