Diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a disease whose screening actually can change the functional prognosis for the patients. It makes blindness avoidable. Annual screening using funduscopy or retinography for all diabetic patients is mandatory and yet not sufficiently and systematically performed in France. French Public health authority is developping telemedicine screening programs in different french regions to improve the prevention of DR. The treatment of DR is based on the management of its 2 major complications, that can coexist: preretinal neovascular proliferation (proliferative diabetic retinopathy), and diabetic macular edema (DME). Both of these complications require preventive management through strict control of blood glucose, blood pressure and hyperlipidemia. Once the complication is present, PRP must be performed to treat the neovessels while antiVEGF or corticosteroids intravitreal injections are the best way to treat DME. Surgery is required for more complicated forms of DR, such as intra-vitreous haemorrhage, retinal detachment, or neovascular glaucoma.
- Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness Changes after Phacoemulsification with Intraocular Lens Implantation. [Journal Article]
- JCJ Coll Physicians Surg Pak 2018; 28(12):919-922
- CONCLUSIONS: Removal of cataract by surgery enhances the OCT measurement of retinal nerve fiber layer, resulting in increased thickness.
- Secondary hyperhomocysteinemia-related occlusive retinal vasculopathy: A case report. [Journal Article]
- AJAm J Ophthalmol Case Rep 2019; 13:41-45
- CONCLUSIONS: Hyperhomocysteinemia is a rare but well-known disease, capable of accelerating atherosclerotic disease and generating a prothrombotic state that can lead to multiple systemic complications. Despite its low incidence, the disease should be part of the differential diagnosis in patients with bilateral proliferative retinopathy, in the absence of diabetes mellitus and systemic hypertension.

- JWJ West Afr Coll Surg 2017 Oct-Dec; 7(4):72-84
- CONCLUSIONS: from this study, we observed that traumatic corneal lacerations were significant causes of ocular morbidity especially in children; public eye-health education is recommended as a preventive measure.

We experienced a case of sympathetic ophthalmia in a fellow eye after vitrectomy for subretinal hemorrhage related to polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy. A 60-year-old male consulted us for polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy with subretinal hemorrhage in his left eye. The recurrence of massive subretinal hemorrhage refractory to repeated pars plana vitrectomies leads to phthisis bulbi. Two months later, multiple serous retinal detachments were observed in his right eye. Positive human leukocyte antigen-DR4 and the uveitis were helpful in distinguishing between sympathetic ophthalmia and age-related macular degeneration. High-dose pulse intravenous steroid contributed to recovery of visual acuity after resolution of serous retinal detachment.

Since the publication of BEAT-ROP in 2011, intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) has become increasingly common for the treatment of posterior type 1 retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). However, long-term data on the safety and efficacy of IVB for ROP are lacking. Vitreous hemorrhage following bevacizumab injections have been rarely reported in infants with ROP, and the need for treatment of these hemorrhages remains in question. Here, the authors report a case of bilateral vitreous hemorrhage in a premature infant within 2 weeks of bilateral intravitreal injections of bevacizumab. These hemorrhages resolved without intervention with regression of ROP in both eyes. [Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina. 2018;49:893-896.].
- Outcome of vitreoretinal surgery for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment in X-linked juvenile retinoschisis. [Journal Article]
- IJIndian J Ophthalmol 2018; 66(12):1825-1831
- CONCLUSIONS: Favourable outcomes are seen in a majority of eyes after vitreoretinal surgery for RRD in XLRS; however, multiple surgical interventions may be necessary.

- Clinical outcomes of 4-point scleral fixated 1-piece hydrophobic acrylic equiconvex intraocular lens using polytetrafluoroethylene suture. [Journal Article]
- COClin Ophthalmol 2018; 12:2145-2148
- CONCLUSIONS: In the current study, visual acuity outcomes were generally favorable. The complications were largely transient. Significant complications included a suture-related infection, which required removal of the IOL, and a recurrence of a retinal detachment.
