We describe a rare case where an extra-large V pattern (>60 Prism Dioptres (PD)) was present along with large exotropia (70 PD). Craniosynostosis or facial asymmetry was not present. The extra-ocular motility evaluation revealed mild over-elevation in adduction and extreme divergence in up-gaze. Examination of the fundus showed ex-cyclotorsion of both the globes. The V pattern was managed by bilateral inferior oblique muscle recession and full thickness upshift of both lateral rectus muscles. The exotropia was treated by bilateral lateral rectus recession and right eye medial rectus resection. Postoperatively, both the ...

Examination suggested left heavy eye syndrome, and it was confirmed the patient had high axial myopia before her cataract surgeries. Both nasal displacement of the left superior rectus muscle and inferior displacement of the left lateral rectus muscle were noted intraoperati...

ConclusionsOur telemedicine program found a higher percentage of diabetic retinopathy screening non-mydriatic photographs than prior studies found through standard ophthalmic examinations. In this relatively small sample size, longer duration of disease and higher average A1c were associated with increased risk of having diabetic retinopathy in our study.
