Characterization of Retinal Function using Microperimetry-Derived Metrics in both Adults and Children with RPGR-Associated Retinopathy

X-linked retinitis pigmentosa (XLRP) is a subset of genetically heterogenous conditions that fall under the broad phenotypic group of retinitis pigmentosa (RP). Affected individuals typically present with nyctalopia and progressive peripheral visual loss. In the later stages of the condition, central vision becomes affected, resulting in severe visual impairment. (1)

Clinical Accuracy of Six Intraocular Lens Power Calculation Formulas in Elongated Eyes, According to Anterior Chamber Depth

Purpose: To investigate the influence of anterior chamber depth (ACD) on the accuracy of the Kane, EVO 2.0, Barrett Universal II (BU II), Olsen, SRK/T, and Haigis formula in patients with elongated eyes.Design: Retrospective case series study.Methods: A total of 106 patients (106 eyes) diagnosed with high myopia (axial length ≥ 26 mm) were enrolled and divided into three subgroups according to preoperative ACD. Mean refractive error (ME), mean absolute refractive error (MAE), median absolute refractive error (MedAE), and proportions of eyes within ±0.25D, ±0.50D, ±0.75D, and ±1.00D were calculated.

Long-Term Outcomes and Risk Factors for Severe Vision Loss in Autosomal Dominant Neovascular Inflammatory Vitreoretinopathy (ADNIV)

Purpose: Autosomal dominant neovascular inflammatory vitreoretinopathy (ADNIV) is a rare disorder characterized by uveitis, retinal neovascularization, and retinal degeneration. We sought to describe the course of treated and untreated ADNIV and to identify risk factors for severe vision loss.Design: Observational case series.Methods: Clinical data from ADNIV patients from four families seen from 1967 through 2019 at a single academic, tertiary referral center were reviewed. The main outcome measures were visual acuity at baseline and follow-up, as well as risk factors for vision loss.

Retinopathy of Prematurity: Advances in the Screening and Treatment of Retinopathy of Prematurity Using a Single Center Approach

Purpose. To focus on the longitudinal evaluation of high-risk infants for the development of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) at a single tertiary neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and to evaluate evolving demographics of ROP and the transition of treatment-warranted disease.Methods. Consecutive retrospective review was performed of all infants screened for ROP between 1990 and 2019 at the Jackson Memorial Hospital neonatal intensive care unit. All inborn infants meeting a birth criteria of <32 weeks gestational age (GA) or a birthweight (BW) of 1500 grams were included.
