Familial deafness, congenital heart defects, and posterior embryotoxon caused by cysteine substitution in the first epidermal-growth-factor-like domain of jagged 1. (1/15)

In the present study, we report a kindred with hearing loss, congenital heart defects, and posterior embryotoxon, segregating as autosomal dominant traits. Six of seven available affected patients manifested mild-to-severe combined hearing loss, predominantly affecting middle frequencies. Two patients were diagnosed with vestibular pathology. All patients had congenital heart defects, including tetralogy of Fallot, ventricular septal defect, or isolated peripheral pulmonic stenosis. No individual in this family met diagnostic criteria for any previously described clinical syndrome. A candidate-gene approach was undertaken and culminated in the identification of a novel Jagged 1 (JAG1) missense mutation (C234Y) in the first cysteine of the first epidermal-growth-factor-like repeat domain of the protein. JAG1 is a cell-surface ligand in the Notch signaling pathway. Mutations in JAG1 have been identified in patients with Alagille syndrome. Our findings revealed a unique phenotype with highly penetrant deafness, posterior embryotoxon, and congenital heart defects but with variable expressivity in a large kindred, which demonstrates that mutation in JAG1 can cause hearing loss.  (+info)

Serum lipid parameters and the prevalence of corneal arcus in a dyslipidaemic patient population. (2/15)

AIM: To determine whether an association exists between plasma lipoprotein constituents and the prevalence of corneal arcus in dyslipidaemic patients. METHODS: Adult patients (n = 115) were included if their fasting total serum cholesterol concentrations exceeded the 95th percentile or their serum low-density lipoprotein (LDL) : high density lipoprotein (HDL) ratios exceeded 5. Slit-lamp assessment of the corneas was performed. RESULTS: The study group divided into a subgroup with arcus 37% (43) and a subgroup without arcus 63% (72). Total serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels were not associated with corneal arcus. A significant difference was found (p < 0.05) between the mean levels of LDL cholesterol (LDL-C) in the group without arcus (5.61 +/- 1.74 mmol/l) and the group with arcus (5.96 +/- 1.71 mmol/l). The mean serum HDL-cholesterol (HDL-C) in the group with corneal arcus was 1.04 +/- 0.30 mmol/l as opposed to 1.31 +/- 0.38 mmol/l in the group without arcus (p < 0.005 for difference). The mean LDL-C : HDL-C ratio in the group without arcus was 4.28 (SD: 1.99), and 5.73 (SD: 2.09) in the group with a corneal arcus (p < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Low HDL-C levels, high LDL-C levels and LDL-C : HDL-C ratios > 5 have been implicated as risk factors of numerous circulatory diseases. The observations in this study suggest that the presence of corneal arcus in the dyslipidaemic patient correlates strongly with these same risk indicators.  (+info)

Mutations in the UBIAD1 gene on chromosome short arm 1, region 36, cause Schnyder crystalline corneal dystrophy. (3/15)

PURPOSE: Schnyder crystalline corneal dystrophy (SCCD; MIM 121800) is a rare autosomal dominant disease characterized by an abnormal increase in cholesterol and phospholipid deposition in the cornea, leading to progressive corneal opacification. Although SCCD has been mapped to a genetic interval between markers D1S1160 and D1S1635, reclassification of a previously unaffected individual expanded the interval to D1S2667 and included nine additional genes. Three candidate genes that may be involved in lipid metabolism and/or are expressed in the cornea were analyzed. METHODS: DNA samples were obtained from six families with clinically confirmed SCCD. Analysis of FRAP1, ANGPTL7, and UBIAD1 was performed by PCR-based DNA sequencing, to examine protein-coding regions, RNA splice junctions, and 5' untranslated region (UTR) exons. RESULTS: No disease-causing mutations were found in the FRAP1 or ANGPTL7 gene. A mutation in UBIAD1 was identified in all six families: Five families had the same N102S mutation, and one family had a G177R mutation. Predictions of the protein structure indicated that a prenyl-transferase domain and several transmembrane helices are affected by these mutations. Each mutation cosegregated with the disease in four families with DNA samples from both affected and unaffected individuals. Mutations were not observed in 100 control DNA samples (200 chromosomes). CONCLUSIONS: Nonsynonymous mutations in the UBIAD1 gene were detected in six SCCD families, and a potential mutation hot spot was observed at amino acid N102. The mutations are expected to interfere with the function of the UBIAD1 protein, since they are located in highly conserved and structurally important domains.  (+info)

In Primary Care Medicine, especially family clinic, we see a lot of patients with hypercholesterolemia. In laymans term, cholesterol level is higher than the normal value. And in such cases, it means danger! Patients who have high cholesterol are prone to cardiovascular diseases, such as heart attack, maybe stroke even. And in patients who have chronic hypercholesterolemia, they normally have cholesterol deposits that are visible around their eyes, what we call xanthelasma, or maybe they have special rings around their iris, what we call the arcus senilis. But these signs are only present when the condition is chronic, or long-term. And even so, we might not even be able to pick up the signs. So, in order to prevent this condition, diet control is crucial. Avoid fatty food. Avoid KFC. Avoid nasi lemak. Avoid seafood.

Cornea plana congenita (CNA2) is a recessively inherited eye disease affecting development of the cornea, and leading to moderate impairment of visual capacity. The corneal changes are caused by structural abnormalities in keratocan, a leucine-rich protein component of a small proteoglycan, which together with other keratan sulfate proteoglycans is important for the transparency of the cornea. The cornea is thin and unusually flat, corneal limbus is hazy, opacities are frequent in the parenchyma, and arcus senilis developes at an early age. Hyperopia, up to +10 D, is the consequence of corneal changes.

The human iris ranges in size from 11-13 mm. How much of this diameter is visible to the viewer is determined by the clarity of the cornea at the limbus, the rim of transitional tissue where the transparent cornea joins the white opaque sclera. Though the anatomical iris is round, the visible iris is slightly ovoid, with the top and bottom somewhat covered by the limbus. This ovoid appearance is more pronounced at the bottom of the cornea and in older eyes (Warwick, 1976). This arcus senilis is an opaque, grayish ring at the periphery of the cornea. The artist should remember that the limbus is in front of the iris and casts a shadow on it, as does the eyelid.. Anatomically, the iris is generally conical in shape, defined by the lens that pushes the central portion of the iris slightly forward. This feature is often misunderstood, as evidenced by illustrations that show it floating independently. Ocularists generally use the optical qualities of the prosthetic cornea to give the artificial ...

Description: Cephalophorus senilis is a columnar and erect cactus 6 to 10 or even 15 meters high, simple or branching only basally. The flowering areoles develop an abundance of wool which confluently forms a dense mass called a pseudocephalium at the top or on one side near the top. The flowers are nocturnal red, yellow, or white, though the plant may not flower until 10-20 years old. The fruit usually are obovoid. The most striking feature is the shaggy coat of long, white silky hairs suggestive of unkempt hair on an old man and hence the name old man cactus, and similar names. The coat is a particularly striking silvery white on the young cactus; as the plant ages the stem begins to lose its covering. The hairs are modified spines and they make many a plant appear almost snow-white; they serve to protect the plant from frost and sun. However, the hairs are only the radial spines of the cactus; they conceal formidable sharp yellow central spines that belie the inoffensive appearance of the ...

In order to characterise the cognitive deficits associated with SIVD, a large sample of elderly stroke patients and healthy controls were investigated using a detailed neuropsychological battery and MRI. The patients with SIVD tended to be older and had less education than the OS patients. After controlling for these demographic factors, the results revealed both quantitative and qualitative differences in cognitive functioning between the study groups. Firstly, as compared to the NC group, the neuropsychological test performance of patients with SIVD was clearly inferior throughout cognitive domains. Secondly, despite comparable levels of global cognitive functioning in the Mini-Mental State Examination, the patients with SIVD had significantly lower scores in executive functioning and delayed memory recall in contrast to the OS patients with larger infarct volume. However, the performance of these two patient groups did not differ in mental speed, short term memory, immediate memory recall, or ...
Propagation: It can be propagated easily from seed (seldom produces offsets). The seeds can be sown in pots of fine, well-drained sandy soil, any time during the spring when temperatures are warm. Cover the seeds with a fine layer of grit and water from below with a fungicide to prevent damping off. For the 1-2 weeks cover the pots with a sheet of glass/clear perspex to keep the humidity levels high. Remove the glass and replace it with light shade-cloth and mist once or twice a day for the next two weeks after which most seeds should have germinated. From then on mistings can be reduced to every second and then every third day as the little plants grow. The seedlings should not be disturbed until they are well rooted after which they can be planted separately in small pots. Sometimes it is grafted to avoid root rot problems as plants grafted on an hardy stock are easy to grow and no special skill is required. ...
Xanthelasmas may be associated with primary biliary cirrhosis and familial hypercholesterolemia. Xanthelasmas are yellow plaques on the medial aspects of the eyelids and are commonly bilateral. Each lesion is filled with lipid-laden histiocytes. While xanthomas that appear on the eye are called xanthelasmas, those that appear on the Achilles are called tendinous xanthomas. Another example of physical examination findings that suggest hyperlipidemia are a corneal arcus, or lipid deposited in the cornea. Recall that in familial hypercholesterolemia, patients have elevated LDL due to a defective or absent LDL receptor. Heterozygotes have cholesterol in the range of 300 mg/DL, while homozygotes have levels above 700. These patients are at risk of severe atherosclerosis early in life ...

We used data from the Canadian census mortality follow-up study, which tracked mortality in a 15% sample of the adult population of Canada.17 People were eligible for the study cohort if they were aged 25 or older and a usual resident of Canada on the day of the census (4 June 1991), were not a long term resident of an institution such as a prison, hospital, or nursing home, and had been selected for census enumeration with a detailed long form questionnaire. About 3.6 million people met these criteria. The long form questionnaire was administered to one in five private households and to all people living in non-institutional collective dwellings, including the following types of collective dwellings serving homeless and marginally housed individuals: shelters and hostels for the homeless, missions, and YMCA/YWCA facilities (shelters); rooming and lodging houses (rooming houses); and hotels, motels, and tourist homes (hotels). For purposes of brevity, we use the term shelters, rooming ...
Muma (1989) combined the arcus group with the bilobatus group, noting that his newly described species indicate that the groups cannot be maintained separately. He revised his diagnosis of the bilobatus group to include taxa in which the mesoventral groove of the males fixed cheliceral finger may or may not contain distinct carinae, and in which the female opercula may or may not be lobate mesally within the posterior notch, or have lateral pits. In his key to species groups, Muma (ibid) characterized males of the bilobatus group as having the following characteristics: Fixed cheliceral finger with a distinct, elongate, mesoventral or dorsomesal cavity or slot occupying at least half of finger length; apical plumose seta of flagellum complex obscurely or not widened and flattened. Females opercula provided posteriorly with a distinct mesal notch and commonly provided with anteriolateral pits and often with adjacent distinct mesal lobes at the anterior end of the notch. He added Eremochelis ...

Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an autosomal codominant disorder characterized by markedly elevated plasma concentrations of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, typically ,190 mg/dl (,5 mmol/l) in adults (1-3). In most populations, ∼1 in 300 individuals carries a single copy of a loss-of-function allele in the gene encoding the LDL receptor (LDLR) or another variant in a related protein, which underlies the heterozygous form of FH (HeFH) (1-3). Untreated affected individuals have a markedly increased risk of premature cardiovascular disease (CVD), especially coronary heart disease (CHD) and early mortality (1-3). Each of several widely used diagnostic criteria for HeFH requires the presence of elevated LDL cholesterol concentration; confidence in the diagnosis increases from possible to probable to definite with mounting corroborating evidence, such as characteristic clinical features (e.g., tendon xanthomas, xanthelasmas, or corneal arcus), family history, and a positive ...
A white line on the peripheral edge of the inner surface of the cornea that can be seen during an examination with a slit lamp. Posterior embryotoxon does not affect vision but is a sign of a malformed drainage system of the eye. This phenomenon was once called Axenfeld anomaly but is now recognized as occurring in almost all forms of Axenfeld-Rieger spectrum. Posterior embryotoxon can occur in patients with no other eye abnormalities, people who do not have glaucoma, or individuals who have certain syndromes that are not normally eye-related, such as Alagille syndrome with liver disease. Strands of iris are sometimes attached to the posterior embryotoxon ...

This phenomenon was once called Axenfeld anomaly but is now recognized as occurring in almost all forms of Axenfeld-Rieger spectrum. Posterior embryotoxon can occur in patients with no other eye abnormalities, people who do not have glaucoma, or individuals who have certain syndromes that are not normally eye-related, such as Alagille syndrome with liver disease. Strands of iris are sometimes attached to the posterior embryotoxon ...
Purpose : To assess the prevalence of myopic retinopathy and its associations in rural Central India in a population based study. Methods : The Central India Eye and Medical Study is a population based study in rural Central India. Of the 5885 subjects that met the study criteria, 4711 participated, resulting in a response rate of 80.1%. Myopic retinopathy was graded from Category 0 to Category 4 according to the grading by the Pathologic Myopia Study Group. Results : Readable fundus photographs were available on 4561 (96.8%) subjects (8846 eyes). Myopic retinopathy was present in 15 (0.17±0.04%; 95% confidence interval (CI):0.08%,0.26%) eyes of 11 (0.02±0.07%; 95%CI:0.01,0.04) subjects. 8 of 15 (53%) eyes had a best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) of ,20/60 and ≥20/400, and 5 (33%) eyes had a BCVA of ,20/400. Correspondingly, 4 (36%) subjects had low vision (BCVA in the better eye of ,20/60 and ≥20/400) and one (9%) subject was blind (BCVA in the better eye ,20/400) due to myopic ...

BACKGROUND: Associations of C-reactive protein (CRP) concentration with risk of major diseases can best be assessed by long-term prospective follow-up of large numbers of people. We assessed the associations of CRP concentration with risk of vascular and non-vascular outcomes under different circumstances. METHODS: We meta-analysed individual records of 160 309 people without a history of vascular disease (ie, 1.31 million person-years at risk, 27 769 fatal or non-fatal disease outcomes) from 54 long-term prospective studies. Within-study regression analyses were adjusted for within-person variation in risk factor levels. RESULTS: Log(e) CRP concentration was linearly associated with several conventional risk factors and inflammatory markers, and nearly log-linearly with the risk of ischaemic vascular disease and non-vascular mortality. Risk ratios (RRs) for coronary heart disease per 1-SD higher log(e) CRP concentration (three-fold higher) were 1.63 (95% CI 1.51-1.76) when initially adjusted for age
Despite modern advances in cancer research, screening and treatment options, gastrointestinal tumours remain a leading cause of death worldwide. Both oesophageal and colorectal malignancies carry high rates of morbidity and mortality, presenting a challenge to clinicians in search of effective management strategies. In recent years, the increasing burden of disease has led to a paradigm shift in our approach from treatment to prevention. Among several agents postulated as having a chemopreventive effect on the gastrointestinal tract, aspirin has been most widely studied and has gained universal acknowledgement. There is an expanding evidence base for aspirin as a key mediator in the prevention of dysplastic change in Barretts oesophagus and colorectal adenomas. Its cardioprotective effects also impact positively on the patient population in question, many of whom have ischaemic vascular disease. The major side effects of aspirin have been well-characterised and may cause significant morbidity ...
Liver spots are also known as age spots, senile freckles, solar lentigo or lentigo senilis. They are basically brown patches on the skin that look like large freckles. They can be slightly lighter or darker than ordinary freckles and are a sign of aging skin. Most people develop some liver spots by the age of 40, but some people develop them earlier in life and develop a lot more of them. They are commonly known as liver spots because they are associated with poor liver health or liver congestion. People with a liver condition, or sluggish liver function are more prone to developing these spots on their skin.

Previous studies report that low levels cognitive function and history of smoking are associated with increased mortality risk. Elderly smokers may have increased risk of dementia, but risk in former smokers is unclear. We tested the hypotheses that the harmful effect of impaired cognitive function as related to mortality is greater in persons smoking at baseline than in others. Further, we used serum cotinine levels to assess recall bias of smoking history by cognitive function level. Data were analyzed from a longitudinal mortality follow-up study of 4,916 American men and women aged 60 years and over, examined in 1988-1994 with complete data followed an average 8.5 years. Measurements at baseline included smoking history, a short index of cognitive function (SICF), serum cotinine and socio-demographics. Death during follow-up occurred in 1,919 persons. In proportional hazards regression analysis, a significant interaction of current smoking with cognitive function was not found; but there was a

This is the Finding the Familiar archaeology mailing list for research support and identification queries for colleagues working on artefacts dating from c.1750-c.1950. The mailing list grew out of the first Finding the Familiar workshop, held in Sheffield in early 2009, and organised by Claire Coulter and Sheffield Universitys former ARCUS unit. The list aims to help redress a gap in specialist knowledge as more and more academic, commercial, and government-based colleagues work on sites dating from the more recent past. While some specialists are working on ceramics and glass from the relevant period, finding information on other types of finds is often difficult (and Google searches are not always reliable). The list welcomes queries on all artefacts from the relevant period, and any related issues. Announcements on future Finding the Familiar workshops will also be posted here. While we welcome members from all regions of the world, we want the list to focus on supporting colleagues ...

Archery is the sport, practice or skill of using a bow to propel arrows. The word comes from the Latin arcus. Historically, archery has been used for hunting and combat. In modern times, it is mainly a competitive sport and recreational activity. A person who participates in archery is typically called an archer or a bowman, and a person who is fond of or an expert at archery is sometimes called a toxophilite. The bow and arrow seems to have been invented in the later Paleolithic or early Mesolithic periods. The oldest signs of its use in Europe come from the Stellmoor (de) in the Ahrensburg valley (de) north of Hamburg, Germany and dates from the late Paleolithic, about 10,000-9000 BC. The arrows were made of pine and consisted of a mainshaft and a 15-20 centimetres (5.9-7.9 inches) long fore shaft with a flint point. There are no definite earlier bows; previous pointed shafts are known, but may have been launched by spear-throwers rather than bows. The oldest bows known so far come from the ...

Many different bacteria and viruses can cause conjunctivitis in the neonate. The two most common causes are N. gonorrheae and Chlamydia acquired from the birth canal during delivery. Ophthalmia neonatorum due to gonococci (Neisseria gonorrhoeae) typically manifests in the first five days post birth and is associated with marked bilateral purulent discharge and local inflammation. In contrast, conjunctivitis secondary to infection with chlamydia (Chlamydia trachomatis) produces conjunctivitis after day three post birth, but may occur up to two weeks after delivery. The discharge is usually more watery in nature (mucopurulent) and less inflamed. Babies infected with chlamydia may develop pneumonitis (chest infection) at a later stage (range 2 weeks - 19 weeks after delivery). Infants with chlamydia pneumonitis should be treated with oral erythromycin for 10-14 days.[6] Other agents causing ophthalmia neonatorum include Herpes simplex virus (HSV 2), Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus ...
Diagnosis can be established on clinical grounds and this may be enhanced with studies on surgically excised corneal tissue and in some cases with molecular genetic analyses. As clinical manifestations widely vary with the different entities, corneal dystrophies should be suspected when corneal transparency is lost or corneal opacities occur spontaneously, particularly in both corneas, and especially in the presence of a positive family history or in the offspring of consanguineous parents.. Superficial corneal dystrophies - Meesmann dystrophy is characterized by distinct tiny bubble-like, punctate opacities that form in the central corneal epithelium and to a lesser extent in the peripheral cornea of both eyes during infancy that persists throughout life. Symmetrical reticular opacities form in the superficial central cornea of both eyes at about 4-5 years of age in Reis-Bücklers corneal dystrophy. Patient remains asymptomatic until epithelial erosions precipitate acute episodes of ocular ...
... s are a sign of Wilson's disease, which involves abnormal copper handling by the liver resulting in copper accumulation in the body and is characterised by abnormalities of the basal ganglia of the brain, liver cirrhosis, splenomegaly, involuntary movements, muscle rigidity, psychiatric disturbances, dystonia and dysphagia. The combination of neurological symptoms, a low blood ceruloplasmin level and KF rings is diagnostic of Wilson's disease.[1] Other causes of KF rings are cholestasis (obstruction of the bile ducts), primary biliary cirrhosis and "cryptogenic" cirrhosis (cirrhosis in which no cause can be identified).[1] ...
... , also known as pink eye, is inflammation of the outermost layer of the white part of the eye and the inner surface of the eyelid.[3] It makes the eye appear pink or reddish.[1] Pain, burning, scratchiness, or itchiness may occur.[1] The affected eye may have increased tears or be "stuck shut" in the morning.[1] Swelling of the white part of the eye may also occur.[1] Itching is more common in cases due to allergies.[2] Conjunctivitis can affect one or both eyes.[1] The most common infectious causes are viral followed by bacterial.[2] The viral infection may occur along with other symptoms of a common cold.[1] Both viral and bacterial cases are easily spread between people.[1] Allergies to pollen or animal hair are also a common cause.[2] Diagnosis is often based on signs and symptoms.[1] Occasionally, a sample of the discharge is sent for culture.[1] Prevention is partly by handwashing.[1] Treatment depends on the underlying cause.[1] In the majority of viral cases, there is no ...
BCD is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner.[2] This means the defective gene responsible for the disorder is located on an autosome, and two copies of the defective gene (one inherited from each parent) are required in order to be born with the disorder. The parents of an individual with an autosomal recessive disorder both carry one copy of the defective gene, but usually do not experience any signs or symptoms of the disorder. BCD is associated with mutations in the CYP4V2 gene.[2] The nematode C. elegans has a duplicated gene (cyp31A2 and cyp31A3) that are orthologous of the human gene. These genes code for cytochrome P450s involved in fatty acid synthesis.[7] ...
... photoelectrica" (arc eye) means inflammation caused by photoelectric UV light. It is a type of ultraviolet keratitis. Such UV exposure can be caused by arc welding without wearing protective eye glass, or by high altitude exposure from sunlight reflected from snow ("snow blindness"). The inflammation will only appear after about 6 to 12 hours. It can be treated by rest, as the inflammation usually heals after 24-48 hours. Proper eye protection should be worn to prevent keratoconjunctivitis photoelectrica ...
Based on clinical appearance, color blindness may be described as total or partial. Total color blindness is much less common than partial color blindness.[5] There are two major types of color blindness: difficulty distinguishing between red and green, and difficulty distinguishing between blue and yellow.[6][7] Immunofluorescent imaging is a way to determine red-green color coding. Conventional color coding is difficult for individuals with red-green color blindness (protanopia or deuteranopia) to discriminate. Replacing red with magenta or green with turquoise improves visibility for such individuals.[8] The different kinds of inherited color blindness result from partial or complete loss of function of one or more of the three different cone systems. When one cone system is compromised, dichromacy results. The most frequent forms of human color blindness result from problems with either the middle (green) or long (red) wavelength sensitive cone systems, and make it hard to discriminate reds, ...
There is currently researching being done to find more treatments dependent on the different pre-existing conditions. Studies are being conducted in which madarosis can be related to malignancy. A study by Groehler and Rose found that there was a statistical significance between these two. They concluded that patients malignancy lesions on the eyelid have a higher chance of having madarosis than a patient with a benign lesion. They stated that despite the fact that it is significant, the absence of madarosis does not mean the lesion cannot be malignant.[10] In many leprosy cases, madarosis is a symptom or a quality after diagnosis. However, in India, leprosy is common and researchers report a case of madarosis before diagnosis of leprosy with no skin lesions, only madarosis. This allowed for quicker treatment.[11] A main reason many people have madarosis is due to the chemotherapy drugs. There was a clinical trial in 2011 that tested an eyelash gel called bimatoprost. This gel enhanced the ...
... is an eye condition in which the directions that the eyes are pointing at rest position, when not performing binocular fusion, are not the same as each other, or, "not straight". This condition can be esophoria, where the eyes tend to cross inward in the absence of fusion; exophoria, in which they diverge; or hyperphoria, in which one eye points up or down relative to the other. Phorias are known as 'latent squint' because the tendency of the eyes to deviate is kept latent by fusion. A person with two normal eyes has single vision (usually) because of the combined use of the sensory and motor systems. The motor system acts to point both eyes at the target of interest; any offset is detected visually (and the motor system corrects it). Heterophoria only occurs during dissociation of the left eye and right eye, when fusion of the eyes is absent. If you cover one eye (e.g. with your hand) you remove the sensory information about the eye's position in the orbit. Without this, there is ...
Braille is a universal way to learn how to read and write, for the blind.[17] A refreshable braille display is an assistive learning device that can help such children in school.[18] Schools for the blind are a form of management, however the limitations of using studies done in such schools has been recognized. Children that are enrolled presently, usually, had developed blindness 5 or more years prior to enrollment, consequently not reflecting current possible causes.[19] About 66% of children with visual impairment also have one other disability (comorbidity), be it, intellectual disabilities, cerebral palsy, or hearing loss.[20] Eye care/screening for children within primary health care is important as catching ocular disease issues can lead to better outcomes.[21] ...
The sequence of clinical events in VKH is divided into four phases: prodromal, acute uveitic, convalescent, and chronic recurrent.[2][5][6]. The prodromal phase may have no symptoms, or may mimic a non-specific viral infection, marked by flu-like symptoms that typically last for a few days.[6] There may be fever, headache, nausea, meningismus, dysacusia (discomfort caused by loud noises or a distortion in the quality of the sounds being heard), tinnitus, and/or vertigo.[6][7] Eye symptoms can include orbital pain, photophobia and tearing.[6] The skin and hair may be sensitive to touch.[6][7] Cranial nerve palsies and optic neuritis are uncommon.[6]. The acute uveitic phase occurs a few days later and typically lasts for several weeks.[6] This phase is heralded by bilateral panuveitis causing blurring of vision.[6] In 70% of VKH, the onset of visual blurring is bilaterally contemporaneous; if initially unilateral, the other eye is involved within several days.[6] The process can include bilateral ...
Lens subluxation is also seen in dogs and is characterized by a partial displacement of the lens. It can be recognized by trembling of the iris (iridodonesis) or lens (phacodonesis) and the presence of an aphakic crescent (an area of the pupil where the lens is absent).[4] Other signs of lens subluxation include mild conjunctival redness, vitreous humour degeneration, prolapse of the vitreous into the anterior chamber, and an increase or decrease of anterior chamber depth.[5] Removal of the lens before it completely luxates into the anterior chamber may prevent secondary glaucoma.[2] Extreme degree of luxation of lens is called "lenticele" in which lens comes out of the eyeball and becomes trapped under the Tenon's capsule or conjunctiva [6] A nonsurgical alternative involves the use of a miotic to constrict the pupil and prevent the lens from luxating into the anterior chamber.[7] ...
... (RP) is one of the most common forms of inherited retinal degeneration.[5] There are multiple genes that, when mutated, can cause the retinitis pigmentosa phenotype.[10] Inheritance patterns of RP have been identified as autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, X-linked, and maternally (mitochondrially) acquired, and are dependent on the specific RP gene mutations present in the parental generation.[11] In 1989, a mutation of the gene for rhodopsin, a pigment that plays an essential part in the visual transduction cascade enabling vision in low-light conditions, was identified. The rhodopsin gene encodes a principal protein of photoreceptor outer segments. Mutations in this gene most commonly presents as missense mutations or misfolding of the rhodopsin protein, and most frequently follow autosomal dominant inheritance patterns. Since the discovery of the rhodopsin gene, more than 100 RHO mutations have been identified, accounting for 15% of all types of retinal ...
Cycloplegic drugs are generally muscarinic receptor blockers. These include atropine, cyclopentolate, homatropine, scopolamine and tropicamide. They are indicated for use in cycloplegic refraction (to paralyze the ciliary muscle in order to determine the true refractive error of the eye) and the treatment of uveitis. All cycloplegics are also mydriatic (pupil dilating) agents and are used as such during eye examination to better visualize the retina. When cycloplegic drugs are used as a mydriatic to dilate the pupil, the pupil in the normal eye regains its function when the drugs are metabolized or carried away. Some cycloplegic drugs can cause dilation of the pupil for several days. Usually the ones used by ophthalmologists or optometrists wear off in hours, but when the patient leaves the office strong sunglasses are provided for comfort. ...

A 2012 review could not find strong evidence for any cause, although many theories have been discredited.[10] A 2015 review found that spending a lot of time looking at objects that are close increases the risk.[11] Because twins and relatives are more likely to get myopia under similar circumstances, a hereditary factor was suspected.[12] However, a hereditary nature of myopia has been ruled out by observing the experience of ethnicities transitioning to a modern (industrial and urban) lifestyle: around the 1960s, while the older generation of the Inuit in Canada had nearly no cases of near-sightedness, between 10 and 25 percent of the next generation was myopic, which would have been impossible if genetics were a deciding factor. A relationship between the length of time of exposure to sunlight (by being outdoors) and a lesser incidence of myopia has been observed, which would explain the growth in incidence as people begin spending more time indoors.[13] Myopic shifts seen during growth ...
Eye floaters are suspended in the vitreous humour, the thick fluid or gel that fills the eye.[5] The vitreous humour, or vitreous body, is a jelly-like, transparent substance that fills the majority of the eye. It lies within the vitreous chamber behind the lens, and is one of the four optical components of the eye.[6] Thus, floaters follow the rapid motions of the eye, while drifting slowly within the fluid. When they are first noticed, the natural reaction is to attempt to look directly at them. However, attempting to shift one's gaze toward them can be difficult as floaters follow the motion of the eye, remaining to the side of the direction of gaze. Floaters are, in fact, visible only because they do not remain perfectly fixed within the eye. Although the blood vessels of the eye also obstruct light, they are invisible under normal circumstances because they are fixed in location relative to the retina, and the brain "tunes out" stabilized images due to neural adaptation. This stabilization ...

The central retinal vein is the venous equivalent of the central retinal artery and, like that blood vessel, it can suffer from occlusion (central retinal vein occlusion, also CRVO[1]), similar to that seen in ocular ischemic syndrome. Since the central retinal artery and vein are the sole source of blood supply and drainage for the retina, such occlusion can lead to severe damage to the retina and blindness, due to ischemia (restriction in blood supply) and edema (swelling).[2] It can also cause glaucoma. Nonischemic CRVO is the milder form of the disease. It may progress to the more severe ischemic type.[3] ...

Treatment requires careful consideration of angiographic findings when a choroidal neovascular membrane is suspected which is a condition that responds to treatment. A vitreo-retinal specialist (an ophthalmologist specialized in treatment of retinal diseases) should be consulted for proper management of the case.[citation needed] Presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) have been successfully treated with laser, anti-vascular endothelial growth factors and photodynamic therapy. Ophthalmologists are using anti-vascular endothelial growth factors to treat AMD and similar conditions since research indicates that vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is one of the causes for the growth of the abnormal vessels that cause these conditions.[citation needed] ...
The hemeralopic aspect of ACHM can be diagnosed non-invasively using electroretinography. The response at low (scotopic) and median (mesotopic) light levels will be normal but the response under high light level (photopic) conditions will be absent. The mesotopic level is approximately 100 times lower than the clinical level used for the typical high level electroretinogram. When as described, the condition is due to a saturation in the neural portion of the retina and not due to the absence of the photoreceptors per se. In general, the molecular pathomechanism of ACHM is either the inability to properly control or respond to altered levels of cGMP. cGMP is particularly important in visual perception as its level controls the opening of cyclic nucleotide-gated ion channels (CNGs). Decreasing the concentration of cGMP results in closure of CNGs and resulting hyperpolarization and cessation of glutamate release. Native retinal CNGs are composed of 2 α- and 2 β-subunits, which are CNGA3 and ...
The procedure chosen will depend upon the degree to which any function remains in the affected lateral rectus. Where there is complete paralysis, the preferred option is to perform vertical muscle transposition procedures such as Jensen's, Hummelheim's or whole muscle transposition, with the aim of using the functioning inferior and superior recti to gain some degree of abduction.[10][11][12] An alternative approach is to operate on both the lateral and medial rectii of the affected eye, with the aim of stabilising it at the midline, thus giving single vision straight ahead but potentially diplopia on both far left and right gaze. This procedure is often most appropriate for those with total paralysis who, because of other health problems, are at increased risk of the anterior segment ischaemia associated with complex multi-muscle transposition procedures. Where some function remains in the affected eye, the preferred procedure depends upon the degree of development of muscle sequlae. In a sixth ...
Pupillary symptoms of Holmes-Adie syndrome are thought to be the result of a viral or bacterial infection that causes inflammation and damage to neurons in the ciliary ganglion, located in the posterior orbit, that provides parasympathetic control of eye constriction. Additionally, patients with Holmes-Adie Syndrome can also experience problems with autonomic control of the body. This second set of symptoms is caused by damage to the dorsal root ganglia of the spinal cord. Adie's pupil are supersensitive to ACh so agonist like pilocarpine whose dose wouldnot be able to cause pupil constriction in normal eyes would cause in this patient. The circuitry for the pupillary constriction does not descend below upper midbrain, henceforth impaired pupillary constriction is extremely important to detect as it can be early sign of the brainstem herniation[1] ...
