Shams and Selva describe a man with a fistula extending from the anteriorethmoid air cells through the lacrimal sac to the overlying skin with coexisting nasolacrimal duct obstruction. Endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy was performed. Probing of the common canaliculus and fistula tract under direct visualization allowed the identification of the internal fistula origin. The fistula was excised.
In a randomized controlled trial, Glanz and coauthors determine the efficacy of an automated, interactive, telephone-based health communication intervention for improving glaucoma treatment adherence among 312 patients in 2 hospital-based eye clinics.

In a retrospective case series, Ku et al examine the characteristics and visual outcome in 207 patients with retinal vasculitis.
Ghassemi and Shields evaluate the efficacy and complications of intravitreal chemotherapy for viable vitreous seeding from retinoblastoma in patients who received intravitreal injection of melphalan (8-50 μg in 0.05 mL) followed by injection site cryotherapy.
In a multicenter, longitudinal, observational, volunteer study of refractive error and ocular development in children from 5 ethnic/racial groups, Kleinstein and coauthors report the percentage of new cases of myopia in 4927 children aged 5 to 16 years who participated in the Collaborative Longitudinal Evaluation of Ethnicity and Refractive Error Study between 1989 and 2009.
Chaudhuri and Demer examined a 17-year surgical experience comparing lateral rectus (LR) resection with medial rectus (MR) recession in adults with divergence paralysis esotropia (DPE) to propose MR recession to be equally as effective as LR resection, which has been the preferred treatment for DPE.
Bansal et al study the long-term safety of pars plana vitrectomy in a large cohort of 47 patients undergoing treatment for vitreal hemorrhage after radiotherapy for uveal melanoma.
To assess outer retinal layer maturation during late gestation and early postnatal life, Dubis and colleagues evaluated 39 patients using a handheld optical coherence tomography system. Foveal images from 16 participants were normal and were evaluated for inner retinal excavation and the presence of outer retinal reflective bands.
