Infections after strabismus surgery occur in approximately 1 case per 1200 procedures.1 Although extremely rare, these infections can be devastating. The source of most infections is thought to be contamination of the sutures and needles used in surgery,2,3 with colonization rates as high as 28%.4 The bacteria are suspected to originate from the eyelid margin, conjunctiva, and periocular skin.

To determine the heritability of nuclear cataract progression and to explore prospectively the effect of dietary micronutrients on the progression of nuclear cataract.

Ruling out glaucoma in myopic eyes often poses a diagnostic challenge because of atypical optic disc morphology and visual field defects that can mimic glaucoma. We determined whether neuroretinal rim assessment based on Bruch's membrane opening (BMO), rather than conventional optic disc margin (DM)-based assessment or retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, yielded higher diagnostic accuracy in myopic patients with glaucoma.

To map the 3-dimensional (3D) strain of the optic nerve head (ONH) in vivo after intraocular pressure (IOP) lowering by trabeculectomy (TE) and to establish associations between ONH strain and retinal sensitivity.

To explore the visual acuity and anatomic outcomes over 24 months of patients with diabetic macular edema (DME) who showed a delayed anatomic response after 3 ranibizumab injections in the RIDE and RISE trials.

To report the incidence of acute postoperative endophthalmitis (POE) after cataract surgery from 2005 to 2014 in France.
