Glaucoma discrimination by macular scans

Kotowski et al evaluated the glaucoma discriminating ability of macular retinal layers as measured by SD-OCT in 51 healthy, 49 glaucoma suspect and 63 glaucomatous eyes. OCT macular scans were segmented into macular nerve fibre layer (mNFL), ganglion cell layer with inner plexiform layer (GCIP), ganglion cell complex (composed of mNFL and GCIP), outer retinal complex and total retina. Glaucoma discriminating ability for all macular parameters was similar to mean circumpapillary retinal nerve fibre layer. (see page 1420)

Long-term visual outcomes in retinopathy of prematurity

Singh et al describe the long-term outcomes of lens-sparing vitrectomy (LSV) for retinopathy of prematurity in a single-centre retrospective series of 37 eyes (30 patients) with a follow-up of at least 5 years. Of eyes that underwent LSV for Stage 4A or 4B: 63% had measurable visual acuity (mean logMAR 0.92 for Stage 4A, 1.63 for Stage …
