PURPOSE To examine biometric factors that may influence the high incidence of myopia in pre-term children at 12 to 24 months of age. PATIENTS AND METHODS Fifty eyes of 25 patients with myopia and 70 eyes of 35 patients with emmetropia at 12 to 24 months of age were selected from a group of preterm children who had been screened for retinopathy of(More)
PURPOSE While elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) is associated with myopia in adults, its potential influence on the growth of eyes in juveniles without glaucoma is controversial. To address this issue, a possible relation between IOP and refraction in children was sought. METHODS A cross-sectional survey of IOP was conducted in children presenting to(More)
The ocular findings and visual prognosis were reviewed in 24 patients with the Treacher-Collins syndrome who were evaluated in the craniofacial clinic in the Division of Pediatric Ophthalmology at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia between 1980 and 1991. All patients had some abnormality. Vision loss was present in 37% of patients. Amblyopia was present in(More)
PURPOSE To analyze implant infection in patients with porous orbital implants. METHODS A retrospective analysis of 212 patients with one of five types of porous orbital implants (bone-derived hydroxyapatite [HA], coralline HA, synthetic HA, porous polyethylene, and aluminium oxide) was conducted. Reasons for surgery, type of surgery, type of implant, peg(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the visual outcome and associated findings in isoametropic amblyopia due to high hyperopia. METHODS Children with > or = 5 D spherical equivalent hyperopia and < or = 1.5 D anisometropia and < or = 1.5 D cylinder in both eyes were selected. Data were collected on the magnitude of spherical equivalent(More)
The Wright needle is a widely used instrument for insertion of fascia lata or a synthetic material during frontalis suspension surgery; however, difficulties in handling this instrument are frequently encountered by many surgeons. We describe an 18-gauge needle with a 4/0 monofilament polypropylene suture as an alternative to the Wright needle for placement(More)
We prospectively studied the force required to move an extraocular muscle after adjustable suture surgery with and without the perioperative use of hyaluronic acid (Healon). The 15 muscles that received hyaluronic acid averaged 15.0 g of force to move the muscle 2.0 mm which was significantly different than the average force of 36.15 g required for the 13(More)
The cardio-facio-cutaneous (CFC) syndrome is an uncommon multiple congenital anomalies/mental retardation syndrome whose major manifestations are congenital heart defects, relative macrocephaly, stunted growth, ectodermal dysplasia, characteristic facial appearance, and psychomotor developmental delay. All described cases were sporadic and cytogenetically(More)
PURPOSE To compare the macular thickness and volume of highly myopic children with healthy controls, using third generation optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS OCT was performed on highly myopic (cycloplegic spherical equivalent refraction > -6.00 diopters [D]) children aged 3 to 7 years old and healthy controls (spherical equivalent refraction(More)
This case report is about a 26-year-old patient complaining of painful diplopia shortly after a dental procedure. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a mass lesion in the cavernous sinus that responded well to oral corticosteroids. The possible side effect of the intraoral local anaesthetic injection used during the dental procedure was questioned.
