Slowing Down Myopia Progression with Contact Lenses - Everyday Cases from the Clinic
CONCLUSION: Patients showed a slower myopia progression under MFCLs or OK, which supports their role as a treatment option in myopia management. In this regard, AL measurement is an important additional parameter to be included in the assessment of myopia progression in clinical practice. Identification of children at risk of developing high/pathologic myopia (family history, environmental risk factors) needs to improve so that the first stages of myopic shift can be recognized and targeted. Changes in lifestyle should be actively encouraged, especially when the impact of decreases in outdoor time secondary to COVID-19 is ...

Comparing Botulinum Toxin Injections with Extraocular Muscle Surgery in Toddlers with Esotropia: A Retrospective Analysis
CONCLUSIONS: Our results show that BTIs are a viable treatment alternative in early esotropia. Even if EOMS is ultimately required, some binocularity may develop as the visual axes are aligned for some time in the sensitive phase owing to the effects of Botox. Moreover, less surgical dosage is needed than would have otherwise been necessary to treat the original angle of deviation. BTIs are faster, less invasive, and present as an effective alternative when patient compliance is too low to reliably measure the angle of deviation, which is essential for the planning of EOMS.PMID:33930922 | DOI:10.1055/a-1386-5537 (Source: K...

Nishida Extraocular Muscle Transposition Surgery for Abducens Nerve Palsy
CONCLUSIONS: Transposition of vertical rectus muscles is well established in the surgical treatment of abducens nerve palsy. Nishida's adaptation is a safe, effective and minimally-invasive treatment option. This vessel-sparing technique also allows for equilateral weakening of the medial rectus muscle.PMID:33930924 | DOI:10.1055/a-1403-2943 (Source: Klinische Monatsblatter fur Augenheilkunde)

Inferior Rectus Myopexy: Indications and Long-Term Results
CONCLUSION: The inferior rectus myopexy shows an effective way to reduce the incomitance of vertical deviation without significant influence on torsion. Over the years, there has been a decrease in the effect, particularly in patients with superior oblique paresis. We do not consider inferior rectus myopexy as a classic surgical treatment of superior oblique paresis. We have only used it in special cases.PMID:33930925 | DOI:10.1055/a-1384-1508 (Source: Klinische Monatsblatter fur Augenheilkunde)

Acute Acquired Comitant Esotropia Type 2 - A Retrospective Analysis
CONCLUSION: Our analysis showed that our patients with diagnosis of AACE Type 2 had mild hyperopia and large comitant non-accommodative esotropia; prognosis for recovery of stereopsis is excellent. Preoperative amblyopia does not exclude the diagnosis of AACE Type 2. Therapeutic intervention is advisable within a short period of time after first symptoms and the diagnosis of AACE Type 2.PMID:33930926 | DOI:10.1055/a-1384-1395 (Source: Klinische Monatsblatter fur Augenheilkunde)

Prospective Cohort Study of In-Hospital Patients Undergoing Ophthalmic Surgery for the Validation of ClassIntra: Classification of Intraoperative Adverse Events
CONCLUSIONS: The application of ClassIntra during daily routine in ophthalmic surgery showed the usefulness and practicability of this classification for the standardised assessment of intraoperative adverse events. Although construct validity could not be demonstrated, the good reliability in the survey's rating underlines the criterion validity of this newly developed classification in ophthalmic surgery.PMID:33930927 | DOI:10.1055/a-1440-1034 (Source: Klinische Monatsblatter fur Augenheilkunde)

The Spectrum of Maculopathy in Mitochondrial DNA A3243G Mutation: A Case Series of Six Patients
CONCLUSIONS: A single mtDNA point mutation at locus 3243 can result in a variety of clinical presentations (MELAS, MIDD, or CPEO). Ocular involvement may manifest as a perimacular/peripapillary RPE atrophy/deposit, which can variably impact central visual function (from asymptomatic to legal blindness). The discovery of such a maculopathy should prompt the ophthalmologist to complete the personal and family history, namely, asking for the presence of diabetes mellitus and/or deafness.PMID:33930928 | DOI:10.1055/a-1386-5826 (Source: Klinische Monatsblatter fur Augenheilkunde)

Prism-Induced Gaze Shift and Strabismus Treatment for Ocular Motility Disorders and Anomalous Head Posture
CONCLUSIONS: Prisms are used to correct strabismic deviations but also can successfully shift images towards another gaze in different clinical scenarios.

Clinical Classification of Acquired Concomitant Esotropia
Klin Monbl Augenheilkd. 2021 Apr;238(4):482-487. doi: 10.1055/a-1425-5017. Epub 2021 Apr 30.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Classification and management of acquired concomitant esotropia is controversial. We sought to establish a simple clinical classification in order to determine in which cases further investigations in search of underlying pathologies are necessary.PATIENTS AND METHODS: Observational retrospective study of the files of 175 consecutive patients examined in our unit between 2009 and 2018 for acute convergent strabismus. One hundred and nine patients were selected, after exclusion of infantile, incomitant, or mechani...

Nishida Extraocular Muscle Transposition Surgery for Abducens Nerve Palsy
CONCLUSIONS: Transposition of vertical rectus muscles is well established in the surgical treatment of abducens nerve palsy. Nishida's adaptation is a safe, effective and minimally-invasive treatment option. This vessel-sparing technique also allows for equilateral weakening of the medial rectus muscle.PMID:33930924 | DOI:10.1055/a-1403-2943 (Source: Klinische Monatsblatter fur Augenheilkunde)

Inferior Rectus Myopexy: Indications and Long-Term Results
CONCLUSION: The inferior rectus myopexy shows an effective way to reduce the incomitance of vertical deviation without significant influence on torsion. Over the years, there has been a decrease in the effect, particularly in patients with superior oblique paresis. We do not consider inferior rectus myopexy as a classic surgical treatment of superior oblique paresis. We have only used it in special cases.PMID:33930925 | DOI:10.1055/a-1384-1508 (Source: Klinische Monatsblatter fur Augenheilkunde)

Acute Acquired Comitant Esotropia Type 2 - A Retrospective Analysis
CONCLUSION: Our analysis showed that our patients with diagnosis of AACE Type 2 had mild hyperopia and large comitant non-accommodative esotropia; prognosis for recovery of stereopsis is excellent. Preoperative amblyopia does not exclude the diagnosis of AACE Type 2. Therapeutic intervention is advisable within a short period of time after first symptoms and the diagnosis of AACE Type 2.PMID:33930926 | DOI:10.1055/a-1384-1395 (Source: Klinische Monatsblatter fur Augenheilkunde)

Prospective Cohort Study of In-Hospital Patients Undergoing Ophthalmic Surgery for the Validation of ClassIntra: Classification of Intraoperative Adverse Events
CONCLUSIONS: The application of ClassIntra during daily routine in ophthalmic surgery showed the usefulness and practicability of this classification for the standardised assessment of intraoperative adverse events. Although construct validity could not be demonstrated, the good reliability in the survey's rating underlines the criterion validity of this newly developed classification in ophthalmic surgery.PMID:33930927 | DOI:10.1055/a-1440-1034 (Source: Klinische Monatsblatter fur Augenheilkunde)
