Chasan and coauthors evaluate the effect of a community-based diabetic teleretinal screening program on eye care use and resources.
Yen et al determine the accuracy of photographic graders who were not ophthalmologists in diagnosing cytomegalovirus retinitis from digital fundus photographs.
Mataftsi et al assess the effect of primary intraocular lens implantation and surgery timing on the incidence of postoperative glaucoma in infants.
Choi et al identify the optic disc characteristics related to bihemispheric retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) defects in early-stage glaucoma.
To identify CNGA3 mutations, Li et al examine clinical data and genomic DNA in 267 Chinese probands from 138 families with cone dystrophies and 129 families with Leber congenital amaurosis. They study variants in CNGA3 and associated phenotypes, assessed by Sanger sequencing of CNGA3, bioinformatics of variants, and segregation analysis.
Cornish and coauthors describe the concentric macular rings found on infrared reflectance in patients with foveal hypoplasia.
Mrejen et al propose a classification of acute zonal occult outer retinopathy (AZOOR) based on clinical fundus and multimodal imaging. They performed a retrospective review of patients diagnosed as having AZOOR or AZOOR complex and assembled 30 cases. Multimodal imaging had been performed in most patients at the initial visit or at subsequent follow-up visits.
Song et al study the cone photoreceptors and the albipunctate spots in a patient with fundus albipunctatus at single cell resolution using a fluorescence adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscope
Marmor and Hu determine the relationship between progression of retinopathy and the severity of disease, using objective data from optical coherence tomography, and assess the value of early screening for the toxic effects of hydroxychloroquine.
Bressler et al evaluate the reproducibility of retinal thickness measurements from optical coherence tomography (OCT) images obtained by time-domain instruments and formulate equations to convert retinal thickness measurements from spectral-domain OCT to equivalent values on time-domain OCT.
Rachitskaya et al examine the clinical course of 6 postoperative and trauma-related cases of endophthalmitis caused by Curvularia.
Shams et al investigate the management and success rate of so-called “functional failure” of dacryocystorhinostomy for nasolacrimal duct obstruction by experienced lacrimal surgeons.
Hou et al identify the histological and immunohistochemical characteristics of retroprosthetic membranes associated with corneal melt among patients who underwent Boston type 1 keratoprosthesis explantation because of donor corneal melt. Seven specimens from 7 eyes were stained for analysis, and light microscopy and XY-karyotyping were performed.
Scott et al investigate whether low-dose oral doxycycline can improve or slow the deterioration of retinal function and can induce regression or slow disease progression in nonprolific diabetic retinopathy (NPDR).
