PURPOSE To evaluate the heterogeneity of both the clinical features and genetics of familial exudative vitreoretinopathy (FEVR) in a Northern Irish population. METHODS A retrospective trawl of a secure pediatric database was completed, as well as communication with all Northern Ireland ophthalmologists to identify adult cases. Cases were cross-referenced with a regional genetics database. Data on patient demographics, clinical findings, genetic testing, and patient treatment were collected. RESU...
PURPOSE To compare visual acuity outcomes and loss to follow-up after initiation of treatment for unilateral amblyopia in children from different socioeconomic backgrounds. METHODS Medical records of children diagnosed as having unilateral amblyopia at an initial encounter between 2015 and 2018 were reviewed. Medicaid and private insurance were used as proxies for socioeconomic status (SES). Data points were collected at the patients' initial, follow-up, and final visits. Visual acuity improveme...
A previously healthy 8-month-old female infant presenting with lethargy and bilateral eye redness and cloudiness had bilateral hypopyon uveitis, which persisted despite topical steroids. Cytology of the anterior chamber and cerebrospinal fluid and flow cytometry of cerebrospinal fluid revealed malignant cells consistent with acute monocytic leukemia. Bone marrow aspirates and biopsies showed no evidence of disease. She was treated with systemic and intrathecal chemotherapy, with subsequent remis...
PURPOSE To report the results from a cases series of patients with Peters anomaly and propose management and treatment approaches according to the alterations associated with each case. METHODS The records of 27 patients (32 eyes) clinically diagnosed as having Peters anomaly were analyzed retrospectively. Each patient underwent different treatment modalities (from medical follow-up consultations to penetrating keratoplasty procedures) according to the type of Peters anomaly.1 Results: Of 32 eye...
PURPOSE To establish whether clinical factors were correlated with deviation control in intermittent exotropia. METHODS This retrospective study included 54 patients with intermittent exotropia. The patient's sex, family history, age at first admission, best corrected visual acuity, refractive errors after cycloplegia, angles of ocular deviation at near and distance, and near, distance, and total deviation control were evaluated. Ocular deviation controls were determined according to the Mayo Cl...

PURPOSE To determine the normal range of optic canal diameters in the Turkish pediatric population. METHODS Brain, orbital, and maxillofacial computed tomography examinations were evaluated retrospectively. Children with cranial bone disorders affecting the bone structure of the optic canal were excluded from the study. Oblique axial and oblique sagittal multiplanar reformatted images were created in accordance with the axis of the optic canal on both sides, and measurements were taken from the ...
PURPOSE To determine the best treatment for dissociated vertical deviation (DVD). METHODS The authors investigated the postoperative results of unilateral surgery for DVD in 14 patients when the visual acuity difference between the two eyes did not result in a postoperative dominance switch. All patients underwent bilateral medial rectus recession for congenital esotropia. RESULTS With this unilateral surgical procedure, all patients showed a significant improvement of the DVD in the primary pos...
PURPOSE To report visual and topographic outcomes of pediatric keratoconus with intracorneal ring segments (ICRS) implantation alone or in combination with accelerated corneal cross-linking (A-CXL). METHODS A descriptive, retrospective observational study was performed. Medical records of patients younger than 18 years at Fundacion Oftalmologica Nacional in Bogota, Colombia, were reviewed. Demographic data, follow-up time, preoperative and postoperative uncorrected (UCVA) and best corrected (BCV...
PURPOSE To report the presenting signs of retinoblastoma in a large cohort of patients who underwent orthoptic assessment at presentation. METHODS A retrospective medical chart review was conducted on 131 patients with retinoblastoma who presented consecutively to a single institution during a 6-year period. The main outcome measure was the presenting sign(s) of the disease. RESULTS Of 131 patients with retinoblastoma, 88 presented with unilateral disease and 43 presented with bilateral disease ...
