KOL-Index: 36 BACKGROUND: Approximately 1 million new cases of herpes zoster (HZ) occur in the United States annually, including 10%-20% with herpes zoster ophthalmicus (HZO). Postherpetic neuralgia, a debilitating pain syndrome occurs in 30% HZ, whereas 50% HZO develop ophthalmic complications. Diplopia from cranial nerve palsy occurs in less than 30% HZO, whereas optic neuropathy is seen in less than 1% ...

KOL-Index: 33 PURPOSE: Orbital veins such as the retinal veins and episcleral veins drain into the cavernous sinus, an intracranial venous structure. We studied the effects of acute intracranial pressure (ICP) elevation on episcleral venous pressure, intraocular pressure and retinal vein diameter in an established non-survival pig model. METHODS: In six adult female domestic pigs, we increased ICP in 5 mm ...

KOL-Index: 33 BACKGROUND: Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) is a severe often fatal opportunistic infection of the central nervous system caused by reactivation of a ubiquitous polyoma virus, JC virus. Although typically characterized by multifocal asymmetric subcortical white matter lesions, it may be monofocal and affect the cortical gray matter. Among the broad spectrum of clinical ...

KOL-Index: 28 Chemotherapy-related neurotoxicity (CRNT) is an emerging public health concern. Visual pathway degeneration may be a symptom of CRNT. We surveyed the current literature for evidence of visual pathway degeneration in cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. A systematic review was conducted in PubMed. Six published articles met our inclusion criteria. The studies showed reduced retinal ...

KOL-Index: 26 Acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis (Sweet syndrome) is a systemic inflammatory condition usually associated with autoimmune or neoplastic processes and characterised by inflammatory dermatologic lesions such as erythematous plaques and papules associated with fever and leukocytosis. Neurological and ophthalmological involvement is rare. The authors describe an unusual case of Sweet ...

KOL-Index: 24 Current knowledge of traumatic ocular injury is still limited as most studies have focused on the ocular injuries that happened at the anterior part of the eye, whereas the damage to the optic nerve known as traumatic optic neuropathy is poorly understood. The goal of this study is to understand the mechanism of the traumatic optic neuropathy following the primary blast through a ...

Vision And Aging

KOL-Index: 22 This chapter focuses on few aspects of vision that are commonly impaired in older adults, and that have been associated with difficulties in the visual activities of everyday life. Structural changes in eye cause impairment of near vision at approximately 40 years of age and later in life cause decrease in visual acuity due to lenticular and retinal changes. Visual parameters that change ...

A Tough Nut To Crack

KOL-Index: 21
KOL-Index: 20 BACKGROUND: Biomarkers of chemotherapy-related cognitive impairment (CRCI) in hematologic cancer are understudied and underdeveloped. We evaluated the feasibility of using ophthalmic and neurophysiologic markers to assess CRCI in hematologic cancer. METHODS: Hematologic cancer patients either receiving (Ctx+) or not receiving (Ctx-) chemotherapy were recruited from a tertiary medical center. ...

KOL-Index: 19 OBJECTIVE: To describe the characteristics of patients with homonymous hemianopia from traumatic brain injury (TBI) seen in our unit between 1989 and 2004. METHODS: Only patients with a history of TBI, who had detailed clinical information and results of neuroimaging, were included in our study. Demographic characteristics, clinical features, types of visual field defects, location of lesion ...
