Patterson and Ryan report a technique that involves continuous, rather than intermittent, monitoring of subretinal fluid drainage via indirect ophthalmoscopy during scleral buckling procedures.
Inoue and coauthors describe a useful device (EzSpec; a disposable eyelid speculum recently designed for intravitreal injections) for removing eyelash artifacts and for potentially increasing the sensitivity of the Optos Optomap system, thereby improving the detection of retinal lesions.
Do et al assess the benefit of increased follow-up and treatment with ranibizumab in the Ranibizumab for Edema of the Macula in Diabetes (READ-2) Study.
Borkar et al studied whether cytotoxic and invasive Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains differentially influence clinical presentation, outcomes, or therapeutic response in bacterial keratitis. Isolates were subtyped as cytotoxic or invasive, and change in visual acuity was compared at 3 months. See editorial by Jones.
Thompson and coauthors evaluate the efficacy of the 175-mm2 Molteno3 implant in patients with nonneovascular glaucoma.
Noma et al evaluate vitreous fluid levels of 7 inflammatory factors and macular edema in 39 patients with branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) compared with 21 patients with idiopathic macular hole.
In a retrospective data analysis, Fabian et al assess the outcome and risk factors for failure of pneumatic retinopexy in eyes with primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) in 276 eyes of 271 patients treated from January 1, 2000, through June 30, 2011, at the Goldschleger Eye Institute, Tel Aviv, Israel.
In a retrospective case series, Watanabe et al determine the relationship between the morphology of the fovea and visual acuity in patients with an untreated idiopathic epiretinal membrane.
McAnany and colleagues evaluated changes in visual acuity (VA) over time in 43 patients with Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA) and mutations in the CEP290 gene.
Dorn and colleagues investigated the ability of 28 blind subjects implanted with a 60-electrode Argus II retinal prosthesis system to detect the direction of a moving object.
Kushner identified patients in whom rectus muscle transposition for pattern strabismus worsened torsion or transposition for torsion worsened pattern strabismus and suggests guidelines for how to avoid such occurrences.
Wang and colleagues aimed to develop a reliable, reproducible rat model of posterior ischemic optic neuropathy (PION) and study the cellular responses in the optic nerve and retina.
To investigate the perspectives of vision care providers (VCPs) on inquiring about driving among their older adult patients, Leinberger and colleagues surveyed attitudes and behaviors of 500 VCPs in addressing driving concerns. Associations between provider or practice characteristics and survey responses were identified.
To characterize situations that prompt vision care providers (VCPs) to inquire about their older patients’ driving, Musch and colleagues surveyed 500 VCPs about the types of information they consider and the factors that influence these inquiries. Factors associated with the survey responses were identified using ordinal logistic regression analyses.
Naik et al compare vision-related functioning and health-related quality of life of patients with noninfectious intermediate or posterior uveitis with the US general population and a normal-vision reference group.
