Pediatric retinal damage due to soccer-ball-related injury: Results from the last decade.
CONCLUSION: Soccer-ball blunt trauma in children can cause significant posterior segment injuries regardless of the presence of external injury or ocular complaints. A thorough ocular exam is mandatory in all cases for the detection of vision-threatening retinal injuries.

Levator recession and minimal lateral tarsorrhaphy for the management of lagophthalmos and corneal exposure in facial palsy.
Abstract PURPOSE: Recession of levator muscle can potentially decrease the severity of corneal exposure by reducing margin-reflex distance 1. The purpose of this study is evaluation of effects of levator recession on lagophthalmos in facial palsy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a non-comparative case series of consecutive patients with exposure keratopathy due to facial paralysis between 2012 and 2017, levator recession was performed through lid crease incision. Small-size (⩽3 mm) lateral tarsorrhaphy was performed on a case-by-case basis for those with moderate-to-severe keratopathy. Preoperative and postoperat...

Novel USH1G homozygous variant underlying USH2-like phenotype of Usher syndrome.
CONCLUSIONS: Genetic and phenotypic heterogeneity are very common in both isolated and syndromic retinal dystrophies and sensorineural hearing loss. Our findings widen the spectrum of USH allelic disorders and strength the concept that variants in genes that are classically known as underlying one specific clinical USH subtype might result in unexpected phenotypes.

Safety and efficacy of high-intensity focused ultrasound in severe or refractory glaucoma.
CONCLUSION: The efficacy of ultrasonic cyclocoagulation in the present study is comparable to that reported in the literature. The kinetics of intraocular pressure and flare suggest that postoperative inflammation could be partly responsible for the early intraocular pressure decrease. The moderate endothelial cell loss, which could be caused by localized heating, and the preservation of quality of life confirm the safety of ultrasonic cyclocoagulation.

Unilateral spontaneous filtering bleb dissecting into the cornea in a patient with high myopia.
CONCLUSION: The formation of a spontaneous filtering bleb is a rare entity in patients with high myopia, whose risk increases due to their thinned sclerae. The risk is even greater if they have undergone ocular surgeries. Resection of the filtering bleb in our case halted the progression of the corneal dissection, therefore respecting the transparency of the visual axis and preserving visual acuity.

Abstract Dysfunction of the third cranial nerve can be provoked by a number of different conditions. An isolated cranial neuropathy as a first clinical sign of a non-Hodgkin lymphoma is very infrequent.

Clinical and material degradations of intraocular lenses: A review.
CONCLUSION: Clinical degradations of intraocular lenses are uncommon but have been reported following the implantation of intraocular lenses made of differing biomaterials. Their correct identification and thorough investigation to determine the underlying cause is necessary for optimal patient management and the prevention of such problems. Choosing a lens made of a particular material may be important in patients with certain ocular conditions.

Ocular changes in traumatic brain injury: A review.
Abstract Traumatic brain injury is represented by a penetrating or non-penetrating head injury, which causes disruption in the normal functioning of the brain. Traumatic brain injury has been an ardently debated topic of discussion due to its prevalence in media centric persons such as military personnel and athletes. Current assessments for traumatic brain injury have looked at vestibulo-ocular and vascular parameters to aid in diagnosis. Innovations in non-invasive ophthalmic imaging have allowed for the visualization of specific tissue structure/function relationships in a variety of ophthalmic and neurodegener...

The effect of tea tree oil on dry eye treatment after phacoemulsification cataract surgery: A randomized clinical trial.
Abstract PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of eyelid scrubbing with eye shampoo containing tea tree oil on dry eye disease following phacoemulsification cataract surgery. METHODS: This prospective triple-blinded randomized clinical trial was performed on 62 eyes of 62 patients. Patients were randomly assigned to two groups-(1) treatment group: for 33 patients in the treatment group, artificial tears, topical steroid drops, and eye shampoos with tea tree oil and (2) for 29 patients in the control group, artificial tears, topical steroids, and eye shampoos without tea tree oil were used. In the first and second (...

Post-traumatic orbitorrhea: An underestimated life-threatening complication following anterior skull base fractures.
Abstract Orbitorrhea is defined as a leak of cerebrospinal fluid from a cranio-orbital fistula. It is usually related to anterior skull base trauma. Orbitorrhea is an exceptional and life-threatening condition which should be promptly managed. We herein report the case of a right post-traumatic orbitorrhea following anterior skull base trauma. Conservative treatment was initially attempted. At 6 weeks, recurrence was noted, and the patient underwent neurosurgical management. A few months later, a secondary upper lid retraction was diagnosed and treated by full-thickness skin graft with favourable outcome. To our k...

Comparison of using Galilei Dual Scheimpflug Analyzer G4 and Barrett formula in predicting low cylinder preoperatively for cataract surgeries.
Abstract PURPOSE: To compare corneal astigmatism estimation from Barrett toric calculator, with measurement from Galilei Dual Scheimpflug Analyzer G4 in low corneal cylinder patients. METHODS: Preoperative corneal astigmatism was measured using Auto Kerato-Refractometer (AutoKM), IOL Master, and Galilei G4 (combined Placido-dual Scheimpflug analyzer) and was processed by Barrett toric calculator with measurements obtained from Auto Kerato-Refractometer and from IOL Master. A total of 42 eyes undergoing cataract surgery with nontoric intraocular lens implantation were included. Corneal astigmatism was calculat...
