Yohannan and colleagues conducted a 1:1 community randomized trial to determine the prevalence of Chlamydia trachomatis infection in communities
randomized to 3 rounds of annual mass drug administrations with azithromycin compared with communities randomized to a stopping rule, where mass drug
administrations could cease if the infection rate was low.
Parsa and Robert propose a pathophysiologic mechanism to unify a variety of disparate sporadic congenital malformations. See the editorial by Hoyt.
Seddon et al develop and validate a predictive model for progression to advanced stages of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in 2 independent cohorts.
Yin and coauthors examine the change in antibiotic resistance of ocular surface flora with use of antibiotics after intravitreal injection for age-related macular

diabetic retinopathy, clinically significant macular edema, retinal hard exudates, and proliferative diabetic retinopathy in the Diabetes Control and Complications
Chang and coauthors address whether peeling of the internal limiting membrane is necessary during vitrectomy for macular pucker. They performed a retrospective
analysis to investigate the effects of “single peeling,” in which only the epiretinal membrane was peeled, and “double peeling,” in which the internal limiting membrane was also stained and peeled.
