A Profile of Central Corneal Thickness (CCT) in Primary Open Angle Glaucoma in Trinidad and Tobago and the Implications

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.553
Synopsis: 
This study was designed as an observational, prospective longitudinal consecutive series of patients, with primary open angle glaucoma and control, conducted over a one year period. 80.2% of primary open angle glaucoma and 78.3% of controls had CCT <555um; this independently confers a 3.4 fold increased risk of developing glaucoma; both cohorts showed 25% had a family history of glaucoma. This study adds to the body of evidence demonstrating the high multiple risk factors within our population. The author discusses the epidemiological implications and the need for improved efforts towards developing screening programmes, earlier detection and timely intervention.

Sarcoid Tattoo Granuloma and Ocular Sarcoidosis: The Great Masquerader

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.405

ABSTRACT

Sarcoidosis is a multisystem disease with both sight and life-threatening sequelae. It can be a diagnostic challenge as there is no definitive test. The IWOS has recommended guidelines to improve diagnostic certainty to improve early detection. The authors present a case of bilateral panuveitis and biopsy proven sarcoid tattoo granuloma. The roles of a multi-disciplinary team and early introduction of steroid-sparing agents are highlighted.
