Characterization of virulence factors, antimicrobial resistance patterns and biofilm formation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus spp. strains isolated from corneal infection.
CONCLUSION: Our results indicated that P. aeruginosa and Staphylococcus spp. were the most prevalent bacterial agents that cause corneal infections. However, their virulence traits and biofilm formation ability were noteworthy. PMID: 30292385 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Journal Francais d Ophtalmologie)

CONCLUSION: Although this surgery creates additional corneal astigmatism, it has not been proven that it differs depending on the type of fixation of the iris-claw. If we adhere to the notion that the posterior fixated iris-claw decreases the risk of endothelial decompensation in case the implant becomes disenclavated, then reverse iris fixation of the iris-claw makes sense.

We describe two clinical cases of spontaneous choroidal hemorrhage in patients treated with direct oral anticoagulants (rivaroxaban and dabigatran etexilate) for atrial fibrillation. These cases show that an ocular hemorrhagic risk exists with these drugs. Patients treated with DOAC should have the therapeutic dose adjusted based on creatinine clearance. Special monitoring should be performed in patients with age-related macular degeneration or with hypertension even though meta-analysis shows that the risk of intraocular bleeding is reduced by 22% compared with warfarin.

METHODS: This was a retrospective, interventional, case-control study.

Late and sustained intraocular pressure elevation related to intravitreal anti-VEGF injections: Cases requiring filtering surgery.
We report cases of delayed, sustained elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) associated with repeated intravitreal anti-VEGF injections (IVI), which ultimately resulted in the need for filtering surgery. Two of the three cases demonstrated severe IOP elevation despite maximal medical treatment following unilateral IVI and required urgent filtering surgery. Optic nerve involvement was severe in all three cases. These intravitreal injections were performed for exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and the patients did not show any sign of glaucoma or ocular hypertension prior to the initiation of treatment. Elevated...

Mostly found in tropical regions, arboviruses are sometimes the source of epidemics in Europe.

In recent years, a new procedure has appeared under the name SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction). This technique, carried out solely with a femtosecond laser, should make it possible to better preserve corneal innervation and biomechanics. After a detailed review of the technique itself, we then focus on the scientific evidence for the safety and efficacy of SMILE and its current indications. Advantages of SMILE will be discussed in comparison to disadvantages of the conventional techniques, parti...
