Anterior megalophthalmos is a developmental anomaly of the anterior ocular segment. This is an X-linked recessive disease and manifests as bilateral enlarged corneas, open iridocorneal angle, hypoplastic iris and dislocation and opacification of an apparently small lens. We have also observed obvious vitreoretinal degeneration in our patients. What may threaten visual acuity later is an open angle glaucoma and retinal detachment. It should be distinguished from simple megalocornea and congenital glaucomatous buphthalmos. Two cases of anterior megalophthalmos in one family are presented and discussed here.

Vitrectomy was performed on 25 eyes in 21 patients with chronic uveitis from various etiologies. Postoperative follow up averaged 22.8 months with visual improvement in 24 of 25 eyes. In this retrospective study, the techniques employed and the beneficial effect of vitrectomy alone or vitrectomy combined with cataract surgery (Iensectomy in most cases) on improving vision and decreasing the number and severity of recurrent attacks of uveitis are reviewed. Also, the indications of surgery, the effect of the surgical procedure on intraocular pressure, the prognostic factors and the management of complications are discussed.

Forty patients with cataracts, as well as 40 patients with proven ocular toxoplasmosis were enrolled in this prospective clinical study. Serum IgG and aqueous IgG in both groups were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and the corresponding ratios were calculated. Serum IgG/aqueous humor IgG ratio was less than 100 in the patient group and more than 100 in the control group. On the other hand in the chorioretinitis subgroup the ratio was less than 13, while in the group With uveitis, the ratio was more than 13 (p<0.05). The results revealed that calculating the ratio of Serum IgG (antitoxo) / Aqueous IgG (antitoxo) may be helpful as an adjunct to diagnosis in cases with clinically atypical ocular toxoplasmosis.

Eales' disease is an idiopathic obliterative retinal vasculopathy that is treated with laser photocoagulation, and/or vitrectomy. In order to determine visual outcomes and regression of retinal neovascularization following scattered peripheral retinal photocoagulation, and/or vitrectomy in cases with Eales' disease, we did a retrospective study of the records of these patients treated in Labbafinejad Medical Center from 1988 to 1998. We studied the existing data of 67 eyes of 54 patients with complicated Eales' disease who had undergone laser photocoagulation and/or vitrectomy based on their clinical presentations. Our main outcome measure was the visual acuity changes of the eyes following treatment. In 43 eyes, scattered peripheral retinal photocoagulation alone led to complete regression of neovascularization and a VA of 20/30 was obtained in 60.4%. Vitrectomy was finally required in 24 eyes and of these, 37.5% gained a VA of 20/ 30. Although scattered peripheral retinal photocoagulation should be the first line of treatment in Eales' disease, it may not always produce regression of retinal neovascularization. In such cases vitrectomy may further enhance therapeutic success.
