  • Acute Secondary Optic Neuropathy as a Complication of a Single Episode of Acutely Raised Intra Ocular Pressure - a Case Series. [Journal Article]
  • JGJ Glaucoma 2018 Sep 18
  • Garala P, Bansal A
  • CONCLUSIONS: This rare cases series highlights the importance of increased awareness of the possibility of developing acute secondary optic neuropathy in patients with acutely raised IOP. Based on the acute clinical features, including disc edema with disc hemorrhages and an afferent pupillary defect the most likely pathophysiology of the resultant optic nerve injury is the acute impact of high IOP on optic nerve head perfusion. This appears similar to Non Arteritic Anterior Ischaemic Optic Neuropathy (NAAION). Other systemic and local risk factors may also contribute. Appropriate timely management to reduce the acutely raised IOP are essential but may not be sufficient in preventing optic neuropathy due to changes at presentation.
  • Evaluation of choroidal perfusion changes in obese patients: ocular effects of insulin resistance. [Journal Article]
  • ABArq Bras Oftalmol 2018 Sep 13
  • Öner Rİ, Karadağ AS
  • CONCLUSIONS: We found reduced mean choroidal thickness and ocular pulse amplitude and increased mean intraocular pressure in obese patients. These changes indicated a decrease in choroidal perfusion and ocular blood flow. It may be possible to detect ocular blood flow changes in obese patients through noninvasive assessment using the choroid. The negative correlation between insulin resistance and ocular pulse amplitude may be associated with intracellular fat accumulation in obese patients.
  • Intranasal Corticosteroids Do Not Lead to Ocular Changes: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. [Journal Article]
  • LLaryngoscope 2018 Sep 19
  • Valenzuela CV, Liu JC, … Lieu JEC
  • CONCLUSIONS: Use of INCS is not associated with a significant risk of elevating IOP or developing a posterior subcapsular cataract in patients with allergic rhinitis. Presence of glaucoma, however, is the real clinical adverse event of concern. There were zero reported cases of glaucoma at 12 months. Future studies should formally evaluate for glaucoma rather than use IOP measures as a surrogate. Laryngoscope, 2018.
