RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
D Harris, S J MacRow-Hill
BACKGROUND: Many patients with dyslexia report distortion to text when they are reading. After a successful pilot trial of an improvement in reading rate using ChromaGen haploscopic filters in comparison with the Intuitive Colorimeter, a full-scale, randomized, cross-over, double-masked, placebo-based trial was undertaken. METHOD: The Wilkins rate of reading test was used to produce a baseline score, against which scores with ChromaGen lenses, placebo lenses, and a control were compared...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
A G Lee, A M Perez
BACKGROUND: The authors wish to alert optometrists that an increased awareness of peripheral visual field is possible in selected patients with complete homonymous hemianopsia through the use of ground-in sectorial prisms. METHOD: A case series of nine patients prospectively completed activities of daily living (ADL) questionnaires before and after the use of sectorial prism spectacles for the treatment of complete homonymous hemianopsias. RESULTS: Of the nine enrolled patients, seven reported subjective quantitative improvement in ADL scores on questionnaire responses and two patients did not report improvement...

REVIEW
C S Steinberg
As e-mail becomes an everyday part of more people's lives--and an important part of the way business is done--optometrists are naturally beginning to use it with patients. However, e-mail communication with patients creates a new set of potential dangers that doctors must consider: What defines the doctor-patient relationship? Should diagnoses be made and delivered via e-mail? How can privacy and confidentiality be maintained? Can marketing be done tastefully via e-mail? This author addresses each of these issues from a medico-legal perspective and offers advice on professional, ethical ways to communicate with patients via e-mail...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
G Steele, R Peters
BACKGROUND: Persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (PHPV) is a congenital disorder that manifests a range of ocular anomalies, including leukocoria, microphthalmia, cataract, and a retrolental fibrovascular membrane. In general, the prognosis for visual acuity with PHPV has been poor. A recent report on six patients who have myopia associated with PHPV showed that these patients were not microphthalmic, did not manifest leukocoria, and showed a mean visual acuity at final followup of 20/160...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
B A Teitelbaum
BACKGROUND: Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) for the treatment of coronary artery disease has increased in frequency as technological advances have made the procedure more effective and cost-efficient. In spite of the number of procedures that have been performed, ocular complications have rarely been reported. CASE REPORT: A case of asymptomatic unilateral microembolic retinopathy one month after PTCA is presented. Embolic events to the retinal circulation and their relationship to invasive cardiac procedures is discussed...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
M F Flynn, D Bohnert
BACKGROUND: Several ophthalmic conditions manifest a flecked retina. Developing an understanding of their clinical presentations will enable the practitioner to most appropriately manage these conditions. CASE REPORT: A 27-year-old Middle Eastern woman manifested flecked retinas and nyctalopia. She had been given a diagnosis of retinitis punctata albescens, an inherited, progressive, night blindness; however, the medical history and clinical findings were not consistent with this disorder...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
S E Robison, S S Block, J D Boudreaux, R J Flora
BACKGROUND: The primary purpose of this study was to investigate hand-eye dominance in a population with mental handicaps and how the distribution compared with the general population. In addition, this study investigated the correlation between two methods of hand-eye dominance testing. METHODS: Two methods were used to determine eye dominance: the hole-in-the-hand method and the eye dominance wand. Hand dominance was determined by the subject's choice of accepting hand...
