  • Survey of Ocular Prosthetics Rehabilitation in the United Kingdom, Part 2: Anophthalmic Patients' Satisfaction and Acceptance. [Journal Article]
    J Craniofac Surg 2017; 28(5):1297-1301Hatamleh MM, Alnazzawi AA, … Cook AE
  • CONCLUSIONS: The patient satisfaction is associated with the interplay of different variables that is related to ocular prosthesis design and its ability to disguise disfigurement (ie, prosthesis shape, resemblance to existing contra-lateral eye, etc.); patients themselves (ie, gender, age, occupation, marital status, etc); and psychological well-being and social support provided. Anophthalmic patients of the north west of England are significantly happy with their ocular prosthetic rehabilitation and support they receive from their regional hospital. Ocular prosthetics enhances their psychological well-being and social interaction and factors like patients' sex, age, employment status, and type of ocular prosthesis have no effect on their acceptance and satisfaction.
  • Current indications for pegging in the anophthalmic socket: are there any? [Review]
    Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2016; 27(5):465-73Jordan DR, Stoica B, Klapper SR
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although implant peg placement has declined dramatically over the past decade, a precise and meticulous technique under intravenous anesthesia in the appropriately selected patient can be a successful outpatient procedure. Fortunately, most problems are of a minor nature, and over 85% of patients are able to retain their pegs following proper management and timely intervention. Additional visits to the ophthalmic plastic surgeon or ocularist are required that may not be necessary if a peg had not been placed.
  • GeneReviews®: Microphthalmia/Anophthalmia/Coloboma Spectrum [BOOK]
    University of Washington, Seattle: Seattle (WA)Adam MP, Ardinger HH, … Amemiya ABardakjian T, Weiss A, … Schneider ABOOK
  • Microphthalmia, anophthalmia, and coloboma comprise the MAC spectrum of ocular malformations. Microphthalmia refers to a globe with a total axial length that is at least two standard deviations below the mean for age. Anophthalmia refers to complete absence of the globe in the presence of ocular adnexa (eyelids, conjunctiva, and lacrimal apparatus). Coloboma refers to the ocular malformations tha…
  • GeneReviews®: Lenz Microphthalmia Syndrome [BOOK]
    University of Washington, Seattle: Seattle (WA)Adam MP, Ardinger HH, … Amemiya ANg DBOOK
  • Lenz microphthalmia syndrome (LMS) is characterized by unilateral or bilateral microphthalmia and/or clinical anophthalmia with malformations of the ears, teeth, fingers, skeleton, and/or genitourinary system. Microphthalmia is often accompanied by microcornea and glaucoma. Coloboma is present in approximately 60% of microphthalmic eyes with severity ranging from isolated iris coloboma to colobom…
  • Frequent prosthesis refitting to prevent implant exposure in patients with retinoblastoma. [Journal Article]
    J Pediatr Ophthalmol Strabismus 2011 Jul-Aug; 48(4):238-46Williams BK, Schefler AC, … Murray TG
  • CONCLUSIONS: Frequent adjustments and refits by the ocularist are significantly associated with a reduced rate of conjunctival thinning and complete avoidance of implant exposure in patients undergoing enucleation for retinoblastoma. These findings are particularly significant for this population, which historically has demonstrated a high rate of implant exposure.
  • Congenital anophthalmia: a review of dealing with volume. [Journal Article]
    Middle East Afr J Ophthalmol 2010; 17(2):156-60Bernardino CR
  • CONCLUSIONS: Anophthalmia in childhood requires a close interaction between ophthalmologist and ocularist as well as a motivated patient and family. With early intervention a good cosmetic outcome with periocular symmetry is obtainable.
