Infants with hyperglycaemia are at an increased risk of having retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), a recent study has found. Meanwhile, no such effect was observed for serum levels of glycated albumin (GlyA).
Children with retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) who receive antivascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) therapy fare better than their counterparts who undergo primary laser treatment, a study has found.
Among patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD), fluctuations in retinal fluid volume during the maintenance phase antivascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) therapy may lead to long-term deterioration in visual acuity (VA), a recent study has found.
Excision of ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) with a 2-mm margin does not lead to high rates of positive surgical margins, a recent study has found. For patients who do show positive margins, adjuvant topical therapy is enough to prevent recurrence.
Use of face masks by both patient and physician during intravitreal antivascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) injections does not modify the risk of presumed acute-onset bacterial endophthalmitis, but a reduced rate of culture-positive endophthalmitis is noted, reveals a study.
Intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) injections induce short-lived visual benefit but ease the need for vitrectomy in proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) patients with vitreous haemorrhage (VH) who had undergone prior complete panretinal photocoagulation (PRP), a recent study has found.
Differential diagnosis of preseptal and orbital cellulitis show “extremely sensitive” clinical presentation and C-reactive protein (CRP), according to a study, noting that prompt initiation of intravenous antibiotics is required and helps prevent surgical procedures even in those with incipient abscesses.
Patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) show progressive reduction in the thickness of peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer, suggestive of early neurodegeneration, a recent study has found.
