JAMA Ophthalmol. 2015;133(3):246-254. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2014.3923

This multicenter prospective, double-masked, controlled clinical trial found that most penetrating corneal grafts for Fuchs dystrophy or pseudophakic or aphakic corneal edema remain clear at the 10-year follow-up.

This original investigation suggests an increase in women publishing original investigations in ophthalmic literature, but no increase in editorial authorship. Also see the Invited Commentary by Haller.

Secular Trends of Reduced Visual Acuity From 1985 to 2010 and Disease Burden Projection for 2020 and 2030 Among Primary and Secondary School Students in China

Abstract Full Text

JAMA Ophthalmol. 2015;133(3):262-268. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2014.4899

Sun et al describe the secular trends from 1985 to 2010 and project the burden in 2020 and 2030 of reduced visual acuity in China. They found that there was an increasing trend of reduced visual acuity in both urban and rural areas from 1985 to 2010 in China.

Patient-Reported Vision-Related Quality of Life Differences Between Superior and Inferior Hemifield Visual Field Defects in Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma

Abstract Full Text

JAMA Ophthalmol. 2015;133(3):269-275. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2014.4908

This prospective cross-sectional study reports that the superior hemifield integrated visual field is strongly associated with difficulty with near activities. The inferior hemifield integrated visual field impacts vision-specific role difficulties and general and peripheral vision. The impact of a visual field defect on patient-reported vision-related quality of life may depend not only on its severity but also its hemifield location.

Prospective Evaluation of Teleophthalmology in Screening and Recurrence Monitoring of Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration: A Randomized Clinical Trial

Abstract Full Text
free access
JAMA Ophthalmol. 2015;133(3):276-282. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2014.5014

This randomized clinical trial reports that a delay of referral to treatment time could not be identified when comparing teleophthalmologic screening for suspected neovascular AMD with retinal specialist–based screening. Teleophthalmologic monitoring for neovascular AMD recurrence resulted in longer wait times for treatment reinitiation, but no adverse visual outcomes were identified.

Intraoperative High-Dose Rate of Radioactive Phosphorus 32 Brachytherapy for Diffuse Recalcitrant Conjunctival Neoplasms: A Retrospective Case Series and Report of Toxicity

Abstract Full Text

JAMA Ophthalmol. 2015;133(3):283-289. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2014.5079

This retrospective case series reports that an intraoperative high-dose rate of 32P brachytherapy in selected cases can be a novel adjunct in the treatment of diffuse conjunctival squamous cell carcinoma, sebaceous carcinoma, or lymphoma.

Risk Factors for Developing Thyroid-Associated Ophthalmopathy Among Individuals With Graves Disease

Abstract Full Text

JAMA Ophthalmol. 2015;133(3):290-296. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2014.5103

This longitudinal cohort study reports that a thyroidectomy and statin use are associated with substantially reduced hazards for thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy among patients with Graves disease.

Comparison of Retinal and Choriocapillaris Thicknesses Following Sitting to Supine Transition in Healthy Individuals and Patients With Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Abstract Full Text

JAMA Ophthalmol. 2015;133(3):297-303. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2014.5168

This prospective observational case series compared the effects of position on retinal and choroidal structure, finding that intermediate age-related macular degeneration appears to be associated with an increase in choriocapillaris equivalent thickness and with a lack of positional responses that are observed in the choriocapillaris equivalent thickness of normal eyes.

Predictors for the Development of Referral-Warranted Retinopathy of Prematurity in the Telemedicine Approaches to Evaluating Acute-Phase Retinopathy of Prematurity (e-ROP) Study

Abstract Full Text

JAMA Ophthalmol. 2015;133(3):304-311. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2014.5185

This observational cohort study reports that when controlling for very low birth weight and prematurity, the presence of preplus disease, stage 2 retinopathy of prematurity, retinal hemorrhage, and the need for ventilation at time of first study-related eye examination were associated with referral-warranted retinopathy of prematurity.

Association Between Missense Mutations in the BBS2 Gene and Nonsyndromic Retinitis Pigmentosa

JAMA Ophthalmol. 2015;133(3):312-318. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2014.5251

This study shows that BBS2 mutations can cause nonsyndromic retinitis pigmentosa and highlights yet another candidate for this genetically heterogeneous condition.

Perimetry in Young and Neurologically Impaired Children: The Behavioral Visual Field (BEFIE) Screening Test Revisited

Abstract Full Text

JAMA Ophthalmol. 2015;133(3):319-325. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2014.5257

This retrospective study reports that the Behavioral Visual Field Screening Test (BEFIE) test is a valuable tool to detect peripheral visual field defects when standard conventional perimetry cannot be performed in young or neurologically impaired children.

Improvement in Binocular Summation After Strabismus Surgery

Abstract Full Text
free access
JAMA Ophthalmol. 2015;133(3):326-332. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2014.5265

In this prospective study, the authors reported that binocular summation scores improved postoperatively in most patients undergoing strabismus surgery. This occurred most frequently at the lowest contrast level. These findings suggest that improved binocular summation could represent a newly recognized functional benefit from the surgical correction of strabismus. Further studies evaluating the correlation of binocular summation with stereopsis, visual field expansion, and quality of life will be necessary to fully evaluate the role that improved binocular summation has in improving binocularity postoperatively.

Clinical Trial

A 50% vs 30% Dose of Verteporfin (Photodynamic Therapy) for Acute Central Serous Chorioretinopathy: One-Year Results of a Randomized Clinical Trial

Abstract Full Text

JAMA Ophthalmol. 2015;133(3):333-340. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2014.5312

This randomized clinical trial reports that a 50% dose of verteporfin may be more effective at resolving subretinal fluid and fluorescein leakage, and with better visual outcomes, than a 30% dose for acute central serous chorioretinopathy.
