Ocular surface squamous neoplasia presents as a spectrum from simple dysplasia to carcinoma in situ to invasive squamous cell carcinoma involving the conjunctiva as well as the cornea. It is a distinct clinical entity, although it has been known by a variety of different names throughout the literature. Most commonly it arises in the limbal region,(More)
BACKGROUND Ocular surface epithelial dysplasia involves a spectrum of diseases ranging from only minor eye irritation to blindness and potentially death. METHODS A case-control study involving 60 patients with ocular surface epithelial dysplasia treated between 1972 and 1991 and 60 age- and sex-matched individuals was conducted to compare relative(More)
OBJECTIVE This study analyzes the results of intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction by contact diode cycloablation (cyclodiode) in cases of refractory glaucoma after penetrating keratoplasty. DESIGN Retrospective noncomparative, interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS Twenty-eight eyes in 28 patients attending the Moorfields Eye Hospital. INTERVENTION(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the incidence and risk factors for hypotony and estimate the risk of sympathetic ophthalmia following diode laser trans-scleral cyclophotocoagulation (TSCPC). DESIGN Retrospective study using data from a private tertiary glaucoma clinic and review of the literature. PARTICIPANTS Seventy eyes of 70 patients with refractory glaucoma(More)
BACKGROUND Ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) encompasses the conditions of simple dysplasia to carcinoma in situ to invasive squamous cell carcinoma. It has a high rate of recurrence after treatment and the potential to metastasize. The present retrospective study was aimed at further defining the characteristics and clinical course of OSSN.

BACKGROUND Trans-scleral cyclophotocoagulation with diode laser has been well documented in the management of neovascular glaucoma. More recently, intravitreal bevacizumab has been increasingly employed to treat neovascular diseases of the eye. This study reports our initial experience with trans-scleral cyclophotocoagulation alone versus the combination of(More)
Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the world. Diagnosis and management of glaucoma is significantly associated with intraocular pressure, but contemporary office-based measurements are not sufficient to discover diurnal changes and spikes, nor do they demonstrate the effect of medication and compliance. Patient-directed(More)
PURPOSE To define rates of recurrence and surgical complications of primary pterygia excision with autoconjunctival grafting when the surgery is performed by consultant ophthalmologists compared with trainee ophthalmologists. METHODS A total of 174 patients with primary pterygia treated by excision and autoconjunctival grafting were included for analysis.(More)
PURPOSE Penetrating keratoplasty for silicone oil keratopathy is associated with high risks and limited visual prognosis. This study examined the outcomes and factors influencing graft failure. METHODS A retrospective, non-comparative, interventional case series of patients attending Moorfields Eye Hospital, London. RESULTS A total of 24 penetrating(More)
