Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) is an exudative maculopathy characterized by multiple recurrent serosanguineous retinal pigment epithelial detachments (PED). It is similar to neovascular age-related macular degeneration in morphological characteristics. This activity reviews the evaluation and treatment of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy...

Retinal dystrophies (RD) are a group of degenerative disorders of the retina with clinical and genetic heterogeneity. Common presentations include color blindness or night blindness, peripheral vision abnormalities, and subsequent progression to complete blindness in progressive conditions. This activity describes the various entities that fall und...

Orbital cellulitis is an inflammation of the contents of the orbit posterior to the orbital septum. The inflammation occurs secondary to an infection carried by the blood, from adjacent sinuses or even after trauma. This activity illustrates the evaluation and treatment of orbital cellulitis and explains the role of the interprofessional team in ma...

Purpose We report a case of localized endothelial decompensation due to airbag deployment during a motor vehicle accident. Case report A middle-aged woman involved in a motor vehicle accident presented with diminution of vision in left eye. Initial ocular examination revealed corneal abrasion, localized central corneal edema and mild anterior cham...

Bilateral exudative retinal detachment due to extra-adrenal pheochromocytomas in a pediatric age group has been rarely reported. We report a case of a 12-year-old female child with exudative retinal detachment and hypertensive retinopathy changes secondary to hypertensive emergency due to extra-adrenal pheochromocytoma. The patient presented with s...

Purpose- Subepithelial corneal haze is a complication of PRK. Our aim is to study biomarkers involved in development of corneal haze by gene expression analysis of corneal epithelium of patients undergoing PRK. Methods- Corneal epithelium of patients undergoing PRK was collected intraoperatively. Epithelium of 4 eyes of 2 patients who developed haz...
