Ocular findings in Loeys-Dietz syndrome (see page 1036)

Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS), an autosomal-dominant connective tissue disorder that shares clinical features with Marfan syndrome, is associated with decreased central cornea thickness, mild myopia and increased axial length. Ectopia lentis is uncommon. Hypertelorism, scleral changes and retinal vascular tortuosity were not features of LDS in our cohort.

Vision in former very low birthweight young adults with and without retinopathy of prematurity compared with term born controls: the NZ 1986 VLBW follow-up study (see page 1041)

Compared with term born controls, former very low birthweight young adults with a history of untreated retinopathy of prematurity had poorer visual acuity, were less likely to drive and more likely to experience vision problems affecting daily living.

Prevalence and factors associated with age-related macular degeneration in a southwestern island population of Japan: the Kumejima study (see page 1047)

The prevalence of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in a rural island of southwestern Japan was higher than the averaged prevalence of the Asian population. Furthermore, AMD was associated with age, sex, history of cataract surgery and axial length.

Visual field indices and patterns of visual field deficits in mesopic and dark-adapted two-colour fundus-controlled perimetry in macular diseases (see page 1054)

Dark-adapted, two-colour, fundus-controlled perimetry provides additional diagnostic information and allows for refined structure–function correlation in macular disease. Hereby, the variability-weighted mean deviation and pattern standard deviation exhibited the lowest retest variability of the tested visual field indices. …
