Objective: To assess visual and anatomical outcome of full thickness macular
hole (FTMH) surgery with ILM peeling using brilliant blue G dye.
Dr Rohit Narayan was one of the winners at this year's Macular

September 6, 2017 -- Researchers here have created the first patient-derived laboratory model of macular
degeneration, the leading cause of vision loss in older adults.
diseases can vary widely, age-related and similar inherited macular
degenerative diseases are all characterized by buildup of debris in the retina, the light sensing tissue in the back of the eye that is crucial for vision.
Those with early age-related macular
degeneration are 4.
Contributed by ophthalmologists from Europe, the US, Israel, and India, the 15 articles in this volume outline patterns and etiologies of macular
edema and the importance of preserving the photoreceptors at the early stage to retain central visual acuity.
Objective: To know the outcomes of cystoid macular
oedema after phacoemulsification in patients with and without type 2 diabetes mellitus using optical coherence tomography.
Oedema (DME), a microvascular complication which is caused by the breakdown of the blood-retinal barrier, promotes neuroglial dysfunction and concomitant visual disturbance.
Objective: To determine the frequency of vitreo macular
traction (VMT) in patients of diabetic macular
edema (DME) as detected on spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT).
Main outcome measures were spherical equivalence, BCVA, axial length, retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, macular
volume, and optic disc area.
Zeon Healthcare has launched a new macular
carotenoid food supplement, MacuSave (pictured below).
degeneration (AMD) is the biggest cause of blindness in the region, currently affecting more than 24,000 people.
