To the Editor The rectus muscle plication is a useful strabismus surgical procedure as reported by Chaudhuri and Demer in the article titled “Surgical Outcomes Following Rectus Muscle Plication: A Potentially Reversible, Vessel-Sparing Alternative to Resection.”1 I first published the rectus plication procedure in 1991 and called it a modified ...

The Nd:YAG laser uses infrared light focused at 1064 nm.1 Using a short pulse and high power, it causes plasma formation, resulting in shock or acoustic waves that disrupt target tissue.2,3 It is commonly used for laser periphery iridotomies and posterior capsulotomies. Common complications after Nd:YAG capsulotomy include intraocular pressure ...

Importance  Disorders of binocular vision are increasingly prevalent among fee-for-service Medicare beneficiaries 65 years or older. Visual impairment is a recognized risk factor for fractures. Despite the association of visual impairment and fracture risk, to our knowledge, no study has examined the influence that disorders of binocular ...

Importance  Swedish Interactive Thresholding Algorithm (SITA) testing strategies for the Humphrey Field Analyzer have become a clinical standard. Measurements from SITA Fast are thought to be more variable than SITA Standard, yet some clinics routinely use SITA Fast because it is quicker.

Objective  To examine the ...
