Kam KR, Sullivan P, 2016, Microsurgical Skills, Training in Ophthalmology, 2nd Edition, Editors: Sundaram, Barsam, Barker, Khaw, Publisher: Oxford University Press, ISBN: 9780199672516
Safe ophthalmic surgery requires the surgeon to have the ability to select the best instruments for a particular task, knowledge of the most effective way of using each instrument, and knowledge of the limitations and side effects of the use of each instrument. This chapter focuses on microsurgical skills. It begins with an introduction to the use of forceps and the way they are used to grasp tissues. It then goes on to discuss toothed forceps, sutures, suturing tissues, and tying a surgeon’s knot. The chapter also presents a number of surgical scenarios, such as suturing a leaking corneal wound, suturing skin during a lateral tarsal strip operation, repairing full-thickness corneal lacerations, and repairing scleral lacerations.

Kam KR, Ong HS, Bunce C, et al., 2015, Sensitivity and specificity of the AdenoPlus point-of-care system in detecting adenovirus in conjunctivitis patients at an ophthalmic emergency department: a diagnostic accuracy study, British Journal of Ophthalmology, ISSN: 1468-2079
Background To estimate the diagnostic accuracy (sensitivity and specificity) of the AdenoPlus point-of-care adenoviral test compared to PCR in an ophthalmic accident and emergency service. These findings were compared with those of a previous study.Methods This was a prospective diagnostic accuracy study on 121 patients presenting to an emergency eye unit with a clinical picture of acute adenoviral conjunctivitis. AdenoPlus testing was carried out on one eye of each patient and a PCR analysis was also performed on a swab taken from the same eye. AdenoPlus and PCR results were interpreted by masked personnel. Sensitivity and specificity for the AdenoPlus test were calculated using PCR results as the reference standard.Results 121 patients were enrolled and 109 met the inclusion criteria. 43 patients (39.4%) tested positive for adenovirus by PCR analysis. The sensitivity of the AdenoPlus swab in detecting adenovirus was 39.5% (17/43, 95% CI 26% to 54%) and specificity was 95.5% (63/66, 95% CI 87% to 98%) compared to PCR.Conclusions The AdenoPlus test has a high specificity for diagnosing adenoviral conjunctivitis, but in this clinical setting, we could not reproduce the high sensitivity that has been previously published.
