Current Treatment and Management of Infantile Hemangiomas.

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Washington, WA, USA; Department of Oculoplastic and Reconstructive Surgery, University of Washington, WA, USA. Electronic address:

Infantile hemangiomas (IHs), otherwise known as infantile capillary hemangiomas, strawberry hemangiomas, or strawberry nevi, are non-malignant vascular tumors that commonly affect children. The natural disease course typically involves growth for up to a year followed by regression without treatment over a period of years, with no cosmetic or functional sequelae. Less commonly, however, IHs can become a threat to vision or even life depending on location and size of the lesion. Read More

Automated detection of age-related macular degeneration in color fundus photography: A systematic review.

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

Microperimetry for Geographic Atrophy Secondary to Age-Related Macular Degeneration.

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, while fundus imaging does not assess the visual function deficit. Microperimetry is a psychophysical visual function test that spatially maps retinal sensitivity and allows for correlation of anatomic features with visual function. 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

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.

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.

Helmholtz's critique of Goethe's Theory of Color: more than meets the eye.

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Mar - Apr;64(2):241-247. Epub 2018 Oct 12.

Departments of Pathology and Cell Biology, University of South Florida, Tampa, Florida, USA.

After arriving at the University of Königsberg in 1849, Hermann von Helmholtz started investigating the trichromatic hypothesis of color perception proposed by Thomas Young. Four years later in 1853, he was invited to lecture to the German Society and used the opportunity to criticize harshly Johann Goethe's Theory of Color published in 1810. Offending a revered member of the German society was an odd method of introducing the study of color to a learned audience, but the content and tone of the lecture suggested Helmholtz was more concerned about dispelling misconceptions of experimental science than in imparting knowledge on the nature of color.

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Mar - Apr;64(2):195-216. Epub 2018 Oct 6.

Centre for Eye Research Ireland, Dublin Institute of Technology, Grangegorman Lower, Dublin, Ireland; African Vision Research Institute, University of KwaZulu Natal, Durban, South Africa.

Current treatment strategies for glaucoma are limited to halting disease progression and do not restore lost visual function. Intraocular pressure is the main risk factor for glaucoma, and intraocular pressure-lowering treatment remains the mainstay of glaucoma treatment, but even successful intraocular pressure reduction does not stop the progression of glaucoma in all patients. We review the literature to determine whether nutritional interventions intended to prevent or delay the progression of glaucoma could prove to be a valuable addition to the mainstay of glaucoma therapy.

Association between serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors and acute angle closure: What is known?

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Mar - Apr;64(2):185-194. Epub 2018 Sep 29.

Department of Pathophysiology of Hearing and Balance System, Faculty of Medicine, Collegium Medicum in Bydgoszcz, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Bydgoszcz, Poland.

Serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors are widely used antidepressants with a relatively safe profile. One of the complications associated with this group of drugs is acute angle closure. The mechanisms linking serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors and acute angle closure are complex and may be interlinked with the effects of the drug on the inhibition of serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake, as well as pseudo-anticholinergic effects, dopaminergic effects, and idiosyncratic reactions with the drug molecule in the eye.
