Ophthalmic Complications in Pediatric Uveitis.

CONCLUSIONS: Cataract is the most critical complication in children with uveitis at presentation and raised intraocular pressure occurs at follow-up, perhaps attributed to the treatment. Maculopathy is the most common cause of blindness in these children. PMID: 32649841 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Many aspects of aging correlate with one another, even those with quite different underlying mechanisms and proximate causes. The various forms of root cause damage that result in the aging process, as well as their downstream consequences, all interact with one another. So whether or not any specific correlation teaches us anything about the way in which aging works under the hood is very dependent on the details. That loss of vision and hearing correlate with dementia risk is known, but the relative contribution of different mechanisms is up for debate. How much is due to similar biochemical mechanisms of damage in nervo...

Ab interno trabecular bypass surgery with Schlemm´s canal microstent (Hydrus) for open angle glaucoma. Cochrane Database Syst Rev. 2020 Mar 09;3:CD012740 Authors: Otarola F, Virgili G, Shah A, Hu K, Bunce C, Gazzard G Abstract BACKGROUND: Glaucoma is a leading cause of irreversible blindness. A number of minimally-invasive surgical techniques have been introduced as a treatment to prevent glaucoma from progressing; ab interno trabecular bypass surgery with the Schlemm's canal Hydrus microstent is one of them. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of ab interno trabecular bypass su...

Artificial intelligence (AI) has been studied in ophthalmology since availability of digital information in ophthalmic care. The significant turning point was availability of commercial digital color fundus photography in the late 1990s, which caused digital screening for diabetic retinopathy (DR) to take off. Automated Retinal Disease Assessment software was then developed using machine learning to detect abnormal lesions in fundus to screen DR. The use of this version of AI had not been generalized because the specificity at 45% was not high enough, although the sensitivity reached 90%. The recent breakthrough in machine...

Authors: Ahmad A, Ahsan H Abstract The review article focuses on free radicals and oxidative stress involved in ophthalmological diseases such as retinopathy, cataract, glaucoma, etc. Oxidative stress is considered as a key factor involved in the pathology of many chronic diseases including ophthalmic complication and inflammatory process. Oxidative stress and inflammation are closely related pathophysiological processes and are simultaneously found in many pathological conditions. The free radicals produced oxidize cellular components such as lipids and phospholipids leading to lipid peroxidation and trigger the o...

Authors: Papadopoulos Z Abstract In developed countries, people of advanced age go permanently blind most often due to age-related macular degeneration, while at global level, this disease is the third major cause of blindness, after cataract and glaucoma, according to the World Health Organisation. The number of individuals believed to suffer from the disease throughout the world has been approximated at 50 million. Age-related macular degeneration is classified as non-neovascular (dry, non-exudative) and neovascular (wet, exudative). The exudative form is less common than the non-exudative as it accounts for appr...
