Statistics from

BTNL2 gene polymorphism and sarcoid uveitis (see page 1690)

The butyrophilin-like 2 G16071A gene polymorphism seems to predispose for sarcoidosis; however, it does not seem to predispose for all subtypes of sarcoid uveitis.

Retinal vessel oxygen saturation is affected in uveitis associated with Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease (see page 1695)

Retinal oximetry may be a valuable tool in monitoring disease progression and might provide new insights into pathophysiology of uveitis associated with VKH disease

Calcification of hydrophilic acrylic intraocular lenses following secondary surgical procedures in the anterior and posterior segments (see page 1700)

The authors report 15 cases of calcification in hydrophilic acrylic intraocular lenses following corneal, glaucoma and vitreo-retinal surgery, including lenses with hydrophobic surface properties.

Clinical and microbiological characteristics of Moraxella keratitis (see page 1704)

In this single centre retrospective review, the authors demonstrate the value of Moraxella subspecies identification by reporting significant differences in the clinical features and prognosis of M. nonliquifasciens and M. lacunata compared with other subspecies.

Long-term outcomes of penetrating keratoplasty for corneal complications of herpes zoster ophthalmicus (see page 1710)

"Penetrating keratoplasty can achieve favorable tectonic and visual outcomes in patients with corneal complications from herpes zoster ophthalmicus. Long term visual potential may be limited by co-morbid ocular diseases.

Comparison between Manual-Trephination vs femtosecond laser-assisted deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty for keratoconus (see page 1716)

In this retrospective comparative study, femtosecond laser-assisted DALK showed similar clinical outcomes in BSCVA and keratometric astigmatism at 12-month and 24-mont postoperative examinations compared to manual DALK. It also showed less residual myopia and a better corneal topography profile.

Treatment of neurotrophic keratopathy with minimally invasive corneal neurotization: long-term clinical outcomes and evidence of corneal reinnervation (see page 1724)

"In this prospective study, patients with neurotrophic keratopathy showed significant improvement in corneal sensation and corneal epithelial integrity 24 months after corneal neurotization. Evidence of corneal reinnervation was confirmed with …
