Chiari I malformation presenting as downbeat nystagmus: clinical presentation, diagnosis, and management.

Optometry 2012 Feb 15;83(2):80-6. Epub 2012 Feb 15.

Pacific University College of Optometry, 2043 College Way, Forest Grove, OR 97116, USA.

Introduction: Chiari I malformation is a congenital, neurological condition that is characterized by defects of the skull base resulting in herniation of the cerebellum through the foramen magnum into the cervical spinal canal. Because the condition can result in visual symptoms, patients will often search for answers from their eye care providers;

Case Report: A 28-year-old Hispanic diabetic male with a 10-year history of nystagmus was referred to the neuro-ophthalmic disease clinic following the initiation of oscillopsia 1 year previous. Downbeat nystagmus, which worsened in right and down gaze, was evident. Read More

Central toxic keratopathy: a case study and literature review.

Authors:
Linda A Morgan

Optometry 2012 Feb 15;83(2):74-9. Epub 2012 Feb 15.

Omaha Eye and Laser Institute, 606 N. 164th Street, Omaha, NE 68118, USA.

Background: Central toxic keratopathy (CTK) is a rare, non-inflammatory corneal opacity that can occur after corneal laser refractive surgery. It is characterized by the absence of inflammatory cells within the cornea or anterior chamber, central stromal necrosis, and corneal opacification, with an onset of 3 to 9 days after refractive surgery;

Case Study: This case report reviews the clinical findings, differential diagnosis, possible etiologies, and management of CTK;

Conclusion: Though listed in the literature under numerous names, including diffuse lamellar keratitis (DLK) Stage IV, central lamellar keratitis (CLK), central flap necrosis (CFN), flap necrosis syndrome (FNS), and keratocyte-induced corneal microedema (KME), the conditions share characteristics with CTK, including clinical findings and treatment modalities. Treatment for CTK is controversial, though studies show best practices include close monitoring for possible corneal melt, avoiding topical corticosteroids, and possible enhancements for resultant hyperopia.

Introduction to genetic epidemiology.

Optometry 2011 Feb 13;82(2):83-91. Epub 2010 Oct 13.

Department of Geriatric Medicine, Queen's University of Belfast, Belfast, United Kingdom.

Genetic epidemiology is of topical and increasingly practical relevance. The subject attempts to answer 2 questions: (1) is there a genetic component to a disease, and (2) what genes are involved? This article summarizes genetic epidemiologic methods, describing family- and population-based methods used to locate and identify genes and the advantages and disadvantages of each approach. Health care professionals are faced with more and more genetic information, both from interested patients and from the media, and understanding the principles underlying genetic studies allows such information to be placed in context.

Another joint statement regarding learning disabilities, dyslexia, and vision--a rebuttal.

Authors:
Daniel Lack

Optometry 2010 Oct 21;81(10):533-43. Epub 2010 Aug 21.

Several medical organizations have published yet another joint statement trivializing vision therapy and vision disorders in the learning-disabled population. A review of the references in the joint statement as well as other references find that the joint statement is misleading because of inappropriate citations and selected references, as was the case with previous joint statements. The most current joint statement ignores the results of evidence-based research and makes recommendations regarding the treatment of convergence insufficiency that have no scientific validity.

State University of New York State College of Optometry, SUNY Brain Injury Clinical Research Group, 33 W. 42nd Street, New York, NY 10036, USA.

Accommodation refers to the process of obtaining and maintaining a focused foveal retinal image of an object of interest. It involves optical, sensory, motor, perceptual, cognitive, pharmacologic, and biomechanical aspects, and hence represents a complex, multilevel neurologic control process. In patients with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), this process frequently is disrupted and compromised neurologically because of the pervasiveness of the coup-contrecoup, swelling, and shearing aspects of the brain injury.
