Fireworks: boon or bane to our eyes?

Int Ophthalmol 2019 Mar 13. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Department of Ophthalmology, National Healthcare Group Eye Institute, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Novena, Singapore.

Fireworks are an integral aspect of national, cultural and religious festivals globally, featuring in a vast range of celebrations including Diwali in India and New Year's Eve in the USA. We have seen a trend in eye injuries related to the use of fireworks, with millions of people, of which a large proportion comprising children, are injured annually-and rather than falling, as one would hope, this number is remaining stable. A comprehensive study of the impact of firework-related injuries to the eye is not available, and the efforts to mitigate this are not widely discussed in the literature. Read More

Systematic review and meta-analysis investigating autograft versus allograft cultivated limbal epithelial transplantation in limbal stem cell deficiency.

Int Ophthalmol 2019 Mar 2. Epub 2019 Mar 2.

Ocular Tissue Engineering Research Center, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, No 23, Paydarfard-9th Boostan St., Pasdaran Ave, Tehran, 1666673111, Iran.

Purpose: Currently, regenerative medicine has attracted much attention among researchers investigating new methods to treat ocular surface diseases. Based on this new concept, cultivated limbal epithelial transplantation (CLET), whether in the form of autograft or allograft, has emerged as a promising surgical procedure for treating limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD). Given that there is no updated comparison between autograft and allograft CLETs, the present review and meta-analysis aims to compare and determine the efficacy of two different CLET techniques, autologous versus allogeneic, based on a literature review of relevant studies.

Department of Ophthalmology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing Medical University, 101 Longmian Avenue, Jiangning District, Nanjing, 211166, China.

Objective: The objective of this work was to find out the effects of nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor/heme oxygenase-1 (Nrf2/HO-1) pathway on retinal ganglion cell (RGC) injury in glaucoma.

Methods: The chronic ocular hypertension (COH) rat models of glaucoma were constructed, and intraocular pressure (IOP) and RGC numbers were detected at different time points. Additionally, rats were divided into normal group (normal control rats), model group (COH model rats), and model + tBHQ group (COH model rats treated with Nrf activator, tBHQ). Read More
