Authors: Yaşa D, Ürdem U, Ağca A, Yildirim Y, Kepez Yildiz B, Kandemir Beşek N, Yiğit U, Demirok A Abstract Purpose: To report clinical results of a foldable, hydrophilic acrylic, single-piece, injectable, posterior chamber phakic intraocular lens (pIOL). Material and Methods: Medical records of patients who underwent posterior chamber phakic IOL (Eyecryl Phakic IOL, Biotech Vision Care, Ahmedabad, India) implantation for surgical correction of myopia were retrospectively reviewed. Only patients with at least a one-year follow-up were included. Manifest refraction, uncorrected distance visual acuity (U...

To determine whether grating acuity at age 12 months can be used to predict recognition acuity at age 4.5 years in children treated for unilateral congenital cataract enrolled in the Infant Aphakia Treatment Study (IATS).
To compare the results of manual limbal relaxing incisions (LRIs) performed during conventional phacoemulsification surgery with those of nonpenetrating femtosecond laser arcuate keratotomies performed during femtosecond laser–assisted cataract surgery to manage corneal astigmatism.
ConclusionThis is the first description of a Japanese patient with arRP caused byRP1 mutations. Additional data are necessary to more accurately determine the clinical course and mutation spectrum in patients withRP1-related arRP.
Myotonic dystrophy type 2 (DM2) is a dominantly inherited multisystem disorder caused by a CCTG repeat expansion in intron 1 of the CNBP gene on chromosome 3q21.3. DM2 is characterized by progressive proximal muscle weakness, myotonia, early-onset cataract, and multiorgan involvement including cardiac conduction abnormalities, gastrointestinal involvement and endocrine disturbances . Autoimmune diseases are more prevalent (21%) and autoantibodies are more frequently detected (25%) in patients with DM2 compared to patients with myotonic dystrophy type 1 and the general population .
ConclusionThis report of Danish siblings with YHFS serves to expand the presentation of this new syndrome to include features in keeping with a form of microcephalic primordial dwarfism on the severe end of the clinical spectrum, and adds two novel mutations to the TELO2 mutational spectrum. Recently, compound heterozygous loss‐of‐function mutations in TELO2 were shown to underlie You‐Hoover‐Fong syndrome. Patients with mutations in TELO2 present with microcephaly and associated intellectual disability, postnatal growth retardation and dysmorphic features. Here, we describe Danish siblings with two novel mutations...
Conclusions During the past decade the incidence of severe childhood visual impairment and blindness declined in Israel. A continuous decline in consanguineous marriages among the Jewish and Arab populations in Israel may have contributed to the decrease in the rate of vision loss due to retinitis pigmentosa in children.
