CONCLUSIONS: The greatest advantage of use of this "heavy" dye solution membrane blue-dual is improved intraoperative identification of ILM at the edges of retinal breaks and the discrimination of them from surrounding intraocular structures. Due to its increased molecular weight and viscosity properties it eliminates the need for fluid-air exchange, injection of PFCL or subretinal injection. PMID: 31802047 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, AT1-AAs were detected in the sera of patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and the positive rate was 44.44% vs. 17.46% in non-PAD volunteers. In addition, analysis showed that AT1-AAs level was positively correlated with PAD. To reveal the causal relationship between AT1-AAs and vascular aging, an AT1-AAs-positive rat model was established by active immunization. The carotid pulse wave velocity was higher, and the aortic endothelium-dependent vasodilatation was attenuated significantly in the immunized rats. Morphological staining showed thickening of the aortic wall. Histological examination showe...

Conclusion: The etiology of the movements of the congenital peripapillary staphyloma in our patient may include a misbalance between intraocular pressure and orbital cerebrospinal fluid pressure or contractions of extraocular muscles. The observations may give information about the physiology and pathophysiology of the optic nerve head.

3D printed digital contact lenses, bionic eye implants, augmented reality eye condition explainers: the future of vision and eye care are full of science fiction-sounding innovations. Here is where digital health will take ophthalmology in the future! More than 80 percent of perception comes through vision Researchers estimate that 80-85 percent of our perception, learning, cognition, and activities are mediated through vision. Compared to that, our hearing only processes 11 percent of information, while smell 3.5 percent, touch 1.5 percent and taste 1 percent. Don’t you think that’s possible? Renowne...

One hundred years ago this year a major conflict was being fought in France on the banks of the river Somme, which some historians argue was the turning point of the World War I.1 As that battle was raging some thousands of miles to the south, in the small town of Lausanne in Switzerland another turning point was occurring not in a geopolitical context but one which would bring credit to mankind; the Gonin method to repair retinal detachments (figure 1). Retinal detachments had been recognised prior to the invention of the ophthalmoscope in 1851, but more often had been included in that undifferentiated clinical grouping k...

Authors: Seider MI, Nomides RE, Hahn P, Mruthyunjaya P, Mahmoud TH Abstract Scleral buckling is a highly successful technique for the repair of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment that requires intra-operative examination of the retina and treatment of retinal breaks via indirect ophthalmoscopy. Data suggest that scleral buckling likely results in improved outcomes for many patients but is declining in popularity, perhaps because of significant advances in vitrectomy instrumentation and visualization systems. Emerging data suggest that chandelier-assisted scleral buckling is safe and has many potential advantages ove...

The main surgical repair options for retinal detachment include pneumatic retinopexy, scleral buckling, pars plana vitrectomy, and combined pars plana vitrectomy and scleral buckle [1 –3]. The suitability of a repair option and the effectiveness of an operation highly depend on the accurate location of the retinal detachment. However, it is hard to clearly observe the whole retina because it is attached to the inside of the eyeball, and doctors commonly observe a part of the re tina through the pupil using an ophthalmoscope or other medical instrument.
