Xue et al (see page 559)

Ultra-widefield fluorescein angiography was used to assess retinal perfusion in diabetic macular oedema. Eyes with significant peripheral ischaemia were associated with more diffuse macular oedema but responded well to anti-VEGF therapy.

Sadda et al (see page 564)

Optical coherence tomography angiography image artifact was present in 89.4% of eyes from normal subjects and patients with age-related macular degeneration and macular edema secondary to diabetic retinopathy and retinal vein occlusion.

Hasegawa et al (see page 569)

Low reflective spaces in the retinal nerve fiber layer in the optical coherence tomographic images were observed to correlate with the presence of nonperfused areas of retina in eyes with macular oedema associated with retinal vein occlusion.

Singh et al (see page 574)

For treatment of macular oedema secondary to retinal vein occlusion, anti-vascular endothelial growth factor therapy can result in differing degrees in improvement in visual acuity depending on the initial presenting acuity.

Lee et al (see page 580)

In a study of 29 patients presenting with acute or chronic central serous chorioretinopathy, differential choroidal vessel dilation patterns were observed between acute and chronic disease.

Chhablani et al (see page 587)

Our online preferred practice survey tracks international trends and variations in the management of Central Serous Chorioretinopathy and this data that may be helpful for planning future clinical trials.

Cheung et al (see page 591)

Neovascular AMD, including both PCV and tAMD subtypes was osberved to have a detrimental impact on VRQoL in Asian subjects indpendent of level of vision impiarment.

Sarraf et al (see page 597)

Quantitative optical coherence tomography angiography of type 3 neovascularization in age-related macular degeneration revealed significant regression of the microvascular morphology after a single anti-VEGF injection.

Patel et al (see page 603)

This prospective cross-sectional study reports the repeatability of swept-source optical coherence tomography derived retinal and choroidal thickness measurements in eyes with neovascular age related macular degeneration.

Querques et al (see page 609)

OCT-Angiography was observed to have high sensitivity and specificity for the detection of choroidal neovasculariasation in myopic eyes. The absence or presence of neovascular activity was significantly associated with specific OCT-A features of neovascularization.

Levison et al (see page 616)

Optical coherence tomography angiography can identify choroidal neovascularization in posterior uveitis associated with development of choroidal neovascularization. This technique can provide a less invasive method of diagnosis and can help guide treatment of these patients.

Brodie et al (see page 623)

ERG analysis of retinal functional recovery after ophthalmic artery chemosurgery in eyes with retinoblastoma and minimal baseline retinal function demonstrated that retinal recovery is common, and that significant recovery requires reattachment of the retina if detached at baseline.

Petrou et al (see page 629)

Retinal detachment in eyes with Boston keratoprosthesis seems to have specific characteristics and the visual acuity remains poor despite successful anatomical results. 23 gauge vitrectomy can be effectively performed in these patients.

Graue-Hernandez et al (see page 634)

Treatment of non-traumatic corneal perforations often requirea multiple procedures such as cyanoacrylate patch or penetrating keratoplasty.

Fasolo et al (see page 640)

Cultured limbal epithelial transplantation can effectively restore the ocular surface, but graft failure and complications can occur.

Wang et al (see page 650)

Lenticule extraction surgery with microincision showed better biomechanical stability, which may offer better refractive stability as well as postoperative safety.

Kinoshita et al (see page 655)

A new type of specular microscope enabled observation of a wide range of corneal endothelial layers in vivo and comparison of specific areas among subjects.

Steger et al (see page 660)

High-resolution anterior segment optical coherence tomography is a useful tool in the assessment and monitoring of pterygia and detection of corneal stromal scarring, which is more commonly associated with flat pterygia.

Vijaya et al (see page 665)

Laser peripheral iridotomy for primary angle closure suspects was observed to influence progression of cortical cataract in six years after the procedure.

Subramanian et al (see page 671)

Optic disc swelling without vision loss may precede the onset of non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy by weeks or months. Timely recognition of this condition may allow future institution of therapy before vision loss ensues.

Tsai et al (see page 676)

Elevated CTGF expression in GO orbital fibroblasts is associated with gender, serum TSH receptor antibody levels, and clinical activity and severity in GO patients, suggesting that increased levels of CTGF are clinically and pathologically significant.

Liao et al (see page 681)

Late exposures of porous implants were the major complications of orbital implantation. Evisceration and pegging procedures are associated with a risk of implant exposure. Autogenous dermis fat grafts could be used for large-area implant exposure.

Lamoureux et al (see page 686)

Vision-specific emotional well-being was greatly reduced in Chinese adults with severe bilateral VI or glaucoma, highlighting the need for strategies to slow the progression of VI and interventions to improve coping skills and emotional management.
