Conclusions: SWS affects approximately 0.19/100,000/year in Olmsted County. Early diagnosis, intervention, lifelong follow-up, and multidisciplinary approach should be used to optimize systemic and ocular outcomes. PMID: 32233696 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Honglertnapakul W, Capo H, Cavuoto KM, McKeown CA Abstract Purpose: To quantify the amount of insertion shift after disinsertion of the rectus muscles and identify factors that may influence the shift.Methods: Patients who underwent rectus muscle surgery between November 2018 and April 2019 were included. During surgery, the limbal-insertion distance (LID) distance was measured in millimeters with calipers from the limbus to the center of the insertion at the anterior border of the rectus muscle prior to and after disinsertion. The primary outcome was the shift of the rectus muscle insertion after disinser...

He had previously undergone multiple sectoral ab externo rigid-probe trabeculotomy in both eyes and subsequently Baervelt glaucoma implantion in both eyes, with adequate intraocular pressure control. Examination revealed subfoveal choroidal neovascular...

ConclusionsPatients with EDS may have elevated risk of postoperative ophthalmic surgical complications. It would seem reasonable to systemically and prospectively explore how patients with EDS respond to ophthalmic surgery. Furthermore, it would seem circumspect to ask surgical candidates patients about whether they carry a diagnosis of EDS or have signs and symptoms of EDS prior to surgery.

Khan, James BaconA 56-year-old woman with pseudophakia and glaucoma was referred because of left eye hypotropia and esotropia noted following superotemporal Ahmed glaucoma valve implantation in that eye. 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...

Conclusion: Stereoacuity decreases with increasing grades of cataract. Better stereoacuity is seen in patients with bilateral pseudophakia when compared with high grades of cataract.

ConclusionsIn our study cohort, early surgery for PFV achieved functional visual acuity in about one-third of patients. Limbal approach to surgery may result in better visual acuity and anatomic results.
