    ABSTRACT: Badminton is a famous sport usually played without any protective eyewear. Ocular injury from one's own partner in a doubles game, with the shuttlecock, is rare. Two untrained badminton players presented with severe ocular trauma during a smash shot from the partner in a 'doubles' game. Both the players developed blind eye (vision <3/60) in spite of immediate treatment. This article describes an unusual mode of severe blunt trauma with a shuttlecock while playing a 'doubles' game, leading to coup-countercoup injury. In addition, the article highlights the need for awareness of the fatal ocular complications and life-long visual disability, especially in untrained badminton enthusiasts.

    ABSTRACT: A 35-year-old male patient presented with a right upper eyelid mass with mechanical ptosis. The patient gave no history of trauma or surgery. On examination, there was a huge cystic mass fixed to the tarsal plate. Excisional biopsy with tarsectomy was done. Histopathology sections demonstrated a keratin-filled cyst arising from the tarsus. A thorough Pubmed search did not reveal an epidermal cyst of the tarsal plate of this size which was successfully managed. The incision was made in such a way that postoperative ptosis would be avoided. Excess skin was removed during the surgery.

    ABSTRACT: PURPOSE:: To investigate the amount of intraocular pressure (IOP) asymmetry in a large group of ethnically diverse patients with and without glaucoma, and to delineate the risk for glaucoma which increasing amounts of IOP asymmetry confer upon the patient. PATIENTS AND METHODS:: Collaborative retrospective study of 326 glaucoma patients and 326 controls. Former Wills Eye Institute fellows collected single pre-treatment measurements of IOP on patients diagnosed as having definite glaucoma based on characteristic optic nerve damage and confirmatory visual field damage. Patients with a normal eye examination who had normal-appearing optic discs and no apparent glaucoma, or who had a normal eye examination in association with refractive error or cataract, were used as controls. RESULTS:: Intraocular pressure asymmetry is a significant risk factor for having glaucoma (odds ratio, 2.14; 95% confidence interval, 1.86-2.47; P<0.001). Absence of IOP asymmetry between the fellow eyes is associated with a 1% probability of having glaucoma. A difference of 3 mm Hg is associated with a 6% probability of having glaucoma, and a difference of >6 mm Hg with a 57% probability of having glaucoma. The association between IOP asymmetry and glaucoma status is significant for subjects with both elevated IOP (P=0.014) and statistically normal IOP (maximum IOP≤21 mm Hg; P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS:: Inter-eye asymmetry of IOP is a common finding in patients with glaucoma. There is a direct relationship between the amount of IOP asymmetry between the fellow eyes and the likelihood of having glaucoma.
