Ocular Manifestations, Visual Field Pattern, and Visual Field Test Performance in Traumatic Brain Injury and Stroke
CONCLUSION: Various ocular manifestations were found, and a considerable proportion of patients were experiencing VF defects and showed unreliable VF test performance. Our findings suggest that accurate evaluation and rehabilitation of visual function should be a matter of greater concern and emphasis in the management of TBI and stroke patients, besides systemic diseases.PMID:35036002 | PMC:PMC8759901 | DOI:10.1155/2022/1703806 (Source: Journal of Ophthalmology)

Comparison of Patient Outcomes following Implantation of Trifocal and Extended Depth of Focus Intraocular Lenses: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
CONCLUSION: EDOF IOLs and TIOLs provide comparable distance vision. However, EDOF IOLs provide better intermediate vision and worse near vision than TIOLs. The advantages of EDOF IOLs over TIOLs in terms of CS, aberrations, and visual disturbance are not significant. Patients are satisfied with both types of IOLs.PMID:35003788 | PMC:PMC8731298 | DOI:10.1155/2021/1115076 (Source: Journal of Ophthalmology)

Visual Outcome after Vitrectomy with Subretinal tPA Injection to Treat Submacular Hemorrhage Secondary to Age-Related Macular Degeneration or Macroaneurysm
CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that a surgical approach with 23G vitrectomy, subretinal tPA injection, and pneumatic displacement using air may be an effective procedure for submacular hemorrhage displacement in patients with AMD and retinal macroaneurysms. However, visual outcome is limited by the underlying macular pathology. Larger multicenter randomized controlled studies are warranted to determine the therapeutic effect of this surgical approach.PMID:35003789 | PMC:PMC8736698 | DOI:10.1155/2021/3160963 (Source: Journal of Ophthalmology)

Analysis of Lens Thickness Distribution Based on Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography (SS-OCT)
This study aimed to analyze the distribution of lens thickness (LT) and its associations in age-related cataract patients based on swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT).METHODS: This cross-sectional study included 59,726 Chinese age-related cataract patients. Only right-eye data were included in the study. Repeated measures of ocular parameters were performed using an IOL Master 700 device. The distributions of ocular biometric data including anterior chamber depth (ACD), LT, axial length (AL), central corneal thickness (CCT), white-to-white (WTW), and mean keratometry (MK) and their associations with age were...

Factors Associated with Changes in Peripapillary Retinal Nerve Fibre Layer Thickness in Healthy Myopic Eyes
J Ophthalmol. 2021 Dec 27;2021:3462004. doi: 10.1155/2021/3462004. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTMyopic people face an elevated risk of primary open angle glaucoma. Changes in the fundus in people with high myopia often lead to misdiagnosis of glaucoma, as this condition has many clinical signs in common with myopia, making the diagnosis of glaucoma more challenging. Compared to reduction of the visual field, a decrease in retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness occurs earlier in glaucoma, which is widely considered useful for distinguishing between these conditions. With the development of optical coherence tomography (OCT)...

J Ophthalmol. 2021 Dec 21;2021:5575851. doi: 10.1155/2021/5575851. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTPURPOSE: To determine the vessel density of the superior (SCP) and deep retinal capillary plexuses (DCP) in patients with retinitis pigmentosa (RP) using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA).METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study. A total of 25 eyes of 25 healthy volunteers and 30 eyes of 17 patients with RP were evaluated in this study. The integrity of the ellipsoid zone in the macular fovea was evaluated as an intact or defect using a spectral-domain OCT. Commercial spectral domain coherence tomography angiography (...

Effect of Implantable Collamer Lens on Anterior Segment Measurement and Intraocular Lens Power Calculation Based on IOLMaster 700 and Sirius
J Ophthalmol. 2021 Dec 21;2021:8988479. doi: 10.1155/2021/8988479. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTPURPOSE: To investigate the possible effect of an implantable collamer lens (ICL) on ocular biometrics and intraocular lens (IOL) power calculation.METHODS: Ocular measurements were taken preoperatively and at the two-month follow-up using IOLMaster 700 and Sirius in 85 eyes (43 patients) who had previously undergone ICL surgery. IOL power was calculated using either IOLMaster 700 (Barrett Universal II formula) or Sirius (ray-tracing). All data were compared using the paired t-test.RESULTS: The difference between preoperative and po...

Scleral Fixation of Akreos AO60 Intraocular Lens Using Gore-Tex Suture: An Eye on Visual Outcomes and Postoperative Complications
J Ophthalmol. 2021 Dec 20;2021:9349323. doi: 10.1155/2021/9349323. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTPURPOSE: "In-the-bag" placement of an IOL is the Holy Grail for any cataract surgeon. However, in the absence of capsular integrity, alternative surgical options to place the IOL must be sought. We aim to report the clinical outcomes and safety profile of scleral-fixated Akreos AO60 intraocular lens implantation using Gore-Tex suture, combined with pars plana vitrectomy.METHODS: This is a single-center, retrospective case series descriptive study. Electronic clinical records of all patients subjected to scleral fixation of...

Toric Intraocular Lenses for the Management of Corneal Astigmatism at the Time of Cataract Surgery
CONCLUSIONS: Significant reductions in astigmatism can be achieved with the use of toric IOLs in patients undergoing cataract surgery. Further improvements may be possible with surgeon-specific determination of their surgically induced astigmatism and flattening effect from the main corneal incision. Furthermore, the use of an optical biometer that directly measures the posterior corneal curvature and permits automatic toric IOL power determination with modern formulas avoiding the need for manual data entry may reduce the risk of human error and improve visual and refractive outcomes.PMID:34961830 | PMC:PMC8710165 | DOI:1...

Clinical Characteristics of Pregnancy-Associated Central Serous Chorioretinopathy in the Chinese Population
CONCLUSIONS: Pregnancy-associated CSC in Chinese developed mostly in the third trimester and usually recovered spontaneously around delivery with good final visual acuity. However, patients might require long-term follow-up until complete resolution of subretinal fluid and to detect recurrences. Half-dose PDT can be administered early if there is little reduction in the amount of subretinal fluid after delivery.PMID:34956667 | PMC:PMC8702364 | DOI:10.1155/2021/5580075 (Source: Journal of Ophthalmology)

Significance of Hyperreflective Foci as an Optical Coherence Tomography Biomarker in Retinal Diseases: Characterization and Clinical Implications
J Ophthalmol. 2021 Dec 17;2021:6096017. doi: 10.1155/2021/6096017. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTHyperreflective foci (HRF) is a term coined to depict hyperreflective dots or roundish lesions within retinal layers visualized through optical coherence tomography (OCT). Histopathological correlates of HRF are not univocal, spacing from migrating retinal pigment epithelium cells, lipid-laden macrophages, microglial cells, and extravasated proteinaceous or lipid material. Despite this, HRF can be considered OCT biomarkers for disease progression, treatment response, and prognosis in several retinal diseases, including diabetic macu...
