Costs comparison of treating diabetic macular edema with aflibercept, ranibizumab or dexamethasone at 1 year in France (INVICOST study)
CONCLUSION: The difference in total treatment cost is largely explained by the significantly lower frequency of IVI and annual cost of therapy with DXI, compared with AFL and RAN. INVICOST is the first study comparing treatment costs with AFL, DXI and RAN in France in current clinical practice.PMID:34284605 | DOI:10.1177/11206721211033480 (Source: European Journal of Ophthalmology)

Treatment outcomes of photodynamic therapy and findings predicting treatment success in pachychoroid-associated neovascularization
CONCLUSION: Hf-PDT is an effective treatment method usually providing total resolution of subretinal fluid in PNV cases. A high baseline central choroidal thickness and large luminal area may be positive predictive factors in terms of full anatomical response to hf-PDT. It may be possible to plan a more effective treatment strategy by keeping these factors in mind.PMID:34269091 | DOI:10.1177/11206721211033474 (Source: European Journal of Ophthalmology)

OCTA images were acquired in the nasal and temporal quadrants from a cohort of 30 healthy subjects in photopic (miosis) and scotopic (mydriasis) conditions. Patients were divided according to iris color (less pigmented: group L vs more pigmented: group D). Vascular parameters ...

CONCLUSIONS: Iris mass and uveitis which is not responsive to steroids may be ocular manifestations of intraocular lymphoma, such as NK cell lymphoma. Ophthalmological and systemic examinations should be required for early diagnosis and treatment.PMID:34254538 | DOI:10.1177/11206721211029136 (Source: European Journal of Ophthalmology)

Short-term effectiveness prognostic factors after dexamethasone intravitreal implant in macular edema due to retinal vein occlusion
Eur J Ophthalmol. 2021 Jul 13:11206721211032520. doi: 10.1177/11206721211032520. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to describe functional and anatomical changes (best-corrected visual acuity [BCVA], central macular thickness [CMT], and central macular volume [CMV]) in patients with macular edema (ME) secondary to retinal vein occlusion (RVO) treated with intravitreal dexamethasone implant (IDI) and identify its clinical predictors in a real-world setting.METHODS: Data from 111 patients who underwent IDI to treat RVO-associated ME were retrospectively reviewed. Demographic, preoperative, ...

Telephone-based consultation in an acute eye clinic service: A patient satisfaction survey
CONCLUSIONS: The telephone consultations introduced in the wake of COVID-19 are well accepted by both patients and doctors. There are some limitations of the approach, foremost being consultation time and clinic space but these do not outweigh the general benefit of this format amidst a pandemic setting.PMID:34250818 | DOI:10.1177/11206721211030774 (Source: European Journal of Ophthalmology)

Evaluation of choroidal circulation and stromal features in Graves' disease
This study aimed to evaluate choroidal thickness (CT) and choroidal vascularity index (CVI) in patients with Graves' disease (GD) without ocular involvement.METHODS: Fifty patients diagnosed with GD and 50 age and gender matched healthy control subjects were retrospectively evaluated. Measurements were taken from five different points on CT images. Choroid images were classified as lumen regions (LA) and stromal regions (SA) using the image binarization method. CVI was calculated by dividing LA by the total choroidal area (TCA). The effects of Thyrotropin Receptor Antibody (TRAb), age, GD duration, blood pressure, axial le...
