West Indies Glaucoma Laser Study (WIGLS) 3. Anterior Chamber Inflammation Following Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty in Afro-Caribbeans with Open-Angle Glaucoma.

J Glaucoma 2019 Mar 26. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

Department of Epidemiology, Epidemiology Data Center, Graduate School of Public Health, University of Pittsburgh, PA.

Evaluation of the etiology of persistent iritis after cataract surgery.

J Ophthalmic Inflamm Infect 2019 Feb 18;9(1). Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Storm Eye Institute, Medical University of South Carolina, 167 Ashley Avenue, Charleston, SC, 29425, USA.

Fracture Prevention with Zoledronate in Older Women with Osteopenia.

N Engl J Med 2018 12 1;379(25):2407-2416. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

From the Department of Medicine, Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, University of Auckland (I.R.R., A.M.H., B.M., A.S., E.G., S.W., K.R.W., M.J.B., G.D.G.), and the Auckland District Health Board (I.R.R., S.B.) - both in Auckland, New Zealand.

Background: Bisphosphonates prevent fractures in patients with osteoporosis, but their efficacy in women with osteopenia is unknown. Most fractures in postmenopausal women occur in those with osteopenia, so therapies that are effective in women with osteopenia are needed.

Methods: We conducted a 6-year, double-blind trial involving 2000 women with osteopenia (defined by a T score of -1. Read More

The Effect of Latanaprost on Intraocular Inflammation and Macular Edema.

Ocul Immunol Inflamm 2017 Oct 13:1-8. Epub 2017 Oct 13.

a Glaucoma Service , Wills Eye Institute , Philadelphia , Pennsylvania , USA.

There is debate concerning whether the use of Latanoprost in early postoperative period of cataract surgery and in glaucoma patients with uveitis as it may aggravate the inflammation and results in macular edema (ME), because of blood-ocular barrier disruption. However, there is no solid evidence for disruption of blood-ocular barrier with Latanoprost and aggravation of uveitis or ME formation. Similar to pseudophakic ME, the imaging ME in cases claimed to be secondary to Latanoprost is greater than clinical ME, happens mostly in complicated surgeries, and the vast majority resolve within weeks to months with using a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.

Uveitis: a sight-threatening disease which can impact all systems.

Postgrad Med J 2017 Dec 23;93(1106):766-773. Epub 2017 Sep 23.

Department of Ophthalmology, University Hospital Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, Birmingham, UK.

Uveitis describes a group of conditions characterised by intraocular inflammation. The term uveitis technically describes inflammation of the uvea which comprises the iris, ciliary body and choroid, however now encompasses inflammation of adjacent intraocular structures such as the retina, vitreous and optic nerve. Uveitis is a significant cause of blindness worldwide, but its impact is generally underappreciated due to a lack of awareness and understanding of the condition among the public and most non-ophthalmic healthcare professionals.

The application of optical coherence tomography angiography in uveitis and inflammatory eye diseases.

Prog Retin Eye Res 2017 07 29;59:178-201. Epub 2017 Apr 29.

Cole Eye Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Since its introduction in the early 1990s, optical coherence tomography (OCT) has evolved in resolution and technological advances, and in recent years its initial application of assessing the morphology of a tissue has been implemented by the study of its functional blood flow, through optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). This novel technique details capillary networks by comparing the amount of light returned from static and moving targets without the need for intravenous dye administration. While this imaging modality has been used for various ocular conditions, the application OCTA to uveitis conditions remains sparse. Read More

Acute anterior uveitis is generally recognized as the most common form of uveitis. An association with HLA-B27 is seen in approximately half of cases of acute anterior uveitis. The prevalence of HLA-B27 varies widely between ethnic populations, with an approximate 8-10% prevalence in non-Hispanic whites and lower prevalence in Mexican- (4%) and African- (2-4%) Americans.

Ocular Filariasis in US Residents, Returning Travelers, and Expatriates.

Authors:
James H Diaz

J La State Med Soc 2015 Jul-Aug;167(4):172-6. Epub 2015 Aug 15.

Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans.

Several factors acting in concert now place US residents, returning travelers, and expatriates at risks of contracting ocular filariasis including increasing seroprevalence rates of zoonotic filariasis, international travel bringing tourists to and expatriates from filariasis-endemic regions, and warming temperatures extending distribution ranges of arthropod vectors. To describe the epidemiology and outcomes of ocular filariasis and to recommend strategies for the diagnosis, management, and prevention of ocular filariasis, internet search engines were queried with the key words in order to examine case reports and series of ocular filariasis in the US and elsewhere. Descriptive epidemiological, morphological, and molecular evidence now support increasing cases of ocular filariasis in domestic and wild animals and humans, with most cases caused by filarial worms including Dirofilaria repens and other zoonotic Dirofilaria species and Onchocerca lupi and other zoonotic Onchocerca species.

Anterior uveitis encompasses inflammation of the iris and/or ciliary body and is one of the most common types of ocular inflammation that primary eye care practitioners will encounter. Anterior uveitis may be caused by a variety of etiologies, including infectious, non-infectious, and masquerade diseases. The short-term and long-term treatment of uveitis should include the evaluation of location, duration, pathology, and laterality, in addition to presenting signs and symptoms of the disease.

*OD, DO, MS, FAAO †BA Department of Ophthalmology, Mayo Clinic Health System, Albert Lea, Minnesota (LS, Jr.); and Pacific University College of Optometry, Forest Grove, Oregon (LG).

Purpose: To present a case of neovascular age-related macular degeneration treated with aflibercept intravitreal injections after bilateral bevacizumab injections, administered on separate dates, resulted in bilateral iritis.

Case Report: A 73-year-old woman with a previous history of two episodes of nongranulomatous iritis in her right eye that was believed to be associated with her systemic diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis was treated with intravitreal bevacizumab injections for bilaterally occurring neovascular age-related macular degeneration. Initial bevacizumab injections in each eye administered sequentially over a week's time resulted in immediate-onset nongranulomatous iritis in each eye. Read More
