Atropine 0.05% has double the efficacy of 0.01% eye drops over 2 years, and the former remains the optimal concentration among atropine concentrations in slowing the progression of myopia, a recent study has shown.
Gravitational displacement of submacular haemorrhage (SMH) after pars planar vitrectomy appears to be an effective intervention, particularly in combination with subretinal tissue plasminogen activator and intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor, a recent study has found.
Thinning of the peripapillary inferior-temporal retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) may be an early sign of neuroretinal degeneration in diabetics without diabetic retinopathy (DR), a recent study has found.

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) containing either long-acting injectable cabotegravir (CAB) or tenofovir/emtricitabine (TDF/FTC) is safe and effective for transgender women (TGW) and cisgender men who have sex with men (MSM), but CAB results in a much lower HIV incidence compared to TDF/FTC, results of the HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN) 083 have shown.
