[Tear film analysis and evaluation of optical quality: A review of the literature (French translation of the article)].
Authors: Herbaut A, Liang H, Denoyer A, Baudouin C, Labbé A Abstract Dry eye is a complex multifactorial disease of the ocular surface and tears. It is associated with ocular surface symptoms and is one of the most common causes for ophthalmologic consultation. Despite their frequent use in clinical practice, the usual tests to evaluate dry eye and ocular surface disease-history of symptoms, tear break-up time (TBUT), Meibomian gland evaluation, corneal fluorescein staining, Schirmer test-have shown low reproducibility and reliability. In addition, subjective symptoms are often weakly or poorly correlated wi...

CONCLUSION: Non-mydriatic fundus photography combined with telemedicine is attractive for diabetic retinopathy screening and identifies patients requiring further eye examination. In our study, it obviated the need for an ophthalmologic examination in 8 out of 10 cases. It is important to continue to educate patients about the necessity of regular eye examinations and post-screening follow-up.

[Boston keratoprosthesis type 1].
Authors: Harissi-Dagher M, Slim E Abstract Penetrating keratoplasty is the most commonly performed tissue transplant in the world. However, its success depends on the health of the ocular surface and the intact immune privilege of the eye. In the absence of these two conditions, corneal transplants have an increased failure rate and result in corneal blindness. For more than two hundred years, researchers have been trying to find the best design of the artificial cornea in order to address these cases of severe corneal blindness. Despite previous difficulties, interest in the field has recently been revived, and co...

This study explores data from an awareness and screening campaign conducted in Lebanon. Diabetic patients from multiple regions were referred by their endocrinologists to undergo NMFP using the Optomed SmartScope® handheld fundus camera. Photographs were interpreted by a remote observer, and recommendations were given accordingly. The prevalence of DR was calculated, and statistical analyses were performed on the clinical characteristics, fundus findings and number of referrals to ophthalmologists. RESULTS: The campaign lasted 11 months, during which 2205 patients were examined in 37 screening locations. Out of the...

[Presbyopia and refractive surgery].
Authors: Albou-Ganem C Abstract Presbyopia is the progressive loss of accommodation. Accommodation is a quick, precise and involuntary action which enables the eye to change the power of the young crystalline lens to see clearly at all distances. Presbyopia is and age-linked physiologic phenomenon: it results from aging of the lens, which loses its elasticity, gradually becomes rigid and loses the ability to accommodate. Presbyopia has attained a prevalence of 80% in Europe and is increasing regularly due to the aging of the population. Various surgical techniques can be proposed. Indications depend on age, ophthal...

To make the diagnosis, it is necessary to prove systemic granulomatosis involving at least two organs; but in practice, a combination of clinical, paraclinical and histologic findings is used. It affects predominantly women with a bimodal age distribution: 25-29years and 65-69years. The most commonly affected organs are the mediastinal lymphatic system, lungs, skin and eyes.

Osmokinetics: A new dynamic concept in dry eye disease.
CONCLUSION: A more dynamic model for osmolarity is presented in which not the value itself but the daily variation of osmolarity is identified. It is suggested that the amplitude of change in osmolarity over the course of a day or even shorter time periods could play a decisive role as a stress factor for the surface cells. The varying osmolar stress could be one of the key mechanisms leading to the cell death, inflammation, apoptosis, and goblet cell disappearance as observed in dry eye disease. Perhaps it is the mean osmolarity level at which these changes occur together with the magnitude of DVO which could identify the...

Panorama of limbal changes.
Authors: Gueudry J, Majo F, Delcampe A, Muraine M Abstract The corneal limbus is a privileged region on the border between two quite different microenvironments, where corneal epithelial stem cells, numerous melanocytes, and antigen-presenting cells are all concentrated within a richly vascularized and innervated stroma. This situation within the ocular surface confers on it the key functions of barrier, epithelial renewal and defense of the cornea. As an immunological crossroads and since the corneoscleral limbus is directly exposed to external insults such as caustic agents, ultraviolet radiation, microbial agent...
