The oral health care needs of visually impaired children are needed. <strong>Purpose:</strong> To provide a better understanding that can guide ophthalmologists about the importance of comprehensive dental care for children with visual impairments. <strong>Review:</strong> Factors that respond to the need for oral health care in visually impaired children are lack of ability to carry out oral hygiene habits, lack of knowledge on the part of health personnel to provide services adapted to the needs of this population, absence of promotion and education programs, and lack of public policies on oral health. This article discusses the dental aspects of visual impairment, its implications for obtaining dental care, associated oral conditions, and medical complications. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> It is imperative to prioritize the implementation of preventive methods and oral health education among visually impaired children. The function of the dentist is significant in the management of children with such conditions. Ophthalmologists should collaborate with dentists who possess a strong drive to provide care for children with special needs such as visual impairment and will discover that this endeavor offers significant opportunities to be an enriching experience.</p> 2024-05-23T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Shafiya Fildza Nisrina, Rozalina Loebis Kimura's Disease Finding on Ocular Adnexal Mass 2023-11-11T14:07:19+07:00 Nonidha Tiendie Susy Fatmariyanti Ridholia Ridholia <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Kimura's disease is an unknown chronic lymphoproliferative inflammatory disease affecting the skin, soft tissues, and lymph nodes. Until September 2020, only 200 cases of Kimura's disease were reported worldwide, however, their exact incidence is unknown. Here, we are interested in reporting a patient with Kimura's disease of the ocular adnexa due to its rarity and to enhance the knowledge of ophthalmologists about confirming the diagnosis of Kimura's disease. <strong>Case Presentation:</strong> A 40-year-old female presented with a chief complaint of a mass on her left nasal orbit for the last year. The mass gradually increased for six months, and it was painless. The systemic laboratory workup revealed eosinophilia and increased serum IgE. Contrast CT-Scan revealed a benign tumor, suspect dermoid cyst. She underwent surgery, and the histopathologic showed Kimura's disease. The patient was followed up on a scheduled basis, and there was no recurrence during four months of monitoring. <strong>Conclusions:</strong> A clinical, systemic laboratory, and histopathological examination is required to confirm the diagnosis of Kimura's ocular adnexa disease and determine the best therapy for the patient due to the high recurrence rate. Combining surgical excision with postoperative radiation is recommended as the most effective treatment in terms of controlling the residual lesion and minimizing the recurrence rate while causing the fewest side effects. Eosinophil screening regularly is advised to evaluate the recurrence rate.</p> 2024-03-31T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Nonidha Tiendie, Susy Fatmariyanti, Ridholia Ridholia Flap Striae: Managing and Understanding Post-LASIK Complication 2023-12-06T18:21:33+07:00 Auliya Khoirunnisa Lady Sherly Nuramalia Risnanda Putri Rasyda Dini Dharmawidiarini <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Flap striae is the most common postoperative complication, with a frequency ranging from 0.033% to 3.5%, according to studies involving over 1000 ocular cases. There is only one case in our hospital in 2023. In this case report, we will present a case of flap striae in a tertiary hospital because our findings are unusual and essential in symptomatic therapy and visual rehabilitation. <strong>Case Presentation:</strong> A 19-year-old female came with a chief complaint of impaired vision in her left eye for the past two weeks, followed by inability to focus, discomfort of the eye, a sensation of foreign body, and glare that occurred three days after she underwent bilateral myopia laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery. A post-LASIK assessment found that both eyes had visual acuity 10/10, and the left eye's visual acuity dropped to 6/10. Slit lamp examination revealed flap striae were running from the superonasal to the inferolateral quadrant. The thickness disparities were measured using optical coherence tomography (OCT), ranging from 653 to 689 μm. The OCT pictures revealed a gap on the temporal side as well. This patient was diagnosed with flap striae and a flap repositioning procedure was performed. <strong>Conclusions:</strong> A flap repositioning surgery was performed to increase visual acuity and eliminate striae.</p> 2024-04-01T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Auliya Khoirunnisa, Lady Sherly Nuramalia, Risnanda Putri Rasyda, Dini Dharmawidiarini Salt Water Induced Blepharitis: A Lifestyle-Related Case from a Coast of Java 2024-01-26T02:06:15+07:00 Yuda Pradana Ki Ajeng W. N. Prinasetya <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Blepharitis is a disease that is often countered. This condition could occur in all ages, sexes, and ethnic groups. Several factors can be the cause of blepharitis. However, blepharitis cases caused by saltwater have never been reported. <strong>Case Presentation:</strong> There was a case of a 62-year-old woman who came to the hospital complaining of a foreign body sensation in both eyes. Through examination, it was found that the eyelashes looked dirty with brownish-yellow deposits. Management by doing eyelid hygiene, giving ofloxacin eye drops, NaCl / KCl eye drops, and hygiene education had been done. <strong>Conclusions:</strong> Blepharitis is a frequently encountered case. However, blepharitis caused by salt water has not been reported. Through this case, it could be learned that the patient's lifestyle and geographical location of the patient's residence must be of particular concern to the clinician.</p> 2024-04-08T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Yuda Pradana, Ki Ajeng W. N. Prinasetya Amelanotic Choroidal Melanoma with Extraocular Extension in a 51 Year-Old Female: A Rare Case 2024-02-06T01:59:37+07:00 Octarina Ervianti Delfitri Lutfi <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Melanoma is a dangerous malignancy primarily involving the choroid, ciliary body, or iris. The most frequent primary intraocular malignant tumor is choroidal melanoma. The tumor most often affects Caucasians of Northern Europe ranging between the ages of 50 and 80. Most choroidal melanomas are pigmented, however, non-pigmented or mixed pigmented and non-pigmented forms can also happen. Compared with other amelanotic choroidal lesions, amelanotic choroidal melanoma showed markedly greater basal diameter, thickness, frequent connection with subretinal fluid, and ultrasonic hollowness. Extrascleral extension is currently detected in 10% to 28% of choroidal melanoma patients, and the mortality rate is much greater than in those without the extension. <strong>Case Presentation:</strong> We reported a rare case of extraocular extension in a 51-year-old female patient with amelanotic melanoma. The primary complaint was a painful and bleeding mass on her left eye that had developed two months prior to admission. On the conjunctiva of the left eye, there was a solid, palpable mass measuring 4 x 3.5 x 1 cm. It was red, well-defined, and had a hard, solid consistency. It was fixed at the base, had minimal bleeding, and pressed on her eyeball from the inferolateral direction. The cornea appears clear, and there is no light perception in visual acuity. The orbital focus computed tomography scan revealed an Enhancing solid mass containing a fat component. The mass was in the left intraocular, extending from intraconal to extraconal. <strong>Conclusions:</strong> Amelanotic melanoma with extraocular extension is a rare condition that can be difficult to detect due to its unclear clinical symptoms and wide range of possible causes. Patients and their families must be educated to receive the appropriate first therapy and prevent the illness from worsening. Melanoma management depends on several factors: tumor size, location, related characteristics, opposite eye status, systemic status, and patient preference. Orbital exenteration is one of the management options for choroidal melanoma with significant extraocular extension. By the time ocular treatment begins, the patient's survival may already be predetermined, and this realization could impact how uveal melanoma is treated in the years to come.</p> 2024-04-23T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Octarina Ervianti, Delfitri Lutfi
