Factors Influencing Graft Endothelial Cell Density after Descemet Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty.
Authors: Javadi MA, Feizi S, Jafari R, Hosseini SB, Safapour S Abstract Purpose: To determine the factors that influence the endothelial cell density (ECD) of donor grafts after Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK). Methods: This retrospective, interventional case series comprised 77 eyes of 64 patients who underwent DSAEK. Confocal microscopy was performed at the final follow-up examination to evaluate the endothelial cell count, cell morphology, and graft thickness. Univariate and multiple linear regression analyses were used to investigate recipient-, donor-, surgical-, and postopera...

Visual Outcomes and Refractive Status after Combined Silicone Oil Removal/Cataract Surgery with Intraocular Lens Implantation.
Conclusion: A combined silicone oil removal/cataract surgery with IOL implantation procedure restored functional vision in approximately one-third of cases. However, nearly half of patients were under-corrected. Unfortunately, we did not identify any factors that predicted surgical success.

Efficacy of Intravitreal Bevacizumab for the Treatment of Zone I Type 1 Retinopathy of Prematurity.
Conclusion: Intravitreal bevacizumab injection is an effective method for the management of patients with Zone I ROP requiring treatment; however, some cases may progress to more advanced stages and require surgical management. Close monitoring for recurrence or progression is necessary. Eyes with persistent zone I ROP may progress to advanced stages when treated with intravitreal bevacizumab injection and re-treatment may be needed.

Effect of Different Illumination Sources on Reading and Visual Performance.
Conclusion: This study demonstrates the influence of illumination on reading rate; there were no significant differences between males and females under different illuminations, however, males preferred CFL and females preferred FLUO for faster reading and visual comfort. Interestingly, neither preferred LED or TUNG. Although energy-efficient, visual performance under LED is poor; it is uncomfortable for prolonged reading and causes early symptoms of fatigue.

Evolution of Cyclophotocoagulation.
Authors: Ndulue JK, Rahmatnejad K, Sanvicente C, Wizov SS, Moster MR Abstract Cyclodestructive techniques have been a treatment option for refractory glaucoma since its first use in the 1930s. Over the past nine decades, cyclodestruction has advanced from the initial cyclodiathermy to micropulse transscleral cyclophotocoagulation (MP-TSCPC) which is the current treatment available. Complications associated with cyclodestruction including pain, hyphema, vision loss, hypotony and phthisis have led ophthalmologists to shy away from these techniques when other glaucoma treatment options are available. Recent studies ha...

Management of Retinal Diseases in Pregnant Patients.
Authors: Rosenthal JM, Johnson MW Abstract Pregnancy leads to significant changes in the body, which potentially affect the retina. Pregnancy can induce disease, such as that seen in hypertensive retinopathy and choroidopathy. It can cause exudative retinal detachments in the HELLP syndrome (hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes and low platelets), disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), and provoke arterial and venous retinal occlusive disease. Pregnancy may also exacerbate pre-existing retinal disease, such as idiopathic central serous chorioretinopathy (ICSC) and ...

Upcoming Methods and Specifications of Continuous Intraocular Pressure Monitoring Systems for Glaucoma.
Authors: Molaei A, Karamzadeh V, Safi S, Esfandiari H, Dargahi J, Khosravi MA Abstract Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness and vision loss in the world. Although intraocular pressure (IOP) is no longer considered the only risk factor for glaucoma, it is still the most important one. In most cases, high IOP is secondary to trabecular meshwork dysfunction. High IOP leads to compaction of the lamina cribrosa and subsequent damage to retinal ganglion cell axons. Damage to the optic nerve head is evident on funduscopy as posterior bowing of the lamina cribrosa and increased cupping. Currently, the on...

Preparation and Thickness Profile of Endothelial Keratoplasty Lenticules from Donated Whole Eyes with Previous Photorefractive Keratectomy.
CONCLUSION: PRK donor whole eyes are potential sources for preparation of microkeratome-assisted thin endothelial keratoplasty lenticules with a high endothelial cell count. Although an asymmetric and significant increase in thickness was present at the peripheral cornea, neither attachment nor clarity of transplanted lenticules was affected by variations in thickness of precut corneas.

Review of Static Approaches to Surgical Correction of Presbyopia.
Authors: Zare Mehrjerdi MA, Mohebbi M, Zandian M Abstract Presbyopia is the primary cause of reduction in the quality of life of people in their 40s, due to dependence on spectacles. Therefore, presbyopia correction has become an evolving and rapidly progressive field in refractive surgery. There are two primary options for presbyopia correction: the dynamic approach uses the residual accommodative capacity of the eye, and the static approach attempts to enhance the depth of focus of the optical system. The dynamic approach attempts to reverse suspected pathophysiologic changes. Dynamic approaches such as accommoda...

The Role of Mitochondria in AMD: Current Knowledge and Future Applications.
Authors: Riazi-Esfahani M, Kuppermann BD, Kenney MC Abstract Mitochondria are organelles which comprise the main respiratory machinery in the eukaryotic cells. In addition to their crucial role in energy production, they have profound effects on apoptosis and retrograde signaling to nucleus. Mitochondria have their own DNA, which codes for different proteins mostly involved in oxidative phosphorylation. Significant changes in the mitochondria of retinal pigment epithelium have been reported in age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which is correlated with the severity of the disease.
