Modified Deep Sclerectomy for the Surgical Treatment of Glaucoma.
Authors: Sharifipour F, Yazdani S, Asadi M, Saki A, Nouri-Mahdavi K Abstract Purpose: To report the short-term outcomes of modified deep sclerectomy (MDS) in the management of open angle glaucoma. Methods: This prospective, non-randomized, controlled study included 105 eyes (105 patients) with open angle glaucoma. Eyes were categorized as follows: trabeculectomy (30 eyes), MDS (27 eyes), phacotrabeculectomy (28 eyes), and phaco-MDS (20 eyes). The MDS technique involved removal of a third scleral flap to expose the suprachoroidal space and excision of a trabecular block. A two-site approach was used for combined...

Ocular Manifestations and Management of Autoimmune Bullous Diseases.
Authors: Feizi S, Roshandel D Abstract Autoimmune bullous diseases with ocular involvement consist of a group of systemic entities that are characterized by formation of autoantibodies against the proteins of the epithelial basement membrane zone of the conjunctiva. Mostly, the elderly are affected by these diseases. The characteristic patterns of mucocutaneous involvement and the specific tissue components targeted by these autoantibodies are differentiating features of these diseases. Ocular pemphigus vulgaris exhibits intraepithelial activity, whereas the autoimmune activity in linear immunoglobulin A disease, m...

Management Strategies of Ocular Abnormalities in Patients with Marfan Syndrome: Current Perspective.
Authors: Esfandiari H, Ansari S, Mohammad-Rabei H, Mets MB Abstract Marfan syndrome is an autosomal dominant genetic connective tissue disorder that results from mutations in the fibrillin-1 gene located on chromosome band 15q15-21. Fibrillin, a glycoprotein, is widely expressed throughout the body and contributes to the elasticity and force-bearing capacity of connective tissue. In the eye, fibrillin is a key constituent of the ciliary zonules, which suspend the crystalline lens in place. The zonular defect leads to ectopia lentis, which is a hallmark of Marfan ocular abnormalities and occurs in 60% to 80% of case...

Role of the Choroid in Age-related Macular Degeneration: A Current Review.
Authors: Farazdaghi MK, Ebrahimi KB Abstract Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a major cause of vision loss in the developed world and its pathogenesis is a topic of active research. To date, much study has been focused on the role of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and Bruch's membrane (BrM) in AMD pathogenesis, but the role of the choroid has also been investigated. In this review, we focus on recent advancements in research in the role of the choroid in AMD, beginning with an exploration of the histopathologic, cellular and molecular changes that occur in the choroid in AMD and concluding by discuss...
