PURPOSE Occlusive intraocular lens (IOL) implantation is an effective therapeutic option in patients with intractable diplopia, visual confusion, and unsightly leukocoria. However, their use has been restricted by concerns that inability to visualize the retina may prevent the diagnosis of important posterior pole diseases. In this study, transmission(More)
BACKGROUND Iridoschisis is a rare disorder characterized by splitting of the anterior and posterior iris stroma, resulting in disintegrated iris fibrils which float freely in the anterior chamber. We report an exceptional case of bilateral iridoschisis occurring in conjunction with keratoconus and severe allergic eye disease. CASE PRESENTATION A(More)
UNLABELLED We describe a 40-year-old woman with von Hippel-Lindau syndrome, secondary chronic exudative retinal detachment, and white cataract with consequent leukocoria. Because the cataract was contracted and calcified, a black Morcher 85F poly(methyl methacrylate) IOL was implanted in the ciliary sulcus anterior to the lens to prevent posterior capsule(More)
IMPORTANCE Patients with neuromyelitis optica who have aquaporin-4 antibodies are being identified and receiving immunosuppressant treatment earlier and more aggressively as a result of increasing awareness of the importance of preventing relapses responsible for the high morbidity and mortality associated with the disease. To our knowledge, opportunistic(More)
Krohn et al describe a novel photographic technique using near-infrared (NIR) transillumination to detect peripheral anterior choroidal and ciliary body melanomas not visible on slit lamp examination. 1 The described imaging technique uses a broad spectrum background light source to illuminate the fundus and external photography with a 720–1100 nm NIR(More)
We read with great interest the recent article by Lee et al, 1 who described their clinical experience with three patients who underwent primary implantation of Morcher (Stuttgart, Germany) occlusive intraocular lenses (IOLs) across a variety of neuro-ophthalmic indications. We hope to offer some further insight into these clinical observations in the(More)
Intractable diplopia occurs in approximately 0.8% of patients following strabis-mus surgery, with considerable detriment to visual quality of life. Long-term therapeutic occlusion is required to permit functional vision. Black intraocular lens (IOL) implantation is an effective therapeutic option associated with high rates of postoperative satisfaction. 1(More)
