Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 21, 2018

To evaluate the proportion and characteristics of patients diagnosed with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) who do not complete the loading dose of bevacizumab, given as first line agent. Using the electronic medical records of all patients affiliated to the largest health maintenance organization in Israel who received intravitreal injections of bevacizumab between September 2008 and October 2014, we isolated patients aged of 60 years or more treated for neovascular age-relate...

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 21, 2018

A 55-years-old female presented with pain in the right eye for 15 days. She had a history of complicated cataract surgery followed by pars plana vitrectomy, intraocular gas injection and sulcus fixated intraocular lens implantation. On ophthalmologic examination, pupillary capture by intraocular lens, shallow anterior chamber, corneal edema and elevated intraocular pressure despite maximum medical therapy was observed. Intraocular gas induced secondary pupillary block glaucoma diagnosis was made...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 21, 2018

Raised intraocular pressure (IOP) is the principal modifiable risk factor for the development and progression of glaucoma. Glaucoma is defined as progressive optic neuropathy, based on visual field loss and/or optic disc findings, is more likely to be associated with elevated intraocular pressure (IOP), although IOP is not the only risk factor for glaucomatous optic nerve damage. The complex physiology involved in aqueous humor formation and its maintenance indicates its dependence on other syst...

Unusual Treatment Response to Aflibercept, after Ranibizumab Treatment Failure, in Peripheral Exudative Haemorrhagic Retinopathy

Zeyad Al-Moasseb and Konstantinos Balaskas

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 14, 2018

The authors report 79-year-old women with PEHR who had persistent treatment resistance to Ranibizumab, with rapid improvements once switched to Aflibercept. Baseline visual acuity, subjective vision and measurements of anatomical disease were taken using macular optical coherence tomography, wide-field colour, fluorescein and indocyanine-green angiography images. Post-intravitreal injection response was measured using visual acuity, subjective vision and anatomical macular optical coherence tomo...

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: November 10, 2018

This is a case report of an 11-year-old boy complaining with deteriorated vision and with multiple peripheral lesions in his fundus in the setting of gyrate atrophy. Spectral domain optical coherence tomography showed, cystoid macular edema was in his both eyes. Plasma ornithine level was found elevated. According to these data, the patients were diagnosed with gyrate atrophy of the choroid and retina. The patient treated with vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) and an arginine-restricted diet....

Brucellosis is a multisystem infectious disease, which still endemic in Middle East, Mediterranean and South America. Bilateral optic neuritis secondary to the meningeal inflammation is very rare complication of brucellosis. Here we present a 13-year-old male patient with the ocular brucellosis who has optic neuropathy, concluded his treatment and low vision aid for the visual impairment. Brucellosis is a multisystem infectious disease, which appear in miscellaneous clinical manifestation. Vario...

The Unsatisfied Patient after Cataract Surgery Ocular Surface Disease as a Major Contributor!

Adeeb M Rushdi Ubeid

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: November 08, 2018

In the era of advanced technology in managing patients with cataracts, yet a number of patients remain unhappy. We daily face unsatisfied patients despite having 20/20 vision. Many of the ocular symptoms are in the form of ocular irritation, stinging, and blurred vision. Unrecognized dry eye could be a major contributor to these symptoms. Although cataract surgery is an intraocular surgery, it causes microscopic ocular surface damage that could worsen the preexisting ocular surface disease or le...

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: October 12, 2018

Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness worldwide and the most widely used surgical procedure for glaucoma is trabeculectomy, which creates a guarded fistula between the anterior chamber and the sub-conjunctival space. Although the history of surgical management of glaucoma dates to 1856, when Von Graefe introduced iridectomy as a treatment for acute glaucoma; the history of trabeculectomy is relatively short....
