Foveal hypoplasia is a condition characterised by underdevelopment of the fovea and may occur in isolation or in conjunction with other anomalies. The subtle findings make it a difficult clinical diagnosis. This is a case report of isolated foveal hypoplasia in a young girl diagnosed by optical coherence tomography.

In particular, after adaptively modifying the PK...

    See-saw nystagmus (SSN) is an uncommon disorder that consists of cycles in which one eye rises and intorts while the other depresses and extorts, followed by reversal of the pattern. It typically causes debilitating symptoms including oscillopsia that interfere with activities of daily living....

    Kestenbaum surgery is performed for nystagmus-related abnormal head posture, and symmetrically changes the position of both eyes to shift the null point to the primary position. Most patients with infantile nystagmus have their null point zone in a lateral gaze position. Less frequently, surgery...
