PURPOSE To present 3 cases of tamoxifen-induced foveal cavitation and review previous prospective and cross-sectional studies. DESIGN Observational case series. METHODS Retrospective analysis of patients presenting to a single institution with evidence of tamoxifen-induced maculopathy. RESULTS Three patients presented with pseudocystic foveal(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE When delivered via a single intravitreal injection, ocriplasmin can effect proteolytic resolution of symptomatic vitreomacular adhesion (VMA). The authors describe their initial clinical experience with ocriplasmin at a large academic center. PATIENTS AND METHODS Retrospective review of all patients with symptomatic VMA treated(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the use of microscope mounted spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) to detect changes in retinal anatomy during macular surgery. DESIGN Retrospective, observational case series. PARTICIPANTS We included 25 eyes of 24 consecutive patients who underwent SD-OCT during macular surgery. METHODS A retrospective review(More)
PURPOSE To report the 3-month incidence rates of postoperative suprachoroidal hemorrhage after glaucoma filtration surgeries and to examine the subsequent surgical treatments in these eyes. METHODS This is a retrospective study using the nationally pooled, insurance claim-based MarketScan databases from the years 2007-2011. Patients with records of(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate rates of reoperation and retinal detachment (RD) after macular hole surgery. DESIGN Retrospective cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS Patients in the insurance claim-based MarketScan databases from 2007 through 2013 with a record of macular hole surgery. METHODS Patients with macular hole surgery were identified. Cases of definite(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To assess the incidence and outcomes of infectious endophthalmitis after intravitreal injections of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) agents. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patient records at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute (BPEI) from January 1, 2005, through December 31, 2014, were reviewed. The largest commercial claims(More)
BACKGROUND Neodymium-yttrium-aluminium-garnet (Nd:YAG) laser vitreolysis has been proposed as a treatment modality for symptomatic vitreous floaters. The purpose of this paper is to report two cases of cataracts associated with posterior capsular compromise, induced by Nd:YAG laser vitreolysis for symptomatic vitreous floaters. METHOD Case series.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Visualization remains a critical factor in successful ocular surgery.Here we review new technology that has the potential to allow for safer and more efficient retinal surgery. RECENT FINDINGS Vitreoretinal surgery poses unique visualization challenges such as the need for specialized optical systems and the delicate and microscopic(More)
PURPOSE To assess the effect of air versus fluid tamponade on the intraocular migration of india ink particles through nonsutured transconjunctival 23-gauge sclerotomies in living porcine eyes. METHODS Both eyes (n = 20) underwent 3-port, transconjunctival, 23-gauge vitrectomy. An angled trocar insertion technique was used in all cases. In each animal,(More)
