Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a major cause of irreversible visual loss in developed countries in 65 years and older. The two types of AMD are non-neovascular type and neovascular type. Neovascular AMD is characterized by choroidal neovascular membrane (CNVM) that is due to the formation of abnormal blood vessels, which grow from the choroid into or under the retina. Although CNVM is present in only 10% of patients with AMD, it is responsible for 90% of cases with severe vision loss from hemorrhage and fibrosis. The pathogenesis of CNVM is a complex process involving the disturbance between proangiogenic and antiangiogenic factors. The vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) that released by retina pigment epithelium cells (RPE) is the most important of the angiogenic factors to stimulate the growth of new vessels. The formation of CNVM in AMD has been shown to be related to increase levels of VEGF. Anti-VEGF agents have drammatically improved the prognosis of patients with neovascular AMD.

Intraocular Pressure after Triamcinolone Acetonide Assisted Anterior Vitrectomy in Patients who Underwent Complicated Cataract Surgery

Triamcinolone acetonide (TA) is a corticosteroid that has been used for a variety of intraocular treatments, since a long time to treat many ophthalmic diseases. Also TA can be used in anterior segment surgery to help manage vitreous loss during complicated cataract surgery and also it has been widely used for staining the vitreous in pars plana vitrectomy. A lot of studies have reported an increased rate of ocular hypertension or glaucoma after the use of TA for intraocular treatments. Furthermore, vitreous loss rate is 1.92% during cataract surgery and it is important event for surgeons and patients. Herein, we report the 12-month follow-up results of IOP and BCVA in 27 patients who underwent TA-assisted anterior vitrectomy secondary to posterior capsule rupture.

 Traumatic Chiasmal Syndrome - A Case Report

Traumatic chiasmal syndrome is a rare condition manifested by the onset of a bitemporal hemianopia after head trauma. Trauma is one of the rarer aetiologies of a bitemporal hemianopia. Few patients survive the severe impact required to damage the anatomically privileged optic chiasm. Those who do survive have usually sustained a variety of neuro-endocrine and neurological deficits in addition to the visual signs.

Eyelid Plexiform Neurofibroma: Atypical Presentation and Management

Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is an autosomal dominant, multisystem disorder affecting approximately one in three thousand people. Neurofibromas of the eyelid are its wellrecognized manifestation. Several different presentations have been described. Some of the more common orbital and eyelid findings in NF1 are plexiform neurofibromas, causing mechanical ptosis and proptosis, optic nerve gliomas and sphenoid wing dysplasia.

Challenges of Managing Advanced Retinoblastoma in a 4 Year Old Nigerian Girl: Case Report and Review of Literature

Retinoblastoma is the most common childhood ocular malignancy. It is possible to save life and vision in many patients with retinoblastoma due to advances in management and care. In Sub-Saharan Africa, management is marred by challenges including poverty and late presentation. This was a case report of advanced right eye retinoblastoma in a four year old girl.

Ocular Loiasis in a Nigerian Female Adult

A 36-year-old female Nigerian civil servant (nursing officer) with a history of itching and discomfort in the right eye was presented to our clinic in May 2013. The worm, located in sub-conjunctiva space was surgically removed with the aid of slit lamp bio-microscope and identified as the adult worm of Loa loa. The patient was placed on conservative management after the removal of the worm and the chemosis at the point of exit of the worm resolved completely. The vision of the patient was however unaffected.

Assessment of the Anterior Chamber Angle after Trabectome Glaucoma Surgery by Optical Coherence Tomography, Histopathology, Ultrasound Biomicroscopy, and Scanning Electron Microscopy

To provide high resolution in vitro and in vivo characterization of the post-Trabectome anterior chamber angle.We used scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to obtain high resolution images of the post-Trabectome angle in cadaver eyes. We then characterized trabecular meshwork strips removed during the procedure using histopathology. Finally,we imaged the post-Trabectome angle in two patients using optical coherence tomography (OCT) and ultrasound biomicroscopy(UBM).

 Papilledema as the Presenting Manifestation of Neurobrucellosis

Brucellosis caused by Brucella species is a multisystemic disease that can affect any organ and system in the body with variable incidence. It is an endemic zoonotic disease, and common in certain areas such as the Mediterranean basin, and the MiddleEast.
