For most of us, the uncertainty of the future looms in the foreground of our minds, in the face of the new pandemic as we wade through the muddy headlines pouring into our daily news feeds. I find myself fastened into the driver’s seat of the automobile of my own anxieties, squeamishly yet cautiously and ever-so-steadily steering past the collisions of the crisis as I try to move forward, only to find myself unable to look away from the disaster always tailing just a few feet from behind me.  Each of us are faced with dealing with the uneasiness of the new “abnormal” and we all share one common denom...

Authors: Moorthy S, Theodorou M, Hancox J, Adams GG Abstract Purpose: Ocular motility disturbances following retinal detachment surgery are well documented, resulting in ocular misalignment and disabling diplopia. Interestingly, there has been a downward trend over the last decade across the United Kingdom with the evolution of refined vitrectomy techniques and instrumentation. We aim to report our updated experience on factors influencing botulinum toxin outcomes in view of the trend toward vitrectomy.Methods: The Moorfields strabismus service carried out a follow-up retrospective study of all subjects that receiv...

Conclusion: Almost half of the participants had good knowledge. Occupation and monthly income had a significant association with knowledge about strabismus. Since the source of information (TV/radio and Internet) was extremely important for the reliability and the level of knowledge, it is better to have sufficient media coverage. PMID: 32377416 [PubMed]

Conclusions: IO-E is a rare congenital dysplasia variation of the extraocular muscle, which could appear as inferior oblique overaction. It is difficult to diagnose before surgery, and weakening the overactive ectopic inferior oblique was required for better prognosis if this condition was confirmed during surgery.

Authors: Simonsz HJ, Wade NJ Abstract After the rapid spread of strabismus surgery by total tenotomy, which had been proposed by the orthopedist Louis Stromeyer from Göttingen in 1838 and performed by the plastic surgeon Johann Friedrich Dieffenbach on October 26th and by the ophthalmologist Florent Cunier on October 29th, 1839, brilliant researchers studied the physiology of eye movements, resulting in the laws by Franciscus Cornelis Donders on pseudotorsion in tertiary positions of gaze and by Johann Benedict Listing that each eye position can be reached by rotation about an axis perpendicular to the primary...
