Recent advances in the understanding of dry eye disease (DED) have revealed previously unexplored targets for drug therapy. One of these drugs is diquafosol, a uridine nucleotide analog that is an agonist of the P2Y2 receptor. Several randomized controlled trials have demonstrated that the application of topical diquafosol significantly improves objective(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the use of pars plana needle aspiration of retrolenticular fluid in the immediate management of an acute intraoperative rock-hard eye syndrome (AIRES). SETTING Private practice, Sydney, Australia. DESIGN Retrospective case series. METHODS Data over an 18-month period were collected to evaluate efficacy, complications, and visual(More)
IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is an inflammatory condition of unknown etiology that can cause tumefactive lesions in a number of tissues and organs, including the orbit and ocular adnexa. Diagnostic criteria for IgG4-RD, including pathology and clinical features and pathology, have been recently proposed. This study presents the first case of unilateral(More)
Comparison of macular morphology between femtosecond laser–assisted and traditional cataract surgery After reading the article by Nagy et al. on femtosecond laser–assisted cataract surgery technology, we have significant methodological concerns about the risk for postoperative cystoid macular edema (CME). These render the conclusions drawn by the authors(More)
reports and the fact that the size and surface anatomy of the plica as well as the nasal edge of the plica semilunaris (i.e. the border between the plica semilunaris and the caruncle) display considerable variations, which could potentially affect the accuracy of measurements. Accordingly, findings will have to be confirmed by prospective studies that would(More)
Detachment of a hydrodissection cannula during a phacoemulsification procedure appeared to produce no adverse sequelae during surgery. Day 1 postoperatively, two nonpenetrating hemorrhagic retinal lesions were identified; there was no evidence of posterior capsular perforation. Day 6 postoperatively, the pupil was temporally peaked by a fine vitreous strand(More)
Acute aqueous misdirection syndrome: Pathophysiology and management We appreciate Lau et al. formally describing the syndrome of acute anterior chamber shallowing and increase of intraocular pressure with no choroidal effusion. However, we believe this syndrome has been described under different names, including infusion misdirection syndrome, capsular(More)
