  • Comment on: Eye hazards of laser 'pointers' in perspective
    Fahd Quhill
    Dear Editor I would like to thank the authors for their recent editorial "Eye hazards of laser 'pointers' in perspective" and that I agree and support the majority of points raised within the article. However I would like to correct one assertion made regarding the pilot injury reported by my team, that was published as a case report in January 2016. I would like to clarify some facts; the laser illumination incident was witnesse...

  • Treat-and-Extend regimen for diabetic macular oedema: Considerations from real medicine.
    Fernando Lopez-Herrero

    Dear Editor, After reading the article entitled "Ranibizumab 0,5 Treat-and-Extend regimen for diabetic macular oedema: the RETAIN study" by Prunte et al (1), there are several considerations that we would like to bring to your attention. From the data provided, we noticed how 48.3% of patients in the "pro re nata" (PRN) regime required <=9 injections over a two-year period. On the other hand, this condition in "treat...

  • Outer retinal tubulation is a process of neurodegeneration
    Katie M. Litts, BS

    We read with interest the report by Espina et al(1) regarding changes occurring in outer retinal tubulation (ORT) during the course of intravitreal anti-VEGF treatment.(2) These authors retrospectively describe ORT changes observed during and after anti-VEGF treatment and correlated these changes to disease activity or presence of retinal fluid in 31 patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) with...

  • Predictive value of QFT-G alone in cases of presumed ocular tuberculosis
    Rohan Chawla

    Dear Editor,

    We read with interest the article titled "Predictive factors for treatment failure in patients with presumed ocular tuberculosis in an area of low endemic prevalence" by Agarwal et al published in Br J Ophthalmol 2016;100:348-355.

    We wanted to point out few things regarding the article - The diagnosis of ocular tuberculosis was presumptive in most cases. The authors have used clinical guide...

  • Trephination size and success of big-bubble formation in deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty for keratoconus.
    Alireza Peyman

    We enthusiastically read the article entitled: "Factors influencing big-bubble formation during deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty in keratoconus" by Feizi et al (1). Authors have included many variables to find factors influencing success in the big bubble formation and defined meaningful P value for statistical significance to less than 0.05. From statistical viewpoint multiple comparisons could increase the false di...

  • Re:Trephination size and success of big-bubble formation in deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty for keratoconus.
    Dr. Sepehr Feizi

    We would like to acknowledge our appreciation for Dr. Peyman for paying close attention to our article and raising important points. Now, big-bubble deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) is a corneal transplantation technique of choice for corneal stromal pathologies not involving endothelium such as keratoconus. The principle shortcoming of this technique is that it is technically challenging. Any attempts to incr...

    Alireza Peyman

    The response by Feizi et al is comprehensive and notable. But the condition could be simply explicated by a clear demonstration of actual data in a table representing DALK success-failure versus different trephination diameters. If the authors accept to publish these data, every reader would be able to deduce the practically applicable end result.
