Acute corneal hydrops (CH) occurs when there is a tear in descemets membrane causing rolling of its edges, creating a gap through which aqueous from anterior chamber (AC) percolates into corneal stroma. Acute CH occurs in approximately 2.5-3% of eyes with KC. Conventional therapy is patching or bandage contact lens application with topical cycloplegics and topical hypertonic sodium chloride. Here, we report a case of 9-year-old boy with bilateral keratoconus with left eye acute hydrops who was successfully treated with pneumodesmetopexy with perflouropropane (C3F8)...

A 23-year male with complaint of diminution of vision in left eye was referred to us as a suspect case of inflammatory choroidal mass/melanoma. Examination revealed a total retinal detachment with a reddish brown lesion in the superior hemi-fundus. B-scan ultrasonography demonstrated the 'mass' to be intra-retinal without choroidal involvement. A diagnosis of haemorrhagic intraretinal macrocyst (HIM) was made. We report this case to highlight the importance of correctly diagnosing an HIM and utilizing ultrasound to rule out choroidal pathologies, especially melanoma...

Diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis (DUSN) is a subacute outer retinal inflammation due to the presence of a subretinal worm. The worm is identifiable in only 30% of the cases. The identification of the worm and laser photocoagulation of the worm remains the mainstay of treatment. Here, we describe a case of DUSN with a subretinal worm in the macula which was captured on Optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans and treated with laser photoooagulation.

True exfoliation is a delamination of the superficial layer of anterior lens capsule, which appears as a transparent membrane in the anterior chamber. It is a rare occurrence, and most of the reported cases have been associated with a history of exposure to excessive heat, ocular trauma, or inflammation. We report pre- and post-operative anterior segment observations, surgical approach and histopathology of the excised lens capsule in a patient who presented with bilateral true exfoliation without any contributory history...

We report a case of recurrence of herpes simplex virus (HSV) keratouveitis following the intravitreal injection of bevacizumab for macular edema secondary to central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) in a previously adequately treated patient of herpetic keratouveitis. A 47-year-old man with the previous history of HSV keratouveitis was administered 2 doses of intravitreal bevacizumab in the right eye for CRVO, at an interval of 4 weeks. Following the second dose, the patient developed decreased vision, corneal edema, and anterior segment inflammation...

The purpose of the study is to report an unusual case of encapsulated iron intraocular foreign body (IOFB) of long duration presenting with cystoid macular edema (CME) and normal full-field electroretinogram (ERG). A 28-year-old male presented with a history of metal injury 5 years back and subsequent visual loss in the left eye for 3 months. Fundus examination of the left eye showed an encapsulated cyst-like structure inferior to the disc with the surrounding pigmentary changes and CME. B-scan ultrasonography and computed tomography scan confirmed metallic IOFB...

Descemet membrane detachment (DMD) is a complication of a variety of eye procedures that can result in severe visual loss. We report a new case of the condition, in a highly myopic patient that had undergone cataract surgery, and presented a macular hemorrhage during the intervention. DMD was successfully treated with a combined technique of intracameral gas injection and transcorneal suturing. Following resolution of this complication, intraocular lens opacification was observed.

Choroidal tuberculoma is a solitary elevated choroidal mass-like lesion regarded often characteristic of intraocular tuberculosis. Serial swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) is a very important tool in monitoring the course of choroidal tuberculoma and allows in early detection of complications such as choroidal neovascular membrane (CNVM). We describe a 26-year-old young Indian female, who presented with a solitary choroidal mass lesion in the left eye. Based on positive Mantoux test, biopsy of cervical lymph nodes showing acid-fast bacilli and radiographic findings, a diagnosis of choroidal tuberculoma was made...

Best vitelliform macular dystrophy (VMD) is an autosomal dominant macular dystrophy caused by heterozygous mutations in the bestrophin1 gene. Patients with this condition typically have an abnormal electrooculogram. We report a case of a 16-year-old male who presented with gradual progressive vision loss in the right eye. Ophthalmic assessment included funduscopy, optical coherence tomography (OCT), fluorescein angiography, electro-oculography, electroretinography, and genetic testing. Visual acuity was 20/500 and 20/20 in the right and left eyes, respectively...

BACKGROUND: To analyze changes over a 3-year period in ganglion cell complex (GCC) thickness in individuals with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (Optovue, Fremont, CA, USA). METHODS: Thirty-seven individuals from "Friends for Life Conference" with T1DM and a 3-year history of GCC thickness measurements were included in the study. Data analysis using SPSS 22 and Excel StatPlus was completed to note the subgroups that had a significant change...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to compare the clinical efficacy of a single intraoperative posterior sub-Tenon's capsule triamcinolone acetonide injection with postoperative topical steroids in controlling intraocular inflammation in uncomplicated pediatric cataract surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A prospective comparative study of children (<13 years of age) undergoing cataract surgery in a tertiary care eye center in South India. Preoperative evaluation was similar in both groups...

AIM: This study aims to evaluate the prognostic factors of different optical coherence tomography (OCT) parameters as well as the tamponade used in surgery, on postoperative anatomical and functional success. METHODS: Twenty-nine eyes of 27 patients were included in this study. A three-port 23-gauge pars plana vitrectomy was performed on all eyes with peeling of the internal limiting membrane by visualization with brilliant blue dye by the same surgeon (E.U). Apical diameter (AD), base diameter (BD), and height (H) were manually measured by the same retina specialist (E...

AIM: This study aimed to compare the central corneal thickness (CCT) measurements using Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and TMS-5 topographer with that taken with the gold standard digital Ultrasonic pachymeter (USP). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 61 subjects (122 eyes) were prospectively and consecutively studied in a period from June 2016 to June 2017 at Sudan Eye Centre (SEC), Khartoum, Sudan. Besides the visual and refractive data, measurements of CCT were taken using OCT, TMS-5 and USP...

BACKGROUND: Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is emerging as an important cause of childhood blindness in middle-income countries such as India. Although blindness can be prevented in most cases with timely screening and treatment, certain ocular comorbidities can lead to visual impairment. We evaluated and compared 1-year visual, refractive, and structural outcomes and comorbidities in three subsets of preterm infants enrolled for screening of ROP. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Preterm children enrolled in the hospital's ROP screening program and with diagnosis of no ROP, mild ROP, or severe ROP were followed at 1 year of age to evaluate and compare visual, refractive, and structural outcomes as well as the presence of ocular comorbidities...

INTRODUCTION: Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is a proper type of refractive surgery used to remodel corneal stroma to compensate refractive errors. Corneal haze was reported as one of the side effects in several studies. This study was conducted for investigation of the effect of preventive effect of Vitamin C on eyelid edema, corneal haze, corneal epithelial healing, mitigation of pain, and epiphora. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study has been performed as a double-blind clinical trial on 51 patients who underwent PRK surgery...
