Importance  Differences in ocular anatomy may contribute to ethnic differences in glaucoma risk. Because the trabecular meshwork (TM) plays an important role in aqueous outflow, its anatomy in relation to at-risk populations may provide insight into a potential contributor to elevated intraocular pressure and thus to probability ...

Idiopathic intermediate uveitis (IIU) is a potentially sight-threatening inflammatory disease characterized by breakdown of the blood-retina barrier with consequent leukocytic infiltration of the vitreous and retina. Poor visual outcome has been associated with cystoid macular edema, poor vision at presentation, and male sex.1 The human leukocyte antigen (HLA) allele DRB1*1501 ...

Lasers used for laser hair removal operate between 700 and 1000 nm to be absorbed by the hair follicle melanin and destroy it by thermal injury. Consequently, there is a theoretical risk of retinal damage due to the high melanin concentration in the retinal pigment epithelium. Thus, ocular protection during ...

Repeated experience with dichoptic perceptual learning tasks and dichoptic game play have been shown to be effective in improving the visual acuity of amblyopic children and adults.1- 4 However, whether the visual acuity gains achieved with binocular treatment are long lasting has not yet been addressed. We examined the durability ...

Corneal mechanical strength is critical to withstanding intraocular pressure and maintaining normal shape.1,2 In keratoconus, the mechanical stability is compromised,3 which may lead to progressive morphological changes. Therefore, a noninvasive technique capable of accurately measuring the mechanical properties of the cornea may help us understand the mechanism of keratoconus development ...

Idiopathic macular hole is a condition widely believed to result from disruption of retinal tissue due to anteroposterior vitreofoveal traction.1 Previous reports have used spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) to demonstrate cross-sectional images of macular hole formation in the setting of vitreomacular traction.1- 3 Herein, we present sequential en face ...

Importance  The presence of choroidal hyperreflective foci in Stargardt disease is, to our knowledge, a potentially new finding. Evaluation of these foci may aid in better understanding of the disease process.

Importance  Conjunctival UV autofluorescence (CUVAF) photography was developed to detect and characterize preclinical sunlight-induced ocular damage. Ocular sun exposure has been related to cases of pterygia and was recently negatively correlated with myopia. Hence, CUVAF has excellent potential as an objective biomarker of sun exposure. However, much ...

To the Editor Choi et al1 concluded that optic disc tilt, which they classified as a disc ovality (ratio between the longest and shortest disc diameters) greater than 1.30, appeared to be associated with bihemispheric retinal nerve fiber layer defects in patients with early glaucoma and that this association is ...
To the Editor The Invited Commentary by Naseri and McLeod1 on immediate sequential cataract surgery (ISCS) compared with delayed sequential cataract surgery (DSCS) based on my physician perspective cost-analysis model2 is an excellent analysis that discusses how premium intraocular lens (IOL) use may affect this model. It also reviews various ...
