Efficacy of Intravitreal Bevacizumab for the Treatment of Zone I Type 1 Retinopathy of Prematurity.

Conclusion: Intravitreal bevacizumab injection is an effective method for the management of patients with Zone I ROP requiring treatment; however, some cases may progress to more advanced stages and require surgical management. Close monitoring for recurrence or progression is necessary. Eyes with persistent zone I ROP may progress to advanced stages when treated with intravitreal bevacizumab injection and re-treatment may be needed. PMID: 29403586 [PubMed]

CONCLUSION: Morbidity associated with ophthalmic pediatric surgery is low and predominantly associated with strabismus surgery. The benefit-risk ratio and cost-effectiveness of oculocardiac reflex prevention should be questioned. Our postoperative nausea and vomiting rate is low, thanks to the use of a well-managed multimodal strategy. Early postoperative pain is usually well-treated but could probably be more effectively prevented. PMID: 30280604 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We present a case of a patient who was blind in 1 eye from neovascular glaucoma after 2 treatments with cyclophotocoagulation and who then presented with neovascular glaucoma in his only seeing eye. Following failure of cyclophotocoagulation, a Xen implant was performed due to multiple medical comorbitidies, which meant that the patient was not suitable for conventional surgery. Twelve months, after the Xen implant, the patient underwent uncomplicated cataract extraction and lens implant followed by laser capsulotomy at 15 months after Xen implant. At final follow-up (24 months after the Xen implant), the intraocular press...

ConclusionsTrigeminal neuralgia is a rare cause of postoperative ophthalmic pain and is a challenging diagnosis for the ophthalmologist. It is necessary to consider the differential diagnosis of atypical pain after ophthalmic surgery.

ABSTRACT Nature has always provided an unlimited source of biologically-active compounds. Since the beginning of mankind, humans have sought resources in fauna and flora to treat eye diseases. However, it was only after the Industrial Revolution that extracts of plants and substances of animal origin could be used safely, as has been determined by controlled interventional studies. Two major challenges faced by ocular pharmacology are the following: developing drugs that are able to reduce blindness due to glaucoma; and controlling the pain associated with eye surgery. The search for a drug that effectively lowers intraocu...

Conclusion: Ropivacaine is a good alternative for deep topical anesthesia as it has a better safety margin and lesser toxic effect than other comparable local anesthetic agents.

Abstract In vivo imaging of mouse retinas using two-photon or confocal laser scanning fluorescence microscopy is a powerful tool for time-lapse analyses of the dynamic movements of cell populations. However, acute and reversible opacification of the crystalline lenses of mouse eyes under anesthesia decreases the visibility of the ocular fundus. Therefore, we developed a customized contact lens for preventing cataract during continuous retinal imaging in anesthetized mice. This experimental approach will aid in the elucidation of cellular and molecular dynamics in the CNS under physiological and pathological c...

In this report, we describe a patient who developed primary angle-closure glaucoma (ACG) with associated vision loss after a oculoplastic procedure using local anesthesia. So far, six similar cases have been described in the literature. It is believed that acute ACG is triggered by the surgical procedure in patients with predisposing risk factors such as a cataract. Surgical triggering factors include the use of buffered lidocaine/xylocaine with adrenaline/epinephrine, stress, and coverage of the eyes postoperatively. Due to postoperative analgesic use, the clinical presentation can be mild and atypical, leading to a signi...
