BACKGROUND Intermittent exotropia (IXT) is the most common form of exotropia in children. In addition to cosmetic effects and loss of stereoscopic function, IXT may negatively impact the psychological well-being of children and their parents. The purpose of this study was to assess the patient-reported outcomes of Chinese children with IXT before and after strabismus surgery. METHODS The records of children with IXT who underwent strabismus surgery at the Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center of Sun Yat-s...

BACKGROUND With the rapid development of intraocular collamer lens (ICL) operation, it is foreseeable that we will encounter a large number of glaucoma patients with ICL implantation history. However, our current understanding of the treatment of glaucoma patients with ICL is limited. Hence we report a rare case of refractory glaucoma after intraocular collamer lens and intraocular lens implantation in a patient who underwent unsuccessful transscleral cyclophotocoagulation, which led to intraocu...

Background null Micropulse transscleral cyclophotocoagulation (MP-CPC) is a technique that has been approved in recent years to treat glaucoma. MP-CPC causes anterior chamber inflammation; a relationship with reduced intraocular pressure (IOP) has not been reported. Therefore, we analyzed the correlation between IOP and anterior chamber aqueous flare after MP-CPC. null Methods null This retrospective study included 37 eyes of 37 patients who underwent MP-CPC between November 2018 and October 202...

BACKGROUND Visual fixation may be affected in amblyopic patients and, moreover, its stability may be associated with the effects of amblyopic treatments on visual performance in patients with strabismus. Therefore, fixation stability is a relevant biomarker that might predict the recurrence of amblyopia after a therapeutic intervention. Microperimetric biofeedback fixation training (BFT) can stabilize visual fixation in adult patients with central vision loss. It was the purpose of the present s...

BACKGROUND Outcomes among hospitalized patients with severe vision impairment or blindness have not been extensively explored. This study sought to determine clinical and resource utilization outcomes in patients with severe vision impairment/blindness (SVI/B). Because obesity is very common among those who are hospitalized, we also sought to understand its impact among patients with SVI/B. METHODS We conducted a retrospective study using the National Inpatient Sample for the year 2017; hospital...

Background null Glaucomatous eyes often show strong intraocular pressure (IOP) fluctuations and individual measurements at different time points are necessary for personalized therapy. To survey IOP variations 48-hours diurnal and nocturnal IOP measurements were performed on two consecutive days. Aims of this study were to investigate the short-term repeatability of 48-hours measurements within one patient's IOP profile and long-term repeatability between two separate IOP profiles of the same pa...

BACKGROUND To evaluate microstructural changes in the meibomian glands (MGs) in patients with active and inactive Graves' orbitopathy (GO), using in vivo confocal microscopy (IVCM), and to investigate the correlations between clinical and confocal findings. METHODS Forty patients (80 eyes) with GO (34 eyes with active GO, 46 eyes with inactive GO), and 31 age- and sex-matched control participants (62 eyes) were enrolled consecutively. A researcher recorded the clinical activity score (CAS) for e...
BACKGROUND Diabetic retinopathy is the most common microvascular complication of diabetes; however, early changes in retinal microvessels are difficult to detect clinically, and a patient's vision may have begun to deteriorate by the time a problem is identified. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is an innovative tool for observing capillaries in vivo. The aim of this study was to analyze retinal vessel density and thickness changes in patients with diabetes. METHODS This was a ret...
BACKGROUND: During the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) epidemic, due to the traffic blockade and the shortage of medical resources, more and more premature infants could not receive timely and effective ROP screening, which delayed treatment and even caused children blindness null Therefore, how to carry out ROP screening safely and effectively during the epidemic was very important and urgent null This study aimed to evaluate the safety and feasibility of ROP screening assisted by telemedic...
Background null We report a case of chronic retinal necrosis (CRN) combined with cytomegalovirus (CMV) corneal endotheliitis. null Case presentation null An 80-year old man was diagnosed with CRN that developed after tube shunt surgery with vitrectomy for secondary glaucoma associated with CMV corneal endotheliitis. After the use of oral valganciclovir and panretinal photocoagulation, the retinal lesion resolved rapidly and he has maintained visual acuity better than before the onset of CRN. nul...
