Retinopathy of prematurity in South Africans at a tertiary hospital: a prospective study
TLDR
The projected occurrence rate of tROP is similar to that found in black population in the Multicentre Cryotherapy for ROP Trial and the data suggest that the screening criterion based on BW can safely be lowered to 1250 g in this population. Expand
Global Retinoblastoma Presentation and Analysis by National Income Level
This cross-sectional analysis reports the retinoblastoma stage at diagnosis across the world during a single year, investigates associations between clinical variables and national income level, andExpand

Travel burden and clinical presentation of retinoblastoma: analysis of 1024 patients from 43 African countries and 518 patients from 40 European countries
TLDR
Fewer than half the expected number of patients with retinoblastoma presented to African referral centres in 2017, suggesting poor awareness or other barriers to access, despite the relatively shorter distance travelled by African patients, they presented with later-stage disease. Expand
Botulinum neurotoxin injections in essential infantile esotropia—a comparative study with surgery in large-angle deviations
TLDR
Botulinum neurotoxin injections to surgery as first-line therapy in large-angle essential infantile esotropia (IE) is a safe and effective alternative in children ≤24 m and with smaller angles of Esotropia ≤60 PD in resource-limited centres. Expand
Cost comparison between botulinum neurotoxin and surgery in the treatment of infantile esotropia in a tertiary public hospital
TLDR
BNT has a cost–benefit in IE and is a viable option in the primary treatment of IE in resource constrained regions and clinical outcomes and economic benefit in smaller angle of esotropia and younger patients are comparable to surgery. Expand

TLDR
A prospective randomised non-inferiority clinical trial testing bevacizumab in a treat and extend method versus the pro re nata method to inform a key area in the literature on the treatment of DMO, i.e. whether a T and E regimen is non- inferior to a PRN regimen in the treatmentof DMO. Expand
