Index of Cases
This book was written as a companion text to our popular Review of Ophthalmology text. While that book serves as a detailed and comprehensive review manual with an outline format and multiple-choice questions, this book s purpose is to review practical cases in ophthalmology.
Such a case-based approach to learning is something that we both encountered early in medical school because our curriculum was structured around it. The case-based method is a valuable technique of learning and reinforcing core concepts. We originally conceived the idea for this book while writing our first text: The Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary Illustrated Manual of Ophthalmology . We felt that a case review book was a natural extension of the material in the atlas, and patient scenarios would be a realistic and fun way in which to review the subject matter.
Although a number of case-based books exist that cover a variety of ophthalmic subspecialties, our goal was to create a more comprehensive review of fundamental eye disorders. The book is composed of 6 chapters that reflect the core topics in ophthalmology. The 116 cases were selected to test the: (1) most common, (2) vision-threatening, and (3) life-threatening ocular conditions that all ophthalmologists must recognize and be adept at treating. Each case is introduced with a figure and brief patient history. A series of questions probe the reader s knowledge of the condition by asking about further history, expected findings, differential diagnosis, workup, management, and prognosis. Additional information and figures are often presented as the case unfolds, and the suggested answers are found on the next page.
We hope you enjoy this case method of learning and find Case Reviews in Ophthalmology to be a useful aid for assessing and expanding your knowledge of ophthalmic diseases. We wish you success in your future careers.

This book has been many years in the making and as such there are numerous people we wish to thank for their contributions.
We are grateful to our instructors, mentors, and colleagues who introduced us to and taught us with this method of learning. We are also thankful to the ophthalmologists who volunteered to read initial drafts of the cases and contributed helpful comments and revisions to the text, in particular Dilsher Dhoot, MD.
We have had the privilege of working with one of our former editors on this project as well, Russell Gabbedy, to whom we are indebted for making this book a reality. We proposed the concept for the book years ago, and his unwavering support of this project has finally been realized. We are also indebted to his wonderful editorial and publishing team at Elsevier including Nani Clansey and Beula Christopher, and their staff.
Finally, we owe a special thank you to our families, Mae, Jake, Peter (PJ), and Stephanie, who have always supported us; even during those family times we spent writing instead of with them.

A 48-year-old woman with myopia complains of progressive deterioration in distance and near vision in both eyes for the past 2 years. She can improve her vision by sliding her glasses down her nose. Her past medical history is significant for diabetes for 10 years, for which she takes glyburide. She reports blood sugar levels usually between 120 and 140 mg/dL and a recent hemoglobin A1c of 6.8%.
1 . What is the differential diagnosis?
2 . What other history would you like to know?
3 . What would your exam entail?
Additional information: her current glasses are 5.00 D with an add of +1.25 D OU, her manifest refraction is 4.25 D OD and 4.50 D OS with +1.50 D add OU. The crystalline lenses are clear OU and there is no diabetic retinopathy. Cycloplegic refraction reveals 4.25 D OU.
4 . What is your diagnosis and treatment plan?


1 . Decreased myopia and increased presbyopia. The change in refractive error may be due to overcorrection in her current distance spectacle prescription, cataracts, diabetic macular edema, or medications (i.e. chloroquine, phenothiazines, antihistamines, benzodiazepines).
2 . How old is her current prescription and what type of glasses are they? Does she have glare/halo/starburst from lights? Has the diabetes ever affected her retina and if so did she ever have any retinal treatment? Is she taking any other medications?
3 . Measure her current glass prescription, perform a manifest refraction, and then a complete eye exam with attention to the crystalline lens for cataract and retina for diabetic macular edema.
4 . Myopia/presbyopia with overminused glasses. A new glasses prescription should be given using the power from her manifest refraction. She should continue good blood sugar control and return for annual eye exams.
A 50-year-old man with low myopia is noticing more difficulty reading with his distance glasses. He usually takes his glasses off to read but says this is becoming a hassle, and therefore he wants a new pair of glasses.
1 . What is the problem?
2 . What are his options?
3 . What are the 2 prismatic effects that occur with bifocals?
4 . Discuss the pros and cons of different bifocal designs.


1 . Presbyopia.
2 . The glasses options are progressive, bifocal, or single vision lenses. Glasses for the computer can be single vision, trifocal, or computer bifocals.
3 . Image jump and image displacement.
Image jump is related to the position of the optical center of the add segment. It is produced by the sudden prismatic power at the top of the bifocal segment (it is not influenced by the type of underlying lens). As the patient s line of sight crosses from the
