JOURNAL ARTICLE
Jonathan Shaver
BACKGROUND: Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are serious vascular abnormalities that rarely affect the eye. However, documented cases of eyelid AVMs have been reported to occur spontaneously or after trauma. Treatment for AVMs, which generally include embolization and resection, can also pose a risk to a patient's life and vision. CASE REPORT: This report describes a 21-year-old man who experienced multiple branch artery occlusions resulting in severe visual field defects after treatment for an eyelid AVM...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
David P Roncone
BACKGROUND: Keratoectasia is a rare but well-known complication after laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). Patients with this condition can have high and irregular astigmatism. When the treatment of the high astigmatic correction cannot be accomplished surgically or when the keratoectasia patient rejects surgical enhancement, optical correction with devices such as soft or rigid gas-permeable contact lenses may be pursued. In fact, toric soft contact lenses are a good first option for fitting postoperative keratoectasia patients...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Stuart P Richer, William Stiles, Kelly Graham-Hoffman, Marc Levin, Dennis Ruskin, James Wrobel, Dong-Wouk Park, Carla Thomas
BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether dietary supplementation with the carotenoid zeaxanthin (Zx) raises macula pigment optical density (MPOD) and has unique visual benefits for patients with early atrophic macular degeneration having visual symptoms but lower-risk National Institute of Health/National Eye Institute/Age-Related Eye Disease Study characteristics. METHODS: This was a 1-year, n = 60 (57 men, 3 women), 4-visit, intention-to-treat, prospective, randomized controlled clinical trial of patients (74...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Balamurali Vasudevan, Kenneth J Ciuffreda
PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to directly measure lenticular thickness and its additivity after 1 and 2 hours of continuous reading at near in myopic and emmetropic young adults. METHODS: Thirty-five subjects consisting of 12 early-onset myopes, 11 late-onset myopes, and 12 emmetropes were tested. Axial lenticular thickness was measured in the right eye using A-scan ultrasonography before and immediately after 1 and 2 hours of continuous reading at near (35 to 40 cm)...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Josephine O Ibironke
BACKGROUND: Microtropia is a small-angle strabismus with a highly developed degree of binocular cooperation. It is a unilateral comitant horizontal deviation less than 5 prism diopters (PD) in the presence of anomalous retinal correspondence (ARC), amblyopia, some motor fusion, and reduced stereoacuity. CASE REPORT: A 7-year-old white girl presented for a second opinion concerning unexplained vision loss in the left eye. Visual acuities were 20/20 in the right eye and 20/200 in the left eye...

COMPARATIVE STUDY

BACKGROUND: The objective of this research is to assess the ocular and muscular response to long-duration reading under different visual and cognitive difficulty levels. METHODS: Thirty-five subjects, with 20/20 vision and without history of ocular pathology or cognitive deficits, participated in the study. Subjects read under different visual and cognitive difficulty levels for 6 (30-minute) conditions. Upper and lower orbicularis oculi, frontalis, and trapezius muscle activities were recorded using surface electromyography (EMG)...

REVIEW
Jimin Lee, Steven Ferrucci
Peripapillary subretinal neovascular membranes (PSRNVM) are most commonly associated with age-related macular degeneration and idiopathic causes in older patients. In younger patients, the condition has been linked to a wide variety of other conditions. As with the more commonly occurring macular form of choroidal neovascular membranes, PSRNVM can also lead to severe vision loss. Therefore, clinicians must take care to avoid overlooking this event to provide appropriate management and treatment. Current knowledge of PSRNVM suggests the importance of regular examinations of the affected eye in both treated and untreated cases to watch for progression and recurrence, which are unpredictable, and also of the fellow eye because there is a high risk of bilateral involvement...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Adam M Carlson, Sarah B Hinkley
BACKGROUND: With the estimated increase in the number of Americans with vision-related disabilities on the horizon, the need for optometrists with expertise in low vision rehabilitation services will increase. State optometric certification in low vision rehabilitation is currently only available in 3 states through affiliations between the state optometric associations and other organizations or government entities. METHODS: A mail survey was conducted among Michigan Optometric Association member optometrists designed to address the current percentage of optometrists who practice low vision rehabilitation as well as the percentage who are low vision certified through the Michigan Optometric Association and to establish future need for additional low vision rehabilitation providers in the state...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Phillip B Brunson, Paul M Mann
BACKGROUND: Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) has undergone several evolutions since it was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Currently, excimer lasers are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat refractive errors with a standard ablation profile, a wavefront-optimized ablation profile, or a wavefront-guided ablation profile. Wavefront-optimized ablation profiles provide a simple method to precompensate for the expected fourth-order spherical aberration and higher-order astigmatism in the average eye...

PURPOSE: Here we document 2 cases of macular schisis-like appearance in high myopia analyzed with spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT). METHODS: In Case 1, a 58-year-old patient with high myopia manifesting a recent onset of decreased vision in the right eye (OD) is presented. In Case 2, a 45-year-old patient with a lifelong history of no light perception and high myopia OD is presented. RESULTS: In Case 1, biomicroscopy found a posterior staphyloma associated with subtle retinal thickening in the patient's right eye...

JOURNAL ARTICLE

PURPOSE: Porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT) is a systemic disease caused by a deficiency of the enzyme uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase, which is the fifth enzyme in the heme biosynthetic pathway. This deficiency prevents porphyrin and its byproducts from producing heme. CASE REPORT: This case report presents a patient with PCT that is further complicated by high iron stores, chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV), and a history of alcoholism. Bilateral, geographic, peripapillary chorioretinal atrophy is evident and shows progression over a significant period despite improving the PCT...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Angeline Hixson, Sherrol Reynolds
BACKGROUND: Vitreoretinal traction syndrome may occur in patients with incomplete posterior vitreous detachment. Although vitreoretinal traction of the macula is well-documented in the literature, the manifestations of peripapillary vitreoretinal traction are rarely discussed. CASE REPORT: A 62-year-old black woman presented for a comprehensive examination. She reported having uncontrolled diabetes and hypertension. Best-corrected visual acuities were 20/30 in the right eye (OD) and 20/25 in the left eye (OS)...

BACKGROUND: Arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (AION) is a disease of the optic nerve head seen in patients over the age of 50 and more commonly over the age of 70. With few exceptions, arteritic AION is caused by giant cell arteritis. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment with corticosteroids are essential for preventing potentially devastating visual loss from this disease. CASE REPORT: A 63-year-old white man presented with the complaints of blurred vision of the right eye and visual field loss of the left eye...
