Unveiling a rare aetiology of secondary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction: A case of morning glory syndrome with contralateral naso-ethmoidal encephalocele
Muthukrishnan Vallinayagam, Shravya C Balla, Anujeet Paul, Srikanth Krishnagopal
April-June 2021, 1(2):373-375
Morning Glory Syndrome (MGS) is a well-established association of basal encephalocele and usually presents with midline cranio-facial anomalies. 45-year-old female presented with Secondary Acquired Nasolacrimal Duct Obstruction (SANDO) in left eye. She had a broad nasal bridge, hypertelorism and a swelling inferomedial to medial canthus. Fundus examination in right eye showed Morning Glory disc anomaly. CT of the orbit and brain disclosed left naso-ethmoidal encephalocele. CT Dacryocystography showed partial dehiscence of nasolacrimal duct bilaterally. The patient underwent surgical repair of encephalocele followed by resolution of epiphora. The association of MGS with contralateral naso-ethmoidal encephalocele and SANDO is presented for its rarity.

Rubella eye disease: A clinicopathological case report
Dipankar Das, Jayanta Kumar Das, Balmukund Agarwal, Harsha Bhattacharjee, Gayatri Bharali, Debajit Deka, Deb Kumar Mahato, Saurabh Deshmukh, Apurba Deka
April-June 2021, 1(2):317-319
Rubella is a viral disease that affects human particularly pregnant females and causes transplacental spread to affect the fetus in utero. Congenital rubella in a child can manifest from mild to severe involvement. We report a case of a young boy with bilateral blindness and sensorineural deafness. Enucleated eye revealed the evidence of rubella eye disease. TORCH titer showed increase of IgG antibody in the serum. An extensive systemic examination and investigations by physician did not show any other signs of extended rubella syndrome.

Treatment of 0.01% atropine eye drops induced convergence excess esotropia and rebound myopia managed with 1% atropine eye drops
Shairin Jahan, Mihir Kothari, Meghna Solanki
January-March 2021, 1(1):140-141
We report a case of progressive childhood myopia who developed rebound myopia and convergence excess esotropia after switching from 1% atropine eye drops to 0.01% atropine eye drops. The esotropia recovered and myopia progression was arrested after stopping 0.01% atropine drops and resuming 1% atropine eye drops.

Cataract secondary to iatrogenic iron overload in a severely anemic patient
Mehmet Akif Erol, Onur Ozalp, Eray Atalay
April-June 2021, 1(2):259-261
High levels of iron may be toxic and cause various pathologies in the human body, including the eye. Studies have shown increased iron concentration in certain subtypes of senile cataracts. High serum levels of its non-reactive depot form, ferritin, has also been associated with juvenile cataracts in hereditary hyperferritinemia-cataract syndrome. Whereas this form of hyperferritinemia is inherited, there is no report on cataract formation in iatrogenic hyperferritinemia. Herein, we report a 43-year-old case who was diagnosed with bilateral cataracts a few years after she received intensive intravenous iron replacement therapy for severe iron deficiency anemia.

Isolated conjunctival lichen planus: A rare cause of cicatrizing conjunctivitis
Diego Paredes, Arturo Grau, Silviana Barroso, Juan Manríquez, Pablo Zoroquiain
October-December 2021, 1(4):615-618
A 58-year-old female diabetic patient with keratinization of the gray line, areas of linear scar traction, and forniceal shortening was evaluated. Cicatrizing conjunctivitis was diagnosed. Conjunctival biopsy was performed and the histopathological study revealed a prominent band-like lymphocytic infiltrate. Direct immunofluorescence (DIF) showed a heavy fibrinogen deposition which was irregular in the basement membrane consistent with lichen planus (LP). A full dermatological evaluation was unremarkable. The final clinicopathologic diagnosis was isolated conjunctival lichen planus. As cicatrizing conjunctivitis may have different etiologies with differing treatment strategies, it is important to diagnose this entity and start treatment with anti-inflammatory drugs to avoid vision loss.

Objective Scheimpflug imaging of the healing cascade and repair process of striate keratopathy with the concept of optical blooming
Prasanna V Ramesh, Shruthy V Ramesh, K Aji, Prajnya Ray, Meena K Ramesh, Ramesh Rajasekaran
January-March 2022, 2(1):3-5
To our knowledge, assessment of striate keratopathy (SK) is subjectively done with slit-lamp bio-microscopic examination, which is the most common practice. In this manuscript, we have reported the role of objective scheimpflug imaging modality, in decoding the healing and repair process of SK, post prolonged cataract surgery. The quantitative and qualitative framing of this pathology with hyperreflective and hyporeflective hot spots (optical blooming) has never been reported in the literature before. In addition to the imaging of the cascadic events of SK in default colour, the role of digital calipers in the measurement of corneal thickness in SK (in inverse colour) is also highlighted. This manuscript throws light on the unique features of scheimpflug imaging technology, for the possible consideration of it as a routine post-operative investigation in patients undergoing prolonged or complicated cataract surgery, in quantifying their SK.

Massage gun-induced ocular injury – A case report
Anthony Chuk-Him Lai, Eva Wai Nam Wong, Frank Hiu Ping Lai
October-December 2021, 1(4):702-703
A 30-year-old man presented to the ophthalmology clinic with a 1-week history of right eye blurred vision. He reported application of massage gun over bilateral periocular regions for 3 months. The best-corrected visual acuity was 20/25 in the right eye and 20/20 in the left eye. Slit-lamp examination revealed bilateral iris atrophy at the inferonasal region. In the right eye, there was anterior subcapsular and cortical cataract at the visual axis, associated with mild phacodonesis. There were dot opacities in the left eye lens without lens subluxation. The patient received right phacoemulsification with a multifocal intraocular lens implanted. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of bilateral traumatic cataract with symmetrical iris atrophy after repetitive periocular massage with a massage gun reported in the literature.

No-touch management in tick infestation of periocular skin
Vaisna Gopi, Lathika V Kamaladevi, Charles K Skariah
April-June 2022, 2(2):341-342
Ixodidae ticks are vectors of Lyme borreliosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tick-borne encephalitis, and relapsing fever. We present a case of eyelid tick infestation in a 49-year-old patient for 1 week. A slit-lamp examination suggested it to be a tick tethered on the patient's skin. Complete removal of the tick was done with 2% lignocaine infiltration locally around the swelling. The tick fell off from the periocular skin without any further manipulation. On entomology evaluation, it was categorized to be a hard tick Rhipicephalus sanguineus belonging to the Ixodes family. The patient was put on topical moxifloxacin and chloramphenicol eye ointment. The patient was followed up after 5 days and after 2 weeks and was found to be normal.

Dipankar Das, Prafulla Sarma, Kamal Chetri, Harsha Bhattacharjee, Saurabh Deshmukh, Nitu Kumari, Kunal Shinde
January-March 2021, 1(1):83-84
Congenital oculodermal melanocytosis is also known as Nevus of Ota, condition where blue nevus of skin and orbit are seen with ipsilateral nevus in conjunctiva and iris. They are often associated with glaucoma which can occur at any age. They can have melanocytosis and develop choroidal melanoma. We report a case of a middle-aged female with facial pigmentation and bilateral scleral, conjunctival, and iris nevus with an advanced glaucomatous change in both eyes and pigmentation of the palatal mucosa. Trabeculectomy with mitomycin-C application was done in the left eye. Gastrointestinal endoscopy by gastroenterologist showed gastritis and Helicobacter pylori infection.

Ocular changes after accidental exposure to distilled water: A case series
Pooja Karki, Chandra M Gurung, Archana Sharma, Ayush Joshi, Priya Bajgai
April-June 2022, 2(2):348-352
We report ocular changes following accidental injection of distilled water into the anterior chamber during cataract surgery. We have documented eight eyes that had an accidental distilled water exposure in the anterior chamber following which they developed corneal edema, raised intraocular pressure (IOP), and pigment dispersion into the anterior chamber. We treated all the patients with topical steriods and sodium chloride 5% solution and anti-glaucoma medications as required. All of them had pigment dispersion and deposition into the anterior chamber and onto the corneal endothelium and the intraocular lens surface. All the patients had resolution of edema and good vision postoperatively after a month. Thus, patients who were exposed to accidental injection of distilled water into the anterior chamber during cataract surgery had a toxic reaction in the postoperative period. However, the corneal transparency was restored completely without complications with adequate treatment. A strict protocol must be followed by the OT staff and the members at various stages of surgery to prevent such mishaps from happening.
