Authors:
Taskin Khan

Indian J Public Health 2018 Jul-Sep;62(3):239-241

Assistant Professor, Department of Ophthalmology, Hamdard Institute of Medical Sciences and Research, Hamdard University, New Delhi, India.

In humans, Pthirus pubis or crab louse usually infests hair of pubic region. Phthiriasis palpebrarum (infestation of the eyelashes and eyelids) is not as rare as is reported in literature, especially in low socioeconomic communities. It is possible that the disease is being perhaps missed due to its clinical similarity with anterior blepharitis. Read More

Semifluorinated Alkane Eye Drops for Treatment of Dry Eye Disease Due to Meibomian Gland Disease.

J Ocul Pharmacol Ther 2017 11 18;33(9):678-685. Epub 2017 Sep 18.

12 Department of Ophthalmology, Ludwig Maximilian University , Munich, Germany .

Purpose: Meibomian gland disease is generally accepted as the leading cause for evaporative dry eye disease (DED). In a previous study, perfluorohexyloctane, a semifluorinated alkane, has been demonstrated to significantly increase tear film breakup time and to reduce corneal fluorescein staining in patients with evaporative DED, thereby vastly reducing dry eye-related symptoms. This study was set up to evaluate perfluorohexyloctane in a larger population of patients with Meibomian gland dysfunction. Read More

HIV-infected individuals on long-term antiretroviral therapy are at higher risk for ocular disease.

Epidemiol Infect 2017 09 19;145(12):2520-2529. Epub 2017 May 19.

Anova Health Institute,Johannesburg,South Africa.

Introduction of antiretroviral therapy (ART) has dramatically reduced the incidence of infectious ocular diseases in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected individuals. However, the effects of long-term ART and chronic HIV infection on the eye are ill-defined. This study determined the occurrence and severity of ocular diseases among 342 participants in a rural South African setting: HIV-naïve (n = 105), HIV-infected ART-naïve (n = 16), HIV-infected on ART for 36 months (long-term ART; n = 165).
