PURPOSE To establish objective lower limits of normal optic nerve (ON) size in children based on high-resolution orbital magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). DESIGN Case-control study of patients with ON hypoplasia vs normal controls. METHODS A neuroradiologist made 4 measurements of each ON at 2 locations (5 mm posterior to the optic disc and just(More)
PURPOSE An association between morning glory disk anomaly (MGDA) and intracranial vascular anomalies including Moyamoya disease has been recognized. We evaluated a series of patients with MGDA to ascertain the frequency of cerebrovascular anomalies. DESIGN Retrospective observational case series. METHODS We reviewed the neurologic histories and(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether measurements obtained by partial coherence interferometry (PCI) correlate well with measurements obtained using immersion ultrasound (US) in children. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, Georgia, USA. DESIGN Evaluation of a diagnostic test or technology. METHODS The charts of(More)
PURPOSE To report the clinical and histopathologic findings associated with congenital fibrovascular pupillary membranes. DESIGN Case series. PARTICIPANTS Seven infants were included, 6 with a unilateral congenital pupillary membrane and 1 with classic persistent fetal vasculature (PFV). METHODS Patients underwent a membranectomy, pupilloplasty, or(More)
BACKGROUND Horizontal strabismus due to a weak rectus muscle can be treated with an augmented Hummelsheim procedure, in which both vertical rectus muscle tendons are split, resected by 4 mm, and reattached to the sclera adjacent to the weak rectus muscle. Compared with vertical rectus transposition, the procedure spares two ciliary vessels and does not(More)
Childhood cataracts have become a leading cause of preventable childhood blindness in many areas of the world. Here we summarize regional focus group discussions from the 4th Annual International Congenital Cataract Symposium on the current situation, challenges, and recommendations for the management of congenital cataracts in sub-Saharan Africa, the(More)
We report 3 cases of bilateral cataract secondary to self-inflicted blunt eye trauma in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). All 3 children hit their foreheads, orbits, or globes repeatedly for long periods of time and developed cataracts. Clinicians must be aware of this phenomenon to diagnose ocular pathology early and to provide adequate(More)
Purpose Quality of life (QOL) studies in JIA-associated uveitis (JIA-U) focus on the ocular exam and global measures of QOL. However, these assessments may not accurately measure the impact of visual impairment (VI) on a child's daily activities. Hence, a child-centered approach is crucial in this assessment. We report on the validity and reliability of a(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to report the confocal microscopic, characteristics of epithelial downgrowth and the clinical utility of serial confocal examinations in the management of epithelial downgrowth. METHODS Retrospective case review of 3 eyes from 3 patients that developed epithelial downgrowth after ocular surgery with penetrating ocular(More)
