Recurrent Idiopathic Orbital Myositis: Two Case Reports

Pinar EROZ and Mehmet Atila Argin

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 23, 2019

Idiopathic orbital myositis is a subtype of idiopathic orbital inflammatory diseases characterized by inflammation of the extraocular muscles. The diagnosis of the disease is made clinically and radiologically. Clinically characterized by periorbital edema, ptosis, propitosis, diplopia and painful eye movements. The diagnosis is made by observing the enlargement of the involved muscles in the orbital CT. The most common differential diagnosis is thyroid ophthalmopathy. In this study, we presente...

Repeat Visual Field Assessments for Patients with Normal Visual Field Tests at their Referring Optometric Practice

A Alwitry and S Hubbard

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: September 07, 2019

To determine whether a normal visual field assessment at a referring optometric practice is predictive of a normal visual field assessment at the hospital eye service and therefore whether there is any need to repeat it prior to first hospital visit. Data on visual fields of 501 consecutive patients, 1002 eyes/visual field assessments were collected. The positive predictive value of a normal visual field at the patients referring optometrist was 97% for the right eye and 98% for the left eye. Fr...

A Comparison of Superior Visual Field Defect in Single Eyelid Population with and without Compensatory Brow Elevation

Kwan Supachutikul, MD, Vannakorn Pruksakorn, MD and Preamjit Saonanon, MD

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: June 24, 2019

ingle eyelid is a unique characteristic in East and South-East Asian. Narrow palpebral fissure with compensatory elevation of eyebrows is common in this group. This study aims to demonstrate the correlation between superior visual field defect and MRD1 without lifting of the overhanging skin (MRD1w) in single eyelid population....

Refraction Data Survey, Ensemble & Time Series Statistics during Adolescence

Peter R Greene, PhD, Otis S Brown, EE and Ronald M Berger, OD

Article Type: Original Research Article | First Published: April 20, 2019

The objective of this report is to quantify left eye to right eye refractive state differentials resulting from the accumulation of naturally occurring random fluctuations. Clinical SER data from adolescent emmetropic human subjects are measured and analyzed in terms of ensemble and time-series and fluctuations of the left eye , right eye , and left-right differential measurement, N = 20 subj. Results include random fluctuations for left and right eyes of human subjects age 11 to 23 years. Ensem...

Evaluation of Structural Alterations in Eyes Exposed to Blunt Trauma by Anterior Segment and Macula Optic Coherence Tomography

Hasan Aytogan

Article Type: Original Research Article | First Published: April 04, 2019

Approximately nineteen million humans are confronted with monocular blindness and low visual acuity as a result of blunt eye trauma all over the world. Even minor eye injuries may cause considerable morbidity and loss of work. Ay┼če, et al. viewed all of ocular trauma presenting to the Emergency Department for two years and 100 of 203 patients (48%) showed blunt eye trauma in a prospective study. Blunt trauma can lead to many pathologies such as corneal abrasion, subconjunctival hemorrhage, trau...
