Recurrent Corneal Erosions in Corneal Dystrophies: a Review of the Pathogenesis, Differential Diagnosis, and Therapy.
CONCLUSIONS: The epithelial-stromal complex plays an important role in the pathogenesis of erosions in corneal dystrophies. The clinical features of each corneal dystrophy guide their diagnosis and management. A better understanding of the pathogenesis and clinical features of erosions in corneal dystrophies can lead to better clinical outcomes.

[Recurrent Corneal Erosions in Epithelial Corneal Dystrophies].
Authors: Geerling G, Lisch W, Finis D Abstract The corneal epithelium is the most important structure of the ocular optical system. Recurrent corneal erosions can result from inflammation, trauma, degeneration and dystrophies. Epithelial basement membrane dystrophy (EBMD), epithelial recurrent erosion dystrophy (ERED) and Francheschetti and Meesmann's epithelial corneal dystrophy (MECD) can all - besides other signs and symptoms - result in more or less frequent corneal erosions. The pathomechanisms involved however are different. In EBMD, corneal erosions are facultative and clinical signs are often subtle. Aberra...

[Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography (MI-OCT) for the Treatment of Corneal Dystrophies].
CONCLUSION: Microscope-integrated, intraoperative optical coherence tomography (MI-OCT) represents a useful supplement to the normal surgical microscope. It is superior to the sole surgical microscope, especially in already severely clouded corneas, and represents a sensible supplement, especially for novel lamellar transplantation procedures. Prospective randomized trials are necessary to increase safety and efficacy when using MI-OCT for different indications.

Authors: von Livonius B Abstract The numbers of low vision patients will steadily increase because of increasing longevity. It is important to be aware of those patients so that visual rehabilitation can be started as soon as possible and needed. Before the adjustment of low vision devices a diagnosis should be confirmed in order to check any therapeutic option and to ensure the best individual rehabilitation. If there is no further therapeutic option left a detailed anamnesis of the problems due to low vision should be made to ensure that every patient gets the optical or electronic device he really needs in his e...

[Cataracts in Uveitis].
Authors: Heiligenhaus A, Walscheid K, Pleyer U Abstract Cataracts are a frequent complication of uveitis, and their management can be challenging. Operation planning requires knowledge of the cause (e.g., infectious versus noninfectious) and course of uveitis, including any intraocular comorbidities (e.g., macular edema). Preoperative patient selection is particularly important in uveitis patients to achieve good surgical results. Steroid-sparing disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) can reduce the rate of postoperative complications and can improve visual acuity. Before the operation, a stable inactivity ...

[Uveitic Secondary Glaucoma].
Authors: Lommatzsch C, Heinz C Abstract An intraocular pressure increase with development of glaucomatous damage is a common complication of uveitis. The prevalence has a wide range depending on various factors such as the underlying uveitis type and the duration of the disease. Pathogenetically, a distinction must be made between a secondary angle closure component and the more frequently occurring open-angle glaucoma. In diagnostics, in addition to the clinical optic nerve head assessment, perimetry and tonometry, the use of imaging examination equipment, such as OCT and HRT, are recommended. In the context of uv...

[Topical Corticosteroids and Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs in the Therapy of Non-infectious Uveitis].
Authors: Doycheva D, Deuter C, Grajewski R Abstract Topical corticosteroids are effective anti-inflammatory drugs in the treatment of anterior uveitis. The intraocular efficacy of topical corticosteroids mostly depends on their intraocular permeability through the cornea. Lipophile derivatives such as dexamethasone and prednisolone acetate penetrate better into the anterior chamber than hydrophilic derivatives. Prednisolone acetate 1% is the first choice in the therapy of patients with anterior uveitis. Loteprednole and fluorometholone have a slightly weaker anti-inflammatory effect, but they induce less elevation ...

In addition to their beneficial effects, corticosteroids may have various adverse events, even with long-term use. Therefore, therapy with corticosteroids necessitates adequate dosing, monitoring and prophylaxis. PMID: 29739029 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Klinische Monatsblatter fur Augenheilkunde)

It was pronounced perivascular, intracellular in macrophages and fibroblasts, but also extracellular as free pigment in the tissue, compatible with an eyelid line tattoo. Typical tissue reactions to tattoo ink, meibomian gland dysfunction after lid margin tattoo, as well as inflammatory reactions in the retina and choroid associated with tattoos distant from the eye are discusse...

Medical and Semi-surgical Treatments for Fuchs Endothelial Corneal Dystrophy.
Authors: Wacker K, Baratz KH, Fautsch MP, Patel SV Abstract Unraveling the genetic mechanisms of Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy has opened new possibilities for future targeted medical therapy of the disease. Until these possibilities mature, regenerative semi-surgical approaches by cell injection or cell sheet transfer could help expand the donor pool, and possibly enable autologous transplantation. Descemet membrane stripping alone and acellular Descemet membrane transfer are more immediate surgical approaches that could be temporary treatments in some patients, though there is a lack of understanding of the...

Evolution of Keratoconus: From Diagnosis to Therapeutics.
Authors: Imbornoni LM, McGhee CNJ, Belin MW Abstract This review describes the evolution of the diagnosis and treatment of keratoconus from the earliest written description to present day. The first description was provided in 1736 by Benedict Duddell who described the prominent corneas of a fourteen-year-old boy. Throughout the 19th century, a variety of surgical procedures were proposed to manage the disease, such as surgically repositioning the pupil away from the cone, iris incarceration to produce a slit-like pupil, cauterization of the cone to produce a scar, and full thickness elliptical excision of the cone...

The Use of Optical Coherence Tomography for the Detection of Early Diabetic Retinopathy.
Authors: Somfai GM, Gerding H, DeBuc DC Abstract Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is one of the leading causes of vision loss globally with a severe burden on all societies due to its high treatment and rehabilitation costs. The early diagnosis of DR may provide preventive steps (including retinal laser therapy and tight carbohydrate, blood pressure, and cholesterol control) that could in turn help to avoid progression of the pathology with the resultant vision loss. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) enables the in vivo structural imaging of the retina, providing both qualitative (structure) and quantitative (thickness) ...

CONCLUSION: An OCT examination, 24 hours after the first bevacizumab injection, has a prognostic value and can identify the patients that can tolerate longer intervals between injections, this results in fewer bevacizumab injections during the course of the disease. This way an individualization of the treatment, opposed to a fixed therapy pattern, can be implemented. Also, patients with poor prognosis can be identified early and treatment can be altered or intensified accordingly.
