Axial length for 7-8 years pupils of in Southwest China. Strabismus. 2019 Dec 24;:1-5 Authors: Qiu K, Zhang Y Abstract To assess eye axial length (AL), spherical equivalent (SE), astigmatic power, distance unaided visual acuity (UCVA), and their relationship in 7- and 8-year-old pupils in Kunming, Southwest China. Grade I and grade II pupils underwent measurement of AL, UCVA, and refraction. The associations of AL with SE, UCVA and astigmatic power were studied. 291 pupils enrolled with 50.2% girls. AL was 22.71 ± 0.61 mm in children with emmetropia (UCVA> 0.8, -0.50
Conclusions for PracticeRefractive errors are more common in children born of mothers with GD. These conditions are easily managed, but if they are not detected, they can lead to amblyopia or accommodative strabismus, interfere with acquisition of fine motor skills, and lead to learning problems. Regular ocular examinations would be recommended in these patients.
This report aims to present the ophthalmological features, and identify the diagnosis and outcomes of strabismus surgery in AS patients. Diagnosis: Three children with exotropia were diagnosed with AS based on their typical clinical features. Interventions: All patients underwent multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) analysis and accepted lateral rectus recession surgery with the assistance of intravenous combined inhalation anesthesia. Outcomes: The maternal heritage deletion of chromosome 15q11.2-q13 was verified in all patients by MLPA. All patients with strabismus could not cooperate during t...
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.
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.

CONCLUSION: Screening for ametropia might occur earlier if it is associated with pediatric monitoring in our regions. PMID: 31235321 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
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.
CONCLUSION: Axial length and risk factors of amblyopia such as anisometropia, hyperopia, and strabismus were not associated with UCNLDO. UCNLDO is likely an isolated defect.

The patients were followed for at least 3 months postope...
CONCLUSION: Patients with Leigh syndrome, French Canadian type display a variety of ophthalmic findings, and screening at a young age is recommended. PMID: 30426811 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
