Statistics from

Tear film and ocular surface assessment in psoriasis (see page 302)

In a cross-sectional study of 66 patients with psoriasis, the ocular surface parameters measured suggested alterations in the ocular surface, including the tear film lipid subphase, corneo-conjunctival epithelium and lid margin.

Anterior, posterior, and biomechanical parameters of cornea during pregnancy in healthy eyes: a cohort study (see page 309)

This study revealed physiological, statistically and clinically insignificant ocular changes during pregnancy, including an increase in corneal keratometry and biomechanical values, while corneal thickness and IOP decreased. These parameters returned to near pre-pregnancy values 1 year after delivery.

Clinical outcomes after implantation of a toric intraocular lens with a transitional conic toric surface (see page 311)

Visual acuity and rotational stability of the Precizon Toric IOL showed good results and the subjective postoperative astigmatism was reduced.

Detecting optic nerve head swelling on ultrasound and optical coherence tomography in children and young people: an observational study (see page 318)

Not all children with brain tumours have papilloedema. Assessment of optic nerve swelling via funduscopy, ultrasound and OCT can contribute to the suspicion of raised intracranial pressure, but history and core neurological assessment may be more relevant in the workup of suspected brain tumour.

The interpretation of results of 10–2 visual fields should consider individual variability in the position of the optic disc and temporal raphe (see page 323)

Individual differences were detected in the position of …
