Sealing of Corneal Lacerations Using Photoactivated Rose Bengal Dye and Amniotic Membrane.

Cornea 2018 Feb;37(2):211-217

San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium, San Antonio, TX.

Purpose: Watertight closure of perforating corneoscleral lacerations is necessary to prevent epithelial ingrowth, infection, and potential loss of the eye. Complex lacerations can be difficult to treat, and repair with sutures alone is often inadequate. In this study, we evaluated a potentially sutureless technology for sealing complex corneal and scleral lacerations that bonds the amniotic membrane (AM) to the wound using only green light and rose bengal dye.

Forceps trauma in a newborn presenting as iris heterochromia.

J AAPOS 2017 Oct 1;21(5):425-426. Epub 2017 Sep 1.

Department of Ophthalmology, Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Electronic address:

Birth-associated ocular trauma is common and often minor, including subconjunctival and retinal haemorrhage and eyelid edema. Significant ocular trauma during birth, usually associated with forceps-assisted delivery, is rarer and can include Descemet's membrane rupture, lid lacerations, hyphema, Purtcher retinopathy, facial nerve palsy, corneal edema, and corneal laceration. We report the first case of ocular birth trauma from forceps presenting as isolated iris heterochromia and a pseudo rubeosis iridis, which completely resolved by 1 month of age with no known adverse ocular sequelae.

Cannula-associated Ocular Injuries during Cataract Surgery: A Preventable Intraoperative Complication?

Middle East Afr J Ophthalmol 2017 Jan-Mar;24(1):54-56

Department of Ophthalmology, The James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough TS4 3BW, UK.

Although rare, inadvertently dislodged cannula can occur during cataract surgery. We report two cases of cannula-associated ocular injury during stromal hydration of the main corneal incision despite the use of Luer-lock syringes. Case 1 suffered from an initially occult intraocular injury which led to a delayed presentation of vitreous prolapsing into the anterior chamber, presumed posterior capsular rupture, vitreous hemorrhage, and multiple retinal tears, which required a three-port pars plana vitrectomy and cryotherapy.
