This case-control study investigates the effect of pilocarpine on the structure of the Schlemm canal in vivo in healthy eyes and eyes with glaucoma.
This cross-sectional study evaluates the use of in vivo confocal microscopy to monitor patients with familial amyloid polyneuropathy through measurement of corneal nerve fiber length.
This case series characterizes the clinical characteristics and course of patients with hypotrichosis with juvenile macular dystrophy due to biallelic mutations in the CDH3 gene, including OCT and macular electrophysiologic findings.
This study uses Kaiser Permanente administrative data to assess the predictive value of ICD-9 codes for identifying ocular inflammatory diseases.

This study investigates correlations between clinical diagnoses of conjunctivitis made at an academic medical center and Tweets related to the disease or Google searches for conjunctivitis keywords.
This study evaluates the diagnostic performance of a myopic normative database for detection of retinal nerve fiber layer abnormalities in eyes with high myopia.
This study evaluates the validity of the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) detailed and simple age-related macular disease (AMD) severity scales by comparing rates of development of late AMD between AREDS and AREDS2 participants.
This study characterizes ocular and systemic findings in 3 consanguineous siblings homozygous for a TRNT1 mutation.
This study examines how often existing clinical studies of minimally invasive glaucoma surgical devices registered on ClinicalTrials.gov measure patient-centric outcomes that patients value directly.
This cross-sectional study compares measures of central corneal thickness in patients with keratoconus and normal corneas using in vivo confocal microscopy, ultrasonic pachymetry, and Scheimpflug topography.
This study of healthy volunteers investigates whether the cross-shaped fixation target in Spectralis spectral-domain OCT produces a cross-shaped increase in macular autofluorescence on subsequent imaging.
A woman in her 50s with an unremarkable medical history noticed a gradually enlarging, white-brown, circular lesion on her right iris over the past several years but denied visual changes. Slitlamp examination of the anterior segment showed a 2 mm × 2 mm circular iris lesion at the inferotemporal border of the iris with a fluid-debris level. What would you do next?
An otherwise healthy woman in her 50s presented with blurry vision in both eyes after a routine eye examination with dilation 5 days earlier. The pupils were middilated and poorly reactive, and the lenses were displaced into the anterior chambers without any lenticular zonules visible. What would you do next?
A man in his 40s who had previously undergone several treatments for diabetic macular edema without improving visual acuity past 20/70 OD had a fluocinolone acetonide intravitreal implant injected; soon after, the implant was seen in the middle of the vitreous cavity in a vertical orientation and in the visual axis. What would you do next?
A 2-year-old African American boy with leukocoria in his left eye noted during a routine well-child visit was unable to read the distance chart, had an APD and a white-yellow mass in the macula OS. What would you do next?
This study compares the use of lower- vs higher-cost antivascular endothelial growth factor drugs prescribed for treatment of retinal vascular diseases in the Medicare population.
This case report describes a patient with a retinal vascular complex that most likely represents a developmental abnormality of the retinal vasculature, consistent with the role of von Hippel-Lindau disease in retinal vascular development.
This case report describes a woman in her 30s with known von Hippel-Lindau disease who had spontaneous devascularization and detachment of an optic nerve hemangioblastoma.
This case report describes an aphakic young child with glaucoma associated with infantile cataract surgery and a previously functioning nonvalved glaucoma drainage device who presented with sudden-onset pain and increased eye pressure.
This case report describes a man in his 20s with blurry vision in his right eye who had a macular lesian on fluorescein angiography.
This case report describes woman in her late 70s with decreased visual acuity in the right eye, which on imaging showed leakage at the level of the inner retina due to an intraretinal vascular complex and, separately, choroidal neovascularization under the retinal pigment epithelium.
