Primary intravenous chemotherapy (IVC), with adjuvant treatments as required, is a safe and efficient approach for group D retinoblastoma eyes, according to a 13-year retrospective analysis. IVC has achieved 63-percent eye salvage rate, with no metastatic spread from intraocular retinoblastoma and no deaths.
The optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is better than fluorescein angiography (FA) in discriminating the central subfield (CSF) and parafoveal macular microvasculature, particularly for foveal avascular zone (FAZ) disruption and capillary dropout, without the need for an intravenous injection of fluorescein, a new study has found. Furthermore, FA also has a higher number of nongradable images.
There is a significant association between type 2 diabetes (T2D)-related genetic loci and higher risks of diabetic retinopathy (DR), independent of traditional risk factors, a recent study has found.
A discordance between symptoms and signs in dry eye disease (DED) may indicate self-perceived health, with a new study from the Netherlands suggesting that the presence of greater symptoms than signs is associated with lower self-perceived health.
Optical coherence tomographic angiography (OCTA) may improve visualization of ill-defined choroidal neovascularization (CNV) with dye-based angiography, including occult CNV, according to a recent study.
The incidence of positive corneoscleral donour rim fungal cultures after keratoplasty is not common, according to a recent study. However, it carries an increased risk of postoperative fungal infection, which can be reduced with prophylactic antimycotic therapy when culture-positive donour rims are identified.
Several fall hazards were identified in the homes of individuals with glaucoma, and hazard numbers were not lower for persons with worse visual field (VF) damage, according to a cross-sectional study using baseline data (2013 to 2015) from the ongoing Falls in Glaucoma Study (FIGS).
Individuals with intermediate uveitis have achieved good long-term visual outcomes despite having a long disease course with frequent complications, finds a cross-sectional study.
There is no association between mild dynamic exercise and changes in the thickness and area of the choroidal area, a new study reports. On the other hand, there appears to be changes in the choroidal blood flow velocity.
Lens power, axial length-to-corneal radius (AL/CR) ratio and AL are associated with the presence of any diabetic retinopathy (DR) and moderate DR in persons with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), a recent study has found.
