Referral to community care from school-based eye care programs in the United States.

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Wilmer Eye Institute, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD; Dana Center for Preventive Ophthalmology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD; Berman Institute of Bioethics, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD. Electronic address:

Approximately 25% of school-aged children in the United States have vision abnormalities, most commonly refractive error that can be corrected with spectacles. Limited follow-up adherence after failed school-based vision screening led to an increase in school-based eye care programs that provide screening, eye examinations, and spectacle prescription at the school. These programs address the access barrier and often provide the first point of contact between children and eye care. Read More

Implementation of Lean and Six Sigma Principles in Ophthalmology for Improving Quality of Care and Patient Flow.

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Apr 2. Epub 2019 Apr 2.

Department of Ophthalmology, Rambam Health Care Campus, Haifa, Israel; Ruth and Bruce Rappaport Faculty of Medicine, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel. Electronic address:

Lean management is a set of principles aimed at improving processes by identifying and eliminating steps that do not add value to the consumer. Such steps lead to wasted time, resources and expenses, and result in customer and employee dissatisfaction. While initially invented and perfected for factory assembly lines in the automobile industry, it has since disseminated extensively and has repeatedly proven a powerful "engine" for improving quality and quantity in the healthcare setting.

The potential role of nutrition on lens pathology: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Mar 13. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

2(nd) Ophthalmology Department, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece.

Oxidative stress is one of the main mechanisms of lens opacification, and certain nutritional antioxidants are suspected to have a protective effect. To examine the role of these nutritional antioxidants in cataract prevention, we searched major databases and reviewed current evidence regarding the protective effect of nutritive antioxidants. We included observational studies that investigate the association between one or more of the following micronutrients and cataract: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, lutein, zeaxanthin, α- and β-carotene.

Ocular manifestations of pulmonary hypertension.

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Mar 5. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

Department and Clinic of Ophthalmology, Wroclaw Medical University, Poland, ul. Borowska 213, PL-50-556 Wrocław, Poland.

Pulmonary hypertension (PH), if left untreated, may result in increasing cardiac back pressures and lead to right heart failure and death. An increase in venous pressure in pulmonary hypertension influences other organs. The ocular complications occur as a result of elevated venous pressure in the superior vena cava and in the ophthalmic veins that cause dilation of the ocular veins, resulting in congestion of the choroid and leading to complications such as ciliary detachment, central retinal vein occlusion, acute serous retinal detachment, macular edema, retinal neovascularization, choroidal effusions, chemosis, angle-closure glaucoma, transient myopia, and proptosis.

Intraocular Pressure Measurement following Corneal Transplantation.

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Mar 5. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital, Melbourne, Australia; Centre for Eye Research Australia, University of Melbourne, Australia; Vision Eye Institute, Melbourne, Australia. Electronic address:

Measurement of intraocular pressure is an integral part of a comprehensive ocular examination, especially after a surgical intervention that can affect aqueous humor flow dynamics. Most of the intraocular pressure measurement devices are designed for 'normal' corneas and may not be accurate in eyes following corneal transplantation where there is altered corneal morphology. Raised intraocular pressure and glaucoma are known post-operative complications following transplantation, and therefore accurate intraocular pressure measurement is essential. Read More

Service d'ophtalmologie, CHU Bordeaux, France and University of Bordeaux Population Health Research Center, team LEHA, UMR 1219, F-33000 Bordeaux, France.

Randomized controlled trials are the gold standard in medical research, providing evidence of the efficacy of a treatment in well-defined patient populations. By contrast, real-world studies explore the effectiveness of treatments in routine clinical practices, often with diverse patient populations. While both randomized controlled trials and real-world studies contribute to the understanding of the benefits and risks of therapies, they generate different types of data and serve complementary purposes.

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

VAMPIRE Project, Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, Scotland.

The rising prevalence of age-related eye diseases, particularly age-related macular degeneration (AMD), places an ever-increasing burden on healthcare providers. As new treatments emerge, it is necessary to develop methods for reliably assessing patients' disease status and stratifying risk of progression. The presence of drusen in the retina represents a key early feature where size, number and morphology are thought to correlate significantly with risk of progression to sight-threatening AMD.

Central retinal artery occlusion - a new, provisional treatment approach.

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 29. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Department of Ophthalmology, University Hospitals and School of Medicine, Geneva, Switzerland.

The retinal ganglion cells infarcted in central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) are the somata of the optic nerve axons, part of the central nervous system. Consequently, CRAO with inner retinal infarction is a small vessel stroke, usually with the devastating consequence of severe visual loss in the affected eye. At present, there is no generally accepted, evidence-based therapy of non-arteritic CRAO in contrast to ischemic cerebral stroke that has well accepted treatment protocols. Read More

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 28. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Genentech, Inc., South San Francisco, California, USA.

Geographic atrophy (GA) is a progressive, advanced form of age-related macular degeneration leading to visual function impairment and irreversible vision loss. Standard clinical tests to evaluate visual function in patients with GA provide poor anatomic-functional correlation, whereas fundus imaging does not assess the visual function deficit. Microperimetry is a psychophysical visual function test that spatially maps retinal sensitivity and allows for identification of correlation of anatomic features with visual function. Read More

Microbial keratitis is a potentially blinding condition that must be treated emergently to preserve vision. Although long recognized as a significant cause of corneal blindness, our understanding of its true global scale, associated burden of disease, and etiological patterns remains somewhat limited. Current epidemiological data suggest that microbial keratitis may be epidemic in parts of the world-particularly within South, South-East, and East Asia-and may exceed 2 million cases per year worldwide.

Melanoma of the eyelid and periocular skin: Histopathologic classification and molecular pathology.

Surv Ophthalmol 2018 Dec 20. Epub 2018 Dec 20.

Department of Ophthalmology, Morsani College of Medicine, University of South Florida, Tampa, Florida, USA; Department of Pathology and Cell Biology, Morsani College of Medicine, University of South Florida, Tampa, Florida, USA.

Cutaneous melanoma, a potentially lethal malignancy of the periocular skin, represents only a small proportion of the roughly 87,000 new cases of cutaneous melanoma diagnosed annually in the United States. Most of our understanding of melanoma of the eyelid skin is extrapolated from studies of cutaneous melanoma located elsewhere. Recent years have witnessed major breakthroughs in molecular biology and genomics of cutaneous melanoma, some of which have led to the development of targeted therapies. Read More

Vernal Keratoconjunctivitis.

Surv Ophthalmol 2018 Dec 12. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

Department of Ophthalmology, Dr. Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Vernal keratoconjunctivitis, a chronic bilateral seasonal allergic inflammatory disease of the eye, is an important cause of visual debilitation and impairment of quality of life in children and young adults in certain parts of the world such as the Mediterranean areas, Central and West Africa, the Middle East, Japan, the Indian subcontinent, and South America. It usually has a self-limiting course; however, in a few cases, the disease is recurrent and leads to long-term visual disabling complications such as keratoconus and limbal stem cell deficiency. The main pathogenic mechanism is immunoglobulin E mediated; however, there may be non-immunoglobulin E and certain nonspecific hypersensitivity mechanisms. Read More

Choroidal imaging biomarkers.

Surv Ophthalmol 2018 Nov 26. Epub 2018 Nov 26.

Smt. Kanuri Santhamma Centre for Vitreo-Retinal Diseases, LV Prasad Eye Institute, Hyderabad, India. Electronic address:

The choroid is the vascular coat of the eye, and its role has been studied in multiple chorioretinal disorders. Recent advancements in choroidal imaging techniques, including enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography, swept source optical coherence tomography, en face optical coherence tomography, and optical coherence tomography angiography have facilitated an in-depth analysis of the choroid. The gradual shift from manual to automated segmentation and binarization methods have led to precise and reproducible measurements of choroidal parameters. Read More

Etiology and management of the hypertensive phase in glaucoma drainage-device surgery.

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Mar - Apr;64(2):217-224. Epub 2018 Nov 3.

New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, New York, New York, USA; Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, New York, USA.

Insertion of glaucoma drainage devices has become a mainstay in the surgical management of multiple forms of glaucoma, and the indications for this procedure continue to expand. A unique clinical challenge in the postoperative care of these devices is the hypertensive phase, a period of postoperative intraocular pressure elevation in the first three months after surgery. We discuss the influence of a variety of factors on the development of the hypertensive phase after glaucoma drainage implantation, including type of device, device material, and device surface area.

Inner, outer, and full-thickness retinal folds after rhegmatogenous retinal detachment repair: A review.

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Mar - Apr;64(2):135-161. Epub 2018 Nov 1.

Department of Ophthalmology, Stein Eye Institute, UCLA, Los Angeles, California, USA; Department of Ophthalmology, Greater Los Angeles VA Healthcare Center, Los Angeles, California, USA.

Partial-thickness folds of the inner retina and outer retina, as well as full-thickness retinal folds, may occur after the repair of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. Although these can look similar on clinical examination, imaging with optical coherence tomography facilitates differentiation. With optical coherence tomography analysis, inner retinal folds exhibit corrugations of the inner retina while outer retinal folds display hyperreflective lesions located just above the retinal pigment epithelium that may extend into the outer nuclear layer.
