BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To report indications, timing, complications, and outcomes of scleral buckle (SB) removal surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS Retrospective observational case series. Eyes that underwent SB removal between 2010 and 2016 with greater than 1 year of follow-up were included. Main outcome measures were post-SB removal complications and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA). RESULTS Fifty eyes that underwent SB removal met the inclusion criteria. Indications include exposed SB (54%),...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of cataract extraction (CE) by phacoemulsification on the vitreomacular interface (VMI) of eyes with preexisting vitreomacular traction (VMT). METHODS: Retrospective, observational case series. Patients with VMT who elected to proceed with CE, before any vitreoretinal intervention, were studied. Eyes with at least a 12-month follow-up period were included. The status of the vitreomacular adhesion at different time points was assessed using spectral-domain optical ...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To evaluate disease characteristics and frequencies of genetic mutations in a cohort of patients with known or suspected retinal dystrophies. PATIENTS AND METHODS A cohort of 37 patients with known or suspected retinal dystrophies received genetic testing with a panel of 31 genes known to result in the development of retinal dystrophies. Disease characteristics identified during chart review were analyzed and related back to their associated genetic mutations in an attem...

PURPOSE: To present the 1-year results of a surgical technique for the sutureless intrascleral fixation of a 3-piece intraocular lens using a 30-gauge needle. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of a consecutive series of 9 eyes of 8 patients who underwent sutureless intrascleral fixation of posterior chamber intraocular lens using a 30-gauge needle was performed. Patients were required to have at least 1 year of follow-up to be included in the analysis. Short-term data were collected 1 month ...

PURPOSE: To report the 1-year outcomes of a novel surgical technique for the fixation of a CZ70BD intraocular lens with Gore-Tex suture using cow-hitch knots. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of 15 patients (13 men and 2 women) who underwent fixation of a posterior chamber intraocular lens with Gore-Tex suture was performed. Short- and long-term outcomes data were collected 1 month and 1 year after surgery, respectively. RESULTS: Fourteen of the 15 patients met inclusion criteria and were i...

A mechanics-based mathematical model of retinal detachment due to the geometric changes of the eye associated with the evolution of myopia is developed. This includes deformation of the retina due to biological growth of the retina, as well as elastic deformation imposed on the retina by the myopic change in shape of the much stiffer choroid and sclera. The problem is formulated as a propagating boundary value problem in the calculus of variations, which yields self-consistent governing equation...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To report the outcomes of topical difluprednate 0.05% use in the closure of full-thickness macular holes. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Retrospective chart review of 4 patients with full-thickness macular holes who received difluprednate drops 4 times daily for a minimum of 12 weeks. Main outcome measures were macular hole status assessed with optical coherence tomography, visual acuity, intraocular pressure, and complications of treatment. RESULTS: All patients had macular hol...
