  • Worked on lesion “…for about 20 minutes.”

  • Worked on lesion “…till it started to swell pretty good and it really started to hurt.”


Currently l.jpg

Currently…

  • “Swelling is spreading”

  • Lesion is becoming increasingly painful

  • “It really hurts now.”

Cirrus SD OCT


Topography ou l.jpg

Topography OU


Working diagnosis l.jpg

Working Diagnosis

  • Irregular topography OD secondary

    to Dry Eye

  • Suspect corneal thickness OS > OD

    (Ocular HTN/Glaucoma suspect?)

  • REC: D/C ceiling fan if possible, AT’s upon waking and throughout day, various samples given, consider “gel” HS

  • RTC 3-4 weeks progress evaluation


F u exam l.jpg

F/U Exam

  • Patient states mild improvement some days better than others

  • Using Soothe XP with some success

  • C/O of Mild itching

  • VA cc OD 20/25- OS 20/20

  • Cornea eval trace SPK OD, clear OS

  • Everted Lids: clear however, lids very “flaccid”

  • Lids everted w/o any particular effort or technique


Additional history l.jpg

Additional History

  • At this point the spouse offered some information through a question

  • “We’ve stopped the ceiling fan however, he has just recently started using a CPAP for sleep apnea. Will that dry his eyes out more?”

  • Working Diagnosis Changed


Fes sleep apnea and glaucoma l.jpg

FES, Sleep Apnea, and Glaucoma

  • Several ocular disorders have been found in association with Obstructive Sleep Apnea or OSA: FES, optic neuropathy, glaucoma, NAION, and papilledema.

  • 5-15% of OSA pts. have FES

  • 96% of FES pts. have OSA (collagen in esophagus / pharynx similar to tarsal plate – results in esophageal collapse)

  • 57% of NTG pts. Have sleep apnea symptoms

  • Glaucoma – 2% of general population, 7+% of OSA patients

  • Multiple studies have shown over 70% of NAION pts. have OSA

    Trigger: failure of AUTOREGULATION

    (all NAION pts. Should be advised to be evaluated for OSA)

Evidence of ischemia s role in glaucoma l.jpg

Evidence of Ischemia’s Role in Glaucoma

  • Overwhelming evidence indicates high IOP contributes to the development of glaucoma

  • As many as 80% of Ocular HTN’s don’t develop glaucoma

  • What about NTG? – about 30% of glaucoma patients appear to have normal IOP yet go on to have their nerves collapse and deteriorate

  • The Key? – AUTOREGULATION


Management25 l.jpg

Management

  • Continue to treat Ocular surface disease

  • Continue to monitor for Glaucoma

  • Encourage patient to have continued f/u care with PCP discussed OSA and potential neurovascular, cardiovascular sequela as well as glaucoma and ION

  • At March, 2008 exam, PCP expressed concern to patient that residual tumor may exist, and again recommended eye lid surgery.


Lesson learned l.jpg

Lesson Learned

  • PATIENT EDUCATION IS CRITICAL

  • This patient thought that the recommendation for ectropion repair and the recommendation for evaluation of the right lower lid for residual basal cell carcinoma were “one-and-the-same”


Management36 l.jpg

Management

Herpes simplex keratitis l.jpg

Herpes Simplex Keratitis

The Leading Cause of Corneal

Blindness in the US


Ocular herpes simplex l.jpg

Ocular Herpes Simplex

  • Each year in the U.S. 25 million people have flare-ups

    of facial Herpes (95% of population exposed by age 6yrs)

  • 1/3 of the population worldwide has had HSV infection

  • 700,000 have developed HSV-related ocular disease in the US

  • 20,000 – 50,000 new cases/yr 28,000 reactivations/yr

  • Rarely is this bilateral however, has been seen bilaterally in children

  • After the first corneal infection, 25% re-occur with in 2 years

  • It is the most common cause of infectious blindness in the Western World


Ocular herpes simplex45 l.jpg

Ocular Herpes Simplex

  • After the second infection odds of further recurrences

    greatly increases

  • 40% of these patients have more than one recurrence

    Infectious Epithelial keratitis

    Neurotrophic Keratopathy

    Necrotizing Stromal Keratitis

    Immune Stromal Keratitis (ISK)

    Endotheliitis

    (Keratouveitis or trabeculitis)

  • One of the leading indications for PK in the US


Diagnostic pearls l.jpg

Diagnostic Pearls

  • Evaluate lid margin and lash follicles closely

  • Look for a follicular vs. papillary response

  • Look for more of a serous vs. mucous discharge

  • Don’t forget decreased corneal sensitivity

  • Cotton wisp test (check before staining!)

  • Multiple raised epithelial defects vs. medium

    to large classic dendrites

  • Be careful with steroids on garden variety eye inflammation

Treatment oral antivirals l.jpg

Treatment - Oral Antivirals

  • Valacyclovir hydrochloride

  • Trade name – Valtrex

  • Acyclovir

  • Trade name – Zovirax

  • Both inhibit viral DNA replication by interfering with viral DNA polymerase


Acute phase dosages and precautions l.jpg

Acute PhaseDosages and Precautions

  • Valtrex 500mg 1 p.o. bid x 7 days ($88)

  • Zovirax 400mg 1 p.o. 5 x a day

    for 10-14 days (14 days $20)

  • Contraindicated in patients with

    kidney disease, liver disease, and

    immunosuppressed patients (HIV)


Acute phase treatment topical antivirals l.jpg

Acute PhaseTreatment - Topical Antivirals

  • Trifluridine ophthalmic drops

  • Trade name – Viroptic ($125, generic $95)

  • 1 drop q1h (8 times a day)

  • Vidarabine ophthalmic ointment (UNAVAILABLE EXCEPT BY SPECIALORDER)

  • Effective against strains unresponsive to

    Viroptic and Acyclovir

    What about steroids to decrease scarring?


Treatment of ocular herpes simplex l.jpg

Treatment of Ocular Herpes Simplex

  • HEDS –Herpes Eye Disease Study (Archives of Ophthalmology,121,Dec.03’)

  • Longterm use of oral Acyclovir greatly reduces the recurrence of HSK

  • 400mg daily, compliance is mandatory

  • Patients who stopped early – re-infected

  • 12 months vs. 18 months vs. Indefinitely


Diagnosis l.jpg

Diagnosis

We’ve all heard “Herpes Zoster the Great Imposter” however, Ocular Herpes Simplex can be cunning as well


Pearls l.jpg

Pearls

  • Consider superficial wipe with weck cell sponge or cotton tip applicator with HSK

  • Remember subsequent epithelial infections are not as irritating or painful

  • Family and friends watch for “red eye”

  • Do not miss multiple doses of oral Acyclovir can lead to reactivation

  • Think of it as BC or a daily Vitamin

  • If nonresponsive try Vira-A ung

  • LeiterRX.com – 800-292-6773

  • Be cautious with steroids!!

Lasik candidate l.jpg

?? LASIK Candidate ??

  • Is a patient with Fuch’s Dystrophy a candidate for LASIK?

  • Is a patient with Cogan’s (MDF) Dystrophy a candidate for LASIK?


Fuch s endothelial dystrophy l.jpg

Fuch’s Endothelial Dystrophy

  • Females 3:1

  • Autosomal Dominant

  • Slowly progressive formation of guttate lesions between the corneal endothelium and Descemet’s membrane

  • Guttate are thought to be abnormal elaborations of basement membrane and fibrillar collagen from distressed or dystrophic endothelial cells

  • So does performing laser on the corneal stroma effect this condition in any way?


Refractive surgery and fuch s l.jpg

Refractive Surgery and Fuch’s

  • Incisional refractive surgery, AK, RK, LASIK and ALL-LASER LASIK, is contraindicated in Fuch’s patients (?)

  • Surface Ablation, PRK, LASEK, Epi-LASIK are relative contraindications

  • It is estimated that there is 3-8% of endothelial cell loss during laser ablation


Dsek or dsaek l.jpg

DSEK or DSAEK

  • Descemet’s Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty

  • Descemet’s Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty

  • Impressively mild post-op

  • Minimal corneal edema or anterior

    corneal compromise

  • Rapid rehab with minimal to no astig.


Slide79 l.jpg

DSAEK VIDEO


Cogan s dystrophy l.jpg

Cogan’s Dystrophy

  • MDF, ABMD, EBMD, Microcystic Epithelial Dystrophy

  • Nonprogressive but fluctuating in course

  • F > M

  • 1/3 of patients have RCE

  • Irregular Astigmatism common cause of VA loss

  • VA loss does not match clinical picture via slit lamp exam


Cogan s dystrophy83 l.jpg

Cogan’s Dystrophy

  • Pathophysiology: Corneal epi adheres to underlying BM

  • Faulty BM – thickened, multilaminar, misdirected into epi: “maps & fingerprints”

  • Deeper epi cells don’t migrate to the surface: “dots, intraepithelial microcysts”

  • Epi cells ant. To the BM difficulty forming hemidesmosomes results in RCE


Cogan s dystrophy84 l.jpg

Cogan’s Dystrophy

  • Treatments: AT’s, Muro 128 gtts and ung

  • 2005 only prospective study to date no difference between AT”s and NaCl

  • Irregular Astig. CL fix? RGP vs. Soft

  • Superficial Keratectomy

  • Polish BM w/ diamond burr or alger brush

  • ASP for erosions or post Keratectomy, consider donut approach and spare visual axis

  • PTK or PRK if going for refractive correction

  • Not great LASIK candidates


Cogans dystrophy l.jpg

Cogans Dystrophy

  • For decreased VA w/ suspect irregular astigmatism look at placedo disc vs. topography

  • Consider Silicone Hydrogels however, beware most of these patients have some degree of dry eye and are more likely to have torsion marks / RCE

  • Daily vs. EW? Poor dexterity in elderly
