    Title Long-term Success in the Correction of Exposed Glaucoma Drainage Tubes with a Tube Extender.
    Date July 2007
    Journal American Journal of Ophthalmology

    PURPOSE: To report long-term success of surgical correction of exposed glaucoma drainage device (GDD) tubes with a commercially available tube extender. DESIGN: Observational case series. METHODS: Chart review of surgical correction for GDD tube exposure by rerouting the tube using the New World Medical Tube Extender (NWMTE; New World Medical, Rancho Cucamonga, California, USA). RESULTS: Surgical revision of GDD tube exposure with the NWMTE controlled intraocular pressure without repeat exposure up to three years after surgery. CONCLUSIONS: A tube extender can provide long-term correction of an exposed GDD tube by bypassing weakened tissue, thus avoiding or delaying a second implant surgery.

    Title Effect of Adult Strabismus on Ratings of Official U.s. Army Photographs.
    Date December 2006
    Journal Journal of Aapos : the Official Publication of the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus / American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus

    PURPOSE: To determine if strabismus affects the ratings of official U.S. Army photographs. METHODS: Photographs of seven women and seven men officers (subjects) were digitally altered to give the impression of strabismus. Four photographs of each subject were obtained: two in an orthotropic state; one in a left exotropic state; and one in a left esotropic state. The photographs were presented randomly to a panel of 38 raters. Masked to the study design, the raters rated every photograph on a 1 to 10 Likert scale. The results were grouped according to eye alignment: two orthotropic groups, one exotropic group, and one esotropic group. Comparisons of the mean ratings were made between each eye alignment group and based on the subject's gender. RESULTS: The mean rating for each orthotropic group was 5.4 and 5.5 Likert scale units with a SD of 0.8 and 0.9, respectively (group 1 and group 2). The mean rating for the exotropic group was 5.4 Likert scale units with a SD of 0.7. The mean rating for the esotropic group was 5.1 Likert scale units with a SD of 0.8. Significantly lower ratings were obtained for the esotropic group compared with the orthotropic group (p=0.028). Women received significantly lower ratings regardless of eye alignment (p=0.044). CONCLUSIONS: This study indicates that the presence of esotropia negatively affects the rating of an official U.S. Army photograph; furthermore, female gender negatively affects ratings.
