Nasal loop myopexy as a primary procedure to correct exotropia hypotropia complex in high myopia.

CONCLUSION: The combination of recession and resection procedures with nasal loop myopexy was found to be effective in correcting the ocular deviation and limitation to elevation in abduction by correcting the deflected course of superior rectus and medial rectus to result in an effective improvement of elevation in abduction. One case had an overcorrection of exotropia. There were no other major complications. PMID: 31612771 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Ophthalmological morbidities in premature infants such as refractive errors and strabismus are high in addition to complications like ROP. The incidence of these conditions is more in infants with ROP when compared to non-ROP group.

Authors: Zhang Y, Qiu K, Zhang Q Abstract Introduction: To explore the prevalence of visual impairment due to uncorrected ametropia from primary students in multi-ethnic regions of Yunnan (China). Methods: Primary school students of 7 ~ 12 years old from 5 multi-ethnic regions were screened. Cycloplegic refraction and subjective trial lens were both performed for all those distance unaided visual acuity

Conclusion Patients with stage 2 or higher ROP remain at significant risk for ophthalmological morbidity through 2 years of age. Infants with regression of subthreshold ROP who do not require treatment represent an underrecognized population at long-term ophthalmological risk. ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier NCT01559571.

This article discusses the unique needs of pediatric patients and how artificial intelligence techniques can address these challenges, surveys recent applications to pediatric ophthalmology, and discusses future directions. Recent findings The most significant advances involve the automated detection of retinopathy of prematurity, yielding results that rival experts. Machine learning has also been applied to the classification of pediatric cataracts, prediction of postoperative complications following cataract surgery, detection of strabismus and refractive error, prediction of future high myopia, and diagnosis of readi...

To evaluate possible effects on strabismus surgical dosing in myopia, we used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to examine the relationship between axial length (AL) and ocular rotational axis during adduction and abduction.

CONCLUSION: Screening for ametropia might occur earlier if it is associated with pediatric monitoring in our regions. PMID: 31235321 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

"Yokoyama procedure" efficacy on non-highly myopic patients with acquired esotropia and hypotropia. Eur J Ophthalmol. 2019 May 20;:1120672119850684 Authors: Serafino M, Scaramuzzi M, Villani E, Nucci P Abstract OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy of "Yokoyama Procedure," on non-highly myopic patients with acquired esotropia and hypotropia. METHODS: The study involved 10 eyes of 5 patients with eso-hypotropia. Inclusion criteria were acquired esotropic-hypotropic strabismus with lateral rectus inferior displacement and superior rectus nasal displacement confirmed by magnetic reso...

ConclusionsThe specificity of the Spot Vision Screener to detect refractive errors was found to be relatively high (>90%). However, its low sensitivity for hyperopia seems to remain a major limitation of the device, because hyperopia is particularly important to detect in children given its high prevalence and possible adverse consequences. Global programs using cycloplegic measurements should be considered an alternative.

Discussion Nystagmus is periodic eye movement that is involuntary where there is a slow drift of fixation. The slow drift can be followed by a fast saccade back to fixation. The pathological movement is the slow phase, but nystagmus is described by the fast phase (i.e. horizontal nystagmus, vertical nystagmus). Spasmus nutans (SN) is a movement disorder that is rare. The classic triad includes nystagmus, head bobbing or titubation, and torticollis, with these problems being in the absence of any ophthalmological or neurological condition. Onset is in the first year of life but ranges from 6-36 months. Time to resolution ...
