Mark Dp Willcox
This article summarises research undertaken since 1993 in the Willcox laboratory at the University of New South Wales, Sydney on the tear film, its interactions with contact lenses, and the use of tears as a source of biomarkers for ocular and non-ocular diseases. The proteome, lipidome and glycome of tears all contribute to important aspects of the tear film, including its structure, its ability to defend the ocular surface against microbes and to help heal ocular surface injuries. The tear film interacts with contact lenses in vivo and interactions between tears and lenses can affect the biocompatibility of lenses, and may be important in mediating discomfort responses during lens wear...

BACKGROUND: Currently, no specific collaborative care pathway exists that distinguishes open angle glaucoma from narrow angle or angle closure disease. This study evaluates a newly developed referral and collaborative care pathway specifically for patients with angle closure spectrum disease. METHODS: The medical records of consecutive patients referred to the Centre for Eye Health for glaucoma assessment were examined, six months before (Pre Suite) and after (Post Suite) the introduction of a novel referral pathway for anterior chamber angle assessment (Angle Suite)...

BACKGROUND: Adequate diagnosis of acute anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (AION) is challenging to achieve with traditional medical imaging approaches. The aim of this study was to evaluate the detection capacity of diffusion tensor imaging for abnormalities of the optic nerve in acute AION patients. METHODS: Diffusion tensor imaging data were collected from 31 patients with acute AION and 20 healthy subjects. The mean fractional anisotropy and apparent diffusion co-efficient subsequently were evaluated across all subjects...

Ferial M Zeried, Doa'a A Alnehmi, Uchechukwu L Osuagwu
BACKGROUND: To assess the general knowledge and attitude of refractive error correction methods among female Saudi university students. METHODS: One thousand, one hundred and sixty-five female university students, between 17 and 32 years of age were randomly interviewed using self-administered questionnaires with open and closed-ended questions. The questions collected information on demographics (gender, age, educational status, college of study, and occupation), addressed general knowledge/perception of the difference between the professions of ophthalmology and optometry, and attitudes toward spectacle, contact lens (CL) usage, including coloured prescription CLs, and refractive surgery for correcting refractive errors...

BACKGROUND: This study sought to evaluate pigment epithelial-derived factor (PEDF) levels in lens anterior capsule material taken during cataract surgery from patients with senile cataract with pseudoexfoliation. METHODS: The study included 90 eyes of 86 patients who were diagnosed with, and underwent surgery for, cataracts. Sixty of the eyes included in the study had senile cataract. Thirty eyes of 30 young patients with other forms of cataract were included as a control group...

REVIEW
Tanya Kowalski, Heather G Mack
Tumour necrosis factor alpha inhibitors are a relatively recent development and are becoming increasingly common in the management of many chronic inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, ankylosing spondylitis and juvenile idiopathic arthritis. However, their ocular side effect profile is incomplete and poorly recognised, with mostly anecdotal cases reported in the literature. In this report we review the literature regarding ocular side effects associated with tumour necrosis factor alpha blockade...

BACKGROUND: Dry eye disease is a disorder of the tear film. In this study, the effect of Viola odorata L. oily extract was examined for the treatment of patients suffering from dry eye disease. METHODS: A randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was designed. During the trial, Schirmer's test, tear breakup time, Oxford staining and the Ocular Surface Disease Index were assessed. Overall, 105 patients with dry eye symptoms between the ages of 18 and 60 years were allocated to the violet-almond oil, almond oil and placebo (1% w/v hydroxypropyl methylcellulose solution) groups...

Lawrence W Hirst, Jane Smith
BACKGROUND: It was the author's (LWH) observation that pterygium was frequently misdiagnosed by general practitioners that led to this study. The aim was to identify the rate of misdiagnosis of pterygium by optometrists and general practitioners based upon assessing referral accuracy to a single ophthalmologist (LWH). METHODS: This study involved a prospective case series from 25 March 2015 to 18 December 2018 in a tertiary referral practice specialising in pterygium...

BACKGROUND: Motivators and deterrents for seeking eye care in a Canadian setting were sought using a qualitative study. Provincial deregulation of eyewear dispensing in 2010 allows consumers to order eyewear without an optical prescription, thus eliminating a potential motivator for obtaining an eye examination. METHODS: Convenience sampling was used to obtain 25 members of the public who contributed to one of seven focus groups that were facilitated, audiotaped, anonymised and transcribed...

BACKGROUND: Photophobia is a common sequela of traumatic brain injury (TBI). Diagnostic tools for this debilitating condition are lacking. This investigation sought to determine whether masked observers can distinguish subjects with TBI-associated photophobia from matched controls based on video recordings of their ocular responses to light stimulation. METHODS: Cohorts of students (n = 20), photophobic TBI subjects (n = 28) and their matched control subjects (n = 12) were recruited...

REVIEW
Katia A Maccora, Shivanand Sheth, Jonathan B Ruddle
Optical coherence tomography is a non-invasive ocular imaging technique that is frequently used in the diagnosis and monitoring of optic nerve or retinal disease. Advances in optical coherence tomography speed and image processing capability allow increased use of the modality in clinical practice, especially in younger children. This review outlines the challenges involved in imaging children, highlights the technological progress, the importance of acquiring normative data and, finally, focuses on the clinical applicability of optical coherence tomography in our paediatric population with various ocular conditions...
