OBJECTIVE To identify risk factors for infantile cataracts of unknown etiology. DESIGN Case-control study. PARTICIPANTS Case infants (n = 152) and control infants (n = 4205) enrolled in the National Birth Defects Prevention Study for birth years 2000-2004. METHODS Multivariate analysis was performed exploring associations for risk factors for(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a leading cause of low vision and blindness. We evaluated the feasibility of using a handheld, noncontact digital retinal camera, Pictor, to obtain retinal images in dilated and undilated eyes for DR screening. We also evaluated the accuracy of ophthalmologists with different levels of training/experience in grading(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the longitudinal reproducibility of optical coherence tomography (OCT) measurements in normal and glaucomatous eyes of children. METHODS In this 2-setting prospective study, OCT-3 was used to obtain fast retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular thickness scans. In the first study setting, the normal eyes of healthy children were(More)
PURPOSE To compare Icare ONE tonometry by clinic examiner and parent/guardian to Goldmann applanation in children with known/suspected glaucoma; to evaluate the trend in intraocular pressure (IOP) with 4 repeated measurements using Icare ONE; and to evaluate the feasibility of instructing parents on the use of the Icare ONE device in the clinic setting.

PURPOSE To determine whether digital retinal images obtained from an indirect ophthalmoscopy imaging system (Keeler) can be accurately graded for clinically significant retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) by masked experts. METHODS The medical records of infants screened for ROP who had posterior pole images acquired using the Keeler system during routine(More)
PURPOSE To report the unusual development of bilateral myelinated retinal nerve fibers (MRNF) adjacent to the optic nerve in a child after treatment of idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) with unilateral optic nerve sheath fenestration (ONSF) and to discuss the etiology of acquired MRNF. METHODS The patient's clinical history, including visual(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW The basic procedure of pediatric cataract surgery has not dramatically changed over the past few years. Recent multicenter study results along with technological innovations, however, have increased our understanding and armamentarium of techniques and devices used to improve outcomes. RECENT FINDINGS We review surgical techniques that(More)
PURPOSE To report the ophthalmologic and histologic findings in a series of children with infantile Pompe disease treated with enzyme replacement therapy (ERT). METHODS Records of children with infantile Pompe disease treated with ERT who had at least one complete ophthalmic examination and the ocular histopathology of children with infantile Pompe(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the clinicopathologic features of 2 patients with carcinosarcoma of the orbit. DESIGN Case reports. PARTICIPANTS Two patients with orbital carcinosarcoma were identified. METHODS Retrospective chart review with clinicopathologic correlation and literature review. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Clinical examination, imaging studies, and(More)
PURPOSE Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is an important cause of preventable blindness; barriers to screening necessitate novel approaches. Although trained non-ophthalmologists can accurately grade retinal images for ROP, effective training protocols are not established. This study compares the effectiveness of facilitated versus self-guided training of(More)
