  • Post Treatment Photos: Showing Resolution of Disc Edema in Setting of IIH and Bilateral Transverse Sinus Stenosis

    Jun 1 2019 by John S. King, MD

    18-year-old African American female with increased BMI with a history of headaches, nausea, transient diplopia and vision loss that she notices when getting up from her bed (and goes away after standing upright) for the last two weeks. Went to PCP and was treated for the flu, and after no improvement and visual symptoms known, was sent to ED. MRI did not show any masses and showed empty sella turcia. Vision 20/30 OD and 20/20 OS; no RAPD; IOP 15OU; no anterior segment or vitreous inflammation; discs are elevated with obscuration of the disc margins and some of the smaller vessels; there are no SVPs; there are mild Patton's lines temporally (see initial photos). The optic disc cube shows 360 degrees of RNFL thickening (see OCT). Was referred to near-ophthalmologist, Dr. Doyle. She obtained additional work-up, and LP opening pressure was high, and MRV showed bilateral transverse sinus stenosis. Patient showed steady improvement with medical therapy, that included weight loss and oral diamox. On her last visit with Dr. Doyle, vision has remained stable at 20/20-20/25 without an enlarged blindspot; there are SVPs and optic disc edema has resolved (see post treatment photos); she is currently on 1000 mg of diamox and has lost 15 pounds, and no stinting procedure needed.

  • Acute Compressive Optic Neuropathy

    Jun 1 2019 by John S. King, MD

    84-year-old white female with acute loss of vision in the left eye one day ago was sent here after going to the ED per primary eye provider. She described vision loss as a grey curtain that became total darkness. She had left sided temporal tenderness and some left sided neck pain. In the ED the cardiac work-up was u/r, the ESR and CRP were normal, and the CTH showed some non-specific opacification in the L ethmoid sinus. Acuity was HM OS with RAPD, normal EOMs, no proptosis or ptosis, posteriorly no SVPs were noted; the optic discs were pink and flat; no emboli or retinal whitening present; some bear tracks located nasally (see photo). She was referred to Dr. Doyle, who ordered an MRI, which showed a large mucocele with bony erosion into the left orbit, along with some ON enhancement possibly from compression (see images). She was operated that night and later recovered to 20/40 in that eye with a residual, inferior arcuate scotoma.

  • Atypical Midperipheral Lesion that Looks Similar to Torpedo Maculopathy

    May 27 2019 by John S. King, MD

    14-year-old African American female who is asymptomatic, without any hx/fhx of FAP. One lesion seen in the mid-periphery of the right eye that is oval in shape, and has a "tail" (points to ora), and has the appearance and size of lesions described by Dr. Shields as torpedo maculopathy. I did ask Dr. Carol Shields about the case, and she said it is possible that this is a similar lesion in an odd location and noted that Gass published on one superiorly.

    45-year-old female with a history of gastric bypass surgery, who was referred to Dr. Zocchi for as a possible choroidal dystrophy; patient had severe nyctalopia that had progressed over a year; acuity was 20/20 OU with normal IOP and A/C findings. The posterior segment showed multiple yellow-white punctate dots in the mid-periphery and periphery (see photo). Findings were consistent with probable vitamin A deficiency. Patient was started on Vit A, and levels were found to be very low. Follow up is in a month.

    60-year-old African American female who had been treated for iridocyclitis for at least a week sent in for vitritis and a nasal fundus lesion. Complaints included redness, floaters, photophobia, and decreased vision. Husband had recent shingles. Acuity was 20/60-2 with IOP of 12, and small KP in Art's triangel, 1-2+ a/c cell, 2-3+ ant vit cell, diffuse arteriolar sheathing, multiple areas of retinal whitening in periphery and mid-periphery (see Photo #1). PCR of a/c was performed, and intravitreal GCV administered, and VACV 2g qid and ASA started.... PCR positive for HZV, pred taper was started two days after presentation as the infection had begun to stablize..... Five days from presentation the vision was 20/60, inflammation and areas of retinal whitening had improved (see Photo #2).... One week later acuity was 20/30, the a/c was quiet and KP resolved; ant vitreous cell decreased; and there was further improvement in retinal appearance without any signs of retinal holes or detachment; she is now on low dose maint VACV (see photo#3)
