Posterior capsule opacification (PCO) is the most common and amblyogenic complication after pediatric cataract surgery. Amongst the several foldable IOLs, hydrophobic acrylic material is proven to be the most biocompatible in children as well as adults. With a vast array of foldable hydrophobic acrylic IOLs of different manufacturers now available, we decided to compare some of them on their effect on the visual axis opacification (VAO) and compatibility after pediatric cataract surgery.

FP472 : Retinal Correlates of Strabismic Amblyopia: Lessons Learned from SD – OCT with Enhanced Depth Imaging

Dr. Sanitha Sathyan, S12939, Dr. Meena Chembil Kakkitampara, Dr. Elizabeth Joseph

To compare the circumpapillary retinal nerve fibre layer thickness (RNFLT), optic nerve head parameters, macular parameters, and choroidal thickness between amblyopic and fellow eyes in patients between 5-15 years of age with unilateral strabismic amblyopia using stratus domain-optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) with enhanced depth imaging (EDI).MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a cross sectional observational study which included 48 unilateral strabismic amblyopes between 5-15 years using Optical Coherence Tomography.

FP727 : Retinopathy of Prematurity – Intersibling Variability of Risk Factors Among Twins.

Dr. N S. Sudeep, Dr. Kavitha C.V., Dr.Pavana Acharya

A prospective study was done on 32 paired twins at Hassan. All twins admitted to NICU with low birth weight (LBW) <2000grms and/or gestational age<34weeks during December 2015 to April 2016 were screened for ROP using  RETcam.Twin1 and 2 were categorized based on order of delivery. Both maternal and neonatal risk factors were analyzed.

Dr. Mihir Trilok Kothari, K08617, Dr.Shruti Lad, Md. Oliullah Abdal

Amblyopia has a3-5%population prevalence and remains the commonest cause of monocular blindness in age group 20-50 years.  Next to refractive error, amblyopia is an ophthalmic disorder with the best opportunity-cost. The conventional treatment for unilateral amblyopia is still the occlusion therapy or patching. However, there are at least6 major issues with this therapy.
