      BACKGROUND: Published audits have demonstrated that corneal abrasions are a common presenting eye complaint. Eye patches are often recommended for treating corneal abrasions despite the lack of evidence for their use. This systematic review was conducted to determine the effects of the eye patch when used to treat corneal abrasions.

      OBJECTIVES: The objective of this review was to assess the effects of patching for corneal abrasion on healing and pain relief.

      SEARCH METHODS: We searched ...

      BACKGROUND: Recent audits show that corneal abrasion is a common presenting eye complaint. Eye patches are often recommended for treating corneal abrasions despite the lack of evidence for their use. This systematic review was conducted to determine the effects of the eye patch when used to treat corneal abrasions.

      OBJECTIVES: The objective of this review was to test the hypothesis that patching an eye following a corneal abrasion improves healing or provides pain relief.

      BACKGROUND: There is a wide variation in the use of diagnostic tests for dry eye disease. The purpose of this study was to survey the attitudes of eye practitioners towards both tests and therapies available for dry eye disease.

      METHOD: An anonymous, web-based questionnaire was used, containing both quantitative and qualitative sections.

      RESULTS: Thirty-eight respondents, evenly distributed in experience, confirmed the wide variation of diagnostic tests in use. History and staining ...

      BACKGROUND: To determine access to and utilization of eye health services for indigenous Australians.

      DESIGN: A national, stratified, random cluster sample was drawn from 30 communities across Australia that each included about 300 indigenous people.

      PARTICIPANTS: A total of 1189 indigenous adults aged 40 and above were examined, representing 79% of the target population.

      METHODS: Eye health services data including nature and availability of facilities and workforce supply were collected ...

      BACKGROUND: This paper aims to describe models for service integration between ophthalmology and optometry when conducting outreach eye services. The effect of good coordination on clinical activity and cost-effectiveness is examined.

      DESIGN: Cross-sectional case study based on remote outreach ophthalmology services in Australia.

      PARTICIPANTS: Key stake-holders from eye services in nine outreach regions participated in the study.

      METHODS: Semistructured interviews were conducted to ...

      Trachoma is the leading cause of infectious blindness worldwide. Many populations living in poverty are affected by trachoma. The infectious organism is provided with an ideal milieu for transmission, where markers of poverty are present. These include overcrowding, lack of adequate water resources, limited use of water for personal hygiene, inadequate waste disposal and other conditions that encourage the proliferation of flies. This review summarises treatment strategies that have been ...

      Trachoma


      [ PUBLICATION ]
      KOL-Index: 4479

      Trachoma is a keratoconjunctivitis caused by ocular infection with Chlamydia trachomatis. Repeated or persistent episodes lead to increasingly severe inflammation that can progress to scarring of the upper tarsal conjunctiva. Trichiasis develops when scarring distorts the upper eyelid sufficiently to cause one or more lashes to abrade the cornea, scarring it in turn and causing blindness. Active trachoma affects an estimated 84 million people; another 7.6 million have end-stage disease, ...

      BACKGROUND: This paper aims to describe funding models used and compare the effects of funding models for remuneration on clinical activity and cost-effectiveness in outreach eye services in Australia.

      DESIGN: Cross-sectional case study based in remote outreach ophthalmology services in Australia.

      PARTICIPANTS: Key stake-holders from eye services in nine outreach regions participated in the study.

      Trachoma is a significant public health problem that is endemic in 57 countries, affecting 40.6 million people and contributing to 4% of the global burden of blindness. Repeated episodes of infection from Chlamydia trachomatis lead to long-term inflammation, scarring of the tarsal conjunctiva and distortion of the upper eyelid with in-turning of eyelashes that abrade the surface of the globe. This constant abrasion, in turn, can cause irreversible corneal opacity and blindness. The ...

      Trumpet tension


      [ PUBLICATION ]
      KOL-Index: 184

      The case of a 78-year-old man with progressive glaucoma despite seemingly adequate control of his intraocular eye pressure is presented. On further questioning he was discovered to have played the trumpet for up to 4 h per day for 60 years. Significant increases in intraocular pressure were subsequently recorded during trumpet playing.
