Abstract Purpose To identify demographic and disease-related characteristics predictive of LTFU status in amblyopia treatment and create a risk model for predicting LTFU status. Design Retrospective cohort study Methods Setting: Single center, ophthalmology department at Boston Children's Hospital (BCH). Patients: 2037 patients treated for amblyopia at BCH between 2010-2014. Observation procedure : LTFU was defined as patients who did not return after initial visit, excluding those who came for ...

It was my privilege to serve as Editor-in-Chief for J AAPOS from 2006 to 2012. During my tenure we made many changes, not all of which were welcome or effective but most of which seemed to improve the experience of authors and our readership. It is worth taking a moment to look back upon those years to reflect on the process and effects of change and to consider how we might undertake further changes for the betterment of our journal, the official Journal of AAPOS.

Abstract Background The effectiveness of amblyopia therapy can be limited by poor adherence. Dichoptic therapies are a new approach, but recent trials have demonstrated difficulty maintaining high adherence over extended periods of at-home treatment. We evaluated the efficacy and adherence of Luminopia One—a dichoptic treatment that applies therapeutic modifications to streaming content chosen by the patient. Methods This single-arm, multicenter prospective pilot study enrolled children aged 4-1...

Traditional therapies to treat amblyopia, such as optical correction or occlusion/penalization of the non-amblyopic eye, are efficacious but are not without limitations such as poor adherence and d...

Variants in multiple tubulin genes have been implicated in neurodevelopmental disorders, including malformations of cortical development (MCD) and congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles (CFEOM). Distinct missense variants in the beta-tubulin encoding genes TUBB3 and TUBB2B cause MCD, CFEOM, or both, suggesting substitution-specific mechanisms. Variants in the alpha tubulin-encoding gene TUBA1A have been associated with MCD, but not with CFEOM. Using exome sequencing (ES) and genome seque...

Reproductive longevity is critical for fertility and impacts healthy ageing in women, yet insights into the underlying biological mechanisms and treatments to preserve it are limited. Here, we identify 290 genetic determinants of ovarian ageing, assessed using normal variation in age at natural menopause (ANM) in ~200,000 women of European ancestry. These common alleles influence clinical extremes of ANM; women in the top 1% of genetic susceptibility have an equivalent risk of premature ovarian ...

Abstract Purpose To report the incidence of symptomatic vertical and torsional diplopia after superior rectus transposition (SRT) for esotropic Duane syndrome and abducens nerve palsy. Methods The medical records of patients with esotropic Duane syndrome or abducens nerve palsy seen at Boston Children’s Hospital (2006-2018) and treated with unilateral SRT with or without augmentation was performed. The primary outcome was incidence of postoperative vertical or torsional diplopia in primary posit...
