Intravitreal ranibizumab injections have no adverse effects on corneal sensitivity, peripapillary RNFL thickness
In patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration, repeated intravitreal ranibizumab injections do not seem to have harmful effects on the thickness of the peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) and the sensitivity of the cornea, a new study reports.
The use of certain systemic medications may influence intraocular pressure (IOP), and potentially, glaucoma risk, according to a post hoc analysis of the SEED* study.
Topical tacrolimus appears to be effective against shield ulcers and corneal epitheliopathy, successfully treating patients even without adjuvant steroids, according to data from an open cohort study.
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.
Academic difficulty due to visual problems has been reported in children who had concussions, noted a new US study.
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.
Treatment adherence in patients requiring pharmacologic control of intraocular pressure (IOP) may be better with fixed-dose combinations than with separate formulations of IOP-lowering medications, according to the results of a trial.
