Patient-reported outcome measures such as the Pediatric Eye Questionnaire (PedEyeQ) are increasingly recognized as important in healthcare assessment. Defining normal PedEyeQ thresholds would allow classification of individual children as having reduced versus normal domain scores. We prospectively enrolled visually normal children (aged 0-17 years; n = 310) to calculate normal PedEyeQ domain thresholds. In addition, 48 children with bilateral visual impairment (VI; best-eye acuity worse than 20...

Trichophyton tonsurans is a fungal species that frequently causes tinea capitis (ringworm), a skin infection found in children. We report a case of unilateral blepharoconjunctivitis due to tinea capitis in a previously healthy 8-year-old boy. Although no case of blepharitis or follicular conjunctivitis due to T. tonsurans has been previously reported, the findings are consistent with other rare causes of ringworm blepharitis. Emerging or chronic fungal blepharitis should be considered in the dif...

We present the first case of rapid onset high myopia in early childhood as the presenting feature of Loeys-Dietz syndrome. The patient progressed from a normal degree of hyperopia (+2 diopter sphere [DS]) at 18 months of age to high myopia (−10 DS) 9 months later. Subsequent genetic testing revealed both her brothers and her father to carry the same TGFB3 pathogenic variant. This case aims to highlight the importance of considering systemic conditions in children with high myopia.

IgG4-related disease is a chronic fibroinflammatory disorder that is becoming increasingly recognized in the pediatric population. The orbit is one of the most commonly affected sites. We present the youngest case of IgG4-related ophthalmic disease in the literature, with an immunodeficiency phenotype associated with a homozygous IRAK-4 variant gene. We also review the clinical and histological features in children with IgG4-related ophthalmic disease. In addition to the young age of presentatio...

A 10-year-old girl initially diagnosed with functional visual loss was later diagnosed with progressive optic atrophy. Directed questioning at 13 years of age revealed difficulty hearing that had not been noted by the parents. Whole exome sequencing and subsequent metabolic testing confirmed biotinidase deficiency. Although biotinidase deficiency classically manifests in early childhood with multiple manifestations, such as seizures and failure to thrive, a delayed-onset form can present primari...
A 15-year-old boy with a history of autism spectrum disorder presented with bilateral progressive blurry vision and nyctalopia. Initial examinations, including optical coherence tomography scans of the macula and optic nerve, were within normal limits. Subsequent examination revealed trace pallor of the right optic nerve. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain demonstrated diffuse thickening of calvarial bone with bilateral optic nerve compression. Laboratory evaluation was notable for profound...

Abstract null null Purpose null To report a consolidated management protocol for patients with spasm of near reflex (SNR), including classification of cases as mild, moderate, and severe based on treatment outcomes. null null null Methods null Patients with SNR treated at a single institution between August 2016 and November 2018 were included. Management of SNR included modified optical fogging, vision therapy, and pharmacological intervention (cyclopentolate eye drops and, if required, atropin...

Abstract null null Purpose null To explore the differences in workload between pediatric and adult ophthalmology encounters in the private clinics of an academic medical center. null null null Methods null Complete encounters from four different subspecialties were analysed: pediatric ophthalmology, pediatric ophthalmology/neuroophthalmology, anterior segment, and retina. Five parameters were studied: time waiting for assistant, time with assistant, time waiting for physician, time with physicia...
