AIMS To compare the degree of conjunctival autograft inflammation, subconjunctival haemorrhage (SCH) and graft stability following the use of sutures or fibrin glue (FG) during pterygium surgery. METHODS Prospective, observer masked, clinical trial. 40 eyes of 40 patients undergoing primary pterygium surgery with conjunctival autograft were allocated into(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the incidence of endophthalmitis after intravitreal injection with and without topical postinjection antibiotic prophylaxis. DESIGN Retrospective case-control study. PARTICIPANTS All patients treated with intravitreal injection of ranibizumab, bevacizumab, or aflibercept for a variety of retinal vascular diseases at a single, large(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To investigate outcomes of contemporary surgical techniques for repair of rhegmatogenous retinal detachments (RRD) associated with giant retinal tears (GRT). PATIENTS AND METHODS Retrospective, consecutive case series including 58 eyes of 58 patients. Mean age was 52 years (range: 16 to 83 years). All patients underwent 23-gauge(More)
PURPOSE To better characterize a novel spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) presentation, termed paracentral acute middle maculopathy, to describe this finding in patients with nonischemic central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO), and to support a proposed pathogenesis of intermediate and deep retinal capillary ischemia. DESIGN Retrospective(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of prophylactic topical antibiotics on bacterial resistance patterns in endophthalmitis following intravitreal injection of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) medications. In this retrospective case–control study, billing records and an infection log were used to identify all cases of(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To report the effect of a "no-talking" policy during intravitreal injection (IVI) on post-injection endophthalmitis. PATIENTS AND METHODS Retrospective, comparative, consecutive case series of patients receiving IVI between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012. A 24-month "usual care" period was compared to a 24-month no-talking(More)
PURPOSE To compare infectious organisms and visual outcomes of endophthalmitis after intravitreal injection (IVI) with endophthalmitis after pars plana vitrectomy (PPV). METHODS Retrospective, comparative, consecutive case series of patients diagnosed with presumed infectious endophthalmitis after IVI of an anti-vascular endothelial growth factor(More)
The use of femtosecond laser during cataract surgery is increasing, as it may potentially improve accuracy, safety and refractive outcomes. However, posterior capsule rupture with retained lens material can occur, necessitating vitreoretinal intervention. The authors report the first videographically documented case of removal of retained lens material(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the development of adult-onset exposure keratitis in patients having undergone childhood ptosis repair with frontalis sling surgery (FSS). STUDY DESIGN Retrospective, noncomparative case series. PARTICIPANTS Seven patients having received childhood FSS who were referred to us as adults with a complaint of ocular dryness that did not(More)
