[Ophthalmological Screening in Children and Adults with Intellectual Disability].
DISCUSSION: People with intellectual disabilities do not necessarily and directly complain about new vision problems or general problems with the eyes. In addition, there may be limited access to ophthalmological care compared to people without mental disabilities. Due to the four percent of diagnoses requiring treatment and 53% of participants who do not have current refraction compensation, ophthalmological monitoring of the Special Olympics eye program "Opening Eyes - Better Vision" seems to be an efficient mean for improving healthcare in this vulnerable group.

[Teleophthalmology Using Whole Slide Imaging (WSI): Clinical-Pathological Correlation Even Without Own Histological Laboratory].
Authors: Auw-Hädrich C, Jedynak A, Reinhard T, Döring C, Lang SJ Abstract Telepathology has experienced enormous growth over the last two decades due to significant advances in IT and has led to the introduction of innovative solutions for digital imaging in ophthalmology. Whole Slide Imaging (WSI), where conventional glass slides are fully scanned, offers a wide range of applications, including remote (conciliary) diagnostics, second opinions, (remote) teaching and research and presentation. In addition to qualified and experienced personnel, a comparatively expensive basic equipment has so far also been...

CONCLUSIONS: For the visual functions tested here, MIOLs are a viable option for patients with maculoretinal pathologies or previous retinal surgery to support their wish for independence from glasses. Although their visual performance is limited, they can still benefit from MIOLs with improved reading performance without near addition.

CONCLUSION: To operate quality management over many years, i.e. in our case to collect data of surgical quality parameters, to maintain the QM manual and to process patient feedbacks, means considerable effort. However, only the analysis of these parameters provides an insight into the current state of our clinic, from which conclusions can be drawn as to where processes or treatments can be optimised, which in turn can increase employee and patient satisfaction. Overall, transparency is increased and creates confidence for future treatments at the Eye Centre at the Freiburg University Hospital. PMID: 32434231 [PubMed ...

And, like in general pathology, there is continuous progress due to new technologies and the improvement of molecular biology techniques. Ophthalmic pathology cannot be disregarded, particularly in the context of basic research but also as a medium for understanding pathophysiologic interrelationships and evaluating innovative surgical techniques. By means of various examples, the "four columns" of ophthalmic pathology shall be illustrated: diagnostics, clinicopathologic correlation, evaluation of new s...

CONCLUSION: Relapses can be effectively prevented, if this is medically indicated. Among other considerations are central location of the lesion, insufficient immune competence and frequent relapses.

Authors: Rath T, Scheel M, Kriegel M, Heiligenhaus A Abstract Syphilis is a bacterial infectious disease transmitted by the spirochaete Treponema pallidum. The rate of infection has increased during the last decade. Ocular syphilis is an underestimated presentation of the disease, and it is increased in HIV-positive patients. Even though every part of the eye may be affected, syphilis most commonly occurs with posterior or panuveitis. A distinctive pattern is acute syphilitic placoid chorioretinitis, with typical features in multimodal imaging. If syphilis is suspected, specific and nonspecific Treponema pallidum s...

The correct diagnosis is often difficult to establish, despite a detailed ophthalmological and general medical history using all imaging modalities and interdisciplinary cooperation. In the case of recurrent inflammation, it is very important to consider an UMS, since any delay in proving the underlying diagnosis and initiating the appropriate therapy may be associated w...

The pathogenesis is caused by pro-inflammatory cytokines that lead to the breakdown of the blood-retina barrier. For the diagnosis of inflammatory macular oedema, optical coherence tomography is now mainly used, but cannot always replace fluorescein angiography. The therapy is mainly performed with intravitreally applied corticosteroids as well as systemic immunomodulators and should start as early as possible to prevent chronification of macular oedema.

Authors: Knop E, Knop N Abstract Dry eye is considered the most common disease in ophthalmology. In recent decades, there has been intensive clinical and experimental research on this condition and our scientific knowledge of its pathophysiology has greatly expanded. The disease may be simple or severe and may lead to complex deregulation of the functional anatomy of the ocular surface, typically with a disparity between the clinical findings and the patient's symptoms. Chronic tissue injury induces various vicious circles that together lead to progressive worsening of the clinical picture. This can trigger inflamm...

Osmokinetics: Defining the Characteristics of Osmotic Challenge to the Ocular Surface.
Authors: van Setten GB Abstract The association of severe dry eye disease with elevated osmolarity in the tear film is a subject of ongoing discussions. As the absolute value of osmolarity in tear film is highly variable, the daily variation in osmolarity (DVO) has recently been proposed to further identify the osmotic stress at the ocular surface. However, the DVO alone does not explain the variations in the available published data or allow their use in diagnostic testing or therapy. We therefore investigated and evaluated further details of osmokinetics and their importance for ocular surface disease on the basi...

[If Artificial Tears Aren't Enough. The Importance of Inflammatory Processes in Dry Eye Disease. Practical Aspects of an Anti-Inflammatory Therapy of Dry Eye Disease].
Authors: Pleyer U, Geerling G, Schrader S, Jacobi C, Kimmich F, Messmer E Abstract Dry eye disease (DED) is a heterogenous disease of the ocular surface. Multiple pathogenetic factors are responsible for the disease process, but DED is generally linked to an increase in the osmolarity of the tear film and to inflammation of the ocular surface. The significance of inflammatory processes in DED is highlighted in the most recent definition of dry eye in the Dry Eye Workshop (DEWS). It is therefore critically important for the management of dry eye disease to understand the pathomechanisms and therapeutic options for t...

Keratoconus and Ectatic Disease: Evolving Criteria for Diagnosis.
Authors: Belin MW Abstract The approach to corneal ectatic disease has changed dramatically over the last decade with advances in both diagnosis and treatment. Newer treatments, such as corneal cross-linking, have the potential to slow or stop the progression of the disease, but benefit from earlier identification of the disease than had previously been possible or required. The continued use of older diagnostic criteria and ambiguous terminology can lead to erroneous study conclusions that may not be applicable to patients with true pathology.

CONCLUSION: Within a short period, a growing body of articles has started to elucidate the ophthalmological implications of COVID-19. As the eye can represent a route of infection (actively via tears and passively via the nasoacrimal duct), ophthalmological care has to undergo substantial modifications during this pandemic. In the eye, COVID-19 can manifest as keratoconjunctivitis. PMID: 32375197 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Klinische Monatsblatter fur Augenheilkunde)

CONCLUSION: It is feasible to record eye movements in children aged 10 - 11, albeit this is more difficult when glasses are worn. As parameters change with age, further data is needed for a representative evaluation regarding eye movements during reading in children of different age groups.
