  • Comments on: Five-year results of Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (ReLEx SMILE)
    ESHA AGARWAL

    We read with great interest article entitled "Five-year results of Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (ReLEx SMILE)" by Blum et al (1). They concluded SMILE to be an effective, stable and safe procedure for treatment of myopia and myopic astigmatism in the long term. However, few queries come to our mind.

    In their study they observed regression of 0.48 D over a period of five years, which they attributed mainly...

  • Re: Response to AREDS supplements according to genetic factors: survival analysis approach using the eye as the unit of analysis
    Carl C. Awh

    We read with interest the article by Seddon, Silver, and Rosner1, in which the authors studied progression from intermediate AMD to either geographic atrophy or choroidal neovascularization as a function of genetic risk and AREDS treatment assignment. This study of 4124 eyes by leaders in AMD genetic epidemiology is by far the largest series to analyze and validate a gene/treatment interaction. The authors show that CFH an...

  • Re:Response to: Computer-aided design and three-dimensional printing in the manufacturing of an ocular prosthesis
    Ilse Mombaerts

    Response to e-letter to the editor

    We thank Dr. Mourits and co-workers for their interest and comments regarding our manuscript on impression-free three-dimensional (3D) printed anophthalmic socket, and appreciate their recognition of its value in the manufacturing of an ocular prosthesis.(1)

    Dr. Mourits and co-workers propose an alternative technique, impression mould through silicon injection in the a...

  • Outcome of two-muscle surgery for large-angle intermittent exotropia in children - A comment
    Shailja Tibrewal

    We read the article titled "Outcome of two-muscle surgery for large- angle intermittent exotropia in children" by the authors Ki Won Jin and Dong Gyu Choi with great enthusiasm.1 The authors have compared the success of two muscle surgery for large angle (>=40 Prism Diopters (PD)) vs moderate-angle (>=20 and <30PD) intermittent exotropia. Neither of the two ranges described, include deviation between 30 to 39PD....

  • Response to: Computer-aided design and three-dimensional printing in the manufacturing of an ocular prosthesis
    Daphne Mourits

    With interest we have read the article of Ruiters et al.1 in which they present a 3 dimensional method for ocular prosthesis manufacturing. In our practice we also manufacture individual customized ocular prosthesis using 3D techniques. We confirm that this computer aided method improves prosthetic fitting and may aid the production process when translated into 3D prints. Our method does however differ on several points....

  • Re:Comment on: Morphological features in anterior scleral inflammation using swept-source optical coherence tomography with multiple B-scan averaging
    Akihito Uji

    Dear Editor:

    We thank Dr. Ebneter for his interest in our article.1 He pointed out that we included contralateral eyes of unilateral diseased eyes as control eyes and both eyes of bilateral affected eyes were included as diseased eyes. Accordingly, we performed additional analyses. We excluded contralateral eyes from control eyes and included only right eyes of bilateral affected eyes as diseased eyes. As a resul...
