Primary B-cell mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma of the iris is rare. The largest published series of 14 iris lymphomas included 3 such lymphomas.1 Thus, data concerning the effectiveness of treatment of these tumors are limited. External radiotherapy (the main treatment), resection, and systemic chemotherapy can cause substantial morbidity. Rituximab ...

Almost all cataract surgical procedures rely on phacoemulsification, which requires favorable lens visibility. Visibility can be negatively affected by various ocular pathologies including dense vitreous hemorrhage. When the microscope light source reflects off the ocular fundus, the lens is transilluminated. In the presence of dense vitreous hemorrhage, light cannot adequately ...

Laser photocoagulation–induced choroidal neovascularization (CNV) is an uncommon iatrogenic complication following thermal laser treatment for diabetic macular edema and proliferative diabetic retinopathy.1 Disruption of the retinal pigment epithelium–Bruch membrane complex due to intense laser energy presumably leads to the development of CNV.1,2 We report a dramatic case of laser-induced CNV ...

Although orbital exenteration has been recommended for extensive malignant conjunctival neoplasms, including those invading the palpebral margin, fornices, or caruncle, it has not been demonstrated to improve survival of patients with melanomas greater than 2.0 mm thick.1 We describe a patient with extensive conjunctival melanoma (CM) managed by eye-preserving therapies. ...
