case study for optometry

Age / Sex / Race 61 Year Old White Female

Chief Complaint Complaining of distance and near vision blur that became bothersome a few months ago. The patient was wearing single vision distance specs and single vision near specs that were about 4 years old, the lenses were very scratched.

Medical History (+) History of stoke 4 years ago with left sided weakness. Patient was vague about details but reports a full recovery (+) HTN. Controlled with Amlodipine (+) Depression. Controlled with Seroquel, Prozac (+) Hyperlipidemia. Controlled with Crestor

Ocular History — LEE 1 year ago — BCVA 20/30 OD/OS. Reduced VA attributed to nuclear cataracts. — Bifocals prescribed. The patient reports they do not wear the new bifocals because could not adjust to new lens form.

(-) Flashes, Floaters, diplopia, BIRT Other History (Allergies, Family History, Refractive Error) Refractive error: Compound hyperopia astigmatism, Presbyopia (+) Allergy to dust (-) Family History

What did you think the diagnosis was and what was your initial plan of action? At this point in the exam I am thinking the blur is related to a refractive issue or a result of the pt wearing older specs that are in poor condition. Also the patient had cataracts noted in the previous exam, and this could contribute to the chief complaint of blurred vision.

List any applicable testing and results of testing: OD: 20/60- OS: 20/25-2

Near acuity (habitual Rx) OD: 20/70 OS: 20/50

Extraocular muscles: Full range of motion OD/OS

Pupils: PERRL –APD

Refraction: OD: +3.75-0.25×80 BCVA: 20/60- // Pin hole No improvement

OS: +3.75-0.50×80 BCVA 25

Biomicroscopy: Lids/lashes: Thickened lid margin, debris on lashes OD/OS Conjunctiva: Clear OD/OS Cornea: Clear OD/OS Anterior Chamber: Deep and Quiet OD/OS Angles: Open OD/OS

IOPs OD: 15 mmHg OS: 16 mmHg

Dilated Fundus Exam: Lens: Grade 1 NS OD/OS C/D: 0.20 OD/OS Optic Nerve: Round, pink, obeys ISNT rule Macula: OD Red Macula. (+) Watzke allen test OS Flat, intact Vascularture; Mild arteriole attenuation OD/OS Periphery: Flat and intact no holes or tears 360 OD/OS Vitreous: Synuresis OD/OS. No PVD noted OD/OS

OCT: OD: Macular hole with vitreal macular traction. (-) cuff of subretinal fluid Vitreal traction just inferior to fovea. OCT image 89 Macular hole inferior to fovea. OCT image 95.

case study for optometry

List any differential diagnosis after your testing was complete and why: After determining the refraction was not improving this patients VA, we needed to find the cause of the reduction in vision OD. One year ago the BCVA OD was 20/30. The patient’s only complaint was blurred vision. We began to move anterior to posterior to look for a cause of reduced VA. The anterior segment was normal, the lens had mild nuclear cataracts but not enough to account for this reduction in VA. Pupils were reactive, there was no APD so that rule out optic nerve problems or extensive retinal damage. The patient had a history of hypertension and stroke so I was thinking something vascular may have occurred such as a branch vein occlusion affecting the macula.

Once I dilated my patient I was able to rule out BRVO. For the most part the fundus of the right eye looked normal, except for the fact that the foveal area was redder then usual, and redder on comparison to the left eye. At this point I was suspecting a macular hole. This suspicion was confirmed with the Watzke Allen test and OCT.

In the presence of a full thickness hole the macula will appear red and can have a gray halo of subretinal fluid. A partial thickness holes is not a red as a full thickness hole and the grey halo is not usually seen. A pseudohole can be differentiated from a macular hole by the Watzke Allen test.

What was your assessment and plan? (include diagnosis, treatment and follow up): Macular Holes are categorized into different stages.

Stage 1: impending hole Stage 2: small full-thickness hole Stage 3: Full thickness hole with cuff of subretinal fluid. (-) PVD Stage 4: Full thickness hole with cuff of subretinal fluid. (+) PVD

The treatment of a retinal hole depends on the stage of the hole and the patients VA. Approximately 50% of Stage 1 holes will resolve spontaneously. The treatment for a macular hole is a vitrectomy, membrane peel and gas injection. Following the surgery the patient is required to remain in a prone position with the head down for 7-14 days to allow the gas bubble to press against the macula.

The earlier a hole is treated the better the visual outcome. Holes in stage 2-4 with a VA of 20/40 can be treated. The prognosis is good for recent onset hole, but poor for holes that are greater then 1 year old.

Our patient had a small macular hole that was just inferior to the fovea with vitreal traction. We decided to refer our patient for a retinal consult. Anything else you would like to add? (Lessons you learned, the patients response, advice to students etc.) This case was of particular interest to me because the complaint of blurred vision is a common complaint heard in a general practice setting and is commonly a result of refractive error. This case was a reminder that a complaints of recent blurred vision can also mean ocular pathology.

Helping Dry Eye Associated with Sjögren's Syndrome: A Case Study

With a diverse array of tools at our disposal to address ocular surface diseases we as optometrists possess the ability to tailor treatments to the unique needs of each patient. Regener-Eyes® has proven to be an asset in my practice. I have one case to share with you that reignited my enthusiasm for the comprehensive solutions that we provide in our exam rooms. After enduring years of persistent dry eye symptoms and ocular discomfort my patient finally found relief.

Initial Visit

A 75-year-old-female presented as a walk-in with bilateral symptoms, that have been ongoing for the past two days with no signs of improvement, of conjunctival injection, intense itching, mild ocular pain, purulent discharge, foreign body sensation, and blurred vision. Her previous ocular history included years of keratoconjunctivitis sicca, superior limbic keratoconjunctivitis and meibomian gland dysfunction. She has Rheumatoid Arthritis, controlled by hydroxychloroquine and methotrexate for more than twenty years, and has been on adalimumab and celecoxib for two years. Her ocular medications at this time were cyclosporine 0.05%, cromolyn sodium, and artificial tears. Her last screening for hydroxychloroquine retinopathy was completed a few months prior to this encounter. Entering best corrected visual acuity was OD 20/200 and OS 20/80. Intraocular pressures were within normal limits. There was no preauricular lymphadenopathy. Slit lamp examination revealed an equal presentation in both eyes of mattering of the eyelashes with purulent discharge, toothpaste expression of the meibomian glands, 1+ conjunctival injection, instant tear break-up time with a decreased lacrimal lake and grade 2+ superficial punctate keratitis 360. No signs of any dendrites were seen. Corneal sensitivity was normal in all quadrants, and she reported complete relief of pain after instillation of 1 gtt proparacaine 0.5% The signs and symptoms seen at this first visit indicated that she had bacterial conjunctivitis 1. I had her discontinue all previous eyedrops. I prescribed moxifloxacin TID OU, eyelid hygiene wipes as needed for the ocular discharge and to change all bedding to prevent re-infection with instructions to return to clinic in 3 days due to her discomfort.

Follow-Up #1

At her follow-up visit all her signs and symptoms were improving, except for her SPK. A review of her charts revealed that she has had a pattern of cyclical superficial punctate keratitis, about once every 6 months since 2015. To continue to quiet everything down I took her off the moxifloxacin and started her on neomycin-polymyxin-dexamethasone gtts QHS OU to stabilize her ocular surface and had her back in one week.

Follow-Up #2

Given the cyclical destabilization of her ocular surface and the well-established challenges posed by the pathophysiological mechanisms of dry eye and meibomian gland dysfunction in treating ocular surface diseases, it became apparent that a comprehensive approach targeting multiple areas within this double-vicious circle 2  was necessary. Consequently, my initial focus was on reducing my patient's bacterial load. I used a heat pack to melt her meibum, instilled proparacaine 0.5%, used meibomian gland compressor forceps on all her eyelids, removing significant turbid meibum, and cleaned up the lid margins before and after with a corneal spud. These recurrences, difficulty controlling her SPK, scant tear film and a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis 3  prompted me to order bloodwork to test for Sjögren’s. The plan was to discontinue all drops for one week, to remove the effect of any topical preservatives/additives, and to only then start Regener-Eyes® LITE 1 gtt twice a day OU.

Follow-Up #3

At this visit the patient has been on Regener-Eyes® LITE for two days. Her bloodwork came back positive for anti-Ro and anti-La antibodies. The diagnosis of secondary Sjögren’s was communicated to her rheumatologist. In just these two days she reported significant relief in all her symptoms. The SPK was still present but with improvement, as seen in the figure. I repeated the meibomian gland expression procedure with the use of a heat pack, forceps, and corneal spud. I had her continue Regener-Eyes® LITE gtts twice a day OU, and no other gtts, for another week.

Follow-Up #4

The photos in the figure are taken after the patient was on Regener-Eyes® LITE for ten days. Significant improvement was achieved in signs and symptoms and dramatic improvement was seen in her SPK. She was no longer in pain, no itching, no discharge, no injection, no foreign body sensation. Most impressive of all, her best corrected visual acuity was at OD 20/0 and OS 20/20. She reported instant relief upon instillation of Regener-Eyes® gtts and I had her continue it, still twice a day in both eyes, with a follow-up in one month.

Follow-Up #5

After more than one month of being on Regener-Eyes® LITE there was complete resolution of all signs and symptoms with no recurrences. Her ocular surface was pristine and stable with a tear break-up time of 10 seconds. It was at this point that punctal plug insertion was considered, as there were no signs of inflammatory markers present, and I prescribed cyclosporine 0.05% along with Regener-Eyes® LITE. Patient is doing so well, seeing clearly, and feeling relief.

Regener-Eyes® played a crucial role in stabilizing her ocular surface. It also enabled me to provide relief sooner, avoiding the wait for insurance approval. The ability of the tears to create a stable surface as well as the composition of the tears is what we need to make sure that a patient’s eyes feel happy and comfortable. Regener-Eyes® was able to quickly achieve that for my patient and that is something the two of us will always be thankful for.
