Rheological Properties and Age-Related Changes of the Human Vitreous Humor.

Front Bioeng Biotechnol 2018 18;6:199. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Department of Biomedical Engineering, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, United States.

The vitreous humor is a fragile, transparent hydrogel situated between the lens and the retina, occupying 80% of the eye's volume. Due to its viscoelastic behavior, the vitreous serves as a mechanical damper for the eye, absorbing impacts, and protecting the lens and retina. The vitreous liquefies with age, which compromises its function as a shock absorber and causes complications including retinal detachment, macular holes, and vitreous hemorrhage. Read More

Cuticular drusen associated with aneurysmal type 1 neovascularization (polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy).

Int J Retina Vitreous 2018 5;4:44. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

1Vitreous Retina Macula Consultants of New York, 460 Park Ave., New York, NY 10022 USA.

The proposed term, AT1, includes an expanded clinical spectrum of aneurysmal (polypoidal) lesions observed in both different ethnicities and associated with varied clinical phenotypes.

Case Presentation: A 61-year-old woman of European descent was referred for a new, asymptomatic retinal hemorrhage found on routine examination. Read More

TRAUMATIC CORNEAL LACERATION IN NORTHWESTERN NIGERIA.

J West Afr Coll Surg 2017 Oct-Dec;7(4):72-84

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, Ilorin, Nigeria.

Background: Corneal laceration is a partial or full thickness corneal injury resulting from direct or indirect ocular trauma. Cornea laceration generally leads to the development of corneal opacity which is a significant cause of blindness worldwide, particularly in developing countries where facility for corneal transplant is not readily available. Clinical outcomes depend on causes, the part of cornea involved, and availability of skilled human resource and presence of corneal transplant services. Read More

Sympathetic ophthalmia in fellow eye after vitrectomy for massive subretinal hemorrhage secondary to polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy.

Int Med Case Rep J 2018 30;11:293-296. Epub 2018 Oct 30.

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science, Nagoya City University Graduate School of Medical Sciences, Nagoya, Aichi, Japan,

We experienced a case of sympathetic ophthalmia in a fellow eye after vitrectomy for subretinal hemorrhage related to polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy. A 60-year-old male consulted us for polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy with subretinal hemorrhage in his left eye. The recurrence of massive subretinal hemorrhage refractory to repeated pars plana vitrectomies leads to phthisis bulbi. Read More

Bilateral Vitreous Hemorrhage Following Bilateral Intravitreal Injections of Bevacizumab in an Infant With Retinopathy of Prematurity.

Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2018 Nov;49(11):893-896

Since the publication of BEAT-ROP in 2011, intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) has become increasingly common for the treatment of posterior type 1 retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). However, long-term data on the safety and efficacy of IVB for ROP are lacking. Vitreous hemorrhage following bevacizumab injections have been rarely reported in infants with ROP, and the need for treatment of these hemorrhages remains in question. Read More

Beta-Thalassemia Minor Manifesting as Proliferative Retinopathy.

Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2018 Oct;49(10):e161-e164

Beta-thalassemia (β-thalassemia) minor is characterized by a mutation in one of the two β-globin genes (HBB) that produce the β-globin chains in the hemoglobin molecule. Although other hemoglobinopathies have been frequently associated with retinal disease, there are limited reports of retinal pathology with β-thalassemia minor. We report two patients with β-thalassemia minor presenting with decreased vision, vitreous hemorrhage, and proliferative retinopathy. Read More

Comparison of Two Modified Sutureless Techniques of Scleral Fixation of Intraocular Lens.

Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2018 Oct;49(10):e129-e134

Background And Objective: To compare the visual outcome and complications of two different sutureless scleral-fixated intraocular lens (IOL) implantation techniques, that is, intrascleral IOL fixation technique and modified Yamane's technique of scleral fixation of IOL.

Patients And Methods: Patients who underwent scleral fixation of IOL (SFIOL) from June 2015 to February 2017 with more than 6 months of follow-up were examined retrospectively.
