     It is important to sort out the understanding of teleophthalmolgy fundus photography diagnosis  to improve the quality of distance ophthalmic medical service. The quality of fundus photos determines the quality of the diagnosis. The basic requirements of fundus photos are correct position and accurate focusing and clear image. Single fundus photo plays an important role in the screening and diagnosis of common blinding diseases, such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, age related macular degeneration. However, it can't find peripheral fundus lesion, also cannot determine the stereospecificity of the lesion. In the absence of other clinical data, there is a risk of misdiagnosis and missed diagnosis. The remote consultation on fundus diseases based on fundus photos is facing the challenges, so it is significant to set classification standard of remote consultation on fundus diseases, and evaluate it objectively and comprehensively. When writing the report of image reading, it is important to pay attention to the medical history and complaint, emphatically describe fundus signs with differential diagnosis significance, make a diagnosis carefully and provide treatment suggestion more.

     Emotional tears, stimulated tears and basic tears have with their own origin, mechanism, function and excluded paths. We focus on the controversial points in basic tear secretion mechanism, and according to our clinical observation results we put forward the hypothesis that "periodic blink is the power source of secrete basal tear”. We describe in this paper that the periodic blink movement starting basal tear secretion of tear function mechanism and operation. The eyelid movement promotes two tear rivers become one again divides into two, which periodically updates the front tear film, and at the same time blink movement squeezing and relaxing extrusion lacrimal sac, pulling the canalicular wall produces lacrimal pump action. The front tear film is evaporated out and at the same time drives the tear rivers and orderly migrating to the tear lake, which is the lacrimal non-tube section part. Lacrimal pump acts to take tears from the tears lake into the lacrimal duct to exclude. There is mucous membrane between the junction of lacrimal sac, lacrimal canaliculus and nasolacrimal duct. The directional swing of the nasolacrimal duct cilium makes basic tear transitional to the nasolacrimal duct outlet, and tear degasification enters the respiratory airflow, discharge or inhalation. This article explains the necessity of lacrimal system including the conjunctiva, eyelids and conjunctival sac, eyelid blinking. We firstly propose some new concepts, such as the ordinary tear, vaporization of lacrimal duct and lacrimal non-tube section part, tube section part and the connection point of the two section parts.

     Objective To investigate the variation of retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in patients with the mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and Alzheimer's disease (AD). Design Case-control study. Participants 3122 residents over 50 years old(including 50 years old) who came from four communities of Haidian District and three natrual villages of Yufa town in Daxing District were investigated, 2511 subjects who had complete data were include into the study and the subjects with glaucoma were removed. 47 subjects were diagnosed as MCI, 10 cases were AD and 2454 cases were normal cognition; 167 cases were randomly selected as normal control group from cognitively normal subjects according to distribution characteristics of the case group,whose sex and age were matched with the case group. Methods Initially, MMSE scales was used to test subjects’ cognitive function; then, the subjects who were abnormal on MMSE with ADL, CDR and Hachinski ischemia index were evaluated according to the standard of illiterate group ≤19 scores, primary-school group ≤22 scores, middle school graduated above group ≤26 scores; eventually, the patients with MCI and AD were screened out according to medical history and cognitive function scores. The temporal, nasal, upper pole and lower pole RNFL thickness of all subjects were detected and measured with Heidelberg OCT instrument. The RNFL thickness between MCI group, AD group and normal control group were compared. Main Outcome Measures RNFL thickness. Results Compared with the normal control group, the RNFL thickness in the temporal side, upper pole and the average in MCI group and AD group was significantly thinner(all P<0.05). The RNFL thickness of every quadrant in AD group were thinning trend compared with MCI group, but there was significant difference only in temporal (P<0.05). Conclusion Compared with normal cognitive functions individuals,RNFL thickness in the temporal and upper pole was significant thinner in MCI and AD patients; RNFL thickness of the temporal quadrant in AD patients was thinner than MCI patients. So the RNFL thickness, especially in the temporal quadrant, might be used as early objective indicators for monitoring cognitive dysfunction. (Ophthalmol CHN, 2014, 23: 231-234)

    Objective To observe the efficiency and safety of 0.1% sodium hyaluronate (SH) eye drops and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) eye drops in simplex dry eye and dry eye after LASIK. Design Randomized controlled study.  Participants 70 cases with simplex dry eye (group Ⅰ) and 40 post-LASIK cases (group II) from January 2012 to August 2012. Method There were two subgroups in group I and group II respectively. 0.1% SH (A) and bFGF (B) eye drops were used randomly, four times a day for 14 days in group I and 30 days in group II. Changes of symptoms and signs were observed at different times. Dry eye symptoms including asthenopia, foreign body sensation, eye dry, burning sensation, swelling sensation, ophthalmodynia, conjunctiva congestion and photophobia were scored using questionnaire survey. Main Outcome Measures Score of dry eye symptoms, tear break-up time (BUT), Schirmer TestⅠ, corneal fluorescein staining (FL), symptoms changes of self-evaluation. Results Ocular symptoms and signs improved significantly after treatment in both subgroups of group Ⅰ (P<0.05). 0.1% SH eye drops was better than bFGF eye drops in improving asthenopia (P=0.006) and ophthalmodynia (P=0.040) at 14 days after treatment (P<0.05). SH was better to improve BUT (P=0.055) and Schirmer TestⅠ (P=0.573), and bFGF was better to reduce corneal fluorescein staining (P=0.375), but the different was not significant. Significant change of symptoms in patients using SH eye drops and bFGF eye drops were 94.3% and 78.6%, respectively. In group II, there were symptoms in 1 and 3 days after LASIK, and improved in 10 and 30 days post-operation. SH eye drops was better than bFGF eye drops in improving foreign body sensation (P=0.004), burning sensation (P<0.001), swelling sensation (P=0.005) and conjunctiva congestion (P=0.007). BUT and Schirmer TestⅠdecreased in 10 days after LASIK, but increased in 30 days, than that of 10 days after operation (groupIIA BUT: P=0.142, Schirmer TestⅠ: P=0.053; groupIIB BUT: P=0.006, Schirmer TestⅠ: P=0.010). Corneal fluorescein staining aggravated in 10 day after LASIK, and improved in 30 days, with significant differences (groupIIA P=0.005, groupIIB P=0.079).

    Glaucoma is a lifelong disease and irreversible ocular disease causing blindness, which is still not possible to restore the normal visual function even after appropriate treatment. The disease can’t be cured, just being slowed progression. Nowadays, there are three kinds of treatment of glaucoma, such as drugs, laser, or surgery, to reduce the intraocular pressure (IOP) to vary as much as possible for each patient to achieve the "target IOP." The commonly used anti-glaucoma surgery is trabeculectomy, which can significantly reduce IOP peak and fluctuation, with high success rate, but there are still some risks and complications. Doctors and patients should make a decision cautiously. Many factors affect the surgical outcome, so doctors should pay more attention to deal with the glaucoma, especially refractory glaucoma.
