Persistent Globe Flattening in Astronauts following Long-Duration Spaceflight.

Neuroophthalmology 2021 3;45(1):29-35. Epub 2020 Sep 3.

Department of Ophthalmology, Blanton Eye Institute, Houston Methodist Hospital, Houston, Texas, USA.

Posterior globe flattening has been well-documented in astronauts both during and after long-duration space flight (LDSF) and has been observed as early as 10 days into a mission on the International Space Station. Globe flattening (GF) is thought to be caused by the disc centred anterior forces created by elevated volume and/or pressure within the optic nerve sheath (ONS). This might be the result of increased intracranial pressure, increased intraorbital ONS pressure from compartmentalisation or a combination of these mechanisms. Read More

Effects of blue light-exposed retinal pigment epithelial cells on the process of ametropia.

Biochem Biophys Res Commun 2021 Apr 27;549:14-20. Epub 2021 Feb 27.

Department of Ophthalmology, Ninth People's Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, Shanghai, 200011, China; Shanghai Key Laboratory of Orbital Diseases and Ocular Oncology, Shanghai, 200011, China. Electronic address:

Ametropia is one of the most common ocular disorders worldwide, to which almost half of visual impairments are attributed. Growing evidence has linked the development of ametropia with ambient light, including blue light, which is ubiquitous in our surroundings and has the highest photonic energy among the visible spectrum. However, the underlying mechanism of blue light-mediated ametropia remains controversial and unclear. Read More

Visual disturbances during prolonged space missions.

Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2021 Jan;32(1):69-73

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of California, San Diego, California, USA.

Purpose Of Review: During prolonged spaceflight, astronauts often experience ocular changes, due to constant head-ward fluid shifts in space as compared with Earth. This article reviews symptoms, likely causes, and potential solutions, such as lower body negative pressure, to counteract space-associated neuroocular syndrome (SANS).

Assessing the validity of corneal power estimation using conventional keratometry for intraocular lens power calculation in eyes with Fuch's dystrophy undergoing Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty.

Graefes Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmol 2021 Apr 13;259(4):1061-1070. Epub 2020 Nov 13.

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Muenster Medical Center, Albert-Schweitzer-Campus 1, Building D15, 48149, Muenster, Germany.

Purpose: The present retrospective study was designed to test the hypothesis that the postoperative posterior to preoperative anterior corneal curvature radii (PPPA) ratio in eyes with Fuch's dystrophy undergoing Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) is significantly different to the posterior to anterior corneal curvature radii (PA) ratio in virgin eyes and therefore renders conventional keratometry (K) and the corneal power derived by it invalid for intraocular lens (IOL) power calculation.

Methods: Measurement of corneal parameters was performed using Scheimpflug imaging (Pentacam HR, Oculus, Germany). In 125 eyes with Fuch's dystrophy undergoing DMEK, a fictitious keratometer index was calculated based on the PPPA ratio. Read More

Refractive outcomes following cataract combined with lamellar keratoplasty: femtosecond-DSEK versus microkeratome-DSAEK.

Int Ophthalmol 2021 Feb 22;41(2):639-647. Epub 2020 Oct 22.

S. Fyodorov Eye Microsurgery State Institution, Moscow, Russia.

Purpose: Prediction of postoperative refraction following posterior lamellar keratoplasty is crucial for choosing proper intraocular lens power in combined surgeries. Femtosecond laser-assisted Descemet stripping endothelial keratoplasty (FS-DSEK) creates thin, planar grafts while microkeratome-assisted Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) creates non-planar, concaved grafts. We evaluated whether this fundamental difference affects the refractive outcomes in cataract surgery combined with FS-DSEK compared to cataract surgery combined with microkeratome-assisted DSAEK.
