AIM The purpose of this study is to report a rare case of cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis in a seronegative patient with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) on immunosuppressive therapy. METHODS A seronegative patient with SLE who was on immunosuppressive therapy developed CMV retinitis. The immunosuppressive therapy was tapered, and the patient was given(More)
Sutureless, glueless, scleral fixation of an intraocular lens is a known technique of fixing a lens in the scleral pockets. However, this technique is applied to single-piece and toric lenses instead of 3-piece lenses, allowing the advantage of the use of premium lenses in patients with poor capsular support. Favourable results without complications of(More)
As highlighted in a recent News Feature, Rare incentives (Nature Rev. Drug Discov. 7, 190–191; 2008)1, 2008 saw the 25th anniversary of the US Orphan Drug Act (ODA), which was promulgated in recognition of the economic barriers to developing drugs for rare diseases (defined as those that affect fewer than 200,000 persons in the United States)2. The ODA(More)
Postoperative endophthalmitis is a very devastating complication and every step should be taken to reduce its occurrence. Unattended air conditioning filter systems are often the culprits and regular maintenance of the filters is of paramount importance. Shedders of pathogenic organisms amongst the theater personnel should be identified by regular screening(More)
PURPOSE To assess the short-term safety and efficacy of an intravitreal injection of bevacizumab in a patient with neovascular glaucoma. CASE REPORT Intravitreal bevacizumab injection was given in a patient with neovascular glaucoma and the changes in the visual acuity, intraocular pressure (lOP), iris neovascularisation were noted before injection and(More)
This paper presents geometric algorithms for developing a re-configurable tooling system for fabrication of freeform objects. The proposed method involves a mold block, with n faces, in which the mold cavity is formed by moving a set of discrete pins on each face of the block. The part surfaces are approximated in the mold cavity using the pins from the(More)
We report a rare complication of late posterior subluxation of rollable intraocular lens (IOL) after an uneventful microphacoemulsification cataract surgery. A 60-year-old non-diabetic, non-hypertensive male patient was operated for microphacoemulsification, phaco chop technique for senile cataract in the right eye using 0.9 mm limbal incision which was(More)
Insulin resistance is a characteristic feature of Type 2 diabetes. Insulin resistance has also been implicated in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease. Currently used thiazolidinedione (TZD) insulin sensitizers although effective, have adverse side effects of weight gain, fluid retention and heart failure. Using fat cell-based phenotypic drug(More)
Descemet's membrane detachment (DMD) is an uncommon condition with a wide range of possible etiologies. Probably the commonest cause is a localized detachment occurring after cataract extraction surgery. Descemetopexy gives good anatomic attachment rates and visual outcomes and has become the standard treatment for DMD. However, in cases with failed initial(More)
