PURPOSE: To perform quantitative analysis of the most commonly used brow-suspension configurations. METHODS: The inflection positions for Fox pentagon and Crawford triangle configurations were marked on 49 healthy volunteers (male and female) and photographs taken in 3 states: "normal," "closed," and "raised." The skin marks were measured vectorially with respect to the medial canthus, and displacement changes were evaluated for "normal-to-closed" ("blinking") and from "closed-to-raised" ("eye-opening") states...

PURPOSE: To investigate the differences in the optical density ratios between chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) and polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) obtained from subretinal fluid (SRF) analyses to identify the diagnostic role of optical density ratios. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. METHODS: Patients with acute CSC (n = 36), chronic CSC (n = 38), and PCV (n = 32) were included in the study. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD OCT) images of SRF were analyzed...

AIMS: To assess the efficacy of securing conjunctival autograft (CAG) without glue or sutures, using the patient's own blood at the surgical site, and to compare it with the current accepted standard of using fibrin glue for graft adherence, in pterygium surgery. METHODS: A single-centre, prospective, randomised controlled trial was carried out in 200 eyes of patients with primary pterygia who were advised pterygium excision with CAG. Enrolled participants were assigned to Group I or II by randomisation...

PURPOSE: To compare the anti-inflammatory efficacy of ketorolac of tromethamine 0.4% and nepafenac 0.1% eye drops for prophylaxis of cystoid macular oedema (CME) after small-incision cataract extraction. METHODS: Patients were assigned randomly to three groups. Group 1 patients received a topical artificial tear substitute (placebo); group 2 received ketorolac tromethamine 0.4% (Acular LS, Allergan) and group 3 received nepafenac 0.1% (Nevanac, Alcon). The incidence and severity of CME were evaluated by retinal foveal thickness on optical coherence tomography (OCT) after 1, 4 and 12 weeks...

PURPOSE: To critically assess the evidence base regarding outcomes following cataract surgery in uveitic cases. DESIGN: Systematic evidence-based review and meta-analysis. METHODS: A comprehensive search query was performed on MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINHAL, and CENTRAL databases. Relevant publications were identified by reviewing query results and reference list searches. RESULTS: A total of 89 articles met eligibility criteria...

OBJECTIVE: AR-13324 is a small-molecule inhibitor of Rho kinase and a norepinephrine transporter. The objective of this 28-day study was to evaluate the ocular hypotensive efficacy and safety of AR-13324 ophthalmic solution compared with a positive control, latanoprost ophthalmic solution, in patients with open-angle glaucoma (OAG) or ocular hypertension (OHT). DESIGN: Double-masked, randomized study in 22 private practice ophthalmology clinics. PARTICIPANTS: Participants were required to be adults with a diagnosis of OAG or OHT with unmedicated intraocular pressure (IOP) in the range of 22 to 36 mmHg...
